OMFG the umpiring in Jess' match today was completely shit!
She led 5-0 in both the first and second sets and sort of tightened up whilst Chang (who's a good player) hit more freely...
At 5-1 Jess was serving, she hit a forehand on the line and the line judge (who was unsighted) called it out. The crowd all booed and Jess argued with the umpire. He gave her a code for ''verbal obscenity.'' She was so mad with him, he tried to talk to her after the match and she just worked away
She was too strong and consistent for Chang today. I think Chang is better than Lertcheewakarn, so Jess should do okay tomorrow.
Brittany led and had 3 match points. I just don't think she believes in herself enough as she has a good game, but used the slice far too much - to no avail. Noppawan has a really average serve but fierce groundstrokes and she stayed calm even when behind 1-6 2-5. Jess should beat her comfortably tomorrow though
