Go to first new post RG R3: (26) Konta def. Kuzmova 6-2 6-1

From the bits I saw Konta was pretty good, but also Kuzmova wasn't much of a threat.

Vs Vekic in R4

Clay wins in 2019 (MD only):
Martic - 14*
Konta - 13*
Bertens - 13
Sakkari - 13

Who would have thought Konta would be up there 2 months ago?

Konta is on a roll now and has a chance to keep going in this draw. Vekic next

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Jo was on a mission, but today's match begs the question how did Kuzmova get to the 3rd round?

Kuzmova seems to up a very up and down player. One day she can match a top player then the very next day she can be very bad. OTOH clay probably is not the surface that suits her game.

Did she get a new psychologist? Maybe she is still riding on that Fed Cup high. The British numero uno slaying on clay.

Right, sorry, forgot she was the one that received the Bertens gift.

It’s amazing how Konta turned everything around by saving these MP against Y. Wang in Rabat first round.

Klayta came to play today! Just crunching winners for fun.. Her serve was in fine form and overall she just looked really comfortable and relaxed.

Next up is Vekic, who has challenged Jo well in the past.. I would think though that in this form and on this surface, Jo would actually have the edge.

Well she beat Cornut in the first round, who has seen better days.. Then Bertens retired against her.. Jo has actually been pretty lucky with the draw, but she's taking advantage. She has a great chance to make the QFs now.

Re: Go to first new post RG R3: (26) Konta def. Kuzmova 6-2 6-1

Jo!! First second week ever at RG and her first since Wimbledon 2017 so proud.

I was hoping we'd get the messy Kuzmova today rather than the sharp one we saw in R1 and in the early stages of the Bertens match, and we did. Granted, Jo played a very tactically aware match and exposed Viktoria's movement. Kuzmova didn't serve well which allowed Konta to really attack her second serve often and break many times.

Was worried about the fading light due to being last on again but she got it done in double quick time today A top notch performance from Jo today in all aspects, so dialled in and focused. This is the most professional and calm she's looked since the days where she was a top player. Vekic next in R4, which is a toughie, but by no means impossible. Jo is in the better form but Vekic got a very quality win today and those two have historically had titanic tussles before. Hopefully Jo can keep going, but already it's been a tournament to remember for her

Jo Kuzmova is quickly becoming the most regular customer at the bakery, though. Tough match against Vekic next, great opportunity for both players.

Kuzmova is such a useless player, omg she looks like total amateur.

Also her attitude on court is so annoying.

Good for Jo to bring her pre clay form to RG at last. She looked a lot better today than she did in her previous matches here. Maybe put too much pressure on herself in the early rounds. Whatever happens from here on her clay season has been a massive success!
