Family Circle Cup 2nd day of qualifying

One of the many flower boxes on the grounds of the Family Circle Cup

This morning, we had fun watching Vera Zvonareva and Katarina Srebotnik practice together in the main stadium. Zvonareva's backhand slice looked especially good. We also watched Alex Stevenson for a while; yesterday she double-bageled Kumiko IIjima. I watched Agnes Szavay practice, too, and we saw Richard Williams wandering around the grounds.

The weather was cool, sunny and windy today--unusually comfortable for Daniel Island in April.

We came back to the hotel early to see the Amelia Island final. It was interesting to see Dominika Cibulkova suddenly and drastically improve her serve shen she could no longer move freely because of her thigh. There is a definite lesson in there for her. I now think chances are good that she will withdraw from Charleston, though I certainly hope not.
