Australian Open


http://www.livingedgerental.com.au/images/AO-Grand-Slam-Asia-Pacific8_000.jpg


Welcome to the Australian Open - the first Grand Slam of Season 3! Our first 8 Grand Slams have been won by 8 different women, which shows the great depth we have here on the OWTT Tour. Will be finally get a repeat winner, or will a new Slam champ come to the fore? The warmup events were won by Kirilenko and Craybas, who will be looking to transfer their good form here. The top players really struggled in Sydney, so will have to work hard to find their form here in Melbourne.

Just because Tati outed Dani as the lesbo she is last week doesnt mean she has to transfer her repressed sexual feelings on to Nikki & Rena. Now run along and listen to your Katy Perry CD.

Makiri reaches second round of the S3 Australian Open

http://i1.sinaimg.cn/ty/t/p/2008-01-19/U1647P6T12D3427391F44DT20080119114106.jpg
Makiri thanks to the crowd after the match

Gold Coast champion and Sydeny quarterfinalist Maria Kirilenko reaches the second round of the Season 3 Australian Open, by defeating number 14 seed Argentine Gisela Dulko in straight sets, 7-6(6) 6-4 in only about one and a half hour!

Maria did have a good run here last year, reaching the third round. And this year, she is coming here with even better form. In the first set, Maria couldn't play her best as usual as she did in other matches, losing the first three games and came back to 3-3. Then both players hanging there and held serve. Makiri saved one match point when Gisela was serving at 6-5, then won the first set in a tie-breaker, 8-6!

In the second set, Maria again lost the first three games, then cameback to 3-2. This time, Gisela broke Maria's game and was leading 4-2. After that, Gisela called the trainer and received treatments, but Maria seemed know how to play better during the treatments, winning all the remaining games and win it 7-6(6) 6-4!!

"Yeah!! I feel pretty great!! I lost to Gisela several times before, even my debut lose! Also she is higher-ranked player. So i guess it will be a great battle!! But there's nothing i can lose, i won many matches before this and Gisela even came here with an injury!! I am really happy that i can win this, and i am still really confident right now, i hope my momentum can continue in this Grand Slam!!"

In the next round, she will face Patty Schnyder, who beat number seven seed Ana Ivanovic in three sets. "I don't know much about Patty, i hope i can still play my best tennis in that match in order to defend my last season's points!!"

Kournikova fought into second round

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/550/12003-ausopen83.jpg


The first Grand Slam of the third seson has arleady begin under a wonderful sunny day in Melbourne. After a bad week in Sydney, seeds continued to fall today as we saw (1)Serena Williams, (7)Ana Ivanovic, (11)Nicole Vaidisova, (14)Gisela Dulko and (16)Jelena Jankovic going out of the Asutralian Open in the first round. Only (3)Dinara Safina, (5)Anna Kournikova and (10)Malek fought their way into second round and two of the remaining seeds will meet in the next round; Malek and Kournikova who defeated Sorana Cristea in straight sets of 7-5 and 7-5.
‘’That was a pretty tough win. Honestly, I thought I was going to win something like 6-4 and 6-3. But it was way harder than expected. Sorana is a good player but her strategy was trying to overpower me. Fortunately, I was able to fight my way back into the match in both sets. I came back from 2-5 in the first set and 3-5 in the second set. Honestly, I was really afraid to get out in the first round too as she played stunning tennis in the first 7 games of the match. She was amazing. But her level of play dropped after such a big lead. Maybe she choked or I don’t know. Anyway, I am really happy to get this win. With seeds falling like this in the top hald, I do need to take this opportunity to defend my semifinal. But I wasn’t lucky as I am going to meet a seeded player in the next round, Malek. I think I already played against her last season. I don’t remember if I won though. I know she’s a great player but I do need this win and I am feeling confident right now. I reached the final last week and I felt like I could have won that final. Anyway, I am going to focus on my next match now and I will hope for the best.’’ said Kournikova.

Malek struggles into Aussie Open Second Round

http://cache.daylife.com/imageserve/04C9bOq4dlgUF/610x.jpg

Seeded tenth at this years Australian Open, Tatjana Malek had to battle hard to take a less than convincing place in the second round of the first Grand Slam of the year. The German, up against Pole Agnieszka Radwanksa, struggled under the Melbourne sun as the young pole dominated from the baseline to wrap up an easy first set without the loss of not one game. Malek recieved a medical time out after the first set for a shoulder problem that she picked up in Sydney but the treatment seems to help her hit more freely, slowing turning the match on its side by coming from a two breaks down 03 to seal the second 64.

The deciding set was close to begin, with both starting to hit the lines more frequently. However a close line call in the third game on break point for Malek seemed to change the rhytmn of the match as Radwanska broke a racket, leading to a warning. Radwanska became more and more erratic as Malek showed why she is ranked higher. Keeping her form, she waited for another unforced error off the strings of the Pole to take her second match point for a 06 64 61 victory, in 89 minutes. However, Malek knows she will have to raise her game significantly to stand a chance against fifth seed, Russian Anna Kournikova.

