Ruud gets the 1st set, should be able to beat Molcan
Brilliant shot by Alcaraz !! The crowd roars, he's so well liked
I'm really hyped for tonight's (European POV) matches : Paul-Alcaraz, Medvedev-Kyrgios, Monfils-Cressy, Tiafoe-Fritz, Rune-PCB / Rybakina-Gauff, Serena-Bencic, Swiatek-Tomljanovic, Anisimova-Pliskova
Should be good tennis
Way too many UEs and short balls from Sloane. If you give Sakkari a ton of short balls in her strike zone then she's gonna eat you alive. Sloane's entire game plan basically evaporated after Game 5 of the third set.
Really good match through 2, but that 3rd set just felt off too me, I'm assuming fatigue played a role in that
Omg that was such a good winner to win the match.
Shapovalov played AGAINST Bopanna today in doubles. What happened to their partnership
That net cord is so American today.
Kalinskaya rocks the same outfit as Maria.
But no one can rock it like Maria does. Those shoulders 😍
Looks like Maria's sporting the new paint job for the Wilson Ultra. 💙
Let's close it out Maria!!!
Is that the new Ultra v4? I love the metallic paint on new Wilson racquets (Blade v8, Clash v2).
I think so. That deep red clash is 😍 too bad I hate playing with it lol
Read that there’s a lot of Greeks in Toronto so that’s nice for my girl.
Clearly someone’s never seen her workout regimen.
Seriously Sloane, what are you doing lol?
Just routine miss after routine miss. That miss at duece point was atrocious.
Surely that was a missed serve. Just lobbed it in right into Sakkari's strike zone. Not sure wtf that was, but it looked weird af
Goddamn I love Sloane’s FH
This third set is...it's not very good. Lots of UEs on routine shots.
And just as I was typing that out, damn that was a great point
What match are you watching?
Stephens just got broken due to another horrible UE. Sigh
I think they’re both playing incredible tennis. But Sloane’s level has dropped the last few games
Sloane on bp ✈️
Serena then Bianca in the two night session matches tomorrow. Holy drama.
That guy just got caught coaching, yeah?
How can you catch someone doing something legal?
I totally forgot it was! Ha!
Coaching is allowed for WTA outside of Slams
Unless they changed the rules
ATP now too right?
Oooh that’s right. Duh.
I trust neither of these players to close out this match. Something has to give
Way too many errors from Sloane rn
Sloane sitting down lmaoooo
Sakkari and the wide bh …
Dimindrey just beat Wimbledon champs in 3 sets! Dreamy pairing <3
Did Maria show her abs at Wimbledon? I can’t remember. I love this kit. My boobs wouldn’t love that top, but dang it works on her. I think I have a lady crush on Maria.
She was wearing the same outfit just in white
edit: and bless someone else thinking the kit is good. Someone in here earlier was saying it was hideous and garish and i’m like I love it
The kit is on point for Maria. It's like it was made for her. That person must be confusing it for Penko's outfit. 😂
She looks incredible
I’m surprised Wimbledon allowed it. I feel like midriff skin would be too much for the all England Club.
I remember seeing the same top on another player at Wimby. Without muscles it’s a completely different aesthetic. I like it a lot on Sakkari.
Don't we all? Her abs are impressive! Maria rocking the active -wear like a Greek goddess!
Yes. She had a very similar outfit.
stranger things really gave that song a resurgence. Wasn’t expecting the stadium to play Kate Bush lmao
Does anyone know why “come on” is the go-to phrase for players from pretty much any country?
Danielle Collins’s impact 💅
Try Lleyton Hewitt.
think it's just a tennis thing. lot's of people say come on/let's go in there native tongue too (eg idemo, vamos, allez)
They closed all the coffee shops at 1120PM wtf national bank open
kmaaaan sloane. i wanna see her win at least one more big title.
her loss in the 2018 final to halep must've hurt like hell
Sloane you are a headache my girl. A beautiful headache
Sloane’s mom is stunning. Loving the glasses.
dang Sakkari hella vocal she wants this win bad. But glad to see Sloane closing out the set
I remember Sakkari is jacked, but I’m still amazed every time I see her on court.
Chose lunch with tennis friends which means I missed the downfall of Maria but apparently I’m in time for the comeback.
Anyone watching Rublev/Dimi doubles? That's a spicy combo.
Also loving Dimi kits rn
Sloane, you can't keep doing this to me.
Not this BS again Sloane
at least Sakkari looks like her normal self here. Back in SJ tournament she was just so completely quiet and lifeless was so weird
Hurkacz just proved that he's an alpha in that win. (not just a nice guy)
I wasn’t going to hit the gym tonight, now seeing my girl Sakkari, I will make the trip.
Absolutely too good from Hurkacz, match points
Maybe one day Ruusuvuori will understand he’ll never be a real winner until he stops acting like a corpse on court.
