Arrow 5 Jan : Courtside report and pictures

Hi everybody,
I feel better today, thanks for cold and flu medicine.
I'm now at the site. I think it would better to make some short report here because the internet conection here is so fast. (Still have many pictures to be uploaded, bad luck the internet conection at my hotel is so slow )

Reached the site at 9:00, watched Lindsay and Alicia practicing. My first time meeting Lindsay, she is a smart girl. IMO, she still have rusty hitting her groundstroke (compared to Myskina). hope she will be OK for tomorrow match. After one hour practicing, she gave an autograph and I've taken her picture. (For you Vale : Lindsay smiles when I asked for her picture, please wait until tonight.) I've taken many pictures of Lindsay during her practicing. Kucera comes and starts to hit the ball with his coach or hitting partner (I'm not sure).

Watched Kim vs Hantu match which started at 10:00. Totally I would say Kim is better player, everything is better. Move faster, hit harder, serve better and more accuracy groundstroke. Kim won very easy 6-1,6-2. Have taken a couple pictures when Kim gave an interview. Also a couple pictures of Hantu.

Now Kucera vs Xavier match just start. I will be writing more after...

have fun.

Adding report :
Did not watch Kucera vs Xavier match but watched Marat and James was practicing at court 1. Marat hitted the ball fine both FH and BH. IMO, Marat still have physical problem on his leg. He did streching a lot (by trainer) after finish practicing. Santoro's dad also watched Marat practicing. I've taken shirtless picture of Marat and got his autograph as well.

I think Marat can beat any players if he does not have physical problem. Just wait and see for today match against France in night session.

Belgium leads Slovak 2-0. Now mixed double match is playing. I have to watch mixed double match. Bye....

Adding report:
The mixed double match finished at 15:00 with Belgium won 3 : 0. The night session match will be starting at 17:30 so I catched the train to Perth city. Return back to the site again after eating some chinese food.

Watched Momo vs Myskina match, Both players hit the ball so well. Myskina played well but Momo played better. Momo played some quality tennis today even Myskina attacked her BH but Momo did not miss that much. She saved so many break points with great serve. Momo had mental stronger than Myskina and won 6-2,7-6. My first time meet both player, Momo is a handsome-girl (please believe me).

Taken picture with Drake at Autograph Island. Watched a couple game of Marat vs Santoro match because I don't want to stay longer at the site. Met Mandula before leaving the site and taken picture with her.

I will be uploading only some today's photo by now.

They showed Lindsay on the tv before practising though I don't know if it was an old shot or not.

jirobkk, does Lindsay have blonder hair than last year and is it longer?

Because that's the footage they showed of her before practising.

Yeah I saw the ceremony but this was definitely way longer than I've seen her have it in a few years

That's why I asked if she had kept the look or if she had cut it.
