Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

I hope so, but it's a tough world out there, especially if you are not British

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

well it's still a feature, which means it was adapted by me and then by an Editor...but yes, it's normal that a further translation makes it lose its original taste

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

6-4, 6-4 and into the main draw!

Has a very difficult first round ahead against either CSN, Pavlyuchenkova, Kanepi or Hantuchova. All of them are prone to complete shit-fests now and then so you never know...

Whatever happens, this has been a great start to the year for Heather

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Happy she made the MD I think Pavlyuchenkova or Hantuchova might be the easiest outta the four IMO so hopefully she get place by one those two

S. Williams (22) ♦ V. Williams (7) ♦ Vika (2) ♦ Kvitová (2) ♦ Kerber (2) ♦ Muguruza (1) ♦ Ivanovic (1) ♦
C. Wozniacki ♦ A. Radwanska ♦ S. Halep ♦ B. Bencic ♦ S. Stephens ♦ M. Keys ♦ Domi Cibulkova ♦ G. Bouchard ♦ L. Robson ♦ N. Osaka ♦ J. Ostapenko ♦ A. Konjuh ♦ D. Vekic ♦ M. Puig ♦ V. Duval ♦ T. Townsend ♦ L. Chirico ♦ F. Abanda ♦ S. Samir ♦ F. Stollár ♦ T. Andrianjafitrimo

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Yes Hev!

So happy for her, anyone know how close she is to Top 100? I'm hoping she can still make AO MD. She doesn't deserve to play qualies.

It's a new art form showing people how little we care.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

Gets Cibulkova in R1, draw was moved around due to Caro's withdrawl. 1am tonight.

Ranking cut off has already been made for AO, she'll almost certainly be in qualies unless a virus sweeps through or something. It's annoying but if she's playing well and doesn't get a horror draw she should be ok. The R3 points she's defending in Melbourne aren't that nice though could be another big ranking hit before she's able to move upwards.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

There's a new ranking system for 2014 - even if Hev reaches the third round in Melbourne again she'll lose points. But at least everyone is in the same situation. You do get more points for tour qualifying rounds though so luckily Heather has taken advantage of the system this week. It's the kind of system that will work out better for a player like her in the long run.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

She should qualify in Melbourne and this will help with the points situation which is why I think it's actually a good thing she's in the Q Draw.

Re: Heather's Cheering Thread

hmmm Cibulkova... played crap after Toronto last season so I'm in doubt about her form. Congrats Hev, so happy for her, 3 tough opponents but 3 very convincing victories Hoping she can beat Domi!!!!

Someone said Heather is out-of-shape. What the heck?

Well, Hev was right there in the first set but lost her way in the second. Never really found her game. Still a good result!

Anyway, Hev lost 6-4 6-3. The first set could have gone either way, the second... Not so much. At her best, Hev was a wall that could hit nice winners. At her worst she was badly imitating Laura at her worst. Still a great week for her, off to Sidney
