yes, why else would she enter such a low level tournament. She needs match play and she knows it. Plus she's entered far in advance.

Just because she's entered far in advance doesn't mean she will play. (and I'm not saying she won't either). But alot of players enter events before the deadline, and end up pulling out.

DutchieGirl

Well that's the problem - there are a few players I'd rather to win it than Serena so... :lol: dilemma. ;)

DutchieGirl
Dec 3rd, 2006, 05:35 AM
see i thought it WAS gonna be chn 7

CH 7 already has Sydney and Kooyong - I don't think they can fit Hobart in too.

yeah, but why would she enter a samll tournament in advance if she's just gonna pull out? Unless she gets injured then i really don't see her pulling out.

The Hobart final was televised in Tasmania this year. The 2007 final at least (not sure about semi's) is going to be televised throughout Australia, Asia and Russia. This was announced at a press conference about the Hobart International on November 30th. Here’s the link:

I dunno - but with the WS I always wanna see that they play a match before i know they will play there, coz they tend to get injured alot...

I didn't think any channel would anyway :lol: Not outside of Tasmania - I know there was some channel there this year, but just a local one.

I want a Misa-Aga Radwanska final! :angel: (but Aga's in quallies at the moment).

That means it'll probably end up being Serena-Chaky. :haha:

Ben.

Wouldn't mind that ;) aga-misa i wouldn't mind as well too.

Because I wasn't sure, as your name is DutchieGirl, you support Dutch players, and have the Dutch flag next to your name, but you know about the Australian televison channels. :)

:lol: Maybe I wanna be Dutch? :p

DutchieGirl
Dec 3rd, 2006, 07:49 AM
Are you of Dutch descent?

Nope - but this thread is meant to be about Serena, not my family descent. ;)

Dec 3rd, 2006, 09:07 AM
She'll be there...people said the same thing about Cincy, and she was there...not only was she there, but she made the semis

jazar
Dec 3rd, 2006, 09:11 AM
she'll look at the draw, realise she is going to lose and fake an injury

MrSerenaWilliams
Dec 3rd, 2006, 09:12 AM
yeah....Serena- Chakvetadze :scared: :spit:

dude, lay off the sauce

...you should add Freelance HATER to your sig too :wavey: ;)

Craigy
Dec 3rd, 2006, 09:15 AM

Yeah well the Cincy draw was harder, with bigger names. So I don't think so :wavey:

Modiac.
Dec 3rd, 2006, 09:17 AM
If she can beat Chakvetadze in 2.
I'd say she is back.

Ben.

I hope she will! Let's go Rena! :rocker2:

vettipooh
Dec 3rd, 2006, 01:59 PM
I think it depends on her state of mind after the trial which ends Dec. 15....and the state of her Dad's health. Some people are so insensitive, and need to lay off Serena. :o

great for event in hobart! what a draw card,but really what business does serena have for playing a tier 4 event?:confused: one would think she would play sydney as a lead up to the aussie open!

But in Hobart she is more likely to get more matches played, and more confidence :)
