Kerber's trying to hit her balls too flat. She's being too aggressive and is putting random balls into the net as a result. Needs to just lengthen the rallies.

Does Halep not have an apparel sponsor? AO hat and doesn't look like anything on her dress?
No she doesn't! From what I can read into it, Adidas did not offer her enough to renew her contract. Not blonde, not American, not from a popular country. So despite being number 1 and a possible title winner here, she is uncontracted to an apparel sponsor. She bought this "lucky red dress" online before the tournament started.

Bit of everything really. Halep playing well. Kerber playing poorly. Combine those two points with Kerber's serve always being a bit of a liability and we are where we are at.

Wow. We're going to 3 sets. Wouldn't have thought it possible after those first 4 games of this match. But Kerber has settled a bit and (most significantly) Halep has revived old bad habits.
