R2: Annie weathers Nadine storm for 3-1

[10] Annie Au (HKG) 3-1 [22] Nadine Shahin (EGY) 8-11, 11-9, 11-9, 11-6 (48m)

She surprised me with the way she played, she was hitting the ball very fast and the court was bouncy. She was hitting hard and her shots were really good as well.

So I had to make sure I slowed down the pace on the bouncy court, and kept the ball tight, using the lob to prevent her from volleying as much as I could. Any loose shot and she would kill it.

It will be my first time playing in front of the pyramids, I’m really looking forward to it, it’s an incredibly nice set up, and it’s much closer from the hotel! A player was asking me if I was training at the club in the morning before playing? I said no, I can’t, I’m playing early, and it’s just too far!
