Ostapenko hit 54 winners, but it wasn't just the sheer number - it was also the timing.

"The groundsmen, they perhaps could have shown a bit more urgency being a big tournament".
He was announced as a first baseman. The pitcher out of Spokane who missed most of last season and the first part of this season while recovering from Tommy-John has been almost impossible for opposing batters to figure out this season. His.343 average is second-best on the team, and he's also second in home runs (17) and RBIs (56).

While Scotland manager Gordon Strachan hailed Leigh Griffiths' two free-kicks as the "best-ever" scored by his country, there is no doubt Hart could have done better, certainly with the second goal when he again showed the mental fragility that frequently affects him.
I went prepared out there. Mladenovic will play Switzerland's Timea Bacsinszky in the quarter-final. With the boisterous crowd willing her every step of the way, Mladenovic was the more opportunistic player in the final set. But it wasn't much of an upset, as she fell to 11th seed Caroline Wozniacki in three sets, 6-1, 4-6, 6-2.
