Rome SF: Jo Klayta def. Clayclay(?) Bertens 5-7, 7-5, 6-2

Jo got stronger and more aggressive little by little as the match progressed, whereas Kiki went in the opposite direction, great job, Joko!



Kiki Hard to see her as a favorite for RG after this, though

Re: Rome SF Konta def. Bertens 5-7 7-5 6-2

This half was loaded with Serena, Halep, Stephens, Muguruza, Osaka, Bertens, Svitolina, and clay expert Konta comes thru

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Rome SF: Jo Klayta def. Clayclay(?) Bertens 5-7, 7-5, 6-2

Konta reaching 2 finals on clay this season is crazy but to her credit, she played (mostly) really good to get there



still, I hope she'll lose both to Sakkari

Conchita MARTINEZ-Mary PIERCE-Lindsay DAVENPORT-Martina HINGIS-Serena WILLIAMS- and new legend Monica PUIG
Kata Srebotnik - Anabel Medina-Garrigues - Arantxa Parra-Santonja
Garbiñe Muguruza- Caroline Garcia- Polona Hercog- Astra Sharma - ...

Insane intensity and mentality from Konta who plays - out of nowhere - her best tennis again (on her worst surface).
Maybe she plays extra freely and fine attacking tennis because she has not the same expectations to herself (as on grass, hard courts).

Bertens is still the favourite (gamewise) for the French Open. She seems to focus on it (doesn't even play Nürnberg).

What a week for jo! That’s insane

Bertens hitting a line judge with her racket! But she did look spent at the end!

I can understand Konlayta , Clayta is not here even close her name Who named her , don't name anything from now on.
Konta fought really hard, mentality has gone up tenfold after Fedcup. She need to keep it up from now on. Final is winnable.

Bertens she needs rest and this loss might put less pressure on her in RG. Shouldn't be upset with this result.
