Federal vs Nadal is what gets people (non-hardcores) to watch - like me. Too bad the match will start at 4am my time.   Hope the final will the Joker vs one of these guys.   

 

 

Don’t care about who’s left on the women’s side.

Simona and Madison both had worked their way back into their matches, only to collapse. Defending champ out.

 

Anisimova/Barty and Konta/Vondrousova semis. I’m sure the Brits are hyping the hell out of Jo, and the Anisimova push will be in overdrive here.

Since the very beginning of the tournament I suspected that neither Sloane nor Simona would get back to the finals this year.  Just yesterday I was musing on the possibility of having two brand new finalists and lookie here!

 

Madison doesn't surprise me--she reminds me of Lindsay Davenport at RG, can get to the 2nd week, but don't truly expect her to make it to the finals. I think Davenport mostly made it to the Round of 16 and QFs and to the SFs once or twice at RG.

The top 4 seeds are into the men’s semis while the women’s semifinalists are a random melange.

 

Peak ATP vs WTA.

Maybe that's why they put the women's semis away from center court. Only the men's semis are scheduled on center.

 

Rain may have something to do with it too. Suppose to be more rain tomorrow and possible wash out again.

Or in other words: men's tennis is boring and predictable, while women's tennis is exciting and unpredictable.   ;)
