May 19th, 2009, 03:52 PM
Earlier than expected!


1st round highlights:

Oprandi - Date Krumm
Halep - Krajicek
Malek - Bovina
Vakulenko - Hercog

May 19th, 2009, 03:58 PM
Yeh much earlier. Bad draw for the Brits :(

Bally will have to beat the top seed in FQR again if she wants to make it into the MD. Thats twice in a row now.

I think she will have a WC in 2r though?

May 19th, 2009, 03:59 PM
Vakulenko-Hercog is another big 1st round matchup

Oprandi v Date-Krumm will be cooler than 95% of the main draw matches. Shame these two had to draw each other. And as if that isn't bad enough Yari ends up drawing Shenay Perry, Julia Vakulenko meets Polana Hercog in the 1st round and Sesil Karatencheva looks set to play Corinna Dentoni in the 2nd round. :banghead:

Great. Once again all my faves are drawn against each other. I hate this draw with a passion. :mad:

May 19th, 2009, 04:23 PM
Is Alexa Glatch not playing? I don't think I saw her in the draw anywhere...

May 19th, 2009, 04:23 PM
Glatch is in MD

I doubt Shvedova will even get to FQR.

Tough draw for Simona :sad: She should have had a MDWC anyway

May 19th, 2009, 04:24 PM
I doubt Shvedova will even get to FQR.

I definitely doubt Bally will. Although if she can't with this draw she never will...

May 19th, 2009, 04:26 PM
winner of Shvedova vs Perry qualfies.

May 19th, 2009, 04:28 PM
Lena Bovina vs Malek :sobbing::scared:

May 19th, 2009, 04:29 PM
winner of Shvedova vs Perry qualfies.

Agree. And I think and hope it will be Yari. But still sad for Shenay. This draw sucks. :mad:

May 19th, 2009, 04:33 PM
Good draw for Mel :)

May 19th, 2009, 04:46 PM
Yeh its actually looking decent for Katie and Bally, who made the 2nd round in her last 2 slams losing to Zheng (SFist) and Mauresmo who ofc is a past champion..so lets hope the trend continues!

May 19th, 2009, 04:48 PM
Toughie for Halep especially considering that krajicek is starting to play better.

May 19th, 2009, 05:01 PM
Go Star:bounce:

May 19th, 2009, 05:08 PM
Polona, though first mach but you can do it!

Good luck spanish girls Estrella and Silvia :hearts:
Sesil you should pass this! :devil:

May 19th, 2009, 05:18 PM
At this point, if someone withdraws from the main draw, can Stéphanie Dubois still be promoted, and thus, Sharon Fichman be used as an ALT? It'd be a great scenario for Canadians!

Just Do It
May 19th, 2009, 05:21 PM
Anna Lapushchenkova RUS (9)
Sesil Karatantcheva KAZ

Sexy didnt make it :(

May 19th, 2009, 05:23 PM
Bally vs AnnaG :o
MEC is in a pretty good section :D
Vania & Nastja in one section :unsure:
Tomoko will be struggling to beat anyone :shrug:
Misa gets Halep :scared:
AnnaL gets Sesil :bigcry:
Youlia gets Su-Wei :o
Tadde gets Elena :mad:
Ksenia is in dreadful form :o

So let's start. :)

May 19th, 2009, 05:36 PM
I'm rooting all the way for Kimiko here, but getting past Dubois would be very tough. :sad: Good luck Kimiko anyway. :)

Malek vs. Bovina :o
Rus vs. Klepac :rolleyes:

May 19th, 2009, 05:40 PM
Good luck to Kimiko, Thunderous Sesil, Lena B, Misa & Rus.

May 19th, 2009, 06:01 PM
Glatch is in MD

Wow! That's surprising. How far down did they go for the cut-off?

May 19th, 2009, 06:07 PM
Good luck to Simona's Haleps®

May 19th, 2009, 06:21 PM

May 19th, 2009, 07:07 PM
Romina Oprandi ITA v Kimiko Date Krumm JPN

Oh...that's a shit draw! :sad: So sad that they met early in the tournament - think this ones gonna be a good match!!! :worship:

And I don't arrive in Paris until friday qualies :o

In The Zone
May 19th, 2009, 07:09 PM
Julie. :o If she can get past Wienerova, she could qualify. (I don't see her winning, though. :( )

May 19th, 2009, 07:49 PM
Good luck Misa & Michelle! :)

May 19th, 2009, 08:11 PM
Go Puchkova and Manasieva :)

A Magicman
May 19th, 2009, 08:18 PM
Allez Greta :-) You have beaten Dubois before. :rocker2:

May 19th, 2009, 08:19 PM
Good luck to Misa & Arantxa:angel:

May 19th, 2009, 10:18 PM
Mel should win her first two rounds easily. Camerin will be a test though.
Nice draw for Vania, but Sevastova will be tough in the last round, assuming they both make it there.
Lauren, Carly, and Madison all got winnable first rounds, but tougher roads ahead.

May 19th, 2009, 10:48 PM

May 19th, 2009, 10:49 PM

Main draw. ;)

May 19th, 2009, 10:59 PM

May 20th, 2009, 12:04 AM
only 2 aussies and they verse eachother :(

May 20th, 2009, 12:06 AM
i will be there for pics and videos :)

May 20th, 2009, 12:14 AM
Vita and Olga both have tough draws, although any draw for Olga is tough nowadays. :lol: But really, I don't even expect Vita to win a match, but if she does, she won't beat Misa/Simona on clay. :sad:

May 20th, 2009, 06:20 AM
Good luck:
Andrea Petkovic
Ekaterina Ivanova
Chin-Wei Chan
Neuza Silva
Yuliana Fedak
Vesna Manasieva
