Osaka R2: Camila Giorgi Def (3)Sloane Stephens 6-0 6-3

Another "I don't give a damn" showing from Stephens. First set was a wash and there was a little more fire in the second but didn't last long.

Obviously Camila tried to make it exciting while serving for the match but broke right back to win it anyway (despite Hawkeye extending the match on MP #2)

Sloane can’t just tank these matches anymore. Her ranking is going to take a major dip if she isn’t careful.

Sloane was horrible, and Giorgi had no time for her and the interview thereafter. She has SF points to defend.

Giorgi blazed through the games in the first set. Solid win for her and I think she was a little shell shocked during the post match interview, LoL!

Sloane just didn't show up, at least not in the first set.

May I say that this is a bad match-up for Stephens?

Check their Sydney 2018 R32 match (Cami won it to 63 60), that was very much the same.

This time in Set 1 Cami played at AM/game level around +2.83 (even though she produced several UEs. ). This means practically unplayable level for the opponents. (In the 2nd set they both became rather bad.)

Re: Osaka R2: Camila Giorgi Def (3)Sloane Stephens 6-0 6-3

camila looked a million dollars and played like a million dollars other than late in the second set.

she was certainly goating other than 11 double faults.

paul hand who was commentating need a thesaurus, as he was running at of superlatives with her ground strokes.

typical camila handshake and a very uncomfortable interview. the interviewer tried his best but got nothing.

is it just because camila is shy, she doesn't speak great english or does she just not like human beings.

still a fan though.
