Ah, anyone watching the two young tennis players from the USA that are going

to rule the tennis world??? It’s going to be a fun couple of decades for women’s tennis. Kinda like when the Williams sisters ruled tennis for dang near forever. Serena is still doing fine, but she’s a momma, and what, 37????? and Venus she’s what 39???? Yah Coco Gauff, and Sophia Kenin ARE the new USA face of women’s tennis.

3. Watched a bit of the kvitova match earlier.

She looked pretty sharp as the match wore on, breaking in the 3rd from game point. Gauff is impressive, though. Commentators were remarking that she's grown since last year, longer arms, more physicality in her shoulders, etc. Another reminder of just how young she really is.

2. I'm rooting against Gauff...

...just because, on principle, I don't think they should let 15-year-olds participate in these adult tournaments. Let them participate in the juniors tournaments until they reach 18; that's what the junior tournaments are for. You have to be at least 18 to drive, sign contracts, sign leases, join the military ... you should have to be at least 18 to play in these adult tournaments, too. IMHO.

5. Then you would end up with someone being touted as #1

When they really weren’t the absolute best.

6. Too bad someone had to lose this one

I don't know if winning the first set tie-breaker was too much for Gauff.

But both Gauff and Kenin (and their partners) are still in the women's doubles.

10. I was watching; sorry I didn't see this at the time. It was a great match.

Nothing would be better for the women's side than some established rivalries, which hasn't happened in a long time. I enjoyed both players, and I'd love to see them go head to head in the future.
