Marie-Eve Pelletier

Well, this seems a fitting time to create our next player thread for Marie-Eve Pelletier - After a difficult 2003 season, Marie-Eve has started 2004 on a very positive note by winning her first singles match of the year! She beat Maria Kirilenko of Russia, 6-4, 6-4 in Australian Open qualifying

Kirilenko was the 8th seed, and an interesting statistic to know that Marie-Eve has now won her opening round Australian Open qualifying match all 4 years she has played there Perhaps she feels something special there after her junior semifinal run several years back

Anyway, I hope that Marie-Eve can continue to find her way back up the rankings where she deserves to be, and hopefully we will all have many more great results and stories to report to this thread in the future

But he loves you."

Well you will be even more shocked!

Marie-Eve Pelletier def Janetta Husarova 6-4 6-3

She was leadin 5-0 in that last set and she choked a lil like we are used to, but she managed to win her serve, which by the way was on fire tonihgt! 85% of first serves in the first set!

Marie-Eve played a very solid match tonight by the looks of things, she actually did not get broken in the match until leading 6-4, 5-1 so that definitely shows how well she was serving, and she didn't hit an unforced error in the second set until 4-0! Quite impressive.

Next up is Sybille Bammer, Bammer has been in good form in recent months but hopefully Marie-Eve is feeling confident from these past 2 wins

Allez Marie-Eve!

Do any of you guys know who is Marie-Eve's coach? Apparently she(her coach) helped a player reaching the top 30. Marie-Eve said that many times last summer but she never said who that player was...

Marie-Eve has qualified for her first Grand Slam

Pelletier def. Bammer 6-3, 4-6, 6-4!

I was a little nervous in that last set when she started to let a 4-0 lead go

Way to pull thru

What a great way for Marie-Eve to qualify - She was up 6-3, 4-3 before Bammer managed to hang in there and grab it 6-4. Heading into the final set, it was easily possible that Marie-Eve could have got discouraged and got down early, but instead she stayed tough and got off to a quick 4-0 lead. Bammer again stuck around though (giving a few of us following the match a near heart attack no doubt ), but it came down to Marie-Eve serving for the match at 5-4 and really a fitting scenario that she must truly earn that spot. And sure enough, so was able to close the deal and get her way into the maindraw. A great achievement for Marie-Eve, and I hope that she goes up against Morigami feeling she has nothing to lose at this point because she is playing solid tennis right now and has shown in these 3 matches that she has the mental game to close out when it matters.

Kepp going Marie-Eve and congratulations!
