I can't believe Pam Shriver's on court interview. Asking her to explain to the crowd why she took a toilet break after the 2nd set, telling her that this was an unpopular result because she beat an American....

Illness or not, Xtina can't push like this and be successful. Needs to hit bigger forehands, play closer to the baseline and come to net more.

Impressed by Bertens' serve and forehand. Never seen her play before, though, so I don't know if this was normal or just a great day for her.

Nice win for Kiki, although that fistpump (kind of) directed at McHale at 30-0 in the last game was a bit urgh

Re: USO R1: Bertens d. Mchale 6-4 4-6 6-3

XTina couldn't figure out WTF she was doing all match long. Very bad performance. First set, Kiki played pretty well but Christina barely hit any winners. Second set, Christina plays more aggressive. Final set, errors everywhere. Christina couldn't decide to hit with topspin or flat, power or moonball, up or back... just very indecisive. Her terrible break point conversion reflects this. Also, Bertens probably hit a dozen or so drop shots or mis-hits that landed short in the court, and McHale put away only 1 of them I think. She is very slow at recognizing a short ball, probably because she plays SO far back.

Not impressed!

As for Bertens, first of all her toilet break was RIGHT IN THE MIDDLE of McHale's service game. She would then be broken. I mean come on! Engzell did a shitty job as the umpire overall. Also I don't know if I've ever heard a player with such a deep, manly scream. Scared the crap out of me every single time. But the girl can serve, at least.

Re: USO R1: Bertens d. Mchale 6-4 4-6 6-3

I think it's perfectly reasonable to ask a player why they ran off court in the middle of a game.

Anyway, Kiki played great, very happy for her.

Kiki Not the best match, but she's improving so much lately. If only she would have played juniors, would have been alot better already. But for finishing school first.

Potty break right in the middle of the opponent's service game? How is this even allowed?

Was there, literally about 80 people there were family or friends of McHale, wearing McHale's Navy hats.
And there was maybe max 250people in there when I left.

Re: USO R1: Bertens d. Mchale 6-4 4-6 6-3

I mean would someone explain to me how you can just up and go take a piss when your opponent is in the middle of serving? Is that not at the very LEAST a freaking time violation? Louise Engzell, you could tell she did not want to be there at all
