    Serena’s draw is insane this year – the one to watch. Whom will she meet in her 3rd round – Bethanie, Coco or Sloane?

    Novak & Nole again for the quarterfinals, if both will advance there.

    I’m thinking Sloane will be her third round opponent whom she will beat in two tight sets. I’m so pumped for this one!

    ^^Their matches are always interesting, especially given their “friendship” off-court. I will wait for another epic Grand Slam 3-setter between Madison Keys and Agnieszka Radwanska (and the first outside of Wimbledon).

    And then Sloane is gone. Not only her – 6 out of 15 seeds went out:

    Ana Ivanovic (7.) – last year 2nd round [but she had the toughest opponent, Dominika Cibulkova]
    Karolina Pliskova (8.) – last year 3rd round
    Carla Suarez Navarro (10.) – last year 3rd round
    Jelena Jankovic (21.) – last year 4th round
    Sloane Stephens (29.) – last year 2nd round
    Svetlana Kuznetsova (30.) – last year 1st round

    Not to mention Maria Sharapova withdrawing, which is unfair – as she has done it after the draw ceremony.  

    On the men’s side, the only true shocker is Kei Nishikori (4.), runner-up last year, losing to Benoit Paire.

    Pretty slow day yesterday apart from Safarova losing and withdrawing from doubles (sucks for Bethanie). Looking forward to seeing Serena try to make it 30 in a row!

    Kinda shame that Kiki Bertens wasn’t able to close that first set. I’m tired of watching Serena like this. Get your act together, please!

    That was the most shocking result not only in tennis but in entire sport in at least 30 years. Nothing in the world indicated that Roberta Vinci might win over Serena but she did it in style. Serena’s best performance of the tournament – if not the whole year – was 6:3, 6:3 against Madison Keys in 4th round. Disappointed by Simona Halep’s performance. Pennetta vs. Vinci surely made Italians extatic but I guess USTA is less enthusiastic about it.

    Normality prevailed in Men’s Singles at least with Roger Federer being more impressive so far than Novak Djokovic.

    I don’t know about you but the look of relaxed Pennetta and Vinci talking and laughing after the match was my favorite part of this WTA season. Very refreshing plus the finale actually didn’t have hard hitting that dominates today. Very nice!
