I'm not sure how far Nastya will go, but I hope for her to get at least one good victory, i.e. a top ten player or someone really playing on form.

She needs something to get her confidence back and get this year really going.

Here's hoping she can have a good tournament. :yeah:

Well, today I hope that Kim wins in three (I´ve bet both on tourney winner and on sets). Come on KIM!!! :D ratio: 6.00 I need the money!!!!

:bounce: yeahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!! If my calculations are right, I will have 287,50 vbet-dollars!!! :lol:

and yeah...Nastya will lose to Bye in the first round;)

No, seriously, I have to see the draw first, there are some dangerous floaters, but I think third round.

Miami starts a period of time when Anastasia has almost nothing to defend.
Now she can make her move up the rankings.

_LuCaS_
Mar 20th, 2005, 06:38 PM
Right GL
This should be her schedule until RG:
Miami(I), Amelia Island(II), Chalrleston(I), Berlin(I), Rome(I).
Four tier 1 and a tier 2, tough schedule. Especially with the Belgians back.

jmcfarla
Mar 21st, 2005, 10:09 PM
Hopefully Nastya has managed to regain her form in her break, cause she is going to need it.
It doesn't look like Nastya is going to have any gimmies in Miami. Mirza, Clijsters & Lena D. in consecutive rounds would be really tough as all three have been in good form.
But if you are looking to win a big tournament like Miami (and Nastya should be) then avoiding the half with Venus, Serena, Maria & Justine is definitely the draw you want.

I think a QF would actually be an achievement for Nastya (i.e. beating Kim). But you never know a victory against someone like Kim could be the kick start that Nastya has been needing to get the year going. And if she made the QFs anything would be possible.

But first things first Nastya has to focus and take care of the early rounds, hopefully with a couple of impressive preformances to get the confidence back.

Almalyk
Mar 21st, 2005, 10:09 PM
I think Anastasia will be well rested for this. I think if she makes it through to the 4th round and beats Kim, it could be a turning point for her in 2005.

PaulHopkins
Mar 21st, 2005, 10:13 PM
I think Nastya needs a match against Kim to be honest to re-establish herself this season. I feel she needs at least two big victories - maybe Clijsters and Lena D are the wins she needs!

At least her draw is not as bad as Amy Frazier's. Frazier has a bye and then Clijsters.

I just hope Nastya can win some matches here. If she loses her first or second match it could be a very long year for her.

Theoretical path to the final
Anastasia Myskina

YAY!!!

Oh, she went to the dolphins again...she seems to like the dolphins.

Yep and Kim´s not even seeded (although she´s worth seeded Top Ten)...meaning IF Nastya goes out against her, the last win over a seeded player in a tourney was...well not in this year :eek: .

Although I have the feeling that Dechy might have something to say in this...Kims vs. Nathalie, I see a possible upset coming (I like Kim, but a revanche for Nastya wouldn´t be that bad)

Well for what it´s worth, it´s not Eurosport´s decision...I doubt there are quality cameras outside of center court and it´s the Miami people who do the schedule or maybe their affliates ESPN.

However, goldenlox, yes. Beating her good friend is a challenge for Nastya. I just hope she won´t feel pity for Kim in any way like she did last time when Kim had to call for the physio and totally blew a lead. Well, against Elena D. she always plays well...Kim already won IW last week, Nastya needs this win to gain confidence!

She can do this, I just hope her head goes with her game today!

I guess it has been that kind of year thus far. :eek:
And I keep telling myself this is just one of Nastya's slumps, but I guess the frustrating thing is that Nastya isn't even getting to lose to top players.

I know Kim is a top player, but in general this year Nastya isn't even getting far enough in tournaments to lose to the other seeds. (she only got to played Kim because of her unrealistic ranking). Nastya still has managed to even play a player ranked higher than her all season. :o (i think lindsay is the only other player on the whole tour who can say that).

