    I might just be a little more critical of her because I thought 4 years ago she would get multiple and just shocked she hasnt yet

    Can you help me out? What’s the best way to watch? I’m home and initial glance at NBC app, that they created like 16 years ago and done multiple summer/winter games, and it’s still absolute garbage.

    I've been at the mercy of whatever match they are showing on tv

    Yeah, Olympic Channel has the tennis and at the mercy of their choice of match. I'm sure it's streaming somewhere but I've got no clue.

    Olympic channel shows the center court and some other. NBCOlympics.com you sign in with your cable provider. Not sure if they have all the matches or not

    Thank you. Literally don’t understand how they manage to blow this every single year. I believe one year I was able to watch every single soccer match, but that doesn’t appear even remotely possible again. It’s also fine because I need to sleep, just so dumb.

    Good Pliskova out to Giorgi.

    One of Giorgi, Svitolina, Badosa or Vondrousova will make the Final.

    Wow. Georgi actually turned up for more than one round. :laugh:

    Being as this is the Olympics, I fully expect the finalist to be Vondrousova or Badosa... :facepalm:

    I got nothing against Osaka, but she is hard to cheer for. She just doesn’t have much of a personality (at least publicly), so it’s hard to be a fan. I’m not against her, but she just isn’t fun to watch

    I don't know how you watch Naomi do what she does on a tennis court and not enjoy it, but that's just me. She's special.

    I'm not saying it's not important but there's going to be a whole lot of cringy takes is more what I was getting at.

    I get it if someone finds her boring. Also, she is 23, has a lot more time to develop both her game and in personality. I mean, IMO she is light years ahead of where she was when she won even her first major.

    So reactionary thoughts. Go Badosa and Medvedev at this point? I like Diego but he’s not beating Novak on HC. Any other thoughts?

    She's flying under the radar, but Muguruza hasn't dropped a set in the Olympics and I believe has the most hardcourt wins this season on the WTA. Tough matchup with Rybakina in the QF's but I like where she's at.

    Ahhh very small. If it were 5 sets, nobody would have a chance but with a 3 setter a lot better of a chance. I personally think Stef might get nightmares and memories of blowing that French Open to Novak
