Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

I hope they'll play together again.

Meanwhile Akgul drew Kuzzy for her first match at Wimbledon ... I really, really wish I could watch this because I think it could be a very fun match. Hope we get some reports here! (hint, hint Elisse )

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Ok, I owe you all some reports from the recent tournaments...Madrid, RG, Eastbourne....

(These are not gonna be really detailed reports cause I've got so much to write about)

Madrid....saw all of Akgul's matches here!! Really she played some incredible tennis that week...first match was against Vinci on Court 3...our girl really controlled the whole match, just went out there and played as if she had nothing to lose. Serving confidently, that beautiful slice backhand, great volleys..took her time to build the points then go in with a killer shot...it was great to see her play that way!! Next up Morita....Akgul totally demolished her, great confident serving...Morita really didn't have any weapons to hurt Akgul's game..an awesome performance and the whole match was over pretty quick. After that...doubles with Hsieh on Court 2...they started very confidently and took the first set pretty easily. Safina/Szavay woke up in the 2nd and started to get their game together...don't really think Akgul and Hsieh make a good team, Akgul is the more talented player (IMHO) the motivator and the personality of the team..Hsieh doesn't show much emotion on the court, she was having a bit of an off day and they don't have that special magic that makes a great team. Anyway, from the 2nd Dina/Agnes were in full control and ended up winning Last match was singles against Kleybanova - still say that Akgul has the game to beat her!! This match was played in very different conditions..it was on a noisey outside court...cold, windy...not great. Alisa is like playing against a wall...she manages to get everything back....Akgul just didn't have luck on her side that day, she tried everything...but Kleybanova just had an answer for everything...dropshots, she made impossible passing shots out of them, she managed to return even the best serve...Alisa was just too good on the day. (Akgul worked really hard that week...I went to a few practise sessions...including one at 9:30am in the pouring rain )

Re: AKGUL! The Gentle Giant's Wildly Enthusiastic Fan Zone

Roland Garros....once again saw all of Akgul's matches here, except the last Mixed doubles. R1 was against Martinez Sanchez on Court 3...what a match!!! Akgul lost her first service game...didn't look nothing wrong with MJMS....was 2-1, then MJMS called for the trainer which was a surprise to everyone, she was crying, doctor was called...problem with her neck etc... Anyway, she came out to play again....only problem was with her serve, no problems with any other part of her game. Akgul on the other hand was awesome...she played a truly incredible match...beautiful drop shots, awesome slice BH, great serving, amazing angled volleys at the net....she played all the shots so well!! MJMS looked pretty stiff when she was serving...but she didn't have any problems with any other part of her game. She then started serving underarm which was a total shock to everyone...including Akgul, no one expected that!! (Personally, she didn't look injured enough to serve underarm...I definately think it was done for gamesmanship, everyone at the match seemed to think that also) Akgul didn't let it effect her though, she stayed positive, motivated and full of belief!! Honestly, out of all the matches I've ever seen her play (and it's a lot ) this was one of my top 3 favorite matches of hers...she was incredible!!!

R2 against Larsson...not much to say about this match, another awesome performance from Akgul, Larsson returns everything...a tough match but Akgul just worked really hard, played her own game and got the win. R3 against Scheepers...Akgul really didn't get a chance to get into the match...Chani controlled from the start, Akgul has the game to beat her (and has beaten her before) but Chani just had the luck on her side, took her chances and won. Women's doubles with Voskoboeva was not so good...it rained a few times during the match...Akgul was motivated, but poor Galina just was having a bad day at the office, every shot she tried just didn't work....netted all volleys she tried, serve was off..and the other two was just too good.

Ok, onto the Mixed This was a total surprise, think they only got in cause other teams withdrew...I should have been going home on the day they were playing but I wanted to see the match so much I changed my flight and stayed extra 48 hrs Akgul and Aisam make a great team!!!! They have that special magic when they play together (same as Eastbourne last year with Sugiyama) They were just so fun to watch, crazy shots at the net from Akgul..great serving from both, lots of laughing...what a team!!! Really want them to partner eachother again..they were so entertaining and fun to watch At the end of the match they just looked so happy, Aisam was thrilled with the win and it was one of those matches that just makes you smile when you think of it....well worth changing my flight for!!

That's the end of my little reports for now - will try and write a bit about Eastbourne later, still got so much to do before Wimbledon starts