With Kuznetsova out, Mauresmo in dodgey form, and Nastya's record against Lena, this was a real opportunity to turn her year around with at least a place in the final. :rolleyes:

Nastya really needs something, anything, to kick start her season. Hopefully the clay will offer some better form and some much needed results. :banghead:

Based on what? 2 victories over unknown players and a class-choke against Kim. She lacks the motivation this year. #1 is far away, the RG pressure is closing in. She needs a change. Another trainer maybe.

goldenlox
Mar 30th, 2005, 07:26 PM
They're not unknown players to me. And Kim is a very good player. I remember the '04 AO, when Anastasia couldn't force a third set against an injured Kim.
'04 turned out pretty good.

Losing early is not all bad. Anastasia was doing that last spring. It allows the player to get rest, physically and mentally. So when they play well, and have a good draw, they don't tire as quickly.

Nadia said that playing a lot of tennis is draining. Physically and mentally. And it weakens your immune system, so it's easy to get sick.

Anastasia has had time to recover from Fed Cup and the YEC last fall.
She should play better now.

_LuCaS_
Mar 30th, 2005, 07:46 PM
Actually she was complaining about the short break she had with the Fed Cup matches. She said she's just human, can't play 100% every time, like a robot.
She could have taken a longer break (skipping Sydney and HC). Instead she felt like she had a shot at #1 and pushed herself in order to achieve that.
"Workaholic Myskina eyes 1st spot" Her only motivation vanished into thin air. I hope she'll find another soon enough.

goldenlox
Mar 30th, 2005, 07:50 PM
She played Fed Cup and Hopman Cup because she loves to play for Russia.

Amy Frazier 6-2 6-3
Nathalie Dechy 6-0 6-2
Anastasia Myskina 6-3 6-4
Elena Dementieva 6-2 6-1
Amelie Mauresmo 6-1 6-0 ( :eek: )

So...is it just me or was it Nastya, who was the hardest opponent for her during this tourney? I could say that this will change in the final, but I bet my ass that Clijsters will roll past Sharapova.

CHEER UP PEOPLE!!! Of course it´s just stats, but in the end Nastya managed to win as much games in one match as Kloesel, Dechy, Dementieva and Mauresmo taken together ;) IF Nastya hadn´t stopped playing at 4-1 in the second it could have gone either way, so....imo she´ll be having a good clay season!

Maybe it could say "I need your support" Isn't that what she accuses Jens of not giving?

She had to motivate these outbursts somehow...she knows Jens can't do much from his seat during play.

i want to make a nastya t shirt with one of my pics. does anyone know what the words should say on it. :confused:

What about "Just shut the f*** up!" (just kidding)...maybe "I know I am a hard person" :kiss: ...quotes.

Uhhh...martirogi, I don´t know if you have already checked our site, cause you should take a look at the guestbook. They all love you for the pics and the report!

...and according to AFP and Tarpishchev, Nastya plays Fed Cup against Italy, Sharapova doesn´t.

If it already has been posted, I am sorry, I just got back home.

1st seeds Nadia and Meghann withdraw from AI, due to Meghann's injury. Nastya and Bepa could take advantage of this.
On the dark side, they could go very far in doubles too, and considering a long run by Anastasia I fear the worst.

Probably should have won that match. Doesn't bother me much since I really only care about her singles results. As long as she does semis or better in singles it will be a successful tournament.

Now she can focus on singles. She will have some tough cookies to crack. Raymond or Asagoe and after Martinez or Jankovic...

I didn't say it couldn't happen, but I really don't want to go into this :scared:
And Peer is not that easy. She has nothing to lose.

I think all these games will be a very good measure of the state of her form and where can she get from here...

Yep, she got a lucky wildcard and I am sure she will try everything to make the crowd think she deserved that one. But well...I don´t see a problem for Nastya and if so, I am gonna kick her ass.

QF!!! I want a new avatar!!! ;)

However, I think that Miami showed that she´s back on track (and no, I just don´t count uber-player Kim Clijsters)

Big match today. It's important to not go down quickly on clay.

If Nastya loses then I lose 400 vcash and more seriously will doubt her desire to win this year.
