Luckily it's just 5.2, don't think it'll do massive damage but still hopefully they're safe.

There was more drama at the Commonwealth Bank Tournament of Champions on Friday as top seed Marion Bartoli retired with an ankle injury soon after the start of the third set in her battle with Spain’s Isabel Medina Garrigues.

And it wasn’t just the tennis that provided the drama, as shortly after the matches were completed and spectators had left, the tournament venue was shaken by an earthquake. Everyone fled the building, and Daniela Hantuchova conducted her press conference outside.

"I’ve never done a press conference like this before," she said. "It was quite frightening, but we seem to be okay."

OMG, I had a life threatening situation after an earthquake here in Bali. I felt like I was talking to reporters 10 miles away at the end of a tunnel, but they were right there next to me. The officials didn't have a clue what to do with me, whether to do my presser indoors or out. Luckily I survived to fight another day.

There was a much stronger quake a couple of weeks ago and a couple of buildings were damaged in the area.

I was speaking with Daniela right in this moment by phone - recorded. She was totally professional during this scary situation: after about 30 seconds she sayīs something like "What was the question?" Itīs already very popular via Slovak National Broadcast SRo.
