well today was much better than sunday tennis-wise 4 those of you who read my other report i did on my day here on sunday... first off i went down to the practise courts coz we were there an hour early where we found dementieva practising... of course all she was doing was serving with her coach and mum so we made fun of her grunts
she then did some smashes and volleys which werent very good...
then myskina came on the court next to her with her coach, and i understand now why myskina is the higher-ranked player coz she hits with her coach which is a hard-hitting male whereas elena hits with 40y.o. + women
anyway she looked really good in practise and was hitting the ball hard and down the line and getting it in, no fkn clue what happened in her singles match!
so then dementieva left her practise session and after a while we left myskina, who looked hot in a small blue outfit
, and walked past dementieva in complete red who was doing some kids clinic or sumthin, so we laughed at her serve again and walked off...
match 1: molik d. schiavone: we were front row so we had great seats except for hearing schiavones' grunt which sound like "fuck yeeeeeeeeeeeeee", so we paid her out for her grunt most of the time pretty loudly so if any1 heard this "eeeeeeeeee" that would be me
but molik was playing really well and did one of those cool dropvolleys that bounced on schiavone's side and then went back on to hers so they had a good little laugh ehehe
match 2: myskina loses to peng: ok i admit peng hit soem good returns but from the very start, nastya couldnt get a ball in the court! IMO she lost the match, peng didn't win it, just a match full of UFE on myskina's part... myskina and peng were even on the practise courts side by side so i dont understand how myskina went from playing so well there to so shit on centre court
well they were the 2 main matches we watched but i saw a few points of sprem vs schnyder, not very entertaining, and i saw stosur vs kostanic for a bit, sam was playing really well and good to see her getting a good win at a decent event
oh and i figured out who that girl who looked like a man was and i dont mean to offend anyone, but it was caroline dhenin who i saw play against conchi/virginia with mashona washington...
other players i saw:
* rennae stubbs practisign with some random
* hantuchova practising with another random (possibly gagliardi?)- she was hittign the ball well and drew more of a crowd than myskina and dementieva who were on the other side of the practise courts
* washington walking around
* that russian girl who beat myskina in the US Open last year
* schett as well-even though there is an article in the australian tennis magazine saying she has retired or sumthin, but i always liked her so good to see her again, most likely for the last time
i think thats bout it and im sure i saw other randoms ive neglected to mention but let me say one thing: the magazines for the tournament this year are shithouse! all they have done is whack on a cover to the australian tennis magazine
so yeh that was my day, hope it wasnt too boring 4 ya
