View Full Version : Eastbourne: R1: Na LI is back; def. Dellacqua 6-2 6-4

Jun 16th, 2008, 03:47 PM
SuperNa won Gold Coast coming back from an injury that took her out of the courts for 6 months. She defeated Bammer, Schnyder, Vaidisova and Azarenka in the final on her run for the title.

She got injured again later in the year. After reach SF in Antwerp and Doha (beating Jankovic and Chakvetadze), she has not played more tournaments this year. At that time, she was top 8 in the Race.

SuperNa is back. And it seems like she is so hungry of tennis ;) Definitely a good result to start. She choked a bit in the second set, where she was leading 3-1, and then lost 3 games in a row. She saved 2 BPs that would have been 3-5, and won those 3 last games of the match :singer: Hope she stays away from injurys this time... and finally achieves what she deserves :cool: She has no points to defend in the rest of the year.

She will play winner of Petrova v Peer in R2

SuperNa won't be seeded in Wimbledon, where she reached the QF in her first apperance in the MD of the tournament. Watch out girls :rocker2:

Na :D It's so cool she can get back in form and play matches like this so quickly.

Jun 16th, 2008, 03:50 PM
Good win from Na, good to see her back :)
Pretty decent effort from Casey too, good luck in doubles and then at Wimbly

Jun 16th, 2008, 03:50 PM

Jun 16th, 2008, 03:50 PM

petrova & peer are both in major slumps at the minutes aswell, so that should be an easy match either way :yeah:

Jun 16th, 2008, 03:50 PM
good luck to na next round

Jun 16th, 2008, 03:50 PM

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:08 PM
Let's go Super Na!~~~

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:15 PM
Na Li, well done :yeah: :)

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:16 PM
I had idea Na Li was back until I saw it on Eurosport and I raced over to here. Congrats to Na Li. I've always had this feeling about Na Li that if she didn't have injuries she would rule the world. I also feel like Na Li teases us because she never plays that often; she plays so sporadically because of her injuries. :mad: grrr

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:16 PM
Na :woohoo:

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:17 PM
Great win for Na-she does love faster surfaces. I think she could be tough beat this week and at Wimbledon...

*hoping she doesn't draw my faves at Wimby...*

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:30 PM
nice to see u back, na.

Just Do It
Jun 16th, 2008, 04:33 PM
Na Lić :woohoo:

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:36 PM
Na!!! I hope she goes far, I love her game when it's on.

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:42 PM
So glad she`s back ^_^

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:47 PM
Go Na!:rocker2: Na na na na na!I'm loving it!:D

Jun 16th, 2008, 04:55 PM
Na :woohoo: Welcome back :)

Casey :hug: Hopefully a better draw @ Wimby ;)

Jun 16th, 2008, 06:32 PM
she has no points to defend wall year now which is great for her if she stays healthy and has a good year! She could really soar up the rankings!

Jun 16th, 2008, 06:35 PM
Injury free year would put her in the top 10.

Jun 16th, 2008, 06:37 PM

Jun 16th, 2008, 06:45 PM
her technique is great, that's why she can bounce back every time:)
She and Sugiyama have the best footwork out there:worship: Go win this, Na!

Jun 16th, 2008, 07:22 PM
please beat Petrova next

Jun 16th, 2008, 07:45 PM
A lot of people including myself have always compared Ana Ivanovic to Lindsay Davenport, but when discussing the actual stroke movements, rotation and hitting style Na Li is much more like Lindsay. I often hear that sweet spot on Na Li's shots just like Lindsay's. Na Li has that ability to just push people back because her strokes are sooo hard and flat.

Jun 16th, 2008, 07:51 PM
Well done Na! If she wasnt injured, this girl would already be top 10! :bounce:

Jun 16th, 2008, 09:54 PM
Great to see Na back where she belongs. It seems that she can never get a decent run without a problem. I do not expect anything different this time, however, if she manages to keep playing she will get into the top 10 eventually.

Jun 16th, 2008, 11:52 PM
finally she's back again :woohoo:

good luck against Peer, Na. Take the title if possible please :)

Jun 16th, 2008, 11:59 PM
So much for Casey having a good grass game. :lol:

Jun 17th, 2008, 12:04 AM
good job na! =]

Jun 17th, 2008, 12:05 AM

Jun 17th, 2008, 12:45 AM
Great job Na! So proud of you.
Next is Petrova. 50-50 I guest. Li "back from injury" Na vs Nadia "it's look like she's rebound from the long slump" Petrova.

Jun 17th, 2008, 01:06 AM
Li Na is the definition of unseeded and looming at Wimbledon. :scared:

Jun 17th, 2008, 01:11 AM
She never misses a beat! Welcome back :bounce:.

Jun 17th, 2008, 01:27 AM
na li :crying2: i had a dream u lost in 3 of this match :p pls beat petrova this time :rocker2:

Jun 17th, 2008, 01:53 AM
good start Na Li.. :)

Jun 17th, 2008, 02:07 AM
Na! :D So good to have her playing again. A good start to the tournament; if she can just steer clear of injuries and keep playing, she'll be right back in the top 20 (and hopefully higher).

Jun 17th, 2008, 03:56 AM
Li Na is the definition of unseeded and looming at Wimbledon. :scared:

haha Yup, in the words of Serena, Na Li is a "dangerous floater." ;)

Jun 17th, 2008, 04:56 AM

Jun 17th, 2008, 05:23 AM
Casey:hug: Nice try. Keep up the good work at wimbledon!
