Ruud gets the 1st set, should be able to beat Molcan


dannylenwinn

Brilliant shot by Alcaraz !! The crowd roars, he's so well liked


Efendiskander

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


UofLForTheWin

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


jsnoodles

Omg that was such a good winner to win the match.


shegotofftheplane

Shapovalov played AGAINST Bopanna today in doubles. What happened to their partnership


jsnoodles

That net cord is so American today.


shashamaneland

Kalinskaya rocks the same outfit as Maria.


meimaj

But no one can rock it like Maria does. Those shoulders 😍


meimaj

Looks like Maria's sporting the new paint job for the Wilson Ultra. 💙 Let's close it out Maria!!!


nutmac

Is that the new Ultra v4? I love the metallic paint on new Wilson racquets (Blade v8, Clash v2).


meimaj

I think so. That deep red clash is 😍 too bad I hate playing with it lol


shashamaneland

Sloane's Mom


jsnoodles

Read that there’s a lot of Greeks in Toronto so that’s nice for my girl.

Sakkaroids


jsnoodles

Clearly someone’s never seen her workout regimen.


UofLForTheWin

Seriously Sloane, what are you doing lol? Just routine miss after routine miss. That miss at duece point was atrocious.


UofLForTheWin

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


Big_booty_ho

Goddamn I love Sloane’s FH


UofLForTheWin

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


Big_booty_ho

What match are you watching?


UofLForTheWin

Sakkari-Stephens. Stephens just got broken due to another horrible UE. Sigh


Big_booty_ho

I think they’re both playing incredible tennis. But Sloane’s level has dropped the last few games


CarelessChoice2024

Sloane on bp ✈️


CarelessChoice2024

Sakkari 🚀


jasonkochel

Serena then Bianca in the two night session matches tomorrow. Holy drama.


LauraPtown

That guy just got caught coaching, yeah?


Big_booty_ho

How can you catch someone doing something legal?


LauraPtown

I totally forgot it was! Ha!


UofLForTheWin

Coaching is allowed for WTA outside of Slams Unless they changed the rules


ameliaSea

ATP now too right?


LauraPtown

Oooh that’s right. Duh.


legohotwing

I trust neither of these players to close out this match. Something has to give


CarelessChoice2024

Way too many errors from Sloane rn


kamikashi

Sloane sitting down lmaoooo


CarelessChoice2024

Sakkari and the wide bh …


DanaiDampa

Dimindrey just beat Wimbledon champs in 3 sets! Dreamy pairing <3


LauraPtown

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.


Classics22

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


meimaj

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. 😂


jsnoodles

She looks incredible


LauraPtown

I’m surprised Wimbledon allowed it. I feel like midriff skin would be too much for the all England Club.


CarelessChoice2024

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.


Ivonzski

Don't we all? Her abs are impressive! Maria rocking the active -wear like a Greek goddess!


MarbleEmperor

Yes. She had a very similar outfit.


kamikashi

stranger things really gave that song a resurgence. Wasn’t expecting the stadium to play Kate Bush lmao


[deleted]

Does anyone know why “come on” is the go-to phrase for players from pretty much any country?


Psychological_Bug676

Danielle Collins’s impact 💅


Nastypav12

Try Lleyton Hewitt.


Sad_Consideration_49

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)


throwaway739299292

They closed all the coffee shops at 1120PM wtf national bank open


Sad_Consideration_49

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


Big_booty_ho

Sloane you are a headache my girl. A beautiful headache


CarelessChoice2024

Sloane’s mom is stunning. Loving the glasses.


kamikashi

dang Sakkari hella vocal she wants this win bad. But glad to see Sloane closing out the set


lunchablegu

I remember Sakkari is jacked, but I’m still amazed every time I see her on court.


jsnoodles

Chose lunch with tennis friends which means I missed the downfall of Maria but apparently I’m in time for the comeback.


TuanNguyen-2507

Anyone watching Rublev/Dimi doubles? That's a spicy combo.


TuanNguyen-2507

Also loving Dimi kits rn


Lemurians

Sloane, you can't keep doing this to me.


Big_booty_ho

Not this BS again Sloane


kamikashi

at least Sakkari looks like her normal self here. Back in SJ tournament she was just so completely quiet and lifeless was so weird


dannylenwinn

Hurkacz just proved that he's an alpha in that win. (not just a nice guy)


LauraPtown

I wasn’t going to hit the gym tonight, now seeing my girl Sakkari, I will make the trip.


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Jazda!


dannylenwinn

Absolutely too good from Hurkacz, match points


matt_annechini

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.


dannylenwinn

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.


throwaway739299292

I’m so sleepy Maria make a comeback so I can take the train back home


dannylenwinn

Hurkacz: I am the Jedi !!!!!! I shall be the winner


itsniickgeo

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


Psychological_Bug676

This Maria v Sloane match 😭😭 the WTA always delivering these crazy ass matches


A-dab

Oh Maria, how the turntables...


throwaway739299292

If you think sakkari looks like a goddess you gotta see her in person


jsnoodles

I have seen her in person it’s even better.


UofLForTheWin

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


dannylenwinn

Jedi Hubi, you better convert this ........ he does A lesson to learn for Emil


dannylenwinn

5th or 6th double fault for Ruusuvuori, causing him some trouble. It's a 0-30 now. Here's the 0-40


AncientLyte

Chokkari


dannylenwinn

Ruusuvuori just can't put pressure from his returns right now.


jpark28

https://www.tennisexpress.com/NIKE-Mens-Rafa-Court-Dri-FIT-Seasonal-Tennis-T-Shirt-93787 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


UofLForTheWin

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?


jpark28

Thanks, I'll check back later


Big_booty_ho

What was I thinking ordering Chinese before watching Sakkari. Sick of myself.


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Don’t hit yourself Hubi


dannylenwinn

Hurkacz hits on himself on the head with his racquet Hurkacz: Stupid me stupid me


datdood04

Please Hubi, not another tiebreak


UofLForTheWin

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


dannylenwinn

Ruusuvuori needs to do better on returns and on his break chances. 0 for 5 from break chances so far.


dannylenwinn

Ruusuvuori nice in the clutch here, good save and we're still tied. \*Correction, on serve, not tied.


BVOelckers

Damn Maria what did the ball ever do to you?


UofLForTheWin

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


Psychological_Bug676

Sloane is so funny 😂


UofLForTheWin

Damn what a gritty hold from Stephens!


_rob___

lmao at Sloane audibly saying, “fucking A, man” after missing a shot


FreeKatKL

“Fuckin A man,” god I love Sloane


matt_annechini

What the fuck is wrong with Hurkacz’s shots lately? It looks and sounds like he’s hitting a bowling ball


MarbleEmperor

Why isn't Kerber participating?


Sad_Consideration_49

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


[deleted]

Maria sakkari’s crop top reminding me I need to go to the gym lmao


Psychological_Bug676

Believe it or not Andrey actually got a sports psychologist 😭 His coach told a fan yesterday.


DanaiDampa

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!


Psychological_Bug676

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


jsnoodles

Rublev 🤝 Sakkari Finally getting a sports psychologist after years of denial. Also saying bweh.


PtboFungineer

Dammit Hubi WHY?!?!? Couldn't return a single serve. Just bad.


jsnoodles

Aww no Maria


dannylenwinn

This crowd likes Ruusuvuori. I like too and somewhat agree, still another set to go !


dannylenwinn

What a second serve ace by Hurkacz


PlayboiCartiBallsak6

Emil on some goat shit rn


jsnoodles

Maria looking so good today everything is working and she’s not lifeless like she was last week.


anuhobo

Sakkari's game is so nice to watch. There's almost no wasted motion in anything she does.


dannylenwinn

Hurkacz is the next Berdych


disfadbidge007

Bruh, i can't even recall the last proper rally Hubi won. Emil putting in work right now.


