I'd say Jodie has a real good shot against errani. Sara is now 35 and still has one of the worst serves ever seen on the WTA tour.


 Yes, add the Harriet vs Katie draw and overall to me it's a decent draw. "Brutal" it ain't.

Super performance from Jodie. More patient than I expected, prepared to wait until the right moment to attack during rallies. Very aggressive on return against Sara's vulnerable serve. A bit surprised Burrage didn't attack the net more often, though clearly her approach worked. Errani with some superb volleys, though one very careless volley late on. Sara with impressive defence at times. Several super drop shots from Jodie.

Great reporting again, kundalini, thanks again for the time taken and detail

Can I ask that you maybe split up reports, at least by sets, so that the later additions appear more appropriately in the thread timelines.

Very good to read Jodie did so well, however good or otherwise her draw was considered to be.

Katie vs Harriet looked a toss-up to me. Anyway Harriet has that early break.

Courts do look fast, which is nice. Heather didn't stand much of a chance to be honest. Good job Jodie.

 Ok. It makes it more difficult for me but I'll try to do it for day time matches when other people may be around posting.

 I'm watching through Bet365 - doesn't seem to be on Prime until the main draw.

 I have it on my Bet365 account but not on Amazon Prime 

Again, thanks kundalini - great reporting. 

Very pleased that Jodie not only won but also did it in convincing style.

Heather's at least was one-sided - no regrets. 

Katie Swan is playing well.....but it's a win-win for us, so no pressure :)

Swan f dtl error wide 15-30, Katie something good 30-30, Swan attempts agg f but miles out 30-40, unret 2nd 40-40, Harriet agg f 40-A, super b winner after 1st from Katie 40-40, good play from Katie finishing with agg f A-, terrible b error into the net from Katie off an easy shot 40-40, agg b cc from Swan A-, Harriet dominates yet Katie defends well, ultimately b error net from HD 5-2

decent wide 1st unret 15-0, Katie attempts an agg f return off a 2nd but misses wide by a lot 30-0 unret 1st 40-0, another unret 1st *5-3

unret 1st 15-0, repeat 30-0, Dart f error long 40-0, rubbish f error net from Harriet for the set 6-3

Katie started very slowly while Harriet was playing better than I expected. After a while Swan improved while Harriet's level dropped.
