:rolleyes:
She's going to fall out of the top 30 very soon if she continues to get such terrible draws :rolleyes:
But if she can win R1 then she could do some damage :p

watching this match now with Wickmayer 63 *43.

Nina playing absolutly amazing tennis, aggressive and clinical in her ballstriking. Moving so well, and most importantly attacking at the right times and reining in her play when needed perfectly.

She'll go far in this tournament and in Melbourne playing like this....

As the commentator keeps saying some of the shots Nina is making 'Safina can hardly believe it'

Yanina wins 63 67(2) 61 :woohoo:

As said before, it was a nice match. 2nd set she should of won, but it slipped away a bit. Looks good.

Excellent start for the "whoopieee-girl"...just read on my ceefax see "lost with REGRETS"
quote "i like Dinara very much and it's with regret i had to beat her. After all she endured
with her injury she deserves a place between the Top-10"...From Yanina with Love...it's true
Yanina always was "around" the Russian players!!!

Honestly, I don't know how Peng didn't win in 2 sets, she was serving for the match in 2nd at 5-4. However, Yanina kept fighting and is now one step away from defending the title:worship:

Jan 15th, 2011, 03:03 PM
She is having really bad luck with her draws this year :mad:,Safina,Stosur,Groth..these players are not the ones you usually play against in the very first round :ras:

And what is worse,the match is scheduled at 9.00 AM on Monday,while I have to be in class :fiery:

Good luck Nina :kiss: :cheer:

^^ This considered I'm not that hopeful for the win anymore:(:sad:

Though, considering that the season is just in the beginning it's not the end of the world to lose in 1st round and get healthy.

Dorien.

Well we will see. Jarka will be probably extremely nervous too. She knows what whole Australia is excepting from her and she never one a match at AO before.

Sweet win :cheer:.Serve wasnīt working at all last year fall,but today looked good :)

So happy with this win,she hasnīt been lucky so far with her first matches in Aussieland.A win against an inform Groth,who of course had the crowd behind her,must have done wonders for her confidence :cheer:

Sevastova next,may be tricky.She is a solid all-round player and,I believe,she lacks power.Nina might have a hard time but she should get through.

Nina faced Sevastova once,was on grass,Birmingham ī09,2r,64 63.Letīs do it again ;)

post match interview by Sabine

http://www.sporza.be/cm/sporza/tennis/Australian_Open/110119_AO_R2_Wickmayer_Sevastova# (in dutch)

"I didn't have anymore energy today, slept only for three hours last night, my voice is almost gone,...the cold has become much worse then monday, logical because I gave alot of energy on monday. If you are not healthy than you also don't recover well,... disappointed cause I started the season well, I was full of confidence to start the AO, there's nothing much you can do about being ill, I tried to give it all, but just could not..."

Poor thing:awww::hug:

Justine never should have made a come-back. She had a terrific career, she won almost everything and her name was carved with the greatest. All she does now is breaking down that image of the JUJU i used to admire as a GODDESS!!! I dunno what is goin' on in her head to continue but it will only make her more and more ridicoulous. SAD STORY OF A GREAT CHAMPION...

Well like i told u, it happened. A bit surprised she didn't wait until monday though. Those "medical interventions"(i won't use THAT WORD everybody thinks off) finally did it along with her inner demons. NO PITY HERE, ONCE AGAIN...JUJU SHOULD HAVE NEVER COME BACK!!!!
