from ma blog;
SMITH def HEMM 4-6, 7-5, 10-4
Wow. At first Hemm was clearly outclassing Smith, Smith couldn't seem to handle Hemm's power strokes and had some UEs.
So left to see other matches.
Later was shocked to discover Smith playing the Quarterfinal against Wetmore
WETMORE def MCINTOSH 6-2, 6-2
RAMOS def WEBB 6-2, 6-2?
Couldn't watch those 2 matches due to unfavorable court locations.
ENTEKHABI def BHARGAVA 6-2, 6-7, 10-4
Ditto. Watched from far~~~ away
The match was brutally long
WALTERS def LEWIS 2,1
Also couldn't see due to reclusive location.
HARROW def DECKER-SADOWSKI 4,0
Was a bit hard to watch, a bit far.
Anyway today wasn't D-S's day, committed too many UEs.
MACKEY def WORKMAN 1,2
ELLISON def PROVANCHA 3,1
Ellison was the more powerful..
SMITH def WETMORE 6-1, 6-1
Wetmore ball bashed herself to defeat
RAMOS def ENTEKHABI 0,1
Also was held far away but Ramos seemed to blow E off the court..maybe
E was too spent after the brutal rally against Bhargava.
WALTERS def HARROW 4,2
W was just better.
ELLISON def MACKEY 0,2
It was a battle of weird serve motions.
Ellison did her usual thing and Mackey...she performed the 'Wolf' , bouncing
the ball, leg-through before serving
So the semifinal will be;
SMITH vs RAMOS
WALTERS vs ELLISON
Well, a predictable outcome, I guess.
PANTIC/GAYTAN-LEACH def D-S/HARROW
The latter team fought well, they definitely had touch and control.
I think at some time they deliberately targeted G-L
But G-L's serve was good, and they at the later stage came to dominate the net and
made lots of overheads and easy putaways.
BHARGAVA/WATLERS def RAMOS/WETMORE
Pepp team was the better team, not much to say.
