Even though she was playing a 17 year old, she still showed mental toughness in the second and third sets.. If that was Stosur losing the first set like Barty did, she would have lost the second set 6-0.

Losing a set from 5-0 up in 14 minutes. Ugly from Barty. Surely loses the match from here.
Mate was very worried after that

She’s tough as nails is our Ash

Ain't it refreshing to have an aussie tennis player who is both talented and not a complete douchebag. Love me some Barty.

Anyone using Amazon Prime Video? Any good?
Have run out of things I want to watch on Stan and looks like there's some good stuff coming out on amazon in the next few months. Seems pretty cheap too.

Would this be a boilover, or not so much? I thought GSW were meant to be super dominant, but they don't even have home court advantage, so have Toronto had a better season?

Quick check of the NBA standings
1) Raptors with home court advantage due to having just one more win than GSW
2) Western conference (GSW) far more competitive than Eastern conference (Raptors) based on W/L of all teams

But that’s a guess as I don’t follow the NBA

GWS had a few injuries, but no one even expected Toronto to make it this far to begin with.

A few shades of West Coast coming from nowhere to win the flag last year.

That’s a lot of it. The other part is that the Warriors cruise to a large degree in the regular season because the talent gulf between them and the rest of the league is laughable. They just have to get to the playoffs healthy and they have enough evidence to know they’ll just roll through everyone.

The Warriors not giving much of a ****, with a much harder schedule, still results in about the same season as a peak Raptors regular season.

This is a significant boil over. Yesterday was the first time in I believe 1110 days that the Warriors were not the favourites for the Championship.

It’s not quite as West Coast as 2018 West Coast. Toronto were the #1 seed in the East last year and have been a strong team for years, but always find comical and heartbreaking ways to mess up in the playoffs.

They were the #1 seed last year and had their coach win Coach of the Year, then they ran into LeBron (again) and got eliminated (again) so the team said enough’s enough. Sacked the coach, made a ballsy trade for Kawhi Leonard on the last year of his deal, (even though it may have been selling the farm for only one year of Kawhi) and have been at another level this year. Would be an incredible way to win their first ever Finals.

Foolish of Curry to expend so much effort in a losing cause (without Klay) in game 3. I reckon that cost them today's game, and possibly the title. Not that it's over now, and not that the Raptors couldn't still win it if it was 2-2 right now, but this thing is looking over now unless KD somehow comes good in the next 48 hours.
