Twitter for iPhone : Thoroughly excited for today’s battle between FAA and Ruusuvuori

Many similarities in their games. FAA holds a slight edge in the serve/FH/net play categories, but don’t sleep on Ruusuvuori’s ability to pop one off at any point. If Ruus serves well, this will be close

Twitter for iPhone : Watching Simona Halep track down shot after shot in every rally she plays will truly never get old

She’s got a counter in her playbook for every possible opponent gamestyle, and injects a dose of physicality into every match she plays. Currently leads French 64 11

Twitter for Android : It's a 1st main draw win for 20-yo Hailey Baptiste! She's through to R2 after defeating Caroline Garcia 4-6, 7-6(4), 6-3.

Garcia served for the match in the second but Hailey held strong, got the break and took control in the third. 💪🏼

Up next: Inglis

Twitter for iPhone : Another round of #AusOpen observations

- Quite confident Jiri Lehecka cracks the Top 100 this season. Think Giron but with more pop
- Kasatkina/Iga R3 is 1000% happening
- Welcome back Pavs
- 20 minutes of Isner/Cressy was MORE than enough
- HAILEY BAPTISTE!!

Twitter for iPhone : Hard to describe this result as anything but disastrous for Humbert

After building some quality momentum during ATP Cup, the 23 year-old Frenchman squanders an opportunity against the veteran Gasquet. Created 4 BPs to Gasquet’s 10. Still lacks a Plan B in his game

Twitter for iPhone : Early takeaways from #AusOpen Day 2

- Puzzling start to 2022 continues for Kvitova. Trails Cirstea 5*-2. Very little rhythm to anything she’s attempting
- Murugruza in cruise control vs. Burel
- So far so good for Schwartzman (oddsmakers thought today might get tricky)

Twitter Web App : After quarantining for seven days in a hotel room in Adelaide, Sebastian Korda is coming out of his cage and he's been doing just fine.

On the young American called 'the safest pick' of the pack to do big things in tennis.
