Jan 13th, 2002, 06:17 PM
This are the people Marti will probably be beating on her way to winning OZ.


any insights on them? (especially the ones in the earlier rounds)

Jan 13th, 2002, 06:35 PM
as usual in AO, Martina's real challengers only appear in the second week...

Jan 13th, 2002, 06:36 PM
Martina plays a night match against Virginie...oh goodie!

Jan 13th, 2002, 06:46 PM
Oz time is same as singapore time right?

get to watch it at 7pm when I get home :D

Jan 13th, 2002, 06:50 PM
Nope...Melbourne is 3 hours ahead of Sg!!!

Don't tell me you have SuperSports or StarSports or cable or something...

Jan 13th, 2002, 06:52 PM
which of course means a 7pm start in Melbourne is 4pm in Sg...

She should get through easily enough. Up until maybe the Quarters.
But its not gonna be Serena anymore.

Jan 14th, 2002, 07:34 AM
Anyone know who's taking Serena's slot in the draw?

Jan 14th, 2002, 07:37 AM
I guess Amanda or Barbara will be a good fourth round test for Martina - test out her serve and some strategy she hasn't used often - coming to the net!

Jan 14th, 2002, 07:39 AM
Martina's opponent could turn out to be Conchita or an unseeded player...

Hopefully she conserve energy in the early round for that potential semi final date with Venus...

Jan 14th, 2002, 07:50 AM
I read on an AO thread that Lina Krasnoroutskaya will take Serena's slot in the draw as the 33th seed...hmmm

Jan 14th, 2002, 01:22 PM
Except Serena William who should going to be her big opponent in QF ... I believe could repeat to beat Venus in SM !

Jan 14th, 2002, 04:38 PM
I think it's more likely to be Capriati than Clijsters in the final.

Jan 14th, 2002, 07:18 PM
I want Jen in the final so Martina can have revenge...

nice avatar sk!!! ;) :cool: ...:sad:

I hope that Marti will only have late mathces!!! Aussie is 10hrs ahead of CET!!!! :mad: If she plays in the evening, then I'll be able to watch her! :bounce: Just like today! ;) She's looking good! :)

Jan 14th, 2002, 09:53 PM
Same here Marri!
If she plays night then I know when its broadcasted here, but if she plays in the morning or afternoon it can be broadcasted at any time, coz its here then the middle of the night!

okie...back to Martina...

MARTI-PARTY!!! Who are you more worried about playing Martina? Monica or Venus?

Jan 18th, 2002, 09:30 PM
right now it seems like monica

but OZ 2002 belongs to marti, she's got nothing to fear
