Well this was my first day of oncourt tennis for any tournament!!And it was amazzinngggg..

Well when I reached the court,domachowska was up 40 0 I think..It was 3 MPs apparantly(I figured it out later) But Shaughnessey played out of her mind and I think also help by Dfs by marta..I was amazzed how hard and flat both ladies were hitting the ball..Shaughnessey serve motion is one of the wierdest I have seen..She doesnt have enough shoulder roation and all but it somehow magically works!! Meanwhile I figured out I was sitting next to Benesova :hearts: and for some reason she was watchign this match while listening to her I pod..I got her pics too..Then Sania passed by the court accompanied by Lena Vesnina..They two were gonn apractice together :hearts: ..Sania looks soo much better and cuter in person..

Anyways when it was medical timeout for domachowska,I left the court to take some pics of sania and Elena..And took plenty of them.On a nearby court,Safarova and Benesova started practicing!! Safarova is soo beautiful..With amazing eyes and was looking real nice in a red dress..Anyways Sania and Vesnina were having a lott of fun while practicing..Always talking and joking..But Sania was catching tape of net a lot of times and was veryy frustrated at times..Man..Shes got a temper!! She handles it well though..Anyways I am sure she used the F word a few times.. Her forehand was FLATTT and the FH drives were sooo hard at times :hearts:. Plus that wrist action on her BH is just simply amazing too..vesnina has got a good serve and really nice movement and she looks amazing..Anyways at the end everyone left and I managed to get a Pic with sania and her sign as well..And I said "I hope you win this tourni" and she said"well,let me win a match first :)" She was visibly irritated by her performance in Montreal I think..She just caught tape of net all the time in that match I think..Anyways I wished her luck for the open and she said thanks and we left.. :hearts:

Also on my way back to stadium, saw lucie and Benesova packing up..And I said Hey lucie can I have your picture and she was soo sweet and was happy and said sure..So I had pic of both her and Iveta..Meanwhile Camerin was kicking ass of Loit..loit was all with slice and no pace shots and Camerin was just pounding the ball..I dunno if loit ever held in that match but she broke 3 times I think in 2nd set..But the match finiished quickly..

Then yeah,there was someone beautiful outside warming up I dint know who and then someone told me it was bremond and I went and had a pic with her..Shes soo lovely..Her match with arvidson was awesome..Bremond has a hell of a serve..And has a veryy good kick on that 2nd..She was really into the match and was Allezing quite often and screamed soo hard when she lost her serve at 3 3 or 4 4 or something like that and broke right back..It was a good match with good defense and offense from both players and bremond mixing it up on her BH and pounding that forehand!!

Anyways gosh!! I wrote soo much just now cant believe!! Hope you guys enjoy it..Will post some pics and some vids later..

Okay,First of all good luck to whoever wanna read this one as I think its turned out to be a BIGGG report!!

Here goes my report for the 2nd day..Started with a bad start..Somehow reached at FH when benesova and her opponent was tied at 1 1 in 3rd..Benesova looks so much more beautiful on court!! Shes got grace I tell you.A pretty serve motion and an effective lefty serve..This match was soo much different than any other matches I had seen so far and mainly coz of her opponent whose name I still cant remember..its just too hard to remember..Anyways in all other matches ball was basically bashed..But this spaniard woman is just kinda player to frustrate you..Shes got a veryy defensive all court game with her Loopy FH and veryy steady Slice BH!!But mind you she can pass you with a fast flat one DTL at times if needed..anyways Benesova was hitting ball flat with medium speed by both wings..She kind alost her concentration and seemed really down and out of the match!!lost her serve number of times to go down 1 4 then had few BPs on the opponents serve but spaniard held tight and kept on frustrating Iveta with her slices and lobs and making her hit one more shot..Whole body language of benesova was just negative..Now at 1 5 quickly benesova got down 15 40 and saved the MPs with good serve and nicely placed shots!!Again DFs,UEs,missed volleys kept coming from deuce side and beautiful all court game from Ad side..She must have saved 6 to 7 MPs I am sure..finally she had a GP which she dint take and again had couple of MPs against..Finally she actually held..:eek: Anyways if you think this is a beginning of a brave comeback then wake up,its real life!! She could not break in the next game and match was over!!

