Zhengzhou R2: Mladenovic def. (8) Garcia 75 62

Well done Kiki! Not on her best surface but she managed to win! 2nd time against her this year Caro's on a slump this summer
Next for Kiki is Svitolina or Putintseva, allez!

Haven't seen the match. Anyone ?
Fun fact : Kiki and Svitolina have met only once 8 years ago with Kiki winning in easy straight sets
In case it's Putinteva h2h is 3-1 in favour of Kiki again

Re: Zhengzhou R2: Mladenovic def. (8) Garcia 75 62

good tactical and solid match from Kiki, the commentator is right she was the manager there and she made some good work

She's really appreciated in China and she gives back too, very nice Kiki

Svitolina or Putintseva tough match to come for sure

Allez!

Re: Zhengzhou R2: Mladenovic def. (8) Garcia 75 62

Getting really hard to be a Caro fan… “LOL” indeed.

Mladonna was a lot better tonight than she usually is, so kudos to her. Garcia did target the backhand (smartly) but it was holding up really well today too. She kind of lives for these grudge matches though (Caro, Sharapova, Osaka).

The difference in their mentalities was very apparent. Caro has a much better set of “tools” but she was a nervous wreck, visibly tense and angry the whole match. On the other hand Kristina has her shonky technique and a lower ceiling of quality but was almost OVER-confident in this match, and to her benefit.

Weirdly a lot of mishits and strange bounces for a HC match? One ball went right through Garcia and it wasn’t even that fast. Kiki blatantly didn’t hit a regular rally ball near the baseline and (for the confused crowd) then gestured that the ball was in and she should have. Maybe it was hard to see or something…

PS I am soo done at Kiki speaking a full sentence in Mandarin……

Caroline Garcia was truly ghastly. It felt like every 2nd ball off her racket in the 2nd set landed 2 metres long, also a shitload of shanks.

Garcia seems to be stagnated for a while now...I thought Caro would take the next step after seeing the way she ended 2017 season but she hasn't really done anything much of note in big tournaments since then.

This is a big time of year for Bajin, he has a book to sell and needs Kiki to play well

Boo, I wanted a rematch between Svitolina and Garcia. Well, a match between Svitolina and FORZA won't be too bad.

Garcia How did she go from winning the China double to this?!

I have no idea! The Chinese interviewer said "can you please say thank you in Chinese, it's Xièxiè" and she said "Xièxiè...." and then a whole sentence or phrase.

At this point i'm convinced she's in on the joke.
