clay-court season starts in Marbella next week for Nicole, hopefully Serena will withdraw because as I looked at the field, she's the only one player Nicole wouldn't be able to beat in current form.. Nicole had always very good results on clay despite her slump last year :)
POJDME!!! :hearts: :bounce:

Wow!Back to clay!!

:lol: I like the way you write that Nicole wouldn't be able to beat Serena "in current forn," implying that she could in better form right? Heehee. Yeah, when I first saw Nicole I thought, maybe future no. 1 one day, could beat anyone on a good day... but instead of going straight for the goal, Nicole has chosen the very long scenic route with many detours. Looks like she's finally turning in the right direction now though. Clay will suit her too, lots of time to wind up her big forehand.

Hopefully she can play with focus here and make a very deep push and regain even more confidence.

great draw imo, JJ is not playing really well and Nicole could go far in this tournament :D
Apr 4th, 2009, 12:44 PM
That's a good draw for Nicole:angel:
I hope she can use her chances there. It will be great if she can reach SF or even F:bounce:
Apr 4th, 2009, 07:03 PM
Hope for a good start on clay:)

Nicole has been fortunate with some good draws so far this year. Time to take advantage of one. Win this thing, Nicole! :bounce:

I'm curious to see how she responds to the clay.
In the past she's liked this surface.
Good luck Nicole! :)

when you consider 2008 it wasn't really bad how she played on clay though she was slumping.. you know.. she lost all three matches but pretty close so I think she will shine on clay this year :)

I hope to see clay as a chance for Nicole to build a foundation heading into Wimbledon/grass court season. If she manages to make the QF of these smaller tournaments and get to the 3R/4R of RG, she will be confident and ready to defend at Wimbledon. :bounce: Then she will have nothing to defend until IW so she can really work on her game again.

Good, a late match! :banana:
Apr 5th, 2009, 10:01 PM
I hope there are livestreams so that we can see the devil at work! :devil:
I have a good feeling about this tournament. I hope she gets to play Jankovic. I hate her and Nicole should be able to wipe her off the court.
Hopefully Nicole came to Marbella really focused and ready to be a big contender again! :)
Apr 6th, 2009, 12:24 AM
Good luck Nicole. :)

Apr 6th, 2009, 05:33 PM
It was a competitive match,she fought to break down and 2-0 in 3rd:yeah::D.She hit a lots of winners with her powerful forehand and she fights hard.So I think I say it´s a great win:woohoo::),so congrats and GL vs Vinci in R2:armed:
Apr 6th, 2009, 05:43 PM
It's the first time I can follow the livestream of Nicole's after a fairly long period..Thanks for the win, thanks for giving me confidence as well.
Apr 6th, 2009, 06:15 PM
Kerber was great. It was very nice to see Nicole fight back and get a 3 set win. Earlier this year she would have lost this 3-6, 1-6.
Keep up the good work in R2 Nicole!! She plays Vinci, correct?
Apr 6th, 2009, 06:16 PM
yes,Vinci is the next:p
Apr 6th, 2009, 07:13 PM
Apr 6th, 2009, 11:38 PM
Well done, Nicole! :D
Apr 7th, 2009, 01:59 AM
:woohoo:Nicole fought back after losing the first set! I am so happy with this Nicole:worship:
Apr 7th, 2009, 06:02 AM
Nicole played very well in the final set from 0-2, she absolutely overpowered Kerber and didn't do many ues, lost her serve only once since that and served really very well.. I think she should beat Vinci with more convincing scoreline :D
