Madison Keys must be pissed! She has to face Sloane again??

Sloane seems quite confident when facing Madison and appears to relish these matches when they face each other.

She was a LL. It just happened the player that withdrew was going to meet Madison.

I read that but Madison will still be pissed no matter how it came about. I just know that she doesn't enjoy playing Sloane, while Sloane enjoys playing Madison.

Novak losing it. Should've put out the robot but instead collapse. Yelling at umpire for not stopping play.

Madison was pissed enough to win that one. She got tired of losing.

I saw bits of it. Now she gets the French open champion in the next round. Madison needs to get her [!@#$%^&*] together and stop wasting her talent.

I couldn’t watch, but Diego (unless he was injured) is a good win for FAA.

FAA sucks on clay. Diego didn't play well at all that's why FAA won. 

 

Diego loses 2nd round after making finals last year. Looks like he'll drop out of the top 10 after Paris. He's got semis points to defend.

Well, isn't that why Felix got Uncle Toni? At 21, I'm not ready to make pronouncements on a player's career, especially when players today aren't even winning majors until their mid-late 20s and even 30s.

Novak is losing his marbles.

 

He's going to play his tournament 2.0 next week.

 

His screaming during the match was annoying and cringeworthy creepy.

Pera will have to show me something real before I ever show any enthusiasm for her ever again. I learned that at least two years ago. She always looks promising... until she doesn't. She won't fool me again.

 

Medvedev is gangly and awkward but he can move around the court without you even realizing it. It seems like, if he truly wanted to, if he committed to it, he could have decent results on clay but not as long as his mentality stays the way it does. 

 

Osaka...hm. She doesn't seem to like grass much either (which is a first for a Japanese woman) but now that she is fitter and more accomplished than she was a few years ago, she has more upside on grass. As for clay, if Lindsay Davenport can get to the second week of RG, Osaka can make QFs, but it would be dependent on her draw and if she could muster enough confidence in any given match. That all goes out the window if she faces a player who thrives on clay.

 

Podorolska clearly thrives on clay. Meeting her so early in a draw was not great for Serena.
