Ordina Open - Rosmalen 2008

1st Round against Cirstea.
Then Koryttseva or Rus. A QF against Dementieva will be really tough.

I'm actually really scared how Maria will handle the change between clay and grass in 1 or 2 days.
I'm not sure how good Cirstea is on grass, but I hope Maria can fight through.

That draw looks okay. Dementieva will be tough, but I don't know if she likes grass much.

Like you I'm worried about all the clay tennis. Watching today, I'm not really sure what she gains by playing on clay. There's a lot of hitting on the baseline and the court takes the pace off the ball. Maria has a game that could do well on grass, if she's coached right. She took Jankovic to 3 sets last year, so I'll try to be optimistic.

Cirstea has a big serve and huge groundstrokes. She was overpowering Ana Ivanovic in the Aussie Open. Inconsistent though.

Best of luck, Maria. I like both players so may the best girl win. Hopefully Maria though.

Well it's not going to be easy, switching from clay to grass. Good luck Masha. Sorana is a tough first round opponent but she's had some pretty awful losses lately.

Re: Ordina Open - Rosmalen 2008

Obviously it`ll be interesting to see how well Makiri can adjust to making the change from clay to grass. Still i think that she`ll do well in Rosmalen this week. BTW i`m very happy to see that she and Flavia will be teaming up for doubles again in Rosmalen.

What's the reason you are going to visit my lovely country?

Investigating your football facilities and youth coaching methods. Poland is third world in these issues.

And Holland is the best I would say. The youth is great, you can look at all young players what they have achieved.
We have 3 coaches at the EC!

Re: Ordina Open - Rosmalen 2008

Well to get back to the tennis. I'm a bit worried about Cistera. She a young up-and-comer. She may not have much experience of grass though.

I'm not too sure a long week would be ideal for Maria here. She doesn't want to be burnt out for Wimbledon. I'm still wondering if i might try to go there myself.

With Cirstea you never know. She's talented and can give many top players a tough match.
But also shes's double bagelled twice in a very short time.
