Should Andy risk suggesting to Kim that his in-laws seem best at the other end of a phone line ?


 Think Andy has enough stuff going on without adding extra stress! smile

Jo has just started. I can't stay up. Good luck Jo - please let's see a "W" in the morning!

Makarova started like a house on fire, but Jo is slowly reeling her in.

Ah pity, not exactly ideal but no disaster either.

Though better watch at her PC in case that guy from Birmingham is around now that she's lost to another "non seed" ( it was Vandeweghe then. Coco on grass, shocking ... ). Makarova clearly has her eye in so doesn't look a bad effort. Though more matches would have been preferable.

I switched on when Jo was serving for the match. I think she served for it twice in the second set.

Excellent match. Jo was great considering her period out. Makarova was on top and Jo was digging in. Didn't have much a play on the two match points (one on serve and one on return).

Credit to Makarova. Disappointing but no real complaints.

This is the only 1 pointer Jo has on her record - impressive 12 months

I was sad to see Jo had lost, but it's good to hear that in context it wasn't a disaster!

Svitolina hammers Halep 6-1 6-1 in the SF. She and her final opponent Wozniacki will move ahead of Muguruza to WRs 4 & 5, the winner to WR 4, with then 4 of the top 5 not having won a Slam title.

With Ka Pliskova having huge points to defend at Cincinnati and the US Open ( 900 + 1300 ) there looks like there could be a right bun fight coming up for WR 1. Although she has clearly relatively fallen back this week that could yet involve Jo. I'd settle for her winning the US Open
