We'll make a cheering thead for JuJu in Zürich ... Let's ope that the early loss in Filderstadt is already digested ;). But, I'm sure she'll have a revival: she has no points to defend, so she will have no pressure and she'll do fine!!!
First I'll post the draw:
Jennifer Capriati vs. bye
[ESP] Concita Martinez vs. Myriam Casanova [SUI/WC]
[QLF] qualifier vs. Ai Sugiyama [JAP]
[CRO] Iva Majoli vs. Jelena Dokic [YUG/5]
[SVK/7] Daniela Hantuchova vs. qualifier [QLF]
[QLF] qualifier vs. Elena Dementieva [RUS]
[SUI] Patty Schnyder vs. qualifier [QLF]
bye vs. Amelie Mauresmo [FRA/3]
[B][U]Justine Henin vs. bye
[ISR] Anna Smashnova vs. Chanda Rubin [USA]
Magdalena Maleeva vs. Marie-Gaïaneé Mikaellian [SUI]
[USA] Lisa Raymond vs. Anastasia Myskina [RUS/8]
[BEL/6] Kim Clijsters vs. Daja Bedanova [CZE]
[RSA] Amanda Coetzer vs. Silvia Farina Elia [RUS]
[RUS] Tatiana Panova vs. Anne Kremer [LUX]
bye vs. [B]Lindsay Davenport [USA/2]
A tough draw for Justine: Smashnova/Rubin -> Maleeva/Myskina -> Davenport/Clijsters -> Mauresmo/Capriati/Hantuchova/Dokic. But JuJu has proven that when she has a hard draw, she does fine.
This could become the tournament of vengeance. Next is Myskina (from who she lost in Pilot Pen) or Mikaelian (a quite unknown Swiss). It's 6-0 4-6 for Myskina in sets right now.

Good luck Justine against Mikaelian. Don't let her overpower you, just play agressive and smart and you will win, I hope.
GO JUSTINE, improve you're confidence and you're ranking with a good tournemant.

Allez Justine! Je hebt de eerste set te pakken (7-5) en je hebt een break voorsprong in de tweede (3-1). Je serve houden en dan pas opkijken tegen de vriendelijke reus!!!
Translation: I was so excited to finally find the scores (I can't get onto the official Swisscom site) that I wrote my message in Dutch. Sorry. Well, to summarise: JuJu won the first set 7-5 and is now up 4-1 in the second. Hold your serve and then look up against the friendly giant.

Good luck to Justine against Lindsay today!

She lost to Davenport: 7-6 (7-2) 7-6 (7-5).
Not a shamefull result. But she had a lot of chances in the second set (she was 2 breaks ahead once at 4-1) but the double faulting came up. At 5-5 she broke Davenport, but she was immediately broken back. In the tiebeak it was 6-1 then Justine came back to 6-5 (déjà vu Kim Clijsters) but she failed to get to 6-6.
Well, good match Lindsay. Idem ditto Justine. Henin raises to #6 in the rankings from monday, so that is good. In Linz she'll probably be able to go to #5 or even #4 but I'll stop with that becaus when hybris come up, the Greek goddess Nemesis punishes those who think they are always fortunated by the goddess Tyche (luck).
:bounce: :bounce: Better luck in the next tournament, JuJu :bounce: :bounce:

Hope she wins Linz and can go to #4:bounce: She's suppose to meet Davenport in the semis, so it'll be revenge!;)
