Tennis - WTA - Auckland - Rezaï en finale


En 2007, Aravane Rezaï (Photo archives L'Equipe) avait dû attendre huit tournois et trois mois avant de gagner un match sur le circuit majeur WTA. En 2008, il lui aura fallu moins d'une semaine pour égaler sa meilleure performance de l'année précédente. Victorieuse (6-3, 7-5) vendredi de sa demi-finale contre la Néo-Zélandaise Marina Erakovic, la Française disputera la finale du tournoi d'Auckland contre l'Américaine Lindsay Davenport, qui a éliminé (6-4, 6-3) l'Autrichienne Tamira Paszek (n°6).

«Bien sûr, je respecte (Davenport) et elle joue bien. Mais je n'ai rien à perdre», a promis Aravane Rezaï après sa demi-finale. Multipliant les coups gagnants face à une jeune adversaire très maladroite sur son engagement (40% de premier service), ce qui a permis à la Française de la breaker quatre fois, il semble effectivement que la 90e mondiale joue plus libérée cette saison. Rien ne dit cependant que cela sufffira face à Davenport, qui a passé 10 aces à Paszek. L'ancienne n°1 mondiale, 72e aujourd'hui, est impériale depuis son retour de grossesse avec deux trophées et une demi-finale en 2007, et donc cette finale qui lui permettra au minimum de poursuivre sa remontée au classement.

Re: Aravane in Australia

from the Auckland web site:



Rezai Ready For Match Of Her Life

Black will be back - not Cara Black but the stunning outfit worn by France’s Aravene Rezai in yesterday’s semifinal win over Kiwi wildcard Marina Erakovic.

“I will be wearing black again tomorrow,” said Rezai as she looked ahead to today’s final with ASB Classic marquee player Lindsay Davenport. “Today it was great. I’m in New Zealand why not wear black?

I was playing well. Not as good as yesterday [when she ousted third seed Katarina Srebotnik on Thursday] when every ball I hit was in.”

Rezai is under no illusion of the enormity of the task confronting her in the Sovereign Singles final but she is not letting that faze her.

I respect every player,” she said. “Lindsay Davenport was No 1. I’m not scared about that. It will be better to play her than Marina Erakovic.” A reference to the crowd support behind the New Zealander yesterday.

I don’t really have a tactic. I just want to play.”

Rezai, the last-but-one player to get direct entry into the singles draw, has yet to drop a set. Her closet battle was with two-time ASB Classic winner Eleni Daniilidou which she won 7-5 6-4.

She said she is not thinking about her only previous WTA final in which she was forced to retire. Her focus solely on today’s game and the chance to go stroke-for-stroke with one of the greats.

“The people here are very relaxed. They are cool.”

Davenport, who has dropped just one set en route to today’s showdown — the second set against fifth seed Anabel Medina Garrigues — admitted she was going to spend some time watching yesterday’s second semifinal.

“I will probably give it more attention than usual as I haven’t seen either of them [Rezai and Erakovic] play,” said Davenport.

She left the media conference giving the gathered journalists the feeling she was not, however, overly concerned.


hopefully the "All black Aravane" will prevail tomorrow

Re: Aravane in Australia

On that channel, which will show the semis tonight (right now that's Davenport-Paszek, then it's Aravane), they said they'll show the final tonight live at 1am Paris time!

I think I'll love that channel!

Of course, I upload as soon as possible if you want to see it.

Re: Aravane in Australia

During the match, Aravane complained a lot about the crowd. She told the umpire that people were yelling "Double fault!" before all her second serves, which annoyed her a lot!

Re: Aravane in Australia

yes it was too difficult for aravane to be consistent enough against such a quality and experienced player as lindsay davenport.

she can be proud of her cause she beat better ranked players and play some very good tennis.

Wish her a good draw at AO.
