i actually feel pretty good about my chances to get to the quarters. if i make it there hopefully golovin will choke again and i can get another shot at dulko. i hate my first opponent though. i want venus t start winning matches and shes been slumping since gold coast.

Venus Readies For France

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/505/74808410MT231_The_Champions062613_1024x768.jpg

After two consecutive first round losses, one would think that Venus Williams would be down on herself; but that couldn't be further from the truth. She is confident that she can turn things around for herself and improve her ranking during the remainder of the season.

"I'm not happy about the way I've been playing," said a realistic Williams. "I mean, who would be. But do I still think I'm a good player, yes. Do I think I can make an impact on tour, sure! It's all up to me and I plan on staying active and evaluting my opponents game, so that I can come out on top.

I hope to do well here in Paris, and if I don't; then hey, back to the drawing board. I'm ready to play and ready to win!!!"

Apr 5th, 2008, 12:30 PM
Time is up- only received new points from 6 players :fiery: - when you keep losing first round, it means you should send new ones in otherwise you are not gonna get anywhere.

Players who have not sent new points since Week 1, and there are several, will be retired next week if I don't get new ones.

Wow- really exciting match to kick of this event in Paris. Olaru was SO close to winning this it is unbelievable- just a point here and there. But, Muller played a good match and came through on the big points and she scores her first win in OWTT, and now moves on to face AO champ Cibulkova in the R32.

Hingis just crushed Pierce in those last 2 sets. Pierce really has to find a new gameplan - it didn't work last week, so that's probably why it didn't this week either :rolleyes:

MOORE DEF. PETROVA
0-6 6-1 6-3

Moore came back nicely after that first set embarrassment, and fought well from 0-3 in the third. Neither player changed points though, so no sympathy for Petrova, and this could hurt Jess in her future matches in the event.

Apr 5th, 2008, 02:27 PM
erm why do you do all macthes with livescores??:)

so that players cane exactly which games they won/lost so they can improve/amend their strategies accordingly. Doesn't help if I see I lost 7-6 3-6 6-4 if I don't know which games to beef up on.

I can do just picture scores if you want, but thought this was better?

i think pic scoring till the qfs and live scoring matches after that is better..
it makes it easier to find matches and it will also save time for you:)

you know many people will lose interest as the game progresses..this happens in every game.. it would be useless live-scoring their matches...

its just my opinion..;)

well if I continue to only get 6 people sending new points per week it will not be worth me even running the game at all. I think this can be a great game - it just needs commitment from you guys- it takes a few minutes to send points, and then I do the rest of the work.

I think it's good if you do livescores after quarterfinal.

champion88, I love the way you have run this game so far. It's fast and I love the livescoring. I don't get why people are complaining about it. :shrug: It's much better than picture scoring because we can all see which areas we can improve on.

Please re-consider the picture scoring idea.

That's what I thought- it really doesn't take me that long.

How about I do picture-scoring up to QF, and people can PM if they want their game-by-game score which I can send to them?

Well,no one complains about livescores.:shrug:
It's just depends on him(champion88) whether to make it easier for him to make results.That's all.:shrug:
If he's ok with it,then everything is fine.

Had Cibulkova won the CT in the 2nd set, there would have been another 2 CTs in that set which would have seen Cibulkova take the match on a tie-break, and she would have gone on to take the title - so a real tough break for her. But, Dementieva moves on to her second straight semi and will be hoping for better fortune than last week's 6-0 6-0 drubbing!

(5)DEMENTIEVA DEF. (1)CIBULKOVA
3-6 6-4 6-4

:eek: Dementieva takes out the Aussie Open champ in a very tight match. Had Cibulkova won the CT in the 2nd set, there would have been another 2 CTs in that set which would have seen Cibulkova take the match on a tie-break, and she would have gone on to take the title - so a real tough break for her. But, Dementieva moves on to her second straight semi and will be hoping for better fortune than last week's 6-0 6-0 drubbing!

I don't think it's a surprise :p
Domi came here with a plan to win one or two matches and she managed to do this, the quarterfinal was just too much after the AO win and 2 rounds in Paris being in her legs lately :angel:
Oh, and if Domi is going to lose, it must be Elena that beats her :worship:
A win in doubles :hearts: Congrats Linds at your sigles wins :hug:

-Gisela , the match against Moore was the first in two sets of the year.

-In quarters an other match irregular , you were 4-5 in the third but won 3 consecutive games.
"First set i really played a bad tennis but in the second i enjoy and relax , then in the third our tennis was more regular"

-Next is Davenport.
"yeah , if she is here sure will be very difficult but if i play my best tennis i am sure i will win."

Szavay Edges Dementieva To Reach Final

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/526/DLM105020911_1024x768.jpg
Hungarian Agnes Szavay plays a backhand during her semi-final match against Russian Elena Dementieva at the Paris tennis open tournament. Agnes Szavay won 0-6, 6-1, 7-5.

Hungarian player Agnes Szavay continues her fairy tale journey in Paris as she upset #5 seed Elena Dementieva of Russia in the semi final at the Paris Tier II Indoor event.She defeated the Russian 0-6,6-1,7-5 and advances to her first career final.

Despite started the match awfully with a bagel(her fourth bagel since the first round),the #8 seed carried herself well and stormed through the second set before wasting 3 match points to eventually battle past Dementieva in a one hour and forty six minute match with a forehand down the line winner.

"I'm very very happy and surprised to make it to the final here in Paris.I never thought I'd do so well thus far.Elena is a very good player.She is also in good form and she just beat Dominika in the previous round.So beating her somehow indicates how good I'm playing at the moment.I'm glad with it no matter what the outcome is."said the Hungarian after the match.

The #8 ranked player debuted in Sydney with a creditable semifinal appearance before crashing out in the second round at Melbourne against surprising debutant and eventual champion Dominika Cibulkova last week despite ranked #4 at the time.She now awaits American Lindsay Davenport in the final and is a step closer to the title.

Davenport Makes Paris Breakthrough
http://english.people.com.cn/200503/07/images/0306_B37.jpg

Lindsay Davenport has made a breakthrough run in Paris this week to reach her first OWTT final. Arrving at the tournament unseeded, Davenport has taken out 2 seeds en route to the final. After a disastrous start to her campaign, where she lost the first set of her 1st round match 6-0, Davenport has not lost a set since. She will play the 8th seed Agnes Szavay for the title.

"I'm very happy with this run right now. I've been waiting for a breakthrough to get my career going. I had a decent start in Australia, but this tournament I have been striking the ball so much better. I am excited to be able to play 1 match for the title. But it will be a tough match. Agnes is a great player, but I hope to just take my chances when I get them."

Road to the Final:

1R: Nathalie Dechy 0-6 7-5 6-0
2R: Maria Sharapova 6-1 6-4
QF: (6) Nicole Vaidisova 6-3 6-4
SF: (2) Gisela Dulko 6-1 7-6

Davenport played good ball all week, with very impressive wins including Dulko in the semi-finals. This should give her a great confidence boost, and she will look to continue her fine form in Antwerp next week. Good match girls :bigclap:
