Neptune
Jan 23rd, 2007, 05:59 PM
She will play in Paris,the open gaz de France and then Indians wells,Miami and Charleston,that's all we know.

Sexysova
Jan 23rd, 2007, 06:17 PM
yes :) you can check my site :) but I think a lot of information are here :) yes. Nicole will play OPEN GAZ DE FRANCE in PARIS, then IW and MIAMI(USA) and finally CHARLESTON(USA - start of clay season) :)

I hope I get to see her in Miami! :yippee:

Sharapova's_Boy
Jan 24th, 2007, 05:17 AM
It's important for Nikki to play IW and Miami, since this is the most important time of the year for her to pick up points, since she didn't play these last year.

Sexysova
Jan 24th, 2007, 10:08 AM
yes she can get many pts :)

Top 8 seeds as of 1/25 entry list for Indian Wells

Sharapova, Petrova, Hingis, Dementieva, Safina, Vaidisova, Chakvetadze, Ivanovic.

Sharapova's_Boy
Jan 26th, 2007, 03:00 AM
Hmm, hopefully by then Dementieva would've fallen below Nikki so she can get that #4 seed.

Neptune
Jan 26th, 2007, 09:33 AM
Interesting draw for Nicole.And I would love to see her play Maria.

Sexysova
Jan 26th, 2007, 01:01 PM
great seeded, she will be 5 :) because she will be better than Safina maybe after OPEN GAZ DE FRANCE than DEMENTIEVA because Elena must defend title in TOKYO :)

Vaidisova
Jan 28th, 2007, 06:44 AM
I hope Nicole plays a grass warm up this year. She should have played one last year but withdrew after run at RG.

Sexysova
Jan 28th, 2007, 07:06 AM
yes she should play minimally at Eastbourne :) I think she should play some tour on grass because of Wimbledon :)

Sharapova's_Boy
Jan 28th, 2007, 09:30 AM
Yeah, she should definitly play either Eastbourne or s'Hertogenbosch.

She needs more matches on grass, she doesn't exactly play awesome on it.

Sexysova
Feb 24th, 2007, 08:34 AM
ok I post it here now :) I know from Nicole's manager that Nicole will play IW, Miami, Charleston, Berlin and Rome and RG and maybe then Wimbledon(so maybe Nicole won't play any grass tour :( )

Vaidisova
Mar 8th, 2007, 07:56 PM
Apparently 8 out of top 10 will play (committed) Berlin. So it will be another tournament with a tough field (unless there are withdrawals).

Sexysova
Mar 9th, 2007, 03:58 AM
Wow! :)

ok I post it here now :) I know from Nicole's manager that Nicole will play IW, Miami, Charleston, Berlin and Rome and RG and maybe then Wimbledon(so maybe Nicole won't play any grass tour :( )

She is not going to play Istanbul or Strasbourg?

Lunaris
Mar 9th, 2007, 10:21 AM
For sure. :tape:
Sorry for reply to such an old post, but I haven't noticed it by now.

Nicole on grass can't be compared to Nicole on hard or clay. On grass she struggles mainly with her movement and ain't able to control rallies like on other surfaces (my opinion is based on what I saw last year). She needs more experience with playing on grass therefore I agree she should play at one Wimby warm-up tournament be it Birmingham or Eastbourne.

Vaidisova
Mar 10th, 2007, 04:05 AM
yeah she needs more matches on grass, so if she skips a warm up before Wimbledon then it will be a bad decision...

I'm glad she is playing Berlin and Rome before RG. She'll also have Charleston so that's 3 Tier I clay tournaments before RG (plus Fed Cup will be on clay too).

Nicole needs to reach a final soon though. Her last final was Strasbourg. :( Of course she has been close in many tournaments. Since her upcoming tournaments are all Tier I if she manages a final then it will be a nice achievement because it'd be her first.:)

Sexysova
Mar 10th, 2007, 05:54 AM
yes I agree with you, she should play minimally Eastbourne which is TIER II I think so good tour before W :)

Vaidisova
Mar 20th, 2007, 07:40 PM
Nicole is not on the entry list for Warsaw (Tier II) which is no surprise since it has been said that she will be playing Berlin and Rome.

Nicole will have 3 Tier I clay tournaments and Fed Cup before Roland Garros.

Sharapower8
Mar 20th, 2007, 09:04 PM
does anybody know if Nikki is playing Berlin or Praha?
(I wish she'll play Praha)

Sexysova
Apr 19th, 2007, 04:39 AM
I hope that yes :) she doesn't have to defend pts, only 25pts from Rome I think but she will defend it and red clay tour should be great part of season... we will see how she will do in FED CUP, she said in interview that she has great form :)

it's great to see it :) I think it's right decision because Nicole needs more experience and matches on grass... she isn't too skilful on grass I think... now she can have great preparation before Wimby :) I hope she will play it because it begins very close since Fed Cup so... Nicole has to pass two exams at school... I hope she will play it :) but I think she should if she entered ;)

Excellent news that she's playing Eastbourne!
Nicole could really do well on grass, but she certainly needs more practice/matches on it. Hopefully she does well there and at Wimbledon. :D

Vaidisova
Jun 7th, 2007, 10:31 PM
Nicole is scheduled to play JPMorgan Chase Open Tier II in Los Angeles beginning August 6th.


Maria Sharapova, the 2006 U.S. Open champion and the current No. 2 ranked player in the world and Serena Williams, the 2007 Australian Open champion and current No. 8 ranked player lead the list of elite players entered to participate in southern California's most prestigious summer tennis tradition, the 2007 Los Angeles Ultimate Tennis Celebration presented by Herbalife on the hard courts of The Home Depot Center on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills in Carson.

Joining Sharapova and Serena Williams in the 56 player field will be Nicole Vaidisova and Dinara Safina (currently ranked 10th and 11th in the world) and Nadia Petrova (ranked #12).

it's great she can earn many new pts from this TIER II event ;)

Sexysova
Jun 7th, 2007, 10:39 PM
it's really tough schedule for Nicole: Stanfor, next week San Diego, next week LA, next week Rogers Cup then probably one week off before US OPEN... what do you think? I think she will play Stanford, San Diego and Montreal for sure and if she entered LA as it was written... so one month full of Nicole... it's great ;) but I hope she won't be tired for US OPEN... but she shouldn't if she will have WEEK OFF!! I think she won't play New Heaven :)

Vaidisova
Jun 7th, 2007, 11:04 PM
I'm not sure if she will play 4 weeks in a row since she has commented before about being smart with scheduling and her health.

But Nicole hasn't played that much this year (missing out to injury, etc) so perhaps she will play a lot this summer. I guess we'll see when news comes of commitments to other tournaments...

Nicole's schedule may look like this for the summer:

June 18 - Eastbourne (Tier II)
June 25 - Wimbledon (Grand Slam)
July 14 - Fed Cup (vs. Spain)
July 23 - Stanford (Tier II)
July 30 - San Diego (Tier I)
Aug 06 - Los Angeles (Tier II)
Aug 13 - Toronto (Tier I)
Aug 27 - US Open (Grand Slam)

so we have the same opinion with her schedule... I hope Nicole will play this schedule :) if she won't... I'm sure she will play Stanford, San Diego, Toronto and USO or San Diego, LA, Toronto and USO... if she will play only three events before USO in America - I'm sure she won't play Stanford or LA... :)

Well it is perfect for us
I think that Nicole needs lots of match. We can't really compare those 2 girls but maybe it's like Jankovic: maybe if she will play more matches, she will improve fastly because training isn't that good

Neptune
Jun 9th, 2007, 09:45 AM
She won't play 4 weeks in a row before the Us Open.She should play Stanford, the field is always weak and she could have a good chance.IMO, Nicole doesn't need to play a lot.She needs to win a key match to find the confidence she lost.It could be anything....

Interesting schedule.
I think that she may very well play something similar to that but I can't see here playing both of the tier 1s. She'll either play the California Trifecta (Stanford, San Diego, LA) or she'll skip San Diego and play Toronto. It really depends on how her body holds up. But she should play at least one of the tier 2s, LA or Stanford, better shot at a final or even a title (which I think she needs right now, since it's been over a year since she won her last title.)

But I'm so ready for the summer hardcourts, it's my favorite time of the year. :D

On the contrary I think she will play both TIER I tours and one TIER II :)

To be honest, I hope she plays a lot. :shrug:

I mean not like to where she's not getting any rest, but if she wants to make YEC she will have to play more than 7 tournaments per 5 months.

I really hope she'll play Toronto, because I'm going to be there! :bounce: She was at the Rogers Cup in 2005 and 2006 (though last year she retired after her 1st match), so hopefully she should be back again in 2007.

I wonder what Nicole's schedule will be for the fall.

After San Diego - her only big result from last year is the Moscow SF (over 100 points):

Montreal: R16
US Open: R32
Beijing: R16
Moscow: SF
Zurich: R32
Linz: SF

I'd like to see her play Beijing, Stuttgart, Moscow, Zürich, and maybe one more tournament after the US Open.

Nicole already beat Mauresmo to reach QF at the 2006 French Open (and also beat Mauresmo at Moscow last year), so obviously Nicole knows how to handle her.

