2008 US Open!!!!

Nadia just made the Wimbledon quarters. She also won Cincy and reached the Eastbourne final.
She's playing better now, and only 170 points away from the #11 spot in 2008 points.
Still with a YEC chance if she can do well here and in the fall.

She should win these first rounds, although I sometimes fear Peng a little.

Re: 2008 US Open!!!!

After Peng comes a high seed, so Nadia needs to be playing well to get anywhere.

Re: 2008 US Open!!!!

Nadia was broken 2 times in set 2, but she won.
Has to be sharp as the tournament goes on.

Re: 2008 US Open!!!!

Nadia plays Hsieh, who doesn't have a good serve, but is steady.
Nadia has to be solid with her play. Hold serve, win any break point you get.
You don't want to fall behind and start over hitting.

Re: 2008 US Open!!!!

Nadia and Bjorkman beat Anna and Max.
Bjorkman lost early in mens doubles, so he can focus on mixed.
Nadia has a tough match with Pennetta, who is very solid this year.
Nadia has to hold her serve and play well all match

Re: 2008 US Open!!!!

Nadia lost. That should have at least got to a set 2 tiebreak.
Go win the mixed