"Im shocked that I managed to pull through that, actually" said Malek "My year hasnt started well but some luck went my way today and I pulled out the victory so Im pleased, but I know I can do better. Im taking over from Olaru this season who has done so well in the last two, so Im feeling a lot of pressure. Maybe the pressures getting to me a little bit, I dont know. We will see how tommorow goes"

When asked if she thought she had a chance against the Russian, Kournikova, Malek simply laughed and said no. "Well Maybe, but it needs to be 100% better than today. I need a good tournament here. Olaru had a career high of three so I want to better that, becoming number 1 in the long run. Kournikova is a great player but the kind of player I need to beat if Im going to get here. The draw is pretty wide open, especially the top half, so I have a chance to make my mark. But all thats on my mind right now is getting to the Quarters. One step at a time"

Today was an excitement filled day today as the Australiamn open kicked off. The top half debuted on the brand new blue surface, and many seeds were quickly eliminated including the number one in the world serena williams. Then the bottom half and all the seeds except for TATIANA "I suck at lfe and penis" Golovin. Hantuchova won her match routinely against Martina Hingis. Here is what Hantuchova said after the match.
"First rounds are tough especially aginst floaters like hingis. Me and martina have that Slovak native vibe going and it was tough to play a friend. Im happy the bottom half is so competitive"

Kournikova cruises into quarterfinal

http://www.wtnphotos.com/data/550/1akoupic14.jpg


Tonight, the second round of the Australian Open took part in Melbourne. The Russian lady and 5th seeded player this week, Anna Kournikova, played her match against Talaja Malek, 10th seed. In the first round of action, Kournikova fought her was back 2-5 and 3-5 in each sets to defeat Cristea in straight sets of 7-5 and 7-5. Today, i twas a better, almost a perfect match for the sexy blonde. She cruises into quarterfinal with a confortable win of 6-1 and 6-4. She will next meet compatriot and qualifier Nadia Petrova.
''Wow. That’s pretty exciting. I arrived positive on court and I was ready to play my game. Malek is a new player here, but she has a really good trainor so, she’s a top player. That’s really rare for me to beat a Top player in straight sets and I have to say I am pretty happy, proud and excited about it. It gives me even more confidence with last week’s final. That was a perfect match for me. Malek didn’t play bad tennis, but I did played brilliant tennis. I hope I’ll carry this form into my next matches. At the moment, I think I am one of the girls to beat and I am ready to fight for the title. It’s been a while since I haven’t won a title on this Tour. My last one was during the first season, in Quebec. So now it should be a great moment for me to break that curse and win another title and that would be exciting as there’s no girls who have won 2 Grand Slam titles on the OWTT Tour. Anyway, first of all now is Petrova. I have never played against her and I don’t even know her and her game. She’s coming from the qualification and hadn’t loss a match yet. She won her matches 6-0 and 6-2, 6-1 and 6-0 and finally 6-0 and 6-4. So I think we can conclude that she is a brainless ball basher. I have to admit this is going to be a tough match. I’ll have to make her play and make her run for the ball, hope it will work. But I do have less pressure now. Some seeds and top players are already out of the tournament and I need another win to defend my semifinal, so I think I can do it.’’ Said Kournikova.

Safarova Charges in Quarterfinals

http://i36.tinypic.com/357je4m.png http://i33.tinypic.com/156wvpy.png

Melbourne, Australia - Twelfth seeded Lucie Safarova put on a show for Australian tennis fans as she charged in the Australian Open quarterfinals with an impressive 6-0 6-3 win over eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova. In the rematch of the Sydney quarterfinals last week, which the Russian prevailed 0-6 6-4 6-0, like the clash in Sydney, Safarova made an emphatic start. The Czech was playing near flawless tennis, hitting lines, serving well, been patient and kept her errors to a low. She quickly went up a double break which then resulted in the first set won 6-0 in just under 30 minutes. Kuznetsova is not number 8 in the world for nothing, as in the second set the Russian played much better tennis. Making Safarova fight for every point, the pair both held serve until 3-2 where Kuznetsova let her guard drop. Safarova pounced on a weak backhand by the Russian giving her the break, and later a ticket into the quarterfinals of a grand slam.

"I'm so proud of my performance today," Safarova told the crowd in her on-court interview. "I knew what to do this time to beat Sveta, and I'm happy my tactics paid off." "Thanks guys for cheering me on today, I love playing in front of so supportive and friendly people." Next up for Safarova is second seed and defending champion, Alize Cornet, who rallied from a set down to defeat veteran Jill Craybas 0-6 6-4 6-1 in her second round match. “Alize is such a friendly girl, and she a fantastic player,” Safarova said about her next opponent. “She has such a dangerous game on these courts and I really need to be at the top of my game like today to beat her.” “If I can serve well and keep my errors low I reckon I might have a chance.”

The match between Cornet and Safarova is last on Rod Laver tomorrow with tickets already sold out while also been broadcasted live around the world. After leaving the court, Safarova met up with boyfriend Tomas Berdych who had been cheering her on from her box along with her parents, coach and hitting partner. Safarova will have a training session on Margret Court Arena at 10:00am tomorrow and is allowing the public to watch.

