So proud of Tammy for not being a head case today. The way things were going, Shinobu could taste the 2nd set--I could see it in her body language.

Worst case scenario I was imagining was Shinobu winning 6-3, and leading 2-0 if Tammy didn't get a grip because she REALLY was not happy to be playing in the darkening conditions. She said of course she wanted to finish the match today, but she could barely see the ball, and this was at 2-3! They made them play another 5 games!

Maybe it was the King Power bracelet she was wearing (was she wearing it?!)...

Anyway, I know she's going to be eager to come out and win those last two games tomorrow on Court 17. Go, Tammy, go!!!!!!

At times like this, I wish I were there with her to be yelling support from the sidelines. I could hear a lot of Japanese fans telling Shinobu to "gambare."

And sorry, Shinobu, for silently chanting "double fault, double fault, double fault" because you did DF once in that last game!!!!!! But if it helped Tammy, I'd do it all again!!!!!

WIMBLEDON
TAMARINE ROLLS ON

Thai twins win their first match


Tamarine Tanasugarn and the Ratiwatana twins kept the Thai flag flying at Wimbledon with the former reaching the third round and the latter winning the first Grand Slam match of their career.

Tamarine put behind her frustration about bad light the previous night to win the delayed second-round match against Japanese Shinobu Asagoe 6-3 7-5.


After play was suspended at 6-3 5-5 on Wednesday due to failing light, Tamarine got into an argument with umpire Fiona Edwards. Her plea for a suspension of play earlier had fallen on deaf ears.


Things were different yesterday as bright sun greeted the players and Tamarine took just 10 minutes to close out the match 6-3 7-5 to reach the third round at the All England Club for the eight time.


The Thai fought a long duel at deuce with the Japanese in the 12th game and when she hit a difficult running forehand past Asagoe to set up the fourth match point, the Japanese looked completely worn out and thoroughly intimidated. She gave up the match easily with a double fault.


"I achieved what I had targeted. My ranking will not improve unless I reach round three. It's a relief to win the match because we were both a bit tense,'' said Tamarine, who apologised for getting a bit carried away on Wednesday.


"I'd never been in such a situation before. I really couldn't see the balls from 2-2 in the second set. I feel bad to have done that and I'm sorry that fans at home had to bear that on TV,'' said Tamarine, who also cleared the air with Edwards after the match.


In today's fourth round, Tamarine will take on last year's Wimbledon junior champion Agnieszka Radwanska of Poland. The Thai expects a very physical challenging match from the teenager.


"It's hard to play someone you have never seen before. But she's the junior champion and must be really good. Young players come into a match with a nothing-to-lose attitude,'' said Tamarine, who will be attempting to reach the fourth round for the seventh time.


Meanwhile, Sonchat and Sanchai Ratiwatana made the draw of a Major for the first time when Luis Horna of Peru and Juan Ignacio Chela of Argentina withdrew due to injuries. They made the most of the occasion by beating American Kein Kim and Filipino Cecil Mamiit 6-4 3-6 6-3 6-7 (7-5) 8-6 and got revenge for their loss in the final qualifying round last week.


"It's nice to win the match after waiting to play for more than a week. We are so glad to play our first match in a Grand Slam event and particularly in Wimbledon. It's unbelievable,'' said Sanchai, who had to hang around as "lucky losers" for eight days.

In the Tamarine-Asagoe match on Wednesday, the Thai won a breakthrough in the fifth game when Asagoe double faulted and then pounded a forehand into the net. Serving for the match at 5-3, Tamarine saved a break point by sending a shot to the backhand of her rival. Lady Luck smiled on the Thai as Asagoe mishit a bad bouncing ball and conceded the set.


The normally mid-mannered Tamarine displayed her emotions on court, disagreeing with the chair umpire who turned down her request for play to be delayed because of bad light. She missed shots, yelled at herself and smacked the ball high into the air after dropping her service game to fall 2-3 behind.


The Thai tried to keep her cool but to no avail. She played with pent-up anger and at times glared at the umpire and her opponent with what looked like resentment whenever she won points.


The more furious she was, the more aggressive and focused she became. She traded exciting shots with the Japanese and frantically chased the balls to escape a set point at 4-5. Asagoe then sprayed a backhand wide to drop serves and let Tamarine back in the match at 5-5 before play halted.


Andre Agassi, playing his 14th and last Wimbledon, advanced to the third round yesterday with a 6-4 7-6 (2) 6-4 win over Italy's Andreas Seppi.


