Onto Miami now for Nicole. Another Tier I where she has nothing to defend.

Re: Miami 2007

Nicole has reached at least the QF in 3 of the 4 tournaments she has played this year. I hope she can have a good run here. It will be tough with everyone playing.

She will play her 2nd round match on Friday or Saturday.

Re: Miami 2007

If they use rankings after IW then I guess she would be seeded #8.

Excerpts from article on Nicole's last time playing in Miami back in 2005 (against Ana). Remember this?

Quote:
Tears & tantrums from teenage brigade

It was a case of tears and tantrums on court number six at the Nasdaq-100 Open on Sunday.

Watching Vaidisova is a draining experience, with enough highs and lows to last an entire night in Miami's exuberant South Beach region.

She was ranting, shrieking (but not grunting) and then, after being broken for 6-5 in the second, came the sudden tears.

Her body was shaking and her face was buried in the towel.

When she rose from her chair, her face was cherry red, and the ballboy at the net - the only person face-to-face with her during the changeover - looked visibly shocked.

Tears in tennis have flown for years but to see them during a third-round match, in such an innocuous setting as Miami's Court Six, was quite perturbing.

After the match, she refused to shake the umpire's hand, annoyed at an incorrect line-call in the second set tie-break, and stomped off the court.

Re: Miami 2007



How could anyone forget that meltdown against Ivanovic?

Ack! Bad memory! Fortunately, her on-court attitude has improved quite a bit since then. She's still got a somewhat fiery on-court temper of course, but she does a much better job of managing her emotions and keeping them under control. Heck, Federer (of all people) was reportedly throwing tantrums and smashing rackets when he was a kid, and look at him now!

Re: Miami 2007

Hoping for a good draw and no Sveta pls!!!!

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: Miami 2007

I'm hoping for Nikki to stay away from Sveta and Nadya.

A QF clash with Maria or Justine would be just .
