Harkleroad vs King

Both players hit pretty solidly, both wore that red adidas top. Ashley was pretty motivated to win. Vania has pretty nice groundstrokes but her serve is a weakness. King looks really young.

Gajdosova vs Vierin

Jarmila didn’t play as well as previously from what I saw (in the 1st set), too many balls into the net. Vierin’s face looks a bit like Arvidsson, she isn’t a pretty tennis player but she’s pretty solid, Randriantefy went to watch this match.

Azarenka vs Wozniak

Azarenka reminds of Nicole Vaidisova, give her a year and she’ll be top 50 no doubt. Her groundies are pretty brutal, she’s got a nice serve too but needs to work on her consistency. Wozniak looks a lot like Poutchek, her groundies are her strength.

Hsieh vs Tanasugarn

Hsieh was pretty bad, double handed on both sides but her game has a pretty high margin of error, very flat player who was totally off today. Tanasugarn looked comfortable out there.

Bohmova vs Yakimova

Really impressed by Anastasia, she remains of Alona Bondarenko with her solid serve and topspin groundies. Bohmova got pretty pissed off easily, even yelled out “can you be quiet” to this baby who was crying lol.

Woerle vs Rodionova

Anastasia was so pissed off afterwards, refused to shake the umpire’s hand and stormed off, not even talking to her Aussie boyfriend. Woerle on the other hand was pretty stoked, Rittner was there cheering her on too in German. Rodionova argued this point at 4-5 0-30 and got pretty furious, she was pretty fiery the whole match.

Meusberger vs Gehrlein

Meusberger has a very olden technique on her forehand ala Brandi and Frazier, she’s nothing flashy but she got the job done. Gehrlein is a graceful player to watch but simply lacked power.

T.Li vs Hisamatsu

Didn’t see much of this, just saw the man looking Chinese girl slice and use the court comfortable over the double handed (on both sides) Japanese player.

Savchuk vs Fuda

Olga has such a weird service action. She hit the ball the hardest out of all the women I saw today, pretty flat too but I like her game. Fuda is so adorable and fought her best today but it wasn’t enough.

Obziler vs Abramovic

Ivana wore a purple top and looked gorgeous. Love her backhand, it’s so nice to watch, but Obziler is in good form and looked pretty motivated out there.

Black vs K.Bondarenko

Kateryna isn’t as good as she is hyped up on here. Nothing really flashy about her game and Black’s variety totally put her out of comfort zone. Black had a toilet break after the 1st set.

Yuan vs Mattek

Bethanie was the only player I saw who served and volleyed today, she looked nice in pink. Yuan remains me of an Asian Kuznetsova, has similar bulldog legs and is solidly built.

Practice Courts

Petrova practicing, had her hammy strapped heavily but was hitting and moving pretty well, she was on a court with Diaz Oliva

Llagostera Vives who is literally miniscule and was wearing a bra.

Kuznetsova wore this funky stripped top and was hitting and playing points with Sugiyama.

Safina hit with Dushevina and looked pretty angry whenever she missed a ball.

Saw Dulko walking around to her practice court, she looks better on TV.

Mirza was hitting with Granville.

Srebotnik and Amanmuradova (who literally looked, acted and played like a pan) were on the same court, practicing their serves.

Saw Kostanic walking around, looking all confident.
