Yes, finally Maria Sharapova is in the draw! I am really happy that Maria is back. At least she has two first easy rounds to get enough practice under her belt. I look forward her meeting with the gaint Myriam. Myriam will beat Maria this time for a revenage, for sure. But... if Maria beats Myriam, Maria will have a very good chance to go all the way to the final (again) if Hsieh (I hope Vera beats Hsieh!) and Widjaja get upset by other players...

Wow, the bottom (oh my) looks way much heavier than the top of the draw.

GOOD LUCK THE TWO MARIAS!!! Poor them, Sharapova has to meet Myriam and Kirilenko to meet Barbora in third rounds. :bounce: :bounce:

A Shark(y) sighting al last! :wavey:

Don't be so negative about Maria Sharapova's chances! ;) I just hope Maria isn't bored with the juniors. Why no warm up red clay tournaments? :confused:

Maria K. will have a tough first round match against the much bigger and stronger Ally Baker! :(

Udachi Maria's and the other Russian girls! :bounce:

Myriam Casanova v Evgenia Linetskaya

Jun 2nd, 2002, 08:58 PM
GOOD LUCK GISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jun 2nd, 2002, 09:24 PM
Eggy, I don't consider Casanova vs. Linetskaya as one of the best matches in 2nd round. Myriam will prevail easily.

I would say the best match btw Bartoli and Bastrikova would be more entertaining.

Good LUCK to VERA! I hope she finds her way to beat Hsieh.

Good LUCK to TWO MARIAs! I am bit a nervous for Kirilenko. Tough match for her but clay advantage suits her. It should be ok.

I have to get up at 2am to follow Sharapova's and Kirilenko's matches... *Sigh*

Jun 2nd, 2002, 11:23 PM
The problem with Marion is only confidence... and also the fact that she hates clay...
The problem with Tatiana is her draw !!!!!

Jun 2nd, 2002, 11:32 PM
Gus, I don't think Tatiana will have many problems tomorrow, she will beat Cory Ann on the red stuff,

I expect her to at least make rd 3.

and Sharky ........ right about Anna v Marion, gonna be a good one.

Anna definately has a shot here.

Myriam should win but it won't be as easy as you think, then today Myriam did play sloppy so could be more focused vs Evgenia

Jun 5th, 2002, 01:32 AM
Well, I'm just back home from three days at the French open, which were spent almost all (apart from a couple of sets of Ladies doubles) watching the juniors, both doubles and singles.
The player who I saw most of was the highly impressive Ashley Harkleroad. Also was very impressed with Domachowska and the tiny Yugoslav Ana Ivanovic. Lots of photos to come, about 60 (as mentioned in my newly updated signature). The main disappointment for me was Brattchikova, for whom there seemed to be a lack of fighting spirit in her defeat to Tamaela.
The USA seem to have a lot of good players coming through, such as Jamea Jackson (along with Carly Gullickson)

the cat
Jun 5th, 2002, 04:29 PM
Ashley beat Anna-Lena in straight sets! Well done Ashley! :bounce: Here's hoping for an Ashley versus Maria final! ;) Right, Eggy?

Jun 5th, 2002, 05:11 PM
Cat in your dreams,

if both make it I'll streak at Wimbledon

the cat
Jun 5th, 2002, 08:21 PM
Why the attitude, dude? :confused: They are both playing well enough to make it! You just don't like it that Ashley is playing well enough to beat all the junior girls! :eek:

Jun 5th, 2002, 08:43 PM
good she's doing well but i don't see her coming thru to the final

Jun 5th, 2002, 09:43 PM
I believe that Harkleroad is probably more likely to win the doubles with Ally Baker, than the singles title. Widjaja should win the singles, but there a potentially thrilling semi-final between Baker/Harkleroad and Widjaja/Dulko. The other semi should be Casanova/Clijsters against Hsieh/Kuznetsova.
Another interesting point is that the French officials did not worry about coaches shouting instructions to their players, which I heard in several matches.
Bizarrely, one fuss they did make was over a baseball cap that Kirilenko wanted to wear to shield her eyes from the sun yesterday. I think the sponsor name was too large!
Incidentally Svetlana Kuznetsova, although very powerful, seems to be one of the least mobile of the top junior players. I feel she relies too much on a strong serve.

Thanks Blue! Keep up the good reporting. And if you get a chance, please see the Maria Sharapova - Myriam Casanova match and report on that. Thanks!

MArion?? Well.. too bad.. 3 games is not too bad as Ashley is da bomb!!

Jun 6th, 2002, 03:22 PM
Eggy, what happened to Maria? And what's with these slow starts of hers in big matches? :confused: She is often blown out of the first set, just like today. That's not a pattern I want to see develope for her.

Udachi Vera and Svetlana! :bounce:

And good luck Ashley! :D Well done! :)

Jun 6th, 2002, 03:38 PM
clay is not her game, she's hardly ever played any tourns on the red stuff, Myriam has grown up on the red stuff and its her fav surface.

but true, these slow starts are getting worrying.

Sorry Cat, but I'm back home now for a few days, and then I'm going up to Birmingham for the WTA event starting on Saturday. However I'm about to post three of my photos from Roland Garros to my gallery here on wtaworld. I should have time to do more in a couple of weeks time.

I'm pleasantly surprised by Ashley's fine play! :bounce: I didn't see any signs that this would happen. Especially on slow red clay. Did you, Eggy? :confused: Beating Strycova proves that Ashley is playing at a high level. Because Babora is ready for the pro's.

Ashley gives much of the credit for her turnaround to her new coach, Jose Luis Clerc. Eggy, does he work for the USTA? :confused:

the cat
Jun 7th, 2002, 04:39 PM
Eggy, why are you always rooting for Babora Strycova? :confused: Except when she plays a Russian. Sure, Barbora is talented and beautiful! :D But don't you want a Russian girl to end the year as the #1 ranked junior? That can't happen if Barbora keeps winning.

Jun 8th, 2002, 02:18 PM
great performence against sveta, marta!

she lost 3:6 3:6, but after a very hard fight!

she's playing next in Kêdzierzyna-KoŸla (poland 10k).

good luck there!

now, good luck to vera in roland garros! go girl!

Jun 8th, 2002, 03:31 PM
Angie v. Ashley in Final!

Good luck Angie!!!

Jun 8th, 2002, 03:54 PM
I root for Barbora cos i like her, she's a very nice girl :)

If a Russian can't be #1, i'd like it to be another girl from East Europe.

Hope Angie can win the final :)
