Good luck Tatiana, it won't be easy ... Hope you stay healthy first like everybody hears. No need for more dramas this year!

Too bad that she has to face Sorana in the first round :(. It may be tricky, but Tati & her experience should prevail in two sets.

Tati already played last year with Dechy in Luxembourg and they faced N°1 Seed on first round and won... and then they made it through the semis...

But Please Tati focus on Single this year, last year' loss against Hantuchova on first round was :smash:

Yep! But Sorana is not yet Daniela ;). Of course, it's a tricky first round, but Tatiana should really win that without much trouble at least for this year. After, it's another question. ^^

yep. Im not gonna be lookin further down the draw but i hope she can keep on building up her form and confidence and get a couple of wins in this tournaments. Then, if that happens, she could play Ana. I hope the fact that Ana hasnt played fore like 3 weeks and she was outclassed by venus works in tati's favour. Tati has nothing to lose in this tournament and i don't think it's a terrible draw. Allez.

Allez tati! They cut the tennis fo about 8 mins to show some stupid football show so i went away. When i came back, it was 5-1. That last game was AMAZING. 2 Spectacular foehand winners in a row followed by 2 aces in row. Including a second seve ace. In the first set, I felt she wasn't being as aggresive enough as she has been since Toronto but then she got it going at the end and it was great. Will have to keep it up if she wants to been Ivanovic though. :D ALLEZ TATI!

Yes, Tati is a different player now and she will be able to rely on her serve which gave her many free points. If Ana is a bit rusty at the beginning like on Wednesday, Tatiana may be confident enough to keep her under pressure all the way!

She was not injured at all. She was scared of playing Ivanovic and thus her error fest today.

What I don't like about Tati it's that sometimes it looks as if she don't care about the result. She played a poor match and while shaking hands with Ana she was all smiles. She lacks attitude.

i was just joking about her being injured but she has been playing well before today and whenever she plays well, she gets injured. If she can go from now til wimbledon without getting injured badly, that will be better than winning a slam. :drool:

Anyway. She better pick it up next week. There are always gonna be setbacks but she has to bounce back. Hopefully she can go one further than last year at sttutgart. Quite unrealistic, i know but one can dream. :drool:. If Szavay overtakes her soon, i'll be upset.

so the tennis channel here in the US finally aired Tati's episode of Center Court with Chris Myers. Its just a half hour interview with players, but they have been advertising her episode for about a year now and this is the first time that i saw it being aired. nothing too interesting to report from the interview, it was from the end of the 2004 season or early 2005 i think because they really only spoke of her 2004 season. started off with the basics of moving to france from russia, Tati loves playing for france and isn't russian, moves to the USA, loves fashion, her forehand and serve are her weapons, etc etc. she said after tennis she would maybe be interested in fashion, setting up an organization to help animals, or go into acting. :tape:

she was also asked if she was in charge of tennis what would she change, and she said "work hard, party hard!" :lol: i would have recorded it if i knew how to and if the tennis channel would actually follow whats on her program listing. i just got lucky and turned on the TV and there Tati was. it didn't give any new information on it but it was a nice interview with her and she looked good and seemed pretty relaxed.

Now I hope she wins, first because I can't stand Anna and then because she really needs a good win over a top 10 player.

Allez Tati, congrats for today!

Tatiana :bowdown:, great fight!
She played so wisely from *5/2 till the end taking advantage of Anna's mistakes. I had to impression of seeing again the Tati of Masha's match in the US Open putting the ball just right where it has to be. After in the second set, she started to serve extremely well and kept the ball in play to make Anna miss. It was easier as Chak lost belief very quickly.

Great performance as the finalist of last year, it's a very convincing win, against a rival all the more so! ;)
Allez in QF! :banana:


Forgot to say that Tatiana has delivered some stunning dropshots. Simply amazing!!!

Slutiana
Oct 3rd, 2007, 05:34 PM
Allez Tati!

She was just solid from the start. Didn't need to start playing big babe tennis. She knew that Chakvetadze was gonna be making mistakes and so thats all she needed to do. I came at 4-5 and she hit some really amazing dropshots nd bhand passes :eek: from what i saw, her bhand is solid again and she was hitting crosscourt more. It still isn't as good as USO 06 vs Sharapova (her bhand was really good then) but it's getting better and she didn't need to do muhc. Moving well. She needs to either be more aggresive against Ana or just be as solid as today and jam everything deep to the bhand. Same with patty.

10th or 11th top 10 win? Allez tati!

Actually, this is the 3rd top 5 victory for Tatiana :D. I forgot that the rankings in Stuttgart are based on last week's, this is why Anna is the 4th seed and not Ana.

So, well done once again Tatiana! :hug:

It will be tough against Ivanovic in the QF, her performance today against Patty was too good. But Tatiana knows how to adapt her game, she did so well tactically against Chakvetadze that she will surely find a solution to deal with Ana's powerful shots.
I hope it won't be the repeat of last week's disaster. I am worried, but I believe in Tati ;).

Slutiana
Oct 3rd, 2007, 08:12 PM
Yes, tats is very good at changing her game up. Shes gonna have to get the first strike in and use angles and place the ball well. If she does, she will win. If she doesn't, she'll have t hope that ivanovic will play terribly and just act as a wall.

