What a choke, watching a choke on a livescore is always interesting, always makes me wanna actually see it in person.

Apparently Johanna received a lot of treatment on her thigh. Hope this is nothing major.

Complete reversal of her first round match, she was leading 5-2 then lost 5 games in a row. But nonetheless it has been a great tournament for her!

Sad to hear she got injured, that explains a lot then

Sorry not buying this thigh "injury" as a reason for such an epic choke.

Tough loss to serve for the match and be that close so many times but unable to get over the finish line.

Journos on twitter being particularly disparaging about Olga's grunting.

She was leading 5-2 in the third. I don't think it was an injury. Maybe some cramping earlier, but that was a choke.

Re: US Open Rnd 2: Govortsova d Konta 2-6 6-2 7-5

How come that everybody here is so sure that it was a choke by Konta? Did anybody of you actually see the match? After all, Govortsova is certainly the better player than Konta, so it´s possible that she turned it around on her own, thanks to her improved and more focused play ...

Only 2 of the Top 16 seeds out, hardly a mess by WTA standards. The 16-32 bracket is usually irrelevant anyway.
