Miami Report

I was there from the second round through the first semifinal.

I saw a billion matches, so just ask what you want.

How bad was the wind?

Proud to be an American
Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

What happened to Jelena Jankovic? She is still doing better than this time last year but another early loss kinda surprised me.

I watched this match. Jelena was in complete control up until 6-2 5-2. She was bothered by Mara's shots, and at a changeover in the 2nd set tiebreak I heard her say to her camp "it doesn't bounce" referrring to Mara's shots. She just lost it mentally and couldn't recover. Mara played well and Jelena had a meltdown that resembled 2006.

Venus =
Serena = not the best, but she fought hard and played good when it mattered.

thanks

Yeah I saw part of it. Ana was hitting forehands all over the place, and not many landed in the court. Shedova played solid and dictated a lot of rallies, but Ana made too many UE's.

I watched the 3rd set.

Both of their serves were crap, and both were trying to give each other games.

But Na was a bit more steady from the baseline.

Kim was pretty bad though, missing forehands all over the place.

She served very bad when it mattered most.

Do You think Shvedova is Top 30/20 material?

I missed her match vs. Razzano, but from what I heard from the crowd it was pretty scary.

She was really good from the matches I saw of her (vs. Nadia and Anna).
