Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Hey guys, live from Charleston; I saw Liezel and Lisa today, and they looked great. Can't wait for the match tomorrow. Looks like I'm allowed to video there, so I'll try my best to post nice ones as soon as possible.
Crosscourtrally: are you coming? I'll be at the girls match tomorrow, probably wearing a US Fed Cup team t shirt, and probably in or around the girls box. Don't hesitate to come and see me.

Won 6-2 6-2. Got a little tight at the end, having been up 5-0 in the second. Great win

Jans-Ignacik/Kudryavtseva next.

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Hey guys,
So all went okay today. It was actually quite close at the beginning of the match, with Lisicki hitting very good shots from the baseline. But they managed to win almost all the no ads, and even after the rain, they kept going the right way. I will post a few videos whenever possible.
Tomorrow night then.... hope it wont be too late!

Have a blast Stefi! I wish I could head down, but I have too much work to do this week. Plus I have to spend Easter with the family on Sunday


Very nice scoreline for Lisa & Liz today

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Ok so that was sooo bad tonight: it started with lightenings, so they stopped playing. Then rain fell so heavily for around an hour, there was no way any match could resume tonight. Now schedule at 2pm tomorrow on Althea Gibson, but the forecast for tomorrow is even worse than today, so we'll see....

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Tough match today. Liezel started playing well and held quite easily with great serves, Lisa killing the points at the net when needed. Then Kudryavtseva serving, I think it went to no ad for that game, but they lost it. In the next few games, Liezel and Lisa were pushed back from the net a lot, especially by a very good Klaudia Jans, who hit a couple of perfect overheads, and a few winning cross court passing shots. Liezel was very pissed off when she lost her serve game. Then it was time to regroup, and Liezel and Lisa fought back, the tactics being: everything on Alla. There were a few good rallies, and few good point at the net (I'm always amazed by how well Lisa and Liezel play at the net, and how great their reflexes are!). To be honest, I don't remember exactly how they won the set, I guess by breaking Klaudia... Anyways, second set started very well, with a very good serving game by Liezel. I got scared a bit at 3-2 but then it all went smoothly.
Today was the day of the surprises, so actually I'm glad they did not lose that one. Mirza/Vesnina played okay but were outplayed by Lucie and especially Nastya at the end of the super tiebreak. Peschke/Srebotnik played terrible, like they were not there tonight. And Natalie and Vladka played some very good shots. That was very interesting to see that.
Ok, next summary tomorrow!

Cara Black - Liezel Huber - Mary Pierce

Chanelle Scheepers - Abigail Spears - Vladka Uhlirova - Mervana Jugic-Salkic - Francesca Schiavone -Tsvetana Pironkova - Lisa Raymond - Sophie Lefèvre...

Re: Lisa Raymond cheering thread

Lisa/Liezel vs. Pavlyuchenkova/Safarova is last on Centre today and probably an hour and half after Safarova's singles match.
