For Watson, she hangs in there, running like someone we know very well

Also, Watson knows how to treat breakpoint possibilities. 5/5 so far.

True ... Sharapova more or less did this to herself judging by the UE count, but Watson seems to have heart. Great show! - and congrats to Sharpie

So why have they slowed the US Open courts down?

I knew Sharapova would win and that she'd win if it went to a third set.

However, it was the way she won which makes me dislike her more than any other player. It was worse than normal the loud aggressive intimidatory screaming and come ons on opponents errors. Even worse than normal. I really do hope she loses to whoever she plays against when she's like that.

Watching McHale/Wozniak. Sigh, I still can not credit that even a slumping Caroline lost to Christina. McHale took the first set but Aleksandra just went up a break to 4-3 in the second. Caroline and Aleksandra have similar enough last names that it will almost feel like further revenge if Wozniak can win the match, that will make me smile.

On BBC Radio 5 news - they just gave the results of the Brits Laura and Heather. Then they said that earlier Kvitova had gone out. But then they said world #1 Caroline Wozniacki was currently a set down against Christine McHale .

Can you credit it. This is the BBC saying this .

Well - better luck to Aleks next time. Mchale seems to be in a serious groove ...

Would have sided with Caro on this particular occasion,anyway---but now I don't have to feel guilty for that ultra-rare instance of cheering against Petra...cuz her crappy play eliminated the possibility of that conflict

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Big day for the younger generation; 16 year old Madison Keys and 17 year old Laura Robson move to the 2nd round.

Re: On the Concept of Irony w/ Continual Reference to Caro:Off-topic 4 the POPULAR #1

another Slam Chump gave a pathetic performance. After Kvitova, Li Na is now out too. All this talk from 'experts' how it will be so hard for Caroline with the pressure of being a slamless #1 and boo hoo blah blah ..

well from where I am sitting, it looks like the pressure weighs more on the slam chumps

PS Caro down to 11-1 .. still running that one
