Rome R3 : Kiki Mladenovic d. A.Barty (9) 6-2 6-3

So happy for Kristina! after a tough battle in the morning vs Bencic she manages to beat Barty and score a TOP10 WIN!

she seemed a bit tired at times in the 2nd set, this game to make it 4-2 was CRUCIAL cause Barty was fighting hard

through to QF to face winner of Kvitova/Sakkari

So that's 5 wins in a row for Kiki?

When's the last time she did that?!

Only dropped one set as well.

Maybe people will finally acknowledge that she actually is playing better.

this is the first time in 2019 that Barty has lost to someone ranked lower than her.

I feel ridiculous entertaining the hype machine at such an early point but would LOVE to see Kiki snatch wigs at Roland Garros.

Mladenovic has now strung together 5 wins in this tournament.
This is a marked improvement.

Not too long ago she was struggling to get one win.
She was better than that so it's good to see her finding her range again.

Looks like Bajesus is real.
Repent.

Barty was all kind of awful. Kiki is playing decent but nothing that impressive.

Re: Rome R3 : Kiki Mladenovic d. A.Barty (9) 6-2 6-3

I'm actually not surprised by this win, she is playing top 20 tennis on clay at least which I acknowledge even as a non-fan.

I'm not exactly sure what Bajin brings to the table, but he does have the ability to really enforce and crystallize what the player should do with the serve and it makes a big impact in match situations. Azarenka, Wozniacki, Osaka and now Mladenovic all exhibited this clarity on serve while he is working with them.

even granted ash's game doesn't necessarily translate well to deep clay, but that is a fine win for mlads over an inform opponent. wd.
