Re: 100K Biarritz

Yes ... 33 winners, 9 aces, and only 11 UEs against a big grass player like Bartoli ... Top 10 tennis for sure. She's probably been back in the States for a week, but I am surprised she did not give the Biarritz people more notice!

Re: 100K Biarritz

I really doubt she's been in U.S and waited to withdraw until 1 day after the draw was made.
Maybe she is injured/ill.

Re: 100K Biarritz

No point to defend at all now until the US Open. A huge chance to climb further inside the top 100 !

Re: 100K Biarritz

I would be happy with top 75 on the end of the year. She has chance, but will need a couple more tournaments with 100+ points.
And she could had earned at least 60 in Stanford, if not 200 again.

Re: 100K Biarritz

Yes she needs to get into some of these US tournaments in the next few weeks when everyone's focused on London. Lots of points and prize money up for grabs for someone with Miki's talent.

You got that right. Weakest field I've ever seen for an event this size, and it's a shame, too, because the setting here at Stanford is one of the nicest on the tour. The quallies were underwhelming to say the least. They had only two courts going for the first day (main court and court 6) and the list was pretty lame. But, it is the Olympic event that has caused this one to suffer, just as it will for CITI.

Big props to Serena for making it all the way out here -- she is single-handedly saving this event. So is Bartoli, for that matter. Miki could have gone through this field like a powerhouse, with her current form.

As we know, her contingency plan for an early Wimby loss was for the 100ks in Europe. I now wonder if she did end up sick or with an injury for Biarritz, because I can't imagine she would not have been able to score a WC for at least the quallies here, if not the MD.

Perhaps she simply was not in a position to get here in time. Hope she shows up fit and focused and well-practiced for the US Open series later. Serena looking quite fit ... Everyone else looking quite tired!

Re: 100K Biarritz

She still has time to ask for WC in Carlsbad.

Re: 100K Biarritz

Yeah I expect to see her name in either QD or MD for Carlsbad next week.
