Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

Well wat a day...

When i first got there i saw Boj walking towards the court and i walked next to her. Although at the time i had no idea who it was. She went to watch the 1st match and left at end of first set.

It was bloody hot, but thankfully there was a bit of cloud cover and wind. The Arina vs Jess match was a mixed game, good shots with lots of errors and tantrums.

I think Adrian Franklin wanted to have a chat with one of the coaches, but he got rejected

When Barty came to court she told "yeah im next" to somebody, her voice was really strong and loud. Boj played an incredible match, she was very consistent, serving well and putting pressure on Ash with deep shots. Ash weathered it in the first set, but Boj just kept the intensity up in the next sets. Ash was very frustrated that Boj kept hitting balls very deep and not misding. But Ash served very well today, 3 aces in a row at one point. She had her chances in the 3rd set but got tight missed those shots probably because of the pressure Boj had made in the whole match.

This was most emotion i seen from Ash, she hit her racquet on the ground a couple of times, hit the net when she got broken and threw it into the sky when she missed her chance in that last game. Boj on the other hand looked on a mission, she kept taking her time at the back board like Sharapova does.

Crowd really supported Ash more, when she hit a good shots there was lots of claps, but they started to appreciate Bojs effort later in the match.


There was 2 really hot tennis players that sat near me to watch the match too.

Re: December Showdown & 2013 Summer Events

I'm really surprised with Priscilla, considering she had some ordinary results when she dabbled on the Pro Circuit a couple of months ago. Where did thise come from??

Can't believe she was born in 1998 and mixing it with these girls (even last week in the 18s!). She's even younger than Bains and doing so much better.

I think it's safe to say she's left Tomic behind?
