"So far from the U.S. open. Haven't had a major shock yet, Joel, have we? Apart from podcast go losing. No, she's a dark horse, I think, now. That was a very, very good win. I mean, the handshake, as always, left a little bit frosty. Be desired, yes, I'll speak, I just wanted to get off the court. She was already on her side of the net, I think, before giving the handshake. So yeah, she wasn't particularly happy, but quite an entertaining match to that one. I mean, just on the women's side show or big shot, muguruza won. I mean, we were all predicting part also to win that one. A Miguel ruther has won, which, I mean, does this mean, am I getting carried away, but does this mean she's not just going to go and win the whole caboodle, 'cause she's got through. We say this every time. But we can't, I just say that we can say that. Well, I just think very much at the moment with muguruza that I think she was a player. I would say like kvitova where she could just go on a run and win a tournament. And kvitova has shown that she got to the she got to the final of what was she got to the final Cincinnati, didn't she? Like. Toronto, I think. Was it Toronto? Yeah, I think? Yeah. But I think with muguruza now, we've just got to take based on the season chat. We've just got to take one match at a time and it was a very good win against Clara torsen. Both players very, very big hitting. That second set was very, very tight, toss and arguably should have pushed it to a third, but yeah, muguruza was impressed with given all the losses she's had this season. I just thought, you know, she was just being so fragile that I thought torsen was just going to break through and you did feel that if she had nabbed that second set, she would have had all of the momentum and maybe have run away with it. So for muguruza to get that done in two sets and in the tie break in that second set, yeah it was very, very impressive even though on paper as the night seed you'd have expected her to come through anyway. Yeah, just a correction. You were right, because it did reach the final of Cincinnati. Yeah, I don't know why I thought it was the other one. So apologies, listeners. I mean, Sri von tec is through comfortably today as well, perhaps we thought she might have a bit of a bogey match given her recent form, but yeah, comfortable over Jasmine paulini 6 three 6 love. Yeah, I had really good rhythm. She was very happy, I think, with her performance in the first round. So perhaps she's just gonna zone into old shield tech mode. I don't know. Early days. I love the fact I was reading. She has now got a bagel. She's now sorry, secured a bagel in all of the first round matches. She's played at Grand Slam level this year. So she's dished out four bagels in four round one matches, including against paulini. So yeah, spat to kind of those that formidable field tech. I mean, paulini, on her date, yes, can be a little bit tricky, but yes, she on tech just a bit too much. I think we're all now looking forward to she's feeling tech Sloan Stevens second round, Sloane Stephens coming through greet men and today had a very, very slow start was got broken, got broken again, was 5 love down, lost the first set 6 one, but then kind of found her rhythm and, yeah, came through 6 three 6 three and sets two and three, but yeah, really intriguing match up now between a former U.S. open champion in stone Stevens and the world number one, iguazu tech. Yeah, and a potential feature U.S. open champion. I mean, I thought it was interesting. In her post match interview was saying that in other tournaments, when the top seeds have buys in the first round, you're coming in and your first matches against someone who's already played a match or if it's a qualifier a couple of matches. I mean, obviously you can play a qualifier in the first round of Islam as well. But she was saying it kind of when you were at Islam and you're just in the first round proper and your other opponent is also playing their first match. It's more of a level playing field, whereas the regular events on the tour where as the top seed you're coming in with a buy, you might come up against someone who's like super tuned in from that just having played another match already. Perhaps there's an argument just to get rid of buys at the 1000 events, 500s, et cetera. I know it's been raised before, but perhaps some players would benefit and we know with the depth of the women's game that it's obviously the first round you can be up against some cracking opposition. So you probably really want to be as honed in as you can be, but yeah, just I thought an interesting point, maybe that, I don't know, I know it's been raised before, but yeah, maybe going forwards, they'll maybe they could trial it. But yeah, let's look at some other results from the women's side day Carolina is through. That was a last set tiebreak. She had to win that on against magda linette. Who did lead four one in the third set? But also was up in that tie break. And then I think 7 two up in the tie break, Lynette came back to 8, 7 in the tie break, and then pushed her grab the last three points.

