Re: How far will BagEEEElie go in the Oz Open?
LoL @ this thread.
People are seriously underestimating Amélie for this year's AO.
The way she plays in the warm-up tournaments leading to the
GS's, is NOT indicative for how she will perform at the slams themselves.
Someone on this board last year mentioned that Amélie's early losses
(4 in a row now) at these tournaments were calculated, in order to
save up on her energy for the big ones.
Could be true. The match reports I read on other boards about her
Sidney match vs Jelena Jankovic, were all suggesting that she tanked
that second set. It could be that she has no intention at all to try to
win these tournaments and only enters them to figure out where her
game stands compared to the other players without tiring herself out.
Anyhow, whatever is true about this, I guess only Amélie and Loïc know;
I wouldn't be surprised AT ALL to see her win this tournament.
