Re: SF: (3) Hsieh/Strycova d. (1) Babos/Mladenovic 76(5) 64
Excellent performance today from Strycova and Hsieh. Barb is probably player of the championships! How come the over 30s are having such success? Strycova in particular moved so well and got to everything. As Wimbledon 2019 has shown us, power doesn’t always win (unless your name is Serena) and Mladenovic and Babos hit pretty cleanly today but couldn’t put the ball away from the angry birds! Along with Ostapenko in the mixed, I had a nice afternoon of tennis watching (THEN turned over to Fedal!)
Ostapenko, Strycova, Hsieh - three of the most ... singular players on the WTA!
Steffi Graf Justine Henin
Elena Dementieva Angelique Kerber Jelena Ostapenko
Simona Halep Monica Niculescu Kiki Bertens Barbora Strycova Hsieh Su-Wei
