Might as well start her cheering thread to keep the posts # going....
This is her section of the draw:
Elena Bovina (13) vs bye
Q vs Yoon Jeong Cho
Maria Sharapova vs Q
Paola SUarez (20) vs bye
What do you guys think? It'll be a tuff feat if she beats Cho, then its an easy road to the 4th round IMO. She might have a Davenport Quarters!! Why do they always meet? :rolleyes:

Thanks for starting this. :) I would have but I'm doing stuff for the site.
I'm glad Lena plays Cho in her first match. It's a good test for her, and good sign to see if she really is struggling with her game. Cho has had good results in Auckland and Memphis... but much like against Schiavone, if Lena is playing well, and doesn't make error after error, she'll get through this match.
Lena got a good draw in the 3rd round... Suarez only wins on clay, and Maria. I'd personally like to see Lena crush pretty little Maria, and show her who the Russian Princess is. :)
4th round- THE MATCHUP OF THE MONSTERS, ROUND 4! I'd love to see them play again. Lena's come so close in all 3 matches. If both are hitting it well... it would be an awesome match.
After that... Amelie possibly in the quarters, and Jenny or Nastya in the semis.
It's not the easiest draw... but if Lena plays well, she can beat these girls.

Elena can definitly win this tournament if she plays at her best!! Com'on Lena get revenge! :bounce:

the draw isn't that bad, but also not GREAT.. but if she plays well (like she normally does ;)) she has a chance of making the quarters or further, even winning this, maybe like Hantuchova last year, a start of the raising in the rankings to the top 10 :D!
Good Luck Lena!

Yoon Jeong is a tough first match opponent. If she can squeeze through that she's more than capable of beating Lindsay. Go Lena! :D

Geez, Vera had prospects of facing Cho 2nd round for two tournaments, and now Bovina faces Cho 2nd round. maann...i hope Lena don't choke like Vera did.

She is playing doubles with Stubbs
their first round opponents are Loit/Dechy, not easy..
Does anyone know if Henin and Elena will team up again if they're in the same tournaments? they were a strong team! :D , I know Justine had some problems with her shoulder lately, but I hope it's over, so they can play doubles together again!
