She couldn't, she would have missed the new year's celebration with her boyfriend.

Okay, fine. If she just plays well at the Australian Open everything is good. I'm just not optimistic...

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Honestly, I wasn't optimistic since I heard about Ovi, the fact that she was only gonna play Sydney before the AO, and why was she practicing with male juniors? I get the feeling she dislikes the new racket, as well. I'm pretty sure she'll lose first round at the AO. Must she have a boyfriend? I mean, some of her best results came when she was single...

Well that's disappointing. Not the fact that she lost but her attitude

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

Kiri not a great start into the year at all... But I hope the AO is going a bit better, I'm going to be optimistic.
So she screwed up qualies but I think it's still way too early to blame her new bf on the performance (in general I'm not a fan of blaming the partner when a player sucks cause they're all adults who know what they have to do, it's their own fault when they have their priorities wrong )

Ovi's fans named Kiri as the reason why he was slumping. Just doing our part.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

does the racket make such a big difference though? she uses the exact same string with the ezone now, which she used on her previous racket.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

don't think she would switch if she wasn't 100 percent confident in the racket; remember she spent the off season in u.s. with boyfriend, a new routine for her; probably practicing a lot less. relationships and tennis don't always go hand in hand. if it's the racket she will switch back; her head obviously wasn't into the match. we will see what will happen.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

I also agree with not blaming it on her being in a relationship. Personally it bothered me when Ovi fans were calling her a jinx and whatever so I'm not about to do the same thing. Her coach said she had a good off season.. maybe she did. She just arrived in Australia later than she probably should have. It was only her 2nd match of the year.. there's no need to panic just yet. I believe she will have better results in Melbourne. And hopefully in doubles still.

Re: Starting the year in Sydney Qualies

I think she'll be fine for the Aussie. Just working out the kinks. Her season basically just started and definitely don't think it's her bf. If she's happy with him, I'm happy.
