If Nicole doesn't win a match at least, she should really pack it in. :o
If we are being optimistic though, she should set up a night fight on AA with Serena.

The draw looks favorable, but i have my doubts given Nikki`s recent form. Still if she can rediscover her good form that she showed at Wimbledon, then i can see her reaching the 4th round. I really hope that Nikki can go on a nice run at Flushing Meadows.

I feel that this part of the draw is wide open, with Szavay slight favourite to come through to the 4th rnd, but everyone, including Nicole, has a chance to play Serena. If Nicole plays well she can beat all of them and even give Serena some problems, but given her form at this point I'm just hoping she plays decently enough to win some rounds. I'm not sure about Cetkovska, she's actually quite tough, good volleys and moves pretty well. I remember her playing Ivanovic I think in Wimbledon. I mean, everyone's tough for Nicole right now. But none of these girls except Szavay can stay close to Nicole if she plays her tennis.

if she go into the 3rd round I hope she will go to the 4th as well, but round by round. please best Petra!

Today`s match was a new low for Nikki. :sad: I don`t know whether to shake her or hug her. It`s unbelievable how far her game has fallen.
