Logical?
Sometimes--but not so much in sports--the phrase,'all downhill from there',can be a GOOD thing,indicating that someone has climbed a mountain(/overcome an obstacle).Still,you've given us a nice offering.I'm hesitant to agree with DIAH after he and his fellow Canadians shamefully abandoned poor Rebecca Marino in her time of need and persuaded her to retire,yet here are a couple others to add to your collection.

Slim/fat chance
Long/short odds
Dense(or thick)/hollow(or narrow) (with regard to someone's mentality)

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22

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