Qualy Day 3 report
I didnt see many matches today because I was only there for about an hour but I'll just write something about the 3 that I saw.
Li def Kloesel
I saw the first set and both were playing well, with solid baseline games, and never coming to the net. That was a bit surprising in the case of Li as I expected her to come into the net more being a good doubles player, and she does volley well in doubles. There were times when both of them could have won the point if they'd gone in but they never did. Li was leading 5-3 but made double faults when serving for the set, and had more set points on Kloesel's serve at 5-4 but made UE's on those points. So Kloesel levelled it and then won the TB. Woerle and Bammer were standing near me supporting Kloesel.
Nakamura def Nemeckova
The match went how I thought it would go, with Nakamura hitting hard and aggressively and dominating the points, and Nemeckova defending well. Lenka is a good counterpuncher and can hit great shots on the defense and hit a few great running backhands down the line. There were a lot of breaks in the first set, and Aiko was more consistent than i thought she would be despite her aggressive style. In the tiebreak Lenka made a few loose errors and Aiko played well. I had to leave after the first set ended.
Tu def Rao
From what I saw Tu was playing really well and not missing much. Sunitha was playing ok but made a few too many errors.
I saw only one mens match which was Djokovic def Moodie. Novak was again impressive although Moodie played crap in the last set. Novak was really happy when he won because it was his first grand slam main draw and was interviewed after the match.
