Mauresmo in three.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:27 AM
Momo in 2 6-4 7-6

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:29 AM
Such a great match up :hearts: Loves it!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:31 AM
Apparently, Dokic was crushing Mauresmo's serve in practice, so who knows... :o

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:31 AM
Jelly in 3 sets

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:33 AM
umm....... hopefully momo will win this

So Disrespectful
Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:35 AM
Couldn't she have got an easy draw for once?

Although I'm sure Amelie probably isn't too happy with drawing Jelena in any case.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:35 AM
This is good for Dokic. 0 pressure

Apparently, Dokic was crushing Mauresmo's serve in practice, so who knows... :o

Jelena was also hitting the back fence a lot, but yeah Mauresmo needs to serve well or :help:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:45 AM
Hope Dokic is able to get a big win. She needs it far more... but really a tough draw for both.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:46 AM
Come on Jelena :bounce:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:50 AM
you know its funny, this could've been a grand slam QF or even SF 6 years ago.

How times change

Jan 3rd, 2009, 03:54 AM
I'm looking forward to seeing how Jelena goes. :D:D

If Amelie is having an off day, this is certainly a winnable match for Jelena.
Ajde, Jelena!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:02 AM
Go Momo:armed:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:19 AM
this is too scary.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:24 AM
Mauresmo for the win! ^^

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:28 AM
you know its funny, this could've been a grand slam QF or even SF 6 years ago.

How times change

i was thinking the same thing;)

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:31 AM
Momo :yeah:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:38 AM
My 2 faves:(
I have the same fear for AO:(
I say Dokic in 3.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:58 AM
I think Mauresmo in 3, but either way I'm pissed :fiery: I like Momo and Jelly, and was hoping both of them could at least win their first matches of the year. What a horrible draw :o

Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:18 AM
loving this! Absolutely 0 pressure for dokic.


Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:20 AM

Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:38 AM
i think momo will maul her:sobs:

i hope not

Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:40 AM
I think Jelena will put up a good fight if she plays with out putting pressure on herself. I am not sure what she is expecting from herself here, but from the interviews she sounded like she was just going to see where her game is.

Amelie if is playing decently, she will have to much variety and rush Jelena to much with her volleying. Leaving the result something like 7-5 6-3

Hopefully not...

Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:42 AM

Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:47 AM
I hope 2009 is a good year for Amelie, so I hope she wins 6-0, 6-1 or something

Jan 3rd, 2009, 06:10 AM
Jelena in 3 (I hope). Ame is the fave for sure, but Jelly needs a win.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 06:38 AM
Interesting match-up for sure. It kinda sucks that Jelena gets a bad draw, but then again she will play with no pressure as you guys say. I think she will be dangerous that way. Bad draw for Mauresmo in that since, too, I guess. If Dokic can win that would be awesome, though.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 06:46 AM
Jelena will win in 3 ,come on!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 07:57 AM
Come on Jelena get off to an amazing start!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:08 AM
Dokic in 3 :) c'mon dokic

Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:19 AM
Dokic 6-3 6-3 surprise us please!!!

even if she loses its a good experience for her to play a top player

Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:29 AM
Wow what a fantastic match to start 2009! even if both are certainly far from their best level, these 2 names put next to each other should attract many many visitors. Good for the tournament!
Can't decide who's the favourite here ... it's so easy to imagine Amélie going weaker and weaker on Jelena's powerful shots ... but you can also imagine Jelena missing and missing ^^. I'm hoping for a long and exciting match!

Il Primo!
Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:42 AM
What about a draw? I want them both to lose :sobbing:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:10 AM
Hopefully Amelie. Allez :armed:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:13 AM
First interesting match-up in this season already :yeah:

I'd go with Mauresmo in 3.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:14 AM
well cant remember the last time they played each other,itss been a looooooooonnnnnng time ago for sure:tape::help::drool:
just one thing to say: ALLEZ Amélie!:bounce:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:15 AM
Mauresmo in 3 :sad: [6-2 5-7 6-4]

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:36 AM

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:51 AM
Please, Amelie in 2 easy sets:inlove:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:58 AM
I think some of you expect too much from Dokic.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:07 AM
jelena in 2

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:08 AM
Jelena needs this. 63 26 63 or somthing like that, I hope.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:21 AM
Dokic 7-6, 2-6, 6-2

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:24 AM
Dokic 6-3 2-6 7-5

Jan 3rd, 2009, 11:00 AM
Would be amazing if Dokic won...

