Saw Claudine Beat Sanchez-Lorenzo
I had never seen Claudine (not even a picture) until yesterday when I watched her entire match with Sanchez-Lorenzo. Claudine impressed me. She's solid, by which I mean she doesn't make many unforced errors and she doesn't get rattled. She's very level header. She seems very calm out there. And her form is fairly orthodox. Many of the players I saw in the qualies were unorthodox in one way or another. Of all those I saw yesterday and today, Claudine and Martina Sucha impressed me the most. I also had never seen Sucha play (or even a still picture) until yesterday. She's quick, hits hard, and stays pretty calm out there.
