Good start. That's Nadia's first clay match of the year

Nice win, Nadia. Now keep it going all the way to the title! :banana:

Apr 3rd, 2007, 07:25 PM
Nice first match :yeah:
Zheng should be a good test for her. I really hope she can find her last year form on clay and ... finally win Roland-Garros ! I loved her so much when she was the 1st Russian player :p

Apr 4th, 2007, 05:45 PM
The last match with Zheng in Berlin was qite difficult, i hope the next one'll be much easier :)

Nadia Petrova (RUS)\Lisa Raymond (USA) d. Vania King (USA)\Tiantian Sun (CHN) 6-2 6-1 just in 58 min :bounce:

Apr 4th, 2007, 06:22 PM
Na Li is already out, so her chances become probalbly bigger and bigger ;)

Apr 5th, 2007, 06:06 PM
Nadia quickly disposed of Zheng 6-2, 6-3. :hearts:

She will be facing Safina in the quarters.

Apr 5th, 2007, 08:14 PM

Apr 7th, 2007, 04:42 PM
If Nadia wins these next 2 matches, it will be her first title defense.

Apr 8th, 2007, 01:07 AM
Nadia is into the final after defeating Bammer 7-6, 6-1! Nice job Nadia! She now faces Golovin!

Apr 8th, 2007, 03:00 AM
Congrats in reaching your second consecutive Amelia Island final. I believe that you can beat Golovin, I just hope you believe it too.

Good luck tomorrow, babe!

Apr 8th, 2007, 08:07 PM
Golovin def Nadia 6-2 6-1:tape: :help: :sad:

I know, that was totally embarrassing. :(

Apr 8th, 2007, 08:48 PM
:help:what's the H2H 5-1? Nadia really has a problem with tatiana.:help:anyways it was a great tournament!

Apr 9th, 2007, 09:49 AM
Yeah, but she really didn't play well in the final. She lost her service six times :sad:

"It wasn't a really nice match for me today; I just wasn't sharp enough," said Petrova, who was trying to defend a title for the very first time. "I was just a split second late to get to the balls and didn't have my concentration. She played solid, though; she doesn't have weaknesses. It's about time she won her first title!"

Apr 9th, 2007, 07:12 PM
Nadia has done that before. An awful performance in a big match. At least she gets some points. She has a lot coming off through Berlin, then she can move up the rankings.

Apr 10th, 2007, 07:32 PM
If Nadia won, it would have been 3 straight green clay titles, 15 matches in a row.
