Hi, just back from DFS, and she had no strapping on today, still she played patchy and just got thru in final game.

Marion played not bad too, she nearly came back to 5-5 from 2-5*
Elena was the one who dictated play, but Marion is very handy on grass taking ball early and moving in a few times to volley.

So is the first set more of an indication of Elenas lapse in concentration like yesturday.

Also was Elena tossing the ball too far in front of her for the serve again today. I'm not techincal expert when it comes to tennis, but the toss seemed percuilar to me yesturday.

Marion played very good in set 1, was up *4-1, Elena got it back to 3-4 , she settled more in 2nd and made less errors.
Marion was pretty good all way thru, played solid, Elena did make some really bad errors on FH.
nearly blew match as well
had 15-0 and had open court to hit FH from midcourt after letting ball bounce from a defensive Bartoli lob and put it in net, and got out of 15-40.

Hi Eggy :wavey:

Did you saw Anna practise? How was she doing before her injury?

I only saw Anna briefly on the Monday when she came out to practice but i didn't see her practice though as i was going to see Maria.
Heard there was some unruly people there and alot of Press, Also Anna was heard to be crying in the players lounge after her practice had to be curtailed due to injury.

She left soon after.
i'm in Internet Cafe so haven't got much time to explain stuff, too much LOUD MUSIC in this one (a club as well :eek:)

it was her right leg not left ;)
she certainly did say something to Elena
that was in final game of match which got Marion to 2 break pts, Elena looked up at her mother and Eric Van Harpen and asked them if they thought the ball was out when it was called in.
Marion just came up with a few words, couldn't hear properly from where i was but seemed like she was making a point telling Elena to believe the linejudge and not her mother, anyway Elena got mad and won 4 pts in a row to win match and shut Marion up for good :p
it was nothing really, they still had a good handshake at end.
