Nicole Vaidisova is hoping to continue her winning form at the Sony Ericsson Open. After reaching the finals in Banglore and winning in Indian Wells Vaidisova is brimming with confidence. Winning however wont be an easy task as Vaidisova will have to go through the talented Ivanovic in the quarters who won their last match handily in the AUstrallian Open Quarter Finals. However if Vaidisova is able to serve well and control her forehand the rest of the field should watch out
One of your fellow members on the tour, Tatiana Golovin is injured. Have you reached out to her at all? **laughs* Is that what she is telling everyone. I don't buy it for a second. She is clearly trying to escape the shame of all of her recent embarrassing losses. I cant believe she is still in the top 10.
You've had disagreements with a lot of the girls on tour. Is there anyone you get along with?
Of course. Moore, Sharapova, and the Williams Sisters are wonderful girls. Cibulkova and I aren't exactly friends but I certainly respect her as a player.
Now that you have won your first title what are you future goals for OWTT?
Winning Wimbledon of course.
