If there's anyone who's ok with all the attention being forced on Caro as the Slamless #1, ruiner of women's tennis and sport in general, it's Bepa. She's now gone a full 52 weeks without a title. As the #3 player in the world, that's actually kind of crazy. She's a title-less #3.
So let's get off the schnide, Bepa.
The top two seeds in Doha will have at it tomorrow. Caro's been absolutely dominant all week, dusting aside Mono, 61 61. Bepa on the other hand, has had to wiggle out of some tough jams all week. She had triple break point against her at 4-4 in the third set against JJ today, and somehow slinked out of it to take the final set 64. She definitely isn't at her best, but her ability to win despite that fact has to give her confidence.
I'm going to give the #1 some respect and tip her for the win. She's moving really well and seeing the ball so big right now.
But, you know, go Blue Eyes.
