Yeah, it's a very good draw ! ALLEZ TATI !!!

May 20th, 2005, 02:39 PM
can someone clear up who Tati will most likely face in the next few rounds. (hopfully she gets that far) good luck Tati!

May 20th, 2005, 02:42 PM
i found this at the Roland Garros website too:

"Back from Strasbourg, where she came a cropper in her first match, Tatiana Golovin has been working out with Brad Gilbert, who was animated in his encouragement of his protégé."

May 20th, 2005, 02:50 PM
let me see if i get this right. Tati could possibly face:

Wiengartner in round 2
Bovina in round 3
Petrova in round 4

someone correct me if im wrong. Good luck in round one first Tati! one match at a time.

May 20th, 2005, 03:32 PM
I think it is a good draw for Tati. She needs to play well though otherwise she will gone early. I think she will step up her game though.

May 20th, 2005, 05:01 PM

no need to go any further until she gets there. :angel: just focus on these matches one at a time tati.

May 20th, 2005, 05:24 PM
i guess this is payback for the rome draw. :)

on a hard court, i would predict a QF. but on red clay, i'm not sure. she has to at least get through two rounds.

i agree, take it a match at a time. good luck tati!

May 20th, 2005, 07:25 PM
Easy first couple of Rounds..Tati should win against Bovina and I know she makes Petrova uncomfortable.....Amelie in the quarters ....if they both make it to the quarters....a game I would love to watch....

Allez tati...

May 20th, 2005, 10:09 PM
Good draw for Tati, I have to fancy her chances. She would do well to take out Bovina and Petrova. GOOD LUCK!

May 21st, 2005, 02:07 AM
If she can get thru some early matches she has the game to upset the likes of Bovina and Petrova

May 21st, 2005, 06:13 PM
Tatiana praticed with Kim Clijsters


Former world number one Kim Clijsters confirmed on Saturday she will take part in the French Open, which starts on Monday. The Belgian star has been dogged by an injury to her right knee, but trained for an hour with home favourite Tatiana Golovin before telling reporters she was ready to compete.

May 22nd, 2005, 08:53 PM
I don't see Tatiana on the schedule for Monday so she plays Tuesday:)

May 22nd, 2005, 09:22 PM
Will she be wearing another new outfit?

May 22nd, 2005, 09:51 PM
Will she be wearing another new outfit?

That's what I've been wondering. I believe she said she was going to debut her new outfit at the French, not before. That's why I was confused why she wore that new dress 2 weeks before the French. Guess we just have to wait and see :confused:

May 22nd, 2005, 10:00 PM

I think she was supposed help design it aswell

May 22nd, 2005, 10:07 PM
I think her new outfit will be the one she used for the underwater pics :(

May 23rd, 2005, 02:33 AM
from the Roland Garros website:

Tatiana Golovin: "I'm more experienced now"
I've been training for three weeks on clay, which is a surface I'm not really used to. I haven't won many matches on the surface. The green clay in the U.S is more suited to my game as it's faster. I'm more experienced than last year. I'm a better player with more to my game. I'm very focussed on my first round match and I hope to put in a good performance here at last. This is a tournament that is close to the heart of every French player.

May 23rd, 2005, 02:36 AM
what is tati an american man that she can't win on red clay :lol:

May 24th, 2005, 03:33 PM
Good luck today Tati in your opening round match.

Also Tati starts doubles play with Myskina tomorrow. Don't like their chances b/c of Myskina's personal issues. Still that is a doubles team that I would love to watch.

May 24th, 2005, 04:00 PM
Yeah I agree:) GOod Luck Tati!!!!!!!!!!

Hope ESPN shows some of her match, but it's gonna be the same time that Andy's so I don't know if we will or not

May 24th, 2005, 06:04 PM
Great win 6-0, 6-2. Apparently she has both ankles taped, hopefully just for precaution. Had no clue when she got injured:confused:

May 24th, 2005, 06:08 PM
Tati annihilated Osterloh today.

I also heard them say both ankles are taped. Hope it is not too serious.

May 24th, 2005, 06:09 PM
congrats on 1st FO win! rest those ankles.

i think she got injured in practice. mary carillo briefly mentioned it on monday's wrapup show and poster C3PO confirmed it on a post in the WTA section of the menstennisforums.

May 24th, 2005, 06:14 PM
RDV au 2ème tour !

May 24th, 2005, 08:19 PM
Great job Tati!

Tati and Myskina play doubles tommorrow against Dulko/Vento Kabchi

May 24th, 2005, 11:11 PM
Well done Tati. Good luck in the doubles. Will she be defending the mixed title?

May 25th, 2005, 01:01 AM
good luck in doubles. I'm so glad tati won her first round match.

May 25th, 2005, 02:05 AM
does anyone have the whole story about her ankles??? in the pics they are so heavily taped that they look like socks. why is she playing doubles? im worried about Tati.

May 25th, 2005, 02:43 AM
does anyone have the whole story about her ankles??? in the pics they are so heavily taped that they look like socks. why is she playing doubles? im worried about Tati.

I was too, but I then I thought if it was a big conscern, she wouldn't be playing. I think the fact that she's playing doubles and that she totally dominated Osterloh( & was smiling at the end), means that she's okay. But I too, am curious about when this injury came about & what the jury already is. I also think it's odd that she has both ankles wrapped- how do u injure both :confused:

Tati and Myskina lost the doubles 6-3 0-6 2-6

May 25th, 2005, 11:18 PM
Honestly, they did well to get a set

May 25th, 2005, 11:39 PM
After they won the first set I relaxed and thought they would take the second easily. But it was some-what expected imo :sad:

May 26th, 2005, 03:28 AM
hopfully Tati was able to pratice a few things during doubles that she can use in her singles matches.

