Aleks

Ole Molasses Feet. Until she gets that movement and fitness sorted out, I don't think she can be a viable top 30 player.

OMG Aleks, she was so slow today! she couldn't keep her level up during all the pts, really disappointing she had a really nice draw! Well work on that game for Hobart and do better there ....

but Morita was playing really well, almost not missing at all after that 5-3 down in the first set

Wozniak~ElTabakh ~Marino~Eugenie Bouchard...and the other Canucks!
Maria Sharapova~Anna Chakvetadze~Jelena Dokic~Laura Robson ~Sabine Lisicki

Is Morita hyperactive? Feel like she jumped all the time during the match.

Re: Auckland R2: (Q)Morita def. Wozniak 7-5 6-2

definitely improved the serve
impressive footwork
would not have known that she had played 4 three set matches previously
was down 3-5* and set point
called the trainer at 3-1 second set and was treated at 3-2

incredible defense
ran down every ball
was striking the two handed inside out forehand particularly well
hit a one handed forehand down the line on a break point and was completely off the court

good job!

she must have learned that from Sugiyama
hahaha
a lot of slapping of the leg
that was probably the reason why she had to get her leg wrapped HAHAHA

I saw part of the second set.... Ayumi had the upper hand!

All baseline rallies.

She is now playing with the new Yonex racquet (Ana's).
