Another bad draw for Monica :rolleyes:
Jan 10th, 2003, 12:50 AM
Iva vs. Kim 3rd Round pffffffff
Jan 10th, 2003, 12:52 AM
Elena B is cursed :mad:
3 tournament draws and every one she plays a Russian :mad: :mad: :(
just :mad: pfffffffffffffff
Sveta vs Venus too yikes :mad:
Anna's got an interesting 1st rd....... then Juju :o
Elena D's draw ...... all depends who it is as long as its not Lina :(
Nastya..... better get revenge over MGM, and no pffffffffff toilet breaks for her after 15 mins :mad:
Jan 10th, 2003, 12:54 AM
Poor Eggy. Sorry for you. :o
Go Anca ! But Schiavone will be very tough, I don't think her game suits Anca well. :(
Jan 10th, 2003, 12:55 AM
Monica's draw :rolleyes:
Babsi vs. Amanda :rolleyes:
Asa vs. Magui :rolleyes: Asa leads Head to Head 2-0 so hopefully that helps for not losing in 2 sets ;)
Vamos Monica, Amanda, Asa. (Sorry Babsi) make me proud as always ;)!
Jan 10th, 2003, 12:55 AM
Whew! At least Monica is not in Vee's quarter. :D :D
I can't wait to see a Monica vs. Rena quarterfinal!
I hope all my girls can do well. :)
But Go Vee!
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:23 AM
GO MAUREEN! GO RITA! GO BOVINA! GO MONICA! GO IVA! GO MARIE! GO KOURNIKOVA! GO ALICIA! GO BALTACHA! GO ANABEL!
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:24 AM
Is that right a possible 4rd match of Henin/Davenport? :eek:
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:27 AM
I like the draw, my faves don't play a top seed in 1st rd. ;)
Tina vs Tatiana P :) Tina have a good chance to win, even she can also lose, next Iva's in bad form, Tina can win ;)
Magui vs Åsa :) Should be a good 3 sets match, with a unknown winner...
Maja M. was lucky got a WC player first
Good luck Tina, Maja, Magüi!!
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:34 AM
5th Slam in a row with Monica drawing a Williams for the QF.......
I would have prefered it be Venus again!
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:37 AM
Bally vs. Stevenson! Go Bally!
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:38 AM
Coetzer-Schett! :sad: I want both to win!
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:47 AM
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:47 AM
Well, Monica is probably tired of playing Venus in the quarters, and I for one am sick of seeing it.
Bring on Serena!
Jan 10th, 2003, 01:54 AM
If only if I could switch Myskina's name with Monica's ...oh well.
I'm still nervous for Venus-
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:17 AM
Tough draw for Maggie :rolleyes:
Anyway, Good luck :D
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:20 AM
Nice draw for Paola and Clarisa:wavey:
Good luck also Venus:wavey: :bounce: :wavey:
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:21 AM
Stevenson and Capriati:(:(:(:(
Chanda and Elena D again!:(:(
But at least Jennifer is not in the same half as Serena again!:)
Go Jenn, defend your title! Let the Sydney 2R fairytale comes true again! (Jenn won a Grand Slam after losing in the 2R of the tune-up touneys right before a Slam!;))
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:27 AM
- Good draw for Hantuchova she could go far
- poor Dementieva, she will face Rubin for the 3rd time in a row this year!!!
- Molik has a tough draw: Davey in 2rd!!!
- 2 of my faves Bovina and Zvonareva in 1st round:(
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:29 AM
one more thing: Danilidou against Serena in round of 16 could be verry interresting...
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:33 AM
You all think Kuznetsova could upset Venus??
Dementieva looks to have a nice draw
COEZTER v.s. SCHETT :(:( go babsi
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:39 AM
also good luck EVA :) she have a tough draw :sad: maybe she can beat maggie again!
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:41 AM
tough draw for Monica again :rolleyes:
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:55 AM
easy draw for Venus, she must reach the SF's without many troubles.
interesting draw for Justine Henin. Henin Vs Kournikova? i wanna see that one
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:59 AM
Easy draw for Venus, but her form has sucked, which means it's a good draw for Dani and Patty as well. Maybe Venus won't be there.
Jenn got Alex, but again maybe she won't be there when the time comes.
Jan 10th, 2003, 03:05 AM
She couldn't draw Myskina or Hantuchova 4th rd! DRAT! Good Luck Maggie! :):)
BTW...I think Svetlana vs Venus is a fun 1st rd match!