May 27th, 2005, 08:26 PM
Tati won her second round match 6-1 6-0. :woohoo:

She'll play Elena Bovina next tomorrow first match in Chatrier. Allez tAti.

May 27th, 2005, 08:32 PM
ESPN better not show Tati's match since I will be asleep. I can't wake up at 5 a.m. to watch tennis. I wish they placed the Loit vs. Gagliardi final set before Tati b/c then I'd wake up while Tati was still playing.

Anyway good luck against Bovina.

May 27th, 2005, 09:38 PM
Good luck Tati

May 27th, 2005, 10:16 PM
No clue if ESPN will show her match vs. Bovina. I hope they will, but Masha's playing at the same time. Hopefully she'll lose/win quickly so they show Tati:)

May 27th, 2005, 11:00 PM
I don't think ESPN will show anything live tommorrow. NBC fom 12 to 3, and then ESPN2 taped from 4 to 6.

May 28th, 2005, 04:05 AM
Yeah I just found that out. Now I can finally get some sleep b/c I don't have to wake up early to watch any of the action. I hope Tati's match is shown but I'm not getting my hopes up.

May 28th, 2005, 10:50 AM
Tati lost 3-6, 5-7 to Lena B efter wasting to set points in the second.
She fought pretty well, but failed to play with enough variety, leaving to much initiative to Bovina :sad:

May 28th, 2005, 10:50 AM
Tati lost 6-3, 7-5 to bovina. She had a 5-4 lead in the 2nd with chances to break for the set but couldn't convert and then got broken in the next game. :fiery:

Bad stats: 7 double faults and only converted 1 of 7 break chances.

Not a bad tournament though considering her injury and previous record on clay.

May 28th, 2005, 04:33 PM
Based on her red clay results, coming in I thought getting to the 3rd round would be a good result. But after killing her first two opponents, I though she maybe go even further. Still a solid tournament

May 28th, 2005, 09:59 PM
I suppose not a bad tourney, but I would have loved to seen her in the second week. She has probably just ruined my half term.

May 28th, 2005, 11:02 PM
Well at least its an improvement from last year her career is moving in the right direction.

May 29th, 2005, 03:58 AM
I'm slightly disappointed about the loss but I knew this would be a tough match. I'm hoping she can do better at Wimbledon.

May 29th, 2005, 04:13 AM
Kinda dejected with the loss. I thought she would win this one. I didn't watch the match but apparently she was unlucky during the setpoints. Well, at least now Bovina is through to R16.

May 29th, 2005, 04:14 AM
Q. What do you regret most today?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Well, having lost the match.

Well, no, I'm really sad because it's over, and I think it's a pity because I really had a chance here. I had opportunities, and I made a number of errors in the first set.

It's sad to lose that way, particularly when you have the support of the crowd. I got some important set points and they all started applauding. It was really nice, and I'm really sad that it's all over.

Q. You were really unlucky on those set points. You had a let on your side, then a ball on the line.

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Well, that's tennis. I think she played a really good match. She's really strong, and she's improved her game since I played her last in Miami. So I'm very disappointed.

Q. The fact that you lost those points affected you psychologically?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Well, I tried to forget. I tried to concentrate on the next game. But as I say, she was really, really good out there; she was better than me. I made the mistakes at the wrong time, and that's how the match was played.

Q. Did you have a problem with your ankle?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Well, that's very important, to be able to move. When you begin to be a bit afraid of sliding, it's a problem. I've had easy matches. Until that point, I never had a real test. This was the test and I made unforced errors when I shouldn't.

Q. Because you were a bit worried?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: It's true I wasn't able to train because of my ankle. I wasn't able to train. I've been playing an hour a day in the matches and that's it.

Q. What was your strategy to play Bovina, who has quite a special type of game?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Well, I knew that she wasn't so good on her forehand. Her serve is quite special because it has a very high rebound because she's so tall. But I was trying to concentrate on my own game rather than on my opponent, rather than on Bovina.

I think our games were comparable levels, it's just that I made some mistakes, some errors. Maybe I lack a bit of experience, because until that point I'd had easy matches.

Q. You tried two dropshots that gave you points that made her move around.

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Yes, the problem is that when I start on dropshots, after that, I don't stop, and it's not my best shot. So I try to win on my serve, on my forehand. I mustn't try to make too many dropshots.

Q. What do you think of the match between Amelie and Ivanovic, who you played in Rome?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: I don't think it will be a problem for Amelie. Ivanovic and I play very similar types of game, but Amelie has a very good game with topspin. I don't think it will be a problem.

Q. What are you going to do next?

TATIANA GOLOVIN: Rest for a while, particularly my ankle. I still feel a bit of pain. Since I sprained my ankle, I haven't stopped playing. So I think I need a bit of rest to be ready for the rest of the season.

May 29th, 2005, 11:37 PM
Get better soon Tati

May 30th, 2005, 10:50 PM
i was sad to hear that it was said on ESPN that after Tati lost she was crying. that made me feel really bad. best of luck to Tati in the future.

May 31st, 2005, 04:55 AM

do you happen to know who said that and in what context that was mentioned? were they talking about the other young players on the tour?

Jun 1st, 2005, 01:29 AM
^ rseto, it was mentioned by Mary Carillo during the French Open Highlights show at the end of the day. she just said that Golovin was seen crying after the match. it made me more pissed off and really sad for Tati after i heard it. it made the loss sting even more.

Jun 1st, 2005, 03:10 AM
thanks, yukon145.

mary carillo sure is the on the ball about tati. i heard her first mention tati's ankles last monday and then she shows up in her match with her ankles taped. and now this.

i hope tati is more disappointed with the timing of her injury than her results. hope she can shake it off since she has to play next week.
