Wimbledon day 7

29 06 2009

DSCN3213Yesterday was a rest day at the traditional grounds of Wimbledon, but today all the 4th round matches in the ladies singles are being played. While I type this, the roof is closed for the first time this year in the grass tournament. The funny thing is that on the other courts where the rain has already stopped, play will resume earlier then on the roofed centre court. A match that finished earlier today was one of my favorites, Italian’s Francesca Schiavone beating Virginie Razzano of France with 6-2 7-6. Fran has never reached the top 10 but captured my tennis heart multiple times, both in New York and in Stanford. A feisty player with lots of on court- charisma and a fantastic single handed backhand. Her loopy forehand has given her all sorts of trouble on grass in recent years, but this years she has had a great grass season. Key today was Francesca’s great serve and netplay. Hope she can win another round but this already equals her previous best slam performances, a quarter final at Roland Garros as well as In New York.