Jul 20th, 2007, 05:16 PM
Nicole could have achieved a lot more already if she was more stable in the head game.

Hopefully she gets better at it.

Yeah, it's pretty obvious Nikki has the wood over Mauresmo. But still making the Quarters after her horrible loss to Henin at Eastbourne impressed me.

If I could choose Nicole's schedule for the rest of the year, I would choose this.

Montreal
New Haven
US Open
Luxembourg
Moscow
Zurich
Linz

This would give her enough points from playing 3 Tier 1s a slam and 2 Tier 2s. Plus after playing 4 weeks in a row from Montreal through USO, she would then have 2 weeks off, then Luxembourg, another week off, then the final 3 weeks, and if she makes the YEC 1 week off before it. I hope she plays something like this, because she could handle it and it would help a lot.

I hope she will play Toronto, she needs to try how she feels on court again before USO!

so this is my schedule:

Montreal
US Open
Beijing
maybe Luxembourg but she plays at Stuttgart don't understand to it!
then of course Moscow, Zurich so she probably won't play at Linz if she plays Stuttgart because it's three weeks in a row maybe she will play four weeks in a row lol! or she won't play Zurich where she doesn't defend any pts(lost in first round last year)

we'll see.. I hope she will play mainly Montreal, USO, Beijing, Moscow and Zurich... these tours are the most important I think.. or Luxembourg instead of Beijing..

WTA Tour - Vaidisova hopeful on U.S. Open

Eurosport - Thu, 09 Aug 15:39:00 2007

Nicole Vaidisova is still hoping to fit in time for the U.S. Open despite pulling out of next week's WTA Toronto event.


The world number 16 has just recently resumed training after a bad case of glandular fever, and has not played since her strong run to the quarter-finals at Wimbledon.

The Czech teenager's agent, Olivier R. van Lindonk, told eurosport.yahoo.com that Vaidisova is still not feeling 100% but is fighting hard to be ready for Flushing Meadows.

"Nicole is in Bradenton recovering from the strong viral infection she contracted towards the end of Wimbledon," he said.

"She is working very hard with David Hogarth, her physiotherapist, on getting herself back on the Tour.

"Although she is back training she is not 100% recovered and not ready to play in Toronto. She is planning to play in the U.S. Open next."

The 18-year-old reached a career high of seventh in the world earlier this season but her injury problems have seen her slip out of the Top 10 since then.

In an ideal world, Ivanović, trying to console her after the loss. Ana is such a nice person :p

I don't think she'll make the US Open...if she does, it would be awfully convenient for her to have recovered just in time for the GS (ideally she would play a warm up event)...if she's not fully fit then there's no point, an early round loss would only have a debilitating effect

Obviously Nicole needs more time off to fully recover and to try to get a 100% healthy body back. (Nicole was unable to serve many aces at the US Open like she usually did in the past. And also, in her match against Peer, Nicole didn’t approach the net as much as she did playing Ivanovic at Wimbledon, and Nicole also didn’t play with a variety of games in her match against Peer like she did against Ivanovic; which make me come to the conclusion that Nicole hasn’t fully recovered yet.)

She'll never get to where she belongs in the rankings with this schedule.
But I strongly believe that Nicole will climb back to her career best ranking in the first half of 2008.

i know that if she plays linz that she has a better chance of winning the tournament because its a tier II but she is capable of doing well in the tier I events and needs 2 play them and even if she doesnt win a tournament it will give her alot more experience playing in a tier I against most of the best players like henin and sharapova williams sisters etc rather than playing in a tier II against 1 mabe 2 high ranked players if your lucky and if she can come away with a win in a tier I imagine the confidence that it will give her compared to winning a tier II

Nicole was supposed to make an appearance in Bradenton, FL today, but according to this article (http://www.bradenton.com/sports/story/143131.html), she went to Prague to "get an undisclosed injury checked."
Maybe this is the reason why Nicole withdrew from Stuttgart?

squidkid posted it 11th September and Stuttgart starts 1st October. If there was any injury in the first place, I doubt it was so serious to prevent her from playing at a tournament which starts almost a month later. And if it was then gods help her.

yes.. maybe she isn't 100% recovered or she's but she doesn't want to play so quickly again so maybe she will start with Moscow.. I think if she isn't 100% she did it well that she pulled out..

Her schedule has been so weird this year. :o
Even outside of her injury and sickness.

Pratically no chance to improve her ranking at all the rest of the year.
She has SF points to defend in both Moscow and Linz.

Oh well, as long as she is healthy.

What's this?! All my faves are trying to mess up their schedules as much as possible. Daniela entering Luxembourg after playing in Asia two weeks in a row in a desperate attempt to make YEC. :tape:

It's not desperate at all. It's almost a given that #9, if not #10, will give access to the YEC. And all she has to do to reach #9 is to stay ahead of Marion and Petrova. It's like that hungry bear joke - it's not the bear she has to outrun, it's the other guy. And the Luxembourg field is shite (MD cutoff may be very low, but it lacks elite players) - easy points for the taking there.

Injury prone Lucie playing 5 tournaments in a row in a desperate attempt to who the hell knows what. :help:

It's a shame Lucie can't play a full schedule like the hoggers that surround her on the rankings. There's a chance she'd be ranked higher if she played more often, of course, and playing a somewhat limited schedule makes it harder to keep her momentum after a good tournament (not that she's having many of those as of late. :help: ) or to gather momentum at all.

And now Nicole withdrawing from Stuttgart and thus playing only two tournaments till the end of the season in a not so desperate attempt to piss me off. :rolleyes: :fiery: Well, hopefully it has nothing to do with her recovery from the mono. :unsure: :(

When I first read that Nicole had withdraw from Stuttgart, I thought her season was over. Either after effects of mono or Kodat's method to get Nicole to recover from her epic chokes by taking several weeks off. Which wouldn't make sense - the way to get one's mind away from past chokes is to take it in the chin and soldier on, to play the very next week if possible. What did Azarenka do after brainfarting away the Estoril Open title to a total scrub she should have routed 1 and 1?

Anyh00

Stuttgart TII, Zürich TI - maybe it's because of the additional TI points, since both fields are equally strong at the moment?

I guess she'll tank out of one of these tournaments if she does well the week before, and I don't think she'll play Québec either way. Nothing to gain, everything to lose at TIIIs.

Auckland tournament director mentions Nicole as one of the players he is trying to get to commit:

While most of the world's top players are beyond his reach, Palmer is still hopeful of securing a couple of big names for January's tournament. Russians Elena Dementieva and Dinara Safina are on his list, as is Czech Nicole Vaidisova, and Palmer says they will still have a quality field, with everyone ranked inside the top 100 in the world.

The cut off date for entries into the ASB Classic is November 19.

I would like to see Nicole start 2008 w/ a tournament rather than the Hong Kong exhibition (wasn't one of the first players announced). But not sure about her playing a Tier IV...

Vaidisova to play Gold Coast WTA event
13th November 2007, 11:48 WST

World No.12 Nicole Vaidisova has been confirmed as a starter for the 2008 Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts WTA event on the Gold Coast, starting next month.

The Czech teenager joins two-time Grand Slam champion and former world No.1 Amelie Mauresmo and Australia's No.1 player Samantha Stosur in the field for the December 30-January 5 tournament at the Royal Pines Resort.

Vaidisova reached the semi-finals of this year's Australian Open and the quarter-finals at the French Open and Wimbledon.

"I'm excited to be competing at the Mondial Australian Women's Hardcourts for the first time," Vaidisova said.

"The tournament has an excellent reputation among the players on the Sony Ericsson WTA Tour and the Gold Coast is an ideal place to start my 2008 season.

"I'm looking forward to training hard using the great facilities, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere at the tournament and to playing some tough matches, which will stand me in good stead for the Australian Open later in January."

I think it's fine to leave out Doha. At least she will have some rest before the american double. Note that if she played Doha it would be maybe too much tennis for her given that wrist injury which looks to be chronic. Nicole needs to be careful with her schedule and not overplay. She can still add Doha later if she wants to.
I agree about Eastbourne, that she should play I believe, or another grasscourt tourney before Wimbledon.

I read from my source that Nicole won't play any grass preparation, I hope I will get more info later.. I have couple of time but I think her schedule is very careful.. she could play Doha or other tournament coz there's one month off after Miami until Berlin :sad:

btw I read in some interview that this wrist injury from nothing wasn't anything special.. it was just preventive that Nicole retired.. like she said..

Lunaris
Dec 11th, 2007, 09:21 PM
I read two articles with Nicole saying she felt a small pain in wrist in Quebec and she mentioned that it was the same thing which troubled her during claycourt season, so I presume it may be a long-time injury. I didn't write it was something special, but she needs to be careful so that it doesn't become more serious. Though almost whole claycourt season missed due to it sounds quite seriously. :shrug:

With this kind of schedule, she's going to play 16 or 17 tournaments this year (we hope) which is very good.I like this schedule.She has the time to add her name in the Eastbourne's entry list if she feels the need to play some matchs before Wimbledon.She won't play in Paris, but that was expected as she will probably be too tired after the fed cup but Dubai is a good choice.
