I thought arriving to below freezing temperature was bad enough, but today brought a different meaning to the word “chill”. -25C. Just walking one minute in that weather is enough to make a single drop of liquid freeze instantly. Good thing we only walk 2minutes to the shopping mall where they have erected an All Glass Court.

Other South African matches provided the tournament with a few surprises and heart attacks, but unfortunately were unable to prevail today.

Steve Coppinger lost 3-2 against an Egyptian player, and Milnay Louw lost 3-0 against the no.1 ladies seed, Emily Whitlock.
