Re: S1 Week 27, Moscow, RUS, Tier I

Schnyder and Moore announced retirements last week

Petrova and Myskina have been retired

With those 4 gone it left 36 players, so decided to get rid of PC players and have 32 player draw

Re: S1 Week 27, Moscow, RUS, Tier I

omg.
VS JJ once again!

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.

Re: S1 Week 27, Moscow, RUS, Tier I

Nikki is still having problems with the shoulder but hopefully she can win a few rounds and not serve 20 dfs like she did against Golovin at Stuttgart.

Nikki needs to learn how to perform well consistently especially at tier 1's. At least next season she can gain a lot of points since this season she has lost early at Doha, Dubai Miami, Charleston, Rome, Berlin, Montreal, New Haven, Tokyo, Stuttgart and Wimbledon. Not to mention she didn't play Gold Coast. Wow That is a lot of 1st and 2nd round losses. How in the hell is Nikki number 2 in the world?

Nicole Vaidisova Is Still Hampered By Shoulder Injury



In a press conference earlier today, one of OWTT's biggest stars Nicole Vaidisova spoke about her shoulder injury. Despite feelings of hope that her shoulder had improved, Vaidisova told reporters that she still felt pain and her serving so far in practice has been nothing short of poor. Although injured Vaidisova hopes to put together a few wins and boost her waning confidence. Her serve may not be up to par but Vaidisova is never short on heart and aims to deliver in her first round match against the feisty Russian Dinara Safina.

In unrelated news Nicole Vaidisova has mended fences with fellow players Tatiana Golovin and Serena Williams while refocusing her anger toward world number one and world class whiner Elena Dementieva. Vaidisova had the following words to say on the matter, "I'm sure everyone is shocked that I am ending my feud with Golovin. The truth of the matter is that we are both so much alike that there was bound to be friction between us. We are both young, beautiful, and most importantly we both want to be the HBIC."

When asked by one of the reporters to explain what HBIC stood for, Vaidisova laughed and said "It's urban slang for Head Bitch In Charge. Many people don't know this but I spent a summer in Baltimore during my early teenage years. That's actual how I met my current coach Justin. We dated briefly. Before Radek and I got together I had always preferred my coffee black so of course Justin and I clicked. Back then I was a thug and to this day I wont hesitate to get gangsta when necessary. But anyway, Justin and I ran into each other a year or so ago. I needed a coach and he need a player so we decided to team up. As far as Golovin is concerned we had something else in common, our hatred of Jessica Moore. To be honest I hated Jessica but the poor girl looked up to me so much that I tried to spare her feelings. However it was getting tiring carrying her ass in doubles and defending her poor tennis skills to other players.. Its no secret she had a 2-0 record against me. She wasn't winning many other matches so I took pity on her and tanked so she could at least end the season with two wins. I'm glad she quit and not the least bit surprised. She wasn't good enough to make waves on tour. Since our first Jessica Moore hating session, Tati and I have really bonded bonded. Serena and I aren't exactly best friends now but it was pointless carrying on a feud with someone who I have so much respect for. I called to congratulate her on her first tier 1 title last night. On the topic of Dementieva, I wish she would shut the hell up about Dechy. We get it Lena, she beat you because of a lucky netcord but I recall Lena winning a handful matches because of netcords, choking from opponents when serving out the match in a third set, and bribing line judges. This is tennis anything can happen so suck it up and move on.

When asked if she had resolved things with Davenport, Vaidisova responed, "I wanted to but visitor hours at the seniors home were over."
