Tuesday and Wednesday Report

TUESDAY

I arrove to the tourney and go to see Conchi trainning. Conchi was playing with Patricia Tarabini and Jeorgina Cravero (a young aregentinian). One of my friends give to Conchi a Real MAdrid T-shirt signed by Zinedine Zidane, Luis Figo, RAul, Roberto Carlos, Hierro... Conchi was in other world seeing the t-shirt
Conchi finish the practice and Pato began to play with Vis who arrove some minutes ago. We began to speak with COnchi and we made some photos wiht her.

We go to see MAgui playing. She is playing very good and win easily.
I go to see Gagliardi who won Molik so easy, playing very good. Van Harpen is making a good job with her.

While i was there, Vivi was loosing. I was watching Paola and Cravero playing doubles against Neffa de los Rios/Marrero. Rossana´s child, was running around courts and give her dad and family some drinks. She gave me two Cokes!! I needed it cause it was so hot.

Then i wento to see Tulyaganoa trainning. Later i wento to see Castaño against Widjaja. Widjaja was hitting good but Castaño was running a lot in court. Finally, Widjaja won, but without a good game.

I went to WC and i met with Dana (Conchi´s fitness trainer). I spoke with her about her name cause i didnt know how it was. She laught ed with my question and we were speaking some minutes more. She went cause Conchi was ready to play, and i went to center court with her. There I saw Conchi´s family, her parents and her bother with his son. Conchi began to play with Cara, but i felt Conchi was going to lose.
Conchi to beat Cara has to fight a lot and be in court 2 hours or more. She doesnt need to make it in a Tier III one week before RG, so she doesnt fight a lot. She is very clever doing it. Cara was a wall in court, and won easy. Im COnchi fan, but i didnt feel sad, i understand what she did.

After match, when everybody was gone, we go with COnchi´s family and we began to speak with her about the match, about them, and about RG. I played football with Conchi´s nephew with a gigant tennis ball. Suddenly, Conchi appears with Dana, and come with us and start to speak with the family. We made some photos with COnchi, and we desire good luck to her in RG.



WEDNESDAY!!!

I arrove there, and went to see Paola with Zuluaga. They were playing so hard, with long points and suffering in court. We were seeing the match with Vivi´s mother and speaking with her. When Paola won, we went to see Alexandra ion central court. Later on Chanda won 7/6 6/1.
Alex was playing so bad, and Gagliardi so good. She is playing great, making run Alex, and hitting hard the ball. Alex wasnt in her best tennis, and she was beat easily.

Then i went to see Paola in her doubles match. She and Cravero won in 30 minutes 6/0 6/0 . In other court were Schett and Koukalova. It was a great match, both players hitting hard the ball, good rallies, and good points. Schett could won in two sets, but she went out from match in middle 2nd set. When this match was in 3rd set, Alex and Vis began to play with Huber and Craybas. Alex, every ball she hit, every ball she failed. So bad!!!! Incredible. She and Vis lost the match.

When Schett won, started Iroda with Amy Frazier. Iroda is making unforced errors but she could won n two sets, without any problems.

Then, i went to see Black winnign Widjaja. Cara was (again ) a wall in court and Widjaja was hitting hard every ball, but she couldnt with the Cara "Wall".

It was my last day on the tourny cause i have to study but next year i will go again.

ANYWAY, CONCHI RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cara returns every single ball, run around court and doesnt make errors. She always put the ball in lines, and with backhand slice controls the ball and doesnt make unforced error, getting crazy her oponent.

This is her way
