Re: The Klara "Kookie" Zakopalova Cheering Thread

Great result against Johansson, but a completely different picture against Arn. Winning only 1 game is baaaaaad.

Hopefully I'll get to see her play in person in 10 days.

No.

Re: The Klara "Kookie" Zakopalova Cheering Thread

Looks like Klara had to abandon her match and dblz partner (Lucie) in rainy Austria to head to Portoroz . No sign of their score and yet their prospective opponents are already playing the next round . So much for the atmosphere in Bad Gas Stein (AUT) .

Re: The Klara "Kookie" Zakopalova Cheering Thread

According to livescore.com they lost 6-2 6-0.
Apparently there is no live scoring on one or some of the courts. Anyway I think it's a joke of a tournament anyway, didn't they have weather issues last year too?

No.

Re: The Klara "Kookie" Zakopalova Cheering Thread

I was there.
I got to the court right as Kookie broke for 4-1. She then lost the next three games, but regrouped to win the set 6-4. There was some ferocious hitting from both players, but Kookie was the one who dictated the play more and played with more desire, sure she was grumpy, but she showed will, fist pumped at times as well. Suarez Navarro seemed like a robot. In the second set Kookie took a 4-2 lead, but it ended up 4 all again, before she again won the last two games of the set to win 6-4, 6-4. As she was walking to her chair in the end I was standing and clapping, she smiled at me and I said that it's a nice win. I also congratulated her husband. Outside the court I got a pic of them together and she thanked me for cheering for her and I wished her luck in the second round against Martic. She was nice as always.

Here's the pic of her with her husband:

Re: The Klara "Kookie" Zakopalova Cheering Thread

A heartbreaker. Klara had a mp at 5-2 but Martic served an ace and it went down there more or less, tons of UEs from then on and Martic's big serving were too much. There was one great game to go 6-5 up that gave me some hope, but it was only a slight flash and it went back to bad then. I talked shortly with her husband after the match and obviously he was disappointed as well, losing from 5-2, but that's tennis he said. He confirmed Klara is going to the Olympics for the second time after Athens so that's at least a nice experience to look forward to.
But my interest in this week's tourney took a major blow, totally gutted now to have seen that in person.

No.
