54m for Swiatek to defeat Kudermetova. What has happened to Kudermetova who showed a lot of promise earlier this year? All Iga had to do was put the ball in play.

When Kudermetova figured out they were not playing frisbee the match was over already.

Kudermetova never recovered from her total choke against Siniakova at the FO. And her game is too limited and inconsistent to have success in the long way.

It was a tennis masterclass from Iga out there. Entertaining.

Maybe getting to the 3rd round will buy Kudermetova a few more tennis lessons.

Nope.

Iga did a lot more than just 'putting the ball in play' - this maybe could apply to how Tomljanovic beat Muguruza yesterday, she was consistently forcing her opponent to move and if she would hit through the middle it was often a tough shot to handle as it would bounce high and fast outside of preferred striking zone. Also her serves were tough and precise.

Ons is still out there lurking for her pigeon...

I'm salivating at the thought of a Kontaveit-Swiatek final if their past matches are any indicator..
H2H is 2-1 for Ons with one 3-set win.

Thought this match would be a bit more challenging at least, but she played as well as she could while Kudermetova was as awful as she could鈥檝e been. Hope she keeps it up vs. Ostapenko or Putintseva.

Igatha in her RG 2020 form. The molasses-slow courts here can only help her. Hope she wins the title.

Too solid form from Iga, though the scoreline is just as much about Kudermetova's massive stagnation/regression after a very strong start of the season - she's done in the past 52 weeks enough to truly justify her current ranking, but if based on the past few months she just seems incredibly overranked since she's for sure not playing at a top 50 level right now.

To soon to say this. It was only Martic and Kudermetova. Even Raducanu would have beaten them easily. There is still many players (Krejcikova, Jabeur, Azarenka) who can be a challenge for her.
