I only went for a couple of hours. Didn't see too many well known faces. As usual, I took some pictures of players I don't know. I will post them and see if people can help out again. Here is Barbara Schett. I see her almost every time I go to Flushing Meadows. You can see Petrova in the background of "Schett 5" on a farther court.

Some distant pics of Hantuchova. She was jogging around the court to end her practice session.

Pics of Petrova. She looked to be in good form. Very focused.

No Bovina pics. The rest are of "unknowns." I'll next be going to the Open Tuesday.

As usual, I would appreciate if people could identify the players in the pictures.

Since people helped out, I changed some of the file names from "unknown" and added another pic of Gagliardi.

Thanks again for the pics. Makes me feel like I'm there when I see pics. I agree with TheBoiledEgg about unknown #1. It looks like Jidkova. Compare it to the pic below. Note the rackets.
