Very dissapointing! That was the price Angie played poorly..no offense...no power... She will be out of top 100? She was lucky to win last year and she admitted that this thime she had big burden on her shoulder! OK, G...mentally...you still weak...Regroup yourself...win or lose is fine but how you played the game is important! Good luck in Busan!:sad: :fiery: :confused: :mad: :(

Benny
Sep 25th, 2002, 09:34 AM
Maybe Marrero was just too good Iokamaya...
She will pick herself up from this and will get back to where she is on no time.
The year after a player has the best year of their career(usually when they are young) is never as good.

Tennisku
Sep 25th, 2002, 09:40 AM
Roughly analyse, Angie plays without burden when she faces higher ranked player. In oppossite, when she plays lower ranked player, it is a bad tennis she plays. Oh G ! pump your mental. This time we admit that it's very hard for her to defend her tittle due to the burden on her shoulder.

V.Melb
Sep 25th, 2002, 09:42 AM
hehehe. Your right Eggy.

But you have seen Wynne. She's not very strong. You need power to beat Conchi....... you haver to hit 'down' on her topspin.... its not easy for Wynne to do this.
We can see Conchi taking control already. :(

Actually, Wynne defeated Marrero with 3 sets, and Angie could not do, what happen with her?
at least she can do even beter!

rhz
Sep 25th, 2002, 10:02 AM
Angie wasn't lucky last year! she is a really good player, but not consistent enough or her mentality is still fragile! she still young for God's sake, don't lose hope on Angie yet. Losing doesn't mean she is a bad player. come on guys! keep on supporting her and Wynne! without support from us they wouldn't be stronger!

King Lindsay

Poor Wynne. But that was a good fight. I didn't expect her to take out Conchita.

I think Martinez is a major threat to Tammy. Tammy should be able to handle Rossana, but Conchita should be a very tough match. If she wins, she'll probably take the title, IMO.

This tournament could prove good for the Spaniards: Martinez nito the 1/4 finals, Arantxa vs. Vivi will guarantee another Spanish quarter-finalist and Marrero will play Pratt for a 1/4 spot.

Vamos Espana :) !

ARANTXA’S GOODWILL BACK-FIRES
by Barry Wood

Arantxa Sanchez-Vicario enjoyed herself so much at the Wismilak International last year that she went around telling everyone. Out of the 30 players in the main draw, six - 20 percent - are from Spain, and Arantxa had to have something to do with that.

But her goodwill towards the tournament backfired on Wednesday when one of those she told and possibly persuaded to come, fellow Spaniard Marta Marrero, upset defending champion and Indonesian icon Angelique Widjaja. In the first round. In straight sets.

There was no pressure on Angie last year. She was 16 and playing her first ever Sanex WTA tournament, and she didn’t expect anything of herself. Even though she was the Wimbledon junior champion. And, she had a foot injury and almost didn’t even play, so the pressure was definitely off.

But that was then. This year it was different. Now she’s no longer ranked 579. She’s pushing the door of the top 50, she’s beaten Anna Kournikova at the US Open, 17th ranked Anna Smashnova at Wimbledon, won the French Open juniors. Now people expect things of her, and she expects things of herself. That equals pressure.

"I felt pressure because I'm the defending champion," Widjaja admitted. "Usually I don't get nervous, but I was today. I hit the ball short and that made it easy for her to make me go right and left, like the wiper on a car. It was a good learning experience for me."

She whacked her forehand pretty hard and that kept Marrero on her guard, but too often it didn’t go where it was supposed to go and for that Angie had to pay the penalty of a 6-4 6-3 defeat.

It wasn’t a good day for Indonesia, because Wynne Prakusya could have beaten Conchita Martinez, but didn’t. Wynne is already a top doubles player, and her singles is also coming on a storm. She really rattled Martinez by running everything down and teasing her with slow high balls, and the Spaniard was yelling to herself and smacking the ball against the back wall in frustration in the second set. Wynne was so confident she even hit a drop-shot from beyond the baseline. Cheeky, and she won the point.

In the third set she led 40-0 on Conchita’s serve in the opening game, and she held two more break points at 1-1. But she didn’t take them, and instead it was Conchita who got the break to lead 3-1. Wynne had treatment to her racquet hand at 4-1, and went on to lose 6-3 3-6 6-1.

In other matches, Saori Obata of Japan upset seventh seed Emmanuelle Gagliari, who was probably still feeling the effects of a late-night first round match that she won 7-5 in the third. Obata won 6-2 7-5, and in the remaining singles match Svetlana Kuznetsova beat Alicia Molik 6-2 6-4.

Earlier in the day, about 60 kids from local schools and the Home of Hope Orphanage enjoyed a tennis clinic with Angelique Widjaja, Patricia Tarabini and the Serra-Zanetti sisters, Adriana and Antonella.
