I watched the 1st set. Was I wearing a red T-shirt? But as soon as it became visible that Tanya is not a match for Lena I left.
But let`s begin from the very beginning. This day wasn`t as good as was the 1st, but anyway I enjoed it. The 1st match I`ve seen was Vera vs. Martina. Funny that both girls came to the court wearing exactly the same clothes. But otherwise they were not a bit similar. Vera simply overpowered Martina. But she wasn`t that good when I wanted to talk to her.
Many girls - Nastya, Alyona, Lina, Nadya - are very easy to speak. But Vera was a different matter. She is too serious. But I guess this is just one weak point of hers.
Then came the shock. When I finished with Vera I went to look upon the scores and found out that Alyona actually was down 3:6, 0:4
I hurried to the court and when I got there it was already 0:5 in the 2nd. I don`t know how Alyona had played before that moment, but next three games she played brilliantly. The crowd was totally behind her, but after winning 3 games in a row she made two crusial mistakes and that was enough for the Spanish girl to hold her serve. That was the shock - my favourite player went out in the 1st round
In fact there was not much I could ask Alyona after the match, so I just tried to find some words to comfort her and asked very few questions. She confirmed that her foot no longer bothers her (that`s a good news actually
) but she missed the rhythm as her praparation for RG was spoiled. She also said that she would definetely play the grass season.
Then I went to the Bovina - Golovin match. Behind me was sitting Misha Youzhny with his coach and with a friend. But the match wasn`t that interisting, so soon many including me have left. That`s almost all. I also watched a bit of Chang and a bit of Kuerten matches and the 1st set o Nastya`s match vs. Monica
So here I am. Two days have gone. Sorrow and joy have mixed up.
