Re: $25,000 Port St. Lucie, FL (USA) 2013 | Jan 14 (Quali Draw)
Spent all of today at the 1st day of qualies and saw all or part of the following matches:
King v Castaneda
Eguchi v Brady
Eikeri v THaler
Thorpe v Kenin
Kermet v Muhammed
Robinson v Frilling
Safdar v Nemtsova
Of those I saw, I liked Safdar's game the best. She has all the shots, can do almost anything on the court. I'm really curious to see how far she can go.
I also heard a ****load of Jaksic v Marand, and all I can tell you is God help us all if Jaksic ever gets good enough to make it to TV. Her grunt makes Azapova sound benign. It's pretty obnoxious, sounding like a cat meowing loudly on nearly every groundstroke....
"MIA! MIA! MIA! MIA!...."
You could hear her three miles away, I'm pretty sure.
I saw Luke Jensen today--he was there coaching some of his players, as was Brian Gottfried. Talked with Luke for few minutes and got some pics.
Tesoro Club is absolutely first rate. A very exclusive club and a beautiful place to play tennis. The weather was perfect (80, mostly sunny and breezy) and though the prices were a little high, everything was perfect. It was a really fun day!
Will upload some pics and video soon.
