Welcome to OWTT's first Grand Slam. The first two weeks on tour have been really exciting in the lead-up to the season's first Slam. The favourites for the title include Gisela Dulko, Nicole Vaidisova and Serena Williams. But with all the girls training hard and wanting it so much, anyone could walk away with the trophy. As for doubles, Schnyder/Ivanovic and Sharapova/Stosur have clearly established themselves as the top 2 pairs. Will Ivanovic/Schnyder make it a clean Aussie sweep or can someone stop them? Let's check out the draws...

Venus Ready For First Grand Slam

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/3502/Venus5.jpg

After a strong start to the season in OWTT, Venus Williams says that she is ready to give all she has to do well at the first grand slam of the year.

"All I can say is that I am ready. Ready to play here in Australia. I had a tough first round exit at my last event, but I'm so over that and ready to play some good tennis here in Melbourne."

Can I ask why Wildcards are being put into the Round of 32 when people who played last week are being put in the Round of 64?

Surely the newest players, being the lowest ranked, should get those spots.

champion88
Mar 30th, 2008, 06:17 PM
I do get your point, but I just put the seeded players in then everyone else at random - thought was the fairest and easiest way? Plus, would still need 4 players from last week to play R64 as well.

Vamos.
Mar 30th, 2008, 07:30 PM
Ye, I know some would still have to play and maybe that could've been random. Which of the last weeks players play the Round of 64.

I don't know...it just seems weird to see a Wildcard in the Round of 32 while we are in the Round of 64. :shrug:

No big deal, though. :kiss:

Sharapova gets ready for AO

http://img141.imagevenue.com/loc190/th_60825_9thJan_AO2008_yeneeMaldita_MSP05_122_190l o.jpghttp://img223.imagevenue.com/loc423/th_60824_9thJan_AO2008_yeneeMaldita_MSP04_122_423l o.jpg

Sharapova wasted no time after arriving in Melbourne, getting on court straight away. She sayd that she wants to be ready for the tournament, as she didn't do so well last week. She got a bye from the round of 64 and will meet her opponent from last week Martina Muller, in the round of 32. In the round of 16, she will either face, Mary Pierce or Elena Dementieva, the number 6 seed. In the Quarterfinals, she could meet, new number 1 Gisela Dulko or the number 7 seed Caroline Wozniacki. Rounding off the top half is number 7 seed, Ana Ivanovic, number 16 seed, Rezai, number 14 seed, Radwanska, and last week's finalist, Nicole Vaidisova, the number 3 seed.

The bottom half consists of former world number 1, Tatiana Golovin, Jennifer Capriati, the number 13 seed who got off a great week last week and Agnes Szavay, the number 4 seed.

In the doubles, she again, paired up with Samantha Stosur, and hoping that their losing streak against the number 1 team, Ana Ivanovic and Patty Schnyder will end this week.

Australian Open is shaping up to be a good event and will promise some good matches, so stay tuned.

MOORE...''DULKO BEWARE''

http://www.itftennis.com/shared/medialibrary/image/gallery/IO_26463_gallery.JPG

Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - 17 year old hometown hero Jessica Moore will be out to claim the biggest win of her career on Rod Laver Arena in the second round of the Australian Open. Moore, who last week lost to Gisela Dulko, is very motivated to reverse that result here this week.

'Last week I learnt that I have the game to match it with the top players in the world. I'm strong and powerful, athletic and motivated. These are qualities that trouble the very best of opponents, and I can't wait to get back out on court for the Aussie Open against Dulko.
I will have the support of 15 000 Aussie fans and I am hoping the home advantage will get me over the line. Dulko can be assured that I am now rid of my nerves and will be as fearless as ever. She had better bring her A-Game or she can kiss that No.1 ranking good bye...Dulko beware!!'

Commentators and coaches alike are singing the praises of the saviour of Australian women's tennis. 'I think she has a great game. She's young, determined and very motivated. The Aussies should be real excited,' was one comment from all-time great Martina Navratilova.
Moore's coach, David Taylor says, 'She has been ready for this moment all her life. She is the most dedicated person I know and will definitely cause Dulko some difficulty. There is no way Dulko will be able to play as defensively as she did in Sydney. Jess will kill her. Dulko really needs to come out and play Jess on her terms to avoid a humiliation not seen since Jelena Dokic ambushed Martina Hingis at Wimbledon in 1999.'

