Krej literally destroyed all players she met in this tournament.
How? Jelena has a Miami Final, Doha ( or Dubai) Final, Charleston Final, Wimbledon SF plus her GS and two other titles. And a higher CH rank, totally confused...?Krejcikova has now 3 titles, one another final.
And people were saying she was a fluke.
She is already better than Ostapenko for exemple.
To be fair, that’s how reigning GS champs should handle 250 level events against opponents ranked 78, 137 and 63......standards have fallen. That aside, the sooner Barbora gets into the Top 10, the better.She lost just 8 games in the last 6 sets she played. You don't see that very often.
But now she is the only topplayer who played matches on hardcourt before the olympics. So maybe it was a smart move.She is really good and will top 10 very soon. But I don't think a WTA 250 is really matters. These tournament for player to under top 20 and she is a different class recently. I don't think she would have play if the tournament is not in Prague. It is a good thing that she could play home.
For Queen fans, there's an interesting Czech link involved. Not only has this band been always very popular here, but Freddie Mercury's personal assistant/secretary, Mr. Freestone, has been actually living in Czechia for twenty years and last year even got the citizenship. He had been with FM on a daily&night basis in the last 10-15 years of the British star's life and recently served as the main consultant for the US movie Bohemian Rhapsody.Good to see Queen blaring away during the photographs after the match, " We are the champions" was very fitting.
