BERLIN, TIER I


http://www.iiepassport.org/cities/berlin.jpg


Welcome to Berlin, as we kick off the European clay swing, in the lead up to Roland Garros. Lindsay Davenport played her way back to form in Charleston last week, winning her second title. Can she reproduce similar form here in Berlin? The top players will be looking to re-establish themselves here, after relatively poor showings for most last week. Expect good things from Sharapova, Dementieva and Moore. Let's check out what the draw holds in store for us.....


(1)Dulko Vs. Bye/WC
Hantuchova Vs. Salerni
Jankovic Vs. Muller
Harkleroad Vs. (5)Cibulkova
(7)Ivanovic Vs. Safina
Moore Vs. Petrova
Chakvetadze Vs. Schnyder
Dechy Vs. (4)Vaidisova

(3)Dementieva Vs. Bye/WC
Radwanska Vs. V.Williams
Hingis Vs. Pierce
Stosur Vs. (6)Olaru
(8)Davenport Vs. Sharapova
Golovin Vs. Capriati
Szavay Vs. S.Williams
Bye/WC Vs (2) Peer

Uncertain future for Ree on OWTT

http://cache.viewimages.com/xc/1844912.jpg?v=1&c=ViewImages&k=2&d=17A4AD9FDB9CF1939057D9939C83F10686BD6A23ACE01B07 5A5397277B4DC33E

Some says Serena is presently sick or maybe hiding a serious injury, one thing is sure she's not anymore the Ree we've known at the beginning of the season. Serena was constantly making it to semis and quarters for something like the 7-8 first weeks of the season, even if Serena seems depressed since only 3-4 weeks, it really seems to be serious.

Someone near of Serena said, "She (Serena) has changed a lot in the last weeks. She's kinda lazy, she's not training as hard as usually and she gained some weight." This is something we could notice in her match against Dominika Cibulkova, in which one she seemed to be really tired after every long rally and breathing really heavily when she had to run, to finally get bagelled in the final set.

Someone else in her entourage also said to us "Serena told me she would be trying until French Open or Wimbledon hoping for some good results. If things keep getting worse than what it presently is, she would consider retirement. She just hopes for some improvement." But getting worse than what it presently is would be tough as Serena is just playing the awfullest tennis she has ever played.

Serena Impresses!

http://www.stuff.co.nz/images/717708.jpg
Serena upsetted world number 2 in Berlin!

Serena's is in the opposite position she was at beginning of the year. Usually she was the one who was intimidating her opponent, she was fearless on court, really agressive and everybody thought she had her chances to win in every single match she was playing. Now things have changed, Serena isn't considered as a threat by anyone and her game level is in a total slump.

But the American women definitely wants to conquer back the spot she was in before, but to get there hard work will be needed. Serena will have to train harder than what she is used to and always give her maximum in her matches. The youngest Williams sister was hurt down deep inside herself, so she already started training a lot more in the gym as she knows she's got everything on court.

Results already showed, this week in Berlin, in her first round she ass whooped her Hungarian oponnent, Agnes Szavay. In 46 minutes of play, Serena won 62 60, Serena played an everything or nothing game and in this match it was totally everything.

The biggest surprise came up in the second round! Shahar Peer, world number 2 was the one facing Serena. In this match, Serena showed she had what it takes to be the number 1 and a slam winner. Except a little slump in the second set, Serena played some convincing tennis and didn't choked on any important points. Serena upsetted the Israeli 75 26 75.

After the match Ree said, "To win this kind of match, you just have to believe in yourself. Even if the second set against Shahar totally sucked, I just got back into the 3rd set knowing I was able to beat this girl. My game is the best on tour, everything is about me showing up with my best game or not!"

Hit and miss tennis from these two, but it was Dulko who was more consistent in the decider. SHe moves into her first semi-final in a while, and will be looking to do well here to consolidate her #1 ranking. The first #1 seed to make it through to the SFs in OWTT :eek:

It has taken a while, but Anna is finally playing some good ball. She follows her impressive in over Dechy with an equally impressive victory over her powerhouse compatriot Dinara Safina. A very tight affair, but once Chakvetadze went ahead in the third there was no looking back. Tough luck for Safina though, who would have won in straight sets if the CT had gone her way :hug:

Well well well!! Serena looks like she is well and truly out of her slump, as she follows up her victory over #2 Peer, with a straight sets win over last week's champ Davenport. By virtue of this win, she moves back to American #1. She has been to the semis a couple of times before, but has failed to advance beyond there - can she do any better here this week?

Gisela is back to good form as she survives a tough battle with Chakvetadze. Dulko went 5-2 ahead in the decider before Chakvetadze fought back to 5-4, but it wasn't enough as the world #1 clossed it out to seal her place in the final. Can she repeat her success from back in Sydney in week 2? Good week for Chak though who seems to finally be fulfilling her potential - hopefully see some good things from her in the next few weeks. Good match :)

Serena simply outplayed Dementieva, who had no answer to Serena's power game. Another good week for Dementieva nevertheless. Serena makes her first final, after falling at the semis several times before. SHe has had the hardest route to the final I have ever seen - Szavay, #2 Peer, #8 last week's champ Davenport, and #3 Dementieva - very impressive :worship: - can she cap it all of with a win over the #1 and make it all top 3 players?

Top seed Dulko takes the spoils here in Berlin, to claim her second title to add to the one in Sydney. She joins Peer, Olaru and Davenport as 2-time winners on tour. Serena's stunning run came to an end here - she was on fire to go 6-0 2-0 up but seemed to wilt from there. She has had a brutal week though - taking out Szavay, Peer, Davenport and Dementieva, so no surprise she is mentally frazzled!
