    Bold call from Chris Fowler that someone will in fact win this set.

    Really liked the take of once it gets hotter they'll play better tennis.

    Idk, ma'am, I've seen lots of big matches with both players having nerves.

    Fowler and Evert acting as if they’ve never seen a nervy match between two players before is hilarious.

    She also is really against players starting young. She mentioned it When discussing Kenin and her dad earlier. But I’ve heard it all tournament from her

    All the grunts in this match lol my neighbors probably think I've got porn on

    Kenin is the first American other than a Williams sister to reach the Australian Open final since Lindsay Davenport in 1995. And Kenin is the first American woman to beat the No. 1 player at a major since Serena topped Venus at Wimbledon in 2002.

    It's really another ringing endorsement of the depth in the women's game. A 14-seed and an unseeded player in the final and neither are fluke runs and it's a Slam-worthy final with a winner that will be deserving.

    Men's equivalent of this Women's Final from a seeding/draw standpoint would be like Khachanov-Cilic? Bleh.

    Listening to Roger's presser post-match. Said that if the injury gotten worse during the match this morning, today would've been his first career in-match retirement. Said he talked to his team beforehand about it and they all were good with it if it had gone down that road.

    Interested to see if Thiem can continue his ridiculous momentum in tiebreaks against Djokovic - who seemingly never loses an important tiebreak in majors.
