Nina.
Sep 25th, 2009, 10:56 AM
It's fine Cara. When there's a draw somebody has to finally make a thread :lol:
First to matches shouldn't be a problem at all but it all comes down to her form.

no no no. Draw is fine, I don't know what to think of Dina's form. :lol:

Well yeah that's why i can't judge if it's a safe road or not , it should but there's a lot of chances that it won't .

The surface is different from last year :o The tournament organizers found that it was too fast in 2008 :sobbing: so it got relayed and is now a "slow hardcourt" on ITF standards :crying2:

All of Dina's success when this was a fast, indoor, carpet court is now ruined by yet another slow, outdoor cement court :o

;16552983']Ooh! New tourney! God bless Dina! Davai and never give up! When's her first match?

This week, not sure the day because she has a BYE in the first round. Second round most likely against Kanepi (or a Qualifier), who she has a winning record against :hearts:

osseous
Sep 26th, 2009, 02:31 AM
Oh yes. I guess their last meeting was in Australian Open '09. But whoever her opponent would be, I am praying for her win! C'mon Dina!

Caralenko
Sep 26th, 2009, 03:07 AM
Yes, in the AO - but I don't like to underestimate Dinara's ability to implode :p Don't give us another Toronto, DinDins!

osseous
Sep 26th, 2009, 03:10 AM
Me, too! I hope Dina will play one of her best tennis in there. Ooh! I hope so too. I don't like what had happened during that Toronto. Really shocking though. Go go go Dina!

Nina.
Sep 26th, 2009, 10:55 AM
Fist opponent is probably the qualifier. When did Kanepi win her last match?

PersephoneDisco
Sep 26th, 2009, 01:11 PM
I agree with Nina, Kanepi's been down in the dumps along with my CSN :sobbing: She just goes on court and wanders off mentally and plays craptastic...but then she could easily come to court and play aggressive tennis :p

Yep. It was 3 sets and she lost one of them in a TB, I think...
It wasn't a great performance but she redeemed herself later on.

Tokyo 1Rs are underway, so Dina will be playing after they are complete. Give it all you got! :yeah:

Yeah, that was when all the seeded players lost earlier on that day and Dina was playing scared on that match , maybe thinking the upset bug might catch her, lol.

Wow, I really miss Dina's great form last year. Where is that now??

Being a general nuisance? Why, yes! :D

Was Ana one of the first matches? Cos there was a stream for that today and it ended with Cornet's match. The dude decided to not do any more...

Got this from the livestream thread - Venus vs Nastya, Sharapova's match and Date-Krumm vs Wozniak on the tennistv.com Streaming tomorrow
