Another fine day, with about 4/8 wispy cloud and a breeze that could become a wind later in the day. Players are warming up. I just timed a shot that went the length of the court (thanks, Robert) and it took 11 or 12 seconds.
My IPad tells me that it has just disconnected from the modem so I will complete about half an hour before going back to the clubhouse, connecting and sending it to the site.
Game 1. We think NZ won the toss.
