Nadia just made the Wimbledon quarters. She also won Cincy and reached the Eastbourne final.
She's playing better now, and only 170 points away from the #11 spot in 2008 points.
Still with a YEC chance if she can do well here and in the fall.

Nadia's early draw
Aug 22nd, 2008, 03:37 PM
She should win these first rounds, although I sometimes fear Peng a little.
Aug 22nd, 2008, 08:52 PM
After Peng comes a high seed, so Nadia needs to be playing well to get anywhere.

Nadia Petrova (RUS) v. Olivia Sanchez (FRA)
Aug 26th, 2008, 08:56 PM
Nadia was broken 2 times in set 2, but she won.
Has to be sharp as the tournament goes on.
Aug 26th, 2008, 09:05 PM
Nadia plays Hsieh, who doesn't have a good serve, but is steady.
Nadia has to be solid with her play. Hold serve, win any break point you get.
You don't want to fall behind and start over hitting.

gl next round nadia
Aug 28th, 2008, 01:05 PM
Nadia plays singles, then doubles with Fran today
Aug 28th, 2008, 04:22 PM
Nadia won 64 62, now comes doubles
Aug 29th, 2008, 11:39 PM
Nadia and Bjorkman beat Anna and Max.
Bjorkman lost early in mens doubles, so he can focus on mixed.
Nadia has a tough match with Pennetta, who is very solid this year.
Nadia has to hold her serve and play well all match
Aug 30th, 2008, 09:03 PM
:worship: Come on Nadia!
Aug 30th, 2008, 10:00 PM
Nadia had a bp at 64 43*, but she lost that game then was broken
Now down a break in the 3rd 64 46 34*
Aug 30th, 2008, 10:08 PM
Nadia lost. That should have at least got to a set 2 tiebreak.
Go win the mixed

she played very bad in that final set :sad: :(
Aug 31st, 2008, 08:35 PM
Nadia is in the mixed QF. 3 wins from a USO title
Sep 2nd, 2008, 12:08 AM
Nadia and JB won their QF, they're in the semis, 2 wins from a USO title
Just listen to JB. He's won a lot of slams in doubles.
Sep 2nd, 2008, 02:35 PM
Good news :D

Nadia lost in her SF.
I still think mixed is Nadia's best chance to win a major. Maybe next year
Sep 5th, 2008, 03:31 PM
Yeah, she definitely can win a major in mixed! But I don't know if Björkman is the best guy!
Sep 6th, 2008, 01:17 PM
This USO it worked out because Bjorkman lost early in mens doubles, so he was focused on it.
One of the Bryans might be a better choice.
If I'm Nadia, I take mixed seriously. The guy does most of the work. The women has to get her first serve in and hit volleys. Nadia can do that as well as anybody.
I think if Nadia just wanted to play doubles, like Raymond, then Nadia could be #1 in doubles.
Nadia's weaknesses are her movement and her forehand and playing big points. Doubles covers up those problems
