Night Session Report
I got to the courts early so i walked to the practice courts, saw tina pisnik hittnig backhands, missed a lot.
Davenport def Dokic 6/2 6/1
Just an all out slug fest without ralles but blazing winners, very cool, Davenport did everything better, and her serve was remarkable. just so overpowering and long and slender and it was just awesome. Dokic is beautiful and hits hard but couldnt get a backhand in for her life so davenport rolled easy 2 and 1 after going down a break in the 2nd dokic tanked. Lindsay played well though. took some shots of serves then ran out of film
Wanted to get a break between matches so we went for a wlak and saw Nadia Petrova goofing around at the sun glasses srtand trying them on and shaking her head and stuff, she was nice, i asked for her autograph she said yea and signed, small hands haha. back to the stadium
Pistolesi def Zvonareva
Totally one sided up to 6-0 5-1, i mean zovonareva domintaed with huge winners and spectaular droppers even pistolse couldnt run down, i mean it was a clinic and then somthing just happned. she flipped, like she couldnt focus, the raqwucets were flying and everything was bad, she yelled at the crowd, and we alll yelled and whistled back and pised her off as much as possible, i mean the match was a joke, people were betti gon if anna would win a game and she came back to wnin. in the 3rd vera cramped up alot and cried and threw her raqcuet and justy had a mentla breakdown, sad. matches over now my unreal night at the hotel!
So we arrive at the hotle after tennis, i see Maggie Maleeva (my 2nd fav player in the world get dropped off behind me) so i immediatly got my pic with her, then my dad and seb, went for food but i wanted to go to the room so i shared and elavator with mags and talkesd and saidshe had to get revenge on magui (she didnt!!!) and thaty id be there tomorrow adn she asked my name and stuff so sweet, then a french group borded the elavator, Amelie Mauresmo (fav player) and Nathalie Dechy woth 2 guys , so it was me Amelie, Maggie and Nathalie all in the aame elavaqtor speaking in French together, incredible, i got my pic with amelie taken by nat and then mine with nat taken by Amelie, incredible, such sweet girls.
