It's not over yet, Casanova is in the quarters in Filderstadt and if she wins tomorrow, she will me unable to play the qualies here. She now faces a very beatable Dementieva.

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

oops, I thought you meant M. Casanova.
Iva will play D. Casanova who isn't as good as her sister. Here are daniela's results for her career (no proffesional results in 2002):

2000 Zurich Indoor Hardcourts
Q1 lost to Jana Kandarr 0-6 4-6

2001 FED CUP Grass
RR lost to Alicia Molik 3-6 1-6

2001 Basel Clay
Q1 lost to Anastassia Rodionova 3-6 4-6

2001 Zurich Indoor Hardcourts
Q1 lost to Daniela Hantuchova 1-6 4-6

2002 Challengers:

Felixstowe ($25k - Great Britain - 0.50 point) Jul 8 02
Qual 2 Julia Smith - Casanova(1) 4-6 7-68 6-4
Qual 1 Casanova(1) - Megan Emmett 6-0 6-1

Fontanafredda ($25k - Italy - 1.50 points) Jun 24 02
Qual 3 Margalita Chakhnashvili - Casanova 6-3 4-6 6-3
Qual 2 Casanova - Emmanuelle Edon 6-4 6-4
Qual 1 Casanova - Daniela Olivera(2) 1-6 6-2 6-1

Lenzerheide ($25k - Switzerland - 1 point) Jun 17 02
1 Romina Oprandi-WC - Casanova-WC 5-7 7-5 6-1

Vaduz ($25k - Liechtenstein - 4.50 points) Jun 10 02
2 Samantha Stosur - Casanova-WC 6-3 6-2
1 Casanova-WC - Jorgelina Cravero(8) 6-3 3-6 7-5

Szeged ($10k - Hungary) May 6 02
F Edina Gallovits(1) - Casanova(4) 6-3 6-0
SF Casanova(4) - Anna Foldenyi-WC 6-1 6-3
QF Casanova(4) - Sybille Bammer(6) 3-6 7-5 7-5
2 Casanova(4) - Nadine Schlotterer 6-0 6-4
1 Casanova(4) - Jorgelina Barrera

not much to worry about. the rest of the qualifying draw looks pretty good, altho Serbotnik is a potential opponent in round 3.

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

I think that Iva should get by Daniela Casanova fairly routinely, but I am not so sure that Denisa will be that easy for her- they have only played once surprisingly:

Iva MAJOLI (CRO) v Denisa CHLADKOVA (CZE)

2002 Vienna Clay (O) 32 Iva MAJOLI 5-7 6-2 6-4

Iva MAJOLI (CRO) leads 1 : 0

Pretty tough and that was on clay, Iva's best surface!

Ondraskova has also had a few decent results, beating Matevzic and Antonella Serra-Zanetti, but I expect Denisa to win this one.

Iva has only played Srebotnik once too, earlier this year at the US Open where Iva won 6-4 6-4. That one was close too. Get through these matches IVA!!!! I think Denisa will be a real test for her, but hopefully she can pull this one off and then get by Katarina too. Jana Kandarr can play some good tennis too, but has been so inconsistent this year. She might surprise Katarina, but I doubt it.

Hingis withdrew, so Iva moved into the main draw

You're talking about Swisscom Challange, right?

Iva has gotten very lucky lately with the way players have withdrawn. Hopefuly she can take advantage of this this time. BTW, there is a short 1 min video of a part of her match vs. Kim on sport.hrt.hr
Iva controlled the points from the baseline, but made too many errors in the clip.

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

Well good to see her in, but I actually wish she played quallies, because looking at the draw Im confident she would have qualified!!

Oh well, here's hoping she gets a good draw