Next came lucie and vesnina..They both looked great and Lucie looked soo fit and ready to go!! Shes got a good serve too..Just can throw some wierd DFs in between..Lucie is kinda sania like player!! A mere ball basher!! I expected her to be a bit pattyesque but she turned out to be complete opposite..She knew only one language and it was hitting hard and trying for winners!!On the other hand Vesnina was solid with good groundies and a solid serve!!And as a routine Safarova found herself down 2 4 in 1st set!! Now starts a bit drama..Lucie holds solidly to make it 3 4 and soon suddenly Lucies shots find their place in the cpurt and vesnina is down 0 40..But she held strong with her strong groundshots and solid serve!! And actually held miraculously saving atleast 4-5 BPs..Then bagged the set 6 4..2nd set was a veryy similar story with Safarova now even DFing a lot to go down 1 4 0 40 (on vesnina serve) now come 3 clean winners off 2 2nd serves and a 1st serve of Vesnina by Safarova..Rattling everyone with Vesnina..But soon dream ended for 1 5 but telling vesnina to be alert as Lucie can be dangerous!! then lucie held and broke at 15(on a DF) then again held,fighting tight both with vesnina and herself!! Meanwhile at 5 4,vesnina finally won the battle with her nerves and put some good serves in to seal the victory!!

Now came Sania vs Glatch match..Sania looked awesoem as usual and alexa looked like a tall blonde kid with huge backswings and a good serve..She clearly had a gameplan..Almost every serve was to Sanias BH and her plan was to slice her BH as much as possible to keep ball deep and low!! Good game plan on paper harder to execute due to inexperience and unpredictability of her opponent!! Anyways,Sania started off realy strong breaking glatch from 30 0!! But guess what shes down again 15 40 on her own serve :lol: but then she hits an ace :eek: (which might as well be long! trust me, a lot of serves look long but they dont call..I think they r playing pretty safe the linesperson in FH! They wont call it out unless serve is like a mile out :lol: anyways it works in favor of players who r leading I guess,as it saves possibility of losing DFs to nerves!!or maybe they catch outside of line or something.I would never know..Anyways even with this system,yesterday domachowska managed to hit a lot of DFs :tape: ) Anyways, so an ace and a clean winner and sania was back in business..She actually wasnt hitting so hard..Mainly was taking well the glatch slices,not trying to do too much with 1 shot and moving glatch!! Then once in a while she would hit a bazooka Fh and everyone would be :eek: (again it helps you here in FH if you are hitting hard,as they wont call it out unless its out by a mile :p) Anyways sania had no troubles in 1st set 6 2 with no break of her serve!!

2nd set started with sania hitting some clean winners and some long rallies and finishing points at net!!Glatch was 0 40 and soon broken at 15!! Sania somehow held :eek: and broke right back..You would actually sense the impending doom over the whole match if you know sania!!And yet again she was broken at 0!!! 3 1 now..But she holds her nerves and breaks glatch yet again with some canny play..4 1 and then some good(!) serves and good play and is up 5 1..Some indians near me hurridly take out a marker and something to get her autograph!! But glatch manages to hold!! 5 2 and sania goes back to the baseline ready to serve..But as usual starts spraying the balls..And loses serve on a DF!! I say to myself here I go again for a longg ride!! But glatchs inexperiance at this point pays off and sania breaks her with some breathtaking winners!! And seals a good victory 6 2 6 3!!Anyways match is over but sania stays on court! Apparantly,she hasnt had enough exercise or something and starts hittign with her coach!! I think she restrained her bashing for major part of the match and she wants to let it out and she starts pounding the ball soooooooo HARD both FH and BH wings,its hard to see if its in or out..This looks bit flamboyant but first time me seeing it hence its mesmerizing!!Really,effortless hitting producing immense power!!Strong use of wrist too..

Anyways finally shes done and comes out of court..Now there are very few fans out there and I dunno how it works but you should have courtesy to stop and sign somethings if someone wants to!!Anyways eventho she dint actually stop,she signed whatever 2 3 people wanted to get signed..Now I get a sign and say "good luck for tomorrow" and I think its simple manners to say "thank you" or atleast smile!!Dont you think??But she doesnt say anything..Lemme tell you, shes a bit cocky!! :lol: Maybe its a defense mechanism for a celebrity to survive in India as if you are too nice fans will not let you even live in peace!! Making you sign the whole day and trying to talk you!! Anyways whatever it is,I think someone like Lena would have smiled and said thank you if someone wishes her luck.Theres never excuse for being cocky or haughty me thinks..But apparantly some guys like it...Anyways I am being fair and giving my judgement..Now if you think this makes her less of my fav then its wrong!! Its a part of being Indian i guess you are always too loyal to your favs :lol: Plus I like her gamestyle more than ever!! Now only if she was like Lucie and marta to talk to!! :hearts: Nonetheless,tomorrows match will be crazyy I am soo sure!! The way spaniard plays,sania is gonna hav hardd time..But I will be there again supporting her all the way GOOOOOO SANIAAAAAAAAAAA...

