Flavia was awesome during last year's US summer hard court season.
I'm afraid Anna will be one and done.

true, but i still have faith. besides flavia can be really up and down - as seen both this and last week (crushed Cibulkova and Schiavone, crumbled to Wickmayer and beat Stosur convincingly before capitulating to Rezai)
I just hope shes off.

Re: Australian Open 2010

i have no expectations of her beating flavia, if she can keep it close i'll be happy.

such a shame she didn't draw dulgheru, the line above, shes shite.

Re: Australian Open 2010

I hope we at least get to see a good amount of the match, maybe a stream.

Re: Australian Open 2010

I'd be fully surprised if Anna make second round. I don't think a player who lost to Baltacha can beat an 'in shape' Flavia Pennetta. I just hope for a tough match, maybe in three sets.

Re: Australian Open 2010

i looked at flavia's record at the oz open and it is kind of crap, also they haven't met on hardcourts. if anna can come out and play free on stress, then the pressure will be on flavia to win it.

hope anna goes for it and puts up a fight.

Re: Australian Open 2010

GL Chakiiii!!!

I’d like to take Roddick’s serve, Gonzales’s forehand… As well as Federer’s backhand and mental. Then I’d be world number 1, easy! No one could beat me.

Re: Australian Open 2010

but she always start her big matches so slowly. Against Venus she was bageled in first.

Re: Australian Open 2010

as if flavia 1st round wasn't bad enough, she will more than likely have to beat wickmayer 2nd round *if* she somehow gets past flav. lol #12 then #16 in the world to get to the 3rd round. shes screwed.
