If Nastya had a long skirt and castanets in that picture, she could easily pass for a flamenco dancer! :)

Love her shorts with the white stripe. That shirt is a bit too short this time.

Well, although a certain blonde blew the prospect of a dream semi, I think Nasty has a good chance to get into Week 2. Jackson should not be able to hang with her for more than a set. Rnd 3 will be tough but winnable.

Regarding outfits, Nastya certainly has one of the best of the tournament so far, especially compared to that awful shower curtain Lena D. was wearing. The shame of appearing in public in that getup must have cost her at least 3-4 games.

Anyway, hope somebody saved me a seat on the Nastya bandwagon and we ride into the next round!

Miffy...you have seat with your name attached to it!

my mumīs constantly telling me to wear something which does cover my whole waist but that Nastya/Hantuchova shirt is even too short for my taste which is why I will start the campaign: "Nike, give Nastuchova something to wear!" ...uhhhh... :lol:

Wow! Do you suppose Elena was wearing that because she lost a bet or something?

Hehe...I gotta admit Ola and me do the "kindly asking"-thing out of gratitude and because we donīt want people to sue us but now thatīs definetly weird. Whoever here works for that side, might at least ask? Would be a nice thing to do I guess.

Nastya looks great as always! the outfit fits her perfect body so well, so nothing wrong with the small size ;)
BTW was she playing her match on a practice court or what? :o look at the chairs laying behind her and the lack of crowd :rolleyes:
Hope she gets another court for her next match: she deserves it :fiery:

Nastya plays mixed with Jurgen, they had to make friends in this off-season meetings..He's fave player of my friend so this can be interesting couple :rolleyes:

And yeah we are fan site and we ask for permission, really shocket official site does that kind of things, surely not very polite.

I totaly agree with you max!!! but I'll say that it cost her 5 or 6 games!!!
lena should go to nike too...they make realy great outfit + nastya always choose the one which is the more beautiful....and fit her the better!

I'm crazy about Lena D., but when I saw that outfit I thought there was something wrong with my television set.

if about 7 or 8 other matches will be cancelled we have big chances to see nastya at german eurosport tonight. :lol: :lol: :lol:
but all in all my expectation is,that we will not see a single minute of her unless she goes up to the semifinal

I was at her match today. She didn't play too well today and it was obvious she was having problems. I didn't think she would finish the match she really didnt look well. She had the trainer come to her every change of ends coz of breathing difficulties in the third. It was extremely hot today. The only reason Nastya won today is becoz she really wanted to. She fought hard and deserved the win.

well...this is good cause I realy think that the more important thing in her game is not how much she serves well or not or anything else...the more important is if she wants to win or not!
I'm sure she realy wants to do well...and I hope she'll do!!!
thx for your report domenicdemaria...it gives me a lot of hope

It okay. I agree thats what I was happy about. She gave it her all. I seriously thought she would retire but she kept playing. She looked terrible at one stage. I hope Nastya keeps that intensity up. If she does she will be a deadly opponent for everyone. She didn't let miss opportunites bother her and kept fighting against a tough opponent.

Nastya wins quite comfortably 6-3 6-1 in the match against Arvidsson that I was luckily able to see on TV. however a lot of silly double faults and she was getting quite frustrated out there at times, but most of the time was playing some great shots, and if she can lower those unforced errors, can go even further! keep it up Nastya!

She meets Schynder in the 4th round. Good luck
Unfortunately she and Dina lost in doubles.

What a great match from Myskina in the 3rd round ... Yes, she still wasnt at her best - BUT close to it!!! 27 winners, what a fantastic stat!!! Next up is Patty - SMASH her Nastya :)

AlexB
Jan 22nd, 2006, 10:07 PM
if she beats schnyder, ill take my chances against amelie or vaidisova for a shot at the semis...in other words its not as impossible as many of the experts would think...its also good that she has been under the radar in this tournament, and just getting the job done without any pressure or expectations

MC Kola
Jan 23rd, 2006, 07:02 AM
Schnyder df Myskina 6-2 6-1 :sad:

well, it's about 60 degrees hotter in Melbourne than back in Moscow... (almost 40'C in Melbourne, as low as -23'C in Moscow around now) so it must be very difficult for Nastya to adapt to these conditions... but a great effort to make it this far =) she's set a platform to build upon for the rest of the year :cool:

did she win the mixed doubles match?

michelle11
Jan 23rd, 2006, 11:59 AM
when everybody was able to see,that her tactics of playing aggressive and "blow her away" would not work,she didn't change it at all.

so the question that interests me most of all is,what did jens tell her to do???
who of both is responsible for going on with a tactics which is totally unsuitable??
this loss in this way was so unnecessary. :fiery:
