Kerber at Cincinnati last year.

Come on guys, let's not be so serious. If she loses, she loses.
I'm way less nervous about this compared to how tightly wound I was during the less than 24 hours between Serena losing at AO and Semi-Poova's match. Swing freely, Mash, but not too freely cuz that could also be trouble.
Scream as loud as possible even if you hold serve at 5-0 down.
I know I try not to be delusional, but even at that OG match, I was hoping she would turn it around after she went two breaks down in the second set (don't remember the exact score cuz i don't care about it honestly anymore). I'm honestly excited to see what she brings tomorrow.
Yeah, I've actually had minimal expectations all week. I was actually kinda half-expecting her to lose to both Zakopalova and Stosur, so I was unsettlingly relaxed watching both matches
I should try this "no expectations" / "nothing to lose" approach when watching Maria more often.
