Mary's Rome Draw

Mary opens against a Qualifier and if she wins that match, she'll play Ai sugiyama who has a bye in the first round. Svetlana Kuznetsova is the other seed in that part of the draw. The winner of Mary's section plays Serena in the quarters...

I am not gonna predict anything this time... don't care if Mary has an easy draw or a difficult one.. I just hope she wins!

C'mon Mary!

Well, the qualifier will be match fit after coming through the qualifying rounds - but thankfully Mary's doubles matches should have done much the same for her. I would be surprised if Sugiyama managed a win over Mary on clay, I must say...Mary won their only other match on clay at the start of 2002 when she was only just returning to the tour after a long injury lay-off, and she's surely in better shape now than she was then. Plus Sugiyama is in a bit of a slump. But hey, I was all positive and forward-looking last week and look what happened!! But still, I do feel confident...

Thats exactly Why I'm not predicting anything
Last week I said something like "I dont expect Sugiyama and Likhovtseva to beat Mary on clay" so

I agree with you *laughing*...
If she is in her usual form she should win but aftere this
bad match streak you never know. It's tought to play a quli
because they already have played some matches.
But we must wait and see and hope for the best.

The qualy could be Golovin, Benesova, Marrero or Jankovic !
So, it's not easy ti play against one of these players !

Mary can beat them, but, I can't predict anything ! I don't want to look at the draw after this first round match, because Mary is able to lose ... I've decided on taking match after match ... we'll see

"I felt very strongly that it was not the right time for me to retire, and there were still some great things for me to accomplish in tennis. So once that really clicked inside of me and I realised that, I just started to work very hard, and to try to be the best that I could possibly be."

Mary vs Dulko

An interesting match. I think it is complitely open.
I really wish that Mary can find her usual form.
If she does she will win easily but I donät really know now.
Dulko played a very good match against Lindsay earlier in Indian Wells.
And she has played some great tennis so far on clay.

Come on Mary, try everything and never give up.
Everybody knows that you are a really smart tennisplayer,
try to play that kind of game this time.

Well in the other discussion in this forum that there seem to be two doubles draw. One with Mary playing Daniela and one with Vicario.

For me i would have her playing with Vicario.

Mark
