Ok today, was a bit strange. First match was Kerber vs. Gehrlein. I don't know what happend at 5-0 and 30-0 with Kerber. From that point on, she was not able to do something right. Without a doubt, Gehrlein shots were getting better, but just one game out of 14 after a 5-0 lead was awful for Angelique. She hit many errors in the second set, but it was just, strange.
Ok after this match I did my usual round around the courts and watched a bit of Sharapowa at Center Court, she does train the whole day, doesn't she? But today she was not so pissed off like yesterday when she just wanted to kick her coaches asses and go to bed or elsewhere.
Next match on Court 1 was Peschke vs. Kandarr and this was a very clear thing - Peschke was never really in trouble, she was even able to loose her service twice in first sentence. Jana was not playin really bad - but Peschke was just to good, to precisive, e.g. using stops when it was exactly the right moment. I don't know what she is doing in Qualifing. But nice to see Jana again, and for me the first time live - she is very georgeus and a quiet nice person. Once today she was helping the ball kids, like all the time, but then she hits on of the officals with her stroke and felt so sorry, it was really funny, Jana crying her heart out "Attention, Attention - SORRY!"
Next match was Tu vs. Müller and Müller was dominating the match in the first sets, Tu was very pissed off because of some decisions of the referee. I left this match because I was a bit bored of Court 1 and wanted to see what happens on the other courts. So I watched a bit of Haynes vs. Obziler, but I don't know really how they played, because I wasn't so interested, so I took some pictures and then watched Mary Pierce on the court nearby. She was training with some guy and looked quiet good. But this was boring too so I went into Center Court and found Nadia Petrowa and Wera Zwonarewa alone with their coaches. They did a training match and Vera was really bad and was nearly crying - even in training! She seems to be a wrack in nerves, if something went wrong she was so pissed of. Nadia was very focussed and hit some nice shots.
I wanted to see Lisicki but the court was so crowded that I was not able to get into it. So I watched the doubles qualifiying between the Barna sisters and Malek/Kerber. Malek and Kerber was a lot better then the Barna sister, they just played rubbish, especially Anca. So Tatjana and Angie won easily.
So now I interrupted my report for 2 hours, because of school stuff, sorry for being so late.
Ok after that my mum came to the grounds and we did some other stuff, watching a bit of Shaughnessy and Hantuchova having a training match and the second qualifer doubles match. But I was not looking very much at the match because my mum was talking some nonsense. We saw Schruff and Dechy training together, too.
Then I went home because my mother wanted to go home after 1 1/2 hours and I was thinking that The doubles qualifier final would be on monday. So I went home and saw on the internet, that the match of Malek is on, I went back and saw the second set which was dominated be Malek and Kerber, with some nice shots of Gehrlein - Matic was not very good.
In the end of the day, I just watched Babsi Rittner and Julia Schruff hitting a bit together and went home. Not such an exiting day - but ok.
Sorry that my report is not so well written as I want it to be, too many other stuff to do. Pictures will follow in a moment.
