Re: Australian Open 2009
First two rounds are very winnable for a Nicole that is in form. Svetlana is struggling with injury-related things right now, so that could work out for Nicole. 4th round.. Aga. Winnable for Nicole. Aga is going to be under pressure. Serena doesn't look in good form, and might be upset (Serena would be QF). Who knows? If the Nicole that has earned a spot in our signatures shows up, I think she could easily make the second round and have a shot at a DEEP push.. but I also wouldn't be surprised with a 2-6, 1-6 loss in the first round. Nicole is truly a dark horse. I hope she realizes where her career could be headed with a bad result here. Start the comeback NOW, Nicole.
