Such a Topsy-turvy match!

It was just too familiar a pattern with Kris, seems so lost out there, but glad she pulled it out somehow. It wasn't a terrible match, serve was working well and all credit to Su-Wei, she stayed focused and kept going for her shots. Kris needs to get out of this slump!

Have to admit the exact same thought crossed my mind. But in fairness, I do prefer Kristina's game to Karolina's. I like Kristina's volleying skills and and she does hit some quite funky underspin shots on occasion too. I think she improvises better than her sister too. And of course against a player with the skill and imagination of Su-Wei, one has to improvise a lot and be ready for everything. To Kristina's credit she did pass the test.

That said, yeah, I'm little bummed.

particularly bummed for Zhang Shuai who could really have used the ranking pts. She had to play the Chinese National Games and so missed practically the entire US hardcourt swing, and then ran into Pliskova in R3 of USO where she had a MP as well. And now meets her in R2 at Wuhan. Not fair really. Hopefully Beijing is a bit nicer draw-wise, maybe she can meet Mladenovic.

....or Sammy.

....or Monica

Although actually I'm hoping Monica can draw Mladenovic or Sammy too. Maybe Shuai can draw one of them and Monica the other.
