Just in case there was Doubt that Women's tennis had Sunk into the Abyss...
First of all, a great win from Lindsay. In numbers, she would not quite rest on the highest perch of all-time greats, but in terms of ability she most certainly does, and always did. So let's take nothing away from her.
But that cannot hide that this result was. not. meant. to. happen. The world number 3 is beaten by a player who has given birth and been away a year, in her first tournament back.
Any more evidence needed for the fools who REALLY think that the standard of women's tennis has shot up? Frankly, there's more gaps at the top of the game than there ever has been. What a sorry, sorry embarrassment for the women's game, and what an indicator of the mess women's tennis is in.
