I know we have a summer hardcourt thread but as it is the final slam of the year & Dinara has her first top 12 GS seeding, I think the US Open deserves its own thread.

Hopefully Dinara can go deep here cause she has a big opportunity to close in on the top 10. In the race Dinara is at 10. Dinara is at a career high of 13 & has nothing to defend in New York.

Good Luck Dinara

Hi Mary!

Well, I wish I could say I've been gone on a fantastic holiday, but nothing is less true.
A lot of shit has happened in the last 6-8 weeks, so that's basicly my excuse!

Hope you are ok!?


Sorry guys, for being

Dinara Safina, Elena Dementieva, Jelena Jankovic, Nastya Myskina, Nadia Petrova, Alicia Molik, Ana Ivanovic, Sveta Kuznetsova, Elena Bovina, Misa Krajicek

Sorry about the shit happening, Meeek. I hope things get better,
and stay better. I'm fine. Busy as hell at work, but that's
just the way it is.

Back to the topic so we don't piss people off: a friend of mine
saw Ms. Safina at the players' party last night, and said she
looked fabulous. He said she was hanging with the Russians.

My friend knows I'm a big fan of Ms. Safina, so he's going to make
sure he cheers Dinara on for all of us, and keep an eye out for
her on the grounds.

Beygelzimer won't roll over vs Safina - her confidence is high after a good 50K tournament win last month (beating Flipkens in the final) and reaching the Top 100 for the first time.... Alot of people remember how she was so close to beating Capriati in the French Open..... she can play and having seen her this Summer she is getting better and better............... So I think will be a good R1 match.

I hope Dinara can get deep into the draw so she can gain some confidence while kicking ass at the same time!

Go Dinara!

DINARA - ALICIA - DANIELA
