Still think Kenin can win this match. Swiatek played very well in that set, Kenin did well to stick pretty close throughout. Very enjoyable opening set, but I've hit the wall. Love Kenin's backhand and Swiatek's overall aggression.

She is so good to watch swiatek. A hate players who don't have anything at the net and all about power

Kenin is really making her work a lot harder than anyone else.

Kenin crying is not unusual. Let's just say she would make a terrible poker player. Wears her emotions on her sleeve and nothing wrong with that. Felt sorry for her after she came back. That first set was very competitive. The end of that last set was a forgone conclusion.

PS. Just give the player the mic.

Well, she cries before matches too, apparently was wrecked with nerves before the aus open final. That's just her personality.

Women's tennis just seemingly finding stars left, right and centre. Going to be interesting how it all shapes up over the next few years

Unbelievable from Swiatek, didn't drop a set all tournament...

You could have given me 20 picks at the start of the tournament to back as a winner and I doubt I'd have included her.

Such an amazing difference between the men's and the women's game and the results.

This teenager can play. Well done - terrific tennis.
And women’s tennis looks like it has a few youngsters emerging. Serena on the way out-all ok.

That Phillipe Chartier schedule. Those first 2 games are massive. Then a local hope and then some other guy. Not a bad days tennis. Would like to see a bit of Bouchard and Swiatek. Swiatek is one to really watch. how she is not yet seeded is a mystery to me.
yeah, I so-called this..............

(I so didn't. I knew she was good but this good....amazing. still shocked about dominate and calm she was for the 2 weeks. And that she lost to Rus in the first round of Rome)

there are so many grand slam champions running around on the girls side now.

Nole Nadal will be a 5 hour, 4 set match to Nadal.

Given some of the names that missed or women's seeds that failed early, this would have been a huge opportunity for Barty to win Slam #2 had of she gone over and played some clay.

Good call lol never seen her play before the French Open


Her performance against Halep was outstanding. Dominated from the start.

I hope she doesn't become like Ostapenko, and continues to perform well on a regular basis.

Nadal v Novak will be another long match but I won't be watching. I think Nadal will win
