Kim had a few nice words for Amy during her on-court interview after the match...Reminded of the 11 year age difference between them, Kim said that it's always inspirational to see someone like Amy still giving it all out there and that she hopes to keep on seeing her (Frasier) for a few more years yet... she also said that the Nasdaq100 is one of her favourite tournaments ( ;) ) and that Nathalie Dechy, her next opponent, is a very steady player who has been playing outstanding tennis in 2005...

I hope we're gonna see Amy for couple of years still. She's a great and sweet person with a nice forehand :D

Thank you for the quotes. Did you see the match on TV ? If so, on which channel ?

That is a pretty nice thing for Kim to have said. But I feel bad for Amy right now. I think she has a losing record going into the clay-court season while in 2004 she was already on pace for having her best career season.

I hope she can get it together and get back to winning more matches.

I remember Amy having some bad luck with line calls as well last year in Stanford :(

there was indeed one very bad call against Frasier yesterday... the ball was so clearly long that Amy just scooped the ball back to the ballboy, just to be stunned when she realized the linesman didn't make the call... Amy screamed something to the term of "Oh, my God, that ball was out like this!" to the chair umpire, but he did not overrule the call anyway... that was an important point of the game because Kim, who was down a break in the second set and making uncharacteristic unforced errours with her backhand shots constantly clipping the netcord and double faulting a lot , got the break back after Amy,still upset with the call, netted the next point to give her the game to tie the score...

That's sad for Amy. :sad:

I hope it wasn't the same umpire as last week in the IW-final, I don't remember her, but she was very bad. Allison Lang or so? Dunno.

Yeah she's 6-6 going into the clay court season. She's had some tough draws though (Na Li in the first round of Hobart, Linetskaya in the third round of the AO, Clijsters here in the 2nd round, which was Amy's first match). She's also lost to two young players whose play is much better than their ranking suggests (Jackson and Kutuzova). She could have won those matches though.

I think Amy doesn't have the same confidence in her shots. She hit 10 winners against Kim last night, and it seems like she's reverting back to her old style of playing flat, deep, consistent tennis a la Mary Joe Fernandez. Part of the reason she did so well last year was because she was really stepping in and giving the ball a good whack.