So the stage is set for one of the most highly anticipated encounters of Australian Open 2008, the only question remains, can Dulko make it a match worth remembering?

At Melbourne, I am definitely a different player than last week, I have been training so damn hard to fulfill my goal, which is #1 player on tour, watch me! Coming to my 1st ever Grand Slam tournament, I don't have anything to lose, I just have to go out there and play my best!

Serena's so negative!

http://i301.photobucket.com/albums/nn53/tennis_092/Serena.jpg?t=1207002540
Serena training this afternoon

Coming in this first Grand Slam of the year, everybody could think Serena Williams would be gald and anxious but she isn't. After a very slow start this year, losing her two matches in doubles and having as best result, a quarterfinal is dissapointing. She gave us an interview to talk about the upcoming week and the Australian Open.

Q: How are you feeling Serena?
S: Just okay. I have trained hard today, I'm not really feeling my shots. I'm a bit worried

Q: Are you expectations big for the Australian Open?
S: Not really, the way I've been playing since the beginning of the year, nobody expects me to make it far. I'd like to prove them wrong, but it's not likely to happen if I don't start playing better soon.

Q: You still are seed number 7, don't you think you're a favorite here?
S: No. The favorites here are the ones who were able to string 4 and 5 victories in a row, I didn't do that at all.

Q: What do you think about your first round opponent?
S: Nadia Petrova, a new player. That's a little scary! She's a new girl and she wants to make a big upset, I guess. I'm not so confident, I think it's a dangerous match.

Q: Any predictions for this first round match?
S: If it goes in three sets I'll win if I lose the first, I think I'll go down in two.

Q: How do you explain these bad results with Aravane in doubles?
S: We are just not playing well. We are not serving well, volleying badly and returning badly. We quite sucked since the beginning of the season.

Q: You'll play against Sharapova and Stosur in doubles, do you believe in your chances?
S: I'd like too, but we don't play well till here and these two girls are liked by the fans and the tour director so the referee will probably be corrupted (:lol: j/k) so I think our chances are slim.

Thanks for taking time to talk to us Serena
You're welcome

DAVENPORT DEF. MAURESMO
0-6 7-5 6-0

After a disastrous start, Davenport really seemed to find her range. Mauresmo seemed deflated after losing that tight second second set, and Linds took full advantage as she raced through the third set to claim her place in the R32

Melbourne Marvels Moore's Magic

Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - How many 17 year olds do you know that are capable of taking on the world's best - and winning? How many 17 year olds do you know that are capable of composing themselves enough to play in front of a packed Rod Laver Arena, before a television audience of millions? 17 year old Jessica Moore from Perth today had her moment in the sun.

http://www.tennis.com.au/pages/image.aspx?assetid=RDM39477.7385218519

Taking on World No.1, Gisela Dulko, Moore was completely outplayed in the first set. The pre-match hype and hysteria seemed to dimish. Dulko's neat and tidy groundstrokes were her most fearsome weapon. The Argentine, who beat Moore in the 1st Rd at Sydney last week, pushed her younger and less experienced opponent around the court. Dulko took the set 6-0 in just 28 minutes.

After a bathroom break, Moore seemed to get a second wind as she came out firing in the second set. Her first serve was amazing, her backhand breathtaking and her forehand was just simply unbelievable. She ran Dulko all over the court, denying the World No.1 the chance to use her eloquent down the line backhand. In a 33 minute display of brute force, Moore snatched the set 6-0. After claiming the set, she clenched her fist to her support crew and the crowd gave her a standing ovation.

And so the scene was set for a nailbiting finish. Dulko gained the early accendancy, taking advantage of some unforced errors -from a rapidly tiring Moore. But when leading 3-0 Dulko got the wobbles and threw in some uncharacteristic double faults and projected forehands into the back fence. Moore used this and levelled at 3-3 before Dulko regained her confidence and set up a 5-3 led.

With one more role of the dice, Moore played some standout tennis, worthy of her own Kia Hotshots segment, and once more levelled the scores. However, by this time, Moore was a spent force. Not even the crowds fervent support for her opponent could stop Dulko from clinching the decider 7-5 in 68 minutes. It was the highest quality encounter of the tournament so far.

http://www.tennis.com.au/pages/image.aspx?assetid=RDM39479.0939341782

After the match, a gracious Moore acknowledged Dulko's superior consistency and court craft. ''She just played an awesome match. She had an answer for me ever time I took it to her. It just goes to show what a great champion she is and she is definitely the favourite for the championship.''

Dulko responded saying Moore had ''obvious potential'' and that she would be a ''long term threat.''

So whilst Moore's singles campaign has come to an end, she still has the women's doubles event left on her schedule...Make sure you get out there and give her a hand!

Sharapova Mauled Muller to Round of 16

Maria Sharapova has once again defeated Martina Muller in her first match in Melbourne.

The first two games of the first set were holds, 1-1. And then it was trades of breaks as both players were shaky on serve until 3-3 when Sharapova held again to love, to lead 4-3. Sharapova then broke again to lead 5-3 but Muller saved two set points and broke to get the set back on serve 5-4. Sharapova, determined to take the set, broke to love and took the set 6-4 when Muller netted a backhand.

Both players were better in the second set with their serves as both held serve until 6-6 and it went into a tiebreak.

Muller had the early advantage, and had 3 set points at 6-3. But Sharapova denied and didn't want to go to a third set, she took the next 5 points and won the tiebreak and the match, 6-4 7-6(6), when she hit a forehand winner. She will now face a fellow Russian, Elena Dementieva who is the number 6 seed this week.

Sharapova interview

A good match, beating her for the second time.
Yeh, you know, it was okay, I mean, the first set, my serves were really shaky, but stepped it up in the service department in that second set, but so did she, so no breaks. :D

Describe your performance last week.
It was an alright week, I didn't do so well in the singles but did good in the doubles, making it to the finals.

Yeh, you lost to Ivanovic and Schnyder again.
Yeh, again. Thanks for rubbing it in *laughter*. No, it's alright, Sam and I have talked about that, and I think it's about time we get revenge, I mean, I don't like losing to people twice in a row, and I'm determined not to make it 3 in a row. *laughter*

Are you going to focus on the doubles or the singles for now?
Ohh well, I'm not focusing on just one, I mean, I want to do well in both you know, so I will do my best in both. I mean, it's kind of mean if I focus on singles, and not doubles, because you're letting your teammate down, and if you focus on doubles, you're letting yourself down. So I want to do well in both, yeh.

What are your expectations this week?
I want to do well. I would be happy with a semifinals in singles. But, it's going to be hard you know. There's Dulko, who is number 1 and she has nearly dominated. So hopefully she loses before quarters, no hard feelings *laughter*. I want to do really good in doubles also, I would be happy with another finals but if it's the finals I don't want to lose to Ivanovic and Schnyder again, you know.

But I want to win. That's what I came here to do.. I came here to win.

Next up is Dementieva.
Yeh

What do you know about her, and what do you expect the outcome will be?
She's another Russian. I hope I will win, but you can never know, I mean, she's the number 6 seed, so she must be good you know. *laughter*

Good luck in the next round Maria
Thank you!

The CT didn't affect the outcome. It looked like Hantuchova believed she could cause the upset after winning the second so easily, but Dulko showed just why she is the top seed here as she demolished Hantuchova in the last set to take her win streak to 7 matches. Can she be stopped?

Really exciting match between these two. The first 2 sets saw some amazing tennis being played, but it was Dementieva who grabed the early lead in the decider, which proved to be crucial. I like that Sharapova tried to change things up this week though, even if it didn't do her as well as she would have hoped.

Serena succesful on Day 1!

http://img181.imageshack.us/img181/5145/serenanadiasmallmf6.jpg
Serena Williams won her single and doubles first round matches today.

Today, Serena Williams played Nadia Petrova, from Russia, in single and partnering Aravane Rezaļ in doubles, she had to face Lindsay Davenport and Dominika Cibulkova.

Her singles match

Nadia Petrova started off her first set against Reena really strongly. She was hitting with a lot of pace and was making all the shots she needed to at the right moment. Wlliams went down 0-5. But when it came to closing out the first set, Petrova got nervous, after giving some games to Serena, her mental went down she got angry and nothing could stop Reena from coming back. Petrova choked the set away, she lost 7 games in a row. Serena Williams won the first set 7-5.

Everybody thought Serena Williams was going to kill Petrova in the second set, she had the momentum on her side, but her whole game let ehr down in the second set. Petrova thrashed Serena away and tied the match, bagelling her 6-0.

