Marta served for set against Flipkens, had 3 straight set points at 4-3 40*-15 and lost it

I was at the match covering it for the Empire. It was approaching 100 degrees in air temperature. Marta only played doubles with Venus. She seemed to enjoy herself. The Empire beat the Kastles badly. As you can tell by my posting here, I did not suffer heat stroke. I have many pictures of Marta which will be put up at a later date.

I could have interviewed Marta if I wanted to, but I had to wait for Venus (which unfortunately never happened). Next year, I will talk to her.

Marta has a certain resemblance to Djokovic. When you look at Djokovic's photo when he was around 19-21 before gluten free. They could pass as siblings.

Marta was involved only in doubles today and she was GOATing, winning the set 5-1

I watched the match (Tiafoe and Opelka are playing the last set as I type this) and Marta got embarrassed by Dart 5-1. Negative body language, talking to herself, wild errors. She got a stern talking-to in a GEICO timeout by Coach MacPherson.

Marta was in tears after the set and Coach MacPherson went over to console her. Shelby gave her some encouragement before they went for women's doubles. She played much better, was laughing and smiling (there was a scoreboard faux pas. They use a manual scoreboard), but they blew a 4-1 lead and lost the set to Dart and Muhammad 5-4 (which is a tiebreaker score in WTT).

It should be noted that Washington is playing all home matches on a roof. An actual roof.

Women’s singles also promises to be an exciting highlight. New Kastle and 16-year-old Ukrainian phenom Marta Kostyuk will take on 22-year-old Rollers rookie Harriet Dart of England in a clash of rising WTA stars.

I think Marta has very high expectations of herself but while she's had a big taste of success now she has to put the hard work in to get the rewards. I fully believe it will come in time. She needs to perhaps learn some patience.

Marta lost in Q1 at Wimbledon

(And 15 yo Gauff, 17 yo McNally and 18 yo Juvan qualified.)

For the 16-year-old Ukrainian Marta Kostyuk, the playing venue is a mental challenge in itself. “It feels like we are outsiders,” she says. “I understand to some point the court has to be completely new. But it’s kind of upsetting. You feel you are too far from the people in the main draw. There are players that are proud [to be here], but I’m not like that. I’m like: ‘Why am I playing so bad that I’m in qualies?’”
Seems like she has mental/attitude or whatever you want to call it problems

Going down from Aus Open MD to Grand Slam Quali seems to be hard for Marta ...
Marta was a hyped promising future star after Aus Open 2018. And now she must play ITFs and Grand Slam Quali. While most of the other players in Grand Slam Quali are typical ITF players with no big career or potential ...
