Nice comeback from coco, she was solid at the end and came up with some clutch serves.
Gross fake MTO from potato, bye gurl.
Winnable second round against babos coming up

now she gets Babos next:spit: exactly the type of player that will definitely lose to 15 year old pusher in extremely hostile environment:lol:

not sure how good it is for her career to be winning these matches on big stages and getting tons of hype when her game needs A LOT of work ..:shrug:

MTO should be banned.
When you are in the boxing ring, you don't take MTO. If you can't fight, you are out.
Tennis is an one on one and should be the same way.
That fake MTO Potapova took worked. It cooled down Coco. Hate cheaters.

Gauff was mentally much stronger. When Potapova was serving 45 15-0 and went for the big down the line and missed, that showed the mental difference between them, cant give any points away at 45 in the 3rd
I like a lot of what Potapova did, but when she goes off the rails she is a mess of errors

Impressed with how many fans she has already. Crowd support helped. She even has an ad already. “Call me Coco.”

Nice win for Coco but her Fhand needs work. More Raquet Head Speed please. That Stroke looks a lot like Wozniacki's when she was very young.

Probably the worst match in History. A Pushing Spectacle. Pushers want to outpush each other.

i know ,i think she should be winning matches and grinding at smaller events where theres very little pressure and shes not going to get all this ridiculous attention/hype. getting lucky draws and winning in slams is not it imo .

Well, at least Coco still won. Potapova annoyed me a little throughout the match, but she did give a nice handshake, so maybe her intensity level is just off the charts or else she really didn’t want to lose to a 15 year-old hometown girl.

Potapova was hysterical out there, probably to fight the crowd, but it was excessive, unnecessary, unpleasant, unbearable.

Coco is SO talented. She has an easiness, a perfect mix of cool and power and can add variety. She has a great future and those who don't see it... should do something else than watching tennis! :SNE:

I think Coco has the most annoying team in tennis since Cibulkova's Pome squad. There's like 25 of them in her box and they all stand up and clap every time she wins a point, opponents' errors included.

They are both talented, but it shows how young they are that it was such an essentially boring grind-fest. They are still not confident or experienced enough to wield the ability they have, so they kind of just belt the ball back and forth, classic young 'un battle. Nice moment at the net, Potapova not like her namesake in that way, at least.
