Lena sucked and losted - Linz

She got a fairly fugly draw.

1 Myskina
Bye

Schiavone
Bowina

Frannie crushed her in their last match in Scottsdale... and she's playing the best tennis of her life. But, Lena beat her in their other 3 match-ups. Won't be an easy match.

Then, Lena would have to play a fresh Nastya. It won't be like Filderstadt.

Udachi, Lena! Keep fightin', sweetie.

It's never easy. But Schiavone is like Suarez, a good player that Lena will beat, if she plays her normal game.
A rematch with Nastya is good. I think Lena knows she controls that match.
Udachi Lena!!

Because Lena lost to Pistolesi and Petrova, I'm not going to expect the world. I'll keep from being disappointed.
So I predict Schiavone, 6-0, 6-1. It's the same as losing 7-6 in the third, but quicker and less painful.
Udachi Sweetie!!!

You mean my posts involving Lena? I was just trying to be interesting with a little humor.
I'll try to post in a different way.
Please don't take it as an insult. I don't mean to do that to anyone.

I don't have a good feeling about this match for Lena...

Lena's gone deep in tournies the last 3 weeks. Frannie is rested, and has the game to beat Lena... her backhand that she can angle very well can run Lena around.

I'm hopeful... but a loss here wouldn't surprise me.

I didn't see any of Lena's loss to Nadia. The score makes it appear that Lena didn't play well, at least compared to most of the last three weeks.
That loss, plus having lost her last match against Schiavone, should have Lena mentally ready for a difficult match.
We'll find out tomorrow.

Schiavone is a tricky player, with alot of loopy topspins. Lena would have to just hit through those topspins and not let Schiavone control the rallies, its a winnable match! Lena is playing better on carpet, so she should win on this faster surface. Go LENA!

Good Luck Radwanska Sisters!


Sorana Cirstea - Stefanie Voegele - Michelle Larcher de Brito - Alexandra Dulgheru



Martina I will miss you!!

Lena beat Schiavone in a very tight match... 7-6(9), 6-4.

Nevertheless, a good win as Schiavone is playing like a Top 20 player.

Myskina is next.

Lena is 2-0 against her with wins in Sydney and Filderstadt this year.

Udachi Lena!!!

Also... Lena basically locks up a Top 24 seed for Aussie Open now. Hopefully, she can get to 4R again... she has some big points to defend.

Centre Court (from 14.00hrs)
1. Myskina vs Bovina
2. Mandula vs Schett
3. Mikaelian vs Schnyder
4. Petrova vs Krasnoroutskaya (NB 18.30hrs)
5. Pisnik vs Stevenson

Lena is first off again on Center Court... maybe it's a good omen.

Udachi Lena!!!
