    Keys retired in the third set against Kerber. No word yet on Twitter or from the WTA on what it was. She was walking fine after the match, so it didn't look serious.

    First time Kerber has "won" back-to-back matches since mid-June, when she got to the Eastbourne final.

    Rest of play cancelled for the day due to rain.

    She had the trainer come out and look at her left foot I think. It looked like she was being treated for a blister but at the next changeover she took all of the tape and padding off.

    Jill Craybas was commentating and she, like Chanda, talked about the match and the strategy of each player.
    She pointed out over and over again that Madison needed to show more patience and work for a good shot not just try and hit a screamer to end the point quickly. Her coach told her pretty much the same thing and she tried it for awhile but went back to her usual hit hard and harder style of play every time Kerber pressed her a bit.

    I'm still surprised she retired though. Maybe she's in a hurry to get to Wuhan?
