Marina Erakovic and Vera Dushevina sort out their things before the coin toss. (2nd match on Stadium Court, c. 11:30 am Friday)
Erakovic and Dushevina coin toss. They were both bouncing lightly on their feet throughout the toss.
Erakovic's coach (a few feet away from us, in one of the boxes in Section C)
Vera Dushevina. Very out of sorts during the first set.
Marcelo Melo on Court 1, playing tennis-ball footie with his hitting partner and chatting to him in Spanish. They started practicing around the same time a women's doubles SF started on Grandstand.
Lucie Hradecka (blurry, in the back) and Andrea Hlavackova, warming up
Georgian/Dutch pair in discussion
Melo's hitting partner. Melo and Dodig made it to the finals this year.
Daniel Nestor, warming up for practice on Court 1 by jogging and rotating his arms in circles at the same time.
Max Mirnyi practicing serves. He and Melo shared the court for a bit, and then Melo's team hung out for a bit near the exit, chatting among themselves while Max and Daniel held a very, very intense discussion at the net. (Seems to have worked, since they won the whole thing.)
Querrey and Stepanek coin toss. Sorry about the blurriness -- posting this anyway to show their relative heights. (I keep forgetting how tall Sam is.)
Not a good day for the Vegas boy.
Isner-Melzer coin toss
John not finding the answers he wants from the fuzzy yellow ball.