The 36-year-old American, the oldest player in the men's draw, dropped serve only once - in the first game of the second set - and broke three times to subdue the 68th-ranked Seppi.


Agassi will next face the winner of yesterday's match between French Open champion Rafael Nadal and American qualifier Robert Kendrick.


Maria Sharapova, the 2004 women's champion, overpowered Ashley Harkleroad 6-2 6-2 in 67 minutes. The match was slightly tougher than her 51-minute 6-2 6-0 win the previous day over Anna Smashnova.


Meanwhile, Roger Federer looked untouchable on Tuesday as he routed four-time semi-finalist Tim Henman 6-4 6-0 6-2 on Centre Court to reach the third round, extending his grass-court winning streak to 43 matches. He dropped only seven games in his previous match against Richard Gasquet, who was coming off a grass-court tournament win in Nottingham.

Injured Tammy loses to young Pole





When Thai star Tamarine Tanasugarn asked for a trainer during her match against Wimbledon junior champion Agnieszka Radwanska, it was a sign that her time at the All England Club was running out.



Time after time the Thai scrambled to reach drop shots from the sly 17-year-old from Poland and ended up losing points. It was clear to the crowd how the match was going to end.



Although Tamarine gritted her teeth and fought off two match points at 6-3 5-1 to hold serve, her resistance did not last. The precocious Radwanska mixed lobs with short balls to serve out the match 6-3 6-2.



The injury to Tamarine's her right knee that she picked in qualifying was aggravated and pain spread to her thigh.



"It's been bothering me since the qualifying rounds, but I tried to play and take my chances. But after five matches, my condition became worse," said Tamarine, who played three qualifying matches and three more in the main draw.



A seventh fourth round birth at Wimbledon would have been much better for the 164th ranked Thai, who has been struggling to return to the top 100.



"It's disappointing to lose when I could have won the match and climbed up the rankings," she said. "If I had not been injured and had made fewer mistakes, I believe I could have beat her."



The loss was bitter-sweet for Tamarine. She was relegated to challenger level tournaments and did not win a match on the main WTA tour this year until she upset the 36th ranked Catalina Castano of Columbia here at Wimbledon in the opening round.



"The confidence is coming back," she said. "I'm glad that I proved I still can play good tennis. I just have to be really tough physically to challenge these young players," added Tamarine, who was asked if it was time to hang up her racquet.



"Not in the next two years. Before Wimbledon, I came to the crossroads and didn't know what to do next. I almost went home after I could not qualify at Birmingham.



"Now that I've reached round three, I can say that retirement is not going to happen in the near future."



Tamarine put in the best performance of the record five Thais taking part at Wimbledon this year. Paradorn Srichaphan and Danai Udomchoke had to pack their bags after the first round.



Also sharing the limelight were Thai twins and doubles specialists Sonchat and Sanchai Ratiwatana, who managed to win their first match in their Grand Slam debut before losing 6-4 6-4 6-2 to the highly experienced eighth-seeds Simon Aspelin of Sweden and Todd Perry of Australia in the second round.



"There are so many good memories here. We played our first Grand Slam at Wimbledon and we won a match," said the older Sonchat, after they defeated American Kevin Kim and Cecil Mamiit of the Philippines in the first round in five thrilling sets.



"That was the first time we won a five-set match. The green grass is classy and we could not get enough of the strawberries and cream. We will leave here with plenty to remember," the younger Sanchai added.



The twins also learned a valuable lesson - that they have to work very hard if they want to stay close to the top doubles teams.



"Physically we could not recover from the tough first round. As the second match proceeded, we became more and more tired. This is one of the aspects of our game we have to fix," said Sanchai.

It's a pity that Tammy's run had to finish in the 3rd round, but it was great to see her win 5 matches!

Go Tammy!!!

Her confident is back. After reaching Wimby 3rd round, she just entered her name to play at 50K Lexington (24 July) and 75K Washington(31 July).

Good luck Tam

So happy Tammy is continuing to play. She played a great tournament, and I think that she has really gained so much of her confidence back. Radwanska seems like a great grass court player - you would have to be to win junior Wimbledon.
I'm just glad I'll still be able to cheer Tammy on for atleast another two years.

I think Rawanska received some advice during changeover and I'm kinda disgusted by that...

Anyway, had Tammy been more healthy, she would have given a tougher fight!

Glad Tammy decided to play...

Sorry for not updating the blog for a few days guys... My new job has me working so hard I can hardly come online...

Glad Cadiac got to blog about Tammy too!

All the best to Tammy in her July season! Hopefully her leg injury would have recovered!
