Karo will play IW qualies. Kristyna looks to be seeded #2 at Fort Walden Beach.

as you mentioned her movement, that's what I was hoping that she could improve this year, but so far, still looks the same

but anyway, nice experience for her against an in-form top 5 player who can beat almost anyone in the tour right now

what I could see at a few tournaments in the Czech Rep. their game is very similar to each other in my opinion... I never notice the movement because itīs a detail (of course with big influence on your game) and you rather notice groundstrokes but Iīv heard many time on a czech tennis forum their movement is still pretty poor and obviously they should work on it a lot and improve it... I know itīs kind of hard work with their height but many players have managed to improved so if both girls want to get much higher in the rankings they will have to work on the movement a lot...

dadouch also mentioned the lack of intensity in their game, on the other hand, my friend (who was watching Karo's match for the first time), told me the only thing she noticed is the pure calmness of this girl on the court, throughout the match, and just played her tennis, regardless of the situation, which almost never changed, recalling their reaction after winning GS junior titles, amazing

maybe one day they will decide to work hard on their footwork, we can not foresee it, but on the other hand, again, if they can make this decision, it'll be just a matter of time before they make a real breakthrough

That's how Benesova used to be a few yrs back. Perhaps their role model?!

they throw frequently and WELL too, Karo once did it 3 times in a row, the racket bounced just right so she can grab and repeat the motion

IW q-draw: Karo plays #18 Edina Gallovits-Hall. These two have never played each other before.
