Say it's not true... Anna vs. Martina?!

I've just checked out the draw for the Pilot pen tournament and saw that Anna will have to play Martina Hingis in the first round.
As far as I know, my eyesight is exelant, so do you think Anna has a chanse of winning the match?

Is this serious? Not the draw, the question?
Martina is back from surgery & Jelena straight-setted her, Anna likes to make her opponents run alot & Hingis had an operation in both ankles, my prediction as Anna in 3 sets, with Martina taking the 1st set easily, the 2nd will be a war, & a relativly easy 3rd set for Anna. Go Anna!

Nimi, you are a trip (good). I never underestimate my fav's opponent no matter if they just had surgery or gave birth.

I believe Anna will have the slight advantage but Martina will be hungry for a win. I am wondering why she would get a top 10 player in the first round.

Go Anna!!!!

Davenport, Capriati, Molik, Golovin, Seles, Clijsters, Myskina, Dementieva, Groenefeld, Frazier, Sprem, Hantuchova, Peschke, Dulko, Ivanovic, Smashnova, Likhovtseva, Vaidisova, Zvonereva, Schiavone, Pennetta

lol, Kerry. I don't underestimate any of Anna's opponents too.

I've sent Aaron the preview of the Pilot Pen Tennis tournament and I've noticed that this is a smaller tournament, with no third round so I guess that there are probably only eight seeds.

Ya, its true, 5 rounds, 8 seeds. I remember last year i was surprised with how small the draw was but there were so many big names.

Anyways, u can never underestimate Martina Hingis, but Karen made it look like Anna has like a 5% chance to win...

Nimi, Karen may be using reverse psychology on *Martina Spies*in this forum and trying not to look overconfident.

Plus, it helps when there is a letdown to not be overconfident. Look at the Montreal tournament. I didn't think Babsi Schett would win even a game and it worked to my advantage. She beat Marissa, Chanda, and Kim. She then let Daniela win in the quarterfinals to help her get closer into the top 10.

Davenport, Capriati, Molik, Golovin, Seles, Clijsters, Myskina, Dementieva, Groenefeld, Frazier, Sprem, Hantuchova, Peschke, Dulko, Ivanovic, Smashnova, Likhovtseva, Vaidisova, Zvonereva, Schiavone, Pennetta

Thank you for the explanation on the seeds and draw. It helps explain why Anna is facing Martina so early.

I will start crying now so she will win.

Good luck Anna!!!!
