Hi there!
As usual, first, weather's precision: it was sunny again, and it is planned to be much better tomorrow more hot :D .
Today, i began on a cold atmosphere as Micki (Rita's coach) and myself were frozen during Rita's warming-up. Rita played pretty solid and strong, i really enjoy when she's playing like that, even if i must admit that Lucy is not at all a clay court player. But Wow, 6/0 6/1 :worship: :worship: . She was happy with the way she played (she could) and kissed me when she went out the court :) .
Then, i went to see some points on court 7 (Sucha/Medina) to spy the adversory ;) . All i can say is that confidence of both players seems to be so down. Lots of unforced errors and easy shots missed. Anabel lost mentally. Anyway, i definitely think has a good chance to win tomorrow :) To follow with some matches that i partially saw, i can say that was the first time i watched Sharapova played (in match). Like i noticed it yesterday, what a potential. At the other side of the stadium, you could hear how loud she was screaming :) Convincing victory with a lots of determination. Anastassia is a good player too, but less potential.
About Mirjana... Well, she's always interesting to watch. I have seen the end of each set, and she has so much talent on her hands, but not consistent enough. She's more fitter than last year, that's obvious. Snyder didn't play bad, but when Mirjana rises her level, she didn't have real answers. The real changement that i noticed in Lucic is her mental : she seems very determined, always encouraging herself from the bginning to the end, more than last year. She was happy to win. Tomorrow, she'll have a great test versus the so nice litlle Spanish Gala. I won't miss that :drool: .Saw some points there and there, Kapros for example, who have got a enjoyable style. Had the impression she improved a little bit her second serve, more longer. (Hey! I said only a little ;) ) Mashona wasn't patient enough to play against the always solid Greta Arn. About Mashona, i've an info : talked to her later, and she told me she'll stay to play doubles, probably with... Ashley Harkleroad :D :D . Still, she has to wait for a confirmation from Ashley.
Perry is a good player, was surprised to see how good she acclimated herself with clay style of game :eek:
Apart match, i met Ai today, took a pic with ( she told me that it was 10 Euros the picture ;) ) Always funny Little Ai :) Took pics too with Jankovic (really kind, all croat and serb are very friendly). Surely with much others, but i don't remember all of them ;) .
About the men's corner, my friend Tipsarevic (ok, friend of my friend Isa too :wavey: ) is always nice and funny. We're waiting for Nenad :bounce: . Took pic with him on court, as i did it with Xavier Malisse or the Bryans Brother ON the Central. Paradorn practiced three times today. André two. And the Frenchies are really waited by my colleagues journalists :o . Guga arrived in Paris today and practiced in the court 2 at 5 PM.
As always, if i remember about something i'd forget to menbtion, i'll come back to this thread :)
I'm hoping for some top players now, i want them :D :drool:
Write to soon :)

It sounds actually more like Ai's mother (who would have been serious about the 10 Euros, with payment in advance :p ).

No pic of Zi or Jie by chance :angel: ?

Enjoy the coming days :D .

thansk for teh report.

Was Lucie abysmal? Or was Rita just too good? Form teh live scores it looked as though Lucie could get to 30-30 and deuce, but couldn't close out.

Was she hitting alot of errors? She's usually got a very low UE count.

Glad to see you ahd so much fun :)

BTW, Rita was solid today, really good on key points. Lucy didn't have opportunity to develop her own game, and frustrated herself a little bit. She has been totally dominated on the first, but the second could have been more close with a less good Rita i believe. As u said, some games went often to 30-30, but then points went really fast in favor of Rita, who was particularly agressive today
