Re: Sveta in Paris

Definitely a sense of deja vu. I was in Melbourne one memorable Sunday back in January. Shahar Peer beat the pants off Sveta - but then Sveta was not on form then. Now Sveta is on form, and on clay. So this time it will be different. So apart from that one possible match-up in the 4th round, yes, a good draw for Sveta.

I don't know it either! Didn't hear much about her in the last weeks We can't expect anything from Nastya, but if she's in form than it could become difficult already in the second round...

Re: Sveta in Paris

with mauresmo not playing well atm, and clay being sharapova's weakest surface sveta is probably the favourite from this half to make the final. and they'd have to make the semis to play each other. definately a couple of dangers in kuzys half of the draw but all in all a very good draw.

Go the aussies! stosur!!!
and good luck russians: dementieva, safina, kirilenko, sharapova, kuznetsova, bovina, zvonareva, dushevina.

also good luck to: azarenka, lucic, sprem, vakulenko, vaidisova, safarova, ivanovic, groenefeld, mirza, krajicek, kvitkova, larcher de brito, lisicki.

Shahar is a very good clay courter. She has 2 or 3 smaller clay court titles and ook Hingis to the limit in the fourth round last year. Clay really suits her game IMO.

Re: Sveta in Paris

Looks like she's not scheduled to play till Tuesday. It might even stop raining by then.

Shahar's form on clay? well, she fell early, can't remember whether it was Rome or Berlin, just the other week - and that meant Sveta was spared having to play her, having been in the same section of the draw. But anyway let's hope for the best this week, come on Sveta!!

Meanwhile, I've been thinking what chants and cheers we can use to encourage Sveta. I remembered a pop-song from some time around 1990, which was popular in the UK and maybe in other countries too, and it went 'this beat is... this beat is... this beat is technotronic' chanted with an even, quaver-like rhythm. It would fit quite well to chant 'Svetlana... Svetlana... Svetlana Kuznetsova' to the same rhythm. I shall maybe try that when I (hopefully) see her at Eastbourne! That is, of course, after she has done well at Roland Garros...

Re: Sveta in Paris

Thanks for all the information about Shahar on clay.

Mary
p.s. Chants! I think the French have actual songs
they sing to cheer for their Fed Cup team, so that
would be a lot of fun.
