I post about tennis (a lot), anime, books, and other random stuff.

I can post a lot during tennis matches or if I'm following a tournament. If you don't care about tennis, I suggest filtering or temporary muting.

I have zero interest in sports betting. Replies or mentions about that will be ignored, muted, or blocked.

I support trans inclusion in sports and human rights everywhere.

Leylah missing that put away 😬

3rd set should be an arm wrestle ...

@emarktaylor @tennis

It's a good match up. Generally fun rallies and plenty of great shot making, but marred by very inconsistent serving.

nikunashi,
@nikunashi@mastodon.social avatar

@emarktaylor @tennis

It's been a pattern. Parry serves a stinker, Leylah mimics, then they go back to playing well.

I thought Coco was toast when she was 4-0 down in this set.

Tied at 5 games all.

Apart from a phase half way through the 2nd set where she forgot how to serve, Xiyu Wang smashes her way to a straight set victory in 1h36m ...

Stakusic made her work very hard in those rallies.

A couple of neologism (at least in my head) inspired by @pluralistic 's enshitification:

encrapulation (or encrapsulation):

wrapping a product or service inside a layer of AI

enshitfic:

fiction generated by AI, also 'non-fiction' generated by AI, so yeah, basically any written work excreted by AI

Ugh. Both Womens Semi-Final matches will play after 3 am EST.

Leylah tried that Garcia like return position for one game (did not work at all) and it seemed to throw her off for the rest of the set.

nikunashi,
@nikunashi@mastodon.social avatar

@emarktaylor @tennis

Still hasn't quite recovered from flushing that 1st set away.

Down a break now and unless Parks' serve goes away again she could be toast.

I don't think wearing the Thigh Bandage of Death is going to prevent Siegemund winding up the Aussie crowd in her match vs Storm Hunter

It surprises me that we don't see more compression shorts on tour given how many tweaks (and subsequent wraps) to the upper thighs we see.

Xiyu has a MTO for a hamstring (I think) - and she's back wearing the Thigh Bandage of Death!!

It's very fashionable, seems like every other match has one player sporting it.

Oy, winner of Collins/Kerber match play Iga in the 2nd round.

@emarktaylor @MagentaRocks @tennis

Looks like probably

Noskova R3
Svitolina R16
Ostapenko (or Vika) QF
Rybakina (or Pegula) SF

Coco is in the bottom half.

Anisimova - Samsonova warming up. No idea where this one is going to go.

Both ankles are pretty tightly wrapped. Having the right one re-done to add padding - maybe a blister issue?

nikunashi,
@nikunashi@mastodon.social avatar

@emarktaylor @MagentaRocks @tennis

I have the sound off too 😄 (listening to AO radio of the Sinner match).

Just my observations from the procedures (and my own experience with almost every possible lower limb injuries 😅 )

@nikunashi@mastodon.social avatar

@tennis Anyone catch why Vondrousova pulled out?

nikunashi,
@nikunashi@mastodon.social avatar

@emarktaylor @tennis She's definitely out (and TT in), I just missed the why part of the announcement.

nikunashi,
@nikunashi@mastodon.social avatar

@emarktaylor @tennis

Blurb on the WTA site:

"No.3 seed Marketa Vondrousova withdrew ahead of her first-round match citing a hip injury. Taylor Townsend took her place in the draw as a lucky loser. "

nikunashi,
@nikunashi@mastodon.social avatar

@emarktaylor @tennis

Hip injury sounds very not great ahead of AO. Hopefully nothing serious.

Stephens might yet survive!

Yuan played some extremely intense tennis.

Still no excuse for Sloane to have lost though. She's just allergic to Australia.
