Lets hope Flavia brings her end-of-2007 form to 2008:bounce:


Her first tournament is Gold Coast. The list currently looks like this:
Vaidisova
Petrova
Safina
Schnyder
Schiavone
Santangelo
Knapp
Garbin
Pennetta
Mauresmo
Li
Azarenka
Shaughnessy
Stosur
Sugiyama
Peer
Vesnina
Malek
Ditty

With qualies and wild cards that leaves 7 spots open, which should be any of these 12 players:
Szavay, Bammer, A Bondarenko, Safarova, Mirza, Razzano, Vakulenko, Daniilidou, Dulko, K Bondarenko, Govortsova, Cibulkova

i think if Flavia can keep her form up in the beginning of the season then she'll be closing in on top 20 at the end of the year if not in it :D

its all about confidence with Flavs

after the end of last season she should be bursting with confidence:drool:
She seemed to determined then (much more than when I saw her in Rosmalen), she needs to keep that as well:cool:

Got this from GM:

After three weeks of intensive training in Barcelona, It is now official: Gabriel Urpi and Conchita Martinez are the new coaches of Shahar Peer. Urpi, will continue to work with Flavia and their schedule will be almost the same. Conchita will be with Shahar around 20 weeks, especially in the big tournaments and in the tournaments that Urpi will not be able to be with her. Conchita will fly with Shahar to the Australian Open alongside Gabriel.

Not bad. I like Shahar :) And she could be a good sparring partner for Flavia:yeah: (well, I assume they'd train together a lot next year then;))

Flavia, wtf? :smash: its getting annoying.

Zamboni
Nov 28th, 2007, 04:47 PM
hmm, actually it's not bad. Sydney has a 48 qualifying draw, which means 3 qualifying rounds.
Imagine if she wins 2 rounds in Gold Coast, she'd have to rush to Sydney, 3 qualifying round there, say she makes that and wins a round there as well. Way too heavy schedule to go into the AO with.

I do hope she skips the crappy South American tournaments though, but what's the chance?:p


edit: good news. She's smart. Hobart is her 2nd priority, she is Main Draw Only on the Sydney list. She's about 7 out now. So if she doesn't get in the Sydney main draw, she'll play Hobart. Just no qualies. I like it :)

Yes I had figured these 2 things about Acapulco as well:lol:
I'm sure it's a beautiful place anyway, Acapulco is one of Mexico's most famous beaches.

What about the Vina del Mar tournament? Will it really be played?:scratch:

She should stay in Europe and play Antwerp :D The tournament sucks for spectators, but I'll survive it;)

Anyway, she will go to South America anyway...
she won 2 of her 4 tournaments there and reached 4 of her 6 finals. So maybe she should just play there:p

Yeah, like I said, I'm not sure if we should take that match seriously.
Unless my memory seriously fails me, it was the day that she withdrew from the doubles, and her next tournament due to 'personal reasons'. So :shrug:

I have no clue how Cibulkova plays, and how dangerous she is.

Flavia commenta il sorteggio A.O.

A parte la Errani che ha pescato la Davenport il sorteggio non è stato negativo.
Conosco la mia avversaria,ci ho perso una volta ma poteva andare peggio. A Hobart ho giocato contro la Daniilidou,avversaria della Garbin. Ha vinto il torneo,gioca un bel tennis ma Tathiana è solida. Si difende molto bene anche l'Australiana Casey Dellacqua,avversaria della Knapp,mentre la velocità della palla della Schiavone è nettamente più alta di quella della Loit,alla quale però non va lasciata l'iniziativa.
Per la Vinci dipende dal ginocchio: Roberta è al rientro e non gioca da un pò.Se sta bene è più forte della Ruano,cosi come la Camerin è più forte dell'Australiana Wheeler

Flavia :hearts: She was so gorgeous! She has beautiful brown eyes!

Happy she won but her serve, attitude at times and tactics weren't so good. She was very,very passive and the match was mostly on Cibulkovas racket. She kept hitting the ball to Cibulkovas forehand which is her strength. At the end of the second set she looked dead and down. I really expected the third to go quickly. The end of the match was very nerve racking but at 4-4 in the last set her serve picked up. The last game she played perfect tennis and finished the match with an amazing cross court forehand. Should have got through in straight if she was more positive at the end of the second set. But a win is a win! And I got a photo with her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Next round against Razzano......

“Non è stata una bella partita, abbiamo entrambe commesso molti errori, ma ho lottato ed ho portato a casa il match. Era la cosa più importante”. La Pennetta, che ha messo in mostra un’ottima condizione fisica, sa di poter migliorare. A fine 2007 ha vinto a Bangkok, battendo anche una certa Venus Williams: “Non sto giocando ancora ai livelli della fine della fine dello scorso anno, come a Bangkok ad esempio - spiega - . In questi casi è importante però vincere comunque, ti dà fiducia. Oggi l’ho fatto, ora penso al prossimo match”.

"It wasn't a good match,both had too many errors but i fought and i won the match.This was the most important thing.I'm still not playing at the same level of last part of 2007 but in this case win is also important because give you confidence.Today i did it and now istart to think the next match."

Flavia :hearts: She was so gorgeous! She has beautiful brown eyes!

Happy she won but her serve, attitude at times and tactics weren't so good. She was very,very passive and the match was mostly on Cibulkovas racket. She kept hitting the ball to Cibulkovas forehand which is her strength. At the end of the second set she looked dead and down. I really expected the third to go quickly. The end of the match was very nerve racking but at 4-4 in the last set her serve picked up. The last game she played perfect tennis and finished the match with an amazing cross court forehand. Should have got through in straight if she was more positive at the end of the second set. But a win is a win! And I got a photo with her!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But only one because my bros camera went dead. :sad:

Thanks for the report :D

Razzano is very unpredictable :lol:
But hopefully Flavia can beat her and make the 3rd round ;)

Really? I disagree. Szavay's gonna be a really good player, and I expect her to go far.



and she lost in R1 :lol: i said this was the weakest part of the draw :tape::help:

I set my alarm, which I am so going to regret:tape:
Apart from the last 2 games, all the games in the 1st set were close, 6-2 is flattered.
I've also counted a break point conversion rate of 0/3 so far, maybe 0/4 even (brain's not working perfect this time of the day:p)

And I thought there was a long break between sets:unsure:

Jan 16th, 2008, 03:01 AM
Yeah I noticed the long break. Hope it wasn't Flavia.

My friend Mark is at the match and he text me saying she's playing pretty decently, but her serve is letting her down big time. No surprise there!

Thesis done yet Linda? ;)

No surprise indeed, the serve seemed back end of last year, but it has been shaky ever since Gols Coast :(

I started rewriting the conclusion, so getting there ;)

She finally breaks! :scared: serve it out:scared:

Apparently Razzano is tiring. But I don't want to be optimistic where Flavia and her serve are concerned!

Yup. She's the only player I know where you can pretty much guarantee if she wins a set, she'll get broken immediately in the next. :tape:

Where's the form from the end of last year? :confused:
Lets not forget that she lost to Razzano then as well, and in the end she had only 3 really good wins (Mirza, Peer and Venus).
But yeah, she's not exactly shining now. She's having really tough matches against players ranked around her, almost looks like this is where she belongs then.

Close game now, 2 bp's missed already. This is your last chance, Flavia!

It's over:bigcry:

I don't get it, she fights her way back to 3-4, and then loses her service game so easily. :weirdo:


Though, all in all, I'm not unhappy with her Aussie season, she got some decent wins, and no really bad losses.
Now on to Fed Cup:dance: and then the South American tournaments. She should do well there ;)


and yes, we could steal the rollercoaster thing from nastya-fans ;)

I didn't go yesterday but on Monday Flavia struggled against the wind. So I guess she didn't have the wind in the last two games. Razzano is a really solid player so not shocked she lost. A litttle dissappointed though.
