The quality of this field is not very high, too many British girls. And the ranking of those British girls is in most cases overrated since they can easily pick up points in the many British satelites / Challengers.

I knew Linsey would beat Lucy. Linsey is going to go pretty far she has a good game.

Hi all

I went down to the tennis centre for a couple of hours yesterday afternoon to watch some of the young british girls. I only saw bits of the matches but here's what I thought:

Chantal Coombs vs Rebecca Fong - it's a shame that Chantal had to retire because I saw most of the first set and she was playing really well. She was hitting the ball a lot lower over the net than Rebecca, although Rebecca was a lot more aggressive. She came to the net a lot more, and if she could gain a little more consistence, she has the power to go a lot further.

Jade Curtis vs Claire Rickets - The first thing I noticed about Jade was how buff she was for a 15 year old girl! She looks in such great shape. She did glare at me a couple of times though when she missed one, like it was my fault! I guess when there's only about three spectators it's hard not to notice them! Claire seemed really nice, even though I distinctly heard her call the umpire a twat under her breath! Watching the two of them though, it was quite clear that there was only gonna be one winner. The thing I really liked about Jade was how much she wanted it.

Claire Peterzan v Elizabeth Thomas - Claire was the main reason I went down there. I'd noticed some fairly decent results lately and I wanted to see what she was like. As it happened, she was on the court next to Jade/Claire and I ended up watching them instead. From what I did see though, she really shouldn't have lost the first set, she seemed to allow Elizabeth to play her own game and it cost her the set.

Overall, I had a great couple of hours. It was very hot, so hot that I had to leave after two hours. How they managed to play tennis I'll never know! Oh and the beer was really cheap! £2 for a pint of Kronenburg! Think I may head down there on Saturday night!!!!!!
