Sydney Qualies - Friday Report

I was on court 1 today (the court I wanted) and it was a gorgeous day outside . . a little windy but not bad and the rain held off

Chan d Rogowska 6-0 6-1

Poor Olivia . . . Yung was way way way to strong right across the board Ė especially forehard and hit a couple aces early on oh and good use of drop shots. Chan hits witha alot of pace and i doubt olivia ever faced someone this fast so there was many forced errors Olivia has some poteintial there but hard to play someone ranked so far above you . . Olivia has a nice backhand but needs to change her service motion but at 16 has along time to develope her game . .

Gajdosova d Sugiyama 6-4 7-5

Bit surprised that it didnít go to 3 sets . . Saw Ai practising in the morning and she was looking really good . . Jarka came out all guns firing playing beautiful tennis her forehands and backhands were cathing the back parts of lines and going right in the corners . . she has quite a powerful game but she is smart aswell Ė could possibly come to the net more to finish of points faster. Ai didnít do much wrong out there but Jarka was too good. JARMILA WILL GET AN AO MD WC !!!

Pin d Dominikovic 6-0 6-0

Ummm yeah . . . . I never knew why there were threads about Pinís Aces and this and that but now I do . . her serve is so ???? but out there today it was all so Needed . .Dani looked so out of place ( she so badly needs to put on weight !!! ) she had the right technique bad was so inconsistent one ball in the middle of the court next ball would hit the back wall. Pin to her credit stayed focused and played a nice simple game. She hit with lots of spin and easily won the match (if you hadnít of guessed by the scoreline)

Kanepi d Musgrave 6-3 6-1

Kanepi called for the trainer early on for her right or left foot (sry I forgot which one) Trudiís serve wasnít working today and she dug deep to stay with Kaia to 3-3 she hit with lots of spin and slice and tried mixing it up and it seemed to work. . . not sure what happened after 4-3 I had to leave . . . . .

Fedak d Garbin 4-6 6-3 6-3 (I think . .)

Best match of the day quality wise that I saw . . both players were hitting really hard and really fast and really well. I like Fedak so I was happy to see her win ( Alla Alla Alla) Fedak had a lot of Backhand winners and was able to frusterate Garbin who looked a bit pissed off today . . not much wrong with either player in this match it was Fedak who wanted it more out there today . . in Garbinís fairness there was quite a few overrules and wrong line calls at bad times for her

Bascinsky d Ferguson ??? ???

Sry im not sure of score only saw a little bit of this Ė can say that Sophie has a very nice serve and single handed backhand and looked comfortable hitting against Timea. But Timea had too much power and could also dictate when the rally was gonna end. Credit Sophie though she does look fit but its time to start pushing higher ranked players to 3 sets if not winning !

Wheeler d Errani 3-6 7-6 6-4

MY FAVORITE MATCH OF THE DAY !! Chrstina jumped to a 3-0 lead . . . she has really improved her fitness and movement and is a lot more aggressive in matches. She hit a lot of winner of Erraniís serve (awful serve by the way) and enjoyed many many long rallies which she would hold her own in. Wheeler played many good drop shots and mixed pace and slice in just about every long rally. Both players broke serve and at 5-6 00 Ė 30 down in the second set she ripped a backhand winner down the line which was only just in but kind of ignited her ( and Errani got the shits big time !! ) and from there took the tie break and then the third set on her third Match Point. The Crowd got behind her and that helped Christina sooooo much and Errani was crying on court at the change over and throw her wated across the court oh and got a time violation warning.
