I just wanna cheer for Boogie

I shall cover various things with this posting.

Firstly, I've just seen the new WTA rankings. Gosh, that was painful. She's gone down further than I feared after losing points at Melbourne. Down from 140 to 195, totally eclipsing the 178 which she briefly fell to in September 2001.

She put up a good fight in Japan today, winning the first set but then losing the next two against Mi-Ra Jeon (5-7 in the third). So close to a Tier I main draw, but such a pity.

I had an encouraging email from an American person who has seen my Boogie Website, who admires Kristie's attacking style of play in comparison to players who just stand on the baeline all the time, and asks whether she will turn to coaching once she retires from playing (something I had wondered myself...) - will she give something back to the game? I wondered if maybe she will become the coach of one of the young Dutchies, such as Silvana Bauer whom I believe she was watching last week in the juniors at Melbourne.

Next weekend I hope Boogie will be in the qually draw in Paris, and will show us (and indeed show me on Saturday!) just how well she can play! I see Magui Serna is also entered in the singles, where she will be in the main draw - so will Magui and Boogie be playing doubles together? (Busy time for me - Paris on Saturday, and (finally!!) moving house on Monday!)

Yup, Kristie was watching Silvana in Melbourne! At Silvana's first round match, she had to leave half way through the second set for her mixed match!

Boogie and Magui will be playing doubles, I believe, so even if Boogie doesn't make the Paris qually draw she should at least be there. And good luck to her!

Hopefully they won't lose first round this time!

Actually, last year, Boogie played doubles a bit with Magui! Luxembourg for sure wasn't their first tourney together! (I was fixing up Kristie's results yesterday for my Dutch website)

Magüi and Boogie reached Porto's final last year .

And Hopefully they won't lose this time in the first round

Well, here I am, just back from my day trip to Paris, having left home at 0430. Yes I did see Boogie, but I didn't see her play. I will do a longer posting later on but for now I need my beauty sleep.

My report on my day-trip to Paris. Am I mad or what? Read on...
I was out of bed at 0345, so as to be ready to leave my house at 0430, allowing plenty of time to drive to Ashford International in time to get the first Eurostar of the day to Paris. However, I wasn't even sure if the trains would be running, as previous freezing weather had disrupted them yesterday.
It was raining when I left home, but I knew the forecast contained a threat of snow. Within an hour, sure enough, I was driving through thick falling snow, which was beginning to accumulate on the road surface; traffic speeds slowed to about 60 km/h and only one lane was safely negotiable on the motorway. I was barely on target to reach Ashford in time to check in for my train, even before an accident (two or three lorries seemed to have jack-knifed) put a stop to progress for fifteen minutes. However, I finally parked my car twenty-five minutes before the train was due - check-in supposedly has to be done half an hour before the train!
No problem, I got checked in okay, only to learn that the train would be half an hour late. Speed restrictions en route meant we were over an hour late into Paris. I was further held up waiting for a Metro (ligne 5) for nearly half an hour, after which things were okay if slow. I reached the stadium at 1300.
I wondered if in fact Boogie would be playing today, because on the chat boards I had picked up on the fact that her first-round opponent in qualifying was still involved in a challenger tournament. Indeed the order of play showed Boogie v Vierin "to be arranged". (Boogie has has a lucky draw; not only is she the lowest-ranked direct entry into quallies, but her opponent isn't much higher.) I also wanted to see Sandra Kleinova, and I was lucky that her match was third on the schedule for Centre Court, and just about to start when I arrived.
Indeed Sandra Kleinova v Camille Pin was to be the highlight of the day. Kleinova lost the first set 5-7, on a disputed line-call at set point which she was convinced was wrong and had cost her the set. Her inconsistency was reduced in the second set, which she won 6-1 quite quickly, but the final set could have gone either way. In the end, the French crowd were disappointed, Sandra winning it 7-5 after two and a quarter hours.
Shortly before the end of that match, I spotted a certain Dutch girl enter the players' section of the viewing arena. Yes, I think you know who I mean. Someone I'm quite fond of, you know! Looking as good as ever, her face having a glowing radiant tan following her recent visit to Australia.
Later I saw the match Foretz v Perebiynis, the winner of which will hopefully have to face Boogie tomorrow. Neither of them played well, so if Boogie plays Foretz tomorrow she should have an easy time of it, says me!
I had to leave at 1900 to make sure I was back at Gare Du Nord in time for the last Eurostar home (allowing for more possible Metro delays on the way). Two matches had just started at that time, one on each court, but no Boogie. It seemed unlikely that she would be playing today after all.
Naturally the train was the best part of an hour late getting me back to England, and I lost more time when I had to divert off the M25 motorway on the way home because of an accident (and then I got lost in Guildford!). I finally got home more than twenty hours after I had left. Are there any other Boogie fans as mad as me???
So today should have been my day of rest, well it has been a bit, but I've been busy because I'm moving house tomorrow! The world never stops...

Well, now I've had time to peruse the Paris tournament threads, Boogie did indeed play two matches today. Her first-round opponent was a replacement for the person she was originally drawn against. Poor Wennerstrom was double-bagelled by Boogie. Then against the much higher ranked Stephanie Foretz, Boogie won the first set but then lost the next two.

I shall be cheering for Boogie and Magui when they play their first doubles match on Tuesday!

And let's hope her ranking goes up tomorrow, after she won 2 qually matches in Tokyo I guess she'll be back up ten places or so.

Kristie, good luck!!

I think someone had her at about 177 for singles Tim! Actually, I'll go check if slow asses have put up the printables yet!
