It's so sad. She started so well. The first set was
over very quickly, with a result I obviously approved of.
The second set was a lot more difficult. Suarez was
playing well; she hit lots of lines, and Ms. Safina was a
little more erratic, compared to the first set.
Also, all of Argentina was at the tournament. There was
a big cheering section for Suarez. There were a few of
us cheering for Dinara, but the Argentinians were very loud.
In the third, as you know, Ms. Safina saved quite a few
match points--very strong will. It was good to see.
However, in the last game, Ms. Safina was a bit down
and sloppy, and that was it.
I have tons of photos I'll get up soon, and I will obviously
see Ms. Safina and Ms. Srebotnik play doubles as well.
