Re: Shahar in Australia for 2011

Sydney's draw is so strong!
Shahar was lucky enough to have her opening match against a qualifier and not against anyone else in the draw (although the qualifiers here are quite strong too..)

Good luck!!1 rock them all!!

That's a Tier I (oh sorry, "PM") field

If she makes a QF/SF run here - and she has SF points to defend, since this time last year she's made the final in Hobart (which turned out to be her only one in 2010) - then she's definitely on course for the top 10. But that looks like a mighty ask, with that quarter.

Maybe we'll get lucky and GOAT Naughtya will show up then disappear in the next round like she always does. Azarenka match will be a good test to see where she is at.

Re: Shahar in Australia for 2011

Shahar's section (7/8) for the AO:

[5] STOSUR, Samantha AUS v [WC] DAVIS, Lauren USA
CAMERIN, Maria Elena ITA v DUSHEVINA, Vera RUS
GOVORTSOVA, Olga BLR v CHAKVETADZE, Anna RUS
[WC] PEERS, Sally AUS v [25] KVITOVA, Petra CZE

[22] PENNETTA, Flavia ITA v RODIONOVA, Anastasia AUS
DOMINGUEZ LINO, Lourdes ESP v LARSSON, Johanna SWE
CIRSTEA, Sorana ROU v LUCIC, Mirjana CRO
JOHANSSON, Mathilde FRA v [10] PEER, Shahar ISR



First two rounds should be no more than a warm-up. Flavia is tricky, but not in peak form and Shahar have done well against her lately.
If and when we'll get there, she could have done worse than the unpredictable home favorite for a possible R4.

(P.S. silly thought: wouldn't it be funny if she'd drawn local WC Peers? )

Good draw for Shahar to go somewhere. If Kvitova knocks out Stosur, who knows what might happen.

Re: Shahar in Australia for 2011

Shahar and Shushu playing doubles together

R1 vs Malek/Petkovic and R2 vs Jovanovski/Lepchenko or Date-Krumm/Zhang.

Also, imagine Shahar making top 10 here

GM would explode

Re: Shahar in Australia for 2011

Shahar takes the first set 6-3. HUGE support for Shahar in the crowd.

She got a coaching violation warning in the first set.
