Thanks for the pics Jiro! <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0">

I wish Mi-Ra would take off her cap for once. She's so pretty, it's a pity we don't get to see her more often. <img src="wink.gif" border="0">

Remi and Satomi look very different from other pics I've seen of them. BTW, are they nice? <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

Thanks for the pics Jiro. And this time, no problem at all to see them, even in the evening <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> .

I hope you could see Stéphanie win her match, even if it was certainly very short <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" /> .

Today is very hot day. First I watched Suchanan VS no.3 seeded Hisamatsu. I would not say Hisamatsu played better than Suchanan even she has higher ranking. Both girls hitted the ball so well from the best line. Suchanan lead 4/2 and 5/1 in the 1st and 2nd set but she could not win the 1st set. It's kind of she played up and down. She lost the 1st set 7/5 but won the 2nd 6/4. Hisamatsu is a short and small girl, she played both forehand and backhand with 2 hands. It's no doubt that she has more experience than Suchanan, she also hitted high moon ball when she was forced to hit runnig shot. The crowd are behind Suchanan but she could not much take advantage of that. She have 1 match point in the 10 games of the 3rd set when she lead 5/4 but could not took it. Hisamatsu save the match point with sharp angle crosscourt forehand and took that game, score 5/5 all. Suchanan could not rally ground stroke well the last 2 games, she look so tired and finally Hisamatsu won 7/5,6/4,7/5. The match time was almost 3 hours. Playing in hot day and 3 hours match time I think the physical fitness is very important. I would say Hisamatsu has more better physical fitness than Suchanan. And Suchanan's coach should pay more attention and more focus on her physical fitness.

Next I saw Marina Caiazzo Vs Mi-Ra Jeon match. Ciaazzo came from qualify and she impressed me very much. She is very talented player. She moved well and hit one hand backhand with slice and top spin. She won 1st set in tie break and lost the 2nd set. As I told you today is very hot day Mi-Ra was forced to retired because she have got cramp.

I also saw Widjaja VS Kim E-S match. It's no problem with her, Widjaja easily won 6/1,6/0 even she got ill. I knew because I want to take her photo after the match but I could not catch her. Some player told me that she got ill and go back to the hotel. I also saw Widjaja's name appeared in the comittment list of Exhibition Match in Hong Kong. And I asked her coach. He told me, yes she will play.

Danker both Remi and Satomi are very nice. Both came with her coach, Satomi coach by Japanese and Remi coach by some American(I am not sure but not japanese.) I always enjoy to talk to them with Japanese. I could not catch Chisayo Ito because she's already came back.

Remi lost in 3 set set ,she cried and look so up set after the match. She have many chance to win the match because she lead 4/1 in 3rd set. That picture I took after she stop crying.

<br />Napaporn Tongsalee

Thank you for telling me about typing mistaken or some error posting of the score. It would be nice if you could tell me in more detail because I could not found that error. Please !

The boiledEgg ! <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> <br />Are you Ivana's fan. She won double in semi-final today. She will play double final tomorrow againt Mi-Ra Jeon(KOR)/Manisha Malhotra(IND). <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />

She came here with her coach(her father). She look absolutely the same her father. Her father told me that Ivana used to have ranking around 300 but after that she have got injured. This year she play only 5 tournaments and her ranking is drop around 700. She and her father are very nice and friendly. <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" />

I try to take Yuliana's picture for you if I catch her. <img src="eek.gif" border="0">

Today I went there to see only Paradorn VS Lee match. Paradorn played extremly well and beated Lee 6/1,6/1.

TheboiledEgg, <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> I've taken Yuliana for you. Ivana's father introduced me to Yuliana and her coach. She is a small girl and very nice when I asked for picture. Unfortunately she lost to Marina today. <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

Danker, <img src="eek.gif" border="0"> Sorry for Mi-Ra, She and Molhotra lost in double final. <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />

Steveg, <img src="biggrin.gif" border="0"> I have a chat with Stephanie and Arnaud. I told them you say hello and They still remember you. I asked Arnaud that you are Julie Halrad's husband (spelling not sure). He said, yes, my wife is pregnant now and will have a birth soon. I told him congratulation. I also have taken their pics for you as well.

Sorry for Ka-Po ! <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" /> As I told you today my company have sport day and I left the tournament site around 11:30 am after Paradorn VS Lee match. I saw Ka-Po practicing and wait for awhile to say hello to her. I think Ka-Po came here with her coach and hitting partner as I saw. I say hello and cogratulation to her of yesterday's match againt Napaporn. I also gave her URL of <a href="http://www.wtaworld.com" target="_blank">www.wtaworld.com</a> ( I also gave to Ivana's father and Arnaud) and told her to check her picture and tournament report in the webboard. I asked her for the picture she said later after the match. Finally I've not taken her picture. I have some experience when I asked for players picture, I think it would better to ask for the picture before they play the match or finish practicing. That experience happened to me when I wanted to take Tammy's photo at Pattaya, I talked to her before she played Poutchek but I did not ask her for picture. Finally she lost the match and she look so up-set and hurry leave the court. And I think it would better for not having ask players picture after they lost the match. Remi Tezuka also cried after she lost to Satomi Kinjo. For today, Even I be there after Ka-Po VS Stephanie match, I would not having ask her for the picture. Sorry for that.

For tomorrow final, I would love to see Marina Caiazzo win the match. I saw her play againt Mi-Ra, she impressed me very much and I think she have potential to beat Stephanie. Stephanie also played well but just my feelin that Marina will win the title. She is very friendly and very nice person, please believe me. <img src="graemlins/wavey.gif" border="0" alt="[Wavey]" /> <img src="graemlins/bounce.gif" border="0" alt="[Bounce]" />

<br />Yuliana Fedak

<br />Stephanie and Arnaud

Hello Jiro and thanks for the pics. However, I am having problems with my server again.

Could you please kindly send the pics of Stephanie + Arnaud to my attention?

If you could also send me the one of Marina, I would greatly appreciate.

As for the result of the final, let's wait until tomorrow <img src="wink.gif" border="0"> .

BTW, did you win today during your sporting events.

If there are more and more players connecting onto this site, we'd better be careful about what we write <img src="graemlins/angel.gif" border="0" alt="[Angel]" /> .

But it would be good if players / coaches started to write here and give some additional information on tennis matches / tournaments. <br /> <img src="smile.gif" border="0">

You said the right thing, Steveg that we should be careful what we write if there are more players and coachs see the webboard. I will not tell the players and coachs any more. <img src="graemlins/sad.gif" border="0" alt="[Sad]" />
