Virtual double bagel. Winning 12 games in a row. Sabalenka back to constructing the points and not just brainless ball bashing.

Re: Wuhan R2 Defending Champion Sabalenka DESTROY Danielle Collins 6-1 6-0

That was a pretty scary performance.

Democratic Republic of Collins seemed a little clueless today but even her better shots would come back faster, harder, and at a sharper angle. Evidently Sabalenka likes the conditions here and seems to be playing a bit freer again after the Dmitry Drama. Even her serve - which has let her down a lot this year - was imperious.

She has played four sets and only dropped four games combined. Bertens or Pera next.

Re: Wuhan R2 Defending Champion Sabalenka DESTROY Danielle Collins 6-1 6-0

that was one of the best performances i think i have seen from aryna. in the zone & goating for 51 minutes.

her power was awesome and she barely missed a shot.
she looks really happy and content on court, maybe because tursunov is back by her side.

a real chance to defend this week if she can continue like this.

also, kevin( hello tennis fan) skinner must be paid by the word, because he seemed more annoying then usual tonight.

What a shattering performance that was from Sabalenka. Collins was completely clueless in the second set. What can you possibly do when someone goes and wins 12 games in row eh!!

He doesn’t stop talking. Asking unnecessary questions and repeating things over and over. He would make a good trivia host though.

She did an interview and said that she had realizations when she went to zhengzhou alone that she put too much pressure on herself and she was avoiding a loss than going for the win. She said she blamed Tursunov for her loss of form but realized that when she was alone, it was all the same. She also hired a psychologist. She looks more relaxed here and has a good draw to at least make the semis.

Ouch. Never seen DRC go down so quietly.

Hopefully, Sabalenka can defend a good chunk of the points here.

Something is wrong. I think Collins didn't have enough sleep last night. There is no way she loses to Sabalenka with a score like that. A tight score? yes.. but not this kind of beatdown. Let's investigate. Where is Ken Star?

Slump is over? Is the beast back?

Well she herself seems to believe so. If this is true then watch out WTA.
