Re: ¤CharlDa¤ is back in his hometown: Bell Challenge Info!!!
Ok sorry for the lack of updates, I was down there enjoying the action.
Here are a few things I remember:
- Julia G played pretty well, first time I had seen her live and she was on today. Rebecca could just not do anything with Julia's serves, and while Marino's serve is amazing, it wasn't enough to keep her in the match. Julia should get through that decimated section.
- Marie-Eve and Laura did the comeback of the day. They were down 5-9 and then 9-10 in the supertiebreak and came back to win 12-10. Nice effort from them and its great to see Marie-Eve in the second round in doubles, good points for her.
- Jill started crying after her loss today. Not sure what happened there, maybe she knew it was her last time playing in Quebec City (she has played here since 98 or sthing). It was quite sad.
- Rebecca and Steph did decent in the first set, but Melinda and Nath just knew what to do when it counted. Take Steph's less hard shots and just whack them at Rebecca at the net. Rebecca has a great serve and just that makes her a good partner, she is solid from the ground, but she still looks a bit awkward volleying and moving around. Steph played a decent match but just lacked a bit of firepower in some key moments. Turning point: they broke right away in the second, had a 40-0 lead on Becca's serve, but ended up losing the game. They didn't win a game after that.
