Moscow R2 : Kiki Mladenovic def A.Sevastova (6) 7-5 3-6 6-3

Kiki improving slowly but surely under Bajin coaching

very intense and competitive match here vs a very tricky player

making a battle of smart and "foxy" tennis.

Bertens is next.

i cannot stand sevastova's on court demeanour, hate watching her. ( was watching luxembourg)

so i'm always pleased when she loses, and there are few players who i feel about like her. sorry to her fans.

I had much difficulty watching her, she was complaining to the chair umpire about Kiki "complaining for nothing" and guess what she does at EVERY CHANGE OVER? She COMPLAINS!

and when she's laughing at her opponent on ROS or after losing a point. At the end Kiki is too kind imo shaking her hand and kind of "comfort" her...

Sevastsova I’m glad she didn’t get into the top ten. She was rolling her eyes at Ons Jabeur’s amazing shots. Such a jealous biz-nacho

100% agree. She seems nice enough off court, but her on-court demeanor is really unappealing. It reminds me of Andy Murray in a way, looks like she would rather be anywhere than on the tennis court.

Well done Kiki . She has not had a dramatic rise since hiring Bajin like some people (and I'm sure he) probably expected, yet slowly but surely she is improving and getting significantly better results than before. Has a great chance against Bertens next round.

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies: Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Re: Moscow R2 : Kiki Mladenovic def A.Sevastova (6) 7-5 3-6 6-3

Great, enthusiastic crowd on this smaller court! And a well contested match (only 4 more points won overall by the winner).

Mladenovic actually playing some of her best tennis of the year. A better serving day and solid volleys. Sevastova not so much, she was uncharacteristically bad at the net and leaking errors off sitters.

However she had that great patch down a set and a break, where she suddenly went on a drop shot kill spree. Must have won at least 8 points with it in that stretch. Also dictating with heavier forehands (often painting the baseline), breaking down the Mladenovic backhand and dragging her all over the court.

Of course, despite having success with those tactics she completely abandoned them in the final set.

Love Murray and Sevastova and the way they both serve dour realness! I like to see it better than the faux-bro chest-patting or plasticky smiles.

It's been such a bad year for Nastja apart from struggling to her home title though.

i have the same problem. her actual tennis is nice to watch, but her mostly pissy mood is such a turn-off.

Couldn't agree more. Her tennis can be really nice to watch but her face on the court is not

Mladenovic really improving under Bajin, could be dangerous again next year.

This can only mean she will be a finalist at the USO for the former top 10er, after beating the former USO semifinalist and almost top 10.

And just like that, Mladenovic will be the highest ranked French player at the end of this season. Who would have thought a couple of months ago!

Well done to her though, she seems on her way up again (slowely).
