Re: DFS Classic Birmingham

Considering that Nicole is in a slump at the moment Tamira would be theoretically the strongest player in that half (ranking-wise)

But Niculescu is a promising young player and Tanasugarn plays always very good on Grass

Let´s hope the best - Gemma Tamira

Re: DFS Classic Birmingham

Well, she played very well at Birmingham last year, and had a chance to take out Sharapova, so hopefully if Passos is with her this week he can give her something to build on and work with. I'd just like to see her win a couple matches back to back for her confidence.

Re: DFS Classic Birmingham

Tamira will play against Tanasugarn (THA) in second round, she defeated Niculescu 6-3 6-4

Viel Glück Mimi

Re: DFS Classic Birmingham

Well that sucked.

What the hell is going on with her? What was the last month she actually held serve? Does anyone remember?

This is more than "fitness". It's like she isn't even trying.

Re: DFS Classic Birmingham

This is just pathetic

If she will lose in R1 in Wimbledon she should better take a break and work on her game

Re: DFS Classic Birmingham

She should play Tier III and Tier IV Tournaments now, even ITF´s to get some confidence back Playing only Tier Is and Grand Slams won´t help with getting bagel after bagel
