My day at the Medibank INt.
Today i went to the tournament and the first match i saw was petrova V peng. Peng really suprised me she was over powering Petrova from the baseline she hits a lot flatter then Petrova who hits with a lot of top spin. She was dictating most of the play and that really angered Nadia. She comprehensively outplayered her from the baseline with more power the same she did to Myskina.
Then i saw Patty v Elena. Patty really suprised me On TV her shots look quite slow but in many of the rallied she was able to stick with Elena shot for shot. It was a very high quality match with a lot of great shot making. Elena had some terrific power drives that can really only be experinced live. Also Elena's serve was a lot better than i expected. Very consistent she has really improved it it is not the huge weakness it was last year.
Alicia v Fabiola was not much of a match the crowd were behind Alicia all the way and she really played well and the serve as ussual was on fire and she was definatly the Dominant player. Fabiola really has nothing in her weaponry to hurt top player. Her serve is Pretty good though it saved her a few times. Overall Alicia really has shown me improvement with each match and she plays like a top player. She is on track for the top ten from what i saw today,
