I am in Barcelona and even though I didnt see their match, I watched a bit of a practice match against Zalameda and Rosolska and Ipek didnt seem to have that much confidence at all (you know things arent going well when Poutchek looks the happier player on court!) However, she seemed to be volleying much better compared to her match at the Paris Indoors, when she didn´t make any volleys but I don´t know if she was able to transfer this form into the match (Zalameda and Rosolska certainly didn´t!)
I will post some pictures when I get back.

"I will now call her LP Hlavackova - low percentage Hlavackova. I hope she doesn't drive a car the way she drives her groundstrokes!"
