You're probably right about Maria just posting when Amanda is playing ... she sure makes up for momentary abscences(sp?) when she does post ... :)

Hopefully it will be super-hot (temperature wise at both!!! so Amanda has a fitness advantage) but at the moment it's unseasonably cold here... so let's hope it warms up at bit.

So what does our hero do during her down time - the off weeks during the season? Keep with the fitness regime, sure. But I wonder what else. Anyone around here talk to Amanda and can share some (non-confidential) details?

Robbie.

Her clay court schedule is very weird :confused:

She plays Charleston, then Amelia Island and then has not committed to any tourneys until Rome (which she has not played since 1999). It seems an odd preparation for RG. Usually she plays at least 3 clay court tourneys in Europe before the French Open.

Zamboni
Apr 4th, 2003, 04:34 PM
That's a weird schedule indeed! And it means she won't play much so there won't be much news :(

Amanda into the 3rd round with a win over Granville

Got a little bit tight in set #2, but closed it out in the tiebreak.

Next up is either Myskina or Pierce, both will be a big test. They still have completed their match due to a rain delay so I am glad that amanda got into the locker room before the rain :D

Keep going Amanda! :bounce:

I was hoping for Myskina to win because Amanda has such an awful record against Mary :sad:

it is kind of ironic, Amanda loses her first three set match of the year to the most unfit player :rolleyes:

Go Amanda in Amelia Island!

Good luck Amanda! Tough draws are made to be beaten!!!

Robbie.
Apr 15th, 2003, 08:01 AM
Well it's a very tough first round against the rising star Zvonoreva, but if *fingers crossed* Amanda can get through that match I think this draw is about as good as you can expect it to be at this sort of tourney. I mean she avoided henin, seles, davenport and capriati, and got probably the most vulnerable top seed in the draw, Dani. definitely amanda will have to work for each match, but it could be worse!

Go Amanda! :bounce:

Disappointing, yes! But on the positive side Amanda is only losing to these good players, so its not like she is losing to qualifiers or anything :D

the strangest thing is that we are not going to see her again until rome :eek: :sad: The good thing is that she doesn't have any points to defend until Wimby :D So while everyone else starts to lose points hers will stay the same (and hopefully be added to) :D

Zamboni

But today I was going through a 1993 Annual Report and did you know that Amanda defeated Natalie Tauziat 6-0, 6-0 in the second round of the US Open in 1993!!! Only the second time that a seed was double bagelled at the US Open ... the other time was Martina Navratilova ... :wavey: :wavey: :wavey:

I think we have all been a bit lazy and haven't come in here as much as we should have :p

I am a little frustrated because Amanda has no points to defend but still she is not making any ground because she is not playing :rolleyes: But hopefully she can peak at RG and win a few matches there for once. She hasn't reach the fourth round of a major other than the Aus Open since 1998 :eek: Its time to change that :kiss:

Like you, I can't wait until she is playing - and winning- again!

I think she is #17 right now, but one withdrawal would help her chances a little bit! Of course she could always beat many of the players ranked 9-16 anyways.....

The loss is obviously disappointing, but hardly unexpected, considering the very decent quality and standing of her opponent as well as their head to head records. In actual fact, I am quite pleased that Amanda somehow managed to grab a set, something which she failed to accomplish in her two previous meetings against Srebotnik. Being fans of Amanda, we should not be feeling dejected, and should rather look at the result as 'a blessing in disguise', a quote I recall she made some time ago.

The FO might be over for Amanda, but we still can all look forward to seeing her at Wimby, if not earlier at Eastbourne, right? GO AMANDA, you are the best!!!!!!!!!!!

Does anyone know if Amanda has committed to playing Fed Cup? SA play the Czechs in Durban in July, and I want to go ONLY if Amanda is playing. I stay near Cape Town (it you can all 150 km "near") and will need to fly to Durban for the tie + pay for hotel accomodation. It will cost a pretty penny - so I just want to be sure that Amanda is playng. Thanx guys and girls!!

Come on Amanda you van beat Dally!!!!

xcrtbckhnd
Jun 21st, 2003, 10:28 PM
Amanda has never played Dally, but I think she will win this match fairly routinely in straight sets. Against Seda, Amanda has played her once and won 6-2 6-4 on hard courts, 2001 Bahia Rnd 16. She has played Schiavone twice and lost twice:

2001 Roland Garros Clay (O) 32 Francesca SCHIAVONE 5-7 4-6
2002 Eastbourne Grass (O) 32 Francesca SCHIAVONE 6-4 3-6 4-6

Hopefully she will get some revenge this year!!!

Agsainst Janet Lee:
1994 Oklahoma Hard (I) 32 Amanda COETZER 6-3 6-4
1999 Australian Open Hard (O) 32 Amanda COETZER 6-3 7-5
2000 Stanford Hard (O) 32 Amanda COETZER 6-2 6-3

Amanda COETZER (RSA) leads 3 : 0


Against Asagoe:

2001 Tokyo Carpet (I) 16 Shinobu ASAGOE 4-6 7-5 6-7(5)

Shinobu ASAGOE (JPN) leads 1 : 0


Against Bartoli: Never played

Against Hantuchova:

2001 Oklahoma City Carpet (I) 16 Daniela HANTUCHOVA 6-7(0) 6-3 0-6
2002 Canadian Open Hard (O) 16 Daniela HANTUCHOVA 1-6 3-6
2003 Indian Wells Hard (O) 16 Amanda COETZER 6-4 6-4

Not an easy road to progress through based on past history, but Amanda can do it!! I believe!!!

It wasn't fair that they put someone who relies on energy on that late at night. Espicially against such a good player. I know I sound like a cry baby, but if they had put the two girls on the next day, I'm sure it would have gone at least three sets.

Jul 31st, 2003, 05:35 PM
A bit of a demoralizing loss. C'mon Amanda, you're still the best!!

Robbie.
Aug 1st, 2003, 08:17 AM
A bit of a predictable loss really :sad: It seems that Amanda just goes AWOL in the second half of the year :sad: Amanda was 16-5 in her first six tournies and since then she has been 6-8 :( Its so much like last year :rolleyes:

Hopefully she can get a better draw next week and notch a couple of wins. . She has so many points to defend at the US Open and thwn Moscow.

Ironically Amanda goes up to #14 in the rankigs next week which is her highest rank since 2001 :eek: I guess she deserves it. When you look at those who are ranked around her Amanda has beaten over the past 52 weeks Hantuchova (#9), Myskina (#10), Sugiyama (11), Dokic (12), Maleeva (13), Dementieva (16), Zvonareva (17), Farina Elia (20), Dechy (23) and Petrova (24). So if she can beat all those players, I guess being #14 makes some sense :)

COME ON AMANDA! YOU CAN COME BACK FROM THIS!!!

Amanda was 15 this week thats why she couldn't beat herself :p

But the only player in the top 9-20 who Amanda has played in the past 52 weeks but not beaten is Conchita who was #14, #13 next week.
