Only Hingis & Safina's places are secure in the draw. Ana could be drawn in both the top or bottom half. You'll have to wait until the draw is released to see what happens :)

hmm sam should do well in the first round, but im not sure with sams possiblity of performence ere cause no idea wats next on the list for her. hmm foxsports can tell us but not even the tournament it self how stupids that.

Ben.
Dec 29th, 2006, 10:41 AM
well i can't really tell if sam has a good draw or not cause fox sports haven't shown us the whole draw :( stupid of them, honestly :(

well sam should win her match over peng cause she's ranked higher & has the home crowd barricking for her. but however we shouldn't underestimate peng cause she can just whack the ball hard on both sides double handed & she can well be threat to sam you know. all sam has to do is play her game & not underestimate peng too much.

sophie up against sugiyama. well soph is quite capable of beating her but it just depends on whether she's up to the challenge or not & how she can handle sugiyama's consistency on the court.

well pratt against bovina. pratt's gotta a better chance winning this match cause she's got home support & has played a lot more matches than bovina in the past few months. but however bovina whacks the ball hard & if she's on she can score an easy win over pratt.

golds gotta a chance against castano. i mean if golds plays unbelievably then she can well beat castano.

so our aussies have got good chances of reaching the 2nd round, but it's just whether they can execute it or not.

Ben.
Dec 29th, 2006, 10:42 AM

gelrad
Dec 29th, 2006, 12:16 PM
how come the top 2 seeds don't get first round byes like in previous tier 2's?

First this is a tier 3, and also usually those who got a bye got the last stages the previous week....

matthias
Dec 29th, 2006, 12:16 PM
because Goldcoast is tier III

jimbo mack
Dec 29th, 2006, 12:20 PM
oops, i meant tier 3. don't the top 2 seeds at a tier 3 usually have a first round bye?

matthias
Dec 29th, 2006, 12:23 PM

bye´s have nothing to do with your last week performence

jimbo mack
Dec 29th, 2006, 12:28 PM
strasbourg gave top 2 seeds 1st round bye and that's a tier 3. gold coast used to, but not this year. is it the tournament's choice?

maybe since Canberra is not longer played the same week, they want to give 2 more players the chance to play

so there's no set rule by the WTA for first round byes in tier 3's? it's solely the tournament's choice?

Canberra was never played this week it was always the same week as Hobart and Sydney! :wavey:

so there's no set rule by the WTA for first round byes in tier 3's? it's solely the tournament's choice?

I thought all tier III's had been changed from 30 draws to 32's???

Who knows! :wavey:

it think so
some torunament just try to attract higher ranked player with a bye for the top2 seeds, or even top4.
then she would just need 4 matches for the title :)

It was said a couple of years ago at the Gold Coast tournie that the top players didn't want the byes. They wanted the extra match play leading into Melbourne. Which is why they played here, so didn't want byes & missed match play. So the tournament organisers did what the players wanted. This was 2 or 3 years ago....