Jan 3rd, 2009, 11:00 AM
omg shocked at playing amelie:( but im rooting for jelena!!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 11:34 AM
Come On Jelena!!!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 11:35 AM
Amelie 6-3 6-1.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 11:35 AM
what a match :worship:

Amelie in 3 sets.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:00 PM
If Amelie loses this she should retire immediately :o

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:01 PM
Go Jelly!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:03 PM
everyone knows dokic can win this, just a matter of keeping the errors down i guess, and mauresmo playing badly LOL

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:24 PM
Amélie will win for sure

But I'm curious about the scoreline!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:29 PM
Mauresmo in 2

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:32 PM
I hope Dokic :D

Miss Amor
Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:33 PM
Amelie 6-1 6-0 :drool: Dokic is as overrated now as Mirza was.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:34 PM
There is still a big gap between Amélie's current level and Jelena's one. Remenber USO when Amélie played Julie coin ranked 180. She won 6-4 6-4. And Jelena is still ranked between 150 and 200. So, Amélie in 2 sets.

Remember that Jelena lost to Craybas in 2 sets in Linz at the end of 2008. And Amélie is really stronger than Jill Craybas. No doubt if Amélie has no head injury.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:53 PM
Allez Amelie :D Dokic will get some good experience none the less

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:53 PM
i'm surprised that so many people think that it should be competitive.

I mean, Amélie totally SHOULD win this in 2 sets. :unsure:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:54 PM
Mauresmo 3-6 7-5 6-1.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 12:55 PM

Jan 3rd, 2009, 01:02 PM
I like Amelie and it really seems that every loss hastens her departure from the sport but I want Jelena to get back in the Top 100 so I'll be rooting for her.

Mateo Mathieu
Jan 3rd, 2009, 01:15 PM
I'm afraid that Mauresmo will win this one even though I'm a Dokic fan.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 01:27 PM
Mauresmo 6-2, 6-4

Jan 3rd, 2009, 01:41 PM
Part of me wants Amelie to get a great start to the year to get back to the Top 10.
Part of me wants Jelena to get back on track and have a great win to boost her confidence and return to Top 50.

I'M TORN!!!!! :sobbing:

Having said that, Amelie should win this 7-6(4) 2-6 6-4. She will lose a set of course. :o

Jan 3rd, 2009, 01:53 PM
It's pathetic!

The top quarter of the draw is packed, and when you look down from there the match-ups are piss!

Bad luck Momo!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 02:08 PM
Mauresmo really should win quite comfortably - i don't think Dokic has come back to a high enough level to win if Amelie plays half decently. That's a big if though, Mauresmo rarely makes things easy for herself and i wouldn't be at all surprised if she lost a set. Jelena is dangerous and has no pressure so you never know what she can come up with. i still say Ame to win :yeah:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 02:13 PM
The thing with Jelena is if she gets off to a good start such as 3-1 in the first set, then she can turn the heat on and be very dangerous!

northern lad
Jan 3rd, 2009, 02:20 PM
Mauresmo 6-0, 0-6, 7-6 (31)

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:42 PM
Well according to reports both are playing very well in practice and supposedly Jelena has been on the practice courts the most out of any player. Obviously it's tough to go by just practice, but it does seem like she is very hungry to do well, I love both of them equally so whomever wins I will be delighted but I do think it could be at least a decent match if Jelena plays decent and as does Amelie, but we'll see.

The Daviator
Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:51 PM
Mauresmo 6-2 6-1.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 04:57 PM
I think it's going to depend how fit they both are. I expect something like 6-2 6-4 to Amelie but a win for Jelena wouldn't shock me either. This is a good draw for Jelena as drawing someone ranked 70-90 and losing in straight sets would be depressing whereas she doesn't have much to lose here and even one good set would be encouraging.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:00 PM
Go Jelena!!! Channel your 2001 Rome final form into this match.

The Dawntreader
Jan 3rd, 2009, 05:04 PM
Dokic hasnt tackled this kind of class for at least 5 years. Mauresmo may not be the Mauresmo of '06 anymore, but she'll have far too much game for Jelena at this early stage of her comeback. It'll be a good learning curve though.

If she won however, it would be a big win for Jelena.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 06:51 PM
No pressure on Jelena in this match.

So I'm gonna say she will win this in 3 sets. :D

Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:26 PM
Head to head Mauresmo leads 2-1 with Dokic's only victory on clay during the Italian Open. But also the last time they played was 2003. I should think Dokic is coming off a nice run so i expect her to win this match. Mauresmo doesn't look the same as she used to. I love comebacks! Go Dokic and Lucic!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:27 PM
Good luck Jelly:hearts:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:30 PM
Momo i hope and will pray

Vamos Feńa
Jan 3rd, 2009, 08:35 PM
With all my love and support for Jelena I still think Mauresmo is too far from her, I predict 6-3 6-2 win for Amelie.
Still the most important thing is the head, remember Jelena lost to Schruff with 28 DFs (tanking the 3rd set) and to Razzano, and to Arn in Strasbourg although lots of us thouhgt about QF. Of course consider the matches with Wejnert-all in 3 sets. We'll se in what mental condition are both Amelie and Jelena.
Wish you luck Jelly! :kiss:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:16 PM
Bookmakers give 2/7 Mauresmo 9/4 Dokic

Just Do It
Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:17 PM
I really dont know what to expect :shrug:

Voted Jelena though :angel:

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:18 PM
Mauresmo about 6-3 6-1

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:28 PM
I'd expect Amélie to win but I'd also expect Jelena to give a good account of herself but Amélie was pretty hit and miss last season so it's certainly not a dead cert. I think it'll go to 3 with Amélie winning something like 3-6 7-5 6-1. Hope it's a good match because both seriously need the court time!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 09:30 PM

6-2, 7-5

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:03 PM
:eek: @ the draw!

Worst thing is that I don't suppose it will be on T V anywhere :sad:; so many of us would love to see this match! :(

Well, who knows what will happen :scared:, Amelie should win, but you never know with Amelie! :p Still, she's sounding determined for 2009, so maybe a 'tough' (i.e. not necessarily judging by ranking but in reality), first round match could be good for her. She'll have to be really focussed from the beginning and then it'll be sink or swim! Amelie, start as you mean to go on in 2009: swim, and swim FAST!! :) ALLEZ!!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:25 PM
I think some of you expect too much from Dokic.

You are right...as much as I love her and would like to see her back I think even not in form Momo is too much for her right now...hope I am wrong!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:30 PM
Huge 1R draw of a small tournament like Brisbane. Re-match of a Tier I Final!

Obviously Mauresmo is favourite and should drop only 3 or 4 games. This should be an interesting match, to see where Dokic and Mauresmo are in their tennis right now.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:30 PM
:eek: @ the draw!

Worst thing is that I don't suppose it will be on T V anywhere :sad:; so many of us would love to see this match! :(

We get to see it here in Australia, so I presume it will be on Justintv or something. I'm sure there will be a live stream some where.

Jan 3rd, 2009, 10:58 PM
Well, i like them both, but hoping Dokic pulls this off-will be great for her confidence!

Jan 3rd, 2009, 11:06 PM
just wanna see jelena wins this time around

Jan 4th, 2009, 12:01 AM
Go Momo, GO!

Jan 4th, 2009, 12:07 AM
i hope momo will get thrashed by dokic :)

wishful thinking :)

Jan 4th, 2009, 12:09 AM
:eek: @ the draw!

