Actually, I don't think it was. Tons of service
breaks, and Eleni looked ill (she was coughing and looked
quite distressed.)

I'm a little worried.

I was a bad fan and only stayed for the first set.
Apparently they did better in the 2nd, and then there
was one of those super tiebreak things. The no-ad
scoring speeds things up, but I'm not fond of it.
I haven't actually seen a super tiebreak (or whatever
it's called) yet.

Again great pics Mary. I saw the super tiebreak in Warsaw and I didn't like it. It's like a sudden death....
Castaño/Tanasugarn (COL/THA) def. Daniilidou/Woehr (GRE/GER) 6-4,1-6,10-7

Order of play for Wednesday :

Grandstand Court 10.00 AM
1. Sania Mirza vs. Eleni Daniilidou

Well, today is tricky. Daniilidou and Srebotnik play singles at
the same time. I think I'll go to the Daniilidou match first (as the
grandstand is closer to my room...yes, it's all about my comfort), then
go to Srebotnik's match (as I will have a chance to see Srebotnik
later in the day, as long as everyone stays healthy.)

Oh hell...you know, Court 1 got crowded yesterday. I think I'll
go to Srebotnik first, get some photos, then go to Daniilidou's
match. Pray she puts up a fight.

Fingers crossed for both Eleni & Kata :kiss: Have fun Mary!

Kata won but Eleni wasted her chances against Mirza. She was serving for the 1st set and in 2nd she had a pretty good chance to take the lead but she didn't. Here are the stats, she took 5 of 20 BP....She really should have won this match

Eleni and Jaz now have the same coach, same hair, same clothes, same racket ... that's kind of eerie.

Nice pics, thanks!

Yes, much less hairy.
By the way, I figured out (when editing photos) that if you
rotate Eleni's frown upside down, it's almost her old smile.

:lol: :lol: BY the way, just read on her webiste that she had a hair cut on the way to Los Angeles. I'm not sure what she could do with her hair, it's already very short...
