Qualifying Day 1 Report and Pictures

I will be adding to this over thread the next hour or so. Just got back from the Open. I ran around the courts a lot, so I caught bits of a bunch of matches. I did watch that Baker v. Lucic match. Lucic dominated the first set, but Baker seemed to be in better shape. It is clear that Baker has lost a lot of weight and is in very good shape. However, she is still lacking in the quickness dept. Lucic has good strokes, but does not move well. Baker really gritted this one out. Lots of people waited for her autograph after the match. And someone interviewed her. I have many pics of Baker.

Noorlander v. Cochran

Tanner Cochran was a pleasant surprise. She looked to be in good shape and has strong legs. Her upper body isn't well developed and thus, she does not possess a lot of power. Noorlander is a small woman who is seeded number 11. Cochran won the first set looking good. Then she faded and I thought she would lose. However, she fought and came out on top. I think Cochran has good potential, but she needs to hit the weights in the future.

Brandi v. Saeki

Saw a little of the Brandi-Saeki match. I've never seen Brandi play before. She hits an oddly flat ball. Refreshing in this day. She is not a star, but plays solidly with an all around game. A step above Saeki at this time.

Bondarenko - Fujiwara

I didn't watch much of this match, but I thought Fujiwara had it sewn up. Somehow Bondarenko pulled it out.

Volekova v. Tian Tian Sun

Never heard of Tian Tian Sun, but she looked good. Volekova looks a little like Hantuchova. Especially with the reed thin body. Tian Tian Sun was too much for her. Too much power.

Strycova v. Voracova

Strycova is sort of a combo between Coetzer and Hingis. She has great racquet control like Hingis, but is small like Coetzer. Watched a little of the first set of this match and it appeared to be even. Voracova didn't show much. Strycova I guess was just a little better. It is not as though Styrcova was blowing her off the court.

Wheeler v. Lefevre

Wheeler was just better. She has had some nice wins in the past and outclassed her opponent.

Robinson v. Dulon

I had high hopes for Robinson after seeing her last year. She plays smooth. However, she doesn't seem to have progressed like Baker and Cochran. Those two girls are fit. Robinson does not appear to be fit - yet. I think she has potential if she steps it up. But Dulon appeared more experienced and was much more consistent.

Robinson played on the court next to Baker. After Baker won her match, Robinson congratulated her before her match started. I thought that was nice. One of the pics attached is funny - Robinson was having trouble putting on her hat.

Keothavong

I did not watch Keothavog, although I almost bumped into her as she walked to her match. Maybe I'll take a look Thursday if I go.
