Anyone notice the scores - all three setters. Black & Huber beaten
(pity, I like Black), and what happened with Dellaqua/Schiavone!

Yeah, I did, some anyway, even if it was on JustinTV, and all a bit
squished by messed-up aspect ratio. Black/Huber just played a bad
match. It was hard to tell whether the mistakes were forced (image was
too jerky) but a lot of the reaction shots Black usually plays
beautifully were spraying out.

She's out of the Mixed Doubles too. Not a good tournament. On the
other hand, Dechy is doing better than I expected.

I still think the Williams sisters will be very, very hard to beat.
They just hit a much heavier ball than their opponents are used to.
And they seem to have actually learned a bit of tactics.
