Konta was too good today, she was reading Katya's serve easily

Beaten once again by her arch nemesis.

First set was horrible:


But kept plugging away:


A win seemed as far away as the sky:


Just congratulate the arch-nemesis and plan what to do next time we meet:


And with that, and Barbora also losing, the tournament is over. All interest now gone. Couldn't give a flying f*** who wins now.

Urgh. Well, given her head, I hope Kate is going to be more "I made the Final 16 of a major" and not "I got whupped" mode.

Her confidence is still a mess, but really I think she overachieved at the AO and hopefully she'll build on it and not let the last match drag her down.

And she can still do well in doubles.

Now in the QF in doubles and a crazy singles draw: Konta, Serena, Pliskova
But a good tournament so far

Got taken to three in doubles tonight, but she looked pretty fresh.

Playing Pliskie and Golubic the points were pretty short.

First time defeating Dominika

I unfortunately tuned in at 62 40 when she decided to get tight. When she lost that set, I gave up the match.

Glad she won it in the end and defended her points!

Also 0-3 against Johanna, who took her out last year, 8-6 in the third. Maybe Kate can get another upset!

GL to Kate!

Kate usually does well in Melbourne and this was a good week 1
Next is Konta, so it gets even tougher

Happy Ekat is happy:

Kate played her own game, serving well, and getting nice away spin on her groundstrokes,

While Pome is fitter and more determined, Kate had her playing catch-up tennis all match and conquered her own nerves.

I absolutely ache for a time machine to take her back to the White City grass; she and Petra would have been literally unbeatable there, swinging the ball in the air as well as off the court.

Anyway, enjoy this gorgeous creature in full flight:






A massive dark cloud is forming on the horizon though; the arch-nemesis awaits in the next round.

Katya beats Domi 6-2 6-7 [3-7] 6-3. Never in doubt.

Re: Ekaterina Makarova making waves Thread

Dare I be cautiously optimistic that Cutie Katie is finding a touch of singles form again?

I know Errani wasn't at her best, but from what I saw (and I was going back and forth between Kate and Kaja) Kate was playing well regardless of what was going on with Sara.

Draw gets tougher now, so its good she's thru and lets see if the Gold medalists can have a big major

Retirements suck, but Kate

And glad she and Lena were able to see through that three-setter in doubles
