Schedule Update


Posted by Texas Open on Facebook -

We are sad to learn of the recent withdrawal of Peng Shuai with a left hip injury. She is replaced by Lucky Loser Akgul Amanmuradova.

But it loses the picture and sound about every ten minutes. You'll get a blue screen with the message, "Apologies for loss of pictures." :facepalm:

Yeah, I got my first taste of it not too long ago. Oy... I hope that a better stream comes into play at some point in the week. The court, though... Looks very cramped.

Akgul-Oudin are underway. Haven't seen Melanie play since the French Open.

Stream is working better now: http://www.lshunter.tv/index.php?option=com_lsh&view=lsh&event_id=59177&tv_id=671&tid=24983&channel=0&tmpl=component&layout=popup&Itemid=327

Purple_Rain
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:06 AM
And Oudin is quick to remind me that she is as big a pusher as they come. BUT -- she can hit slice BH winners. :lol:

Purple_Rain
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:09 AM
Right on cue, she hits a slice BH pass to avoid the double bagel! 1-1 first set.

Purple_Rain
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:16 AM
Oudin 1-3*, 0-30

EDIT: Oudin *1-4, and calls for her coach. :devil:

No chatting on the stream I posted... although there was one earlier. It disappeared after 10 seconds or so.

Purple_Rain
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:27 AM
Is that Melanie saying "Come on" after her opponent's errors, or someone in the crowd? :facepalm:

Probably Melanie. She does it after every point. It's more frequent than Ana's Ajdes...

I clicked the stream you posted. There's this weird chat thing that I can't close. It says to sign in to start chatting. It's really annoying. I can't see half the screen, and I can't go full screen.

Joey Darling
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:30 AM
I've never quite understood why some players do that. I'd be proud after a winner, not after my opponent makes an error. Doesn't make sense to me.

It's a way of psyching yourself up, I guess. I think it's annoying though when it happens this much. I understand if you just saved a break point in the third set or something, but after every error in the first set, it's too much.

I can't go full screen on Firefox, but I can on Google Chrome. Maybe try a different browser?

Oudin is not even playing that badly. Compared to, say, Lisicki, she is actually quite a smart player. And her footwork remains solid. She just has no power whatsoever.

Purple_Rain
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:37 AM
Oudin breaks back. Part of me wants to root for her, but the one-liners on GM are just too funny these days. And she needs to fire her coach, which will only happen with more bad losses.

The announcer just said that Lisicki is signing autographs at 8:30. If only there were a WTA tournament close to my city. :(

Purple_Rain
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:39 AM
Oudin *2-5 --> 5-5*. :lol:

Right. That is what I was thinking. Even in the third set it can be a bit much. Actually, I think I find it more annoying in the third set.

Inger67
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:55 AM
1-1 in the TB

Inger67
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:56 AM
She is hitting the ball really well! 3-1! Come on Mel.

Inger67
Aug 23rd, 2011, 12:57 AM
And just like that, 3-3

"Come on!"

I am loving this fight that Melanie is showing. Absolutely loving it. Set one goes to Lady Feisty.

Just started watching stream. Is she playing well? :hearts:

She takes the set! 7-6. :hearts:

Purple_Rain
Aug 23rd, 2011, 01:05 AM
Oudin... wins a set? But she totally deserved it -- she's played great since *2-5. I really missed Mel's "C'mon"s these past two years.

Inger67
Aug 23rd, 2011, 01:06 AM
She is playing well actually, hitting her shots. She's being patient, some points she plays more defensive and others she takes the initiative and is moving Akgul around. This doesn't look like the girl that has been struggling to win matches the whole year.. :shrug:

Elisse
Aug 23rd, 2011, 01:12 AM
MTO for Akgul...hope she's ok, looks like a back problem..

Joey Darling
Aug 23rd, 2011, 01:16 AM
Akgul looks like she is in a lot of pain... Just a small observation.

Joey Darling
Aug 23rd, 2011, 01:18 AM
And she retires... Feel better, Akgul. :hug:

Domi on court now. I figure she'll either dominate in straight sets or retire.

Domi and Lucic trade breaks for 1-1. Domi's grunt is so funny. :lol:
