Re: Tianjin R2 Yafan Wang def. (4) Garcia 6-4 6-2

Defending champ Garcia gets dumped out in the second round by YF Wang. Has Wang finally regained her form? She seemed promising in Acapulco and Miami but hasn't done anything of note since. She did play a close match against Elina in Beijing, so maybe she's reached a decent level again.

Garcia in Flopcia mode again. Looking at the stats, she got a good % of FS in, but that didn't really help her. Wang got a lot of BP opportunities and returned well. Not sure what Garcia has to do to get back to her 2017 level again.

Ash Barty!!

A new coach looks needed. Papa did all he could.

Seems like Yafan is back in form. I thought she has top 20 talent, at least

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

One doesn't have to be in great form to beat this version of a sorry looking Garcia.

2019 a year to forget for quite a few of the bigger names.

Re: Tianjin R2 Yafan Wang def. (4) Garcia 6-4 6-2

Yafan is a very good player when on, and has the kind of 'does everything well but doesn't have one big noticeable strength' game that Garcia often struggles against.

But still a player she should be beating. With this loss she falls out of the slam seeding zone. She's still relatively young, but I fear that she'll finally get rid of her father when it's already too late. It's not like Florian and her can't do a great job together anyway (eg Nottingham run). If she plays well at Fed Cup under Benneteau again, then it's not like the signs aren't there and clear as day for her.

Congrats to Wang #1 and hopefully Caro can find a new coach some form next season.

Garcia back where she belongs.
I cant believe she was 4 in the world.
Yafan is a great worker and maybe she can get the title here.

Yafan

Never really paid attention to her, but what a charming girl Very decent ground game, serve needs improvement though.

That banana shot early in the second set deserves a capture.

Will try to follow her more from now on. Does she have any nickname btw, like the rest of the golden flowers or whatever you call them here?

The match was fairly close in the first set but then Wang pulled away in the second.

Re: Tianjin R2 Yafan Wang def. (4) Garcia 6-4 6-2

Yafan kind of peaked in the second set. Some pretty fantastic winners, great on offence and defence.

Nothing between them until 4-4 in the first set, even Garcia was playing pretty well, but it was Yafan who stepped up with that great net approach and then Garcia immediately collapsed.

Surely we are finally at the end of people pretending those 2 weeks of Garcia's career were anything other than anomaly. She is not an elite player, this is her norm.

Oops! I forgot about her even though she's in the draw too. Thanks for the correction.
