It’s tough going to a full day of tennis and then trying to think about all the things you were going to write about… several hours later. So I’ll just toss all my random thoughts into this post.
Awesome win for Kuz this morning. She was striking the ball cleaner than anyone I saw on Monday, and despite that second set blip, is in pretty solid form (especially considering the draw).
Tough loss for Lucie, who served for the first set and eventually lost it, as well as the match in three sets. That means Nads is up against Dinara tomorrow. It’s on a non-show court, so I’ll make sure to have tons and tons of tweeting from there to keep you all informed.
Flavs/Dani is hardly worth discussing. Flavs laid down the law in the first set, and once she got the break in the second, that was all. Excellent movement, dealing with the different looks from Dani beautifully, and not being afraid to flip the switch and go for the winner. Reminds me of the Flavs of last year’s hard court season… go figure.
Melanie Oudin can’t buy a win right now. Feel pretty bad for her. I still have no idea how her USO run happened, almost a year later. She’s going to lose a boat load of points in a couple of weeks and it’s not going to be pretty.
I’m pretty pumped for Woztuchova doubles tomorrow, as well as THE MOST INTENSE DOUBLES TEAM EVER Liezel/Nads which is around a similar time. Another great OOP ready for tomorrow. Also, if Aga/Kiri win their match, they face Vez/Bepa in the second round on Thursday. Nomnomnom.
