Vanessa, you opened the Sydney thread. :D

I'm excited for the doubles. She always seem to have more fun playing doubles than singles. I'm with Norbi Team Competition Line FTW!

The first and probably last time :lol: I'll end up thinking i bring the bad luck or something :p

Dinara could be a doubles player all year long i would be quite happy ! I hope we'll have a livestream too i want to record the awesomeness of this match ( it won't be as good as Beijing with Sveta and their Peace sign trademark though ) .

Folks,I can't ask this in the Ana forum cuz so many people hate Alyssa due to Ana's embarrassing loss to her at Brisbane last year....Kleybanova is playing Kuzy right now and,I was just curious to see if anyone could comment:Has she trimmed down at all in the offseason,or is she still as chunky as ever??She'd be QUITE cute with a lean diet,I think...and,more importantly,it'd help a ton with her mobility

Justine backed out of Sydney at the last minute;she was slated to meet #1 Serena in the 2nd Round;)...and the gal who sent 'JuJu' into retirement,our :hearts:Dina:hearts:,is waiting in the bottom half:p

Hi Bruce :wavey: it appears that Kleybanova has trimmed down, she did that all hair wring out sweat thing :help:

In other news Dinara just said that she can't live without her credit card and also wants to see a koala when she's in Oz :hearts:

As for Dinara,koalas are cute and we can understand her affection,but she OUGHT to play one of the MEXICAN tourneys so that she can get herself a Latino Muzzle Kiss

Yes :lol: I was jorjamae but now Ziggy Starduck, I'm being serious Bruce, she's still a larger girl and full in the face but definitely trimmed down a bit :angel: ooooh la la a Latino Muzzle Kiss :lol:

I'm reminded of how Dina was perceived as sort of large and clumsy a couple years ago.......and then she decided that she really,REALLY liked guys so now we only get fleeting,momentary glimpses of the departed Tomboy Dinara.I'm gonna hold to my story that JMDP gave her the 'I love you' necklace...at least until I hear Dina testify to the contrary:p

A very big positive that she played a full match and won.
This has been a huge problem for Vera.
Now if she's healthy and can play everyday, the race for #1 will be back, and I miss having Dinara at #1. That was a lot of fun.

vanúss
Jan 12th, 2010, 03:03 AM
She'll face in the 1/4 either Dementieva or Hantuchova ! Could we have a rematch of the Sydney 09 Final ? :p

At least she won a match :lol:

This match was damned even before it started . But i :lol:ed at her trying soooo hard to suspend the match , it was fair since one week not even before the AO it would be stupid to be injured though :p

And that chair umpire interrupting Dinara and Z it was hilarious to see .

PS : i'm never ever again opening a thread :)

OK she lost.. but overall it doesn't seem like such a horrible start to me. :shrug: She got a couple of tough matches under her belt, her back is holding up and she is getting used to the conditions. Let's go to Melbourne! :)

Adjust your expectations down and it won't be so scary. :lol:
