Beijing draw is out. Sam has a BYE in the first round and then probably Goerges in rnd 2 and Bartoli in rnd 3. Tough draw. I sense a danger match against Goerges, who always seems to play well in bigger matches(fyi, Li also has a very tough draw).
Watched the match. I think it was the first time I've ever seen her take a MTO, she needed it but - and it did nothing. She soldiered on even though she was very clearly hampered. Tried to fight it out but Nadia played very well. Shame as she had a nice shot at another title. I really hope it's not serious she still has a real shot at YEC. Casey bombed out very convincingly to Dushevina
watched the scores and she was constantly getting leads of 40-00 40-15 etc then being broken. Pretty disappointing after the form she started to show.
