S1 Week 12, Berlin, GER, Tier I

BERLIN, TIER I





Welcome to Berlin, as we kick off the European clay swing, in the lead up to Roland Garros. Lindsay Davenport played her way back to form in Charleston last week, winning her second title. Can she reproduce similar form here in Berlin? The top players will be looking to re-establish themselves here, after relatively poor showings for most last week. Expect good things from Sharapova, Dementieva and Moore. Let's check out what the draw holds in store for us.....


(1)Dulko Vs. Bye/WC
Hantuchova Vs. Salerni
Jankovic Vs. Muller
Harkleroad Vs. (5)Cibulkova
(7)Ivanovic Vs. Safina
Moore Vs. Petrova
Chakvetadze Vs. Schnyder
Dechy Vs. (4)Vaidisova

(3)Dementieva Vs. Bye/WC
Radwanska Vs. V.Williams
Hingis Vs. Pierce
Stosur Vs. (6)Olaru
(8)Davenport Vs. Sharapova
Golovin Vs. Capriati
Szavay Vs. S.Williams
Bye/WC Vs (2) Peer



POINTS DUE TUESDAY 8PM

Re: S1 Week 12, Berlin, GER, Tier I

Uncertain future for Ree on OWTT




Some says Serena is presently sick or maybe hiding a serious injury, one thing is sure she's not anymore the Ree we've known at the beginning of the season. Serena was constantly making it to semis and quarters for something like the 7-8 first weeks of the season, even if Serena seems depressed since only 3-4 weeks, it really seems to be serious.

Someone near of Serena said, "She (Serena) has changed a lot in the last weeks. She's kinda lazy, she's not training as hard as usually and she gained some weight." This is something we could notice in her match against Dominika Cibulkova, in which one she seemed to be really tired after every long rally and breathing really heavily when she had to run, to finally get bagelled in the final set.

Someone else in her entourage also said to us "Serena told me she would be trying until French Open or Wimbledon hoping for some good results. If things keep getting worse than what it presently is, she would consider retirement. She just hopes for some improvement." But getting worse than what it presently is would be tough as Serena is just playing the awfullest tennis she has ever played.

You can't retire! Just keep tweaking away at points and you will get back to form!
