Marta Domachowska vs. Barbora Zahlavova Strycova

So I arrived and Marta was right behind me marching on court.
They were warming up and Marta was just hitting a lot into the
net, so I was really worried she'd lose quickly to Barbora who
looked composed. I was so wrong in the first set. Marta didnt
let Barbora get away with any ball that wasnt really close to
the baseline. She was playing tennis like she did against Aravane
in Istanbul, seeing that I left at 3-0 to see Magdalena.
(I was soooooo shocked dto see she lost)

Magdalena Rybarikova vs. Valerie Tetrault

This match was a must see for me. I'm ahuge Magda fan and I think hervariety is amazing!
So I fet to the match and Rybarikova is serving for it. Some solid serves and tada shes taken the first set 6-3. The next set would be a HUGE shocker for me. I hadno idea Tetrault had game. Shes was mediocre in the sets she lost, but was really dictating with her forehand and attacking the BH of Magda. I learned that both have no fear ingoing to net. Magda is far better up there but Valerie did well to finish points up there. There were some awesome Topspin Lobs too. Magda lost concentration after some really tight line calls. Shes fiestier the Azarenka! And had no problem arguingwith the ump!! She really was intense in the match and I think she will get far with that attitude... Aggressivness :drool: Magda's forehand is wonderful! Really finished points with it and got Valerie on the run. Her backhand does not get enough depth and I think maybe if she had a bit bigger of a backswing it would help. The back swing seem slightly inexistent. The BH slice was great to chip and charge and to get Valerie off balance. Magda's serve was awesome, just she needs to get more first serves in. Also she moves really really well, I never knew that. The problems I saw with Tetraults game is that is was predictable and that she coulnt do mush on her own. Every second serve out wide she'd hit a short crosscourt BH. Also every short ball Magda hut would be sliced back. She returned tougher shots better that weaker shots. If she works on that she definitly has the FH to make the top 30 in the Future. Suprisingly the crowd was SOOOO for Valerie. It was everyone vs. Me :lol:
