Drew Medina.

The actual draw is immaterial; what must be crushing is being unseeded at a MM event.

Apr 11th, 2009, 11:24 PM
Medina... ouch.
Just do your best Nicole! I hope you can surprise us and take that win!

Ow, a tough draw. In top form she would destroy Anabel, but right now, I just don't know. Anabel is so solid right now. So far we only know that Nicole can play well against Alona. Maybe she will show us something? Anabel takes some beating, so if she wins we'll know she played well.

Good luck :)

Go Nicole!

The only drawback to playing Savranska instead of AMG is that we won't be able to watch the match. Nicole vs. AMG would obviously have been put on "Pista Central" instead of "Pista 5".

Good luck Nicole! You'd better not lose this one. :p

I guess it is a much better draw :bounce: but I would have liked to have seen Nicole. :sad: She needs to win so that her later matches are shown on centre court.

Apr 14th, 2009, 11:31 AM
happy Nicole won, much needed win and very convincing scoreline, I love serving stats, finally amazing serve this season, maybe she found her serve finally and will do a big damage in Barcelona :D :hearts:

Apr 14th, 2009, 11:40 AM
Yes~I've seen this!7 aces!!!~

Apr 14th, 2009, 02:47 PM
yay a solid win with 7 aces,broken once(she only faced a BP in the entire match),and without Dfs:woohoo:
So,great job,nice start,and GL in R2 vs Schiavone,will be hard:scared:

Apr 14th, 2009, 02:55 PM

Nicole. :shrug:

She can't beat anyone decent. :o

Apr 17th, 2009, 03:55 AM
I'm glad she is getting the easy wins again, but it seems like she hits a wall against opponents in the Top 50. Hopefully she can get over this soon!

Apr 17th, 2009, 09:11 AM
Nicole...... :sad:

Apr 17th, 2009, 09:37 AM
Nicole :( Still a lot of work to do...

I didn't see the match, but the scoreline is disappointing considering the fact that Schiavone hasn't exactly been on fire lately.
