So Day 6 had arrived and we had the day of reckoning; Granny Vee v Camila Giorgi! I mean this was the marquee match of the day and they had it up first on the stadium. I was into this match not because I am a huge Venus fan but because I know there was very much the possibility for Venus to lose this match after all that smart talking I was doing with those memes. I know Venus is capable of playing like the former No.1 she is and then also act like she barely know what to do with a tennis racquet on court.

Well it was the latter Venus who showed up to play Giorgi. Venus was just not doing anything with theSo Day 6 had arrived and we had the day of reckoning; Granny Vee v Camila Giorgi! I mean this was the marquee match of the day and they had it up first on the stadium. I was into this match not because I am a huge Venus fan but because I know there was very much the possibility for Venus to lose this match after all that smart talking  with doing with those memes. I know Venus is capable of playing like the former No.1 she is and then also act like she barely know what to do with a tennis racquet on court. ball of much consequence. She was playing on the backfoot and at times, it seemed as though she was playing on backfeet and on her hands as well. She was well off on her shots. However, that is not to say that Giorgi was not playing well because she was! She was playing amazing tennis! In fact it seemed as though despite her diminutive stature, she can wail on the ball. She was playing the type of tennis that was very much the norm back in the early 2000’s “Big Babe Tennis” She was the one rushing the net, getting the forehand well measured on the line and serving up a storm. It was Venus’s game plan being employed against her.

However, Granny Vee was patient and as she would later say, “This old cat still has some tricks in her bag.” She was on the brink of defeat as Giorgi served for the match. Even I had given up hope of her winning the match. Giorgi was up 3-5 and then Venus steadied herself like her former self; Vintage Venus. Venus reeled off 4 straight games to now put Camila on the back foot. Camila was able to save a set point and pushed the 2nd set to a tiebreaker. It was do or die for Granny Vee and I swear, I really expected her to wither. I cannot begin to tell you how many tiebreakers or as I like to call them, heartbreakers I have seen Granny Vee just been destroyed. US Open 2014 3rd round v Sara Errani. Yes that match and here we are again with another Italian in the 3rd round of a major and Granny Vee is again up against the ropes.

Hold my towel for a minute while I go deal with this itch!

The tennis gods hear my prayers and they delivered. Ebony Starr shone bright like a diamond and raced ahead in the break to take it 7-3 points. A 3rd and decisive set was on needed. In this set, Vintage Venus was on full display. She made formidable tennis throughout the entire 3rd set and Giorgi was left wondering who the hell is this woman and where the hell was she all match long. It must have been a bitter pill to swallow as she could get no chance to boss the points around. Her serve was her great undoing as she had 16 double faults total for the match. Venus was relentless in the 3rd set and her effort paid off as she closed the match 4-6 7-6 6-1.

Up next for the veteran is the newly reformed Aga Bratzwanka who now until the tutelage of Martina. Aga has been rolling through throw this draw thus like a boulder down a hill. She is picking up speed and crushing everything in her path. She has played three matches and in each of them, baked up a bagel for her opponents. She delivered the 3rd of those bagels to Varvare Lepchenko 6-0 7-5. Victoria Azarenka followed up her impressive 2nd round win to beat Barbora Zahlavova-Styrcova (25) 6-4 6-4. She will take on Dominika Cibuttkova (11) who knocked out Lordlize Cornemort (19) 7-5 6-2. Garbine Muguruza (24) took on Timea Bacsinszky and showed herself to be in great form these championships. She won 6-3 4-6 6-0. She will next face Serena whom she took out in straight sets 6-2 6-2 at the French Open last year.

Serena had a toughish time against Elena Svitolina (26) who is also looking to be playing in great form this tournament. Svitolina came out on fire v Serena in the opening set. She was not missing a thing and Serena was forced on her backfoot. She was out of position for all her shots and making errors galore. She dropped the set 4-6. However, knowing Serena, she takes these lapses in concentration in stride. In the 2nd and 3rd sets it was all Serena and Svitolina was nowhere to be found. Serena took it 4-6 6-2 6-0. Two other Americans would join the Williams sisters in the Round of 16; Madison Keys and Madison Brengle. Keys scored the big upset of the day when she knocked out Petra Kvitova (4) 6-4 7-5 and Brengle took out another American CoCo Vandeweghe 6-3 6-2. It is rather a disappointment result for Petra because I really thought she was going to make something of this run here in Melbourne and at least make the quarters if nothing at all. Alas Petra will only play well on the grass of Wimbledon.

Keys letting Petra know she's thankful for the free match

Well after Day 5’s titanic upset, Day 6 proved to be very somber. There was no drama unless you count Kei Horsikori playing for the Dodge City Tennis Team. This frigger seems to think that it is okay to be dropping random sets to scrubs. It is as though he is incapable of playing a complete match from start to finish. This time, he gave American Steve Johnson the 1st set 6-7 and then for the rest of the match, it was back being Horsikori who is ranked 5 in the world playing a guy who is ranked who knows and who cares in the world. Horsikori through 6-7 6-1 6-2 6-3. This sorta time wasting tactic will not bode well for him in the latter half of this tournament; if he even get there.

Fake Fire Ferrer is still around!

Djoker (1), Stanley (4) and Milos (8) were all showing themselves in impeccable form as they made it through their 3rd round match in straight sets. Djoker took out Tabasco Verdasco (31) 7-6 6-2 6-4 and Stanley took out Jarkko Nieminen 6-4 6-2 6-4. These top guys were not the only ones with straight set victories. FeFe Lopez (12) took care of Jerzy Janowicz 7-6 6-4 7-6 and Guermillo Garcia-Lopez aka GGL won over a physically struggling Vasek Popiscle 6-2 6-4 6-2.  A resurgent Gilles Muller has found some fine form again and made it through to the Round of 16 of a major as knocked out Mountain Troll BFG Isner (19) 7-6 7-6 6-4. Ferrer (9) also won but he needed 4 sets to get by Gilles Simon (19) 6-2 7-5 5-7 7-6 to set up a date with Horsikori in the 4th round.  Djoker will play Muller for a place in the quarterfinals, Stanley will play GGL and FeFe Lopez will play Raonic. Should be some exciting contests coming up!
