After a tight, see saw first set that saw Chirico break to an early lead, Alves come back to lead 4-3, then Chirico rally to overcome Maria-Fernanda in the waning stages of the set to win, she raced to a 5-0 lead in set 2 before coasting across the line for the easy win.

Kuhlman and Elie played a long three setter on the stadium court. I went to watch the final set of that after Lo-lo's match, and saw Elie close out the 2nd set before Kuhlman raced to 5-0 lead in set 3. At that point, Elie found new life and closed to 3-5 before Kuhlman closed it out.

El Tabakh-Buchina was very one sided. 6-1 6-1 was the final, and Heidi was never threatened. It was 5-0 before Buchina got a game, and 6-1 3-0 before she got on the board in set 2. I'm not sure, but I don't recall Heidi facing break point in the match. I thought it would be closer--I watched Buchina practice for about 45 minutes in Vero and thought she had pretty solid strokes, and a good serve. I thought she'd make it a closer match, but El Tabakh was too dominant.

This morning, as I was watching the Chirico-Alves match, one of the tournament workers came up to me while I was standing between court 5 and the walkway to the "VIP" viewing area for the stadium court and asked if I was going to watch "the Canadian girl Heidi" play. I grinned and told her "yes, she's one of my favorites, but she plays second" and the lady kept going on and on about how beautiful Heidi was and how I had to see her play. She kept asking me all day in between matches if was going to or had seen Heidi play. She didn't really have to make that hard of a pitch....

I saw quite a bit of the second set of Dinu-Thorpe. I see from Meelis' results that Dinu came back to win in three, but at the time I had to go she was down a set, had fought back from 3-5 to deadlock the second set at 5-all after taking a medical T/O for treatment on her neck, and had been exclaiming a lot in Romanian about the crappy state of her game (I am guessing). At least, she was gesturing a lot and giving a ton of sour looks to her coach. The match kind of looked a little like Hampton v Paszek, if you squinted a lot.
Nice report And funny story about Heidi. She's gorgeous and I do really believe she has the game to do decent on tour but she's so mentally up and down.

Thanks for the report about Valentini, I'm glad she beat a top 100 junior player

I don't know if it's that she's "mentally" up and down, but as Laura Sigemund's coach said during their match last week in Vero, Heidi has a big game but it is very high risk. When she is on, she can play with most anyone, and she really can. When she is off, well....

I guess that's part of why I like her. Her style of play appeals to me, as I play with the same attitude. Obviously, playing it a little safer might win her a few more points.

But she has a huge serve, major league groundies. Perhaps her footwork and movement could be improved, but with some hard work, she could easily compete at WTA level. I think she's also been beset by some ill-timed injuries that have killed her progress just when she was building momentum in the rankings a couple of times.
