Birmingham R1: Naomi Broady df Alizé Cornet 76(3) 60

Very pleased for Naomi. Was 0-3 down in the first set.

Plays Kvitova/Smitkova next.

Good to see Naomi playing well again. Her games not exactly in line with the coaching textbook but she makes it work and it's effective.

Birmingham R1: (WC) Broady def. Cornet 7-6 (4) 6-0

Simply put, if you lose to Broady, you may never be able to show your face in public again. Getting bagelled by her, even on your worst surface, is grounds for retirement on the spot.

Well, the fun will end next round. Will be a nice, light hit for Petra.

Cornet being a complete whinging Drama queen in the second set. Completely gave up.

Naomi is still far, far too tentative when she is ahead in the set/points taking to the shitty chip/slice of her BH/FH when her movement is so limited. On Grass she just needs to go for it and hit the winners she is capable of. Her serve was however very solid. I saw her in Manchester 100K last week, a much improved performance today though.

Broady the baker dishing out the bagel! Go on, girl!

Played very well in the second set, trading in lengthy rallies which is kind of unusual for her, even if her opponent wasn't that good.

Cornut trying to get the match suspended for light. At 7pm. In the UK. A couple of days before the summer solstice.

That sort of merde might work when she's playing in France, but not here

In her post-match interview she alluded to this: she watched the Watson/Svitolina match beforehand and noted how long some of the points were and that each long point could have gone either way, so she told herself to stay in the rallies and it paid off.

That was just weird. I think she just wanted the overnight break to disrupt Naomi's rhythm.

Mark my words: inspired by her BFF Ostapenko, Broady is coming for that Wimbledon crown.

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

I'd love to see Masha rip Broady's game to shreds. Better still, Queen Vika. Literally LOL that Naomi's website used to liken her to Sharapova. Lolz.
