How I like the days before the departure to new destinations.
- Is everything thought of?
- Photo-gear ok? Batteries charged? Lenses clear and clean?
Then, after the ultimate doublecheck, entering the car, setting up the GPS. From now on I’ll just have to obey that friendly voice, thinking, dreaming, driving.
Plenty of time is arranged, I can make rests where and as much as I want to.
If I drive through the night hours, I can stop and have a nap or two when and wherever I want.
In case of snarl-up’s I take the smaller roads. Often I prefer them anyway.
Driving the highway is to have a goal, taking the small roads is to live here and now.
“Come on! Every point!”
Normally I’m not so much into power tennis in the ladie’s game, but it’s real fun to watch those two rockets, Cibulkova and Kuznetsova, playing each other, especially given, that both are able to perform not just elephantine groundstrokes but delicious dropshots or other beauties as well. Being with Swetlana, I’m amused by the fact, that she leads by 42 in the first. 53, set point. 63. Cibulkova in front in the second. Going the distance. Cibulkova wins 36 63 64.
Kvitova vs Halep now. Wow, 61 lead for Kvitova. 62 in the second. Well, Simona had reached her goal of saving a place in the WTA finals and her strategy now probably was to spare her strength for the upcoming tasks.
Ok, well, accepted… 🙁
Stunningly clear win for Cibulkova against Pliskova.
Congrats as well for Barbora Strykova for winning in tougher three against Jelena J.
Due to the former rain delay the match between those two bundles of energy, Strycova and Cibulkova, will take place later today. Could be fun to watch.
Halep leads 64 against a dangerous Madison Keys. Two breaks, three rebreaks. Second and last set much easier, won by 62.
“When I’m happy, I play well.” (Simona H. in her post-match interview.)
Belated birthday wishes to Kimiko Date-Krumm, who turned 46 yesterday and is still planning for the 2017 season!
Congrats as well to Kvitova for winning that marathon-match against Kerber.
Did Karolina W. give the win to her close friend Agnieska R. freely?
Now against Swetlana K. After a boring 61 the second is a thriller, ending in an entertaining tiebreaker, won by the russian by 11 9. Incredible third set, incredible win by Kusnetsova. WOW!
