Yes it is quite an impressive draw. It will be a pretty good indicator for the Australian Open I would suspect.

it's pretty amazing! :) :yeah:

Jan 6th, 2007, 06:28 AM
Imagine if Justine was in the draw. The draw would be even stronger. Anyways, I'm looking forward to this tournament.

Jan 6th, 2007, 06:29 AM
will this tournament be in the tennis channel? espn?

Yes it is quite an impressive draw. It will be a pretty good indicator for the Australian Open I would suspect.

Yeah, it even seems tougher than AO will be, since it's most/all the higher rated players, but in half as many slots.

I eyeballed it for who the Qs will face in first round, and they all will have tough matches (Hantuchova, Golovin, Schnyder, or Dementieva).

Jan 6th, 2007, 06:35 AM
hingis v jankovic, hantuchova v viadisova [1st round]
tati v momo [2nd round]

Jan 6th, 2007, 06:35 AM
as usual, I love Sydney! :hearts:

Jan 6th, 2007, 06:36 AM
I believe that it is being shown on the tennis channel, but only the QF's on? dunno. ESPN isn't showing any tourneys leading up to the AO.

As far as the draw, it is intriguing only if people are going to play their best. Far too often in women's tennis a great match up becomes a lopsided/error filled event.

Jan 6th, 2007, 06:37 AM
Hantuchova vs. Vaidisova. :eek:

My faves. :drool:

Jan 6th, 2007, 06:45 AM

i'm pleased with hingis' draw. jankovic, zvonareva, mauresmo are all excellent players who hingis might have to beat in melbourne.

Jan 6th, 2007, 07:45 AM
The draw is super interesting, so many tough matches in first round and then in the second. I just can't wait for this tournament to start :yeah:

Jan 6th, 2007, 07:49 AM
Wow, great stuff indeed. :eek: :yeah:

Jan 6th, 2007, 08:24 AM
:eek: those matches!
also Kim vs Safina 2R will be interesting...
but especially Hingis - Jankovic 1R will be intense

Safina not being seeded just shows the top 10 overhall of this competition:eek:

Hingis vs jankovic!!!- Jankovic has the slight mental edge after winning the title in Auckland, martina may be a little bit down after that final loss. It's anybody's match i feel.........

Mauresmo might have to face the ever-dangerous Golovin. I'm sure Golovin is still trying to make up for her match against amelie in the Paris indoors where she held a matchpoint. Golovin has had matchplay and Amelie hasnt so, who knows?

Kim- Safina second round! Well Safina won their last meeting;)

Jan 6th, 2007, 09:56 AM
I just cant beleive that #11 in world aint seeded thats how tough this tournie is and if henin was still here :eek:

Jan 7th, 2007, 12:40 AM
Sydney always has amazing draws...
too bad that there are always some injuries and heat strokes and stuff. :(

Jan 7th, 2007, 12:44 AM
The field is deep in top 30 players, but most of them aren't going to win many matches this week.

Jan 7th, 2007, 12:52 AM
What a great draw, and this is just the warm-up to the Aussie Open. :)

Jan 7th, 2007, 01:22 AM
this year's Oz has the potential to be :bounce:

only Vee and Masha are the only possible contenders that haven't played/aren't playing this week

I'm SO excited!

Jan 7th, 2007, 06:39 AM
Allez Amelie , Go Momo
