Yeah I was think about that too

I guess it should start with Kulichkova since we are only counting one time wonder winner streak.

But that means we have to reduce the original streak from 26 to 25 because I counted Pavlyuchenkova as the first there. I'll do that

Well, we know that from the WTA too

Not every WTA #1 also plays like a #1 (for example Angie Kerber, Karo Pliskova, ...)

Day seems in rather weak form and maybe had a bad day

PS: Also #1 seed Day had a lot of pressure, and Li had nothing to lose

Re: 26 successive junior slams in a row won by different girls (New all-time record!)

I watched Li vs Day yesterday (found a stream)... I know that Day is the junior #1, but Ann Li (USA) looked like the real #1.
from 4-6 2-3, she won 9 of the next 10 games (4-6 6-2 6-1).

Li got decent power (but the strapping on her right shoulder is hopefully not directly related to her style of play; otherwise it may be a short-lived career). Li knew how to find the lines AND mixed up her shots nicely with good execution: I remeber in Set #3 a rally with a flat, hard FH close to the baseline, followed by a slice almost on the baseline, followed by another flat, hard FH close to the baseline (and Day missing on that last one); Li came often to the net and showed good control of the ball there (dropshots, overhead smashes). Overall used the whole court when constructing a point; was not waiting for the error.

The one game that Day won in Set #3, was a perfect service game: a series of very hard and deep serves that were either aces or unreturned serves. But the service did not work in the other service games (saw her getting broken in 5 of the 7 service games that I saw due to inconsistent serving).

Overall, Day had to undergo many of the rallies and returning/defending was too often her only strategy. Maybe she had a bad day, because this was not 100% what I expect from a junior #1.

It was my first observation of Ann Li; gonna store the name in the back of my head and if I find the time (and there is a stream) I'll try to watch her SF.

Kind of shocking SFs. Liu isn't a surprise, though it's weird to see her still in juniors when she made a pro splash two years ago; Waltert has come on strong in the past few months. But Lansere? And who is Li to have beaten Danilovic, Chwalinska and Day like that?