I saw Glatch play in Los Angeles a couple of weeks ago. She was wearing some sort of wrap around one of her calves. Also I thought she was moving gingerly to protect that leg. What was the story with Alexa against Sania? Did she still have her leg wrapped? How was her movement?

Thanks for the post.

Yes, you are right. I did wish her good luck at Roland Garros and she said thanks, but she is not very fan-friendly. Elena Dementieva, as you say, is always so nice. If there are two or ninety fans out there, she will always smile, sign and pose. She is one of the fan-friendliest players out there.

The players must feel like being a club player all over :lol:

Thanks a lot again :wavey:



Yes, you are right. I did wish her good luck at Roland Garros and she said thanks, but she is not very fan-friendly. Elena Dementieva, as you say, is always so nice. If there are two or ninety fans out there, she will always smile, sign and pose. She is one of the fan-friendliest players out there.
yeah maybe she will get better if she actually achieves something ..:p :lol: I mean look at roger as far as I know he is soo modest off court! Anyways all this hype would go in anyones mind!I dont think even roger is mobbed in switzerland like sania is in India..I hope she doesnt turn out to be another sharpy..:p But she atleast stops everytime anyone asks her autograph or picture(unwillingly of course) hence already better than sharpy isnt it?

Is there a chance, you can take pictures of the outside courts like you did with the stands. They seem to remain the same. Do they still have 3 courts on the center court?

Thank you very much for your reports and your pictures. The reports give a real good picture of how the matches went and some of the pictures are just brilliant. Some great ones of Sania. The one of the two of you together is brilliant. But my favorite has got to be that shot you took sitting next to Iveta. I love the way she is looking right at you. I don't think she looks like she minds having her picture taken. She looks very genuine. Her expression says if you want to take my picture thats cool but I aint going to make any silly smilie expressions. This is me as I am.

I actually I love that about East European women. They never try to hard too make an impression. They just are who they are and if you like them fine and if you don't fine. Benesova's expression in that picture captures that essence perfectly and its a beautifully real unpretentious snapshot of a lovely girl.

I do for the same reason but I think differently about Maria Sharapova. She is more Americanized and I thought MOnica Seles was the same way.

I agree. I'm not a fan of Sharapova or for that matter Vaidisova because in so many ways they have become so Americanized and they've lost that disarming naturalness that one sees in so many East Europeans.

Believe as an Indian growing up in America, you do it because you are forced to choose between an American or a foreigner. I think Elena is struggling with that as well. Because the theory goes, the more American the better chance you have to win.

Maybe but considering the state of the women's game in America it isn't one that carries much water. :lol:

I asked her if I could take her picture of course!! I mean thats chivalry..You cant just put camera on her face without telling,sitting right next to a person without asking..:p atleast I wouldnt..:D anyways she dint seem to mind her pic taken for sure..Actually I think I was the only one to ask her for a pic I think..:)

And the cebter court is just one bigg court now!!I cant believe they had 3 courts there :eek: I mean theres hardly any space for 3 courts

Well if you think you cant get anything for free then I think you should rethink as I not only got something but actually got to see almost everything for free today..Partial Choke,comeback,choke match,rain,rain delay,playing under floodlights and even postponing of the match for the next day!! What more can you ask being a tennis fan trying to slug it out in bright sunlight the whole day..

Anyways yesterday night I discovered one of my tooth is not soo much in perfect shape infact I could hardly eat and have to show a doctor but guess what student health insurance plan wont include dental insurance!! Can you believe it?Do they think students have perfect teeth or what.Anyways if they think this then they r dead wrong! Anyways but theres something called emergency dental service available..Even though my condition was far from being "emergency",I had to do something and this is where my tennis knowledge paid off!! I faked it.Yeah you heard me right I faked an injury :p I went and said I cant eat at all and this is unbearable then they took a free x ray and told me some bad news! Anyways point is I faked an injury and believe me its not that easy to pull it off..(The doctor said she always have atleast 15 "emergencies" everyday! :lol: hence I guess everyone is good at it )

Anyways after all this drama I reached FH to see a wierd SB and soon score was 6 1 1 6 1 1..Now whoever has seen smashnova,she is sure a tiny creature but is veryy wellbuilt! And shes the first grunters I saw so in person..Boy does she grunt all the time in a veryy irritating manner! She was playing sucha with her high loopy shots..The flat hitter was constructing points beautifully at times but just couldnt put it away..Basically she always looked down in the whole 3rd set..And smashnova was receving medical treatments every now and then..(Well looks like I am not the only one to fake an injury well :p )Anyways the match ended quickly..Well I must add both of them dint have enough shoulder turn on their serve motion resulting in generally medium paced serves!!

