S4E at the Brisbane International.

Hey guys,

Ive been at the Brisbane International from Friday and ill be there until Thursday. Im also going to all the night sessions.

Instead of writing a huge report you guys can just ask questions. Ive seen most of the players so you can ask me anything you want. Even what they were wearing

Re: S4E at the Brisbane International.

Take any pics?

Hope you have fun


I'd appreciate anything on Ivanovic, Bartoli, Azarenka (particularly if you see her in doubles) and Niculescu. Also if you see Black & Huber that would be cool too.

I saw a little of Sesil's match today. She was playing well but was a little defensive at times (standing too far back.) She was hitting some nice winners as well. She can do some damage in the Main Draw.

I watched Niculescu vs Pironkova. It was a really good match which basically consisted of Pironkova hitting hard and deep and Niculescu trying to break Pironkova's rhythym. Tsveti backhand was on fire today. She hit some fabulous winners off that side. The points were rather long and it was intense. Both girls were pumped up. Including their coaches. Was a fun game to watch.

Yes. I saw Ana practicing on Pat Rafter Arena. Her and her coach were doing this drill were Ana would stand on the serviceline and her coach would hit some loopy balls and Ana would hit them for winners off her forehand. She was absoullutley creaming these. She wasnt missing any at all and most were learning very deep. She then also did it on the Backhand side. She missed a few but overall was very impressive. She seemed to be in a good mood as she was smiling and laughing alot.

I watched Azarenka's singles today. She played so well and looked very confident. She wasnt making any errors at all. She was getting down really low on the backhand and was seving well. Bondarenko was not playing good at all. Vika was typically whingey but she performed very well. I have also seen her practicing quite alot.

Re: S4E at the Brisbane International.

Ive seen Black and Huber a few times. There were hitting together. Mainly Huber would serve and Black would return. Ive also seen Black roaming the grounds often.

Re: S4E at the Brisbane International.

Bartoli played very well today. Monika was nervous and made quite a few errors but Marion was in the zone. She has changed her service motion again. Her legs are really weird in her new motion and has slimmed down quite alot.

She hit so many winners today! She was also practicing alot. Her coach was running her all around the court. I am predicitng Bartoli to have a very good year.