Jan 10th, 2003, 03:12 AM
I am sooo happy with Chanda's draw, she should make the quarters no problem!
Jan 10th, 2003, 03:32 AM
I like Jenn's draw..I think one of the biggest problems is Alex, but since it's a Slam, Jennifer will a lot more effort. So I think she'll be fine!
Good luck Jennifer!! :bounce:
Jan 10th, 2003, 03:32 AM
Sveta vs. Venus :fiery:
Vera vs. Elena B :fiery:
Damn i hate these draws!! :fiery::fiery:
Jan 10th, 2003, 04:13 AM
I was watching the draw being made, and they said seeds 25-32 would play seeds 1-8(in 3rd round). And who out of those 8 seeds gets Serena.......Tammy:rolleyes:.
Atleast she has an ok draw to get to the 3rd round.
Jan 10th, 2003, 04:25 AM
Monica's draw :rolleyes: :fiery:
Anna's draw :o
Jan 10th, 2003, 04:37 AM
I'm quite happy with Lindsay's draw!she can beat Henin and Capriati,i hoped she didnt get Serena and Kim and she didnt! ;)
GO LINDSAY! :D
Jan 10th, 2003, 04:44 AM
Iva you cannot lose this frist round match on hardcourts :o yikes Kim in round 3....
Eleni has a tough match and some tough floaters (Amy, Iveta and of course Dechy)but Im looking for her to make the round of 16 here...go for it!
Alicia got a raw deal with her draw, I think she'll beat Iroda but hope she can give a good match to Lindsay (I smell a center court night match there)
The other Aussies fared OK. Evie will probably lose to Rittner, but it's a winnable match...Pratt can win a few rounds too. I dont expect Rachel to beat Garbin, but it couldve been worse...as for the 3 youngsters Stosur, Dellacqua and Szili, they've all drawn tough opposition and I dont expect wins, but I think they can all be competitive in their matches.
Jan 10th, 2003, 05:06 AM
good i hope venus' form is really bad, because this could be a good draw for patty then. i have to say i think i fear dani more than venus (which i know will probably fire you venus lovers up, by the way i am not a 'hater' as you like to refer to anyone who says anything about her, i just don't know how she will play). patty will probably lose in the first round tough to prakusya. she better not!
Jan 10th, 2003, 06:11 AM
possible Els vs Serena 2nd round
can she frustrate the shit our out serena again? :p
Jan 10th, 2003, 06:23 AM
els might beat her rb!!
Jan 10th, 2003, 06:31 AM
Though draw for Angie & Wynne. They are in the same quarter (Angie vs Sugiyama (21) and Wynne vs Schnyder (12)). Could they go for Indonesian mathes ? Little chance, but I hope they can beat seeded player at least one of them. Go girls!
Jan 10th, 2003, 06:45 AM

Don't overlook Venus' 1st round match with Kuznetsova. Saw her at the US open and she looked mighty good- loaded with talent. As for Serena, I just hope Callens gets revenge!!!
Eleni D. does has a tough match against Irvin. I just hope she doesn't choke cuz I would particularly enjoy a Serena-Eleni matchup. Good Luck LENA!!! DON't FORGET YOU HAVE POINTS TO DEFEND;)
Jan 10th, 2003, 07:15 AM
Good luck to Magüi and to all the Spaniards that play here!!. ¡¡VAMOS!!.
Jan 10th, 2003, 07:27 AM
Rubin v Dementieva again!!:rolleyes: I know they wouldn't meet until the 3rd round, but how many times have these 2 drawn each other??!! Actually I think Chanda has a good chance of reaching the quarters, she can beat Nastya!!
Angie v Ai could a tough one, would like both to win, but I'll cheer for Ai!:)
Also Good luck to:
Joon-Yeong Cho (v Dyrberg)
Iva Majoli (v Torrens Valero)
Shinobu Asagoe (v Ruano Pascual)
Stephanie Foretz (v Koulikovskaya)
Mashona Washington (v Pratt)
Dally Randriantefy (v Suarez)
:D GOOD LUCK EVERYONE!! :D
Jan 10th, 2003, 07:28 AM
Go Tammy :) Serena :) Venus :) Alex :) and Monica! :)
Jan 10th, 2003, 07:33 AM
Let's say it all together: Serena Slam!
Jan 10th, 2003, 07:43 AM
Serena's got an easy draw. There's more experience , and
depth on the bottom half. On the other hand- you just never
can tell what can happen. I just hope the quality is high- I'm
sick and tired of all the comments about women's matches being
Jan 10th, 2003, 07:44 AM
I hope you are going to do well, Tammy. I'll be there for you again this year. :hearts:
All the best Asians, Aussie and Monica Seles :bounce: :bounce:
Yes, I love "Tim Tam"
Jan 10th, 2003, 07:44 AM
For a complete rundown of both the men's and women's draws, go to my website, TennisHack Online (http://tennishack.freeservers.com) and click on "Australian Open Preview" :)
Jan 10th, 2003, 07:45 AM
I don't think anyone has an "easy" draw, except Kim Clijsters.
Venus vs. Dani/Patty QF...
Monica/Serena QF...I'm ready...they always play good matches.
Capriati has a killer draw...tough to 3 peat. Hoping for a Jen/Venus semi
Jan 10th, 2003, 09:13 AM
Good Luck to : TAMMY
Jan 10th, 2003, 09:23 AM
OMG, Angie vs Sugiyama and Wynne vs Patty !!!
What a bad draw for Indonesian
Jan 10th, 2003, 09:25 AM
Anna's draw :fiery:
Jan 10th, 2003, 09:38 AM
Hmmmm don't like the draw to much....
....like some others too
Sure enough there's a swiss duell in the first round grrrrrrrrr
MGM vs Manu I hate that!!!!! One good thing one swiss will be in second round for sure.
Then I'm looking forward to Juju vs Myrima hmmm now didn't Myriam beat her in Filderstat??
And Patty really should make it to the quarters where she'll face Daniela. But with Patty you never know.
Anyways Hooooopppppppp Schwiiiiiiizzzzzzz!!
Jan 10th, 2003, 10:36 AM
Good luck to Indonesian girls :
Prakusya vs Schnyder :(
Widjaja vs Sugiyama :o
You can rock the world with a surprise win, girls!
Go Monica, Vee, and Rena, one of you must take the title home! :bounce:
Jan 10th, 2003, 11:34 AM
Not ecstatic about Monica's draw (Megan's not exactly a third-round cakewalk....), but if they both get that far, I have a feeling the Serena-Monica matchup actually works better for Monica than Vee-Monica (...not quite sure why, as Serena's deadly... and yet...;) )
Kim's got it pretty easy until the semis.
Jan 10th, 2003, 11:41 AM
Babsi vs. Amanda :rolleyes:
Patricia vs Mary :o
good luck to
Lubomira Kurhajkova :D
Clarisa Fernandez :bounce:
Vera Zvonareva and Elena Likhovtseva :D
Magui Serna and Asa Svensson :bounce:
Dally Randriantefy :hearts:
Angie Widjaja and Wynne Prakusya :D
Libuse Prusova :D
Tough draw for most of my faves. Capriati and Kim Clijsters have the easiest draws out of the seeds. I'm pissed off about Henin vs Casanova, Venus vs Sveta, and Babsi Schett vs Coetzer. Can there be any worse draws for them
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:43 PM
Come on Vee...let's take this title home :bounce: :bounce:
Also good luck to: Serena Slam :bounce:, Anna Kournikova :bounce:, Alex Stevenson, Justine Henin, Elena Bovina, Dinara Safina :bounce:...let's go go go!!!!
Jan 10th, 2003, 02:46 PM
Best of luck also to Eleni Daniilidou :bounce: :bounce:

Yeah, but how the heck do you keep up with them all??? If I was a fan of that many players, I know how I'd feel after a season of trying to follow them: :eek:
Jan 10th, 2003, 04:16 PM
lol, you have to be obsessed ;)
the ones with the smileys are my biggest faves though :)

omg what a nightmare for chanda!!!!! typical of course she had to be in same quarter of the draw as kim,the player of the moment:( after two 6-1 6-2 defeats recently by her I don't think she'll be confident of reaching the semi's :(
Jan 10th, 2003, 08:11 PM
Good luck Venus, take the Auz trophy home. Good luck Serena (till you meet Venus in the finals :angel:

Justine has the worst draw ever! Casanova, Kournikova, Safina, Davenport, Capriati, Venus & Serena. It's a nightmare! With Monica as a close scond: Bovina/Zvonareva in 4F & erena in QF. Good luck to all the ones who have a bad draw (especially the ones above).
But also good luck to Venus, Kim and Elena B.
Jan 10th, 2003, 11:51 PM
Grrrr, don't like Henins draw :mad: :mad: Kims draw is ok :)
Hope Els will meet Serena in 2nd round... :devil:
So Eva Dyrberg is really playing here!!! :eek:
