Aug 27th, 2009, 01:26 AM
OMG Na :hearts:
Did Na and Azarenka play together against another team?

First they warmed up with each other and then they each played against young children;)
Na played with half of the kids from the New York Junior Tennis League and Vika played with the other half ;)

Aug 27th, 2009, 01:28 AM

so jealous that you were there :wavey:

we Na fans were so worried that she was still injured and may pull out of USO ... but she looks great in your pictures so I think for sure she will play :dance:

did Na and Azarenka interact with the other players? like Nadal, Serena, Federer?

Aug 27th, 2009, 01:31 AM
Thanks :)

Aug 27th, 2009, 01:31 AM
Who won LOL

Each kid got like 2 or 3 hits with a pro. I was too old to hit:rolleyes:
I think it was just like U14 or something:sad:

Well, the host asked Na and Azarenka some questions, but I didn't get to see Nadal or Serena coz I had to leave but Federer interacted with McEnroe and Na and Azarenka talked a little bit;)

oh :hug:

Aug 27th, 2009, 01:33 AM
Thanks for the effort but horrible pictures :tape:

Thanks for the effort but horrible pictures :tape:


I tried my best :shrug:

Aug 27th, 2009, 01:42 AM
Thanks! That's really cool that you got to go!!

Aug 27th, 2009, 04:15 AM
Report/picture threads belong in the tournament forums. I kept the Nike stars/Us open together as they are us open related. Please open a new thread for the Bronx pictures in the ITF forum.

Aug 27th, 2009, 06:25 AM
Thank you again:bigclap:

Aug 28th, 2009, 03:47 AM
I didn't take pics at the Bronx today so I won't bother making a thread just for reports from two matches:p

Aug 28th, 2009, 04:46 PM
Any report from USO qualies? :)

Aug 28th, 2009, 11:31 PM
I got there around 5:00 local time.

Manasieva vs. Marino:
I saw some of the second set. Manasieva was hitting some amazing shots and Marino couldn't do anything about it. Marino is so tall:eek:

Marosi vs. Pin:
I saw 6 games in the first set and 6 in the second. Pin was on fire all night. There was a lot of bad calls for both players, and they got really annoyed. In the beginning of the match, Marosi was doing really well. Then, Pin raised her level of play and was unstoppable. Katalin had a ton of UE's. It was really funny, when Katalin had 2 let's in a row on serve:lol:. After the match, Katalin looked really upset and then I saw her leaving the National tennis Center and she was really upset then too:awww:

Ahn vs. Martic:
I only saw a few games, but Martic was playing really well, and Ahn wasn't. I was really not pleased with Ahn. Martic was so nice after the match and I got her autograph:angel:

Muhammad vs. Rodionova:
I only saw a few games, and Rodionova was a litttle better than Muhammad, but Asia is much better than her ranking. She had some great shots during the match, but also some horrible ones too:tape:. Rodionova was so annoying so now I know why no one likes her:lol:

Sprem vs. Tetreault:
Sprem had some great shots, so I really don't know why she couldn't win:shrug:. She did had some bad misses though, but she was so much better than Val. They were both really nice after the match, and I got their autographs:)

Haynes vs. Chalova:
Haynes was very good as usual, and Chalova was really impressive. Chalova should definitely be in the top 50 ASAP :bowdown:

Zakopalova vs. Cohen-Aloro:
I only saw one game, but Zakopalova had some nice winners;)

Sorry for my short reprts, but there's not much to write when you went for 3 hours and also saw mens matches:shrug:

Aug 28th, 2009, 11:44 PM
Bronx ITF:

King vs. Coin:
King was really good at the start, but then Coin had some amazing winners and King couldn't keep up with her. King was also giving up towards the end:o. I think that Vania was better overall though, but she just couldn't string together a win:tears:

Cohen vs. Barrois:
Barrois really doesn't play like a top 100 player. She missed a lot of easy shots at net and quite a few overheads. Cohen has a pretty boring game. Very simple and basic.

Aug 29th, 2009, 01:10 PM
thanks for the pics :yeah: :worship:

vika :D :rocker:

Aug 29th, 2009, 09:44 PM
I don't know when I'm going in the MD yet, I was going to go Monday but I can't:(
I'm sure I'll go a few times though:D

Sep 1st, 2009, 05:34 PM
I was able to go last night:D
I saw Vesnina vs. Hradecka, Flipkens vs. Dokic, and Venus vs. Dushevina;)
I'll post reports later.

Sep 1st, 2009, 05:35 PM
Also coming up later are my photos from qualies as well as yesterday;)

Sep 1st, 2009, 06:30 PM
While I was waiting to get in, I heared Larcher de Brito screaming at the top of her lungs:o

Hradecka vs. Vesnina:
I only saw like 3 games or so as I wanted to see the Flipkens-Dokic match before heading to Ashe. Vesnina was doing well. There was this one games that went on forever, and I think Hradecka ended up holding in the end. Both had some good shots throughout the match, but you could tell that Vesnina was more experienced. Also you could easily spot Chesnokov's bald head in the crowd:lol:

Flipkens vs. Dokic:
When I was waiting for a changeover to go grab a seat, I saw Rossana De Los Rios waiting too. Both players had some really nice shots, but I guess Flipkens was mentally stronger. I never noticed it before, but Dokic makes a strange sound when she hits the ball, but it doesn't sound like a grunt.

Venus vs. Dushevina:
Venus was very shakey in the beginning, and you could tell. After she lost the first set, I thought that the second set would also be similar, and it was. Pam Shriver from ESPN was sitting near me for part of the match. After Venus won the second set and was up 4-0 in the second, we all thought it was over. Well it wasn't! Dushevina won 3 straight games. Venus struggled a little when trying to close out the match, it took 3 MP's, but she finally won in the end. Venus really needs to improve if she wants to win this tournament. She played like a #20 seed last night. But Dushevina is no #whatever. Top 30 at least! She had so many great shots.

Pics later;)

Sep 1st, 2009, 06:50 PM
Anything about Chaky or Bepa?

Sep 1st, 2009, 08:07 PM
No. I only went to the night session and you can't get in until 6:00 :(

Sep 1st, 2009, 09:31 PM
Thanks... maybe tomorrow

Sep 1st, 2009, 10:08 PM
I'm not going tomorrow;)

Sep 1st, 2009, 10:15 PM
:sobbing: maybe someday ;)


BTW send points for doubles at WCTT

Sep 9th, 2009, 02:28 PM

Sep 9th, 2009, 07:10 PM
No. I heard her screams from other courts though:p
Qualies pics coming either today or tomorrow;)
