I went to the first two days of the FCC, saw Alina beat Fedak, lose a three set heartbreaker to Yoshida, and then I drove home thinking she was out of the tournament.

I would agree, but Alina has not played much since Charleston. So 4 or 5 matches, assuming Alina doesn't play singles after Wednesday, is okay.

At her new rank next week of #76, she is 14 spots away from tieing her career high of #62

Hiraki/Jidkova vs. Dominikovic/Irvin
Women's Doubles: First Round
Court 6

The waifish pairing of Japan's Rika Hiraki and Russia's Alina Jidkova looked physically overmatched as they took the court to face powerfully built qualifiers Evie Dominikovic and Marissa Irvin. Indeed, it was Jidkova surrendering the match's first service break, falling behind 2-3 when Dominikovic tucked away a winning volley. The Aussie-American combo nearly added a second break, but Hiraki fought off a pair of break points to 3-4. As soon as that game was over, Alina Jidkova jogged off the court to take a bathroom break. Marissa Irvin was livid. "Does she have to do this every match I play against her? Literally every time," she complained to chair umpire Anne Lassere-Ullrich. "Either she has the world's smallest bladder, or... It's so irritating! She has her period every friggin' week." (Note: the last time Jidkova and Irvin met was at the Los Gatos challenger in July. Irvin won that singles semifinal in straight sets.)

Irvin looked unnerved and she played like it in the next game, badly whiffing on a routine forehand. Dominikovic couldn't help but smile as Irvin helplessly stared at her racquet. Marissa dropped serve, tying the set at 4 games apiece. Jidkova held for 5-4 and a winning return by Hiraki brought up set point. Irvin then sent a backhand volley long and shook her head, looking genuinely distraught as she walked back to her chair. The young Californian let her emotions get the best of her in a 6-4 loss of the opening set.

Some big serving by Evie Dominikovic got the qualifiers back on track. They took a 4-1 lead in the second set as Jidkova began chiding herself in a foreign tongue. Little Rika Hiraki was the most emotionally stable player on the court and was also playing the most consistent tennis. She struck a winning volley to get one of the breaks back for 2-4. Jidkova held at love for 3-4 and it looked as if her team might pull off another come-from-behind escape in a set. Irvin twice faced break point (after a double fault and a netted volley) in Game 8, but clawed her way out of trouble. An exquisite drop volley by Dominikovic gave her and Irvin a 5-3 lead. Two games later, the Aussie blasted a service winner to wrap up a 6-4 win of the set.

The possible gamesmanship went to another level before the third set. Hiraki and Jidkova both sprinted off the court for a bathroom break while Dominikovic called out the trainer. "Evie D" had her right leg examined and treated, but there was never so much as any tape on it and she appeared to be moving just fine. She and Irvin finally got back out on the court and took a 4-0 lead in the final set. They were still making some errors, but their aggressive play was paying off. Hiraki and Jidkova battled back to 2-4, but had a bit of a mishap on an important point in Game 7. Up 40-30, Jidkova called Hiraki off a ball which was clearly closer to Rika. Alina ripped a backhand long and immediately said, "sorry sorry." With Irvin continuing her trend of smacking volleys right at Jidkova (coincidence?), the qualifiers broke serve for a 5-2 lead. Dominikovic took care of business from there, driving home a deep service winner on match point. "That was in?!?" pleaded Alina Jidkova, to no avail. Chalk up a wild 4-6, 6-4, 6-2 win for Evie Dominikovic and Marissa Irvin.

:haha:

Go Marissa and Alina.
