Serena is tight with her serve today. I would advice see her stay away fro the spin serve for first serves.it moves too much Serena needs to stick with the hammer..the flat serve..when that is clicking her confidence soars. Then come back to the kick or spin serve foe 2nd serves. Once she hits her rhythm then mix her serves like a good baseball pitcher

After four days of play, of the 32 seeds who were supposed to reach only 18 made it there. That is a 56.25% success rate. That is too low. In ATP, it is 75% at this AO.

I am projecting the following three upsets for day 6.

1. Caroline Wozniacki to beat Konta
2. Aussie Daria Gavrilova to beat Timea Bacsinzsky
3. Caroline Garcia to beat Barbora Styrcova

(pardon my spelling).

I agree w/ the first 2. Garcia is a headcase and will likely choke away any advantage she gets in the match.

Pocket Rocket (and my pick to win AO outright) is gone after 3 hour long fight. Cry

I did not have any upsets on my radar today. However, Kuzzy is already in trouble, down a set.

Kerbie ousted in straights by Coco Puffs. Very uninspiring match from Angie. When is the last time we lost both #1's on the same day in a slam?

Today was same as before. When serving Serena is better for lack of a better word "served " to stick with my above suggestions.

For the sake of completeness, let me record Pliskov's upsets.

Now, we are just two more upsets away from a Coco vs. MLB final Lay Down Laughing

Yes, Coco is disliked by Vee too right now. Vee down a set that went to TB. Upset brewing.
Coco returning too good.
