Re: $50,000 Indian Harbour Beach, FL (USA) 2012 | Apr 30 (Quali Draw)

My notes from today:

Alvez v Costa Melgar: Alvez won the first set 6-1, Costa Megar turned it around early in set two racing to a 3-0 lead, before Alvez righted her ship and knotted it at 3-all. That's when I left to see what was going on elsewhere. When I returned, it was over, but Alvez was about ready to start practicing on the adjacent court. This match was tedious, a typical clay court match, filled with long points, tons of deuces, lots of line checking, and almost no aggrssion or dictating play. Alvez won in 2 sets.

Crawford v Tomova: This was the next match on court 6, and Tomova was sitting next to me waiting for the Alvez-Costa Melgar match to finish, with her Mom, I guess. When it started, Crawford held and broke for 2-0, then Tomova broke and somehow held from 0-40 for 2-all, before Crawford reeled off four in a row to take the set. At 6-2 2-0 it was obvious she was not only the bigger hitter but far more consistent. Tomova was pressing, but a lot of that was just because Crawford had a bigger game and was forcing her into too many risky shots. During the second set, Alexandra Stevenson showed up to practice on the next court. Crawford won 6-2 6-2.

Hardebeck and Kalhorn: Didn't see much of this. I think there must have been a retirement. Kalhorn looked pretty wild in what I did see, spraying forehands, though she managed to hold for 1-2 from 0-40. Neither player possessed much in terms of power. I went to check on the status of other matches, and before I knew it, the 4th match on this court, Jeuking v Ramirez, had started, that's why I thought there must have been a retirement.

Stevenson v Robinson: "Sexy" Lexy looked really good today. She served well, played under control, was never threatened by Nicole Robinson, and won by an embarassingly easy scoreline of 6-0, 6-1. It wasn't really even that close. Overheard a lady sitting near me in the stands saying she was the one housing Alexandra for the week, and talking about what a nice girl she is. Nice to hear. Even now, at 31, there's something about her, some kind of "star" quality that still lingers. Yes, faded, but it's funny how things don't work out. You wonder "what if"...she definitely had, and still has talent. Her 1-h backhand is gorgeous.

Hsu v Will: Saw the last game of this, and got a couple of action shots of Hsu serving. Can't say much about it other than that she won, but I guess it was on livestream, so...

Li v Bensimon: Probably one Bensimon would like to forget. She's a local player, I think. Maybe even HS? Li was just too much for her. More consistent, more controlled. Bensimon looked nervous, was looking to her coach/mom after most points as if to say "WTF?" I think it was just too big an occasion for her.

Solovieva vs. Zhao: pics from warm up only. Started to pour down rain right as the match started, so I split.
