"anybody pay attention to the US Open?"


          

on the women's side Naomi Osaka did her thing in the first round...

So did Coco Gauff and Sloan Stephens so of course they have them facing each other in the 2nd round. The old divide and conquer trick...

Cotdayum Coco is diesel
She definitely has been putting in work, salute
Was worried in that 1st set
Other lady looked like she got gassed...and Coco put it on her
but her forehand looks like an issue
She pushed a lot of forehands out of bounds
Her backhand is lethal

Naomi didn't really need to do too much
She needs to get that first serve in more often and cut down on the errors
The real story was how comfortable she looked in the post game on court interview
She was running around, giving out souvenirs to fans, etc...looked comfortable speaking, etc...

dude is amazing, I kept putting Fed over him but can't any longer and if he completes this Grand Slam which he should there is no disputing he is the GOAT, most likely will get to 25 or more by the time he's done.

agreed--he's goat to me already, but if he wins this one? (against a peaking Zverev *and* Medvedev on the way to 21?) i think that debate is a wrap.

I know Sabalenka is an all-or-nothing kind of players, but still the way she imploded in the final game (and really, throughout the match) was something to see. And Sakkari seemed out of her element from the start, while Raducanu was peppering her with winners as if she'd been doing this for years. Fernandez and her have contrasting styles too, should make for a decent final
