Good Luck Caro in 2019!
They can't finish that game...
That's not true. This time, lots of players withdrew either because of injury due to coming from off-season and warming up and the tight schedule OR because they wanted to be as fresh as possible for the AUS Open which is much more important than a 250/500. So the quality of the 250/500 this week were not as high as they would be in May or August.Whether the tournamet is in January, May, August or October, they all carry the same points.
The professional players will try to win them in any month they can.
A lot of people did not expect to lose to Keys in Australia so far. I highly doubt Svitolina and Samsonova expected their loss to Keys in their games. Kenin probably is the first one to really feel worried about losing, especially since there is so much for her at stake as the AUS Open champ from just 2 years ago.Coco was probably disappointed - like most people around the world who follow tennis- she wasn't expecting to be defeated tonight.
