Friday Report

Pin d. Karatantcheva 62 46 61

WOW!!! The wall wins again. She is just so fast that nothing gets by her and as a result it forced Sesil to go for too much in the 1st set and she lost it easily. Camille took a 62 40 lead and she lost it because of two things: nerves and Sesil started to play her game as well. Sesil started moonballing, and keeping the ball in play and it worked perfectly. But the problem was that the rallies lasted so long that once the 3rd set started, she began to get tired and go for more - that resulted in more unforced errors and Camille won easily. Well done

Granville d. Lee-Waters 57 61 64

Lindsay is the strongest girl in the tournament but she wasn't consistent enough today. Lindsay was leading 4:1, hitting amazing winners. Then she started playing sloppy and Laura took a 5:4 lead. Then, Lindsay played amazing again and took a 7:5 lead. Then for the next 5 games, she played so bad and Laura took a 5:0 lead in the 2nd set. The 3rd set was really close - just one service break at 4:4, which was enough to give Laura the win.

Jidkova d. Grande 36 61 63

Alina did what Sesil should have done. Rita's slice and moonball game worked perfectly in the 1st set, but Alina started playing the same way as well and being more patient, which caused Rita to make unforced errors. The match lasted so long. At the end of the match, Alina was apparently vomiting in the bathroom. She was crying as well - probably just exhausted.

Vaidisova d. Sequera 64 61

I couldn't stay and watch the match, but it looked like Nicole played well, and Milagros didn't.

Nicole is unbelievable, taking out Milagros in straight sets on hardcourt.
Alina is exhausted!? Nicole will have more of a chance to eat her then.
It'll probably be Laura vs Nicole final, i'll probably attend. Let's hope it happens.
