IVA in New Haven!!!!!

Great news Diva's!!!! Iva is in the Main Draw!!!! I just read an article in GM that said that due to Maggie Maleeva's withdrawal, Iva has moved up to the main draw!!! I'm so glad she didn't need to go through qualifying- that draw is going to be tough!!! It's a shame that Iva couldn't have won a few matches at Montreal, but we've got to hope she can get something going here!
Good luck Iva and please give her a decent draw!!!

Im afraid there'll be no decent draw here

Im actually hoping Iva draws one of the top seeds early. I really want to see how she shapes up against them right now. It seems that she loses to the lower ranked players, and gives the higher ranked ones (when she plays them) a bit of a match.

So I actually would like to see her face a seed in round 1 Just to see where we stand right now.

Good luck Iva Forget Montreal!!! It *was* your first hardcourt tourney in 5 months after all....ahh the joys of excuse making

GO GET EM!!!!!!

Terry, you're right, there won't be any easy draws here, but I just hope that Iva gets someone she can compete against (i.e. Hingis, Dokic) and not someone that could just blast her off the court (i.e. VENUS or Jen!!!), although honestly I think Iva can handle even the biggest power players. I just want her to win at least one round on the hard courts before the US Open b/c she is not defending her finalist points at Quebec!!!!! She needs the points desperately right now!!!! Even in light of her loss to Dechy, I still think Iva can do something at Flushing Meadows. Although I guess it's sure for now that she will face a 1-8 in 3rd round....:-( Isn't that how the seedings work? I'm not sure about that.

Good to see you Ed Thanks for your support! Will you be attending the Open this year?

xcourt, Iva is 25 in the world right now I think...so she should get #24 as Sandrine is not playing Not sure, Ive never been the most reliable stats person

Go IVA! Here's to a good week

I hope you're right about that Terry!!! Iva has much better chances to beat a 9-16 than a 1-8. That seeding between 24 and 25 seems so critical right now!!!! GO IVA!!!! Beat them all!!!!

Iva plays Silvia Farina Elia 1st round! IMO, this is a very winnable match for Iva. I hope she's gotten in some good hard court practice since that loss to Ruano Pascual and comes here ready to kick booty!!!!
Possible 2nd round match-up with Hantuchova I believe...

This record looks good for Iva too:

Iva MAJOLI (CRO) v Silvia FARINA-ELIA (ITA)

1994 French Open Clay (O) 64 Iva MAJOLI 6-4 6-1
1996 Leipzig Carpet (I) 16 Iva MAJOLI 6-4 6-2
2000 Kuala Lumpur Hard (O) 32 Iva MAJOLI 6-1 6-4

Iva MAJOLI (CRO) leads 3 : 0

I hope Iva can keep it up!!!! I would love to see how she could do against Daniela!!!!

Im pretty happy with this match Silvia is another of my favorite players and will give Iva a tough match, but if Iva wanted 35 bonus points right now with poor form and all, I think now would be as good a time as any. Silvia is also struggling with form at the moment so hopefully Iva can take advantage of that.

Ive got a good feeling about this match. Let wait and see what happens!

GO IVA!

IVA WON! 4-6 6-4 7-6(2)

That was really close. She will now have two days to rest until the second round. She must be very happy with this win!

ugh, why do they all suck????????

That was close!!!!

Another 3rd set tiebreak for Iva!!!!
2nd one of these that she has played and won this year! She got to the 2nd round here last year, but that was a 64 player draw and this year is only 32, so that should help her points!!!
Good luck next round Iva!!!! Go far here!!!

woohoo! What a great victory!!!!

This will do wonders for her confidence

xcourt, are you sure? I am pretty sure Iva lost in the first round of qualies last year to Oremans...so by my calculations Iva has already earned 60 points just by winning 1 match here
