Amanda stormed into the quarterfinals of the Kremlin Cup today after upsetting the world no.5 and defending champion Jelena Dokic in three sets 7-6 (1) 3-6 6-3
What a great win by Mandy, her first win over a top 5 player since May 2000, and her first win over a top tenner since March 2002 :)
And the added upside is that with this win she is likely to be back inside the top 20 (haven't checked out all the maths yet ;) )
We always believed in you Amanda :kiss:
And their is still more work to be done this week when she takes on either Petrova or Kournikova for a place in her first semifinal of this season!
What a fighter :hearts:
Its time to celebrate :bounce:

allegra...its always great to see new amanda fans on the board :kiss:
So where abouts do you come from in NZ? Yes the rugby should be a great match, but the league isn't all too big in Melbourne ( AFL is our go ;) ) so I don't really follow it to closely ;)
Well now you know this place is here, so you are always welcome and as I said before, the more posts the merrier :)

Hey TennisAddict Look where I come form Aoteroa (land of the long white cloud) they call it that because of the long cloud that hangs over Aoraki (mt cook)

Mandy! You made my week, specially with Marti and Farina losing early.:( You have a hopefully easy QF, does anyone know if
Anna-Amanda have ever played?
LOL! Rob, you have to stop stealing my faves! Marti, Mandy, Patty top my list, along with Farina Elia and Rubin.:bounce:
Oct 3rd, 2002, 03:41 AM
Coetzer and Kournikova have played 9 times since 1996, where Amanda has a whopping 9-2 record over them. The last time they played was in 2001 at Zurich, it was 1st Round where Coetzer won 6-0 4-6 6-3.
So on the statistics wise, Coetzer looks good to beat Kounikova this time around, Anna also has an injury :( But should have a 50/50 chance of making it, she has to win agains't Nadia Petrova, if Injury doesn't go her way, Coetzer is likley to face Nadia Petrova.
Coetzer has only played Petrova once at Amelia Islan last year, Coetzer also won that meeting 4-6 7-5 6-4
So things look good for Amanda :) to make a semi final's berth probably agasint'y Lindsay Davenport ;)
Oct 3rd, 2002, 03:55 AM
Thanks fo the stats, Allegra...I knew amanda had a great record against anna :)'
It does look like Amanda will be playing petrova though which will be tougher, Petrova has the ability to overpower amanda :( Their last meeting was very close and amanda was down 2-4 0-40 in the second set :eek:
Thanks for informing me about the long white cloud ;) and yes Sunline is very cool :cool: She lost on Saturday :( but hopefully she will bounce right back and be in contention for a third Cox Plate :D
Hi Ryan, Bram, Periodic :wavey: and yes Linda it is great to see other amanda fans in here finally :) We are not alone anymore ;)
Oct 3rd, 2002, 08:21 AM
I'm not new here, just never posted before. So I decided to add my 5 cents. Congratulations to Amanda. What a great win over the third seed, defending champ and world number 5. It has been a year where Amanda has had to fight but fight she has. We can all be very proud. It seems whenever she looks down and out she manages to get herself back up. Just like her game style, she is a true fighter.
Oct 3rd, 2002, 08:34 AM
hey red rocket :wavey:
Nice Post :)
Linda, just because you know more languages than me doesn't mean you have to act superior :p
Oct 3rd, 2002, 09:52 AM
Here is nina_rus' summary of the match from AtP world
I also saw the third set of Coetzer vs Dokic
Jelena didn't play badly but Amanda was better, she was running from corner to corner, getting to every shot, hitting slices all the time (a lot from the forehand), that Jelena had problems with, she was forced to make errrors. And Amanda didn't seem to have any problems with Jelena's serve today...
Sounds good :)
Its a shame that this victory has been soured by talk of retirement :sad:
By the way amanda faces Nadia Petrova in the quarters tommorrow after the withdrawal of Anna K. This will be a tough match for Amanda, and I would have rather seen her face Anna. I saw the match at amelia island 2001 and Nadia is very powerful. if any of you can remember she was the one who rudely commented that Amanda disappointed her by playing moonballs :rolleyes: I hope amanda can kick her butt again ;)
Oct 3rd, 2002, 05:11 PM
I never acted superior, Rob :angel:
Sounds good indeed, lets hope she can keep that kind of play up against Petrova. Isn't "semis" a wonderful word to hear?;)
Oct 3rd, 2002, 05:11 PM
GOOD LUCK AMANDA!!!
Oct 4th, 2002, 08:23 AM
Well Amanda has just made her first semi of the year. And its at a Tier 1. Who would of thought. She just beat Nadia Petrova 6-2 6-1. That is absolutley amazing although from the stats it seems that Petrova wasn't playing so good. But that don't matter cos Amanda is through and that is really great for her.
Oct 4th, 2002, 08:27 AM
Yep ,great win by Amanda. I am not sure about these stats though, I think they count every error as an unforced error and where are the winners? :confused:
Lets just leave it as a great win :)
Oct 4th, 2002, 12:30 PM
yeah, what the heck stats! The score looks great :bounce:
