Gibbs vs Capra
Watching this match itself was worth the trip
Saw Capra play for the first time (Capra? The Legendary filmmaker Frank???
Capra is a smart player. Can utilize moon balls when in pinch, can effectively use angles to create an open court. Seems there is a 'Capra Zone', angled near net-side of the ad court. She nails a sharp back-hand to that spot, and when the opponent returns a weak & short ball, attack it with volley. Pretty effective. Serve
was good too, producing aces from time to time.
She also had a habit of conversing with the wall
and sure had temper too.
Poor racket, it was bruised many times
Gibbs was consistent, in that she sent the ball deep, whenever in offense or defense, not giving Capra easy chances for a putaway. Moreover I was MUCH impressed with her ROS. I dunno whether she read Capra's serve particularly, or she reads opponents' serve well generally, but she was pretty effective. Her aggressive ROS created many favorable chances. She was often waiting way inside the baseline when countering Capra's 2nd serve (of course if Capra managed to return HER ROS, she scuttled back
Anyway, an highly entertaining game.
