Well the draw has been released and amanda has faired a little better than last week with a qualifier in round 1. It get tougher in round 2 with either of two great clay courters in marrero or AS zanetti. Beyond that there is an out of form meghann shaughnessy in round 3. I'm not looking beyond there at the moment because amanda just isn't playing well enough at the moment to warrant that . But anyways hopefully she can find some form and put in a solid performance this week; i know she is still capable of causing some upsets.

 Coetzer def Zanetti 7-5 4-6 6-2 :)
Great fighting win for mandy :), she will face Paola Suarez next who beat her earlier this year in Acapulco and is in great form. Amand ahas a awinning record but will need to be at her absolute best. A win in that match would see her face off against either Iva Majoli or Anna Smashnova for a place in the semis. If she were to play her best tennis then she can defintiley reach the semis which would be great.

Congrats Mandy on a great result! :bounce: I'm usually more sad when she loses a 3-set match than when she loses a 2-set match, so I'm also very happy when she wins the 3-set matches! :bounce:

It will be tough, but possible! :bounce:

I must say her play looked solid :) Which is always good of course :)

A great result for Amanda...next up Iva Majoli..another one of my faves and a great player (particularly on clay). Its nice to see that Amanda had the toughness to edge out Paola who has been playing very well lately. If Amanda can pinch one of the first two sets from Iva I think she might be too tough in the end. But then of course iva really destroyed her last week :(. Either way it seems that Mandy is playing much better.
Linda, Irish...how was Amanda's play against Paola...as good as ever?
I saw the start of the 3th set and the last 2 points. At the start of 3th set there were a lot of breaks, but Amanda's play looked better than Paola's. The last 2 points were just marvellous!
I hope Amanda can keep this going and get revanche for last week! Come on Amanda!:bounce:

One more thing, Amanda looked good on court, confidental and fresh. Not like somebody who's having a dissappointing year so far :)

Iva Majoli def (13) Amanda Coetzer 6-3 7-5
Although I love Iva i was really cheering for amanda in this match because i wnated her to hav e a chance at the final :sad: It definitely was much more of a fight than last week which is a good sign. But Amanda is assured of falling out of the top 20 next week, after her 100 or so points come off from hamburg where she is not playing this year. That makes me so sad :sad:
Apr 20th, 2002, 12:56 PM
Better result then last week, that's indeed a good sign.
Still I was dissappointed and sad when I saw she lost :sad:
