Re: Berlin 2008

While I don't really expect to see any immediate improvements to her game, I do hope she'll show up with a renewed appetite for winning and a strong desire to be the best player she can be.

Confusion will be my epitaph

At least you have hopes. That's much more than can be said for myself.

I personally don't have any, that should be recognizable from the manner of my post. When I wrote "our" I meant hopes of those fans who have them, but at the same time didn't want it sound like I am not on the board.
Nicole will continue to suck for quite some time, I have no doubts.

Random yet lingering questions of the past few days:

- to prepare for the clay season she hires somebody whose claim to fame was coaching Henman?

- and what exactly makes Felgate qualified to coach a top 20 WTA player? The only female player he ever worked with, as far as I know, was some Brit no-hoper.

- if she really wanted to rebel and break free, why did she single out Kodat for the axe?

- borderline tanking, no fight, piss poor movement - after effects of mono? Serve also gone? Why?

But the most persistent one:

- average out Nicole's least bad and lousiest performances of 2006-2007, and what do you get? #20-25? Maybe not even that? Heard from and seen on TV about as often as Alona Bondarenko? Less?

Re: Berlin 2008

Nicole plays Dulko, who loves clay and is playing very well right now, in the first round.
If a miracle happened and Nicole won, she would face either Wozniacki or Golovin in the next round.
