Fingers crossed for a good draw.
*Sigh* I remember when Kiri would constantly make the third round. Could really use that this year.

draw out this evening...scary to be unseeded :unsure: so used to seeing her among the seeded :awww:

Maria is due to have a good draw :angel:

Hate it when I wait for the draw and find out one of my favorites plays a qualifier first up :rolleyes: I want to know who :(

Landed in a good section no consistent power players there

Good draw, she's lucky to play against a qualifier again and Radwanska isn't the best seeded players she could draw,so now it's up to Maria:rolleyes:

Nikkiri
Aug 28th, 2009, 06:07 AM
I guess it depends on if shes healthy or not.. she needs to keep us updated on her site :lol:

aga pulled out of new haven with an injury so hopefully maria can cause the upset :devil: :D

King Aaron

One match at a time. Really happy she drew a qualifier. A win would be great, then we can look at the possible match with Radwanska.

I'm really looking forward to the pictures though. It'll be really weird seeing her in the normal adidas line. :lol:

Playing Koryttseva is a good draw. We all know Maria,so we can't say at 100% that she'll win but it's a really good 1st round.

If she plays against Radwanska, maybe she'll play on a tv court ( i hope a livestream will work cos i think that the US Open's website only broadcasts matches in the USA)

I'm not sure too:rolleyes:. Sabine played a good match but was really inconsistent, i think her shoulder injury is still hurting her a bit as she served pretty bad (lots of doubles and not really powerful serves). I would be curious to see Sabine against Ana, i don't know who i would cheer but it would be a nice match with amazing shots:drool:.Who would you cheer?(hard question:lol:)

I didn't see Caro, just the 1st game but i think Caro would win because she's really confident and plays better than Sori on hardcourts (for the moment).But Sori wasn't really the favorite on clay though;)

Ana without a doubt. Liked her longer. Gotta stay loyal :lol:

And well Sorana beat Caroline a couple weeks ago on hard court. I just think Sorana has the game to take down Caroline IF shes not making a million errors.

And good that we will be able to see Maria tomorrow :D

kirivanovic
Sep 1st, 2009, 10:58 PM
:lol: And Ana really needs points and to come back at a decent level. Sabine is still young and can wait 1 more year to go far on this tournament(i didn't mean that Ana is old btw:D). Anyway, with this kind of matches,i'll have less pressure and i'll be happy to see one of them in the 4th round at least.

Caro has troubles to go far in GS and playing Sori won't remind her great memories (LA and RG were crazy matches won by Sori),so yeah,it could be interesting.:hearts:

With our luck, not sure that we'll see Maria, maybe she'll pull out or the livestream will be broken on the court 13:lol:

Yes! :hearts:

Oh and a little bit about Igor today. :help:

Big serve by Andreev? Witten would poke it back, retreat to the baseline, and settle in for a rally. Powder puff second serve? He took a lot of those with his two-handed backhand and pounded them crosscourt, for winner after winner. No clear opportunity to end a point? He ran side to side, with surprising agility for a man of his build, and he waited. Much of the time, he was able to outlast Andreev, who made an ungodly number of unforced errors today.

Without taking anything away from Witten, it must be said that Andreev didn’t seem himself today. I thought he might be injured, but couldn’t find a “tell” in his movement. Maybe it was Witten that was troubling him, or, as Jesse himself told me, maybe it was the ignominious notion of being down against a qualifier after the first set.

We’ll never know, because the Russian pulled a fast-one, come interview time. Although there was an official announcement that he was on his way to the "Player’s Garden" (the area in front of the entrance to the player lounge, which acts as a overflow meeting ground if none of the three media center media rooms is available), by the time those of us interested in speaking with Andreev made the two-minute walk to the garden Andreev had taken off.

I'm not sure Ana will get past R1 :help: but if she made it to Sabine she'd have a good chance as Sabine is still double faulting a lot.. but then again I'm sure Ana would too. :lol:

And Sorana if she plays like she did today she can easily take down Wozniacki who was far from impressive. But she is so inconsistent can play amazing tennis one day and then lose to number 150 the next. :lol:
