Congratulations WTA

It seems a select few players have learned to carry form from one tournament to the next.

Kvitova: Brisbane W, Australian Open QF
Petkorazzi: Brisbane F, Australian Open QF
NaNa: Sydney W, Australian Open QF

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Re: Congratulations WTA

I agree, it's nice to see. Usually they just bomb out after good pre-Slam showings.

Re: Congratulations WTA

Not fair to Clijsters, don't see how a Sydney final is so different from a Brisbane final. Actually, it's better

Re: Congratulations WTA

This should be classified as a BOMBSHELL.

Re: Congratulations WTA

This is not only boring but irrelevant.

Having success in the first tournaments of the year before AO have no impact on the success of the WTA or any lasting impact on the players.

Smart players rest up right before slams anyway. It's like celebrating b/c the winner of New Haven makes the QF or the USO

I always wanted to be somebody. If I made it, it's half because I was game enough to take a lot of punishment along the way and half because there were a lot of people who cared enough to help me.

Re: Congratulations WTA

still Greta Arn Auckland winner fell in 1st round
as well as BMS who actually played her debut match in AO lost to Rus

and Jarmila Groth the winner got defeated in the second round.

I think let's not give it a big deal, though, it's good to see the results.

That hasn't always been the case and I for one miss the times when you didn't actually expect Barbara Zahlavova-Strycova to beat Nuria Llagostera Vives in a tier I final only to see them both lose in the first round next week.

Wait.. when has Zahlavova-Strycova in a tier 1 final?

I think her point was the randomness of some results followed by slumps afterwards.
