Tsvetana/Vekic will be very easy on the eyes as well. 

So much of women's tennis these days is power AND beauty. I find myself watching for one and then being wowed by the other, back-and-forth. I'm not sure if the women's game has ever been more solid from a skill perspective and the rest is just icing on the cake.

ON A FITNESS NOTE:

I'm wondering how long a Sakkari vs Giorgi match could go before one of them started to wear down.

Their combined BMI is less than Serena's or Sloane's. (Let's not bring Klijsters into the convo, because she's had three kids and works all of the time off the court.)


ON A CONFIDENCE NOTE:

Sloane just looked confident pedaling on a stationary bike checking her texts & IG before ESPN went to commercial. She looks as cool and confident as I've seen her in years.

Sofia Kenin also looked like good in the snippet that they showed. She seems to be able to kick herself into hyper focus when needed.

Watching Serena and Gaspaaryan.  Even if she wins tonight I can't see Serena having the legs to win the tournament.

I saw this kid who's playing Murray a month or so ago.  Andy is going to have his work cut out for him.

Vika/Sabalenka on ESPN2. 

I would like to challenge Sabalenka to a drunken coconut oil wrestling match when the virus is over. Best 30 out of 59 rounds. 

There is something about her 22 y.o. bounce that I find intriguing in a wrestling manner.

She would crush you like a grape.

Of course she would, that’s why I want best 30 out of 59. She might get bored and want to start doing other things.

FAA dominated Murray.  Murray wasn’t bad, although he’s clearly lost power and speed, but that forehand from FAA is tremendous.

The men’s draw would be improved by Djoker losing.  I have no desire to see him win a depleted open.  I’d love to see one of the young bucks make a run.  Even if it’s Thiem who seems like a douchebag.

Shapovalov’s mother’s face is a stark reminder that Slavic skin does NOT age well.

I think that she came out of the womb smoking a Marlboro Red 100.

I can't believe coric is still in this thing.

He's now on the verge of winning it! Incredible comeback.

incredible determination.  this is one of those late-night high-intensity matches, with the normal crowd atmosphere, that would make lifetime fans of the US open.

Tsitsipotamus is the BIGGEST FUCKING LOSER at this year’s US Open. 

Saves Fritz from that distinction.

Amanda serving at 3-5 against Sakkari on ESPN2. 

Amanda playing like a teenager and Sakkari playing like a 20-something veteran. 

Amanda looks like she wasn’t allowed to warm up.

Now #1 seeds Babos/Mladenovic yanked from today’s schedule. These damn Frenchies can’t do anything right. 

Considering covid cases in France have spiked these past few weeks I'm not surprised they're fucking up protocol

Beauty prevails in a big upset:  Cirstea 2-6, 7-6, 6-4.  Onward and upward, my Transylvanian Siren. 

Muchova/Sorana 3-all in the first on ESPN3 now.

I think that Sloane wins. 

Partly because I detest Serena and partly because I think that she is playing better than Serena.

It's academic really considering the winner here will lose to Sakkari.

That was a pretty goddamn entertaining breaker. Sorana had 4-0 & 6-3, but young Muchova battled for the 9-7 win.

Hell, she’s 24, not that young.

sloane took the first set at 2.  she has serena on her heels.  it'd be fitting if serena just quit.

I’m just wondering what the excuse will be if Sloane closes her out. 

No way will it be “Sloane Stephens is a better player than I am when she plays her A game.”

Serena isn’t capable of crediting an opponent with being better. She is truly a miserable fucking human being.

Ugh serena takes the second at 2. Just letting sloane hit herself out of the match. Also serena's starting to make some shots.
