She seems really sweet and focused and so determined. She said that She exchanges birthday gifts with whoever her birthday is the same day on? Don't know which player they were refering too. I think it was Justine cause Mary Carillo also stated that Kim was in the locker-room(CONFRONTIN') lol.. everyone with a HUGE birthday card and having everyone signing it for Juju.

Anyway.. back to Nadia. She stated that Kim and her grew up together but yet KIm had the most success first. She seems really focused infact she said she was focused and that she knows it will be a tough match against Kim but she is going to play her game. This kid is determined in my opinion to win RG.

by the way her English is very good and she appears so different without her hat on.

ESPN is hailing this as the match of the tournament.

Uh, dum dums, its KIM she shares her birthday with. Kim is exactly one year younger. Funny how all the players Kim "grew up with" are older than her.

her dad did the hammer throwing and her mom was part of a relay team. I think she seems really nice I remmeber seeing her play last year and she was just smiling the whole way through and seemed so friendly. she does seem so focused . I think her match with Kim could be decided at the net , whoevers brave enough to come in more

Nadya was very lovely, very sweet. It will be hard to hate her tomorrow. I wish she was playing Serena instead of Kim tomorrow, I'd love for both of them to be in the final for their birthday :)

Nadya will turn 21 and Kim will turn 20.

I hope she wins! She's a great athlete and has real fighting qualities. The third sets against Capriati and Zvonereva were very gutsy!

Whatever happens here, she's got a brilliant future ahead of her!

Go Nadia!! :bounce:

So is mine Rtael. Mine is June 26th. :D

Nadia is pretty cute, It's to bad she has to play one of my favs. If Nadia beats Kim, I won't be too shocked.
