View Full Version : Interesting First Round Matches

I think these matches have the chance of an upset/could be some high quality tennis...hoow about you?

Mauresmo vs. Shaughnessy-Shaughnessy is playing the best shes played in a while and Mauresmo has always been shaky at RG...However, Amelie's title in Australia could play a factor in her confidence here and it could be a rout.

Sprem vs. Likhotseva-I'm pretty sure that Karolina will take out the slumping Elena

Schnyder vs. Krajicek-Again, I smell a possible upset...Patty has not been in the best form, and Krajicek keeps on winning in Instanbul

Sharapova vs. Washington-This match up will be interesting to see Sharapova's form after her injury...I think Sharapova will respond well and got lucky in drawing the erratic, out-of-form Mashona...A Sharapova first-rounder could've been much more interesting had she drawn someone like Na Li, Xheng, or Jankovic.

Ivanovic vs. Stosur-Stosur has been playing well lately and Ivanovic has lost some of her momentum, should be a good, hard-hitting match (and I still expect Ana to get through despite her recent injury)

Sucha vs. Dementieva-Any first-rounder with Dementieva is interesting, and what makes it even more interesting is that Sucha just reached a tournament final (losing to Shaughnessy)

Golovin vs. Zheng-Zheng, after a miserable start to the year, has been on fire recently. Tatiana on the other hand, hasn't played since the Nasdaq in her infamous match with Sharapova where she twisted her ankle badly and put up a valiant fight. It will be interesting to see Golovin's form, she could have had much easier first round opponents then Zheng.

Razzano vs. Clijsters-Clijsters loves reminding everyone she is not at home on clay, and Razzano always plays well in front of the French...could be interesting considering Clijsters lack of motivation as of late.

I smell an upset between MAVK and Arvidsson, although I thought before MAVK could not even win a game possibly. :lol:

I think Hantuchova will lose to LDL.

Hantuchova-Dominguez, Hantuchova is the favourite but clay suits more the game of Dominguez

Safina-Zvonareva caught my eye..

I never thought I'd see Vera ranked soooooo low. :o She was always so consistent, steadily improving up until the beginning of 2005, then it has just been hell from then on. :o She is so talented and has a game like noone else I've seen.. I just don't know what's up. You'd think by now her emotions would dry up and she wouldn't let them effect her tennis as they have in the past. :shrug:

Now that Sania is in the final in doubles this week, I think it's better for her to start tuesday too so she has time to recover!

I'll give you a short summary if you ask me :wavey:

Stosur vs Ivanovic, Mauresmo vs Shaugnessey, Myskina vs Mirza and Safina vs Zvonareva are all INTERESTING first round matches .. Cant wait for the action to begin!