Worst thing is that I don't suppose it will be on T V anywhere :sad:; so many of us would love to see this match! :(

ive been trying to get set up with a justin.tv broadcast but for some unknown reason my capture card isnt working with it. If your keen on viewing the match you will be able to download it from t3nnis.tv. This match will be on CC so i will have coverage :bounce: :bounce:

Jan 4th, 2009, 12:28 AM
What a hard draw!
Mauresmo then most likely ivanovic (if she beats mauresmo)

Jan 4th, 2009, 12:34 AM
We get to see it here in Australia, so I presume it will be on Justintv or something. I'm sure there will be a live stream some where.

Thanks! I hope so! :)

Jan 4th, 2009, 12:37 AM
Momo in two.
Something like 7:5 6:3

Jan 4th, 2009, 02:03 AM
I just have a feeling Dokic is going to do good things this year...

Jan 4th, 2009, 02:06 AM
Mauresmo 6-3, 7-5

Jan 4th, 2009, 05:45 AM
Gosh i really really really hope that Jelena can win this, but she has about a 5% chance i think :( :( :(

Realistically, Mauresmo should be way too good at this stage and win something like 6-3 6-2. But, with Jelena you never ever know what she's going to come up with - same for Mauresmo as well i suppose lol.

I'm just really looking forward to seeing the match on TV tomorrow :D :D

Jan 4th, 2009, 05:51 AM
Amelie should win this in 2 (hope she won't self destructed in the first match of the year :unsure:)

Jan 4th, 2009, 05:52 AM
Mauresmo will win in a quick two.

Jan 4th, 2009, 05:59 AM
After seeing the way Bartoli trounced Wejnert, I'm definately not getting my hopes up, anymore. Because, Australians suck except for $25K's. :rolleyes:
Would be great if she won, but winning 7 or 8 games would be a good start to 2009.

So Disrespectful

I don't think you should use that match as a predictor for Jelena's. Monika has never played in a main draw before, obviously she was nervous to begin with. I don't think she's even played a top 100 opponent. Jelena has ample experience on the big stage (including a similar scenario in 2006) and certainly won't have any problems handling Amelie's pace.

Also, during the playoff Jelena had been pitted against girls outside of the top 300 all week. Now that she's been hitting with some quality opponents, I'm sure she's had the chance to adjust.

Jan 4th, 2009, 01:58 PM
Maybe 6-2 6-2 or 6-3 6-1 for Amelie. But I would be so happy if Jelena can do same damage:D

Crazy 4 Anci
Jan 4th, 2009, 02:21 PM
Heart - Jelena
Head - Amelie

Jan 4th, 2009, 04:19 PM
Its on bet365 also

Jan 4th, 2009, 05:27 PM
I just want too see Jelena's good match , if she ends as a winner it will be great :shrug:

AJde Jelena :rocker2:

Jan 4th, 2009, 06:49 PM
Fingers, toes and eyes all crossed for a blazing start in 2009 for Momo!

Jan 4th, 2009, 07:18 PM
Mauresmo like 6-2 6-1

Jan 4th, 2009, 07:27 PM
Dokic, 2-6, 6-4, 7-5

cn ireland
Jan 4th, 2009, 07:29 PM
Dokic in 3: 2-6 7-5 6-3 :bounce:

Jan 4th, 2009, 07:29 PM
hoping dokic, but i honestly think mauresmo in 2 sets

Jan 4th, 2009, 08:23 PM
I usually bag Dokic in forums but If she is to beat a top player in her "comeback" then Mauresmo is a perfect chance. As seen many times Mauresmo of all the big players (not that she's much of a force the last few years) has the most fragile mental state.

Will depend which Mauresmo shows up on the day and whether Dokic can have a good mix of risk and consistency in her game which in the past has been all on or way too many unforced errors.

Jan 4th, 2009, 09:31 PM
Momo !!!!!!!! :D
