I hope Ting can handle Maria.K ..... steve what do you think?
If Ting has the power like her sister she maybe has a chance....
Tian Tian and Jie should win. Zi has her hands full.... i have seen Rao and she's very good.

Ting had very few weapons to beat Maria, after watching both players already (Ting in Hochiminh City, Maria in Pattaya). Ting's chance would have been to take the net as often as possible as she could not have won points at the back of the court.

But she is a bit slow to serve and volley.

I am now looking forward to today next matches results.

BTW, when I access today results, I got a warning from NAV that there's a virus named HTML.Redlof.A :o .

So better be careful when accessing today results on the wtaindianopen.org site that you have a good antivirus.

half respectable score Ting. Steve, she must have done something right. ;)
I hope Tian Tian can win she had a great end last year, she appeared to be in good form. I have NO idea how she plays. But i hope she can qualify! :)

Anyway, I don't know yet the result of Zi match. But if she happened to win, she'll have to use a different tactics than what Ting could have used. Because they are both different types of players :) .

Q3 matches will therefore be, if not mistaken :

Olga Kalyuzhnaya vs. Jie Zheng
Yulia Beygelzimer vs. Tian-Tian Sun
Manisha Malhotra vs. Jin Hee Kim
Zi Yan vs. Maria Kirilenko

Chinese players are doing well so far (if there is no more change in the results :rolleyes: ).

Hey guys,

I just got to my computer and saw these results. Oh well 3 out out of 4 Indians lost. :( Not totally unexpected but one can hope for the best. Hopefully Manisha makes it to the main draw.

Manisha :)
Maria :)
Rushmi, Archana and Isha :(
Sunitha :(

As for the website, I was in touch with the guys that are keeping it up to date for yesterday's results (see quali draw for what happened :) ) Anyway, basically it was the first day and so they overlooked a couple of things. Also they said they would atleast update the scores from today onwards 2-3 times a day and they will try and have live scores from Monday onwards. First time for them so they are keeping their fingers crossed that it goes smoothly.

SteveG: I have informed them about the possible virus so that should be resolved fairly quickly.

Steveg
Feb 2nd, 2003, 11:33 AM
Thanks Dhruv :) . They are indeed doing great for a first time : the website is updated fairly quickly (at least within the day). Just that I am a bit impatient to get the results of the Chinese players ;) .

As for the virus, it has been found out by another poster using another antivirus program...

It would be great to have live scores for the final qualifying matches :D .

Great job for the first time I think . It's just barely 18:00 in India so I would imagine they updated the site pretty much within a hour or two of the matches being completed.
Yesterday the matches only ended at closer to 20:00 and as they posted the results only after all the matches were over, it took a while before we got them.

PS: Look at what the poor people following the Open Gaz de France are going through for quali results and that is a $585 000 (Tier II) tourney compared to this $140 000(Tier IV)

From the website :

The biggest upset of the day was the departure of Sunitha Rao (US) from the tournament, who was expected to make it to the main draw and lost in a grueling three setter to Zi Yan (CHN). No upset for me :) . And they obviously expected Sunitha Rao to beat easily Maria in the third round :rolleyes: .

Morigami Akiko / Obata Saori d. Jeon Mi-Ra / TakeMura Ryoko 8-4 :sad:

Bondarenko Alyona / Bondarenko Valeria d. Lakhani Isha / Vakharia Megha 8-3
