S1 Week 24, Tokyo, JAP, Tier I

TOKYO TIER I





We leave the hard court season behind, following a surprising US Open in which most of the top players bowed out early, and with Domachowska beating Cornet for the title.

3. Myskina Vs. (PC) Medina-Garrigues
4. Paszek Vs. Petrova
5. Kirilenko Vs. (PC) Zvonareva
6. Radwanska Vs. Kvitova
7. Keothavong Vs. (PC) Schiavone
8. Kuznetsova Vs. Benesova


Main Draw

(1) Dementieva Vs. Golovin
Capriati Vs. Wozniacki
Safarova Vs. Q1
Q2 Vs. (8) Ivanovic
(7) Dechy Vs. Q3
Safina Vs. Hingis
Q4 Vs. Domachowska
Moore Vs. (4) Olaru

(3) Dulko Vs. Hantuchova
Cornet Vs. Q5
S.Williams Vs. Salerni
Q6 Vs. (6) Peer
(5) Cibulkova Vs. Jankovic
Davenport Vs. Sharapova
Q7 Vs. Q8
Schnyder Vs. (2) Vaidisova

Re: S1 Week 24, Tokyo, JAP, Tier I

Capriati, is that a good draw?

The thing is, about the one that got away, if he was meant to be in your life, then he would’ve found his way back to you.
So, you moved on; you chose a different road. Good. Keep your eyes on that.
If you’re always looking in the rear-view mirror, you’re going to miss the turn you need to make in the road ahead of you.
And believe me, there’s always plenty of road ahead of you. Focus on that.

Didn't Serena retire while Lena is out due to injury?

Lena has been persuaded to play whilst nursing her "injury"

Serena is still in discussions with Tour Director so is still in the draw for now

Nikki please try to a make a final (something you haven't done since Birmingham)> but this is a tier 1 most of which you lose early in so a semi final wouldn't be terrible.

Re: S1 Week 24, Tokyo, JAP, Tier I

Ree is in Tokyo




Ree made a short public appearance this morning just to say "Chris Smith made me understand that the Tour needs me and that it is nothing without me. He convinced me giving it a second try." So Serena Williams is in Tokyo and postpones her retirement fo some weeks for sure, first round she will face Salerni.

Cornet doesn't have to qualify!

But Kirilenko R1 and she stuffed me last time!



Vera Zvonareva * Ana Ivanović * Li Na * Laura Robson ......
