I saw the first set, and then had to go to work....

A lot of potential, considering that he's a qualifier. Mpetshi Perricard should get an automatic place in the US Open, if he keeps this up.

Other winners yesterday included Rybakina, Ostapenko and Svitolina, but Fritz sent Zverev packing.

Coco looked so off that I concluded she was gonna lose big time and went and
watched a movie. I think she has some issues as she did not look
her usual self.

Paolini was surgical in her match today, good for her, first Italian woman ever in the semi-finals at Wimbledon.

Paolini is one lucky woman. Maddy Keys had her on the ropes @ 5-2 in the third set in the fourth round before Keys unfortunately got injured and couldn't finish the match ....

Vekic outlasted Sun to reach the semis for the first time too...she'll play Paolini for a place in the final.

Another great comeback by Paolini! Always happy, always laughing, never seems stressed. What an attitude!

Kreijcichova also came from a set down to beat Rybakina.

So, we'll have a new women's Wimbledon champion on Saturday.

I think the Czech won the French a year or two ago....

Something like that....

Djokovic beat Musetti in straight sets.

The men's final will be Djokovic vs Alcaraz on Sunday.

Will it be double joy for Spain on Sunday?

The bookies very likely do well with the gamblers on the women's game, there has been no dominant player in the women's game since Serena Williams move on.

Definitely was rooting for the Czech. Her double partner walked away from her a year ago. She held her head high and moved on. She always carried herself with a fine sense of dignity on the circuit and we saw it when she won the French Open a few years ago.
