Luxembourg

25/9/2006
Fortis Championships Luxembourg
Tier II - $600,000

Dinara should be seeded 4th.
Srebotnik is also playing so the girls should play doubles again probably.

The countdown till Dinara is top 10 is on

I've done some calculations I hope they are right Please check. But I THINK that after Luxembourg (Oct 10 rankings) Dinara WILL be top 10 no matter what happens in Luxmebourg.

On Monday 25th
The rankings will be
10, Nicole Vaidisova 1589
11, Dinara Safina 1541
12, Lindsay Davenport 1500

Next week Nicole will lose her Seoul points of 95 (her 18th result is 1 so a net loss of 94) and with Nicole not playing next week she has 1495 for the October 10 Rankings.

Dinara has 88 points to defend in Luxembourg but her 18th result is Paris QF of 49 points so a net loss of 39, giving Dinara at least (she can add points by making semi or better in Luxembourg) 1502 points for the October 10 rankings so more than Nicole.

If Davenport had gone further in Beijing she could have gained a top 10 spot but she lost in QF giving her 1500 points. Lindsay's points will not change next week but the week after will lose 220 for Filderstadt.

So even if Dinara loses first up in Luxemborug I think that Dinara will be top 10

I don't like the draw Tough opener I hope it is against Hantuchova rather than Tatiana as Golovin is in good form and has a good record against Dinara.

(1)(WC)DEMENTIEVA, Elena vs BYE
(WC)KREMER, Anne vs STOSUR, Samantha
SANTANGELO, Mara vs QUALIFIER
WILLIAMS, Venus vs (6)IVANOVIC, Ana

(3)SCHNYDER, Patty vs BYE
MULLER, Martina vs (WC)RUBIN, Chanda
QUALIFIER vs QUALIFIER
KRAJICEK, Michaella vs (5)SCHIAVONE, Francesca

(7)GROENEFELD, Anna-Lena vs QUALIFIER
PESCHKE, Kveta vs SCHRUFF, Julia
HANTUCHOVA, Daniela vs GOLOVIN, Tatiana
BYE vs (4)SAFINA, Dinara

(8)PIERCE, Mary vs BONDARENKO, Alona
SREBOTNIK, Katarina vs CAMERIN, Maria Elena
DECHY, Nathalie vs BAMMER, Sybille
BYE vs (2)PETROVA, Nadia

Doubles with Srebotnik

(1) RAYMOND/STOSUR (USA/AUS) vs. DECHY/GOLOVIN (FRA)

QUALIFIER vs. KREMER/RUBIN (LUX/USA)

(3) PESCHKE/SCHIAVONE (CZE/ITA) vs. BENESOVA./FEDAK (CZE/UKR)

FLIPKENS/WICKMAYER (BEL) vs. MULLER/WOEHR (GER)

DEMENTIEVA/KRAJICEK (RUS/NED) vs. BONDARENKO A./BONDARENKO K. (UKR)

NAVRATILOVA G./UHLIROVA (CZE) vs (4) GROENEFELD/HUBER (GER/RSA)

BIRNEROVA/VANC (CZE/ROM) vs. GAJDOSOVA/STEWART (SVK/AUS)

CAMERIN /GAGLIARDI (ITA/SUI) vs. (2) SAFINA/SREBOTNIK (RUS/SLO)



I really like this team, Dinara has always been a good doubels player but just needed a good permanent partner and now she has one. They should target YEC next year, this year they have played only 4 events and are th 9th best team all year.

Dinara will play Daniela Hantuchova in round 2. Dinara won easily on clay this year but on clay that is expected. It will be a lot tougher on this surface I think. It should be a big test for Dinara as she hasn't beaten a top 20 player since RG, she hasn't played many either

Tuesday OOP
Court 1 (from 12.00hrs)
1. Birnerova/Vanc vs. Gajdosova/Stewart
2. Camerin/Gagliardi vs. Safina/Srebotnik

Wow I'm actually pretty surprised that Dani beat Golovin!
I think Dinara has a pretty good chance though. Like you said, it's probably better that she face Dani then Tatiana

It's alright, not only did Dinara's nose recover, but they went on to win the match!

Dinara is back on indoor hardcourts
