Wow--lots of rain delays today. Short ones. Even supposedly a tornado warning for a waterspout, though I never saw anything remotely like that. But that's something you definitely don't get at every tournament, lol.

Fun day. Several matches seen, lots of pics and vids taken.

Saw bits, pieces and parts of Boev-Bensimon, Osaka-Ianchuk (6-3 3-6 6-4), Sotnikova-Kermet (6-4 6-3), Muhammed-Molnar (6-2 6-0), Chrico-Albanese (Louisa won 6-1 by retirement), Bencic-Pluskota and Tomova-Marand (Tomova won 6-3 6-1). Overheard some interesting convo during rain delays when Sotnikova and later, Chirico sat down next to me. Well, maybe not "interesting", just stuff you wouldn't normally get to hear about/from a professional tennis player.

The player I was most impressed with what I saw today was Naomi Osaka. She actually has the (first) serve and groundstrokes to compete with most top fifty-ish players. She was about the only one I saw today who could actually dictate points and hit a significant number of winners. I think she's worth keeping an eye on. Asia Muhammed had a great scoreline, but it was more of a struggle than the score indicated. I've seen her play a few times in ITFs and always come away impressed, only to see her fall flat in the results sheet the next round. Not sure what to make of her--obviously she has the weapons, but the consistency is lacking.

Chirico's got a nice game, too, but it's hard to tell just how good she was with Albanese being sick today.

Will try to get pics/vids up when I can. Going to try to go all week over lunch, but damn the luck, we got a protest in late last week, so I have to work tomorrow, when I was planning on going all day. Will still try to sneak over for a couple hours at lunch though.

Those first two pics, by the way, are of the livestream commentary crew. Thought you'd be interested since it's a couple of kids doing the commentary. Thought they did a pretty good job last year. Maybe someday ESPN will dump P-Mac, Cliffy and Brad and hire these two!

I was asked about Tomova by someone else, so I'll post my reply here:

Tomova looked OK today. I thought she struggled a bit early on, in the first set, especially, making some errors mostly off the forehand side. The match was on the "third" court, where the only viewing area was from behind one baseline, so it's a little hard to tell much from that angle, but my impression is that while she has a decent game from a consistency standpoint--nice to watch, fluid, etc., I think she lacks the power that a top 100 player needs and has to have. Doesn't have the "big shot". Which kind of sucks, because she's rather cute.

She did seem to be struggling a little with the conditions today, though--which is odd because she plays a ton of US tournaments. But she looked like she was sweating alot, and I was freezing because it was so windy and overcast.

And as always, her Dad was seated next to the court, shouting encouragements.