Next came vesnina and Meghann(her last name is too complicatedto spell)..Match started with elena serving and the exact thought crossed my mind was how perfect her serve motion is!! Using every bit of her body!! Nice to watch :hearts: anyways she started authoritatively holding easily and then had 2 BPs on opponents serve but could not convert..Again she held easily and had trillions BPs and after a marathon game shaughnessey(thats closest i can get!) held for 2 2..And guess what in next game I was eating my own words!! Vesnina did 2 straight DFs to concede the game 3 2 to meghan..But vesnina striked back and meghann was again 15 40!!But again some good serves and too safe play or wierd errors helped meghann to hold miraculously yet again and she was 4 2 and guess what,even in next game,vesnina continued her pattern and DFed 2 times to hand over that game nicely to Meghann..Until now,shaughnessey had always BPs against her on her serve but this time she served out comfortably(with help of errors from elena!!who was saying all sorts of thing in russian :p atleast was saying nyeeat or something that lena says)..Anyways end of 1st set..

And then Vesnina took a bathroom break and went out..As she was coming back(accompanied by some linesperson),her coach was already outside of court and tried to talk to Vesnina something i n Russian (sneaky) :lol: but elena dint even look at him!! Not even a glance..I guess she dint wanna cheat maybe or just dint wanna see her coach!!Lemme tell you she aint using the on court coaching for sure!! :p..Anyways 2nd set was the same story that Vesnina held comfortably and meghann always had longgg games..Now meghann was throwing some DFs for a change but she always managed to hold.Well but at 3 3 Vesnina again threw some Dfs and errors as if to mock at my assumption of perfect serve motion and was broken to go down 3 4 but when everyone thought she was down and out,she broke back again at love!!This time punishing everything she got!!Then held and looked like it might go to 3rd set but shaughnessey had other plans and held easily followed by error fest of vesnina and an easy hold by meghann to wrap up the match 6 2 7 5..Todays Vesnina was soo much different than yesterdays!She was kinda like lucie was yesterday (except hitting not so hard)..Wish she had found her range in time...

Anyways then came miss Mirza and Lino(finally i looked up her name just now :o)This woman is kinda like smashnova in game style..Anyways sania won the toss and chose to receive!As I had expected the strategy for Lino was obvious!! To put in as many slices,High bouncing shots,lobs as possible and attack net at times!! Well sania seemed to resond well to her slices and soon had 2 BPs on opening game..But blew them..Again 1 more BP and then somehow Lino actually held..Looked like this is a bad sign but the indian girl was not altered and held at 0 :eek: with an ace!! Then Lino had an easy service game!! And again sania responded with a 15 hold of hers(with 2 aces to seal the game :eek: both down T on both courts) Again,Lino seemed to try to mix the game with her loopy FH and I must say sania hung in there!! A year ago this would make sania go wild and she would try to hit winners on everything!! But she was trying to place it moving ball from side to side!!But the spaniard was just relentless in bringing back everything she could!!Anyways she held and sania again held at 0 :eek: again 1 or 2 more aces..Now came a heartbreaker..Lino really started to play her FH with soo much spin,the balls were bouncing highhhh and next one would be a wicked slice off her BH..There were long rallies and at times sania could finish points well ..She must have had 3to 4 BPs again in this game but either her shots caught tape or Lino took advantage of her poor movement and held somehow for 4 3 this wasnt looking good as you always expect sania to break atleats once in first 7 games(if not hold :p )Anyways the next game started with a bad note sania missed a FH in the net and suddenly raindrops started to fall and play was suspended!! But it drizzled for 10 mins and then it stopped..they started flood lights and started clearing the court!!(they were actually using small children and towels :p) they dint even have any covers..Anyways water was veryy small sothat small chilren could wipe it fully from the court!and the players were back again.They just hit and were practicing their serve and there came rain again and this time lashing everything!!

Players were going back and then they announced that match will be resumed tomorrow morning which made sense as they would never have been able to take water out of that court :p with the technology(!) they had..Anyways Lino politely asked if they could play the match on an adjacent Clay court instead as it doesnt matter if it rains a bit for clay court :lol: and official replied "yeah,you would like that wouldnt you " :lol: Anyways this was my 3rd day at FH ..I dunno when I will go there tomorrow..Its hard for sania to win 1st match itself..And I duno if she has stamina to play 2 actually!! Anyways I wrote a lot even a bout a seemingly uneventful day, haa?
:p good luck as usual for reading it..I wil upload some pics but just too tired..Bye all

Yes I could tell you asked her. And as I said I could tell she was cool about it. But what I love is that she doesn't put on any kind of pose. She just looks straight at you. A Sharapova or the like would immediately have flashed her best Hollywood smile. Iveta in contrast just stays totally within herself. And the part you played was to capture that moment brilliantly without trying to get her to put on a smile or anything. Great, great picture.
