RUTHLESS.

EVERYTHING was clicking, the forehand was working, the backhand was great, the serve was fantastic, she basically got to every single shot Kalinina tried to hit as a winner.

If she plays like that against Naomi, we have a great match on our hands.

Welp. The most interesting part of this match was Gauff's skirt (it's so Venus lol). She was moving so well and serving excellently though, such a confident performance. Sets up a star-studded match against Osaka next, which is good for the WTA.

I was hoping for more of a battle here - Kalinina has lost so much form since the start of the year. She's beaten Sakkari, Keys x2, Raducanu, Muguruza, Stephens, Rybakina, Cornet, taken a set off of Iga during her streak... I hope the injury she had a few weeks ago hasn't completely derailed her. Looked very underpowered today.

29 winners from Coco in a 1 & 0 match??! Yowza! I’m so excited for a Coco/Naomi clash! I hope the level is remotely as good as today from both

is Gauff the real #2?
I think Jabeur has actually cemented herself as the also-ran to Swiatek (although I was trashing her during the French Open lmao).

Now it's REAL #3.

That was a stupid level from Gauff. I am very interested to see what we get from her tomorrow. It’s really hard for a young player like her after that type of performance to face someone as good as Naomi and not think in the back of your mind I shot my wad and I’m probably not going to be able to play this well again today. If she keeps it competitive and loses I still think it’s an improvement over their meeting in I think Cincinnati last year
