Last year Misa lost against Stosur in the first round. Sadly, but at least she can only do better this year.
There's a good chance that she will be seeded, as she will be #33 after Roland Garros and she's also playing Birmingham where she can only gain extra points.

Great news! Looking forward to the grass season.

Yep, it's great that she'll play Birmingham as she should be seeded there, and can hopefully get some more points and be seeded at Wimby. She may well be anyway but still - nice to make sure of it. ;)

Latest news is that Misa will be seeded as #31 because Zvonareva and Na Li withdrew.

oh cool... well Misa got Obziler in the first round, and then possibly Kloesel in the 2nd, and probably Chaky in the 3rd. Not a terrible draw I guess.

What a great draw for Misa! She really needs to take advantage of this amazing draw. She really can upset Chakvetadze I think, but she has to do it first. This can become her real breakthrough tournament! I really hope so! :D

Michaella Krajicek NED (31] - Tzipora Obziler ISR
Sandra Kloesel GER - Katie O'Brien GBR
Viktoriya Kutuzova UKR - Tatiana Poutchek BLR
Angelique Kerber GER - Anna Chakvetadze RUS (8)

I think it's a good oportunity for Misa. I don't wanna say she should make x round (did that in Birmingham *cough* and look what happened). ;) But she should be able to pick up some points here. :D

Whatzup
Jun 24th, 2007, 01:18 AM
Yes indeed. She really has to make advantage of this draw and minimal reach the third round. She has opportunities to go even further. But the problem with Misa is that you never know. It seems that always when she has good opportunities to go far in a tournament, she loses a stupid match against a much lower-ranked opponent. So I hope this time she will really take advantage of it! Good luck Misa! :D :yeah:

6-2 6-7 6-1 :woohoo:

Apart from the second set, when she forgot to put pressure on Obziler, a good win.
Next is Katie O'Brien. No question Misa should win that.

Very, very exciting match!

Congratulations Misa! Great win.

WD on win over Anna and good luck vs Laura. ;) Great chance for Misa to go deep in the draw.

Gerben
Jun 29th, 2007, 09:20 PM
And in doubles she won too! With Aga they beat Camerin/Dulko 6-3 6-7 8-6, after trailing 2 breaks (2-5) in the final set. They had to sustain serveral matchpoints but survived. Well done girls and good luck in the next round!

I think they form a very good team. :)

Hehe I know Misa was up pretty late...at least till after midnight. :lol: She has to play mixed today...hope she can win it too. Then I guess USnday will still be a rest day - she's probably gonna need it. ;)

Has a nice chance against Granville, although it would have been interesting to see her play Hingis.

Gerben
Jun 30th, 2007, 11:33 AM
I hoped she had to play Hingis. Less pressure, more interesting opponent, better court probably.
She is now expected to win, which is far more difficult. But I think she can do it.

I was looking forward to the possible Misa-Hingis clash too. Oh well. Misa was expected to beat Obziler and O'Brien and she managed to. Hmm I thought Misa had played Granville before (I was thinking Hobart 06 - dunno why :lol: ). But I thinkMisa should be able to do it. Hingis played crap against Granville.

Good analysis! I believe she can do it too. I saw the last set live via internet at my workplace (boss was not there) and really liked her groundstrokes, Misa thought so too (heel goed!). Will be a great run if she reaches quarters, and then Jankovic maybe, interesting. Jankovic will make her run and then Misa will stand no chance unless Misa dictates the rally, oh well, just wait and see.

Gerben
Jul 1st, 2007, 06:21 PM
I was surprised to hear her shout and scream in Dutch. Usually she does that in Czech.
From what I've seen from Rosmalen, Anna was supposed to make her run also. Misa somehow managed to find a good answer during the match.
I think Anna was good practise for Misa. Jankovic be will harder to beat, but Misa showed that she's able to compete and make it a real match.

Gerben

Stupid rain again... :mad:

But at least Misa leads Granville 6-3 4-1 (two breaks up in the second) :D

Gerben
Jul 2nd, 2007, 08:25 PM
Misa wins! Though she was broken back once and needed 5 match points, she finally did it with 6-3 6-4.
Well done Misa, QF at Wimbledon! :woohoo:

:bigcry:
Misa lost 6-3 3-6 2-6...
She totally lost it after the rainbreak, at 6-3 *0-1. Don't know what happened, but way too many errors and problems serving. Too bad, great chance for SF missed.

But, great tournament of course, must give confidence for the rest of the season. Therefore: :bowdown:

She had an excellent run and absolutely nothing to be ashamed about. Great showing from Misa.

I'm so happy for Misa. She made her best appearance not only in Wimbledon, but also in all the grand slams. She's got what it takes to :rocker: the rest of the season. And Misa and Aga can make some surprise in doubles I think :)

And I have one pic for you - from Warsaw's doubles (in attachement). The quality may not be the highest, but Misa in it :bounce: :D

Gerben
Jul 5th, 2007, 01:41 PM
Misa also lost in mixed doubles yesterday and doubles today. :sad:
Still a very good tournament for Misa, too bad that tournaments always end with a loss (unless you win it).

Well, it was a great 2 weeks for Misa! Reallyhappy for her that she could make the QF. Pity about the rain delay in the QF, otherwise I think she would have won that match. It seems she and Aga do make a nice doubles pair too. So now we have Misagi, and Misaga. :lol:

I'm not sure father Radwanski enjoys this partnership. In one interview he said that was Misa's fault they lost in doubles, cause Misa played too much :eek: I really don't like sisters' father - he seems like Sharapov to me at times :(

And Go Misa - I hope you can keep this form up to US Open!

Well I think that Aga & Misa are still ok with each other though - they are doing an exhibition in Scheveningen (Den Haag) today at the Mets courts because it's the 50th anniversary of the tournament there. ;)

And I also heard that in the second round doubles, Misa played really bad in the last set, and it was Aga who got them through that match (but that was the day Misa played against Chakvetadze already so she was very tired by then). But I mean it is a bit stupid to say Misa played too much - the rain delays didn't help at all!

But I do wish that Misa would play some more with Szavay anyway. :p

I think it's very hard to say if she will make top 10 or not. Lots of things can happen, and I prefer not to say stuff like that, but of course I hope she can. I just hope she can crack the top 30 this year. She has 55 points to defend up until Stuttgart, and she's playing Palermo, San Diego, Stanford (? one other US tourney anyway, can't be bothered to look which), Canadian Open and USO in singles (plus New Haven doubles only). So she has a good chance to make top 30 by USO at least. ;) Then who knows. Even after USO she hasn't got heaps of points to defend. She had 55 from Stuttgart, and she made Hasselt semi's which was around 80 points I think (could be a bit more or less).

You lazy girl :p
Palermo, San Diego, Los Angelos, Toronto, (New Haven doubles), US Open.
Hasselt was also 55 points. She has a total of 167 points to defend the rest of the year.

Hmm if Hasselt was 55 then maybe Stuttgart was less. I thought Hasselt points were more than Stuttgart. And well, I'm at work - so it's not like I can check everything all the time. :p I had all the other tourneys right. I even said New Haven doubles only... I just couldn't remember LA. :p But I just checked points and it's 55 for Hasselt and Stuttgart. So basically, Misa has 165 to defend for the rest of the year. (12 from Palermo and 43 from Budapest included in that). ;)

Yes OK - if you are counting the 2 points from USO, plus the couple of one pointers she still has, but those she will defend in any case, because she gets a point just playing a match at a tourney. So those are really inconsequental, hence I didn't include them. :p

She will only 'defend' those points if she plays those tournaments. In case of an injury she won't and thus lose those points. I always try to take everything into account.
But you're right, the big points are 12, 43, 55 and 55. Should be no problem to defend those points.

Actually, not true - she has enough other tourneys this year to make up at least 4 of the 6 points I didn't include (if she didn't play USO then she gets 0 obviously), so it wouldn't matter for those 4 other points anyway. ;) Which is why I didn't bother to account for them as those 4 points aren't even in her points total of her best 17 at the moment (most recent tourneys are always added in the case of multiple point tallies that are the same), so Canadian Open, New Haven etc from the end of last year aren't even included in her current best 17 as she has more than 17 tourneys (Whereas Prague and Birmingham would be in her best 17 total). ;) Only the USO I guess could have been taken into account, but for 2 points I didn't think it was worth it. ;)

So yeah, I just looked at points she got from actually winning at least 1 match. ;)
