Re: Russian #1 at the Australian Open

Dechy can be a very difficult round 1 opponent.
Sveta has to be mentally ready for this match, or she will be in trouble.

Re: Russian #1 at the Australian Open

Dechy isn't that easy, but I think all in all the draw is okay and she can make it to the quaters at least!

Nadia Petrova.....♥
Svetlana Kuznetsova.....♥
Venus & Serena Williams.....♥
Mary Pierce.....♥

Re: Russian #1 at the Australian Open

Well,good luck,Sveta,not the easiest draw she could get and I agree Dechy is a first tricky opponent,but Sveta should win.

Best of luck

Sveta

Re: Russian #1 at the Australian Open

Dechy is a tough 1st rounder. Aga could be dangerous. Szavay is there.
Sveta will have to play well every round.

Re: Russian #1 at the Australian Open

When Sveta won the 2004 USO, she came out on fire in round 1 and beat Sesil very quickly.
I'd like a quick onesided blowout of Dechy to start.

Re: Russian #1 at the Australian Open

The french leads in their head-to-head 3-1 but last time they played was in 2005,long time ago and Sveta's worst year...so it's time to turn that head-to-head around,Sveta

Dechy leads 3-1
2004 GOLD COAST HARD N. DECHY 7-6(5) 6-4
2004 FED CUP FINAL CARPET N. DECHY 3-6 7-6(3) 8-6
2005 EASTBOURNE GRASS S. KUZNETSOVA 6-4 7-5
2005 ZURICH HARD N. DECHY 6-4 4-6 7-6(3)

Sveta

Re: Russian #1 at the Australian Open

Hey, she's playing doubles w/ Mauresmo! They're such a fun team
(tho' it's always nice seeing Sveta play w/ Nadia as well.)

Re: Russian #1 at the Australian Open

Good luck Sveta!! Hope you can easily win against Dechy.
Interesting that Sveta plays doubles with Amelie. I was going to ask if she was playing doubles this year, but now I know.
