On what planet is reaching the 2nd round of Mallorca "reaching the top of the game?"



Two top-50ish players played their first grass match and if it was sloppy that doesn't say much about anything, except it was their first match on grass.

Top of the game as in Babos nearly cracking the top 20 despite such limitations in her game and everyone seems to be tipping Kris Plis for the top 10.

And it wasn't their first match on grass, they both played last week .

Babos nearly cracked the top 20 despite being terrible.

And everyone seems to be tipping Kris Plis for the top 10.

I stand corrected on the grass part.

But "nearly cracking" and "cracking" are too very different things. Babos has been in freefall since peaking and her decline in the rankings--which will accelerate after this result--reflect that.

And Kris has been searching for a way to match her sister's breakthrough for the last two years. People have been wondering why she can't match Kaja's success when she was more successful early on--that's not the same thing as "everyone tipping Kris Plis for the top."

Babos is one of the biggest vultures on tour, (along with Dodin ) so that explains why she would have nearly made Top 20, more so than actually having a Top 20 game.

Victória (2) ~ Aļona (1) ~ Garbiñe (2)

Bacsinszky, Bellis, Dodin, Garcia, Osaka
Stephens, Venus (7), Vondroušová
Love/hate: Vandeweghe, Svitolina

He probably read on google search or trip advisor that Istanbul is less expensive than Singapore.
Cool story bro.
