Francesca will turn 30 this year, but hopefully that won't keep her from rockin' the Tour the same way like she's been doing it for almost a decade now:worship:

1st stop Auckland, where she'll be seeded 3rd :music:

And the good thing is Fran has very few points to defend until Wimbledon (apart from Barcelona and Madrid) so let's hope a strong showing will move her up the rankings :)

Fran is also playing Sydney before the AO.

Any news on Fran's doubles schedule? Will she team up with Dellacqua again or will she play with Kleybanova again, which I hope she does, or a variety?

Jan 3rd, 2010, 03:29 PM
her section in Auckland:

(4) Francesca Schiavone (ITA) vs. Q
Stefanie Voegele (SUI) vs. Sania Mirza (IND)
Alize Cornet (FRA) vs. (WC) Marina Erakovic (NZL)
(6) Elena Vesnina (RUS) vs. Alberta Brianti (ITA)

and she'll play doubles with Flavia:eek::worship:

Schiavone starts 2010 with a pair of wins :D

Schiavone def. Cohen-Aloro 6-2 6-3
Pennetta/Schiavone def. Gallovits/Peer 7-5 2-6 10-3

The second set against Cohen-Aloro was a bit sketchy and Fran had a period where she missed at least six consecutive first serves and there's still work to be done on her netplay but no doubt more time on court will sort that out but her passing shots were generally accurate and she hit some great backhand winners in the last two games.

AUCKLAND/Allarme per una borsa sospetta
Campi evacuati, poi tutto torna alla normalitŕ

Allarme sicurezza a Auckland, dove č in svolgimento il torneo Wta che ha aperto la stagione 2010. Una borsa abbandonata da uno spettatore nell’impianto della cittŕ neozelandese č stata notata dai responsabili della sicurezza, che alle 10.40 locali (notte in Italia) hanno fatto evacuare i campi dove erano in corso i match della seconda giornata del torneo in cui era impegnata anche l’azzurra Francesca Schiavone (ha battuto 62 63 la francese Cohen-Aloro) e gli spettatori per i necessari controlli.
“Abbiamo rintracciato il proprietario della borsa - ha spiegato Kerry Watson, ispettore di polizia - ma non c’era niente di sospetto. Comunque meglio peccare per eccesso di prudenza che al contrario. In ogni caso abbiamo reagito con grande prontezza”.
A far scattare l’allarme era stato in un primo momento la presenza in campo della tennista israeliana Shahar Peer. C’č stata anche la protesta anti-Israele da parte di un gruppo di attivisti con slogan, striscioni e bandiere della Palestina nei pressi del Court 4, dove la Peer stava affrontando la slovacca Polona Hercog battuta per 75 63. Si č pensato anche ad un possibile attentato, poi tutto č rientrato nella normalitŕ.

That's the reason why Francesca match started some minutes later yesterday.

I'm confident Fran will prevail :) Cornet still isn't playing that well and she will probably be pretty jittery with r4 points to defend.

I reeeeally hope Fran/Alisa team up in the doubles tournament. I suppose they will have really high seeding as well because they are both top-20 doubles players (maybe No.5-6 seeds).

Rather annoyingly, Fran is still ranked 18th according to TBE's latest rankings (updated after the third round) but as things currently stand, she is much closer to the top-10 now (only 440 points behind Stosur at No.10, who could stretch further away if she beats Serena but I doubt that) and Fran is also exactly 500-points ahead of Petrova at No.19 so Fran's place in the top-20 will not be threatened for a while :D

It's quite strange that Fran isn't playing doubles here. :scratch: I can understand the Kleybanova/Schiavone partnership might be put on hold because Alisa is returning from injury (probably as a result of over-doing it at the start of the year) but I thought Fran might have found another partner.

I think Fran moves onto 3490pts now, which means she's currently at No.9 but there are a few players who can still move up, like Pennetta, Henin and Peer, so I think we need to wait and see. She so deserves a top-10 ranking though! :hearts:

This is Captain Dementinator calling from the bridge of the SS Dementieva...

Listing to starboard and with one main engine out, but still afloat and headed for dry dock for some repairs.
Damage reports show nothing some work cant put right...

Just want to say I hpe to god Fran can win on Saturday, it would be a fairytale, she has a great character and at 29 shows a lot of the youngsters how its done, I am sure she would rather have won than a retirement, but its clear Lena could not go on and to do so would have risked further problems, winning is about lasting sometimes and Fran won fair and square today.

Go out there on Saturday and show the world the older players are where tennis is at, you can stuff ya young pushers, lets see some tennis played the way it should be, go out and win.

Until our next meeting when we will be fully refurbished and ready to go, the best of luck, Lena and Fran have had many good matches and theres great respect on both sides.

Over and Out

ESPN/NBC rarely even showed her OR mentioned her, until she was in the final. They basically treated her like roadkill for Sam.

Sam played the better tournament by far who played better today. Fran kicked ass and who would have thought she'd win in straights?
