Margot Says:

And out goes Venus to Quiang Wang.

Giles Says:

And out goes Konta. Good riddance.

Daniel Says:

Zverev is on fire. Looks like this Slam could be his breakthrough, at least QF or maybe beyond.

Margot Says:

Pretty Boy looks mighty fine :)

Margot Says:

Eeuck! ITV4 showing Kozlova’s humungous blister up close and far too personal. She’s just taken the first set. And Haase serving for first set against Goffin. And Karlovic out too.

Tennis fan Says:

We’ll have a new French open womens champion…….so expected.

RZ Says:

Dammit, I have Goffin going to the semis but he seems intent on losing in round 1.

j-kath Says:

Gosh – Goffin and Haase – a real tussle….

Re. Sasha – it was no contest. Margot did you hear those slimy commentators acting so coyishly re. Lendl as potential coach for Sasha – thank goodness I hadn’t dined, I would have thrown up.

Margot Says:

Yes I did Kath. It was truly icky. Hope Sascha has more sense.

Margot Says:

Think we all do RZ but not too worry am expecting Haase to have a big choke soon.

RZ Says:

And choke he did. Good call, Margot
