Re: Indian Wells

H2H is 1-1, but Andrea won the latest one (Beijing 2010).
Safarova also coming pretty much straight from Kuala Lumpur. Hopefully she's tired...
Just trying to think positively here.
Possible rematch from Brisbane w/ Bartoli, and if we dare think ahead, Clijsters in the Quarters.

Re: Indian Wells

Safarova is always a tough opponent but you never know what to expect, as she has no consistency, in QF Clijsters would wait, so that is the maximum for Andrea here, I guess, good luck

Re: Indian Wells

Someone in the Middle East thread wrote that if Andrea makes it to Quarters she can reach Top 20, so on the bright side that's a good short-term goal to have, and very possible.
Also Andrea hit w/ Steffi the other day, that's gotta be good for her confidence.

Re: Indian Wells

If she manages to meet Clijsters, it's R4, not QF.

Re: Indian Wells

Oh oops!

Edit: but hey, she's only defending first round points right? So at least she's getting add'l points in comparison to last year already?

Re: Indian Wells

It seems she rarely has any luck with draws, so I don't care about them too much.
Just don't lose in the first match, then I'll be fine with it.

Re: Indian Wells

sucky draw in my opinion

But she should be fit and well prepared again so it will be a good challenge

no, after bye in 1st round a second round loose would count like a 1st round loose.
so she need to win her 2nd round match to add points to her ranking

Re: Indian Wells

Would've been nice to have an easier opponent in the first match after the break. But she has to beat players like Safarova and Bartoli anyway if she wants to make it into Top 20. Also being without the pressure of defending points won't hurt.

Re: Indian Wells

Good chance at a R4. Safarova is still very inconsistent and Marion was sick last week and she hates the court here, doesnt suit her at all.
