Smile Istanbul Cup 2006

22 - 27 May 2006
Surface: Clay
Tier: III
Prize money: $200,000


[1] Myskina vs. Bye
Pironkova vs. Diaz-Oliva
Qual. vs. Molik (WC)
A.Bondarenko vs. [6] Castano

[3] Chakvetadze vs. Shaughnessy
Qual. vs. Yakimova
Krajicek vs. Kotkina (WC)
Senoglu (WC) vs. [5] Mirza

[7] Santangelo
vs. Czink
Cibulkova vs. Harkleroad
Qual. vs. Camerin
Jackson vs. [4] Peer

[8] Kostanic vs. Sprem

Nice enough draw for Anna I think. A qualifier, a couple of wildcards, Mirza and Krajicek not playing so well recently - decent quarter of the draw.

Hopefully Anna can make it to the semifinals and then play Myskina.

Good luck Anna!

She can win this title since Nastya isn't a threat anymore

Of course when I first posted my comments on this draw I didn't realise Meghann Shaughnessy was about to win the title at Rabat. Apparently she has won 14 of her last 20 matches. I didn't realise she could play clay!

I hope Anna will have too much for her or this could be a very short visit!

Yeah, Anna has a tough first round. Hopefully she will be able to get past Meghann!

Good luck Anna!

Daniilidou/Woehr [3] bt Chakvetadze/Krajicek 6-4 6-2

Poor Anya. She's not won a main draw doubles match this year. I suppose it's harder with an untested partnership and I think Anya and Lena have had tough draws. At least she keeps trying.
