I hate matches between 2 players of the same country in the first round! Except for when you're from Russia or the US and have 50 players in the draws, you don't want anyone from your country to lose in the first round, so you can't really root for your favourite :( It's happened a couple of times in the mens tournaments with Dutchies, I really didn't like these matches!

I just hope Amanda will win that match, and hopefully easy! Same for MGM of course :)

LOL, that's what i always think when people are complaining about, say, bovina meeting zvonareva in the first round, it's like: no wonder when there are so many of them around. ;)

I was wondering what it was, I hoped it was "just" a sprained ankle or something ;)

This indeed doesn't sound good at all :sad: Really hope she gets well soon!

from the website of swiss newspaper tagesanzeiger:

Das «Romandie-Derby» bei den Frauen endete unerwartet einseitig. Emmanuelle Gagliardi (WTA 60) führte gegen Marie-Gaïané Mikaelian (WTA 36) 6:1, 3:0, als die Waadtländerin überraschend aufgab. Mikaelian löste das Geheimnis an der Pressekonferenz auf: «Ich habe einen Ermüdungsbruch in einer Rippe und kann kaum atmen.»

Mikaelian hatte schon Probleme an der Gold Coast gehabt, kam dann dort aber dennoch ins Final. Eine Röntgenuntersuchung am Montag brachte dann den Befund. «Jetzt muss ich wohl sicher einen Monat pausieren», sagte Mikaelian mit leiser Stimme.

Trotz des unschönen Endes durfte sich Gagliardi redlich über den ersten Sieg an einem Grand-Slam-Turnier unter ihrem neuen Coach Eric van Harpen freuen, nachdem sie bei der gemeinsamen Premiere in Auckland schon den Halbfinal erreicht hatte. Sie spielte gestern offensiv und variantenreicher als früher und wirkte ausgeglichener.

«Es war mit 26 Jahren Zeit etwas zu ändern. Eric will nicht mein Tennis ändern aber wir arbeiten hart an den Details», begründete Gagliardi den Wechsel von Francesco Restelli zum holländischen Schleifer. Nächste Gegnerin Gagliardis ist die letztjährige Aufsteigerin Anastasia Myskina (Russ/8).



get well, MARIE!

Yeah, well I'm going there one day only (it's so expensive!), so I'll only see 2 quarterfinals. But it would be great if I saw Marie, cos I 'discovered' her in Antwerp last year when I saw her match against Dechy!

i remember you talking about that match.

yeah, tennis tournaments are horribly expensive, aren't they? i went to see all of swisscom challenge, but it was a real luxury, kind of an early christmas present to myself. ;) if i'll go again i'll probably only be able to go for one or two days. it's a real pity.