Dude just can’t react to any single fucking thing that happens in the match good or bad.
I saw him slam the ball and act negative several times.
I don't think lack of emotions is the problem, it's the 7-8 double faults, and not pressuring from his returns. 0 for 5 on break point conversions, that will do it for him.
I’m so sleepy Maria make a comeback so I can take the train back home
Hurkacz: I am the Jedi !!!!!! I shall be the winner
I lost in a league match in 3 sets to a guy who I was 3-0 against. However, I feel good because I think I've finally figured out a pretty good backhand and return grip.
The issue with my game now is double faults, including 2 in the final game that made me lose the 3rd set 6-4
This Maria v Sloane match 😭😭 the WTA always delivering these crazy ass matches
Oh Maria, how the turntables...
If you think sakkari looks like a goddess you gotta see her in person
I have seen her in person it’s even better.
I don't think she looks like a goddess.
I *know* she looks like a goddess. I could only dream of being as fit as she is lmfao
Jedi Hubi, you better convert this ........ he does
A lesson to learn for Emil
5th or 6th double fault for Ruusuvuori, causing him some trouble. It's a 0-30 now. Here's the 0-40
Ruusuvuori just can't put pressure from his returns right now.
This is random but how do you order this shirt? Nothing happens when I click add to cart, and I don't see an option to choose a size or color
The website looks like its having issues right now, at least from the link you sent. Won't let me add it to the cart either, just shows up as a blank page. I'd say it could be a traffic issue (high traffic causing the page to crash), but I doubt that.
Likely will be fixed in 30 mins or so (I'd guess), most problems like this are fixed fairly quicky
Edit: Another explanation that's just as likely is that they just set up the page wrong, which would take slightly longer to fix but still would be fixed at some point. Hence there being no option to select size or color. Are other products working normally?
Thanks, I'll check back later
What was I thinking ordering Chinese before watching Sakkari. Sick of myself.
Don’t hit yourself Hubi
Hurkacz hits on himself on the head with his racquet
Hurkacz: Stupid me stupid me
Please Hubi, not another tiebreak
Sloane, can we please have a service game where ya don't have to face a BP? Cause it's really stressing me out.
Anyways, another clutch hold from Sloane. Saves yet another BP and goes up 3-1
Ruusuvuori needs to do better on returns and on his break chances. 0 for 5 from break chances so far.
Ruusuvuori nice in the clutch here, good save and we're still tied. \*Correction, on serve, not tied.
Damn Maria what did the ball ever do to you?
Shapo loses both doubles and singles in the same day, I think it might be time for an extended break from tennis for him cause all of this matchplay just seems to be exacerbating whatever issues he is having. I mean he's been putrid as of late
Sloane is so funny 😂
Damn what a gritty hold from Stephens!
lmao at Sloane audibly saying, “fucking A, man” after missing a shot
“Fuckin A man,” god I love Sloane
What the fuck is wrong with Hurkacz’s shots lately? It looks and sounds like he’s hitting a bowling ball
Why isn't Kerber participating?
she didn't play last year either. maybe she had a bad experience at one of these tournaments?
sad. i don't think she'll be seeded for uso
Maria sakkari’s crop top reminding me I need to go to the gym lmao
Believe it or not Andrey actually got a sports psychologist 😭 His coach told a fan yesterday.
Unreal plot twist but apparently it's "not working". I'm still glad both he and team finally decided to do this, hopefully he doesn't get discouraged. The big changes he promised weren't nothing after all!
Yeah, that bit was a bit disheartening but I am hopeful because takes a while to establish a relationship with a psychologist/therapist. I’m glad that Andrey isn’t as stubborn as I thought he’d be
Rublev 🤝 Sakkari
Finally getting a sports psychologist after years of denial. Also saying bweh.
Dammit Hubi WHY?!?!?
Couldn't return a single serve. Just bad.
Aww no Maria
This crowd likes Ruusuvuori. I like too and somewhat agree, still another set to go !
What a second serve ace by Hurkacz
Emil on some goat shit rn
Maria looking so good today everything is working and she’s not lifeless like she was last week.
Sakkari's game is so nice to watch. There's almost no wasted motion in anything she does.
Hurkacz is the next Berdych
Bruh, i can't even recall the last proper rally Hubi won. Emil putting in work right now.
I dont usually watch WTA, but coming from adf vs diego , ball seems like it has more pace in sakkari vs stephens. Do women play with more pace but less spin ?
Depends on the player. A player like Tormo plays with much more spin than pace, but a player like Sakkari or Ostapenko will play with much more pace than spin
More women tend to hit flatter, yes. That's why you'll hear people say Iga's forehand is "like an ATP shot".
OH no don't compare WTA to ATP that'll get you some down votes
Semi-Hot, and pretty off-topic, take:
Cressy is great for modern day tennis and we need more players with an aggressive style like he has in the top 50. I love Monfils, but I'll likely be rooting for Cressy tomorrow solely because so many players these days are either baseliners or servebots or a mixture of both (Zverev, Meddy, etc) that his style is refreshing. Cressy is a servebot too, but his aggresive serve-and-volley style is the change of pace that mens' tennis needed.