But everybody knows that when it comes down to a three setter, Serena is always the heavy favorite to win. The two girls played well in the beginning of the final set, going to 2-2, but Serena overpowered Petrova in the end of this match to take the set and the match 7-5 0-6 6-2.

It also went well in doubles

Serena Williams and Aravane Rezaļ played badly since the beginning of the season, but today things turned out a lot better. The four girls on court fought really hard to win this match.

In the first set, Wiliams's team battled back after going down 1-4. Rezaļ and Williams took off some pressure of their shoulders and started playing high quality tennis. The won the set 6-4.

Second set wasn't tight for two seconds. There maybe were two or three great ralllies, but these were exceptions. Davenport and Cibulkova outplayed their oponnents to take the set 6-2.

The third set was really tight! Rezai and Williams led during almost the whole set, with Venus cheering loudly for her sister in the crowd, Serena motivated her partner to play her best tennis. Davenport and Cibulkova could do nothing in front of this time on fire. Rezai closed out the match with an ace. Final result was 6-4 2-6 7-5.

Golovin safely through to R16

Tatiana Golovin made a winning start to her Australian Open campaign as she downed Maria Emilia Salerni of Argentina.The second seed started powerful as she won the first set by 6:1 and was in control for most of the second set as she raced to a 5:1 lead.But after that her game fell apart and Salerni took her chances to level the match by winning the second set.The angry Frenchwoman stormed to a 5:0 lead in the decisive set and there was no comeback this time for the Argentinian.Tatiana Golovin won the match by 6:1,6:7(5),6:2.

Interview with Tatiana Golovin

Congratulations, Tatiana.A tough match, right?
"Yeah, but it was my fault.I made it tough.You know I was in control of the match and kinda let it slip, but whatever, I won.I'm still pissed about that 5:1 lead...I mean how on earth did I manage to lose that set.Just some stupid errors and the set was over."

Talk about that second set a bit.
"Nothing more to say, really.I mean I think it was a good thing actually.I was awful in Sydney and I need to play tough matches, so yeah I see this as a good start."

Who do you think are favorites to win the title?
"Tatiana Golovin (laugh).Yeah, Tatiana is great."

How about Nicole Vaidisova?
"Who?"

Nicole Vaidisova, the tennis player?
"Don't know her, sorry."

She said she is the real queen of OWTT?
"She said that(laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh, laugh...)Oh my god...Okaaaay, then...Sure.Sugar, everybody, and I mean E-V-E-R-Y-B-O-D-Y knows Tatiana Golovin is the real deal.I don't know who this Nicole Tramposova is, but she's got some nerve saying she's the queen.Bitch, go away."

Vaidisova, not Tramposova.
"Yeah, whatever."

You really don't know who she is?
"Honestly I've never heard of her."

So, next question...
"No, no.That's all for now.I'm a busy woman, I can't answer your stupid questions whole day long.Get it together, okay!Have fun, you guys, I love you.Bye.Oh and tell Tramposova I said hi."

Vaidisova Off to Winning Start
http://farm1.static.flickr.com/173/363345285_22a371318c.jpg

Vaidisova has continued her recent form and played brilliantly to reach this years Australian quarter finals. Vaidisova was faced with a big task in facing the great defender Shahar Peer but Nicole remained calm and played within her self. Usually her forehand if her biggest weapon but on today it was her backhand down the line that clinched the victory for her 2-6,6-0,6-4. Nicole is hopeful that she can once again produce some great tennis on tomorrow to defeat Ivanovic and reach her first grand slam semi final.

Moore & Vaidisova Crave Doubles Title

After a strong opening match at Sydney last week Vaidisova and Moore lost a very tight match to the number two seeds. Today they continued their strong play and hope to make a quarter final appearance and exact their revenge on Sharapova and Stosur. Moore who fell to Dulko in singles says that she intends to give it everything she has in doubles now that she is out of singles. Vaidisova is looking like the player to beat this tournament and would love to win titles in both singles and doubles and feels like she has the game to elevate herself to the top of the rankings.

What a fantastic match between these two! :worship: Tense the whole way through, but Golovin sneaks it in the third. She could have closed it out in straights though at a set and 5-3 up, but she chocked as normal. before fighting back strongly in the decider. Tati is showing the type of form that took her to the title in Gold Coast a couple of weeks ago. She is gonna be tough to stop!
