Is it sure ? C'mon Tati i hope the ankle is well !
Like your avatar

Jun 21st, 2006, 01:10 PM
i hope it sure !

Jun 21st, 2006, 02:08 PM
Yes but she didn't play a grass tournament for 1 years... I hope an easy 1st tour... And after, everything is possible...

Tatiannaholic, i like : your avatar, the title's thread and your favorites players (some sexy girls...)

Jun 21st, 2006, 05:24 PM

Don't lose in the first round and please no Jamea or Bepa or any other players who have good 2 weeks during the grass season in her part of the draw. :tape:

And also new outfit please.

Jun 21st, 2006, 06:25 PM

Don't lose in the first round and please no Jamea or Bepa or any other players who have good 2 weeks during the grass season in her part of the draw. :tape:

And also new outfit please.

Here are many requests! :lol:
My only one would be to see Tati playing :yippee:

Jun 22nd, 2006, 12:31 AM
i only hope that shes healthy enough to play and doesnt injury her self more by doing so.

Jun 22nd, 2006, 02:59 AM
I hope they actually show her play (on tv)! They only show the the 10 seeds or so.

Jun 22nd, 2006, 10:25 AM
I like the title too :lol:
Good luck Tati

Jun 22nd, 2006, 04:53 PM
good luck tati. i hope she gets an easy first round.

Jun 23rd, 2006, 10:51 AM
Tati was at the players' party so i guess she'll surely play ! :hearts:

Jun 23rd, 2006, 11:46 AM
PRETTY GOOD DRAW for Tati .. She'll play her 1st round against Diaz-Oliva !
Go Tati !

Jun 23rd, 2006, 12:38 PM
Yeah i'm satisfied of the draw concerning Tati.
Let's say she has a "winnable" first match!

Jun 23rd, 2006, 12:51 PM
Yeah, Diaz-Oliva... I think she can win this match...

Jun 23rd, 2006, 12:51 PM
Good firts round!

Jun 23rd, 2006, 12:54 PM
The draw:

KRAJICEK, Michaela NED - STOSUR, Samantha AUS
GAJDOSOVA, Jarmila SVK - PRATT, Nicole AUS (Q)
DIAZ-OLIVA, Mariana ARG - GOLOVIN, Tatiana FRA [29]

IVANOVIC, Ana SCG [19] - GAGLIARDI, Emmanuelle SUI
CRAYBAS, Jill USA – SAFINA, Dinara RUS [14]

Jun 23rd, 2006, 02:06 PM
OMG. I had no idea she was even playing! :eek: :o :help:

She should get to the 3R. If she is anywhere near fully fit, she can easily get rid of Diaz-Oliva, who is very sucky lately. She'll probably have Gajdosova in the next round, who could stretch Tati to 3 if she's rusty. Then Mauresmo. Who knows what's going on with her. :lol:

Jun 23rd, 2006, 02:43 PM
Pretty sweet draw for Tati. Diaz-Oliva is one of the easiest first round opponents available and then in the second round there are two easy opponents as well. If Tati is fit she should be able to get to the 3rd round.

Jun 23rd, 2006, 02:45 PM
Go Tati! Don't lose in the first round :p Good luck :)

Jun 23rd, 2006, 05:37 PM
All I want is for her to win one match! C'mon Tati

Jun 23rd, 2006, 06:15 PM
not bad. this is the type of draw where i hope, whether she is 75% or 99% healthy, she can fight through two rounds and get to the 3rd round.

Jun 25th, 2006, 08:07 PM
Finally! A decent draw for Tati. I really hope she doesn't force herself to play just because it's Wimbledon and then lose in the first round because it would just ruin her confidence and also worsen her ankle.

Allez Tati.

Jun 25th, 2006, 08:09 PM
She'll prob play on Tuesday on Wednesday

Jun 26th, 2006, 12:45 AM
That draw is quite satisfactory...

Hope she's ready to play and that her injury isn't bothering her anymore.

Good luck Tati... Allez tu peux nous faire un joli come-back sur gazon :)

Jun 26th, 2006, 04:44 AM
She'll prob play on Tuesday on Wednesday

Ahh... too long a wait. I hope they show her playing here in the US.

Jun 26th, 2006, 07:03 PM
With that f**king rain, Tati will most probably play on Wednesday... or Thursday :lol:

Jun 27th, 2006, 03:57 AM
Tati will have to wait at least until Wednesday to play. Sucks. I hate Wimbledon.

Jun 27th, 2006, 09:34 PM
vamos tania!!!!

Jun 27th, 2006, 09:34 PM
Tati will play tomorrow on court 14:

1. Fish vs Ginepri
2. Golovin vs Diaz Oliva
3. Ferrero vs Karanusic
4. Bondarenko vs Vaidisova
5. Schnyder vs Bremond

Allez Tania win your first GS match of the season!!! :bounce::bounce:

Will someone be able to download/upload the match from Wimbledon Live?? :D

Jun 27th, 2006, 09:38 PM
C'mon Tati !

