Remember her name: Viktoriya Kutuzova!! She screams louder than Sharapova, Serena or Seles, and she got a wicked forehand for a little girl...she kind of reminded me of Anna K, but powerful...however in all fairness Lina K wasn't playing her best tennis on the cozy outer courts. ;)

Oh yeah, yesterday when I wrote the stadium was half full, that was a big-time exagerration, it holds 8,000, there were maybe 100 people there when I was there...anyway, today I got there in time to see the Ai v Obato match. It took Ai a while to get her rhythum but then she cruised...

Advice to anyone attending a tennis match here: sit near the media tents...you can see all the players as they come for their interviews and you might run into a cool vendor like I did: she gave me comp passes for the rest of the week :bounce: the promotors are hoping attendance will pick up when the top seeds start playing...and I guess many of the old Manhattan Beach Country Club folks canceled their subscriptions cuz they didn't want to drive to good ole Carson!!

oh yeah, at least four people (including a ball girl) told me Martina N was acting like a "total bitch" today before her dubs match :wavey:

Just wanted to say thanks for the great reports; I love these kind of things from smaller tournaments --wish more people did them.

Especially like your closing who's naughty/who's nice behind-the-scenes bits from the first two days.
