Re: GB Girls of Eastbourne

Eastbourne Qualifying Round 1:
(1)K.Kanepi (Est) def. (W)G.Stoop 6-7(6) 6-1 7-5
(5)E.Makarova (Rus) def. (W)A.Fitzpatrick 7-6(4) 6-3
E.Baltacha def. (W)N.Cavaday 6-2 6-4
R.De Los Rios (Par) def. (W)A.Elliott 2-6 6-2 6-4

Qualifying Round 2:
(2)T.Pironkova (Bul) def. E.Baltacha 7-5 Rtd

Very good performance by Georgie against someone who has just reached a Slam QF, shame she couldn't have taken that third set
Anna 2008 hasn't got going yet
Not a good showing from Naomi, but congrats Bally
Amanda Low first serve percentage which didn't help her at 12 doubles. However, when she did get her first serve in, she did do pretty well behind it

Hope Bally is fit enough for Wimbledon

Re: GB Girls of Eastbourne

Eastboure Main Draw Round 1:
(S)S.Stosur (Aus) def. (W)K.O'Brien 6-4 6-3
(Q)A.Kleybanova (Rus) def. (W)M.South 6-4 6-4

Mel has a nice opener against a qualifier and she defended all her Eastbourne points last week, so a win here would be very nice Could face Azarenka or Rezai in round 2
Katie has a tough match, but if she goes out there and plays well I don't see why she can't win. Could face Mauresmo or Cornet in round 2

GL girls!

Re: GB Girls of Eastbourne

Not a good day overall. But the only math i thought we would win was Elliott. Georgie was a nice suprise, shame she couldn't pull off the big win.

Re: GB Girls of Eastbourne

I've heard that at 5-4 in the final set, Baltacha needed a medical time out on her leg, and then served the match out. But more worringly she had to be carried off the court by 2 WTA Tour supervisors at the end. I did notice that there was a delay at 5-4 in the second, but assumed Cavaday had a problem. Hopefully Bally will play tomorrow and it was only cramp today. However, if it was cramp, it is worrying it occured in a 6-2 6-4 win, where quite little time was spent on court
