Re: Eastbourne 2007

Glad to see Nicole is in the tournament at Eastbourne. I really hope she goes on a nice run there to get her grass court season off to a great start.

Re: Eastbourne 2007

i have a fealling that nicole is gonna have a good grass season this year because she will be disapointed with here clay season even tho she still did well at the french she will be disapointed that she got injured and ruined her prep for the french where if she didnt then she probably would have done alot better

Re: Eastbourne 2007

I hope she can have a good run here.

Great opportunity for points.

I'm worried about her backhand on grass though.

Serve and forehand should be just fine.

Re: Eastbourne 2007

I am looking forward to see how she can deal with shorter sliced balls with lower bounce as getting to a good position to strike them was a big problem last year. And like Derek I am concerned about Nicole's backhand. Eastbourne field looks very strong. Great players on the list, it won't be easy.

maybe it won't be easy for Nicole but Eastbourne will be the best grass preparation for Wimby... I'm sure Nicole's more mature and she improved her backhand to this season very well so she's much time to be usual on grass... good luck

Re: Eastbourne 2007

I'm not optimistic about Nicole's performance on grass. But we'll see...

Re: Eastbourne 2007

Nicole will probably only win 2 matches here before losing to one of the top 4 seeds in the QF.
