Re: $50,000 Yakima, WA (USA) 2013 | Jul 08 (Quali Draw)

Melichar is a bit of a diva! Screaming at lines people and chair ump, grunting super loudly, really dramatic. Felt bad for Elie after this tough loss.

Re: $50,000 Yakima, WA (USA) 2013 | Jul 08 (Draws)

So the funniest and coolest thing that happened was I was waiting for the Stevenson and Harman match to start and I wanted to make sure I sat near her mother. So I'm sitting on a bench and her mothers comes out with a volunteer carrying a special chair just for her and sets it down in the shade about 4 feet from me so I'm like sweet! So Alex is on the court and her mother is getting herself situated and realizes she still has Alex's bananas with her. So she gets up and thinks about bringing the bananas onto the court herself but then sees me sitting there and says "you have fresh legs, can you bring these to Alexandra for me?" I keep my cool and say ya sure so I walk down the hill and onto the court, past the umpire standing at the net and over to Alex and say "you're mom wanted me to give these to you". She says thank you and I walk off the court and her mom says thanks to me and smiles at me. Thought that was a pretty wild moment.
Then the drama started

So first of all during the first set, I guess Alex was a little annoyed that people on the practice courts were being too loud and also that people up on the walkway near by we're talking to loud and she complained a little to the umpire and her mom saw this and heard this so she turned to the people standing beside her that were talking and said "do you think you could be quiet, there is a tennis match going on here." Then she dug out her cell phone and called the tournament director who was only a 20 second walk away, the tournament director came over and her mother explained that the people on the practice courts were bing too loud and asked if she cold go tell them to be quiet, the director said yes and walked over there though it made no difference at all.
Anyway so later in the match Harman was complaining about something to do with the mother calling things out loud before serves and such and Alex's mom said in a loud voice "im quite sure that's not the reason you suck". Then a couple games later Harman actually shouted shut up to her mom, and after complaing more to the umpire, her mom stated that this girl was "better suited to a mental hospital than a tennis court"
After Alex won her mom immediately got up and walked over o Harmans coach and got in his face about his student being disrespectful and they got into a shouting match.
That was the drama from that match, I'll post pics win I can.
