Again, I say these power games are reckless and not effective in tiebreaks

Personally, I find it the most stressful sport to watch. I'm a die hard Federer fan and the Olympics were rough.

LOOK AT RETURNS IN PLAY VS FIRST SERVE.

Layla is getting 56% back to Sabalenka 62%! That should not be that close. I keep harping on it but it's so important.

Pffff, quit your whining. You've had it good. Real masochists cheer for Shapo.

How does she take that first set after witnessing the first three games.

Incredible resolve and belief!

That lob by Leylah looked like it was landing in, it was just a terrific shot at exactly the right time.

Tennis is the most stressful sport to watch. The scoring system is evil.

Women's matches I find more stressful because it's best of 3 obviously, men's matches at slams are a bit more chill and more of a marathon when it's BO5.

Apparently Leylah has a strategy: let her win your first service game. That is the key to winning the set apparently.

This looks like the start of the opening set - I'd be okay with a repeat of set 1.

Sabalenka reminds me of the female sidekick of a Bond villain in the 1980s.

Pretty loose right now from Leylah, lot of trouble consolidating right now.

EDIT: Way to keep it together. Ice cold. Bit of luck having that last looper drop in, but it's Aryna's fault if she can't do anything with a ball like that - why would you assume it'd be out?
