back from RG
Kata lost today but did a great tournament ...
doubles loss =
I don't know what happened, they were PERFECT in round 1 ...
so here's a brief "report" of what I saw
: practice session - took a pic at the end with Kata
: Kata vs Ruano - some silly Dutch people who wanted to watch Haase AFTER Kata's match were in the stands, I had NO ENTRY to the court she was playing because of them. At that moment , I HATED DUTCH people because of that cause I could not see one minute of the match
Thank God the rain arrived and interrupted the match
Later on, I was standing with friends under the Chatrier court and Kata walked pass us with Biljana so I asked her for another pic
: I just saw her practicing a little . NO match due to rain again ...
: vs Ruano ... Down 3/4* but very good recovery , close match but Kata was dominating . Winning the first set freed her totally and she took the best of Vivi "pretty easily"
: I arrived at RG not knowing Kata was playing first on court 17 so when I arrived , she was 60 34*
Makarova then lead 5/3 but Kata then won all the remaining games to beat the Russian 60 75
After the match, I went to her to say congrats , she recognized me and GAVE ME her towel (two children took it when she was trying to give it to me and she said : "NO , NO , it's for him"
- I also made her sign my ticket
- vs Serena ... I could not see it cause they played on the Lenglen and I could not find anyone to offer me their ticket so when I saw she was leading 64 32 I went under the Chatrier where I could see the end of the match on a TV screen ... I was totally anxious
and not sure she'd hold nerves but SHE DID
that definitely made my day - other people in front of the screen mst have felt I hated Serena , they would not understand I'd be so thrilled/anxious about Kata beating Serena Williams
I was like a child after the match point
(Sugiyama walked pass the screen and stopped a while to watch how Kata was going so I just said hello and wished her luck for their upcoming doubles match , she didn't stay till the end of the match . Lol @ Biljana's face at 64 54 30/0 she seemed to not believe what was gonna happen
Later I went to see Katai vs Wozniacki/Craybas and they steamrolled pass this duo . Craybas totally sucked , she was useless , and Wozniacki lacked experience to push the team up so Katai won very easily 60 61 .
I took lots of pics , obviously , and even a quick video of Kata's practicing with Bijlana , that I will try to post here later
thanks Kata for the great moments
. I might feel as I've been her lucky charm
cause when I was there to see her she won , and when I was not (yesterday doubles and today singles) , she lost
Kata will then be in s'Hertogenbosch and Wimbledon (I talked quickly with one of her friends )