Jun 27th, 2006, 09:45 PM
Allez Tati!
She plays on a televised court :D

Jun 28th, 2006, 01:48 AM
Will someone be able to download/upload the match from Wimbledon Live?? :D

Word. I hope soemone can put that match up

VIVA LA TATI!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:26 AM
Allez Tati! Let's do a hell of a lot better than at the French with a hell of a lot better draw and a hell of a lot better surface for your game! :dance:

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:39 AM
Go Tati!

Jun 28th, 2006, 06:29 AM
good luck tati and go get a win!

Jun 28th, 2006, 01:56 PM
They are playing !
D-O has broken Tati :(

Jun 28th, 2006, 02:22 PM
This match looks depressing by now... I'm not watching it, but there seem to be so many unforced errors by Tatiana...
I really hope she can find her game back...
Come Tati... It's just Diaz-Olivia...

Jun 28th, 2006, 02:28 PM
JS il passe sur Sport +
I stopped watching it it's too sad .. C'mon tati in the 2nd

Jun 28th, 2006, 02:52 PM
Tati has just won the second set 6-2
Go on in the Thirs please Tati

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:20 PM
the third set is very diifcult to win ...
now 3-4

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:31 PM
Tati is serving for the match at 6-5.

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:36 PM
Tati still a choker. Gets broken serving for the match.

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:48 PM
Tati saved two match points serving at 6-7. Now 7-7. Allez Tati!

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:49 PM
She just saved 2 match points... almost giving me a heart attack :unsure:

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:54 PM
3 match point for tati

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:55 PM
Omg!!! Match Point As Of Now!!!! .... She Just Won!!!!!

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:55 PM
she wins !! :-)
3-6, 6-2, 9-7

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:56 PM
I love it when she does that... loses the first set, but comes zooming by in the last two sets.

Jun 28th, 2006, 03:56 PM
Tati is wonderful! Way too nerve-racking though with her having to save match points. But she is a winner!

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:01 PM
I'm very happy for Tati :worship:

but why was this so tough?

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:21 PM
Yeah I almost had an heart attack too!!
She shouldn't play with my nerves like that :p
She didn't play great tennis (except a bit in the second and sometimes at the end) but a win is a win!
So good job tati! :yeah:
And I hope it will be a bit easier in the second round!

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:21 PM
She lost so many difficult matches like this this year ( Santangelo, Clijsters, Mauresmo, Dulko ) and now even if it's against the 92nd player, it's a great win !

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:22 PM
I'm very happy for Tati :worship:

but why was this so tough?
Because she made 44 UEs !!!!! :eek:
She has to work on that

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:23 PM
They showed the match on French TV :
Tati did too many errors in the first set and Diaz had nothing to lose ..
In the second Tati improved and Diaz didn't play that well but in the 3rd set, at the end, Tati saved 2 matchpoint ( forehand winner + long rally ) and from that she played very well . She finished with an ace .

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:27 PM
She lost so many difficult matches like this this year ( Santangelo, Clijsters, Mauresmo, Dulko ) and now even if it's against the 92nd player, it's a great win !

i agree. serving 2nd in the 3rd set, i thought she was going to lose. but she hasn't won this type of close and tough match against anybody in the past.

don't think anyone has mentioned this but it looks like she is wearing asics now instead of nike.

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:30 PM
I'm very happy for Tati :worship:

but why was this so tough?

She has only played 1 match since Miami over two months ago. So I think we should give her a while to start playing well and get match fit.

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:34 PM
I hopefully she brings for her match tomorrow against Pratt

This reminds of last year when she beat Ruano Pascual in a third set tiebreak at the US Open. That win seemed to give her lots of confidence

Jun 28th, 2006, 04:59 PM
last year [...] at the US Open.

This reminds me when she won her 2nd round against Smashnova, yelling like a ......... It was so funny .. Whatever :rolleyes:

Tati was already wearing Aasics in RG i think

Jun 28th, 2006, 05:20 PM
I'm glad that she won but she has still to improve her game. Congrats Tati :)

Jun 28th, 2006, 06:30 PM
tati fought very very well. she was down 2-4, 0-40 and then 4-5. she served for the match but lost that game quite easily. then she served to stay in the match at 6-7. she missed an overhead into the bottom of the net to go down 0-30 and then at 30-30 in the same game she thought she hit a winner, but it was out. she screamed what! and stared at the linesjudge and then the umpire for a minute or two. i realeized she was now matchpoint down and i kept thinking "o fuck. o fuck. she has no concentration on the match now. there's no way she'll win. there's no way so can win the next point after she spent so much time on that arguement. she's too emotional to focus. o god she just faulted her first serve. she's going to double fault the match away. i know it. fuck. this horrible game is going to lose her the match. the easy overhead miss and then the line call, it was too much for her" but then she fucking fought and won the damn thing.

i know chokotati of last year would have lost this match 6-4 in the third or something, but i could tell when she was really down she just kept thinking "i came back vs sharapova, i could do it now too" you're so amazing tat!!!!!

