    “What I love about Kenin is her short-term memory loss.” Ok Brad.

    Kenin left the court after first set and her doubles partner left her payer box. Coincidence?!? Probably.

    Kenin's not upset just her emotions getting to her though

    Fowler’s very good, but is at his worst when he tries to play armchair psychologist.

    She lost it the second she got broken. Credit to Kenin though, absolutely put her there with her shot making.

    As much as I love Garbine, pumped for Kenin. Did a small bet on her to win pre tournament. Seems like she works her ass off.

    Lot of bright young stars emerging,

    Lmao, she literally lost to the hottest hand and she’s the number one seed in the world. Btw, didn’t see anything up top for women’s rankings. Can’t imagine top shakes up that much and I believe only Osaka had the chance to overtake Barty.

    It’s insane. Her last five slam results are QF, Winner, 4R, 4R, SF. One hell of a flash in the pan.

    Yeah I think the writer thought they were being clever and wanted to use that phrase "Barty party" in an article. It's a bad article.

    In the second set at 4-4 Djokovic got a time violation and ended up losing the set and announcers have thought he's tired from not being challenged in the tournament until now.

    Has had his team bring him whatever crap he's been drinking to get rehydrated but has looked tired. He's chugged dark purple stuff and something that looks like grapefruit juice.

    Sure the Djokovic fans love hearing ESPN wondering if he can find his inner-Federer here.

    No telling what's in that stuff he's getting from the stands. But he could have over hydrated and start moving slowly again.

    Wouldn't call it an upset if he finished with only a few more than them but yeah unless other guys start to make bigger improvements he'll surpass then with ease.

    Just needs health, and yeah. If he stayed healthy the past few years he’d be leading by now. I definitely think Thiem is lined up beautifully to sneak some out at this point. I thought he was a mortal lock for a French with his clay game but I think he’d improved exponentially on hard surfaces. Not that he’s going to break any records obviously, just one guy who can at least make it entertaining.
