Dubai 2008

Don't know what to think about Nicole's game since the AO... Then we'll see it in Dubai.
Can't wait to see her draw


Sharapova.Vaidisova.Vesnina.Bondarenko.
Wozniacki.Kirilenko.Goerges.Petkovic. Azarenka

Re: Dubai 2008

it will be very tough, she can get every opponent in first round except TOP 4 but I think she can breakthrough

Re: Dubai 2008

I know that they're working on what she will play instead of Fed Cup. I hope it's Charleston she can gain a lot of points here

Yes, it's nice to see her back on the court.

At what about Estoril? I know this is a small tounament but it's on red clay and there were some nice players last year.Well, she could play at Charleston but the surface doesn't suit her game at all so I don't expect her to go far

I can't agree.. she made the quarterfinal on green clay two times and she beat Myskina in Charleston.. I think it was just shame last year and choking in 2006 against Castano

I think there will always be better players than her on green clay.This surface means nothing for the rest of the year while she could have some training on red clay at Estoril (and win it) before playing at Berlin.But anyway, this is not me who choose for her and her team

Re: Dubai 2008

Good to hear Nicole is planning on playing another clay tournament since she won't play Fed Cup. She can gain pts before Roland Garros...

Re: Dubai 2008

I've been dreaming a match between Sharapova and Vaidisova for a while.
Maria is no 5 seed that means they may draw with each other in the first round.
Good luch,Nicole...

Maria Sharapova Nicole Vaidisova


come back please!!

Re: Dubai 2008

I hope she gets a draw that she can do something with and isn't rusty.

Good luck Nicole!
