CONCHITA VA A GANAR....CLARAMENTE.........
Dec 1st, 2002, 02:46 AM
The line up has been the best it has ever been.
The likes of Tatiana, Anna, Mary should be top contenders for the Tournament Victory, as of Anna's great Preformance here the last few years, Tatianas ability here last year was surprising, but another clean effort form her should force her up maybe to the semifinal again, and we all know what Mary Pierce is like when her game is on top,
Ranking wise she seems average, but in Ability and after her Surgery seems for me to be the top contender for the title atleast The Finals is a must for Mary.
Plus any NewZealanders in the Draw, I hope to see atleast one of them have a good run for NewZealand.

Of course the diva, MARY PIERCE!! :bounce:

Why is the poll closed so soon?
I should vote for LENA
Dec 2nd, 2002, 02:28 AM
Im actually quite surprised by the outcome of the poll :confused: Conchita seems to be the one to win the tournament, but the people that have voted for her, have Latin flags, or have Conchita in their names, I geuss it's patriosm, I would love her to concede the fighting form of the exhibition match she just had with Anna Kournikova, Im going to the tournament, and I really think she has got a throw of a dice's chance of winning, I really think it's possible, Panova, Pierce, Smashnova, Martinez hopefully should all be in the SemiFinals.
Go Elena Likhotseva :bounce:
Dec 2nd, 2002, 07:28 AM
I hope Paola or Clarisa:angel:
Dec 2nd, 2002, 09:46 AM
Hopefully aswell, If Paola is playing doubles then I think shes effectivly won her first tournament of the year, Usually Auckland doesn't bost the best Doubles Draw, With the exception of Likhotseva, Husarova playing.
Richard said Clarissa also has a good chance of the tournament, and not a player to estimate :)

hmmmmm, conchita to win? i don't think so. i wanted to vote for either smashnova (still underrated, she's gonna have a few more surprises up her sleeve this year) or zvonareva.
Dec 2nd, 2002, 11:25 AM
Well she bet Anna in a exhibition, Now I don't know how much effort players put into an exhibition.
Rebound Ace is one of Conchitas Favourite Surfaces. I also think people don't realise that most of what is been said on the Radio (NZ) Is just General hype for her as she is a Wimbledon Champion, people often forget hype and being a contender is a very different thing, I still however think she can put a better effort than what she did last year.

Anna :D :D

Conchita seems to be in good form I think that is why people are tipping her to take the title, she made a final and a semi in her last few events, played really well in the fed cup final and all those events not on her favorite surface. She loves rebound ace and u only have to look at her results over the years at the Oz Open to see she can play on the stuff. She has certainly slimmed down since this time last year, and is currently riding a good wave of form. So all in all i do pick teh GREAT CONCHI!!
Dec 4th, 2002, 08:51 AM
I think people are examining her presence of last years result, loosing in the first round :) :eek:
Dec 4th, 2002, 12:39 PM
she didn't have something last year that she does now - confidence - conchita to beat an inexperienced vera z in the final!
mary a 1st round loser...
Dec 5th, 2002, 07:05 AM
hehe poor Mary :eek:
I hope you don't Jynx her ;)
Dec 6th, 2002, 11:51 AM

Conchita to beat Vera Zvonareva in 3 sets in the final. Pierce to get knocked out 1st round (or 2nd round if she has a bye in the 1st).
Dec 22nd, 2002, 08:54 PM
Baltacha to defeat Smashnova in the final 7-5, 5-7, 6-2!
Dec 23rd, 2002, 12:16 PM
Glad to see everyone thinking it will be Conchita :D
Dec 23rd, 2002, 02:37 PM
I think Baltacha will make some progress, maybe to the last 16, but since this will be the first tournament back for her, the emphasis has got to be on getting her fitness back in time for the Aussie open.
