First she will have to pass Hingis..... urghh.....I so hoped that wouldn't happen :(

May 13th, 2006, 01:10 PM
If Nicole plays Martina, it'll be tough to beat her.

I really hope she can win a few matches here, but it'll be hard with that kind of draw. :(

May 13th, 2006, 02:38 PM
Yea Hingis will be a tough one. Martina is going to test Nikki's patience. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Good luck Nicole :D

Good luck first round Nicole!!! Nicole should be able to handle Emma rather easily, then Martina is waiting!!!! Grr, this draw is not good for Nicole. I think she's got some chance to overpower Martina, but she will need to be extremely patient and play very well. If she could just get by that match, the draw is really open for her to go far since Momo pulled out.

Good luck Nikki. :worship:

Really hope she faces Martina, IMO it's not a given that Nikki will lose. :shrug:

Now Amelie Mauresmo and Sharapova has dropped out,nicole has chance to win the match,but it will be really hard to face Martina..
Good luck first round!

May 15th, 2006, 05:51 AM
I know, I wish they would've changed the draw around - so that Nikki was away from Martina. :(

It'll be good to see how Nikki fairs, as long as she's serving well and keeps the errors down, there's no reason why she can't win. :shrug:

May 15th, 2006, 01:45 PM
Nicole won 5-7 6-1 6-3. Tougher than I expected but glad to see her come through.

Next up is Martina, I hope Nicole can put up a good fight.

Nicole lost 5-7 3-6. She was up 3-0 in the first set... :o

I'm so sad Nicole couldn't at least won the first set. She had so many chances to break and everything. :sad:

maybe she has weak experience,and maybe she didn't play well,or maybe she has hurt,or maybe Hings played so well,or maybe~~~we don't know

It sucks that Nikki lost but this match doesn't favor her. Nikki's worst surface is clay combine that with a smart player who makes u play every point and u get this result. If this was on a different surface I think the scoreline would have been much different.
