First round is good, very winnable against Virginia. She only has a slice backhand, not much power overall. But the second round, on the other hand... I suppose anything could happen. Serena could still be injured, or Nicole could find some great tennis, but it's very hard.

The first round match looks more favorable for Nikki than last year`s match against Iveta. However the second round looks very tough with a likely meeting against Serena. However i think that Nikki has a glimmer of hope in it. I really hope that she will do well in Roland Garros and build some positive momentium.

Agreed. It's not a bad draw on paper. First up a junkballer way past her prime, and then Serena may still be injured.

Tuesday it is. Does this mean her second round is Friday? Or will it be Thursday? I don't like this 3-day first round thing. :sad:

This probably means she'll have to play several matches in consecutive days - look at the weather forecast for tomorrow (and that has improved considerably from the forecasts of a few days ago, which gave Monday and Tuesday as near total washouts).

The 3-day 1R format is terribly unfair to those who play only on Tuesday - even more so when rain delays are expected.

There are no Ct. 17 streams, correct?

Sexysova
May 26th, 2009, 01:34 PM
yeah, no cameras :o

Merseykmight
May 26th, 2009, 01:46 PM
But Wimbledon has the cover for 1-18..

HowardH
May 26th, 2009, 03:13 PM
Oh Nicole what a loss :sad:. 6-4 6-3. Virginia doesn't even have a topspin bh or any power.

Merseyknight, there are probably actually cameras on every court, but we can only usually find streams for the main courts. Hopefully Wimbledon will be better, just about everyone I want to win is losing at the moment :o.

Nicole isn't taking it so hard, she knows she played very bad today, conditions were bad (very windy) and she knows she made a lot of unforced errors even gave credit to VRP for playing good and Nicole doesn't see it so tragic, she hopes she will bounce back on grass.. I will translate the article tomorrow.. too late atm..

I don't believe what she is saying anymore. She needs to start backing up what she says on court.

All i can say about Nikki`s performance today is that i`m glad that there were no camera on Court 17, which means that we were spared having to see Nikki`s bumbling around. :sad:

well.. everybody can have an off-day which Nicole had couple of times even in her prime.. and that a bad off-day so I wouldn't overreact anymore, I believe Nicole will bounce back strong on grass.. POJDME! :bounce:

Nicole, please have a successful grass court season. Time is running out.

Some days the extent of her slump hits me really hard. Other girls seem able to turn it around when they need to, etc.. but Nicole just has seemed unable to :sad:

I'm so afraid for Wimbledon. A R1 exit could result in disaster.

C'MON NICOLE!!! :bounce:

I believe in you, believe in yourself.