Makiri still goes strong, reaches first grand slam QF ever

Maria hits a forehand

Young Russian and being one of the favourites at the Australian Open, Maria Kirilenko reaches her first ever grand slam Quarterfinal by defeating Swiss vertean Patty Schnyder in three tight sets, 6-1 2-6 7-5 in nearly 2 and a half hours of play!!

In the first set, Patty broke Maria's opening game immidiately! But after that, the set is going to Maria's way!! Maria soon won the next 6 games and won the set, 6-1!! In the second set, Patty seemed find back her form and was leading 4-0. Then Makiri broke back to 4-2. But Patty just also found a new game plan and Makiri was really surprised, Patty then won the second set, 6-2! In the final set, the crowd seemed want to see an upset here, cheering Patty on every points, but Makiri really loved this "extra" energy as she wanted the crowd back supporting her, and she did it and cameback from 3-0 down to 3-3! Then both players hold serves to 5-5. In the 11th game, Patty was leading 40-0, but she served a serve which looked like an ace, the umpire was overuled and the point went to Makiri, then Patty hit consectative unforced errors and finally even lost the match, 6-1 2-6 7-5 in 2 and a half of play!! But the handshake is really terrible, Patty really didn't love the way she played in the end of the match, and the umpire even gave her a warning even the match was ended!!

"Today was really difficult for me, i really needed to do a hardwork to play my best tennis, as Patty just kelt hitting angles and i felt that i nearly had run the whole court!! She was a great player, i think i would have lost this match if Patty didn't change her emotion in the end of the match, i felt really sorry for her, and i hope i can play her again as this match is so fun, i really enjoyed it! I hope i can still do my best, as i really feel that i can do well in this Grand Slam!!" In the quarterfinals, she will face number three seed Dinara Safina, they have just met each other last week at the first round in Sydeny, Maria won it and we hope that this time will be the same!! Keep going, Makiri!!

Makiri surprises everybody, reaches semis as unseeded!!

http://i0.sinaimg.cn/ty/t/p/2008-01-21/U2150P6T12D3431857F44DT20080121134145.jpg
Makiri chasing Dinara's powerful shots

Would you expect that?? An unseeded player reached the semifinals in a grand slam, and that is Maria "Doing well in Australia" Kirilenko, she reached the semis by defeating the second highest ranked player left in the draw, number three seed Dinara Safina, 6-3 0-6 7-5 in two hours of play!!

This match is just a turning around. In the first set, Dinara was leading 3-0(As usual!!) and then Maria cameback, this is simply become a tradition for Maria!! Then you would expect that! Maria won the next 6 games to win the first set, 6-3. But in the second set, maybe Maria was just so relaxed, and Dinara kept hitting powerful shots and saying "Come on!!", that really did hurt Maria, as she had nothing to defence, Dinara won it 6-0, and guess what?? Maria only won a total of 7 points in that set!! In the final set, more and more crowd left, but they did miss the drama. As Maria was just back in form!! Dinara once again was leading 3-0, the Maria cameback, but this time, both players held their serves, and it was Makiri who hanging out at the end, and again win it 7-5. Dinara was really frustrated, she cracked her rackets something like 10 times a set!! But at last, she had to admit that Makiri is still better in Australia!!

"I just can't imagine that, i have never reached semis before, but i was just thinking giving this a try, and i think i just received what i expect to do, and even better!! So i was just so happy, also playing Dinara is a truly challenge for me, because she is so tough, she got the power, mental tough, and also skillful volleys!! I really thought i will be destryoed by her before this match, but luckily i hit a lot of lucky shots, that makes me playing with more confidence!! And i have been really satisfied with myself, it is not a matter if i will lsoe in the next round, because i only have just playing tennis seriously for not so long!! But for sure, i hope i can still play my game in the semifinals!!" In the semis, she will face the one who beat her last week, number seven seed Anna Kournikova, and this time, both players are much better, so the crowd will watch a real battle for sure!!

Congratulations to Lindsay Davenport who wins her first Grand Slam - we now have 9 different winners for the 9 slams played thus far!! Kournikova beat Davenport last week in Sydney so this was sweet revenge for Davenport. Kournikova was so close in the second set but couldn't find her best tennis at the key moments - she will be bitterly disappointed, but has still had a great couple of weeks!

omg. :help: :sobbing: :crying2:

I can't win a title anymore. Two final losses in two weeks. :sad:
Plus, this would have been a GS title. :sobbing:
I am really dissapointed Anna hasn't been able to save the Tour from Granny to win a slam. :o

OH MY GOD. I completely missed this, and Sydney, and Paris! 4 tourneys in 1 week?! :eek: Sorry Chris :sad:

Lindsay :woohoo: Finally realises her potential :bounce:

Anna :hug: Sorry Lindsay had to beat you so bad but if it's any consolation you probably won't be in a slam final again. Hope you enjoyed the experience :yeah:
