Yes, I too hope 2010 brings only the best for Aravane. I think she has the chance to make it a very good year, for a couple of reasons. First, Aravane is working with a new coach, and that can always be beneficial. More importantly, she knows that she can play with anyone (and win), having beaten a field of tournament winners for her second title. There's no substitute for the confidence that comes from winning. If she believes in herself, I think she can reach the top ten next year.

Tough draw :/ Julie shouldn't be that much of a problem except for her strong serve. But the second round will really be hard, Cibulkova and Dulgheru are two quick players very at ease on defense. Flavia isn't a present either.

Aravane played fantastic last year at Auckland and was a massive crowd favourite - she was funny and cool. It began a great year for her. All her matches this year will be live at www.planetstream.tv - the official stream. These guys have done this event the last 4 years and quality is always good.
