  • Daniil Medvedev slammed his racquet to the court and stared at his player box, as if to say: this can’t actually be happening, can it? You could forgive Medvedev for asking, and for panicking. A few minutes earlier, the 23-year-old Russian had been cruising to a final-round victory over David Goffin at the Western & Southern Open. This wasn’t going to be just any victory, either; it would be his first Masters 1000 title, one that would vault him into the Top 5, cap a sensational month-long run, and make him a strong dark horse pick for the US Open.

  • How much can a single shot mean to a player’s season? We may find out when Madison Keys travels to New York next week and tries to win her first Grand Slam title, at the US Open. The shot I’m thinking of came at the end of her opening-round win over Garbine Muguruza in Cincinnati. Keys was coming off a nightmarish defeat in her last event, in Toronto, where she squandered triple match point against Donna Vekic and lost in a third-set tiebreaker. On top of that, Keys was now facing an opponent, in Muguruza, who had come back to beat

  • Final thoughts on Cincinnati
  • Several unexpected things happened this year at the Western and Southern Open, but then--it's the WTA, and it's generally best to expect the unexpected. We weren't expecting Naomi Osaka to retire, though she was wise to do so (Osaka said that she has a high pain tolerance and sometimes plays on when it would be best for her to stop). We also weren't expecting the retirement of Belinda Bencic, which occurred in the first round.Ever the optimist when it comes to the Spaniard, I didn't think 2017 champion Garbine Muguruza would go out in the first round, but given that

The 34-year-old Russian has been on tour since the turn of the century, and she has pretty much seen and done it all. She’s won two major titles, and been ranked as high as No. 2 in the world. She’s been around long enough to have played doubles with Martina Navratilova, played Justine Henin in Grand Slam finals, and traveled up and down the rankings more times than she can remember.
