    Konta has defeated Stephens, in straight sets. It'll be interesting to see which way the pendulum swings for those two this season.

    I put Konta down as comeback queen in the prediction thread but didn’t finish it off yet. A lot of her game is mental, and she’s been saying how much of a good place her head is with her new coach. And Sloane isn’t known for being a mental giant. The WTA will be Wacky Tennis Adventures again this year no doubt

    He must lead the tour in second-serve aces. He’s the only one who goes for them regularly.

    Cant remember when I last watched an entire Kyrgios match before the Harrison match last night. He is maddening. I sympathize with his struggles in the abstract. But it’s hard to watch. I dont know if he’s not taking it seriously or if he’s just not interested in winning if it means playing a different style (for starters, thoughtfully).

    Nadal out of Brisbane with a "thigh strain." Why did I think it safe to pick him for my AMITS team? Also screwed a lot of people in predictions (I only put him in semis though.)
    Thanks for the medal Johanna!

    Re: WTA P, ATP 250 Brisbane 12/31/18 - 1/6/19

    Because he usually plays well in Australia, Brisbane was a soft draw and after almost three months of being cryogenically asleep somewhere in Mallorca, you would assume that a booboo in his thigh would not keep him out of some proper preparation for the Aussie.
    Says the other guy that has Nadal in his AMITS teams. He is both the strongest and most frail player on the tour. Like I said a long time ago: he is a 1960's Ferrari. An amazing piece of machine... that breaks down and needs a complete tuneup after every tankful.

    2018 US Open semifinalists ... didn't play each other. Great contrast in style. It'll be interesting to see how Osaka handles Sevastova's slicing and off-pace stuff.

    Ben Rothenberg pointed out on Twitter that he's only completed 1 of his last 18 hard court event entries (starting in late 2017). Last year he retired during the AO and USO, won Toronto, and withdrew from everything else.

    I'm guessing he's super banged up all the time, but just plays through the pain for his most important tournaments (clay and slams).

    Re: WTA P, ATP 250 Brisbane 12/31/18 - 1/6/19

    Goerges comes back to defeat Bouchard in 2:31. She lost the first set, and was down 3-0 in the third set.

    At 3-3 in the third-set tie-breaker, Goerges lost her grip on the racquet as she served, and both it and the ball landed near (her) service line.

    Quite windy conditions, lots of ball-tossing and -catching, with the wind generally (but not always) blowing from one end of the court to the other.
