    Bolotova is so pretty! Both Russian girls are cute!

    The Russian ladies must be quite good too, they despatched Tang Yuanting/Huang Yaqiong yesterday but I've admit the CHN WD pair is a relatively new pairing, not able to click yet.

    Russia's return seems half-hearted. Still trails 14-16.

    GC says the Russian girls are ranked third in their country.

    They just lost G2 21-15 and the match.

    My friend, it's been a long time since I heard from you. Hope everything's fine.

    The Russians focus seems to ebb in and out of the match. There wasn't any coach with them?

    Yes, been a while. Still playing as much as the heart and body parts will allow these days. Too many broken components get in the way of good play. But still enjoying a good match - although watching nice bodies moving on court add to the eye candy!
    Hope you are fine! Sounds like your family is growing up! So fast!

    Scott Evans enters the arena holding a bottle of wine, it appears to me, is he allowed to drink before the match? :D

    Sorry just a bit late to capture the Russian beauties.

    I hope Scott can give CTC a really good fight.

    Evans must be prepared to challenge the net or else it might be a one-sided match.

    Good to know that you are still playing, doubles I suppose.

    I'm not giving up either and try to put in twice a week. Inspiration from an article that a 90-year-old man from the West is still playing! So I ignore the joint pains and carry on.

    No bother from the grown-up, independent kids.

    Good to see Evans attacking well but he has to watch out for CTC's defence followed by counterattack.

    Evans is asking the umpire whether CTC moves before he serves.

    Not bad from Scott although he trails 9-11 in G1 interval.

    hmmm - any grand kids yet then?
    I'm still on the waiting list - seems my kids aren't all that interested as yet.
    Drives mrs. badrad nuts I think - maybe some biological granny clock ticking.
    So we have a couple of dogs... LOL!

    Two easy points for Scott when CTC clears and smashes out.

    But CTC makes no mistake with his smash that followed.

    13-15, Scott still trails.

    Never noticed how big CTC calves are! Evans is doing well keeping up. I like his fighting spirit - maybe the fighting Irish!

    Evans is handling the net play much better than THW yesterday, I'm impressed.

    Yes I do, granddaughters instead of only boys in my family and my father's.

    Maybe your kids are pressured by work?
    But they'll come in good time.
