Waiting…..

It started raining/drizzling after the Rafa/Gonzo match.  But apparently, they are drying off the courts now but it is still a very light drizzle so hopefully the women’s first semi final will be able to get underway.

Meanwhile, Kim-C uploaded a few photos from her website, kimclijsters.be <<If you wanna check them all out.

No matches were played today as heavy rainfall drenched the courts.  I think this will teach the players a lesson as to stop saying they don’t need a frickening roof.

I got up at 4am to watch it to be pissed off and waited till 6 for 30minute updates.  I was ecstatic the night before as i was briefly looking at was on my free to air channels (don’ t have fox 😦 boo) to see the tennis.  They kept showing live cross backs to Flushing Meadows and Ashe looked like a swimming pool (literally)

us5So yer. It is screwed up and they kept on saying they may play the Gonzo/Rafa match until they decided it was never going to stop so here are todays drenched and blow dryed out photos. Lol.

The players practiced on indoor courts as the rain kept on coming.

Coolness in Cincy

Awesome things happened in Cincy as well as Montreal so here goes:

  • Kim made her return FINALLY!
  • Ana Rere and Vee got out woo!
  • And other awesome stuff too!

Dinara Safina Defeated Kim Clijsters 6-2   7-5

 

YAY fro dina and NOOOOOOOOOOOO for Kim.  I have so enjoyed watching her and her comeback it has been awesome!

 So it was an All Safina first set until Kim re grouped and made a small comeback.  Dina’s shit serve got the best of her and Kim raced to a 4-2 lead!  But Dina broke back.  I think it was because of Dina’s pace of the ball and strength and placement of shots that got Kim today.

Will be an interesting match next time they meet when Kim will have re grouped and know her weaknesses and target them!
