Luckily, the rain did not come and I was able to play today.

I played someone I played two years ago and beat 76(3) 46 62. Very tough match, long rallies.

I won 63 64 today. :D

Today, I was very solid. A little shaky on my serve ( at 33 in the second set, I hit 3 double faults :help: ). I held on though. Very composed and followed my game plan of moving him around and using my lefty forehand on the red clay. :)

Uranium's turn on Wednesday. :D

no...I was down 5-3, came back then down 6-5, saved a SP, took it to a tiebreak, was down 6-3, fought it to 6-5, long rally and hit a forehand long:fiery:.
The guy was a pusher, he made no errors, and made sooooooo many:mad:

omg don't u know the appropriate answer was "i haven't even seen the draw. I only checked to see whether Uranium was on my side of the draw. I don't even know the person who i'm going to play. I just focus on what's happening on my side of the net. I don't even watch tennis. I'm having woman problems. Lucky shots..."

good luck! I want uranium to win the tourny.

:lol: The players are lying. They know exactly where everyone is and who is in their path.

I'll let Uranium post first about his match today before I pass comments.

I won 6-7(7) 6-3 7-5
I was down 5-3 in first, came back to 6-5 then lost 7-6, I just came out there a bit too nervous and lost a tight tiebreak where I led 4-1 and then was down 6-4, I had no set points:p
I won the second, and then went down 2 breaks in the third at 4-1 and then was down 5-3 (got one break back), and then won the last 4 games. My opponent's level dropped a bit, some may say choked, but I fought hard and earned my win despite hitting damn near 100 errors:lol: My backhand saved me as my first serve and forehand were nonexistent today:o I did get a lot of second serve practice which was good:p
I would make Vee so proud:hearts:

It was like watching Venus in a third round at Roland Garros. Worst match I've ever seen him play. There were no serve issues, not sure what he is talking about. Maybe he means the fact that he became a wimp and decided not to hit it anymore, then yeah. That's a serving issue. He charged the net every other point as if he were Navratilova. On the worst approach shots, too, so he either got passed or had to hit an impossible volley.

OH WELL, a win is a win I guess. Moving on! My 2R is tomorrow.

It sounds like you know what you did wrong, which puts you ahead of 95 percent of the other players at this level (including, unfortunately, myself). I'm sure you'll clean it up next round. :yeah:

Well about 4-8 teams play in Mixed so we said we'd give it a shot and the women are usually really bad. The sister playing with Paul is decent and the one I am paying with can serve decent, so that's all they need to do serve and return and we will try to do the rest and take over the court.

Doubles SF is Wednesday.

Maybe. Are you looking to have him play for you ?
I won 7-6(3) 7-5 today:woohoo:, I served amazing, but my second was a bit weak because he pretty much ran around and hit hard backhands each time.
My second semi in this tourny, first in 2007 and now:bounce:
SF is on next Tuesday at 5.

Forgot to mention that this was the guy who beat me in the semi in 2007, so some nice revenge:p
Well done.

Won 6-1 6-7(3) 6-2.

I was cruising along 6-1 5-2, attacking his weak backhand, hitting nice winners when it was forehand to forehand rallies, coming to net at the right time to finish off the points and then I became too defensive. Having so many forehand to forehand rallies, tried hitting to his backhand but he'd just run around it to hit forehands. Many forehands in the net from me. Goes to the tiebreak, where it was 4-1 and I hit an amazing backhand slice on the run down the line winner to make it 4-2. And then he comes up with 2 GOAT volley winners:o Then lost it 7-6(3). Got the break at 2-1 for 3-1. Started to be more aggressive again tried harder to get to his backhand. Led 5-2 and then cue another collapse. Had 6 match points and just kept blowing them with easy shots missed. And on the final match point hit a forehand DTL return winner, screamed YEAH! with joy:lol:

Won 6-0 6-4.:banana: I started out on fire, with my backhand hitting all kinds of winners, and coming to the net and hitting great volleys. Then comes 6-0 3-0, long game. I get tired, get a little unfocused and he comes back with some nice backhand winners of his own and pretty much relying on my errors. But I held him off to get to 6-0 5-4. Then he gets 0-40, I save all 3 then he gets another, but I hit a forehand winner. Then I get a match point and I DF:lol: Then he gets another GP which I save with a nice short inside out backhand. Then I get to match point again, and he hits the passing shot wide and I win.

I have now made the SFs in this tourny 3 of the past 4 years. This is my year to finally win and I am so determined to pull it off. I know each of the 3 remaining players, I have played all 3. I am 1-0 against my SF opponent, 0-1 against Simeone (lost to him in 2008 QF and he beat Paul last year), and Russo 1-1 (He beat me in 2007 SF and I beat him in 2009 QF)

Why is this tournament so drawn out :confused: what if you go on vacation or something, you just can't play?

This question has been answered plenty. It's a whole summer event (all of June to enter, July and August to play). If you go on vacation, people have, but it's stupid to then also enter the tourny. Plus the matches don't start until around 5 or 6 pm, and then throw in the fact you have players who enter more than 1 event. It is a match a week for each draw.

Congrats Cassie. You know this sort of makes up for Vee's patchiness. Best of luck in the final but big :cheer: for making it this far. We are so proud... seems like just yesterday you were running around in diapers and now look at you - battling it out for major championships. :sobbing: [/copied and pasted]

Won 6-2 6-7(5) 6-1. The first set the backhand was great, especially the backhand return. Second set, made too many mistakes and return errors. Third set I was pumped and was blasting backhand winners all over. So many :drool: backhand DTL winners:hearts:


Into the Finals for the first time:banana: 3rd time was a charm in the SFs. Final is Thursday.

Ajde! :cheer:

Keep us updated! If you win, you should retire from this tournament!

No:lol: I want to win this tournament more times, this will become my Wimbledon Vee style. Plus I want to win doubles and give Mixed another try.

That is such a champion's attitude. Me, I'm pathetic and if I won I'd want to have it stay that way by not playing anymore.

How does the seeding work at this tournament? Or is it just completely random?

Based off the result you did in the tourny last year. So winner is seeded 1, runner-up 2. SFists are 3 and 4, etc.

No he is. He beat me 5-7 7-6(5) 6-2 in 2008 QFs and he won it in 2008 and was finalist last year. He is a stupid pusher. I am ready for him this time.
