Hi...Im a day late, oops.

I don't think I'll do any match reports as there are already some excellent reports done in here...so I thought I'd just offer my observations on players etc and report on some goss ;)

I didn't go today as I had a pretty big night and couldn't be bothered when I woke up, not to mentioned the fact I got a rather sunburnt face yesterday and my pores need some TLC...I'll endeavour to go tomorrow.

OK here we go:

Most of the Aussie WC girls (except Adamczak, Breadmore, Cupac and Horiatopoulos) were a joke and got their asses handed to them on a silver platter....Adriana Barna has homicidal tendencies, Mervana Jugic-Salkic is a very impressive player and I finally got to see this enigma, Daja Bedanova is off the planet in her own little world, Meilen Tu is a little cutie, Anne Keothavong = streaky as all fuck, Barbora Strycova is still a little firecracker I like this girl!! :D, Tatiana Poutchek v Lenka Nemeckova = never ending rallies, Tzipora Obziler v Elena Tatarkova = never ending rallies. Yawn. Tian Tian Sun is going places, Lara Giltinan is the WORST player ever, Lleyton Hewitt's mum reminds me of a wrinkled extra from Prisoner Cell Block H (Jon, remember Lil Stokes?), Jennifer Hopkins is gorgeous, Maria Kirilenko was not all that impressive but SUCH A CUTIE, Marie-Eve Pelletier has the most annoying Aussie female coach ever...one is like SHUT UP WOMAN, Angela Haynes smacks the ball as hard as anyone, Olga Barabanschikova is the friendliest player ever, even after a loss was happy to chat with fans rather than behave like a sour faced cow...rada can tell you more about this :), Roberta Vinci doesn't seem to play well on Rebound Ace but if the tour was on grass, hello, we have a winner.

*break*

Nicole Pratt is so into Christina Wheeler, Sarah Stone wishes she was so into Christina Wheeler, Mark Woodforde's hair is less red but he's still as ugly as sin, someone (I forgot who, was it Liggan?) was wearing an old Amy Frazier outfit and I had to take a moment, Sybille Bammer's kid is a real cutie with energy to burn...poor mum was getting ready to play her match but had to chase the kid who was hiding and running away under the seats, Ruxandra Dragomir-Ilie (watching the Vanc match) also had a pram with her...I imagine a kid was in it. I didnt know she was a mother :confused: Someone needs to tell the organisers, that yes, people do go to qualifying (lots of people in fact) and they need to get their ATM's WORKING!!! :mad: Thank you bello for lunch, you know Im buying you lunch on Tuesday :angel: *cough*

Where was I?

Evgenia Koulikovskaia's two forehands never get boring to watch, strangely compelling even if she was getting her ass kicked. Someone reduced poor Svetlana Krivencheva to tears, Adriana Barna v ROberta Vinci = World Championshop Wrestling, one complained LOTS (Barna), one called the other a slut in Italian (Vinci), one threatened to smash a ball at the others camp (Barna) ahhh :lol:, if Janet Lee loses any more weight Im afraid she'll disappear, Kaia Kanepi hits the ball HARD...if she stays healthy, top 100 here we come, Janette Husarova is looking fit and ready to go, Rita Kuti Kis isn't (looking fit that is), Ludmila Skavronskaia walked past me and is twice my height, she politely said sorry when she bumped into me...she could have just picked me up and thrown me 100 meters but no, she was nice and charming. Jarmila Gajdosova is a very impressive kid, and Marissa Irvin is in no (wo)mans land, Natalie Grandin is still rather, um, large, but such a talented lefty and nice to watch, Christina Horiatopoulos is such a cutie you just want to pinch her cheeks, Jaslyn Hewitt has taken to swearing in Swedish, Monique Adamczak is one of the hardest hitters I've seen ranked outside the top 250, Dubravka Cupac is a fine young player with lots of spunk and a bright future ahead...and, well that's it!!!

Thanks for the report Terry! :kiss:

Glad you got to see some of Jennifer H and Meilen. Yes, they are lookers. :hearts:

Sounds like the Barna - Vinci match was a real doozy but I didn't know you knew Italian? ;)

Now that's a report that I really like!!!!! :lol:

Did Nicole and Christina exchange looks during the tense moments??
Did it look like Nicole was riding (no pun intended) every bump with her?
Was Sarah Stone SMS'ing (new-age stalking) Christina?
I heard Lara has a tendency to hit forehands into the back fence. True/Untrue
Did Amanda Grahame show any emotion when she got wiped??
Has Grandin been taking training tips off DeSwaardt?

C'mon details!!!

Great!!! Maybe Marie-Eve's coach is annoying, but it seems like she is working!

Yes, his italian translator was very skillful indeed!!!!!!!

The Vinci camp wasnt too impressed with Barna at all, in fact they bitched about her as walking off from the court, "what was her F**king problem" is the best transklation!!!

Thanks. :lol:

Lots of comments on Adriana Barna ;) - but no one can explain how she wasted that 4-0 lead in the 3rd set. :mad: :shrug:

Roby v Adriana was awesome :D The look Roby gave her when she complained for the umpteenth time in one game was priceless.

loulou! - OK, Nicole Pratt was rugged up in her towel (why, was she sweating?) in a top corner of the stands...she looked rather bored...clapped a few times etc etc...remained calm... then threw in a few wolf whistles ;) haha

As for Sarah...she was sucking up to Nicole Arendt during the match, and when she didn't get nowhere with her, no doubt turned her attention to 'Wheels'. Too late Sarah.

No, Lara didn't hit any into the back fence (that I saw)...but does the side fence count?

Amanda? Emotion? :lol:

Grandin rocks! :D About time someone continued on the Mariaan legacy.

TS thanx for the elaboration :) Im pissing myself laughing here!

As for Nicole - it sounds like Wheeler's game is mirroring hers. You know the saying: couples who live together begin to look like each other!

God Sarah.... from Samantha Stosur to Nicole Arendt!! Thats like going from Crown Lager to Tooheys Blue!

Nicky Pratt an el-cabello-dyko? Of course! She's a MAN, baby! Nicky and Mark Woodforde could almost be sisters. :lol:

I think Dubravka owes someone some money for the little ass-smoochies at the end there. ;) :p

hehe, I didn't see this before....very skillful indeed ;)

Guys, thanks for the feedback but unfortunately there won't be anymore qualifying reporting as I didn't go to the final two rounds...I was going to go today but something else came up :angel:

Bring on the main draw I guess :)

macmillan & Paul - By streaky I meant that Anne can really impress on a few instances, but then leaves you scratching your head on other occassions. I didnt see much, but I think she's a good player, but a tad headcase-y. She's one of the better British players I've seen in a long time however (but, yeah, not much to compare her with, trust me I know...I follow the Aussies too).

Experimentee - Beats me ;) I started the rumour over a year ago, and what I say goes! I'm never wrong in these instances...I mean, hello! They're inseperable :hearts:

crazillo - I have no idea...she was walking back to the locker room and was in tears with her coach, saying something about someone...I felt bad for her.

Fantastic - the cheques in the mail :lol:

:wavey:
