View from the Center Court (SO BEAUTIFUL!)

Meusburger vs. Malek
Well, first I thought that match will be a total snoozefest, but actually it was quite entertaining.

Malek started very nervous, Yvonne didnīt have to play something special to win the first set.
At the beginning of the 2nd set Yvonne wasted 2 Break Points and was totally off afterwards. Tatjana started to play better and she won the 2nd set quite comfortably.
In the 3rd set it was Yvonne who tried to dictate the game, I was shocked. She overpowered Tatjana very often (yes, itīs true!) but made also more errors than her opponent. When Yvonne was up 5-2 she started to choke and Tatjana played better. At *5-4 in the final set Yvonne played great, she hit 3 fast (!) serves to get 3 Match Points.

I donīt know why everyone says that Malek is a promising player ... she has a good footwork and a good serve, but her groundstrokes are nothing special IMO. Burger was too strong for her today :D

Groenefeld vs. Hladikova

That match was totally boring, bad Power-tennis at its best :yawn: Anna-Lena didnīt play well but it was still enough. Hladikova has a good serve and sometimes she hit nice forehands, but thatīs about it. She looked like a brainless ballbasher ... well, a very cute one :p

When I was moving I met Shahar and asked her for a photo but she said no :mad: Thanks god I saw Yvonne and Sandra minutes before their doubles match - and I got a pic with them :hearts:
Yvonne is such a sweetheart, really a sympathetic girl :yeah:

Tonight I will visit the Playerīs Party in the Casino of Bad Gastein - I hope it will be possible to take some pics :p :angel:

That's possible ... I was at the training courts first, that's why I was already gone so quickly. ;)

I've posted my pic's from yesterday here: http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=385581 :)

I also could have taken some offcourt pics from Patricia, Yvonne, Melanie and Tereza H. but I didn't ask them. :angel:

@ petrova-fan: I saw you yesterday when you were taking some pics from court 1 matches. ;)
I was sitting on centre court on the side where you can watch both courts. :cool:

View from the Center Court (SO BEAUTIFUL!)

Benesova vs. Petkovic

I didnīt notice any injury, Iveta moved quite well, she just made tons of unforced errors :sad:
Andrea played a solid set with some nice winners.

Bammer vs. Olaru

Sybille played really bad, UE after UE :help: Ioana played a good match, especially in the final set.

Zahlavova vs. Llagosterva-Vives

Nice match of Barbie! :hearts: The first set was way tighter than the scoreline insists. Nuria just choked at the important points. In the second set Nuria played better than Barbora, but she still lost because she keep making errors at the important points.

Cornet vs. Mayr
Patricia should have won that :mad: She played GREAT in the first set, overpowering Alize from the baseline. In the second set she was down 0-5 but managed it to get to 4-5. Then Alize hit some good first serves and the set was gone. The third set was tight at the beginning but Alize was smart enough to hold the ball in play, Patricia made all the errors :sad:
