S1 Week 7, Dubai, UAE, Tier I

DUBAI TIER I





Welcome to Dubai - our 7th stop on the OWTT tour. Last week was all about the unseeded players, with none of the Top 8 making their projected QF spots, and with both pairs in the doubles final being unseeded too. Will the underdogs continue to impress again here in Dubai, or can the top players regain a stranglehold? Peer announced herself as a huge threat by becoming the first player to win multiple titles. Can she continue her 12 win streak here or will someone bring her crashing back down to Earth? Kirilenko, Schnyder and Venus seemed to get their season's back on track last week and could do very well here too. Let's check out the draws.....


R64 Matches:-

Pierce Vs. Salerni
Muller Vs. Petrova


R32:-

(1)Dulko Vs. Radwanska
Jankovic Vs. Wozniacki
Szavay Vs. Pierce or Salerni
Stosur Vs. (7)S.Williams
(5)Dementieva Vs. Muller or Petrova
Hingis Vs. Rezai
Olaru Vs. Dechy
Harkleroad Vs. (4)Ivanovic

(3)Peer Vs. Capriati
Kirilenko Vs. Sharapova
Hantuchova Vs. Davenport
Dokic Vs. (7)Golovin
(6)Vaidisova Vs. Chakvetadze
Moore Vs. Mauresmo
V.Williams Vs. Safina
Schnyder Vs. (2)Cibulkova

__________________________________________________ _____________

Re: S1 Week 7, Dubai, UAE, Tier I

IMPORTANT!!!

Players who MUST send points this week are:-

Chakvetadze
Capriati
Mauresmo
Radwanska
Dokic
Muller
Petrova

Otherwise they will be retired. Not sending points for a 5th tournament in a row is unacceptable. Even keeping the same points for 4 tournaments isn't giving you much of a chance to win!

if you'll look at the first post...
Peer is on a 12 match streak.
when you win multiple titles, then you can talk to me.
until then... just continue to sip your haterade.
