Important Barty win for YE#1. Andreescu getting knocked out by Osaka also helps, as she'll be a threat to the end. Thrilled for Millman as well, winnable SF.

Millman should be ranked 58 after this tournament which will be good (even higher if he wins, not likely). I feel like he has had some crap draws this year in first rounds of big tournaments but he had quite a bit of luck last year at the US open so it all evens out in the end I suppose. A long as he makes the most of good draws and good patches in form he should be able to maintain a ranking of around 50 IMO which is good for him I think.

Very enjoyable 3 set. Both saved match points, Barty breaking back at 4-5. Ash played reqlly well in the opening set and then berten lifted. Barty made a lot of UE in the 3rd set, but cut those right down at the end.

I only discovered today ash is also ranked #1 in doubles. She will lose that ranking next week, but still an incredible effort to be ranked #1 simultaneously in both singles and doubles. Not many players in the last 15 years have achieved that. Maybe hingis was the last player to do it?

It's been a huge week for Barty rankings wise, especially with Pliskova losing in the first round. Has opened up a fair gap between the 2. My guess is ash won't play again til schenzen, but Pliskova will probably play the kremlin cup.
