I don't think she is with the academy any longer. Not sure why they parted ways. I felt she made excellent progress last year. The second half results, or lack thereof, can be explained by a lot of things that occured--wrist injury at Birmingham, leg injury at Montreal, Anouch's serious illness and absence from the summer/fall tour which meant Aravane's regular training routine was interrupted, not to mention she must have been worried about him, and overplaying, from which she was fatigued the last several events of the year.

I think she played OK at Bali despite the scoreline. Almost every game had break points in it, so it was a pretty even match that could have gone either way with a little luck here or there. With some rest and a fresh start in 2011, I think she is ready to make a run at top 10. I just hope that she gets her coaching situation in order.

If she gets her serve straightened out, she will clobber most of those girls in the top 10.

Re: Allez Arav 2011

great fight and win from Aravane

she'll play another serbian next. Bojana Jovanovsky who showed some talent lately by defeating Kaia Kanepi.
Tough but not impossible. Allez!

Re: Allez Arav 2011

She lost to Jovanovski 7-6(4) 7-6(4)

Oh Aravane, you are so inconsistant! On her day can beat the best and then go lose to players not so good!

Re: Allez Arav 2011

Disturbing loss. Is that girl a pusher? The stats don't really indicate her to be a big server/power player in any of her matches. If she's a pusher, or a pace absorber a la Kerber/Malek/Martic I could understand Aravane having a problem with her, but that's just a disgusting result, really. Not a good way to start the year.

OTOH, she's a Serb, playing in front of a bunch of ex-patriate Serbs in a country full of them, and I'm sure the crowd was rabidly on her side, especially after Aravane had dumped out Jankovic. I can picture the crowd getting ugly with her, especially some of those clowns who post in GM. [EDIT: According to this article, the pro-Serb crowd annoyed her quite a bit, especially in the tiebreaks: http://www.lequipe.fr/Tennis/breves2...rrete-la.html] 6-7, 6-7 is not the end of the world, but I would have liked to see Aravane defend her Sydney points and go into the Open with a chance to build up her ranking, rather than have to try to re-build it. If she doesn't make some points here in Melbourne, she's probably going to start a steady fall in the rankings soon. Though with that power of hers, I just can't see it lasting for long.

As for the AO draw, she's got that nut Zahlavova Strycova in R1, followed by Ondraskova-Dokic in R2, then maybe Na Li in R3. Pretty decent, actually. It's the "Venus-Azarenka" quarter, which IMO is the weak one. She could make waves there, if she is playing well and gets on a good run. None of those gals is what I'd call a favorite, so Aravane has as much chance as anyone. She needs to serve well, though.

Re: Allez Arav 2011

Happy enough with that draw for the AO, it could have been a lot worse.

She has a good chance to go far, if she hits form.

Yeah, she can be a loon.

I hope Aravane ducks when she throws her racquet.

Was a comment on her website that the morning of her singles she may have had had a personal problem she was dealing with. Virginie's comments don't sound reassuring. I think something is really wrong.

Re: Allez Arav 2011

Some on her website and the l'equipe site are suggesting that there are serious health concerns in Aravane's family at the moment. I hope she is OK.
