That's a shitty draw. :tape: but yeah against Davenport might be a great practise for Tati. [well, provided if she's able to reach QF :tape:]

She plays double again this week. Surprisingly with Daniilidou.

#1 Lisa Raymond/Rennae Stubbs vs Bryanne Stewart/Samantha Stosur
Slivija Talaja/Roberta Vinci vs WC Beti Sekulovski/Cindy Watson
#4 Barbara Schett/Patty Schnyder vs Q
Emmanuelle Gagliardi/Jelena Kostanic vs Janet Lee/Shaui Peng

Flavia Pennetta/Francecsa Schiavone vs Eleni Daniilidou/Tatiana Golovin
Lindsay Davenport/Corina Morariu vs #3 Elena Dementieva/Ai Sugiyama
Liezel Huber/Lisa McShea vs Daniela Hantuchova/Martina Navratilova
Caroline Dhenin/Mashona Washington vs #2 Conchita Martinez/Virginia Ruano Pascual

It's quite a good draw, Sugiyama has not been playing well(nice bonus points), Stosur is not exactly consistent, and who knows where Davenport stands health wise.

In doubles, Daniilidou really isn't the best possible partner, but hopefully they win a match

Great Win, but enough 3 setters now. I don't even know if she recovered from last week. It seems like she gets no rest. Great win over a good fighter:)

great win for Tati :drool::D:D:D but bad news... aparently Tatiana got injured during the match :mad: and had to withdraw from doubles: Pennetta/Schiavone (ITA/ITA) d. Daniilidou/Golovin (GRE/FRA) w/o (Golovin: left abdominal strain)

hope it's not too serious... :confused::sad:

from broncosven' tuesday report:
Golovin vs Sugiyama
Only saw a small bit in the first set when Golovin was going smoothly along her merry way. Great baseline strokes and a good running game. Although Ai wasnt playing bad by any means Golovin was playing really well

from Drew's report


She played great in the first set ;) In the second Tati :eek: broke a raquet, when down 2-5 and she just played a horrible inconsistent second set :sad: Luckily in the third she was consistent, and really dominated Ai :p She was very excited and happy after the win :D

Great win aginst Ai, superb start to the year. Hopefully the injury isn't too bad, Stosur won't give up without a fight. Good luck Tati :)

Yet another 3 setter. Please let her get a few easy matches in Australia. God.
I think it hurts more since it was a 3 setter. She did well to win that 2nd set though

Tati should have been at Hobart or Canberra...I hope the rest of her schedule includes a mix of low tier events and the big ones...

Tati :sad: A little disappointing. She always tanks whenever she meets upcoming player [Vaidisova, Ivanovic and now Stosur] :banghead:

Good thing is she will get plenty of rest for AO. Need those since she's been playing lots of three set matches.

Yeah too bad that she lost, but she can certainly do with a bit of rest before Melbourne.

Elle est legerement blessee, enfin disons qu'elle a mal je sais plus où, donc valait mieux qu'elle perde et qu'elle se remette pour melbourne.

If you look at the pics from the match, Tati has a patch on her stomach. She was apparently trying to end points quickly. Hopefully every thing will be okay for the Open

Yeah Stosur has had more than her fair shar of luck this week, first a very tired, more or less injured Tati and now two Walkovers. :(
