Went off to qualifying - only going to be short and sweet tonight since its 4am :lol: Got pictures that I shall post tomorrow.

Training sessions
First off saw Vika, Stosur, Amelie and Dokic practicing on the same court, didn't see too much of it. Jelena was ripping Amelie's serves back with awesome power, some of course hit the back fence though :lol: All 4 ladies were looking lean and fit.

Lucie also practicing seemed to be hitting fairly clean.

Marion was on centre court training with Daddy, seems to have changed her service motion again :tape: Looked a tiny bit fitter, but as you'll see by some pics she's still not in the greatest shape...

Ivanovic also training on centre court, was hitting very hard and clean was very impressed I must say! Fingers crossed she keeps it up in matches...

Hantuchova & Sugiyama training together, both looked fit and ready to go for season 2009 :yeah:

Matches
Karatantcheva didn't really impress me at all from what I saw... standing too far back in court, and not the greatest power... Schruff was playing her usual solid self..

Groenefeld was far too strong for Kutuzova, didn't see much of this though.

Starr has a nice first serve and forehand, but gee she needs to improve her backhand and second serve... didn't really look like she had much belief in winning either... Goerges just a typical ball basher too many errors hense the close first set.

Ferguson & Rodionova was way evenly matched hense the 3 hour match... Sophie should have won the first but imploded at 4-2 up in the first :help: Way way way too many doubles faults, that needs to be adressed immediately... had a stronger serve than Rodionova when it went in however. and as per usual Rodionova was being a whiny bitch the whole match :o

Mirkovic has a nice game, just Roro had way too much experience and won all the big points, closer then the score suggests however. Definantly like how Marija goes about her business though, and will improve greatly from this experience.

Yan too solid for Monique, but Monique played very well for her first match in months.

Luckily didn't see the Jess Moore trainwreck :tape:

Vania King looked to be playing very well, can definantly see her back in the Main Draws soon, Pin was well just Pin.

Pretty sure I covered it all :yeah: Photos shall come tomorrow/today whenevs... also going Sunday and Monday thanks for reading :D

:haha: Well Craig (AliciaRocks) and I are good friends, so I'm sure he's not worried. ;) Dunno about WS pics though. Neither are playing Hobart, and I'm only getting ground passes for AO - so unless they play on an outside court that'll be tough. But we'll see what happens.
