Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

Quite frankly, I'm quite glad she lost. A pretty decent showing that and now tons of time to be fresh and hungry for Melbourne. No Serena nor Kim before SF. If she can avoid Aga, who knows how far she could go?

About this match, she can regret the 2nd SP which she really fucked up by a too tentative play. She had a couple of occasions to outhit Vika but didn't dare doing so. Oh well. Only Melbourne will matter. Go Baba!

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

In three of her matches against Azarenka,she has been unable to convert on 9 set points :mental midget:

I'm not really enthusiastic for Australia. She's lost all three of her matches against higher ranked opponents so far this year.

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

Razzano R1
Dokic/A Chak R2
Vinci/Zheng R3
Sam?Nadia R4
Petra QF

A tough section with Razzano, Zheng, A Chak, Dokic and Vinci.
But if she makes it out, she has a good chance at a QF (considering she could have drew Na/Vera/Aga in 4th) I'm just praying she makes it past the 1st/2nd/3rd rounds

Carol. Empress. Vika. P3tra. Garbine. Dasha. Casey. Marion.

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

Not easy draw. But if Marion plays it as she can, I don't think that there will be problems until R4, or QF...

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

I know it's weird but I'm more concerned about Chakvetadze or Zheng than I am about Stosur or Vinci.

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

Razzano in first, it could be a very mental match for Marion
Not good feelings for this draw ...

Not really, the last time during 2010 USO, she led 4-1 1st set before to be injured. Her game level is so much higher now. And she already played 7 matches the last 2 weeks.

I guess that she doesn't care about the opponent (remember match vs Serena). She's mentally ready to face every player.

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

i don't think she'll have trouble beating Razzano, but in R2 Dokic could be pretty tough if inspired and on a big court/Chakvetadze is playing well again but retired again in Hobart so who even knows with her(i'd pick Dokic to win between these two)... i never predict beyond that in a GS with Marion but i see her in R3 at least

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

And, may be after, Zheng seems to be back at her best level.

OK,we'll see. With Marion, we can't predict anything

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

Am I the only one who thinks she has a great shot at a big result here? If Marion plays the way she has been, I cant see any of those players upto R4 bothering her. Marion hammered Sam the last two times shes played her, and we all know Stosur's awfulness at home. All the players who own her, Radwanska, Azarenka, Wozniacki and Bepa are on the top half too. Then, an asthma plagued Kvitova on the other side of the bottom half with no other real threats there... Dont want to get ahead of myself because I always end up disappointed with great slam draws but this is a fantastic one. Shes most vulnerable early on but she always brings the goods in big slam matches against top players, at least for the first one.

Re: Off Season News + 2012 - Australia.

Not really a fan of this draw.

For me, it's a no guarantees, take one match at a time draw.

Virginie first. Well she can't play any worse than she did in their last match.
