There will be streaming. It is too early for schedule. Don't worry. I watched Mate Pavić last year when he played in final.

She will be #11 if they're losing the final.
#7 if they win

GS doubles winners get 360 points (unlike ordinary GAs, where they only get 180; same as in singles, where winning means 500 points instead of 250). Ana's weakest performance in the doubles 'best 6' is 20 points, which means this would give her 340 points. 340 means 85 real points. Plus 40 she gained in the singles. This means 610 plus 125 = 735.
If you look at the rankings, this means exactly the 7th place, if you take today's ranking. Barty will disappear from the equation, while Siniakova would surpass Ana. Abanda, Kontaveit, Bencic and Vickery wouldn't surpass Ana. This means #7 is hers, if she wins the doubles title



LE: I beg you pardon, I missed something...I've missed Putintseva, who's losing points here. So Ana is #6 if she wins tomorrow.

Not on court 18
Only Centre and 1 have been streamed since Thursday
This match would be very interesting to watch as all girls are very different players, except for maybe Ana and Eugenie. I hope they win, but I think Belinda will be taken advantage of

You're right--I forgot about the bonus points. My apologies

Re: Ana Konjuh

A win today could IMO easily speed up her transfer to the pro tour. Cause, if she reaches #7 today, and that's after only playing one junior slam, it's not likely that she'll have too much motivation left for this level of competition.

I know she is still very young, but if she is phisically strong compared to other juniors, that might be a big advantage for her among the pros (although she'd probably need a few more years to catch up with the most of them). Anyway, my point is, if she wins today, then finishing this year among 5 best juniors in the world is quite realistic for her. And if she achieves that, what's there left to do? Sure, it'd be nice to win a junior slam in singles or reach #1, but I don't think she'll sacrifice her early chance at an ITF circuit for that.

But that's just me. Her camp might have a completely different plan in mind. Will be keeping my fingers crossed today

In this rate I doubt she'd have much to work to reach #1
With such a limited number of pro tournaments she's allowed to play the next 2 years, I guess it's nothing to be sacrificed

Re: Ana Konjuh

Yesterday I was at Wimbledon and I got to see Ana play in her doubles match. She will be very good. She was what pushed Konjuh/Bencic through to the final. Her and Daria Gavrilova played extremely well, exchanging forehand to forehand rallies at an astonishing pace often. In my opinion, her and Belinda are going to win their first Grand Slam, if they play like they did yesterday. They simply never missed and despite occasionally letting their opponents back into games, they have many weapons that they use nicely, and never seemed to be overwhelmed. I also saw Eugenie play live and she also played excellently, but I think that despite what other posters think, that these two can topple the top seeds. Sadly I didn't get to see Bouchard/Townsend play but unless they too played as confidently and calmly as these two, they will have real trouble in the final.
