Re: Gold Coast 2007

Let's hope she gets the new season off to a good start!
And in the meantime enjoys her (brief) off-season

Re: Gold Coast 2007

Five of the world's top-20 players will play in next month's Australian Women's Hardcourt tennis championship on the Gold Coast, organizers said Friday.
World No.7 Martina Hingis heads the field, which also includes Russian Dinara Safina (11), Serbian Ana Ivanovic (14), Germany's Anna-Lena Groenefeld (19) and Israeli Shahar Peer (20).
Hingis will return to the Australian event that launched her comeback to tennis last January.
She reached the semi-finals and went on to re-enter the top 10 in August.
Asia will be represented by China's Li Na (21) and two-time champion Ai Sugiyama (26) of Japan. The Australian Women's Hardcourt championship takes place from Dec. 31-Jan. 6 at Royal Pines Resort.

Re: Gold Coast 2007

Ah Gold Coast, a lovely little tournament in a lovely little city (okay not so little any more we have been invaded!). Excellent Choice by Dinara, obviously the girl has a high level of intellect

I'll be there - woohooo for me
Nice that Srebotnik has signed up as well. Dinara has a doubles title to defend & with Srebotnik I reckon she can do it. Not to mention I think they are a good enough team to make YEC next year if they play a full year together - so go girls!!
In singles, hmm semis last year, I feel as 2nd seed she is moving on up this year

Re: Gold Coast 2007

This is not an easy draw. Lena L is capable if not consistent. Ai or Stosur.
Ana in the Semis.
This is a very real test to start Dinara's year.
And Sydney will be even tougher. She has to be ready now. I hope Dinara is well prepared.

Re: Gold Coast 2007

Dinara was watching Leva Vesnina today.
I have seen Dinara practice many times in the last few days. She's been practicing twice a day. I didn't get to see her practice today though was too many matches to watch

Re: Gold Coast 2007

Dinara plays doubles with Srebotnik on New Years Day.
Last on East court 1, very crappy court. But I'll be there to cheer them on

That's today, right? It's already tomorrow there. (I know that
doesn't make any sense, but Happy New Year, enjoy the tennis,
and cheer for all of us! Thanks!)
