Having the week due to a persistent head cold has meant I get to watch the start of the Asia swing. Its been interesting as there are three tournaments being played. Zhengzhou being a Premier event was rained out yesterday, other tournament are in Hiroshima and Nanchang.

So this happened last night


The longest one I can remember. Of course, Kiki was involved.

Kiki won in 3 sets in the end after 2 hrs 47 mins, continuing her upward form trend.

also, another comeback. Tatiana Golovin, after nearly 10 years. she is only 31 though....

First all Japanese WTA final for around 20 years in Hiroshima. Nao Hibino will face Misaki Doi

Pliskova is in the final in Zhengzhou vs Martic. If she wins, she would be only 86 pts away from Barty...again.

I'm going for Matric she has been playing well all week and she didn't finish her 1/4 final on Friday until after 10pm and that went three sets. I was disappointed in Tomljanovic she could of played a lot better. Also Pliskova has a new coach with her this week.

Stosur running into a ball going out on one of her match points in her 2nd round match in China is one of the funniest things I have seen but she then actually won the match....

Well you should of seen Stosur today, she lost the first set then was trying to close out the second set in her semi final match she finally did it during a tie break. Then she won the third set comfortably and will play the final tomorrow. Unfortunately, it is raining in Osaka and they have only played one quarter final match today. I'm liking this tournament. Go Kerber.

Stosur actually has a 2-0 H2H record with Kenin in the last 12 months or so which is a surprise. Guess they were both tournaments the week before a slam though and they are always flukey depending upon motivation.

Kenin will be playing her 62nd match of the season which is quite a lot.

Another premier WTA event this week in Wuhan where Barty is playing. I'm watching Kerber and Puig atm and some of the line calling has been horrendous. Looking forward to this tournament as most of the top seeds will be playing. Also getting a lot of insight to players and their coaches from an European caller called Olga and a male commentator. Apparently Sablenka has split with Tursunov (Sp!).
