    I doubt it. So far he hasn't seemed to learn anything about scheduling, and he isn't exactly a novice anymore. But I suppose one can always hope.

    A bit surprised M Zverev lost so easily. He injured?

    He won just last week in Antalya I think. Maybe he was tired?

    I've said before that I think the French is the only slam left where she has any shot of making the semis. I'll consider her a lower tier contender there for another 2-3 years.

    Given hwr year, ahe was my pick. Commentators suggested she was ill or sick, I believe. Surely she wasnt close to 100%

    She was mine as well, with a slight question mark. I didn't see the match. Could the injury that she pulled out with at Eastbourne have a played a role?

    Sasnovich did to Petra, what Vinci did to Serena at the US Open. It was craftiness that did her in today.

    I would think, but if so, Petra didnít let on in the press conference at all. I just canít see why else she would lose 6-0 in the final set. Thatís not nerves.
