ORDER OF PLAY – TUESDAY, MARCH 16, 2010

STADIUM 1 start 12:00 noon
[4] A Murray (GBR) vs M Russell (USA) – ATP
Not likely! Eh!

Not Before 2:00 PM
[16] N Petrova (RUS) vs [2] C Wozniacki (DEN) – WTA
T de Bakker (NED) vs [7] A Roddick (USA) – ATP

Not Before 5:00 PM

F Lopez (ESP) / F Verdasco (ESP) vs [WC] M Lopez (ESP) / R Nadal (ESP) – ATP-Possible Court Change

Okay total hotness on the court and I had nosebleed seats. However, a lovely lady gave us 4 seats which were just enough for me and my new friends I had met earlier. They were courtside and seriously it has never looked so damn good. Was pulling for Nando/Feli ’cause they both lost singles. Although they lost, it was a very fun match and allowed for all kinds of perving. Team Hot as Hell was the best thing I have experienced thus far.

Not Before 7:30 PM

[1] R Federer (SUI) vs [27] M Baghdatis (CYP) – ATP

Just caught the last few games when I returned to the hotel but had a feeling Fed was going to go down. No major surprise or cause to panic as Bodo suggests.

Not Before 9:00 PM

C Suarez Navarro (ESP) vs [23] A Kleybanova (RUS) or [14] K Clijsters (BEL) – WTA

STADIUM 2 start 11:00 am
[5] A Radwanska (POL) vs [11] M Bartoli (FRA) – WTA

Not Before 12:00 PM[28]
F Lopez (ESP) vs [6] R Soderling (SWE) – ATP

This match reminded me of Roddick vs Feli in Oz ’10; you know it was important for Feli to win the opening set, when he didn’t, it seemed inevitable he would lose. The fight just went out of him, plus Sod was hitting the fuzz off the ball.

[9] J Tsonga (FRA) vs [24] A Montanes (ESP) – ATP[3] -it takes Tsonga way to long to get started and gave Montanes a bit of hope that was slightly off putting. But he cleaned it up in the 2nd set, though sadly I had fled to catch Robredo vs Sela. Man I would love to sit all the way through a Tsonga match, but I get too frustrated.

M Martinez Sanchez (ESP) vs [13] Y Wickmayer (BEL) – WTA

Not Before 4:00 PM
N Almagro (ESP) vs J Blake (USA) – ATP

Caught this match at the end of the day. Ooh the crowd for this match was ridiculously loyal to Blake. So funny how Blake’s matches inspire fans to give him advice or try and soothe him. One woman kept moaning after each point, I almost turned around and asked if she needed a moment. I was not invested in either player, though I leaned a bit towards Blake ’cause I just want him to do well. I am like one of those ladies: “we are pulling for you. We are with you!”

STADIUM 3 start 11:00 am
[19] A Rezai (FRA) vs [4] E Dementieva (RUS) – WTA
[12] V Zvonareva (RUS) vs [8] S Stosur (AUS) – WTA
S Greul (GER) vs [22] J Melzer (AUT) – ATP

[18] T Robredo (ESP) vs D Sela (ISR) – ATP
Tommy really played well and took this match fairly easily. Stadium not crowded, so had my pick of seats and only twinges of regret when I heard the cheers from Tsonga’s matches. Did meet Jen whom I later shared those courtside seat with for the hot doubles.

[17] S Peer (ISR) vs S Errani (ITA) or [6] J Jankovic (SRB) – WTA
