I think she can get to the R16 if she keeps playing well. She just beat Daniella so that would increase her chances if she got to her in the 3rd round. Pin in the first can be tough though, very similar games, but Alize hits the ball with more authority.

I watched Alize practice today, her knee is still bothering her. She was really upset at one point, she wasn't playing great and I think was in pain. But she got better as the practice went on (she was playing with Parmentier).

But she was really great afterwards, from my experiences she's the nicest player on the WTA :yeah:

I watched again match vs Caro- now sober. Watching thos stupid errors in last 3 games , there are 2 posibilites- she gave up, or was not able to play better becouse of injury...I belive Alize is never giving up- especially when still has a chance to win...Loks like it knee is something serious...

Thank you very much Adeegee!!! Alize will be toughin her matches no matter what! As long as the end looked better she was probably just getting her leg loosened up a little. :)

- Cornet seems to have a lot of haters here, but if anyone speaks to her at a tournament I'm 99% sure they'd change their mind.






- Alize :inlove: man she's awesome. She played horribly in the first set, Camille had a lot of success coming forward and Alize's forehand wasn't really penetrating or doing any damage. Nice second set though, imo her 2 handed backhand is one of the most pleasing on the eye in the women's game. Her and Camille seem very good friends, they had some very nice exchanges and were pretty much calling the lines, they would check with each other when they were unsure on a call. Alize was great after her match as well, she was having a photo with a guy and then demanded the person take another one because she didn't like her smile :spit: then someone said "you're gonna win the Open!" so she says "I don't think so, but I try my best" :awww: it was hard to get good photos because it was under the lights, couldn't really take any of moving objects so I was having great difficulty with Camille's bullet serve :( ;)



Found this in the General Messeges. Sounds like Alize is a sweetheart and played decent today. Especially in the second set! :)

She didn't play great in the first set, I think she struggled because she's good friends with Pin. 2nd set was much better though.

Mattek is a tricky 2nd round match, but if she can beat her she should reach the round of 16 minimum. Knee didn't seem to bother her too much today which is nice.

I'll go to her doubles match tomorrow, I like when she plays with Timea, they have a lot of fun on court.

Good win against a tough 1st round opponent.
Good to hear she raised her level in the 2nd set, and I hope she'll keep it up in her upcoming match(es)
Allez :hearts:

Thanks fro the info! Alize sounds like a great girl :D
I like her Timea as a team, two players who I really like, but they always choke in their matches, spreding leads and match points... :tape:
I hope they won't do so today..

I like Timea as well, she's cute.

They were really bad today though, neither of them played well. They deserved to lose :(

I can't go tomorrow, but I hope she beats Mattek so I can see her again on Saturday.

I'd like her to play against that Moore girl...Is she good? Able to upset 2nd ugliest player in the world aka ALG?

Iceland
Aug 28th, 2008, 05:18 PM
Job done :) She had to dig pretty deep to get this first set, Mattek helped her a bit finishing it with so many errors
That's great that she won in straights despite the struggle. She needs to save her energy for a possible encounter against Safina.
Congrats, this is a good win over an in-form girl :)

Best of luck next round. Moore or ALG are winnable, especially if she's healthy and everything :)

Are you a fan of Cornet? And you don´t look the match because of Groenefeld´s face? Oh my goodness :lol:.

I also like Cornet, but not people who have to affront Groenefeld. This is so poor :help:

Lets say her face was always bringing negative feelings to me...Why? Don't know why, just becouse...Don't get me wrong, I don't have anything against Groenfeld, Im not a "hater" or somewthing like that, but...I prefer to avoid her matches...

GL Alize, however, it's not gonna be easy. I'm not sure that Moore is an indication for anything, but ALG looked very good against her (In tennis terms, saint2 ;) )

I knew Groenefeld would be dangerous, but I thought Alizé would fight through. :(

Well Alize was really unable to play her game, ALG was simply overpowering her and her first serve was just too good. For once Alize didnt commit too many errors, only 11 for 11 winners.
Alize will have to improve her shots if she wants to be successful on hard courts, she is a bit too fragile when she has the pressure of being the favourite. She fought bravely though, a bagel would have been hard.

Not a bad US Open all in all even though it could have been better. :hug:
