Heard a stat the other day (god, they are becoming my favourite words this week ;)

It is very rare for 1 of the big 3 to beat the other 2 in a tournament. So, whoever wins, I have Joker for the final.

Also, I don't know if this is a good stat for Serena or bad. It could turn bad if she doesn't finish points in under 4 shots.

If Williams makes the final, then it is vital Serena wins the point quickly or else she is dead meat to Halep/Svitolina, who will get the balls back and they will make her run, unlike the other players Serena has faced. Halep especially has been training for Wimbledon and not the French supposedly. It is either going to be Wimbledon 2016 or Wimbledon 2018 finals for Serena. They were both against Kerber. One, her serve and return won her the match. The other just didn't and she was thrashed.

Of course, Strycova could win tonight and all this is moot. Wouldn't shock me if Strycova does win the Tournament, She retires on the spot. Has already announced that she is unsure if she is returning next year. She is still in the doubles as well. What a tournament.

Halep was clinical and showed her big game experience against Svitolina, controlling court positioning for most of the match.

Interesting that she and her team made wimbledon the focus this year, instead of roland garros. Paid off in a huge way. She certainly has earnt a chance at a second slam title. Has now made the finals of AO, FO and W.

Haven’t watched since the Kyrgios and Barty exits.

Serena walks to the title from here, doesn’t she? I mean Serena has a good record vs everyone but she always seems to beat Halep

Halep won 25/32 of points which over 9 shots.

On that form, she can beat Serena. Really impressive. She served well, which was important and should be important in the final
