Oz Open prediction for my girls
Well, let's see :
Claudine Schaul: needs to play qualifying, had two earlier losses in this young season needs to improve, but I am sure she will reach the first round main draw.
Greta Arn: no warm up tournaments Down Under, Open will be the first season start. Won a small german challenger tournament last week. If she doesnt get Hingis again in the 2nd round like last year, she might reach the round of 32.
Iveta Benesova: first time direct maindraw at Melbourne. Didnt have a good start at Gold Coast, but if she plays up to her potential, this will be her first GS round of 16 ever !!!!!!!
Besides my girls, good luck at Melbourne to:
Daja B, Maja M, Babsi R and Amanda Graham
And these are my predictions for my favourites for 2004:
IVETA, the czech queen of Most: Return to Top 75, one GS third round
CLAUDINE, the lovely lady from Lux: Top 50, first WTA tour title
LILIA, beauty from Ohio: will get back to her old strength, surprise everyone
GRETA: Youre out of my favourites, not because of your drop in rankings, but because of your behaviour..
, you better quit tennis, youll never make the Top 100 again
