Way better than Gold Coast. Zhenya & Anna def. good players. Good win for Masha K. Nina did it the hard way wasn't expected to win she'll learn from it and she'll make progress.

all these 2nd echelon girls: Linetskaya, Chackvetatdze and Kirilenko should have been playing lower tier tournaments this week IMO.

I think, Lena D. got a very good draw. The only question: would she want to play the whole tournament (i.e. going all the way to the final) if GS starts next week...

Lena got a good draw :)

Davenport got an awful one :lol:
lena should at least make it to SF, though i hope she just looks as this to a run up to AO, and doesnt expel too much energy :angel:

I think, Lena D. got a very good draw. The only question: would she want to play the whole tournament (i.e. going all the way to the final) if GS starts next week...If Lena loses to Davenport, she'll have plenty of time to rest. If Lena makes the final, then she needs a Wednesday start in Melbourne.
One match at a time.

all these 2nd echelon girls: Linetskaya, Chackvetatdze and Kirilenko should have been playing lower tier tournaments this week IMO.If they played Hobart, they would draw Nicole or Dinara, or someone like that.
These girls need to improve their game.
Otherwise they belong in 50k's.

Not a good day for Russia in singles, but the doubles teams are still in it with very good first round wins

Epigone
Jan 11th, 2005, 11:47 AM
I'm hoping that Nadia can now make the SF, since Nastya is out of her quarter of the draw

A Bepa vs Nadia SF match would be very entertaining :D

Daniel

Elena pulled out coz of heat stress (whatever that means?? :p)

Stosur in the final, hope Alicia wins ;)
