Venus Training Hard For Sydney

Venus Williams of the US was spotted in Paris, France today training on the red clay of Roland Garros for the rebound ace event in Sydney. Not something you would normally see an American player doing, but Venus has set her sights on having a stellar season in ATC and will be training hard througout the year to get to the YEC.

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/21239247903venus.jpg

"Well I came to Paris to get some shopping in before I head back to Australia. I was put out really early in the Mondial tournament so I had a little time to do some additional training on clay, before I headed back down under.

It is a little unusual for a player to be training on one surface while competing on a totally different surface, but I have my reasons. My coach and I began to notice that the longer the rallies went on, the more my game would break down. I started out fast in every game and could hold on to some leads because of inconsistancy on my strokes.

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/Venus03.jpg

The clay will force me to get more balls back into play and construct my points on any surface. Plus getting a head start for the clay season isn't a bad idea in itself."

Bartoli working hard down under

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/3116/U397P6T12D2958066F44DT20070602090125.jpg

France's world number 27 Marion Bartoli arrived in Sydney three days ago after her crushing 6-0 6-0 defeat at the hands of American Venus Williams. Bartoli has been working hard on her rebound ace form, hoping to improve her record on the surface before the Australian Open next week.

"Of course it was incredibly hard to have such a loss in my first match on the ATC tour, but I've been working hard this week and I feel like I am ready to get out there in Sydney and just give it everything I have."

Bartoli will be hoping for a variable draw as she starts her Sydney campaign on Monday.

Vamos.

Lourdes "im gonna make the semis!"
http://i145.photobucket.com/albums/r203/takako_moriyama/lourdesdominguez040506_ES.jpg

After being knoked out twice in the Quater finals. World number 6 Lourdes Dominguez Lino, is confident saying "i dont care if i make a final, my first Thing on my To-Do List is to make the semis. Im Not Comfortable On this court but I know i can do it, I have to keep my head high"

Lourdes was spotted with Close friend on tour Marion Bartolli and Sydneys DFO outlet, Going to Sketches and buying some shoes, just to be more casual

SHe went out and trained with Marion, And then had a quick hit with her Partner Tamarine Tanasugarn, who looks both very confident for the doubles tournament.

"well i think we can make History!, we need to Keep our heads high, and hope we play our best!"

In the first round of doubles they verse Close friends Shiavone/Stosure whom they had a hit with last week, for they get ready for doubles

"yes THey are both Experiences doubles players, Sammy has a big sereve, and Franchesca can be very agressive when shes at the net, so we dont know what to expect"

Myskina finally gets to Sydney

http://msnbcmedia4.msn.com/j/msnbc/Components/Photos/040605/040605_myskina_hmed_9a.hmedium.jpg

The Russian star, this weeks debutant finally arrived to Sydney, after having to deal with many problems.She had to promovate herself, so she took some naked photograph sessions, some travelling around and playing exhibitions.That's the reason why she came late to Sydney for the tier II Medibank international.Plus she had some problems on the plane with a boy who threw up on her.

She didn't feel a very warm welcome here though, obviously she got a very warm welcome from the organiser, but not from some players.Nathalie Dechy, for example, attacked her right away. "I had a bad feeling I'm not welcomed from some girls." Rumours have it that Dechy wanted to attack Myskina off guard, when she was practicing.She wanted to bitch slap her.

But Myskina continues to practice and practice.She hopes for a good appearing and an early match against Dechy.And peace on the tour.

Myskina ready for her first round match

http://images.tvnz.co.nz/tvnz_images/sport/tennis/wimbledon_06/myskina_forehand_d.jpg

Anastasia Myskina is ready for her 1st round match against Maria Elena Camerin.She says she wants it very bad.But guess why?She could play the 2nd round against *cough* Nathalie Dechy *cough*.She wants to play with her and obviously wants to win.Myskina respects all of the players in this game, also Dechy, but just says Dechy is a biAtch.But first she must concentrate on her first round opponent Camerin, who has a better serve on this particular service.Allthough it will be tough to concentrate after all the quotes from Dechy, that say that Myskina is slut...

Chakvetadze Looking Forward To Sydney
http://i86.photobucket.com/albums/k89/xXxPosterGirlxXx/AnnaChakvetadze18.jpg

Anna Chakvertadze is looking forward to playing this week in Sydney. It's the first time she has been to Sydney and is loving it already, "I have never been here before, but I think it's great so far, the people, the food, the atomosphere, everything!!"
Chakvetadze had her first practise this morning, "I love the courts, they are very similar to Gold Coast and the other events I have played so far this year. I have had good results on these type of courts too. I'm getting used to these and hopefully I can peak her before the Aussie Open"
The Russian is looking to follow up on last week marvellous run at the Gold Coast where she got to the quarters in singles, "I played great last week, even though I lost in the quarters, I knew I could have won that match and that is giving me more confidence day by day. I took a two or three days off after the Gold Coast last week, I started trainning on Saturday and I worked on all the things that didn't work as well as I would have liked it last week. I know I have improved and I just hope week by week I can prove that on court. This is the first Tier I of the year, and I would love to get far in it."
After her great run last week the 20 year old has improved to 9 in the world rankings, " I'm very happy with my rank, and I hope to improve it alot before the end of the Aussie season, this is definitely one of my favourite parts of the year"
The Russian, who also won the doubles last week with Ashley Harkleroad, is ranked number one in doubles with the American. "I'm soooo happy to be ranked number one, Ash and I had a great tournament last week. We are playing together this week again and hope to go far again. I can't believe we won last week and it was our first time as partners. I hope it last forever!!"
After her practise session the 20 year old signed autographs for all her fans "Wow, it's just great people asking me for autographs. Everyday there is more people and I love it!! I want to thank all my fans for all the good wishes for this week and the rest of the year, I hope I can make them proud!"

Davenport loses...again

http://www.lindsaydavenport.com.ar/lindsay-davenport6.jpg

Sydney, AUS -- Lindsay Davenport is now on a three-match losing streak. The American crashed out of the Medibank International in round one, defeated by countrywoman Venus Williams in three sets.

'I'm just so frustrated,' said Lindsay. 'I needed to start this season off well, because we'll be on the clay soon, and I'm really not looking forward to that. If I don't have a good run next week, then I can see myself really struggling in the rankings, and I don't want to be in that position.

Between her matchs, Séverine having fun swimming with dolphins !
To Séve, a champion have to have fun if he wants to keep on winning !


After having won the first two titles of ATC circuits, Séverine Brémond is very much at one with herself ! "I have never played of this way ! I have the impression that i am able to make everythings with the ball ! ". But her debuts of tournaments are yet so difficult although she won in two sets today against Tatiana Golovin !

" Yes, it was a tough match today ! I respect so much Tatiana, she is one of my friend and i think that this kind of match are different... We played both different today and i think we can play all both better than that ! Due to rain, nobody was able to play yesterday so i have to play again another match after against...euh... Tamira Paszek, i believe ! Concerning my futur opponent, i know nothing... I have just learn that she is young and has a great fighting spirit !

Bartoli happy with improvement

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/3116/marion14.jpg

France's Marion Bartoli was today dissapointed after her lose to compatriate Amélie Mauresmo in two tight sets before admitting that she couldn't have hoped to have done better.

"I feel like I did everything that I possibly could to win and I'm still so happy that I got the chance to get revenge over one of the Williams sisters - we'll see what happens against Venus hopefully later in the year!"

When asked about her plans for the Australian Open in Melbourne next week, Marion laughed and admitted she hadn't thought much about it.

"I know that it'll be tough for me - rebound ace tends to stick a lot more than other surfaces and for that it doesn't sit very well with my game or my movement but I'm going to give it my best, get in there and see what I can do!"

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/12003-ausopen237.jpg
Venus serving a 126 mph serve to compatriot Ashley Harkleroad

Looking to be in good form downunder, Venus Williams (USA), says that she feels that she is playing well on the rebound ace surfance. She put on an amazing serving display today at the Mediblank International and looks to be a contender for this prestigous Tier I title.

"Well, now I am focused on my next match. Amelie and I know each other's game well and it will be the biggest test for both of us this year I think. If I can get into the semis, I will officially announce that I am a contender for this title. I really have to focus on this quarter-final match though, and I wish her well also, she's such a great person."

"Oh, yeah..............don't think I forgot. I heard what you said in your press conference Bartoli :fiery: Bring it on!:lol:

Making their debut on the tour, the Russian/French paring had a remarkable 7-5 6-7 7-5 over dominate pair Ashley Harkleroad and Anna Chakvedatze - the world number one doubles paring.

Earlier today the semi-final match up pit Dementieva/Bartoli against Kirilenko/Paszek who had beaten earlier in the week the all french paring of world number 1 Séverine Brémond and Amélie Mauresmo.

After the match Bartoli laughed with her partner and both agreed they have exceeded expectations

Medina Garrigues def. Dementieva 4-6,7-5,6-3

Anabel Medina Garrigues continued her impressive form on tour, by advancing to the semifinals of the Medibank International in Sydney. She got through to the quarters with some ease before running into the 7th-seeded Dementieva. Dementieva started out well rushing out to a 4-0 lead, after that the match was much closer. Elena was able to hold onto a break to win the first set, but then Anabel started to win the important points and put Elena in trouble.

Next Anabel faces the only unseeded player left in the draw Venus Williams. Anabel is the favorite and has some confidence going into the match, however Venus has clearly improved this week, and has received tons of praise. It's going to be a tough match, but Anabel would like nothing better than a chance to take on top-seeded Bremond in the final again.

Venus Still In Good Form Down Under

Today at the Medibank International, American Venus Williams dispatched Amelie Mauesmo 6-3, 7-5 and advanced to the semi-finals of the first Tier I rebound ace event in ATC. Williams came into this event unseeded, and with no pressure.

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/capt_sge_dtu13_060606151603_photo00_photo_default-376x512.jpg

"This was a solid victory for me today. Amelie was playing well throughout this entire tournament, and for me to hold my serve as well as I did against her, was great for my game and confidence.

I play Anabel in the semis and am really looking forward to the match. She is also playing extremely well and is one of the players to beat on tour. She is an extremely consistant player, so when I go for my shots, I know I have to committ them it before I execute. That will be key for me winning this match I think."

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/oly_full_getty-71020509me116_2006_french_o.jpg

Despite a slow start to the beginning of the season. Williams feels confident she will do well at the first Grand Slam and hopefully build momentum for the rest of the season.

Venus and Marion Bartoli wrote the most articles this week (3 each), so they will both receive a 3-point ranking bonus :yeah:

Congrats Venus :)

Lucie's coach told me she was going on vacation, so she may not be able to send points with 5 aces, but I still think she deserves POTW for taking you out Sev :p

5 Aces is ludicrous. Close to impossible to defeat.

5 Aces is ludicrous. Close to impossible to defeat.

Really have to agree about the 5 aces, especially at a Grand Slam. Maybe the ace should be given to players that are on thier worse surface and advance further than other players on their worse surface.
