with tati missing out on the 16th seed, there was no way she could get a "good" draw.

out of the 9-16 seeds, anna c isn't a bad option and i think tati matches up with her well. hope jelena gets upset early. and glad she entered AI. :)

you didn't have to watch her play myskina at miami last year. i thought that girl was on the verge of tears for the entire match, turns out her face is just like that. :armed:

I hate this draw. Tati and Anna C are two of my 4 favorite players in the draw and they will face each other after only one match.

Couldn't have been a worse draw for me personally.

I can't see Tati winning more than two matches here myself. If she were to face Jankovic in the third her backhand will get destroyed.

Chakvetadze did a poor match at the USo and since the USO she's won tierI + other tournaments, AO QF.. She's playin 100 times better than last year so Tati'll have too make a great match ! But for now good luck in your 2nd round..

Am I the only who thought the draw is not as tough as people were saying? She doesn't face any hard hitters until QF. Tati likes to play her type of player. Unless a major choking ensues like AO, she should be safe against Chaky. I'm more worried of Jankovic actually. And if she ever wants to be a top 10 player, she should start beating them.

You're not the only one ;) .
Actually, I'm not really worried about her draw because all top players are here. She doesn't get the best draw, not the worst either. Even though Anna could face Tatiana quite early, but that seems right, from then on third round, many top players will be in trouble I guess. So there is no reason to worry ;) .
Hopefully she won't suck :scared: .

I totally agree with you. Moreover, this will give her some more confidence. She will need it against Chakvetadze.

By the way, we can say that she defeated the curse which has been on her since the tie-break choke of last year against Dulko. She was leading 5-0 and finally lost it (and the match). The contrary happened today :)

I hope she thinks positively as regards this match.

Next is as predicted Chakvetadze. She is in great form, as she won 61 60. Bardina is a poor player of course but so was Poutchek.

Will Tati be totally concentrated and determinated till the end or will she be unconfident and in difficulty to handle Anna's consistency ??

Tati had so many chances in the second set, she should have taken the match to a 3rd. her numbers on serve were shit, what happened to the Tati of last fall that wouldn't get broken?

well, that sucks. the loss isn't a surprise but i'm more concerned with the way she's playing in her last 3 matches: 2 blowouts and a near choke. and i actually thought she started the year decently too. hoping tati can pick up her game in the next several weeks.

Yes, that's definitely a good thing that they won. Her serve has even been better in this match and Tati needs to improve her net game. I hope she can enjoy the tournament now, playing doubles with her best friend. They should continue this partnership, I really think this is a good team.:)

I was that pissed that I did not check the board after Tati lost for two days :tape:! I wouldnt mind if she lost with a decent scoreline but she was basically raped by Chaky that day despite she had many chance to get ahead. It still showed her mental toughness = :weirdo:, her serve = :help: and her passiveness = ":yawn:. I was looking forward for her comment after losing, but I guess we should wait until Tatiana World thingy.

Working with Goven is good but how can the coach help if she doesn't work with them full time? But I guess I should be happy that at least that she starts to work with a coach.

Good luck in doubles. Dina has said that she's not playing double full time this seaosn so I guess we could expect them pairing up again in Grand Slam!

I was looking forward for her comment after losing, but I guess we should wait until Tatiana World

She said a few things on Léquipe

i was at tati's horribleness. also know as her match vs chakvetadze.

she SUCKED. from the first point. she couldn't get a forehand to go in the court. her backhand and serve weren't working either. anna played pretty well to go up 3-0 in the first set, but after that she just played average. i was so pissed at tati that i left halfway through the second set. she was a total mess.

Propos d'après match: "Je suis déçue car d'habitude je me sens bien ici. Mais je fais beaucoup de fautes en coup droit, je me déconcentre, je sers mal, même si le vent était gênant. Je rate des occasions. Bref c'est frustrant"

"I'm disappointed because usually i feel good here. But i'm making many UEs with my forehand, i tank, i serve badly, even if the wind was a problem. I miss opportunities.. That's frustrating." (eurosport)

"I'm really disappointed because i like playin here. But today i made many mistakes with my FH which is usually my strength. I hit UEs in every part of the court. But (fortunately) Georges and Loic are there. Loic's gonna coach me during a week at home and then, i'll play AI and Charleston on American clay" (Scan Léquipe)

That's finished
4-6 3-6 :sad: :(
Tati was serving at 3-1 in the 2nd and lost her serve and then they didn't win a game anymore :(

Yes, a bad 2nd set...:fiery:

But I think the doubles with Dinara was good for her self confidence.;)

So let's focus on her next tournament: Amelia Island

Interesting report from Linniepoo.

Just a quick report from Key Biscayne:

We were watching Tati's match today against Chaky when my good friend moon (from the board) decided to take a bathroom break. As she was waiting to get back into the court, she saw Loic also waiting to get in. She struck up a conversation with him (he was surprised she recognized him!). She asked how Amelie was doing, and he said (with a big smile) that she was doing fine and recovering well. He said that her next tournament would be Berlin, but she could come back for Warsaw :) As a matter of fact, the entire French Federation was watching this match right behind me - Dr. Gilles Daubenet (sp.?) (why isn't he taking care of Momo? :p) Loic, Tati's coach, Jerome Bianchi, Guy Forget (he moved down during the match and sat next to me :hearts:, along with Loic) and even Richard Gasquet (he's a cutie pie!) made an appearance for a couple of games.

Awww, the whole French Fed were watching the appalling match. No wonder Tati tanked. And Richie was watching Tati? :hearts:
