  1. Also, how is the Monterrey qualifying supposed to work? I see that she is scheduled for Saturday.

  2. So in the last 18 months, Genie has played Hibino 4 times and is 0-4 and Leylah Annie has played Hibino 4 times and is 3-1….. Any chance that Fernandez could go straight to the main draw at Roland Garros or is she just too far back?

    • WAYYYYY too soon to tell. But, let’s say she won Acapulco this week. Unlikely, but you never know. She’d almost be straight in just with that. And she’d have another 6 weeks in which to do some things.
      So it’s not outside the realm of possibility.
      But I’m pretty big on people (fans, but mostly players) not getting too far ahead of themselves. As a philosophy. It almost always backfires.

      As for that you’re … implying, a lot of things have to do with matchups. Hibino’s game style is kryptonite for players like Bouchard, especially players like Bouchard when their confidence is low. Fernandez does many of the same things Hibino does, but can be a little more aggressive. So it’s a matchup that favors her more than it does Bouchard.

      • Not quite so soon anymore!!!!! Wow, straight sets again. I have been able to see the highlights and it looks like Leylah Annie (she prefers both names right?) is playing with a ton of confidence. Heather Watson will be a different challenge however.
