They had a lot of fun in doubles. Julia's blog entry from Thursday:
"Well our doubles was big fun today as we had some funny situations ;-) One example was Jill running to a drop volley and I thought she might not get it, so I screamed at her COME ON JILLY and she got it. We won the point! She was laughing for the next four points. I'm surprised she didn't laugh while she was running because I screamed pretty loud ;-) We had fun and played very solid.
My routines around my doubles matches are a little bit different than for singles. I do less speedy things before a doubles match. Most times when I only have a doubles match to play that day, I do a workout afterwards with my fitness coach, and we do my cool down there. When I'm playing singles, I make my cool down by running and stretching only. So that's the difference...
We didn't see our opponents' first round match, as they were playing on a different site, and we also still had to play our first round so didn't check our possible second round. I don't know much about them... we'll just go out there and play our game, and hopefully have a lot of fun like we did today! ;-)
Tonight we went to the same place we've been going to almost the whole week. It's a nice Italian place close to the hotel, and a lot of players go there as well. It's pretty good. It makes you feel a little bit like you're in the players lounge ;-) I had a little macchiato at the bar with my team and friends here and then came back to write my blog, like every day, which I am really enjoying by the way!"
