US Open Qualfying Day 2 Report and Pictures

Putting up today's pictures will take awhile. I will start with Jackson and Kapros. Thought Jackson would give Kapros more trouble than she did. Jackson just was not able to put the ball away. Seemed as though she was playing defense the whole time. She is very short which is a problem. Kapros didn't impress me. Oddly, she would periodically push a serve in instead of hitting it hard. She did the same with groundstrokes. Don't know the purpose.

Groenefeld v. Rodionova

This was a fun match. Rodionova kept screeching and whining about calls. At one point, she was upset and was going to hit the ball against the wall. There was a ballboy standing there, so she stopped momentarily. Then, she hit it anyway. Just missed the ballboy. Groenefeld was too much for Rodionova. Rodionova is a cute, smallish girl. Groenefeld is large and had too much power for her. Groenefeld could probably be even better if she lost some weight. I think she flattened out her shots since last year, but I am not sure.

Dulko v. Ahl

Dulko is a very slight, pretty woman with a solid all around game. She moves fluidly and is extremely feminine. A pleasure to watch. I didn't think she would have trouble with Ahl, but she lost the 2nd set. Dulko came back strong in the third. Being only around 5'5", Dulko may have trouble breaking into the top 20. She doesn't have a ton of power, but should be able to get the job done against the top 50-100 players in the world in the future.

Tu v. Geznenge

Just a pic. This match took forever. I think it was mentioned in another thread. Every time I came back to see if it was over, it was the same set!! You can see the difference in size between the two players in the picture.

There are always a few people standing around the court. But some matches do not get a lot of fans.
