Is anyone else watching the Exhibition match between Alexandrova and Kristyna Pliskova?

I think the Tipsport Exhibition matches are being played in Prague:



The stands do have fans. They are sitting further away from each other but in one particular corner they are pretty packed in:



No masks either. Is Prague COVID free now?

Drova breadstick'd in the 2nd set by Karo. 3 losses in a row for her, damn!

Czech Republic is very dumb to do that. "Civilisation"! They are closer to Russia and the satellites now. Packed crowds for what, for their trainings?

First set all done - Kristyna hit a wonderful forehand down the line into the corner to save a break point at 30-40, then a nice cross-court forehand for the advantage, before Alexandrova found the net to make it 6-0 after 21 minutes.

Alexandrova gets the netcord and it topples over to give her 40-30 in the first game of the second set; a big winner from Kristyna gets her back to deuce, but she goes wide to give away the advantage, and Alexandrova sends down an ace to hold serve for the first time in the match.

Wonderful inside-out return from Kristyna gets a point, but Alexandrova gets another net-cord winner! She eventually hits another ace to win that game as well for 2-1.
