I went to watch the match today and it was pretty entertaining!
Dominique played very good tennis, with practically no errors, except at the net, which seems to be her weakness.
She hit more winners than Sabine also, especially with her backhand.
Both girls hit no aces, I think they would be able to rally with the current pro's, but when it comes to serving, their serves would be returned with winners, especially Sabine's.
Sabine still plays lefthanded, altough she's a righthander, and her forehand seems to be her strong shot.
Their condition isn't what it used to be, which is logical, after some of the longer rallies, Sabine would sit down on a linesman chair and huff and puff.
On matchpoint down, Sabine hit a double fault, but she was like: "No no no, please umpire and Dominique, give me another try!", and the umpire was: "Replay the point", and the girls shared a laugh, then Dominique hit an easy forehand volley out, and it seemed like the match could still turn around, which would be unfair, but on the next point, Dominique finished it off with a forehand winner.
They hugged and kissed and left the court with a loud applause.

Uhh, I don't know the number of the seat.
But it was right behind Sabine who served first.
So on the blue seats, not the red.
And I was on the front row.

Dude, did you take those last 2 pictures as the usher came along and pushed you back into your regular seat? LOL. They're looking kinda blurry.

Those are great clips and pictures. I was wondering if you had anymore that may be in better focus. I love watching Sabine Applemens but can't find any recent pic's. These would have been great if they were not out of focus.

Thanks....

It's zoomed in and they were moving, my camera can only take them like that... :confused:

All my pictures were like that. Kinda fuzzy.
Do you know how to help it? I have a Sony cybershot P52...

Yea, that looks nice, but I wasn't very close to them.
Or do you just zoom in afterwards and then trim?

isnt it sad that you go to watch matches sitting alone when others you know are just like few metres away...

nice rallies...

anyways... i think that theres a function in the camera in which you can change the resolution ? but it does take lots of space...

The tour needs more stars like Dominique and Sabine. I wish they were the Justine and Kim of today (in terms of success - not behind-the-scenes).

Actually, there were a lot of people, I would say around 4000 (in a venue of 15000 seats, it looks empty) , but everybody was sitting on the long sides of the court.

Yep, because Casanova had to play both singles and doubles yesterday evening, the organisation let Sabine & Dominique play one set. You can imagine everybody was quite happy with that, because Kim's match against Myriam only lasted 39 minutes!

by the way: Dominique won again from Sabine with 6-4