The thing I like most about him is that even on return he's just straight up aggression. No attempt to rally from the baseline, returns serves from inside the baseline, goes immediately for winners. Just keeps things fresh to have a player like him in the top 50 IMO
Diego’s grit is what made me a fan in the first place. Great comeback tonight!!
(Plz universe can he win a big title just once that’s all I ask)
Does the ball owe Sloane and Maria money?
Which racquet is Sakkari using today? I know her previous one was a Ultra. Is it just a new paint job?
I’m at the Maria Sloane game. DM for autographs
Apparently Maria has (finally?) gotten a sports psychologist and has been working on her mental game.
What a match for Schwartzman, wow, unreal performer
Thoughts on Mark Philippoussis joining Stef’s team? Other than him collecting DILFs of course.
Honestly he has very good taste lol
Fantastic defense from Diegoat.
Great great work by Diego to win that one
That rally was insane.
Sloane sticking with Darian King no matter what drives me nuts. I have no idea what he's ever done for her besides ultimately being moral support. Great, but that's not a coach. Notice when Kamau joined Sloane again in Guadalajara, she won her first title in four years.
I’m so obsessed with ADF he’s just so chaotic
Sakkari on a roll is intimidating af
Come on Sloane, need to pick it up cause going down an early break against Sakkari isn't a great formula for success
Diego serving for the match
This Maria and Sloane match…can’t decide who’s more beautiful 😍
amazing fight by Schwartzmann I must say. I hope he doesn't lose now.
Let’s go Diego!
She’s got the abs and back/shoulder muscles out today we are not worthy.
Maria's physique deserves its own trophy
It's good but I'm more impressed with Kanepi outlasting much younger opponents in the heat at 37yo!
I would not want to arm wrestle her.
Reminder: Emma FRAUDucanu won the espys
The ESPYs are just a popularity contest anyways, Emma is a great player with a ton of potential but it's tough to argue against the fact that there were more deserving WTA players (*cough* Iga *cough*)
ADF seems like he needs a smoke.
god damn fokina is so fucking trash HAHAHHA
Ya'll, I'm 99 percent sure that she was making a joke about her dog and not about Coco Gauff.
If it was about Gauff then yeah, very bizarre comment
Gauff being a fan favorite at the Canadian Open doesn't even make sense so yeah
Coco Andreescu is my fave.
People know Coco is the name of Bianca’s dog right
I was wondering why people were up in arms 😂
I don't think they do lmao.
Lol they do not. They think she was talking about Gauff
Fokina with 4 unforced errord yet again to break himself.
slow-start stephens plz take this
Fokina pulling a Fokina
Sakkari’s outfit I am looking respectfully.
Vamos Diego carajo !
Sloane Stephens gonna win
What do we think, will Maria soothe my beating heart or are we in for another two hour servegore rollercoaster
You made lol
Does anyone know who Bianca is playing next?
Yeah Cornet gonna take care of her 🤭
If Andreescu gets back to her previous form she could be Top Ten; she has a lot of talent and most importantly heart.
What did Bianca say??
She apologized for "not feeling well" and said if not for the crowd she wouldn't have won. Very emotional and honest for a post match interview.
I forgot how it feels to lose
Why Coco? Was she in the audience? So random
Perhaps she was talking about her dog? It’s also named Coco and was in the audience
That makes sense.
Coco is her dog 💀
Davidovich Fokina playing like WTA 4 unforced errors on his serve to make it an even 3rd set
Adidas outdoes themselves yet again. These new kits are so hideous and garish. It looks like some disco acid trip. What is wrong with their creative team?
My guy have you seen Grigor's outfit? Frankly I think Maria's kit looks dope on her
Maria could wear burlap and look gorgeous
Of course but the kit is cool imo. Idk everyone always hates on adidas, I feel like they have some(really) bad outfits but people totally ignore the good ones. Meanwhile Grigor rn is wearing a disaster and not a peep.
Maria’s kit is sick, pretty much all of tsitsipas kits(pink polo for example), the white polo kit at AO, felix at RG. There’s good mixed in with the bad
They all play pickleball and try to ruin tennis
trying their best to lure ostapenko back.
Crowd: Schwartzman ! Let's Go !!!!
The crowd wants Schwartzman to win !!!
[Like I said the other day ](https://www.reddit.com/r/tennis/comments/wiad2l/rtennis_discussion_sunday_august_07_2022/ijduot8?utm_medium=android_app&utm_source=share&context=3)
Embarrassing and weird Coco comment from Bianca
Coco is her dog and was in the audience.
She was talking about her dog coco
C'mon i need to know what she said😂
Can someone tell me the comment please?
What did she say?
