damn, close losses :( can't believe Maureen lost to Marlene who's been in pitiful form :confused: at least the first round win should be enough to push her just into the top 100.

Thanks for the results everyone.

Randy, I think Maureen can make it inside the top 100 with her first round win. I wanted her to win this match to seal the deal :(. I love Maureen's attitude and her commitment to the game. This will probably be her best year ever.

I love Maureen too, she's a fiery competitor on court, but off-court she is a very pleasant, and friendly person too which makes me like her all that much more.
There's no reason why she shouldn't or can't be consistently in the top 100. Her fiestiness does help her often, but it's a fine line between putting that emotion all on the line and going a bit too overboard to the point where she can sometimes lose the plot a bit and lack focus. In 1999 she was able to control that, and it brought her all the way up to #49 in the world along with some solid wins and results, particularly in reaching the 4th round of the Australian Open, 3rd round of Key Biscayne, and the semis of Cairo. Unfortunately injuries did play a part in her sliding back down some, but I hope that she can keep building off her wins and get back to a steady top 100 spot. :)

way to go Anastassia :D

I saw Rodionova at the US Open and the girl has got the goods, she just needs to put it together. She gets overly aggressive sometimes. Its very all or nothing with her...much like Reeves.
Great win for her :)

1999 was her best year ever. This one would be second, I believe?

I have also see Rodionova.... and she's a head case. She swears, and then claims she didn't swear. She is constantly muttering to herself in russian. She is quite inconsistent and does not hit that hard...... nothing special really.
Meilen should have won that match.
