I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw 3 women matches (partial) in a row
on USA network eventhough Agrossi played on the same day! They had some
audio difficulties, but I think it's just in my area. The audio basically
just went out, but it didn't bother me that much, especially after hearing
the announcers making a big hoop about having ASV and Capriati appearing
in the same GS for some reason.
Matches they showed: Seles - Looking very good, trimmer than the
last time I saw her on TV, but still nailing those balls hard. She's
serving well also so I'm giving her a good chance to make it to at
least SF. The french WC player I thought was pretty good, hitting
the balls with a lot of pace also, just erratic and not as consistant
Hingis - also looks good, I haven't seen her play that much so it was
a good surprise when I saw her match televised. At least QF I think.
Pierce - Didn't look too convincing, and the black dress is too much
like Agrossi's black outfit. Perhaps "winning ugly" coach has something
to do with it. She is still not too consistant, and her opponent was
hitting the ball a lot harder than her a lot of times. Pierce will
be lucky to make it to R16.
They kept showing "coming up, Capriati" banner, but I didn't see
any Capriati match. From the way she's playing lately, I'd be
surprised to see her make it past 2R. I can't believe people
actually expect her to make it to the round of 16 after such a
poor showing at the Fed Cup.