Oct 4th, 2007, 09:52 AM
just watched most of the match and it was nice to see tati play so solid and not be afraid of changing things up. as the match went on, you could sense that anna was getting more desperate but tati didn't let up the whole match. even the beginning of the 1st set was tighter than the 2-5 score.

it's going to be tough against ana though. i think playing her indoors is already a big disadvantage for tati. but tati seems to like this court. and maybe she can keep her serving up for one more round!

Very solid play from Tati with some nice winners at the right moment. She could have been more aggressive being up 63 42, but she explained that this match was tough for her due to tiredness. So, it's good to win in straight sets for her :yeah:, I am particularly glad at the fact that she could rely on her serve all match long, it gave her so many free points!

She has definitely her chances against Kuznetsova or Serena, especially if she faces the Russian ... but she will have take a bit more risks ;). Give your best, Tati!! :hearts: Congrats!!

Tati lost 26 62 61 in the Stuttgart final. So close, but so far. :hug:

She played immense in the first set, blowing Justine off the court with FH's.

It's a shame she couldn't keep it up, but very positive performance against the worlds best.

Tatiana lost 6-2 2-6 1-6 but that's okay!

This was such a wonderful week for her! 2 great wins against 2 top ten players and she took such a wonderful set off against the world's #1 and really took it to her!

All of your fans are proud Tati! I'm sad she didn't get the Porsche, but there is always next year!

Rest up now Tati because you deserve it! :hug::sad:

really good tournament for tati. Unlucky to win but considering what justine did at USO, the outcome was inevitable. Oh well. FOr once im not really upset. If she plays like this during her last tournies, she should end the year top 15. I think thats realistic. Allez tati!

Damn, Tati should have entered Kremlin cup. If she played the way she played this week, she could have won it or at least got to the final with a good draw. Keeping her YEC hopes alive. :lol: :tape:

Yay Tati.
You won a set. You took a set from Justine since Wimbledon.
You reached a final. You beat two top 10 players.
Now if you get injured at Zurich, I'd flatten your already flat ass.

Tati played brilliant 2day, I thought she was going to win it with how sh way playing in the 1st set, she was awesome. But Justine was just too much for her in the end.
But what a week for her :D
Keep it up Tati

Her record in the fall so far is 11-2. Not bad. She has the best record in the top 30 Others worth mentioning are - Jankovic is 7- 2 Hantuchova is 9-4 Venus is 9-1, Ivanovic is 5-1 Szavay is 7-1 Kirilenko 9-2

Shes second in the top 50 to Razzano who is 10-0 (however, she's played a tier 3 and 4 with only compared to tati's 2 tier 2s and a tier 4)

Don't know what to think of this draw. Surely not a bad one considering the quality of the field, but this first match against Kirilenko reminds me bad memories... It won't be easy, I don't like when Tati faces players of her generation. Then Sharapova, it would be the ideal moment to beat her.

Tati is on the same quarter with Ana and Maria who owed her on H2H :o

CMR
Oct 13th, 2007, 04:49 PM
I think Tati will beat both Maria's in the first two rounds. Therefore she could get 110 points. And she has to drop off 42 points from last year.
I hope that someone beats Ana Ivanovic before she will face Tati. But if Tati will defeat Ana, she can win the tournament. Her one and only win over Ivanovic was at Amelia Island. :bounce:

lucky to get a WC opponent in the 1st round since it could have been tougher.

would be nice if tati can improve on last year's performance but it won't be easy. and getting some points here would really help in finishing top 15.

nope. Its less than that: remember the points were increased this year.

Anyways, i think tati could make the quarters-final again. Its nearly exactly the same projected draw as stuttgart again with the exeption of the tough 1r and pova

remember, Stuttgart was:

1r Muller
2r Chakvetadze
QF Ivanovic
SF Serena/Kuzzy
F Henin/Jankovic

This one is:

1r Kirilenko
2r Sharapova
QF Ivanovic
SF Serena/Kuzzy
F Henin/Jankovic

Anyway, i believe if she plays as wel as last week she can definatly make at least the QF. Her first 2 opponents havent been playing well lately and have lost to players much worse than tati so there's definatly a chance. Allez tati.

CMR
Oct 13th, 2007, 07:35 PM
nope. Its less than that: remember the points were increased this year.

Tati got the 42 points for the second round loss last year. This year a player will get 60 points for a second round loss in a Tier 1 event with 1.340.000 Dollars.

A little calculation about the points distrubution on the next monday. I hope it would be right. We will see it on monday.
10th Bartoli 1992
11th Petrova 1976
12th Mauresmo 1921
13th Dementieva 1892 (or 2022 if she wins tomorrow, which means 10th place)
14th Safina 1859
15th Vaidisova 1710
16th Peer 1687
17th Schnyder 1679
18th Tati 1624

No danger from players who are behind Tati. But she has to play a good tournament next week to gain some positions.

Oct 13th, 2007, 07:46 PM
Kirilenko is a good 1st round. Amélie was seeded and got Bartoli, same for Hantuchova/Safina, Venus/Schnyder..
So I hope she can take her revenge and then give Maria what she deserves ;)

Dayum. Maria withdraws from zurich and now ana goes into maria's position. Its bad. Very bad. But theres two ways to look at it: 1) tati's screwed. 2) Ana wont have warmup match and coupled with tati's great form, maybe it's better. :shrug:
