Well if she played Mauresmo in thr 4th round then she would have a good chance for the upset for obvious reasons but unless vee was to be upset in earlier rounds she wouldnt go any further than the quaters but she still has a good chance to get that far

Grassonkova.

I don't think Vaidisova can beat Mauresmo even when Mauresmo is playing bad. This is actually Vaidisova's best surface after indoors. She moves well on it but she doesn't still know what to do about loopy balls on her backhand. Mauresmo tore her apart at the Australian Open just from her variety. She didn't do anything special in that match. Vaidisova will make it to the round of sixteen if she can get pass Marta.

Nicole played far below her level at AO against Amelie...it was kind of shocking but I guess it takes a little while to have the belief to beat the top players...She is so talented and is due for a major breakthrough, also a pretty good section of the draw...so who knows???

I saw her play her best against Mauresmo at the Advanta Championships last year. It was a surface that is probably Vaidisova's best and she still lost in two close sets.

She just doesn't have the game yet to beat Mauresmo.

I think Nicole has a good chance to beat Momo in the fourth round. Her victory at Strasbourg must have motivated her a lot for this tourney.

I think that if she gets there, she could beat Mauresmo if it ends up being a match like last year against Ivanovic. By the way, is clay really Vaidisova's second best surface??

I don't think clay is Nikki's second best surface, but she's said before she she grew up on clay and likes playing on it.

Vaidisova has made the quarterfinals of two Teir I tournis, one indoors and one on clay. She's been consistent on hard courts but hasn't had really any big results in the big tournis on hard courts excluding Syndey this year. She hasn't gotten her footing correct on grass yet.

I think she would prefer grass to clay, the grass suits her better with her power game

I think either Marta Domachowska and Tiantian Sun will make big trouble for her.
