    This is the most WTA match ever. Vika not broken in the first set, Mugu broken just once. Vika has been broken 5 straight since the start of the 2nd and Mugu broken 4 of 6 service games.

    About to be 12 service games since the start of Set 2 with 10 breaks

    Nice win for Garbine. Vika just ran out of gas, which is to be expected.

    To me, this game is the match. If Diego breaks I like his chance, if not. I think Rafa stars the takeover

    Rafa is serving at 41% on first serve in the 2nd set. And has won 40% of first serve points. Unreal.

    Hm. That’s a good question. Will have to think on that one a little bit.

    I love his game, but Monfils has to be up there, even as he sits in the top-10 currently. One of the best juniors career and juniors resume that we’re ever going to see in the sport, and it’s turned into a very lucrative Tour career with lots of flash but very little of big substantive career wins and moments.

    Grigor another, though the expectations unfairly placed on him have a lot to do with that. The “baby Fed” stuff is something no one could live up too, but he’s another with tons of talent and just not a whole lot to show for it at the highest levels consistently.

    I will say I’m disappointed in FAA on the clay so far. For the past 2 years he’s been very good on it