Coffeetennislove

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 ?


UofLForTheWin

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


jasonkochel

More women tend to hit flatter, yes. That's why you'll hear people say Iga's forehand is "like an ATP shot".


mezzo5588

OH no don't compare WTA to ATP that'll get you some down votes


UofLForTheWin

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


_rob___

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)


White_Nothing

Does the ball owe Sloane and Maria money?


Signal-Current92

Which racquet is Sakkari using today? I know her previous one was a Ultra. Is it just a new paint job?


throwaway739299292

I’m at the Maria Sloane game. DM for autographs


jsnoodles

Omg what


throwaway739299292

Ya


jsnoodles

Apparently Maria has (finally?) gotten a sports psychologist and has been working on her mental game.


dragonsky

What a match for Schwartzman, wow, unreal performer


jsnoodles

Thoughts on Mark Philippoussis joining Stef’s team? Other than him collecting DILFs of course.


rubbish_bin030121

Honestly he has very good taste lol


DoubleFaulty1

Fantastic defense from Diegoat.


SmoothLettuce

RALLIES


Denny_Hayes

Great great work by Diego to win that one


White_Nothing

That rally was insane.


ExcuseYou-What

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.


jsnoodles

I’m so obsessed with ADF he’s just so chaotic


rogersterlin

Sakkari on a roll is intimidating af


UofLForTheWin

Come on Sloane, need to pick it up cause going down an early break against Sakkari isn't a great formula for success


SmoothLettuce

Diego serving for the match 🫣


Psychological_Bug676

This Maria and Sloane match…can’t decide who’s more beautiful 😍


Denny_Hayes

amazing fight by Schwartzmann I must say. I hope he doesn't lose now.


Tennisluver75

Let’s go Diego!


jsnoodles

She’s got the abs and back/shoulder muscles out today we are not worthy.


Poppiee

Maria's physique deserves its own trophy


Nastypav12

It's good but I'm more impressed with Kanepi outlasting much younger opponents in the heat at 37yo!


White_Nothing

I would not want to arm wrestle her.


jsnoodles

I would


AncientLyte

Reminder: Emma FRAUDucanu won the espys


UofLForTheWin

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*)


Utinnni

ADF seems like he needs a smoke.


mezzo5588

god damn fokina is so fucking trash HAHAHHA


UofLForTheWin

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


shutupdotca

Gauff being a fan favorite at the Canadian Open doesn't even make sense so yeah


jsnoodles

Coco Andreescu is my fave.


Pisces_Mermaid

People know Coco is the name of Bianca’s dog right


annastacia1

I was wondering why people were up in arms 😂


White_Nothing

I don't think they do lmao.

BVOelckers

You made lol


Psychological_Bug676

Does anyone know who Bianca is playing next?


No-Asparagus3348

Cornet


Psychological_Bug676

Yeah Cornet gonna take care of her 🤭


Nastypav12

If Andreescu gets back to her previous form she could be Top Ten; she has a lot of talent and most importantly heart.


Iiiifoundsweetroad

What did Bianca say??


Nastypav12

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.


Psychological_Bug676

I forgot how it feels to lose

youngcadadia22

Why Coco? Was she in the audience? So random


Signal-Current92

Perhaps she was talking about her dog? It’s also named Coco and was in the audience


youngcadadia22

That makes sense.


Pisces_Mermaid

Coco is her dog 💀


mezzo5588

Davidovich Fokina playing like WTA 4 unforced errors on his serve to make it an even 3rd set


Jeffersons_Mammoth

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?


Classics22

My guy have you seen Grigor's outfit? Frankly I think Maria's kit looks dope on her


Jeffersons_Mammoth

Maria could wear burlap and look gorgeous


Classics22

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


BattleMage2000-

They all play pickleball and try to ruin tennis


Sad_Consideration_49
