Pattaya QF: Tanasugarn d. Chakvetadze 6-1 6-4

Well done Tamarine. You played really well - hitting the ball deep and getting some good serves in. She constantly stayed agressive and went for the lines, making a good percentage of those shots except for that little second set blip.

Chakvetadze played mostly just a hideous match, but when she saved match points at 5-2 and pulled back two games she looked to be playing a couple of steps above heinous.

ugh.

Tammy

but Anna well I guess two matches in a row was a start

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.

Re: Pattaya QF: Tanasugarn d. Chakvetadze 6-1 6-4

I got up at 4:30 AM to watch this crap.

The first set was simply awful - Chakvetadze played horribly, and Tanasugarn didn't have to do a whole lot to win it quite comfortably.

The second set was a marked improvement - that is to say, the quality went from abysmal to mostly mediocre. Chakvetadze was playing much better in patches, but was still much too inconsistent. At least she made her opponent play, and Tanasugarn was pretty solid overall, despite some nerves toward the end.

The blackness that falls is coming to stay

Yup. Back to back wins in a WTA main draw is a definately improvement for Anna even if today wasn't great.

As for Tammy, it is wonderful to see her playing close to her best tennis. She is serving unusually well and not only was she hitting very flat as usual but she was hitting with very good pace too. Excellent chance now for Tammy to make the Pattaya final for only the 2nd time and 1st since 1996 in, quite remarkably, her 17th time playing this, her home event.

Take the title Tammy Definitely one of the most likeable veterans on the tour.

And if your life were gold, how long do you think you'd stay living?
