Nice win vs Domi, and they lost in doubles. Not a great major, but okay

Nobody* ruined it for me, I just lose interest once there are no interesting players left. Simple as that. Happens to me before the end of nearly every tournament played, if I'm honest.

We'll see.
Agree 100% about Kate, except to note that IMHO it was losing to Arch-Nemesis here last year that shattered her confidence and started her form slump.
Given that that's just happened again, in straight sets, I hope she's not too down over that. After all Arch-Nemesis is now a Top 10 player.

Final score, 16 46

Thought she would take the second set, when she was 4-1 up, but she didn't win another game

Oh well, still got to the second week, yet again!

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.

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

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
