the "hey german girls, who wants to surprise me?"-cheering thread

don't give up! let's cheer for the german girls!

last year's results:
first round.
ROESCH - RUANO-PASCUAL 26 46
RITTNER - HOPKINS 60 57 63
KANDARR - GARBIN 76 63
LAMADE - DEMENTIEVA(12) 46 36
MÜLLER - CHLADKOVA 36 57
AN.BARNA - TESTUD(8) 76 46 16
WEINGÄRTNER - ZVEREVA 46 63 62
ARN - SELJUTINA 64 63

second round.
RITTNER - FARINA-ELIA(10) 36 26
KANDARR - TANASUGARN(20) 36 46
WEINGÄRTNER - GRANVILLE 36 46
ARN - MYSKINA(18) 46 36

what can we expect this year? who plays maindraw, who will qualify? JANA and GRETA will lose points for sure. is MARLENE able to make a run like in melbourne? is BIANKA (still) injured (again)? when will MARTINAs slump end? what about BABSI - she's in danger to fall out of the top100.
but one's for sure: ANNA-LENA won't play juniors - so we shouldn't expect a title this year.

my other signature is funny.

Warum verliert GRETA Punkte, wenn sie letztes Mal in Runde zwei gescheitert ist und diesmal ins Halbfinale kommt ???



QF Wimbledon:

Serena - Momo 6:2, 6:4
Clijsters - Arn 6:0, 4:6, 7:9
Benesova - Zvonareva 6:1, 6:3
Henin - Sprem 6:7, 5:7

SF:

Serena - Arn 2:6, 6:3, 7:5
Benesova - Sprem 6:3, 6:4

F:

Serena - Benesova 2:6, 2:6 !!!!

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

this is from spiegel online. so she will play juniors in ny, but not in wimbledon.

"Das ist ein großer Moment für mich", sagte die 1,80 Meter große Spielerin aus Niedersachsen, die in den kommenden vier Jahren in einem Tenniscamp in Phoenix, Arizona trainieren wird und von Paris aus zu einem Damen-Turnier nach Kanada aufbrach. "In Wimbledon werde ich nicht spielen", berichtete sie. "Aber vielleicht kann ich bei den US Open noch einen Erfolg erringen."

Yup, it is.

You better watch out for IVETA from Most, CLAUDINE from Luxembourg and GRETA from Zuffenhausen everybody.

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

Hoopharry, I would be curious to know when exactly this year you expect Greta Arn to reach the Top 60, let alone win a WTA title?

I would be even more curious to know why you are so optimistic on her behalf. Have you noticed something about her that the rest of us, or at least I, have missed?

Just asking.

Just asking.

I did so in Dec. 2002, that was after she beat Pierce, Majoli, Lihowtsewa and Serna in 2001 and 2002 and forced ASV and Davenport to three sets. I guess, I need to correct myself....

And these are my predictions for my favourites for 2004:

IVETA, the czech queen of Most: Return to Top 75, one GS third round
