Svensson vs. Perry...both girls were serving well. Asa got an early break and Perry broke right back and then they were on serve for the rest of the set. Asa really dictated the points, perry's backhand was not its usual , so she started mixing it up more. in the TB I took some notes once I realized how close it was gonna be lol..
Asa started up 5-3 in the TB
7-7 Asa DF
10-9 Asa had her only set point (i believe) up to that point
11-11 Asa hit really agressive shots this point, 2 consecutive shots landed on the baseline and the next shot was a beautiful backhand winner down the line changing the direction of the ball
12-11 Asa - Asa hit a huge serve but lost the pt lol
12-12 Asa huge backhand return
13-12 Asa missed a backhand wide after shenay sliced a couple lose backhands to her
On the last 2 pts of the TB perry made errors after asa pinned her to the baseline w/ deep groundies
Brandi vs. Gullickson - Carley almost got it going down 0-2 in the second, it was about a 7 minute game and she hit a few nice shots, came in to finish a couple of points off..but after losing that game it was back to the same...brandi did play great, but didn't have to do much..just keep th eball in play and move carley around
Snyder vs. Salerni - Tara never really seemed in this match
Here are some of the exciting moments you can expect from a Snyder match:
Game 1 - smacked ball against backdrop
Game 2 - smacked ball again this time about 2 feet from the linesman who jumped out of the way; asked the linesman if he would "just call the line"
Game 11 - bitched about a call; must have sworn on the changeover coz the second she walked towardes the chair ump he gave her a warning; she continued to bitch during the whole changeover
Game 12 - Salerni hita ball clearly out and tara looked at the chair umpire and sarcastically asked "is that out" lol
After set 1 she was yelling at the ump during the break and threw the top to her water
Game 6 Set 2 - smash racket and slammed ball
Game 8 Set 2 - smash racket against knee, which looked like it started to bleed; screamed; Tara hit a ball close to the sideline, which salerni questioned..after she hit it she looked at salerni and held her hands up about 6 inches away from each other and says it was "way in"
Game 9 Set 2 - looks at crowd and says "if i lose to her i am the worst player in womens tennis"; also asks the crowd why 2 sides (bh and fh) cant work at the sam etime - is that mandatory in tennis?
didnt shake the umpires hand after the match
tara so much too bad she had to lose
her brother was not there coaching as he always is
Tara was also nice to the fans after the match, smiling and saying thanks to the guy who told her good match
Sofia vs. Voskoboeva - I hate galina..she was a bitch to the ball girl twice who did not throw her the ball quick enough; questionned a few cals by throwing her racket down and putting her hands on her hips and just starting..so annoying,k and SO ugly too...too bad for sofia she had to lose to her..sofia was not playing too badly, but vosko just wore her down in the pts and moved her enough to eventually finish it w/ a winner, and she did mix it up a lot with moonballs
sharapova vs. martinez - just caught the end but it looked like conchita hung with her decently despite the score, but maria just had the bigger finishing shot and was able to finish off the points