"She's really just made so many strides and she's never she's never been American number one officially because of the quirk that happened in the rankings last season, kenin kept that spot even though sort of in the live ranking, she was down at about 80. She kept her number one spot and pagola didn't get it after the Australian open this year because at Danielle Collins is amazing run to the final. So she's never quite had it, but I think if she were to win the title, this week should get very, very close again. So that's kind of in play for her. And I think she's motivated by that. Unfortunately, though she does have a destroyer next. The other semi final in the top half of the draw is Ben chic against a soccer. Now I'm getting ahead of myself here. I'm already dreaming about the front tech final and it being the start of the rivalry that I say desperately crave. I'm dreaming about it, I'm wanting it. I'm sure it's going to happen. David, though, has got other ideas. When I picked a bench in the newsletter that we do every week, to win the tournament this week after my initial pick of last week when out in the first round, that was Leila Fernández, who was so long ago, it feels like another month altogether. But yeah, I mean, to be honest, I kind of went for bench because everybody else had gone for other people. And also because her points, tally, was quite good. But I always like to have a look at somebody's road through a tournament, and she'd had a schwinn tech like road through the tournament, winning matches, all in straight sets without losing many games at all. And that was always a bit of a sign to me that somebody's just banging for them. And I mean, look, I'm just looking up her head to head against the soccer here, which four one. In her favor. I mean, that's quite something. And the last one was three years ago at the U.S. open when Osaka was the defending champion, but 7 5 6 four, and she's won the last four meetings. The only one that Osaka's won was 2013. So there's something there. And I mean, I think it's counteracted by the fact that Osaka just looks in blistering form at the moment. But she is a player who can look incredible and then hit a bit of a an obstacle and kind of go off the ball pretty dramatically as well. So I think, you know, bench plays well, it could be at the very least an interesting test of where a Sakura is. It's the absolute nightmare match for trying to make a prediction because of what you've said, David, because the tennis I've seen from a soccer other than schwenter has been the best in this tournament. Just the sweetness of the ball striking. Reminded me of Andy Murray's tweet during the Australian open does anyone hit the ball cleaner from the baseline than Osaka. I think she's combined for almost 70 winners in her last two matches against Alison risk and then Danielle Collins who was injured I think in that match. But then you've got the head to head and for one. I mean, it's sort of three now on the pro tour. That's enough of a head to head to suggest there's a matchup problem for Osaka. But all of those wins were as you said in 2019 for banks and maybe it was just a match up that year that really bothered us. I'm fascinated to see them play again today. But bangkit can rush Osaka, I think she can take the ball really early, step into it, take a sark as time away. But basically I've just been reveling in watching us play tennis this week like this again. It's the best she's played. Certainly since last year's Australian open and it's just wonderful to see. Yeah, it is, isn't I found it really uplifting, which you know me a soccer this week. It doesn't feel I know what you're saying, David, about, you know, she can look a dream and then it can go, but she hasn't felt on the edge of that to me this week. She's felt right in her comfort zone. I haven't felt nervous or anxious watching her thinking, you know, this is frail in some way. It's felt just not quite comfortable, but just it's just been really enjoyable and comforting somehow to watch her play this kind of tennis and yeah, I'm excited for these match, but I have already decided that Osaka and schwarze are starting their rivalry in the final of this tournament and I shall did you just roll your eyes at me, Matt? No, I was looking up there head to head, which meant I had to stop at my screen. That's going to be where the Catherine just a sentence with, is that you, I rolling and it not to be directed at me. I'm the eye roller around here. And what is their head to head? So I am so on board this being a rivalry. What's the head to head? I can't think of any matches. They played in Canada 2019 when Osaka won 7 6 6 four. Okay, so that was before Sri von tec had won the French Open very much before she on tech was the force that she is now, and it was still a close itch ish match..
