There was some beautiful symmetry in Day 7’s results yesterday.
On the Ashe day session we had both Rafa and Serena show just how easily they can deal with a sudden challenge and go up a gear or two when needed.
Then come the evening we had another two former champions DelPo and Sloane Stephens proving they are more than capable of dispelling their labels as one-slam wonders. Elise Mertens and Borna Coric were extremely tricky opponents.
On the new Louis Armstrong both Karolina Pliskova and Dominic Thiem continue to quietly and confidently scythe their way through the draw and in so doing are looking stronger and stronger with every win. The Austrian dumping out a weary defending finalist Anderson.
John Isner’s 2018 gets even better, the American overcame Milos Raonic in four authorative sets but Elina Svitolina’s underperforming continued unfortunately, losing in three to Sevastova.
