Next season is still not here,but maybe we can start posting here if we have news concerning the tournaments she'll play etc.

So does anyone know where does Aravane start her 2009 season? Auckland?


Good luck in 2009 :kiss: and let's kick some asses!!!! :rocker2: Allez Aravane!

yes aravane will try to defend her 2008 points won in Auckland tournament.She was runner up.
She'll have to play qualies cause the field in MD is very good ranking.

it will be tough for aravane because many good players such as dementieva,wozniacki,petrova,srebotnik,vaidisova.. .

1st match tonight for us in France at 23.00 PM.
Not too bad this schedule :)

Iceland
Jan 4th, 2009, 11:12 PM
Yep it was an excellent timing and Aravane did more than pleasing us with her 63 36 63 win over Eleni :woohoo:

A very enjoyable match with lots of stunning winners from Aravane. She could really last long in the rallies and resist to changes of pace which is quite a positive thing. Even with Eleni being far from her best level, we can take this match as a good basis for 2009. Not so many silly mistakes, a very interesting willingness to finish the points at the net & few returns missed. Some errors at finishing points & shaky serves in the end are to deplore but overall, the 2008 finalist has been very convincing! Bravo :D

Aravane looked very fit & quick there, she has accomplished a very serious work on her shape. Respect for this, she has turned into a very hard-woker!

améliemomo
Jan 5th, 2009, 10:38 AM

she is making no noise but she is there.:angel:


She probably will have to play against another big hitter as pavlyochenkova,will be tough but allez aravane,you can do it:)

merci Iceland pour les infos complementaires;)

Steffy6094
Jan 5th, 2009, 05:24 PM
What a pleasure to see Aravane play like this.
She improved a lot her physical during the off season, yes she is fit & move well on the court and her game on the net is very interesting :) ok there is some mistake but she tried and won some good points on the net. I think 2009 will be a good season for her.
Can't wait for the second round : a good test.

Alizé Molik
Jan 7th, 2009, 05:48 AM
62 63 against a solid top 50 or even 40 opponent! Aravane is obviously back to her form of this time last year!

Iceland
Jan 7th, 2009, 09:17 AM
Aravane's best performance since ages :D
Great upset, exactly what she needs to keep herself inside top 100! Tonight, we can watch her live against Gallovits on online bet websites.

Well done :bounce:

Unfortunately I can't follow matchs as they are late here :o but what I read is very encouraging :D

Iceland
Jan 7th, 2009, 10:50 PM
Aravane won 63 62 but it wasn't pretty!!!

Gallovits played certainly on her lowest level of tennis, she couldn't put a serve in and hit 10 DFs - the final one was on MP :x. On the other side, Aravane wasn't that involved into her match, well Gallovits' bad play seemed to have put her off. She looked a bit lazy on the court I thought. She wad pretty much dictating rallies but in her old way, that is by overpowering her opponent from the baseline with heavy and deep groundstrokes. I prefer when she tries to go forward :p!
Another bad point: terrible break points conversion = 7/19 + 3 Sps missed on her serve at 5/2!

Well it doesn't matter much as it was obvious (and she probably felt it) that she would get through. So congrats Aravane, great week!!!!!!!! :)
Next: Dementieva/Peer.

Alizé Molik
Jan 8th, 2009, 12:07 AM
this next match will be such a challenge! Remember the match against Dementieva at the USO? she played a solid match and lost something like 75 64, I would much rather Peer though.

Iceland
Jan 8th, 2009, 07:44 AM
It will be Dementieva! Aravane has had 2 close matches with her (in which she blew her opportunities).
Elena was playing pretty well despite a couple of mistakes, hitting the ball very cleanly and hard. Tough match then for Aravane but a very enjoyable challenge. This tournament has already been a success, this one is only for pleasure. :)

Alizé Molik
Jan 8th, 2009, 08:01 AM
for sure antoine :D I hope Aravane will go on court with confidence and just hit out, it will be an amazing match to see if they are both on form and smashing winners!

that said I'd love to see Aravane go one better this year :p

améliemomo
Jan 8th, 2009, 09:50 AM
yeah very ugly match from aravane, and all the break points she couldnt convert:tape:
she really have to take the one she ll have against dementieva cause she's way better player than gallovitz.

Allez good match!

Aravane lost 62 62 :hug: Excellent tournament still!
Now I only wish for her that she builds on this form and won't find herself struggling for the coming months, just as last year. I really want her back in top 50!

Alizé Molik
Jan 15th, 2009, 10:04 AM
today i saw Aravane walking with her papa at AO qualifications and she looked happy and healthy!

Aravanecaravan
Jan 15th, 2009, 05:25 PM
Cool. I jumped on the bandwagon late, but obviously with her ranking down in the 80's it isn't just because she's winning. I really like her personality, game, attitude, and it doesn't hurt that she's got those Persian looks. She's a total cutie pie.

Good to hear that she's in good spirits in Melbourne. I hope she continues her good form and goes on a run at the AO.

BTW, does anyone know Aravane's schedule yet? Will she play at Ponte Vedra? I'm going to Miami again and might get a chance to see her there, but the past couple of years she also played Amelia Island. Now that it's moved south to the Sawgrass Country Club at Ponte Vedra, does anyone know she's planning on playing there? I doubt Sharapova will defend, and Paszek probably won't play there, but if Aravane were playing, I'd go there, too!

Alizé Molik

A third round to defend this year hope she will do it :)
The draw is not easy but match after match.... first of all Ekatarina : she lost against her last year in Amelia Island so she has a revenge to take and a good challenge in the second round :)

Nice to read that she seems in a good mood in Melbourne :)

Let's Aravane let's go!

first set she just destroyed makarova completely blew her off the court,then Makarova started to play better and the errors began and then got worse for Aravane, similar to last year against Hsieh when she just sort of played brainlessly.

Great news! :woohoo:

She had a terrible first percentage (38%) but she still managed to be cruising in this one. Only 3 DF out of 26 2nd serves, not bad :cool:. Good to see Aravane scoring a big result just when she needed points to come back into top 100. It would be a shame to miss Roland-Garros & Wimbledon cut.
Now I hope Aravane stays consistent, it's always the same problem with her. It depends on whether she feels motivated enough to be moving well & staying patient in the rallies.
Next: Coin/Voegele.

Please qualify!

Nice win over Pironkova 63 64 in a bit more than an hour. Was in total control of the match except at the end when her nerves got into it again ^^.
She has 80 more points to add to her ranking, this victory could not come at a better time!
I really like her draw overall. I believe in her capacity of overpowering Flavia. Ok, the Italian is quick & can counterpunch the power players but a consistent Aravane could make her surrender. Allez!

Agi is a smart player, she won't hesitate to use high balls on the FH to disrupt the rhythm. On the other hand she has this fantastic BH down the line. Hard to establish an effective game plan. Aravane will anyway try to overpower her and make her run. It's actually the best thing to do ^^ Agi is really dangerous, certainly more than Flavia to me.
Anyway I will be happy whoever wins this. Both girls are very talented. Good luck!

It's going to be tough! Hope all French girls have a better day today than yesterday which was a disaster!

I totally forgot about this encounter in Zurich. Sugiyama is no easy match for Aravane as she gets so many balls back. Since Aravane takes the ball pretty late, Sugiyama has the time needed to recover from her rocket-shots and defend or counter-punch. With the years, she is less and less efficient but she remains a difficult opponent. Aravane needs patience, intelligence and accuracy.
Match starts in less than 30 min. Allez!

Such a long time since the last match I watched of her (Auckland) and wow, Aravane looks so good! Ultra-aggressive strokes but also deep and spinned balls on defense to have Sugiyama behind the baseline. Her mobility was quite good as well. What impressed me the most is this confidence in herself which makes her try each time she is in difficulty. She was really nervous at the beginning and managed to overcome pressure with that positive temper.

A Strong Start.
Bravo Aravane.
This time I saw the whole match. You played a grate tennis today.
Impressive and aggressive. Absolutely amazing.
In my point of view, you (and your team) have to work on your serve to make yourself a top 10 player.
Your grand strokes are perfect, but first serve percentage is low (58%), and today you had no ace and 5 double faults.
I think if you raise your 1st serve percentage up to more than 68% you can even beat Nadal. Really. Not joking.
Sometimes little changes have a big effect, I suggest little body rotation and more spin on 2nd serve.
And on mental side you have to bring more pertinacity(SEMAJAT) into your game.
Today 1st set 1st game you was leading 40-0 and then you made 5 consecutive unforced error.
Sometimes thing like this can change the result. We don' t double fault where we are 0-40 behind. do we?
Whenever you were leading 40-0 try to reverse. imagine your opponent is 40 and you are love.
Best of luck in 2nd round.
Viva Aravane.
Allez!!!

yes ragsem aravane's answer to nerves is usually to hit the ball harder :D and I agree on the serve, it really is a terrible motion..it's all arm and no body movement at all really, it's just a swat at the ball.

with another win top 50 is basically guarenteed. Aravane is back people! If i was a seed in her part of the draw i'd be worried, we could be talking about the istanbul rape of dementieva but sans injury if she really gathers momentum.
