Re: Australian Open: Singles R1 def. Barrois 63/76 Doubles R1: Misa/BoJo vs. Ekat/All

She changed her service? Did she have any changes apart from that? I really think her forehand can be a lot better.
The next match must be on show court, I hope someone can record it...

Yeah they changed her service motion a bit.
The biggest change was actually made on her FH. She used to have a huge backswing, it's now alot shorter.

Here's a vid of her match. You can see some differences

Ivanovic just did an interview at Game,Set and Mats and said: I've actually never played her before.

They played twice in 2006?

Ana has a short term memory?
Not weird that she forgot it though

Re: Australian Open: Singles R1 def. Barrois 63/76 Doubles R1: Misa/BoJo vs. Ekat/All

Misa lost in doubles, 6-7(1) 6-4 3-6.

Bojo and Misa squandered a setpoint in the first set.

Singles is more important though, And Misa will play at 1 AM CET against Ivanovic on Hisense Arena!

Definitely will follow it, I hope Eurosport will broadcast it

Re: Australian Open: Singles R1 def. Barrois 63/76 Doubles R1: Misa/BoJo vs. Ekat/All

I think Misa and BoJo did fairly well. Better than i expected.. First time they played doubles together and Ekaterina/Alla are good doubles players and play together very often. Too bad they lost though

Hopefully ES will broadcast it. Sharapova is playing at the same time though, so they may broadcast her But otherwise there are still plenty of livestreams Very glad it's the first match, still a 'reasonable' time for us

So happy she finally have a real coach to help her improve her technique.
Just saw a little from the short video, she seems to need more time for the chance but it is a good start.

You can also watch on ES2! I have the ES Player on my iPad, so I'll stay in bed and watch from there. If it isn't broadcasted on ES or ES2 (Which I would find pretty strange, I'll get my computer to catch a livestream. I don't want to miss it! )

Oh, that's cool I don't have ES2, but it definetly will be broadcasted on ES. Hopefully on ES international and otherwise i indeed will get on the pc and watch it on the livestream.
God, i'm just so excited How often can we see Misa play 'live' ?
I don't expect her to win against Ana, but i really hope she can play well. She was terrible against Serena

Omg I missed the match, can you believe it.

I set my alarm, but for some reason I woke up 3 hours late to see that it was turned off?

Anyway, Ivanovic def. Krajicek. 6-2 6-3

Re: Australian Open: Singles R2 vs. Ivanovic[21] + Lost Doubles R1

This match was hardly worth waking up for

Well, she did what she had to do here. Win a round. No harm done I guess. Could pair up with a better doubles partner next time

Re: Australian Open: Singles R2 vs. Ivanovic[21] + Lost Doubles R1

No shame to lose to Ivanovic. She still needs to get more Rhythm in her serve and also on her strokes but she can only go up from here.
Next tournament is the Fed Cup. Fed Cup doesn't count for the ranking right?
