Marko, I believe they froze the entires a few weeks ago when Roby was ranked 106 so she missed by three spots. To my knowledge Kim is the only withdrawal so two more will have to in order for her to gain direct entry. I just hope her foot injury is healing and she won't reinjure in Athens.

Speaking of Athens, Roby and Tathiana have drawn Nicole Pratt and Samantha Stosur in doubles. Not sure how healthy Roby and Tati are but hopefully they can get through their first round match and pick up some steam. Forza!!!

Roby into the main draw at USO!!!

I got to see the match and Roby fought well. She has really improved her serve and is much more steady. A couple rough spots (she lost a 4-2 first set lead and had a rough patch up 4-1 in the second) but she closed well.

Brava Roberta!!!

Tough draw against Schnyder first round but Roby looks to be playing well. The big question is her foot injury which she seemed to favor in the third set.

I was there. So many missed chances in that first set!

Roby hit some beautiful shots but her serve and shotmaking was amazing and self-destructive at the same time.

The second set was a disaster. Roby played with no hope. She favored her foot after her final qualifying match so I suspect she didn't think she could battle like that again and win against the likes of Patty. Still, very disappointing that she didn't play with any gumption after losing the first.

Hi GoSandrine!!! I'm sure Roby will do on in the double tournament. At least QF....
Have you met Casonifan? I know her, a really nice girl.

Roberta and Severine lost in doubles to Kostanic and Schaul 7-5,6-3.

And yes Marko, I have been hanging out with Valerie on the days I've been at the US Open. We have had alot of fun especially at Tax's match the other night. We also watched Roberta against Patty and a slew of other matches. She is very nice and speaks highly of you.

ok time to resurrect this thread...or is it?

Roby came in as the second seed but got spanked by Korean Yoon Jeong Cho at Oz in the first round of qualies 6-2,6-1. Even more discouraging is she didn't hold serve once!

Roby, please get your game together. I wonder if her foot is still bothering her?

I was very disappointed to read she lost so badly. I hope she gets her revenge in doubles. Does anyone know who is she playing with?

Well, she played with Silvija Talaja in Sydney so my guess is they'll team up in Melbourne.
