2008 Cheering thread - season is over - 2008 W/L: 50-24

Lets hope Flavia brings her end-of-2007 form to 2008


Her first tournament is Gold Coast. The list currently looks like this:
Vaidisova
Petrova
Safina
Schnyder
Schiavone
Santangelo
Knapp
Garbin
Pennetta
Mauresmo
Li
Azarenka
Shaughnessy
Stosur
Sugiyama
Peer
Vesnina
Malek
Ditty

With qualies and wild cards that leaves 7 spots open, which should be any of these 12 players:
Szavay, Bammer, A Bondarenko, Safarova, Mirza, Razzano, Vakulenko, Daniilidou, Dulko, K Bondarenko, Govortsova, Cibulkova

I may not dare to show you
I might just walk away or crawl under another rock
It's so tempting

No just that I forgot Amelie at first

I haven't actually seen the list, I just read the entry list closely

Re: 2008 Cheering thread

i think if Flavia can keep her form up in the beginning of the season then she'll be closing in on top 20 at the end of the year if not in it

its all about confidence with Flavs

after the end of last season she should be bursting with confidence
She seemed to determined then (much more than when I saw her in Rosmalen), she needs to keep that as well

Re: 2008 Cheering thread

Got this from GM:

Quote:
After three weeks of intensive training in Barcelona, It is now official: Gabriel Urpi and Conchita Martinez are the new coaches of Shahar Peer. Urpi, will continue to work with Flavia and their schedule will be almost the same. Conchita will be with Shahar around 20 weeks, especially in the big tournaments and in the tournaments that Urpi will not be able to be with her. Conchita will fly with Shahar to the Australian Open alongside Gabriel.
Not bad. I like Shahar And she could be a good sparring partner for Flavia (well, I assume they'd train together a lot next year then)

Re: 2008 Cheering thread

hmm, actually it's not bad. Sydney has a 48 qualifying draw, which means 3 qualifying rounds.
Imagine if she wins 2 rounds in Gold Coast, she'd have to rush to Sydney, 3 qualifying round there, say she makes that and wins a round there as well. Way too heavy schedule to go into the AO with.

I do hope she skips the crappy South American tournaments though, but what's the chance?


edit: good news. She's smart. Hobart is her 2nd priority, she is Main Draw Only on the Sydney list. She's about 7 out now. So if she doesn't get in the Sydney main draw, she'll play Hobart. Just no qualies. I like it

Re: 2008 Cheering thread

Good move by Flavia not to play the qualies in Sydney

Like Linda I hope she won't play these Micky Mouse events in South America

Re: 2008 Cheering thread

i doubt she will not play in South America....she really loves Acapulco (every player who plays there say it's an amazing place ) but surely also Carlos will play there so maybe Flavia will decide to stay in Europe...............let's hope so
