Re: Nadia in 2007!

I think Nadia will get into the top 5 after the US Open.
I don't know if she will win a slam.
I wasn't satisfied with her Linz final or last 2 YEC matches.

Re: Nadia in 2007!

The most important thing for Petrova in 2007 is her health. In order to avoid anymore injury related problems, I really hope that Nadia learns how to schedule her tournaments correctly.

My ideal schedule for Nadia would consist of the following 17 tournaments:

Auckland
Sydney
Melbourne
Paris
Antwerp
Dubai
Doha

Miami
Amelia Island
Charleston
Berlin
Roland Garros

Eastbourne
Wimbledon

San Diego
Los Angeles
Toronto
New Haven
Flushing Meadows
Beijing

Luxembourg
Stuttgart
Moscow
Linz

If Nadia performs poorly at any of these events she can always take a last minute wildcard as she is now a gold-exempt player. If she does decide to enter any events last minute, it is preferable for her to consider tier 1 events first (Tokyo, Indian Wells, Zurich, Rome).

You may have noticed that I have excluded Amelia Island as one the events for 2007. Miami is still a mandatory event, and thus will count as on the 17 tournaments used in the rankings. The last thing I want is for Nadia to play a whole month without any R&R. We are all very well aware of what happened this year, when Nadia did not take any time to recover.

During the off-season, I really hope Nadia works on her mental strength. It is very important that she not go into mental lapses against the big players (Sharapova) during the most important points of the match. Another major change in on-court attitude wouldn't hurt. I know it has improved this year, but the attitude still needs a lot of work. It cost her two matches at the YEC.

"Child,you really think you're gonna win Roland Garros
with Vera in the draw?"

Aren't you a downer...Nadia's already in the top 5...so I don't think she's going to fall all year just to come back next September...

She's always played great in March-May, so that'll be good for her ranking...

Re: Nadia in 2007!

Kim took the #5 spot this week. And making the top 5 again would be a good achievement.
Nadia's highest rank was #3, and she only had it for a week or two.

Re: Nadia in 2007!

She would have had it for a longer span of time had she not injured herself during the French Open...

Re: Nadia in 2007!

But when she came back, she didn't play like a #3.
Nadia, to move up, has to get a lot more points than Justine, Maria, Amelie, Kim..
that's not easy.

Re: Nadia in 2007!

It will almost impossible to move up until the summer, when she has no points to defend.
She ahs a chance to be a #1, but she has to play like she did in the spring.
Play like that all year.

Re: Nadia in 2007!

if she has fun on court, she could do well since AO!! i expect her to be top 5 at the end of 2007.

This place is too small to put all the players i like here.

I agree that she has the best chance of dramatically increasing her ranking next summer, but she's also done well from January to May, so if she plays even better, she'll even manage to gain more points...

Re: Nadia in 2007!

I expect Nadia to have a really good 2007. I think she should challenge at all of the majors, especially Roland Garros. She's defiantly got the game to win a grand slam, hopefully she will be able to in 2007!

Re: Nadia in 2007!

Nadia can be #1 if she stays healthy.
But I'm going to keep my expectations realistic, and hope she finishes in the top 5.

Re: Nadia in 2007!

I'm going to see Nadia play Molik at Hopman Cup on December 30th in 2006. I have tickets

I'll take some pics and maybe videos and post them on here.
