Round 2 v Joelle King
Friday, 17 August 2012
Yesterday I played Joelle King in the second round of the Australian Open. I knew she would come out strong and I wanted to make the first game as tough as possible. It went as expected and I lost a tough first game 8/11. I then changed tactics which seemed to work and I hit back strongly taking the second 11/7 and third 11/3. It was a tough 4th game but I managed to close it out 11/8.
It was then time for a good recovery with stretching, muscle mating and eating then I went to watch teammate, Zac Alexander who played well but lost to Australia’s number 1, Cameron Pilley in 5 sets.
Today I play Madeline Perry in the quarters. You can watch the match live at 4pm.
