    MacMac, Harrison Christian, Krueger Mitchell all with nice Cincinatti qualies wins, as Smyczek, Opelka fall short. To be fair, Opelka vs Dolgopolov isn't a great qualies match for the young fella! The women's qualies in Cincinnati seem absolutely brutal in terms of the competition. Giorgi? Puig? All of them in the qualies. Nice win from Townsend.

    Sheesh, didn't know Haase made Canada semis. Well done. Nice Zverev Alex vs Shapo match. Shapo has the star power. Maybe Zverev the younger will make Federer think twice about the next Gen. Haha!!! No way!!! Federer lives for these matches!!!

    Sloane Stephens and Wozniaki, great ball striking. I like Stephens a lot and like that Wozniaki takes a full cut at the ball. And that both cam volley. Great athletes. Though Wozniaki had Stephens number today and it wasn't as tough an outing as it could have been, how great was it that it wasn't a cold handshake at net? A nice well played comment from Stephens. Finally. Two players that appreciate the competition and are big enough to wish each other well. I'm hoping Stephens keeps at it. Such a nice game. Wozniaki has had an excellent year.

    Andrew - yes, I can't believe the drivel that comes out of Cahill's mouth. And I have an idea it's the wrong psychology for Simona. She's paying for him now I understand. I like Sloane's tennis - good all-round stuff.

    I suppose Cahill was referring to Simona's comeback against Svitolina in Paris but I still think it's the wrong approach - that was then and this is now, more or less.Different court, different tactics etc. Svitolina maybe was thinking of Paris - and her answer in Toronto - just get in there first and hammer on. Simona is a great escapologist.

    Ok fair enough saying think Paris. Still - surface? Nothing specific, like go for the corners (etc). If I'm a player thinking about Paris in an entirely new match. I agree with you Catherine. Different tournament, surface, a determined opponent (who played well for sure). Bad scouting again. You can play same player but if they improved they aren't same player and conditions aren't same either!!!

    I guess Cahill can say look Simona you did better than every other seed here with the semifinals. Muguruza, Ostapenko, all the slam winners lost earlier and you were last one standing, Svitolina was motivated to beat you and that's best she has. Now you've seen it and I can help you in occ next time you play her. I'll just say Think about Toronto.

    As she heads out of locker room Cahill says remember Simons, "think about Toronto and your speech in Paris and you'll be fine" If he said go get her tiger that would be better!
