    Re: '19 Wmbldn Day 10 OoP & Discussion

    I was a little worried when Svitolina held for 3-2 in the second set because this was the third time this year when I've been watching that Halep appeared to be playing as well or better than at any point of her career, striking the ball with purpose and power and total accuracy. The problem is she ended up losing the first two matches, first against Mertens in the final of Doha and then against Bencic in the quarters of Dubai.

    Both times she was up a set and a break and appeared to be headed to a comfortable win. Both times her opponents raised their games and hers went down at the same time before she got whipped in the third set. This one had the same feel because she was dominating but was one bad service game away from trailing in the second set. This time, she won the last four games with ease.

    I knew she was playing better than her record and ranking indicated this year, having watched most of her matches, but at some point she needed to seal the deal to prove it. This is that tournament.

    I think this man has a lot to do with it. His family was sitting in her box today.

    How to post pictures.
    1. Find a photo you think everyone at TAT needs to see.

    2. Right click on the photo and select 'Copy image address'.

    3. Select the 'Insert Image' option in the menu bar of the 'Quick Reply' at the bottom of the page.

    4. Default selection is 'From Computer' so select 'From URL' at the top of that box.

    5. Right click in the 'URL' field and select 'Paste'. Uncheck the box that says 'Retrieve remote file and reference locally'. Click 'OK'.

    6. Add any notes or comments.

    7. Select 'Post Quick Reply' and allow us all to enjoy.

    Hope this helps. I know you're posting from phone or tablet so it's a little more difficult than from a computer.

    Get into the booth! Figure out when MJF is commentating next, and get there first.

    I don't think so. I’m saying the credentials office screws up. And I have a momentary dilemma about whether I should hand it back.

    Haha. I'd probably vote for letting someone else identify the mistake instead.

    Hope you manage to get a little fun out of it.

    Ha!

    I hope you at least kept the badge...the post-tournament framing of it is optional.

    I'm a Hoosier and a Taurus, so I definitely have not managed to get some fun out of it.
