Mashabator's Sydney report thread.

Got here this morning and the courts were all wet, but the sun started the slowly come out, the players were all called and some even started warming up, but then it started raining again.

finally after about 30 mins play started again, im watching LDL vs Jovanovski. Both held at the start but from then on, Lourdez was just too consistent drawing errors from Bojana and getting every ball back and hitting lots of slices LDL won the first 6-1.
The slices seem to be troubling Bojana especially on the bh side.
Now in the second set Bojana has found her range, he sun has come out making the court faster for her but she is playing a little better.
Bojana took a 3-1 lead but LDL just broke back and its 6-1 *2-3.

Re: Mashabator's Sydney report thread.

from 5-3 Bojana really picked it up! she was hitting way more freely and was able to hit back slices and was hitting way more winners!

Pieter i watched some of marino and took some photos.
she's really tall and quite pretty, she has lots of pace on her shots and a big serve i was impressed!

And she was getting pumped. She was not having a great day out there today with lots of errors. The kid was pretty fiery he was getting really angry at himself.

Sure was I hoping to head there tomorrow if weather permitts then I'm going with friends on Sun, Mon and Tuesday depending on the weather (which ATM is looking shitty ). O well the bar at the Novotel its always a good alternative while waiting for the rain to stop. I really wish Maria would have come this year. Im pretty sure it was Sydney's only chance to get her to play. I think I will have to finally suck it up and head to Melbourne next year. I need to see her play live at least once (if she hasnt retired by then ).
