Indian Wells 2007

Next tournement.

Entry List on the website

Pacific Life Open 2007 Entry List (By Ranking)

1.Sharapova, Maria 2 RUS
2.Petrova, Nadia 6 RUS
3.Hingis, Martina 7 SUI
4.Dementieva, Elena 8 RUS
5.Safina, Dinara 10 RUS
6.Jankovic, Jelena 11 SRB
7.Vaidisova, Nicole 12 CZE
8.Chakvetadze, Anna 13 RUS
9.Ivanovic, Ana 14 SRB
10.Bovina, Elena 14 RUS

Apparently,Nadia will not come. (Have no idea if it's really true).

Nicole should do her best here.She has no points to defend.I hope at least a semi-final.
In 2005,Nicole lost 6-4 6-4 against Mary Pierce.

Go Nicole!

Re: Indian Wells 2007

Nicole could really make a move for the #8 ranking since Elena is gonna have a lot of pts to defend. But Jelena is coming in with nothing to defend either, so...

But Nicole really needs a good result here. An early loss would be really bad...

Re: Indian Wells 2007

The field is weak.IMO, Sharapova and Petrova are the only "threat" for Nicole because I really believe she could defeat the others girls without problems.Nicole's first problem is her head.So,we never know with her (and if you want my opinion,that's the most boring thing about her, suddenly she can lose one point and lose her mind-acting like a crazy girl it's funny but it not help her to win a match.)But if she wants to compete with the top, Iw should be the easier tournement to win.

Re: Indian Wells 2007

Yea the field is some what weak. Who knows Nikki might win her first Tier 1 even but I'm thinking way too far ahead.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Re: Indian Wells 2007

I think Jankovic, Safarova, Sharapova and Petrova are bad in each round

Re: Indian Wells 2007

I was looking at points to defend from now until Berlin and Petrova has 900 points to defend and LenaD has 400. Nicole sould be able to hopefully move into the #7 ranking if she can do well in IW and Miami.

It was also interesting because is Nadia and LenaD struggle to defend, they may both be out of the top 10, then it would be likely to have Nicole, Jankovic, Chakvetadze, and Safina in the top 10 which would be a big change.

Sorry I found thsi interesting since the top 10 hasnt changed much over the last couple years.

NICOLE VAIDISOVA

Dokic - Hantuchova - Zakopalova - Minella - Szavay - Bammer - Safarova
Stanciute - Panova - Gubacsi - Cibulkova - Cirstea - Hofmanova - Cetkovska

Re: Indian Wells 2007

Indian Wells and Miami are so important for Nikki in terms of her ranking.

Any early losses could really hinder her rise up the ranks.

Re: Indian Wells 2007

I heard that Nadia won't play in IW, is it true? so if it's true Nicole will be 4th seed and how is it possible that Jankovic isn't before Nicole in ranking? she should get 125pts but Nicole is before Jelena

Re: Indian Wells 2007

Nadia is still on the entry list. I had not heard anything about her not playing.
