The loss to Dokic in Paris R2 was not a bad loss at all. I have seen the whole match and it was a great match. Dokic can play very good or very weak - exactly like Nadia there is no consistency. And it was one of those rare days when Dokic plays excellent tennis. Jelena`s serve was amazing!:eek:

Nadia 21 winners, 21 UEs
Jelena 29 winners, 20 UEs

Nadia and Jelena have so strong groundstrokes.:drool::hearts:

Good Nadia had a week rest before Doha.

Well too bad one of her rare good days had to be against Nadia :(

Yeah,it's good that she had a rest week before Doha

Nadia faces Vinci in the first round and if she gets past the italian Wozniacki and her bye are already waiting there :p

I would like her to get to play Wozniacki.When they played that New Haven final last season I thought Nadia had the game to beat her,but her head deserted her as it often does :tape: I would like to think she has learned something from that match.

I will only look at her R1 opponent. Vinci is nothing special at all. If Nadia plays well, she will beat her. If she plays bad, she will lose in Doha R1. Everything depends on Nadia.

C`mon, Nadia! Consistency, please!:kiss:

It was really close in the doubles Final ... sadly they lost 5:7 7:6 8:10 against Peschke/Srebotnik ... but a final in doubles is good, I hope Nadias single results will soon improve, but the draw was very unlucky that soon against a well playing Wozniacki.

Time to travel to North America now ... next one is Indian Wells :)
2010 Nadia was there in the 4th Round and then lost to Wozniacki, so let's hope that the draw is better than Doha for Nadia!

Too many UEs from Nadia.:sad:

But some great points by Nadia from start of set 2 until 2-1. And the point to make it 1-1 in set 1 was amazing!:drool:

Nadia`s biggest problem is her weak movement. And lazy footwork.:sobbing:

Facing world #1 Caro in R2 was a very bad draw. Let`s hope for better luck in Indian Wells!;)

Nadia into IW R3! :yeah:

Followed the match on livescore. Nearly had a heart attack. :help::lol:

2nd set from 3-1 to 3-3 and Nadia wasted match points at 5-4 and 6-5.
Nadia should have closed it out earlier. But still a win in straight sets.

Now beat McHale, please. Revenge! ;)

McHale is a solid player. Nadia improved in sets 2 and 3, still far away from her best.
The crowd cheered loud for McHale, especially a group of fans made lots of noise.
Nadia seemed nervous in 1st set, lacked confidence. Wasted her chances, had 0-40 and then McHale won the next 5 points. Lousy movement. Break points won in 1st set: Nadia 0 of 4, McHale 2 of 2.
Thank God Nadia did not give up, she was patient, waiting for her chance to break McHale`s serve and finished the 2nd set with a good serve out wide from the deuce court. Serve was better than in set 1.
After 2nd set Nadia`s coach came on court and told her to stay low, especially on the return. This seemed to help Nadia. Serve and return were good in this set. She was more confident and moved better. Nadia finished the match with a backhand winner down the line. :drool:

Miami

R2: Nadia vs Lisicki

Viel Glück, Nadia!;)


Mattek-Sands cruised through the first set then toughed out a 47-minute second set to beat Sofia Arvidsson, 61 64. "I talked to Nadia a little bit. She played Sofia in Indian Wells and the only thing she said was they had these 20-ball rallies all day long," Mattek-Sands said. "I thought, 'You know what? I'm going to be aggressive. I'm going to take the ball on the rise.' It worked. That's my game, I take risks off returns. Second serve return I was way inside the court."
