Both girls played lots of matches lately.

Aravane is very confident, I hope she will play at 100% despite the ammount of recent matches. She must play well at the very begining and not wait the middle of the second set to wake up like vs Hercog (back from 4/6 0/2) and vs Niculescu last week (back from 0/6 0/1) :lol:

Concerning Michelle, she impressed me against Zheng.

I vote Aravane :hearts:

I think Rezai will win, but the winner gets Dinara, so a tough section

Never seen Shrieky McNoiseBox play before, so I am curious to see what the commotion is about. Nevertheless, I'd have to go with Aravane in front of her crowd and playing as well as she is at present. Take it to her, Aravane!

After beating a player like Zheng, Rezai is easy picking. Plus, she's tired from Strasbourg (I hope)

I honestly don't know. But I do know that I will probably never root harder for Aravane to win a match.

Good luck Aravane. Bring earplugs with you. :yeah:

Shrieky McNoisybox will probably fall to Rezai this time. Rezai seems to be on good form right now and obviously isn't phased by the pressure of playing at home after winning last week in Strasbourg.

Aravane in 2

Aravane will win. Michelle Louder de Brito's stats against Zheng were rubbish. She hit about 30-35 unforced errors compared to 17 or so winners.

Especially in front of a home crowd and her current form, Aravane will win in straight sets.

Wow--she's barely 16 and already has a ton of nicknames:

the Burrito
Shrieky McNoisybox
Louder de Brito
the Screaming Burrito


Not bad for 16. By the time she's 18 no one will remember her real name, lol!

I'm not French. I might like some French players, but certainly not all. I do like 1960s French pop and 1960s French cinema too. I like French impressionist art too. But I'm not French. ;) And any rooting by me for Rezai has nothing to do with national loyalties.

And Michelle Larcher de Banshee :worship: with her amazing Yell of Hell :bowdown:

Back on topic... Aravane in straights. 6-3 6-2. While I want Aravane to win, I'd like to see what Dinara would do with Michelle's screaming - appeal to the umpire? Hit the ball right at her? 'VAMOS' her off the court? Destroy her racket (over her head)? Would be good drama.

I was not sure of the meaning of your post cause it's not the kind of things I'd expect from him.I dunno what was the problem between you and him, but I agree that Aravane is as French as the others (same goes for Pierce, Golovin etc... imho).

WTF are you talking about? I do not know where you are from and I don't care. I don't tell anyone from any country what country they should support and the fact that I like French pop music or movies or art has nothing to do with me knowing about or not knowing about French history. Nor does it reflect that I do or don't regard France as a multicultural country. For what it is worth, I do regard France as a multicultural country and coming from another multicultural country, Great Britain, I can say I do embrace multicultural society in general.

I also don't know what drugs you are on but I certainly do know I do not wish to have any myself.

Michelle seems to love the big moment so I give her a decent shot. And she's got game but Rezai seems to enjoy the clay more while based on her awful results coming in Burrito seems to struggle on clay.

Me either, but it sounds like something got lost in translation. You're straight up, Chris. I don't think you'd ever say anything like that.

But the point we're all missing here is that you absolutely cannot BEAT a Persian with a French accent. That's so unfairly sexy it's....it's....unfair.....

Aravane, please marry me!

But beat El Shrieko, first.

Ah....I have read you post again and I think I understand what you are thinking now. Okay. Let me try to explain this carefully.

1st, yes, Rezai is a French as any other player that plays for France, regardless or where they were born or what their racial background is.

When I say that I was supporting Rezai it had nothing to do with any national loyalties I meant just that. Although I like French pop music, movies and art I don't support any French players, regardless of whether their ethic background is French, simply because they are French. Some French players I like, some less so. My point is was simply just because I like French pop music doesn't mean I like French tennis players automatically. Nothing more than that. I do like a number of French players but not because of their nationality or because of any racial background. I certainly do not dislike any player because of their racial or national background. Some of the French players I like are from other ethnic backgrounds some are not. None of this should matter and I am only spelling this out to clarify things for one rather strange poster who has made some very bizarre misconceptions.

Good explanation.

I am an American, born in Trinidad, with English ancestry, and all of my favorite players are foreign. I guess to some that makes me unpatriotic, but to them I humbly offer a middle finger. Too much nationalism in the world to let it interfere in tennis. We like what we like.

No, I don't think he/she mistook me for another poster. I think he/she just quite bizarrely misinterpreted what I said. I think in assuming I am a Francophile, which to a degree I am in that I do like quite a lot of French culture, although I like quite a bit of many other cultures too, he/she assumed that I like all things French and all players French. Which is certainly not true. Heck I don't even like all 1960s French pop. Serge Gainsbourg, Francoise Hardy...:yeah:. Johnny Haliday, Sylvie Vartan...:o. Furthermore I think somehow he/she interpreted my comment "And any rooting by me for Rezai has nothing to do with national loyalties" as meaning that I support other French players because of my loyalties to France but not Rezai.

Obviously this is not what I was saying. Infact I don't support any French players because of any French loyalty not just Rezai, for the simple reason that I don't have any emotional automatic aligence to France, I just like quite a few French things.

It not really a big deal. But I'm never fond of being misinterpreted, and especially in the manner that individual did.

The way the post was written I thought that maybe you had an argument before (and reading you first post i dunno how anyone could have come up with the conclusion that you were disliking Aravane because she had Iranian's roots ??!).
Just a case of bad traduction I guess.Forget it.

PS : loved the comment on Halliday (he's like a god in France :o)and Vartan :haha:(and Gainsbourg was a genius :cool:)

Rezai "should" win this match. She is the high ranked player, she is going to have the crowd for her, in her home country. They played in Miami and Rezai won confortably. But so did Zheng in her previous match with Michelle.
