I will post pics and if you would like a report on a certain player just ask :)

I saw mostly everyone so if you have a question about a player who wasnt playing and/or i dont have pics of, I most likely still saw them.

Vesnina & Bondarenko started out great leading 5-1 or something like that & were smiling/laughing a lot. Then when Kleybanova/Makarova started coming back they played more seriously. The 2nd set was filled with screaming mostly from Makarova and Vesnina. A.Bond and Vesnina would yell at their coaches when theyd miss easy volleys or be passed at net. Vesnina's grunt in the 2nd set was "hi-ya!" And she grunted on every shot with the same loud intensity, even if it was a drop shot or lob. :lol:

Sam played great. From 5-0 up in the 2nd played a couple of bad games but finished it 6-2.

Thanks!! :D

Do you have any Radwanskas?

I posted one of Ula. A.Rad was there but i didnt get any pics. She only hit for about 15 min

thanx for the sharapova practice pics. do you have any other maria news or pics to post?

She was on a court in the far back so not many people knew she was there. She was hitting the ball extremely hard and flat and practicing hitting the ball from corner to corner.
