Serena 5-1 down in the first set.
Not expended much energy then.
Still probably win.
Lost 6-2 in the first. Only 38% of first serves in-play, awful.
Good.
Women's game doesn't need Williams coming back and cleaning up again.
It is one of the only things that makes it worth watching.

I'm not a fan.
Preferred hingis and the Belgians style.

Umpire gives a game penalty against Serena, after she acts like a cunt.

Good to see.

Was a tad harsh, but her reaction was pathetic.

Great news that Naomi Osaka won. Haven't seen the match, but reading all the reaction about how out of character this was from Serena, what a load of shit. Has always been a sore loser, see 2009 and 2011 US opens for example.

See Williams showed her true colours again last night.
Delighted she lost.

Her coach admitted he was coaching anyway.
Silly cow.

Pick a score for the real match later. I'm going for a 7-6 4-6 4-6. 6-4 6-3 to Del Porto. Knowing full well it may be a 3-set romp for Djokovic.

Djokovic 6-4 4-6 6-3 6-2.

I am confident this will be more accurate than your Darts prediction.

Being an indoor match will help del Potro?

Hope so.

Like the both of these, but would love to see Del Potro win another slam.

Going to be a good match. Del Porto doesn't strike me as the sort to fear anyone.

Removes the elements, makes it easier to hit lines which is what del Potro needs to do.

Should certainly shorten points that will also help.
