Re: Birmingham Reports & Pics

REPORTS
Ruutel v Esperon : Margit improved so much since the few months earlier I had seen her. She has a good game on grass definitly, better than on clay.
She's very good at the net.
Esperon isn't bad but doesn't have the skills Ruutel had and she doesn't have the right attitude neither...
Good fighting spirit from Margit, solid win.

Vinci vs Gajdosova : What a miss from Vinci, leading 5/3 40/00 final set, and being broken stupidly...Then Gajdosova started to believe again, and saved two other match points in the final set tie break and won 9/7 in the final tie break...She didn't even seem to be happy with it!
Vinci plays amazing tennis on grass, while Gajdosova just hit the ball and wait for something to happen (like always, yeah )
But great win for her confidence.

Fedossova vs Luzhanska : I was looking forward this match to discover an Ukrainian again, and I was very disappointed. There was no contest, and the match was poor. Tetiana was missing everything, Fedossova just had to wait for it. Fedossova won 61 62.

Klepac vs Broady : Well this is an upset, but when you see how agressive and successful Broady was
Plus, Klepac was moaning and complaining all match long, and Broady was on fire. She choked a little at some point in the second set, but won in straight! Amazing serve and the backhand of Broady is just WOW
So an upset yeah, but in terms of game today, Broady was just amazing.

Shvedova vs Pavlovic : Yarolsava won but Pavlovic globally dominated.
The Shvedova's coach is one of the most annoying, commenting every single point. The Pavlovic's mother was annoyed too
Irena has such an amazing double-handed forehand
Shvedova was saved by her abality to serve/volley very well.
Pavlovic is a mentally.

Fujiwara vs Gullickson : Horrible match full of mistakes, and Gullickson's grunt is awful. She well tried to go to the net, but she definitly shouldn't have. Fujiwara is just one of these Japaneses running everywhere and winning on her fitness and her few mistakes.

Poutchek vs Glatch : Well, Tatiana hasnt learnt playing tennis yet. But she's such a bitch. She threw her racket after having lost the first point, I love that
She was leading comfortably then blew the second set just by herself, then was 0-2 down final set then won 6 games in a row.
Actually, her approximatives shots and mentality help her well on grass, especially the sliced forehand.
Glatch is just Good serve, good backhand, but unable to play a forehand, and she just went into Poutchek's yelling & racket threwing attitude instead of playing her game.
Poutchek, after having kicked herself the leg with the racket after missing an overhead, ketp the mark of the shot she made herself on her leg all match long and seemed to suffer of it

Namigata vs Adamczak : Adamczak just played soft balls all around, and Namigata was just overpowered after one or two shots, and her serve is
But I was impressed by Adamczak

Schultz vs Dzehalevich : Brenda has a new fan...MENG YUAN
This match wasn't good at all...It was all about who would be the biggest bitch. Basically, Dzehalevich spent all the final set on the floor, sliding on the wet grass (rain was there during a few minutes) and yelling, kicking herself...
Brenda is very good on grass of course, but missed so much at the net...She just made Dzehalevich mad, and managed to very well.

Kops-Jones vs Iijima : Raquel is very impressive, I thought she was Sequera at the beginning. She hits very powerful groundstrokes and serves well.
Iijima is very very bad indeed.

Stosur vs Pavly : Samantha won this match because it was on grass, nothing more...She was complaining all match long (Nastya even more ) and was saved by her strong serve and her good volleys.
Big (fat) Raymond was cheering for her.
Pavlyuchenkova plays well, but needs to learn to volley well during the WHOLE match. She was too fragile mentally. The very first games of the final set were very tight, and were actually decisive.

Kulikova vs Coin
: A no-story match. Coin plays not badly, but not well neither. She just hits the ball back.
Kulikova is . She is this kind of blond girl that you wanna give her something to eat before she falls on the ground
She had a poor sports bag and a very old Head raquet, and was coached by a hot guy wearing a suit
I wanna see more of her tomorrow.

Rao vs Smith : Mini-Mirza was just too good for the very thin British girl.
Too nervous and too weak technicly.

Scheepers vs Jozami : Betima had never seen grass before right ?
She even tried to slide on it, it was nice...to see her falling
At the end, she made her Brie Whitehead, just hitting the ball like a 8-yr old would have done.
Chanelle AMAZING game, very complete! So good at the net...
She's definitly my favorite so far.

MD Players : I saw training and/or walking around
Bammer, Liezel Huber, Lisicki, Paszek, Bremond, Govortsova, Yuan, Mattek, Stubbs, Cavaday, Baltacha, Krajicek, Bartoli, Rezai...

Not impressed with poor Kumiko Iijima?

In all the reports I read, no one is impressed by her.

Re: Birmingham Reports & Pics

Did anyone see during the Stosur - Pavlyuchenkova match that Wickmayer was there sitting on the side reading a magazine. Found that very amusing.

Unfortunately, she's had a really off day everytime someone's seen her play.

I've seen her play on 2 occasions, and although she didn't win those matches, they were competitive.
