For the singles matches...

I REALLY don't like this schedule :tape:.
Vee is injured, so have her start really late at night :weirdo::smash:
Kuznetsova-Henin, which is obviously the match of the round isn't the night match, or even the featured day session match :o.
Only one women's match on Hisense :rolleyes:.
Azarenka not even on MCA :help:.

Domi will run around to her FH anyways. Caro is not gonna hit that deep it seems or with much angle.

Have you watched Caro when she plays well? She is very capable of hitting to someone's backhand with depth and angle.

No I know. :lol: I said it seems that she's not going to do it today. :p Which she hasn't so far.

I've seen Caro matches back when she wasn't even top 50.

Ryan
Jan 21st, 2011, 12:37 AM
Yeah honestly, Caroline is getting battered on her serve. Domi is fearless on the return!

Domi gave her the point, but still, if Caro wins this, opponents start getting much better

Serving has been pretty dissapointing from Caro today. Just hitting it in the middle of the box, bad seconds. Hopefully that's just a bad day, but we'll see. Great stuff at net today.

ESPN2 (not ESPN3 online) hasn't shown any footage of them warming up yet, but I was just assuming that they had started that. I think that they said that Maria discovered the dead spot, so maybe it was during the warm-up hit? :shrug: Last I saw, they were still sitting and waiting...

Good match. Too bad Julia couldn't move ahead, though it is nice to see Sharapova overcoming some of her issues.

According to ESPN 3 online streaming:
