Stuttgart 2008

Nicole will play here next week.

Not really expecting much, but Nicole has had some nice results indoors previously so maybe she will surprise.

Re: Stuttgart 2008

If she loses at the first rounds of every tournament this year, I don't care. She won't go anyway to Doha.
She should take a break and comeback in 2009

Re: Stuttgart 2008

Who cares if she goes to Doha? That isn't all that professional tennis is. As a die-hard Nicole fan, I want to see her play well regardless of where she is, who she is playing against, and what time of the year it is. If she finishes this year strong we can expect a ton next year. So, please don't say you wouldn't care if she lost in all of the first rounds. Just saying.

You're probably right. But with all the points she earned at the 07 indoor season coming off soon, if she did so she wouldn't have access to the Sydney MD and wouldn't be seeded at the AO. So she has to try to defend those points.

Or perhaps more accurately, to give the impression that she's trying.

Re: Stuttgart 2008

Of course she has Na Li in the first round.
Someone she has never done well against.

Re: Stuttgart 2008

Another disasterous showing from Nikki, which isn`t much of a surprise at least to me.

Re: Stuttgart 2008

She should have played Tashkent.
She must be dumb if she thought she could show up in Stuttgart and be a threat to win matches.

Re: Stuttgart 2008

Well at least she tried.Playing na li in the first round is tough to handle.Crappy draw for her.
But you're right perhaps she should play lower tournaments to win matches and get her confidence back.
She has to know what she wants for th rest of the year but especially what she aims for next year.
Moscow will be also tough with many top players there
