CATALINA CASTANO'S AUSTRALIAN OPEN 2006 CHEERING THREAD!

Catalina has never passed the first round in Melbourne, however she has only competed once and that was last year, where she fell to American Mashona Washington 6-2 6-3. But in the past 12 months, Catalina has seen herself in the Quarterfinals of Bogota, Acapulco and Stockholm. She has also reached the Semifinals in Canberra and Seoul and the Final in Budapest, as well as victories over Suarez, Schnyder and Dulko. Also, as a qualifier, Catalina reached the 4th round in Miami, falling to Venus Williams 6-4 2-6 6-1. She also qualified for Rome and reached the third round, before falling to Vera Zvonareva in 3 sets. Now Catalina is back in Melbourne and ready to roll! Good luck Catalina!

Tough ask for Catalina, she faces Vera Dushevina who made the final 16 last year. Having said that, Dushevina struggled in her first round match against Craybas last year in the first round, and maybe she will feel some pressure. Catalina has nothing to defend and nothing to lose, vamos!! If Cata wins, she will play either Schiavone or Serra Zanetti....don't like her chances of reaching the third round. :sad: But best of luck Catalina!! :worship:

I wish it was Rossana Ben, but I'm pritty sure it was Catalina :lol:. Well done to her, this is a great win and she is colsing in on the top 30!! She is so cool, I hope we get to see her on a show court soon. She has Fran next, but she can so win that game!! Shes on fire!! (Would you say she is on fore this week Ben?)

Well done babe, and good luck against Fran...not that you are going to need it!!

Yeah!! I saw Schiavone vs. Henin-Hardenne in Sydney, and Franny looked a bit like Catalina if I squinted :lol: (because of the blue headband and similar physics) and I knew that if Franny and Cata both won their 1R matches here that they would have to play. Cata and Franny have never played before...Cata will be confident now but Franny will probably win in 2 sets. However, I think if Catalina gets a chance she will make the most of it, and she could win like 36 76 64 or something if she will win at all. Best of luck Catalina!!! :hearts: :D Thanks for supporting her Mana :kiss:

Catalina is playing Franny on Thursday, tomorrow Cata is playing doubles with Brandi against Australian wildcards. Go Cata!!!

Unfortunately Catalina fell to Francesca 6-1 4-6 6-3 but it was pretty close at the end and Catalina was unlucky not to do a bit better in the final set. Good fight though Cata! :hug:

She is still in the doubles with Kristina Brandi :) :D

Brandi/Castano now face the #11 seeds, Loit and Pratt in the second round. They have a good chance of winning that!! Good luck! :D

Catalina is doing really well so far this year, too bad about today though.

Catalina and Kristina are about to lose to Loit/Pratt :tape: That was a very winnable match...Catalina must hate playing Pratt, she always loses to her which is pretty embarassing.
