I just cannot believe this news - Ash Barty retires at age 25:

I hope she is just taking a year or two off and that she will return soon thereafter. Much too good a player, and such a wonderful personality, for her to leave the game so soon.

She's likely going to try her hand at the LPGA Tour. She's "retired" before and returned. But she really loves Golf and Aussie Rules Football, so wouldn't be surprised to see her try her hand at professional golf. She is an excellent player.

The Queen is back. An awesome match with Harmony Tan at Wimby:

She has complained of a sinus problem and wore a medical bandage on her face. Great effort despite the obvious wear and tear on her legs.

Her performance yesterday signaled that she should just go ahead and retire. She’s a bit embarrassing out there at this point.

Harmony Tan isn't even in the Top 100 of the WTA rankings. If she is rapidly rising in the rankings and does well henceforth then it would be to her credit and not so much a sign of Serena's decline. But if she loses right away then it may be a sign Serena's career is in serious decline. On that basis it might be a good idea to go into coaching since her little girl is already showing some promise in tennis.

Simona Halep > Kirsten Flipkens

Kirsten announces her retirement after 21 years in the tennis. Wow. Doesn't seem like that much. Will be missed as she has always been a true class act.

Flipkens is an excellent player and a better person. Agreed.

Harmony Tan steam rolled Katie Boulter 6-1 6-1 in the Wimby round of 32. Evidently she is on a tremendous hot streak. On that basis it appears her win over Serena was not quite flukey as it appeared to be at first.

If this keeps up her WTA rankings will go up considerably. At the same time it may prove that Serena is not quite finished. We shall see what happens next.

I bet the tv ratings will go way up for her matches.