Jun 28th, 2006, 06:59 PM
Agreed with most of peeps here. Tati needs this kind of match to boast her confidence and her match against Sharapova definately helped her attitude in today's match.

It's her first match since RG so, I'm giving her the benefit of the doubt for playing three marathon sets. Allez Tati. Good luck against Nicole. It's winnable :smash:

Jun 28th, 2006, 07:19 PM
The match made my day! :banana:
I had the chance to watch it on TV and Oh! It was really gripping at the end when Tati saved matchpoints! When she broke at 7-7, i was jumping everywhere on my sofa. That's a great result for her to get her confidence back on the track. She did way too many UEs but the game she produced against Sharapova is still here. She just needs matches.
I am optimistic for her next match against Pratt.
Allez Tat!!! :bounce: (her apparently brand new nickname :shrug: )

Jun 28th, 2006, 07:27 PM
Hopefully we can get a video of the last 3 games where she saved the MPs.

Jun 28th, 2006, 07:47 PM
Yes, Nouf said he had recorded it

Jun 28th, 2006, 09:59 PM
Yes, Nouf said he had recorded it

That Nouf rocks! Nouf always brings us the best of Tati and Maria. Thanks Nouf!

I love it when Tati saves match points... I think its gets her adrenaline running - maybe that's why she let's the first set go at times. Plus, it keeps me at the edge of my seat!

Cool hope to see her !

Jun 28th, 2006, 10:21 PM
Poor Tati having to play on a shitty court... She deserves the Central court, you Wimbledon organisers! :p

Jun 29th, 2006, 12:16 AM
Great fight Tati. Now go and smash the Pratt. :bounce:

Jun 29th, 2006, 02:31 AM
really glad to see Tati pull out this win, maybe it will help her regain her confedence in her game.

but i was really really happy to see no taping or anything around Tati's ankle, hopefully this means its pretty much healed.

Jun 29th, 2006, 02:33 PM
Both first matches are finished on court 17 so Tati is gonna come on court soon .
C'mon tania !

Jun 29th, 2006, 03:33 PM
As of now she won the first set 6-2, and the has the advantage in the 2nd set with each having a game a piece.

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:02 PM
she lost !!! :bigcry:

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:05 PM
Tati :sad:

I'm guessing she just isn't match fit enough.

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:09 PM
tati lost 6-2 4-6 4-6.

before the tournament, i thought i would be a little mad if she didn't make the 3rd round but i'm actually ok with the result. she was able to play two long matches and get a little more fit for the rest of the year. keep on training tati!

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:12 PM
Oh Tati :sad:

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:30 PM
THe problem is always the same .. She chokes ..
I knew she will lose the second set when she won the first, and she looked desperate in the 3rd .. Tati always does the same mistake but she doesn't look to work at it so now tati you must work on your mental ... That's really too sad but now it's a habbit !
Every time she loses like this i'm saying : She's learning, she won't do it the first time with experience .. But now she has lost like this more than 10 times .. So dunno ...
Whatever she played two matches and won one so that's cool for a comeback .. But now Tati isn't allowed to do this anymore .

Good luck in Cincinnati and i hope we'll show her cheering for her FedCup friends .

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:32 PM
Poor tati, what a bad news :sobbing:

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:36 PM
Bad match. Pratt is in good form but Tati was in control

I want Tati to get fit

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:47 PM
i missed the 2nd set. what happened? did tati have a chance to serve for the match or something like that?

Jun 29th, 2006, 05:54 PM
No in the 2nd Tati choked ( expected ) and played bad. And Pratt was yelling like a man in some moments like if he was playing THE match of his career.. lol
But now If Mary doesn't play FedCup, Georges Goven will have to choose (after Amé) between Tati, Nath ( who lost 1st round) ..

Jun 29th, 2006, 06:09 PM
well, it was only a small choke then. :) i followed the 3rd set and it seemed that tati never really had a chance to break serve so i thought that pratt was playing well also.

i assume tati wants to play fed cup but i'm a little afraid. if she does, she'll have to play on 3 different surfaces on 4 weeks. :scared:

Jun 29th, 2006, 06:35 PM
Pratt was extremely beatable, so a disappointing result. Unfortunately, I couldn't follow live scores. Elena's marathon was going on. :lol:

Last year, Pratt pushed Venus in the 2R, so I guess she might be okay on grass. :shrug:

I'm pretty saddened by this loss, especially if she had her chances, but it's no biggie. I didn't expect much out of this tourney.

Kick ass on the hardcourts, Tati! :rocker2:

Jun 29th, 2006, 07:06 PM
Tati's gonna train much and when she'll be fitter she's gonna do some damages on the hardcourts. Can't wait for the FedCup (if she plays) and Cincinnati !
Hopefully she just sees the good side of her comeback .
