I may be biased, but the top half seems to be much stronger than the bottom one. very unbalanced.

Jan 20th, 2002, 09:46 PM
Didn't you forget someone KC ;) ?

Good luck to :

Marion Bartoli
Su Wei Hsieh
Angelique Widjaia

(the 3 of them need some victories after the women singles event).

Let's not forget the boys :

Richard Gasquet
Jo-Wilfried Tsonga

I hope they will do well at the A O.

Jo-Wilfried poweful game should do some damage.

I also saw a certain Wang-Cheng Hsieh (TPE). Is he related to Su Wei?

I hope not, Steve.;)

I guess Petra and Lucie are too far away to play at Aussie Open.:(

Shuai is probably training intesively somewhere. :rolleyes:

Jan 21st, 2002, 05:33 PM
goodluck angie!!!

Jan 22nd, 2002, 04:52 PM
Olga Puchkova won 6-1 7-5 :)very impressive as well, glad she won in two as she runs out of puff in 3rd.

she struck some great winners on both sides.

Vera Douchevina 6-2 4-3 up overnight. quite close but Kelly is making more UE's, Vera should close it out tomorrow am 6-3/4 in two sets.

Nina got demolished :sad: 1-6 2-6 :( Zsuzanna served great over 80% in, Nina' just wasn't herself today, timing it badly and was late into alot of balls.

Elke Clijsters was very impressive, totally blitzed her opponent. looks like she's got over her injuries.

Babos serve is HUGE!:eek:

OLGA is finally living up to nejedlykanepi's expectations!;) Too bad he's not here.:o

Jan 23rd, 2002, 04:33 AM
Glad to hear Elke is playing great, I'm sure she has top100 potential.

She is only training seriously since 3 months after all her injuries and a loss of interest in tennis

Jan 23rd, 2002, 09:42 AM
Vera as expected won pretty comfy, took her 5 mins to win the two games she needed.

well done :)

Sveta was very impressive again but thats expected of her.

Sharky started slow, match was full of errors , both Maria and Jamea very quick of the mark but Maria has a bit more quality about her, ran Jamea ragged.

damn i jinxed Dubravca :rolleyes:
match got on a bit earlier due to boys match finishing quick.
Dubravca was 4-0 up in 2nd and went onto win that 6-2. but lost her opening serve and was never in it after that. :sad:

Tatiana Golovin played not bad but had her shaky moments against Iryna but her greater weight of shot told in end.

Joanna Sakowicz blew it :( led 3-2 in 3rd with a break and lost last 4 games, just made too many errors.

Cory Ann Avants ..... was 1-5 down but went on to win 7-5 6-0.

Gisela was far too strong for Da-Jung, had a little too much power from the little i saw of that

Jan 23rd, 2002, 08:29 PM

Can you tell me a little about Ally Baker and Jamea's game. Jamea seemed to be in every game, but couldnt win the big points. Also, did Joana fall apart or did Ally lift her game.

Jan 23rd, 2002, 09:05 PM
Eggy, Maria is going to have to play much better if she is to avoid being crushed once again by the "Russian Wrecking Ball" Myriam Casanova. Right?

Udachi Masha, Tatiana and Vera!

Jan 24th, 2002, 01:41 AM
Myriam has grown up since the played in 2000, Maria is still a little girl so it will be hard, but I'm sure she will do better than on Saturday.

Ally v Joanna match, it was a bit of both really but Joanna did quite a few doubles near end when it got tight sadly for me :sad:

Jan 24th, 2002, 03:18 AM
Thanks TBE. Has Jamea grown at all? Also, how is her serve. Sorry for all the questions, but we don't get to see any Junior tennis here in NY until the OPEN.
