Internazionali BNL d'Italia - Rome, Italy

Internazionali BNL d'Italia

The BNL Italian international is the last tournament for Srebotnik before Roland Garros.This week, she might well get a new force working, on Monday, she will be in the top 20, all though she's not in top form.With all the new Slovenian generations coming, 3 players being in top 20 she might even reconsider playing Fed Cup.All that is new this week.The draw for Internazionali BNL d'Italia was out Saturday; really don't know what to think.For sure, I think Srebotnik is a pretty more quality player than Muller, who's a good tier III player, even played many challengers last year...but Tu is also a good tier III player, but defeated Srebotnik.Srebotnik isn't the nervous type of player-doesn't rush, and it will be very important, cause Muller plays a lot of moony balls.Another plus for Srebotnik, from what I can see, she doesn't lose 3 matches in a row many times, after losing 2 matches, she wants it even more.And lastly, her form isn't that bad.Had a bad week last week, but everybody has bad weeks.And Muller doesn't have Tu's experiences & power I think.The only thing that has mistaken me about Srebotnik were all the bagels.Well, we'll see on Tuesday.

Last year:

1R Alicia Molik 62 60
2R Ekaterina Bychkova 36 63 62
2R Jelena Jankovic 67 (7) 16

Points defending:


This year:

1R: Martina Muller

2R: A. Medina Garrigues/J. Zheng

My prediction:

1R:Martina Muller 2-0 (H2H 1:0)
2R:AMG 2-1
3R:Nicole Vaidisova 0-2
