Re: Prague 2009

She plays Alla Kudryatseva first round, and then the winner of Pironkova and Bammer.

Not an easy draw for her current form.

Good luck, Nicole...bring it home for your country (and your ranking )

Have fun, Andrew!!!

Re: Prague 2009

I'm back from the first day, didn't see Nicole training, she probably trains in Sparta club where she always trains when she's in Prague

good first round IMO, not bad at all, she can beat Kudryavtseva, she even beat her this year..

Re: Prague 2009

Kvitova/Vaidisova vs Ivanova/Lapushchenkova

Nicole didn't start well on serve, couldn't hit the first serve and both Russian returned really well to get the first game, then from 1-3 down, both Petra & Nicole started to play much better, almost didn't make any unforced errors, Petra had some problems to keep her fh in cross-court rallies and made some wild unforced errors, also it was seeable Nicole & Petra are not doubles specialists but really managed well to take the first set 6-4. Nicole's serve was simply amazing in the first set since the second game..

In the second set Petra lost her serve early and she had a lot of problems to hit the first serve in throughout the set which was really bad because both Russians returned pretty well throughout the match. No chance to break Russians, Petra simply wasn't there in rallies, I don't know if she lacks confidence or if she's out of form because she can play better than she did today.

In the third set tie-break, Nicole & Petra started very well, Petra finally became more agressive in the net and hit some volleys winners after Nicole pushed both Russians and prepared easy volleys for Petra with her forehand. The match point was converted on Nicole's serve, Nicole hit a big first serve in and then pushed Lapushchenkova with her FH and Petra easily finished off the point with a volley winner. Both were really happy in the end of the match I think they won't win next match unless Petra gets better and Nicole keeps it up. We'll see, definitely this match was a good quality and it was great to see Nicole wins a match again though it's doubles but nevermind I guess, any win is important I was really happy

also I have to mention Nicole hit some amazing volley winners throughout the match
