Today, last year female champion got knocked out, the women's league is very unstable, anyone in the top twenty can win.

My daughter is in London for the week to attend Wimbledon, she went to the matches yesterday but she just started a Doctoral program, so she has to skip the matches today to catch-up on some assignments and then be free for the rest of her stay.

That withdrawal is massive!

Other winners yesterday included Alcaraz, Tiafoe and Paolini.

Coco’s struggling big time

Navarro takes the 1st set

Coco’s mentality looks suspect….


That’s the difference with prime Serena…she was tough like nails…

Looks like the Brad Gilbert partnership is coming to an end….

Navarro beat both Naomi and Coco.
She was a top class college player with a good game.
But yes Coco had a bad night.
