    OK, the CAN WD player Alex Bruce deserves a special award for doing something practically most, if not all, of us couldn't, i.e. the way she rotates the racquet on her finger (as seen on TV just now). Both GC and MF were so impressed by that and openly admitted they couldn't do it.

    I'm wondering too, why isn't Michelle Li playing? As CAN WS1 she could give Saina a really tough fight.

    Thanks. Too bad. With her playing and with JK and RH playing 2nd and 3rd singles respectively, Canada could steal a point.

    And Bruce just graduated as a civil engineer, with major in structural engineer as per GC's info :) she really has brain, albeit her play here is just casual

    Hi Shidevil, I saw it live on TV. Maybe you can find the video later, some days later perhaps, on youtube.
