Almost Live From the Texas Open with miffedmax

Loaded up the lad and headed out into the face-melting heat today to watch some tennis in lovely Grapevine, Texas today.

We got and wandered around for a little bit and practically ran into Sabine Lisicki as she left a practice court. She is ADORABLE. She looks much more petite and girly in person and she smiled and gave a little wave to everyone as she was hustled off to the lockerroom by a phalanx of escorts. I don't think it registered on anyone to ask her for a pic or autograph. I of course forgot my phone camera and the youth was useless with his.

Saw about two second of Rezai/Bondarenko, so I couldn't say much except that Rezai appeared to bashing the everloving crap out of the ball.

When that match ended we went to another practice court and saw my beloved Wickmayer. She's a big gal. Well-proportioned, but big. When Halep and Johanna Larsson came out to warm up for that match they looked like a couple of high school kids.

We ended up watching this match--WHY NO LOVE FOR LARSSON IN GM? She is cute as the proverbial bug's bottom! The match was a classic confrontation between a women with one weapon--Larsson--and a woman with, well, no weapons whatsoever. Larsson has a pretty decent forehand. My son has a better backhand. I mean she just sprays it around like a firehose. Halep, on the other hand, couldn't do much of anything. Larsson pretty strolled to a 6-3, 6-2 win. The big surprise for me is that Larsson has a temper. Gave herself a good chewing out at 3-3 and I guess it worked.

Next up we watched Dulko and BoJo. Basically, this was one of those matches where you wonder why Dulko isn't Top 10 all the time. She was on fire. In the first set, her serve was pretty much unreturnable and she was just smacking the ball, volleying beautifully. Second set was much closer, but Dulko was just too good. Dulko was charming after the match, signing autographs and posing for pics right up to the dressing room door. What a sweetheart!

Caught a little bit of Gorges/Cornet. Also some of the doubles match with Schweepers/Oudin against some pair I'd never heard of. Had to leave because tomorrow is the first day of school.

I don't have tickets again until the quarterfinals.

*Subscribes* Can't wait to hear the quarterfinal round up, Max!

I wish school wasn't starting tomorrow so I could have gone a couple of days to this tournament.

Subcribes.

Oh Max, serious yet question. Why are Vania and Vee in the LOB when they're not, you know, blonde?

These are things I wonder about.

but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Re: Almost Live From the Texas Open with miffedmax

Hey!

How did Arav do!? She won so good bashing right? Is she the hardest hitter than you have ever seen? Did she look happy? How was she playing?

And what about Jules? How much did you see? Did she play well from what you saw? Big forehand today?

Thanks!!

and oh yeah, Sabs is super nice and really attractive

I poured some purple prose about Johanna Jenny's ponytail when she was here. I also think her game is very unusual and interesting, if limited. I mentioned her in the chat thread among the players I thought might appeal to you, in her case on account of blondeness.

Not surprised that you didn't make non-blonde Julinha a priority.

Re: Almost Live From the Texas Open with miffedmax

I'll try to answer the questions....

What little I saw of Rezai she looked good. I think she looks fitter than she has in the past few months and I thought she was moving better. I don't follow her as closely as I do some other players, but last time I saw her on TV she looked a little heavier. That could have been the TV camera, but she looked several steps fitter compared to my last sighting. She could be dangerous.

I wish I'd watched more of Julia and Alize. Julia's forehand was inconsistent, but when it's on, it is amazing. I also have to do a mea culpa here. I have said in the past I didn't understand what the fuss was about. But she's gorgeous and she has got game, if she can play consistently. But I still like Larsson better--who is of course in the LOB Reserves and has been for quite some time.

Herbert, a couple of the ball girls had bangs. Have to ask my son what he thought of them as they were more in his age range.

Didn't see Peng, much as I would have liked to. I saw some other players I didn't recognize or whose names didn't click, some of them here for the dubz.

And if anyone is in Dallas and attends when I can't, please feel free to post your thoughts.

Re: Almost Live From the Texas Open with miffedmax

Okay. Serve was weak, and I got the impression she and Scheepers hadn't played together much. But they ended up winning fairly convincingly.

Oh, if you care, the other players I couldn't place, but a glance at the web site refreshed my memory: Begu sat behind us during the Dulko/Bo Jo match with a man I assume was her coach, though he was of the age he could have been her dad, I just didn't get a father/daughter vibe, but since they were speaking Roumanian I couldn't say for sure. I saw Greta Arn in the hotel lobby in her civilian clothes and Irina Falconi was wandering around the grounds catching some matches after her loss.

The venue is okay, you sit really close to the courts but the wooden benches abuse your ass. The USTA events I go to have better seats!

Anyway, still looking forward to the quarters.

Lena's bangs.
