Heard Nicole being interviewed. Apparently Farina had a bad shoulder and the loss wasn't a surprise. Nic practices with Laura sometimes so knows her game and vice versa.
Lets hope the weather is HOT.
Nicole still seems to have trouble consolidating her leads. She had a break against Morigami and let it slip and then had to battle back again and again. The last couple of years this has been a trait in her game mainly due to her not having a big weapon to close things out.
Granville is expected to win ranking wise. Hopefully Nic plays w/o pressure and takes her opportunities.
There's more to life than just being happy.
