2. Two things...how did Security let that guy on the court...

 

And why do Sloane and Serena always draw each other in the first round. Well, if Sloane got her act together and starting winning again, she'd be seeded and this wouldn't happen.

5. Yeah, got the wrong Williams..

 

It's a good win for Sloane, although it doesn't mean she'll get far...she hasn't really shown anything of late to make me think she's turned things around.

3. Just saw my DVR'd footage of Sloan Stevens eliminating Venus......

D*mn. But good for Sloan, now if she can keep it going....although I'll miss Venus.

I really like Isner.

Indifferent on McHale. She really doesn't do much for me.

8. Came over to see if you were all

here, I knew you would be.

Don't want to be a spoiler so I will just say hello and mention that one of my favorite things about the French is to see Fabrice Santoro. Loved watching him play back in the day☺.

But then, revenge is sweet also.

But she worked her ass off to get back to the top after very serious shoulder surgery...I give her a lot of credit.

15. Actually, that is why I started to like her.

 

I respect the hard work she put in. And I feel she really grew up. She is kind of one of the elder stateswomen of the game now and, to me anyway, it seems like she kind of has cherished and embraced that role.

16. Can you really listen to a whole match of that sound she emits????

I can't, I can only listen to about two of her service games, and then she's on mute. Ugh..... and it's got nothing to do with how hard she works.

17. I can.

 

I really don't have an issue with the grunts and groans and screams, and I've seen some of the "loud" ones in person. Doesn't bother me.

22. I don't think so.

 

The other semi is Ana Ivanovic (8-1 Serena Head-to-head) against Lucie Safarova (8-0 Serena H2H).

30. I could just slap me.......I stopped and deleted my DVR of the match....

Serena had lost the first set was losing the second coughing so bad, looked like she was going to quit.....and I stopped the DVR and deleted it....found out later on ESPN that she came back and won. I didn't see it.
