Already good opponent for her!

Thanks for the info. I'm waiting the draw,Nicole is not very lucky but Hope this time it will be open.
No Serena please! (even though it will be a great match)

Re: Australian Open 2007

I just hope Nicole can defend her points since the area of rankings she is in now is such a tight race.... But like I said previously, I think that if she doesn't reach the QF (at least) it will be disappointing. It depends on the draw though.

Re: Australian Open 2007

Just for fun before the draw,I listed few players I want Nicole to face at Ao:

Tatiana Golovin-Yea,just because it's two of my favs.
Maria Sharapova-everyone is excepting a match between the both.
Martina Hingis-I would love to this how the match can turn.
After that,maybe why not Kuz,Petrova,Jankovic for the revenge.....

Re: Australian Open 2007

If Nicole plays Tati I hope she will hammer her after their Zurich match. It will be a "revenge match."

I think she will remember "Put her under the water right away"....or something like that but that's will be Nicole's time

(Tati )

Re: Australian Open 2007

I hope she doesn't get Na Li as she seems to be back in form.

Would be great to at least see Nicole in the QF of a slam again.
