The 2nd round is going to begin with five italians that will play and there isn't a thread for them yet :shrug:

I'm very lazy, but i suffer without it ;)

Here's the summary of the first round

Mara Santangelo d. 24 Tathiana Golovin FRA 64 46 64
The surprise! I'm sure about Mara strength, but i didnt' expected this win, also if AO is good for her. I'm so glad for this win! She could reach the third round (but against Srebotnik won't be easy). Good luck Mara! :bounce:

Maria Elena Camerin d. Q Yvonne Meuberger AUT 64 62
Finally a good win after too matches lost. Maria Elena needs to find confidence. Let's hope it succeeds. I'm afraid she'll stop in 2nd round, however good luck against Bychova! :bounce:

Roberta Vinci ITA d. Meghann Shaughnessy USA 75 64
Well done Roberta! Meghan is always a difficult opponent... now good luck against Bartoli :bounce:
Roby can do it but it's difficult forecast the winner. If she pass the round there's Kim :scared:

20 Flavia Pennetta d. Q Cara Black ZIM 62 26 63
Flavia... it's Flavia! :worship: :hearts: one set lost against Cara Black, otherwise it was too easy :rolleyes: She is strong enough to reach the 4th round (she should beat Sucha, she can beat also Vaidisova), then probably there will be Mauresmo... who can say? :angel: Good luck beauty! :bounce:

15 Francesca Schiavone d. Antonella Serra Zanetti 62 75
Sorry for Antonella, but Francesca deserves it. She is in a fantastic period and she's going to reach her best ranking. Only Justine stop her in Sidney. Castano and Groenefeld are with her capabilities. In the 4th round there's Kim :angel: Good luck Francesca! :bounce:

19 Dinara Safina RUS d. Tathiana Garbin 60 61
The only sorrow of this first round. :sad: It seems Tathiana lost without playing. Good luck for the next tournament!

Mara Santangelo d. Katerina Srebotnik SLO 76(5) 57 63
Very well done, Mara! 55 winners for beating Srebotnik. Brava! :bigclap:
Now it won't be easy against Kuztnetsova. Good luck beauty! :bounce:


Maria Elena Camerin d. Ekaterina Bychkova RUS 46 76(7) 62
Congrats Maria Elena! She seems to have found her confidence indeed ;)
Eight MP saved for the first 3rd round in a Slam! The future is pink :cool:
Good luck against Petrova :bounce:

15 Francesca Schiavone d. Catalina Castano COL 61 46 63
Well done Francesca, who repeats the 2005 result (3rd round) :yeah:
I didn't expected one set lost against Catalina, but it's succeeded... :rolleyes:
Good luck against Sanchez Lorenzo :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Roberta Vinci d. 27 Marion Bartoli FRA 64 36 63
Great Roberta, who repeats her best result in a slam (like the last Wimbledon) :bigclap:
Now Kim :scared: Will Roby be able to compete with her? It's hard, very hard, but with a bit of luck... :)
Forza Roberta! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

One derby Francesca vs Roberta in the fourthround would be fantastic! :) :D

... and Penneta won the double match too (6-7 7-5 6-0 teaming with Dementieva! :D
I am not sure about robertaīs ranki9ng, but it seems that after this Open at least 3 Italians will have their best career ranking (Schaiavone, Pennetta, Santangelo... and maybe Vinci!) And Oprandi, too!!! This 2006 could not have started better than that...! :drool: Well, Schiavone could have won Sidney, but... :rolleyes:
Too bad that the new ranking system (which I dislike!) does not recognize quality points... mara would have jumped even more up in the rankings!!! :bounce: :bounce:
Letīs not ask for too much, though... ;)

3rd round fatal for the first two italians :sad:

14 Svetlana Kuztnetsova RUS d. Mara Santangelo 63 61

6 Nadia Petrova RUS d. Maria Elena Camerin 61 62

These were expected results (also if i hoped in some more points from Mara), however for both Mara and Maria Elena this has been a good AO. So congrats and good luck for the next tournaments! :) :D

A great showing by the Italian Brigade! :banana:

Despite the losses yesterday, a terrific showing by Mara and Maria. :hug:

I have high hopes for Francesca getting to the Sweet 16. I believe Flavia has a legitimate chance to derail Nicole although it will be tough. Roby has the toughest of opponents but Kim is not 100% so who knows?

Forza!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

15 Francesca Schiavone d. Maria Sanchez Lorenzo ESP 60 60

16 Nicole Vaidisova CZE d. 20 Flavia Pennetta 64 62

2 Kim Cljisters BEL d. Roberta Vinci 61 62

Only Francesca remains to defend italian colours in the 4th round. Will she be able to beat Kim and let us dream yet?

Forza Francesca :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Francesca :worship: :fiery:

I think she has pretty good chances to beat Kim, if Kim is not really fit

the 2 others out :(

Disappointed in Flavia & Roberta. I expected closer matches! :( :(

Kim's showing against Roby indicates she wont be a pushover but Fran is in great form so I'm hoping for a battle.

Forza Francesca!!! :rocker2:
