Goerges vs Halep
It was the first match of the day ; and Goerges was hitting the ball strongly making winners and errors. Halep wasn’t knowing what to do in the first set but then she tried good things and wasn’t making a lot of errors whereas the german was frustrate with her errors and the arbitration. Halep was doing well in the beggining of the third set but she beggin to be nervous and was just putting the ball on the court without intensity ... Goerges come back to win the match! But Halep played a great match :yeah:

Rezai vs Poutchek
No surprise, Poutchek was disscussing the line calls everytime !! :o But Aravane is concentrated on her match and hit the ball really strongly without variety but the belarus was out of the match ... looks like she let the match to the french woman. :rolleyes:

Pin vs Jugic-Salkic
The first set is quite close and Pin play a clever game. JugicSalkic hit a lot of winners and unforced errors too ... she was complaining a lot and when a “line-boy” give her a foot fault on serve she yell to the umpire that “a 15 years old can’t see if she was good or not” :tape:
Camille was on control and won the first set no without difficulties ( I didn’t see the 2nd set)

Sprem vs Mraz
There were no match !! Sprem was serving very well, was aggressive and powerfull hitting lots of winners.The french wasn’t knowing what to do, she was always far to the ball ...
And she have a system on her back to put her ball for the second serve, it looks horrible :tape: ( You can see it on the pic!)

Camerin vs Hrdinova
The score is quite nasty especially in the first set because I think that Hrdinova was dominating. She was aggressive and use slice, go to the net and serve really well ( with her second serve whose like her first serve!! :eek: ).But on baseline she was making errors to try to be more powerfull. The italian looks more frusrated and demonstrative but come back from ¾ to 6/4 and won the match because she was more solid on important points.

Lybtsova vs Kucova
Maybe the best match of the day ! :) A lot of long rallies, impressive winers ... Both girls were determined to win this match and don’t let any balls easy! But in the first set Lyubtova was keeping all in the court she was running and running to finish by a winners or a mistake from Kucova. After the first set (6/0 !! but a great set! ) Kucova ask Tvaroskova for coaching, and then she was making less errors and the points are always so long ! It’s an hight quality match but with a lot of fault from the arbitration but the girls weren’t disscussing. Lyubtsova won because of the more variety in her game and her rare errors!

Rezai vs Korzeniak
The first set is quite quick ... the Polish is behind the baseline because of the power of Rezai. But in the second set she hang up and at 3/5 her service game taking more than 15 minutes but she lost on the 6th match point of the french! This was a match was full of errors exept this last game! :)

Pin vs Tvaroskova
I just saw the beggining of the first set, and it’s wasn’t impressive both girls haven’t got powerful weapon ... so there were rallies which finished most of the time by errors; Pin wasn’t bad at the net but wasn’t really use it ....
I'm sorry for the quality of my photos .. I don't have a big camera!
If you have any questions, don't hesitate ;)
