The differences between surfaces are less marked for women than for men and besides, we're not supposed to be producing serve-and-volly-grass-court-specialists any more, so let's hope Anne and Bally can put this year down to experience and do better on the surface in future.
Well done to Anne and Julie for winning their 1st round matches and congratulations to Anne on becoming British No. 1.
Let's hope that stirs Elena into action!

as makes the angels weep.
