Qualifying Day 1 Report and Pictures
I will be adding to this over thread the next hour or so. Just got back from the Open. I ran around the courts a lot, so I caught bits of a bunch of matches. I did watch that Baker v. Lucic match. Lucic dominated the first set, but Baker seemed to be in better shape. It is clear that Baker has lost a lot of weight and is in very good shape. However, she is still lacking in the quickness dept. Lucic has good strokes, but does not move well. Baker really gritted this one out. Lots of people waited for her autograph after the match. And someone interviewed her. I have many pics of Baker.
