Ok it's not even a report because I'm really tired and my face and some parts of my body are completely burned :p

I saw the first set of Magui vs Conchita
The end of Brianti vs Sobral
Very little bits from Perianu - Azarenka / Barrois - Schwartz / Pitu - Uberoi
The first and second sets of Alla vs Margit
The end of the first and all the second set of Flipkens - Bohmova
The whole match Argeri - Pangaio, same for Ferreira - Shvedova
Oh and I saw a few points from the LARGE Grandin against Ting Li
To tell the truth I think I saw a few points from almost all matches as I was always moving around :o

In Margit vs Alla match, my camera decided that it hadn't a card and stopped working :rolleyes: :fiery: I only have a few pics of Magui, Conchita, Alberta, Leticia, Alla and Margit.

If you are interested in details of any particular matches or if you want any of the very few pics I have, you have 30 minutes before I go to bed :angel:

Well from what I saw, Leticia tried to play the same agressive tennis that Alberta was playing to stay in the rallys with her, but she made a lot of unforced errors. She hits well from both sides, but doesn't really have a huge weapon and is too inconsistent.

About Grandin, I have to tell you the truth, the only thing I noticed is that she's fat :o I only saw a couple of points from her match and I have no clue how she won. I saw her practicing later with another player (who I don't kno but I think was her doubles partner) and they were saying something about the doubles being ridiculous for this tournament but I didn't understand in what context. She really didn't seem anything special, but I guess she did well enough to win.

Bohmova is a lefty with a strong serve and powerful shots from both sides, plays well at the net, but she can't string a lot of good points togheter. She'll really have to work on that aspect of her game, because in my opinion, her victory today was a total gift from Kirsten, who was playing really well and seemed very promising, but then brainfarted as Eggy would say :o
By the way, Kirsten's coach is Clijsters' ex-coach. This is probably not news but I didn't know until today.

:lol:

I forgot to say, for Magui fans, she'll be back at her best, she just needs match practice. She served some balls between 170/180 kmh :eek: and all her shots are there.

Also, I was really impressed with Margit, Kristina and Alberta :)

:wavey: About Natalie's comment on the doubles being ridiculous, maybe she was referring to the lack of teams signing up :shrug: In last year's Estoril doubles draw, there were 3 byes :o, and teams ranked 1800 or something got in :o

I've heard that Natalie slimmed down...she hasn't play in awhile, so this is disapointing to hear. :rolleyes:
