Day 2 of my visit to Birmingham was a very hot day! So hot that my face is now sunburnt!
First up on Ladies Day was Petra Kvitová who wasted no time against a frustrated Kasatkina winning in straight sets.
Next up was the top seed Garbine Muguruza who looked frustrated from the off as she fell to a two set defeat against the very impressive Barbora Strýcová!
After I then took a break from centre court and bumped into Kiki and Timea playing doubles on court 1 which they won! I was stood watching the match right next to top umpire Maria Cicak but was too afraid to ask for a photo. Immediately after the win Kiki came back on the practice courts with her brother Luka
I then wondered back to see Julia Georges save 5 set points in set one on her route to a straight set victory over Barty
And the final action of the day involved the double pairing of Watson and Boulter who unfortunately only won two games in their 6-2 6-0 defeat
Tomorrow is quarter final day but also my last day! I’m looking forward to a busy day on centre court with all 8 players in action!
I just need to remember my sun cream this time!
