Sic transit gloria mundi - nobody bothered to start this thread until now.

It's Bremond.

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.

USO, 5 and 3.

Bremond can hit one of the fastest 1st serves in the women's game. Old skool attacking player or junkballer forced to rush the net because her groundstrokes suck depending on how you look at it.

Re: Australian Open 2009

I predict she'll win R1, then bomb out to Alona B. in R2.

Hope I'm wrong.

Re: Australian Open 2009

I have absolutely no idea whether Nicole will win her first round today. It's like tossing a coin. More than one Nicole could turn up, maybe Good Nicole, or Bad Nicole, or Extremely Bad Nicole. Or maybe all three, depending on which set you look at. But I know that she could be capable (maybe in another year) of getting to the final or winning the AO one day. Even in her recent form she could spark up and make a big run. Or she could... turn into a puddle of gooey marshmallow in the Aussie heat.

I knew there was something wrong with this post when I read it.

Re: Australian Open 2009

Nicole.
This is getting really bad.

She should take a break or consider a different career.
