well, now Hingis knows what she needs to do (just trying to see the positives) !!!

Allez Martina, you did better than expected in this tournie!!

19. In the period from January to April 2006 Dr. Skalny sent very detailed messages to Ms Sharapova [...]: “Mildronate 1-2 X 10, repeat in 2 wks (before training or competition)”; “1 hr before competition, 2 pills of Mildronate”; “During games of special importance, you can increase your Mildronate dose to 3-4 pills (1 hr before the match). However, it is necessary to consult me on all these matters (please call)”; “30 minutes prior to a training session: Mildronat – 1 Capsule. 30-45 minutes prior to a tournament Mildronat 2 capsules”.

I hope this doesn't discourage her at all.

Really, don't even look at me...

I'm not going to be disappointed at all. I promised myself I wouldn't change my expectations. I just wanted her to get 2-3 matches in, instead she won 3 matches. I'm VERY happy with her first tournament back. I did have a feeling that Marti might lose a match she should have won this week, because she did take a lot of match points in her other matches. It'll come along as the season progresses, her fitness will improve as well. I hope she's just smart with scheduling singles and doubles and not doing both at every tournament. This is a GREAT tournament back, and she did far better than most that she would. So I am happy .

Awesome job Flavia, you're definitely solidifying your spot in the top-20. I'll be cheering for Lucie tomorrow though , since she is one my favs as well.

Posted this on the other one, I'm not typing a new message.

Hey, you gotta be positive. In her first tournament back, she is playing at top 25 level. She has prove in this tournament that she can play back to back to back matches and that she can sustain a three set match. From this match and this tournament, it is clear that she has the game to get back to top ten at the end of the year. As of this moment, she just needs to play her way back into shape. I'm very proud of her. She's been taking many match points to win her matches and today showed that mentally she is still far from where she needs to be. Closing out matches is the toughest thing to do after a long layoff. She'll get it back with more match play and close sets. She played two close sets this week and lost both. With each that she starts to win, she'll become more confident and she'll get better and better. Way to go Martina and good luck in the future!

hunger, desire, fire..........
stength, power, precision.........
talent, court sense, smartness........
no i am not talking about a racket or a squirrel, i am talking about the former and future number 1..............
martina hingis!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Luck Justine Henin Hardenne, Venus Williams, Maria Sharapova, Mary Pierce, and any of my other favorites that I might have forgotten about at this moment.
