USO Day Two: A Good Day For My Girls

Posted by gauloises1 on September 2, 2009

Have to take a moment before I crash to give some love to a few of my favourites on the WTA side who won today.

Sorana Cirstea demolished Ayumi Morita of Japan in straight sets and looked fairly good doing it, in all senses.


Licky had a tough ask against Aravane Rezai, especially considering she’s been out with a shoulder injury, but came through in three sets in a match that was one of my favourites from today. Beautiful ball-striking.


Tough loss for Rezai, but there was some real warmth at the net and Licky bowed to the crowd in a frankly adorable fashion.

Oh, and JJ got some revenge on Roberta Vinci who nearly beat her in Marbella, rolling through in straights. Sadly the design lives, but thankfully the yellow has died.

    Yay Sorana, Sabine, and JJ! And thank God that dress is red.

    Yes, those are my insightful comment of the night.
