    The wheels are quickly coming off of Svitolina. Another poor showing, and I think the commentators said she's still looking for her first top 40 win of the year. Yikes!

    Kenin just lost to a surging Rybakina who wasn't fazed by her "intimidation" tactics (Croft's words not mine).

    there was an interesting moment when Rybakina, who had been criticized by Croft for being too passive, tried to make a point with her coach who told her "don't talk back and listen to me".

    The optics of OCC.

    Svitolina, Bencic, Kenin, Yastremska, and Muchova all out with Sabalenka as a maybe right now. This was a great field, but that's a lot of upsets.

    She shouldn't be losing 6-2 6-1 to anyone in the world. Something is up.

    She was on a different continent 24 hours ago. Give her a break!

    Wertheim consistently says that OCC makes the women's tour look weak. Mostly, I think it shows that a handful of coaches are assholes.

    We have the peak tennis result of the decade so far. Belinda Bencic won the first 19 points of the match against Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova to lead 4-0 40-0, 5 points from a golden set.

    The final score: 1-6 6-1 6-1 to Pavlyuchenkova.
    Well that's bizarre.
