Izzy ?? which baseball caps ??? there were lots in caps
Today Nastya started of slow on serve anyway even though she broke for 1-0.
she played a bad set but then began to hit deeper and harder in set 2, she had her left finger taped for blisters in set 2 (at *3-2)
Served better in sets 2/3, she had to fight and save BP at 2-2 in 3rd and after that it was plain sailing.
Most of the players that weren't playing were watching, and all hoping Nastya would win
Alinka, Magui, Asagoe, Ai, Els, Elena Tatarkova, some coaches of theirs.
Nastya got a really good round of cheers after she win
Nastya needs to beat Maggie tomorrow and on grass it favors her with her speed and movement.
then we can look to whatever can unfold on Saturday.
In the Jul/Aug Tennis magazine, they have a section called On The Move and they featured Nastya. It says....
"Fans could be forgiven for having had high expectations for Anastasia Myskina. After all, in 1999, just three days after her 18th birthday, the youngster from Moscow won the title in Palermo in only her second Sanex WTA event. Though she has yet to win a second singles title, she finally seems to be making her move after two years of hovering near the Top 50. This year she's advanced to the quarterfinals in four events and taken sets from Jennifer Capriati and Venus Williams. Along the way she also reached a career-high No. 29 in April."
She is wearing a blue top/blue skirt outfit in the pic.
Ironically, it has an article on Alex Stevenson on fitness and health.
