Sydney Qualies Friday Report

Ok well it was really hot and i saw some glimpses of each matches . . i was SMSing scores for most of the day so hope you enjoyed that too !!


Perry d Dominikovic 61 62

Evie was out of sorts . . way short of match practice and the scoreline shows what it was. There was some close games but evie's second serve was crap and Perry has too much pace of her shots for evie too handle

Monique adamzack d Barrios 62 76


Her backhand was on fire today, absolutely rock solid throughout the entire match. Monique played the bigger points better and you could tell that she wanted it more out there. barrious came to the net quite a lot when i was watching and her shots were finding the right areas to come in and monique usually hit a passing winner. After Monique won the last point she screamed out and punched her fist at the ground. BOO YAA !!! (definately should get a Oz open WC)

Rezai d Hewson 61 46 62

The match was alot closer then the scores indicate. In the third set emily had her chances to go to 3-1 but got a 'time valiation' warning and never really recovered from that. It was a game of spin vs power and Emily hit her shots with so much top spin it was really effective in countering Rezai game but too many of Emily's shots were way tp short and too many daouble faults cost her. (deserves oz qualifying WC)

Schrff d Breadmore 61 64

Breadmore got smacked in the first set - pure and simple - Julia had to much power and too much skill. Lauren in the second started returning better and deeper and was able to get a better score line. Got a few dodgy calls on her serve which didnt help but too many poor shot choices. Lauren had her thigh strapped throughout the match.

Lepchenko d Musgrave 60 60

The less said the better - Lep never let trudi into the match. Nothing of trudi's would work today she tried volleying, flat groundies, top pins, slices and it was just one of those days for her out there . Lep had great passing shots and her returns were really deep and gave trudi no chance

Yulia Beygelzimer d Anastassia Rodionova 67 64 62

FUNNY FUNNY FUNNY !! Honestly if Rod had her head screwed on correctly she could easily be top 50 !! She questioned her point that went against her, cried on court, called the tournament ref, urgued with the umpire, left the court without telling anyone and just plain acted like a spoiled brat.

This was just about the best match of the day and full credit to both girls for putting it on . . in the end it was more the case of Anasstassia making errors then Yulia hitting winners but saying that Anastassia has a nice forehand

Kanepi d Wozniak

although i didnt see alot of this match i could hear that there were lots of breaks of serves and faults. Both girls were going for there shots and hitting some really nice winners on the forehand courtside

Peng vs Tu ????

Match was still going when i left but both girls were giving it 110%, from the looks Peng was the stronger in the third set and was hitting very very hard from the back of the court. Tu was really relying on placement and accuracy whilst Peng was pounding the ball back hoping for the error

Sun d Brianti

A really good match to watch as both girls played awesome in patches and bad in the others. Sun has a really strong forehand and deserved to win in the end

Sugiyama d Dubous

This was a nice easy match for Ai, played all over Stephie and never gave her a chance. Played a very smart all court game and dictated most of the points during the match.

She does sound a bit pissy out there. I remember seeing her in WTT and at the mixed dubs Wimby final she played and she's quite good, but if she's a b**** who cares, right?

Re: Sydney Qualies Friday Report

Am I reading this right? Ai Sugiyama has to qualify? That's an outrage!What's the world coming to???!!!

Note on Tu: if she is relying on placement and accuracy, you know she's in trouble! ha ha
