View Full Version : Paola Suarez in New York

Aug 19th, 2003, 01:11 PM
We expect a great tournament for her
after Vienna, Wimbledon and Toronto
Give us a 4th round or QF or maybe more
come on girl

Aug 19th, 2003, 01:20 PM
She lost Cho in 2nd round in 2002
we want more in this special 2003

Aug 20th, 2003, 08:30 PM
i think Paola has a very good draw for arrive to the 2nd week
do you think so?

Aug 22nd, 2003, 05:39 AM
Good lick to Paola :D!

Aug 22nd, 2003, 06:29 AM
Yes, pretty good draw. In 1st round she will face Angelica Roesch, then in 2nd the winner of Ondraskova vs qualifier, and the tough round is the 3rd where she has to face most likely Cochita Martinez, and then in 4th probably Rubin and if I keep dreaming she will face Davenport in QF ;)

Go Paola, do your best baby!!! :bounce: :wavey: :bounce:

Aug 22nd, 2003, 08:35 AM
Good luck Paola, too bad she's in the same section that Conchi :mad:

Aug 22nd, 2003, 03:59 PM

Aug 26th, 2003, 12:13 PM
Nice win yesterday. Good luck to Paola for the next round! Vamos! :D

Aug 26th, 2003, 01:33 PM
Great win Paola :) Play your best tennis in NY :)

Aug 26th, 2003, 02:28 PM
I think Paola has the best chance to go far in this slam, IN SINGLES, as the williams sisters are gone. Just the same for doubles lol, where with the absence of the williams sisters, Paola/Virginia were able to win last year's US OPen even though they are best on clay.

Aug 26th, 2003, 02:36 PM
I'm really hoping for a repeat of last year...Go Paola/Vivi :)

Aug 26th, 2003, 04:16 PM
:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Aug 26th, 2003, 07:57 PM
I agree, she is playing really great in singles and in hardcourt too. I´m sure she´ll be alive in the second week and perhaps she can reach semis... or more! :)

Aug 26th, 2003, 11:18 PM
Considering the year she's had-- what with sitting at #14 in the total Race points as of last week, ahead of, among others, Myskina, Hantuchova, and Maleeva-- and with Rubin losing on Monday, I'm feeling pretty confident that Suarez is going deep into this US Open draw.

Her section of the draw is really one of the most wide-open, with 12-Martinez as the highest remaining seeded player, and that's definitely a winnable third-round match for Suarez. And, with Davenport's health status on something of a day-by-day watch, Suarez really has an excellent opportunity here. In cbpoulin's prediction game, I have Suarez reaching the quarterfinals, which I think is a realistic result for her.

Aug 27th, 2003, 12:14 AM
:) Pao

Aug 27th, 2003, 01:17 AM
step by step Pao
beat tomorrow Milagros and then go for more

Aug 27th, 2003, 02:20 AM
Vamos, Poli! (success could not happen to a nucer person!)

Aug 27th, 2003, 06:56 AM
I hope she can gives us a big surprise! :angel:

Vamos Paola! :wavey:

Aug 27th, 2003, 08:38 AM
I pray for Vivi's and Poli's victory in doubles against :fiery:Kim and Ai:fiery:

Aug 27th, 2003, 10:33 PM
Great win for Paola today, (6-1, 6-0 against Sequera). :worship: Best of luck in the next round and, of course, in the doubles and mixed! :D

Aug 27th, 2003, 10:56 PM
Vamos Paola!!!!

Aug 28th, 2003, 01:34 AM
Vamos Paola!!! Great win today over Sequera. I saw the statistics and it didn't really look like a 6/1 6/0, she had a very low amount of winners, just like in the match with Roesch, but well, she won and that's what counts. Now she'll have to face Molik and, if she wins, which is very possible, she'll probably face Zuluaga, who she has a negative face-to-face record with, but still, i think she could manage her way to the QF. Vamos Poly! :kiss:

Aug 28th, 2003, 02:27 AM
Come Girl
Make Another Step With Molik
You Can Do It

Aug 28th, 2003, 07:11 AM

Vamos Poly! :kiss:

I was at my job watching the "Real Time Scoreboard" and I saw she made many double faults. But she hold every break point and she won for that amazing score!
I think that wll bring her a lot of confidence!!
I also think she has an open draw but in WTA you see surprises every day, she has to take care about young rising players.
As Mauro said here "step by step Poli!!

Next match: Alicia Molik

Aug 28th, 2003, 09:41 AM
Vamos Paola I hope you can beat Molik, and give me some revenge for Conchi's lost, I prefered you to play her so one of you was in 4th round :mad:
Anyway make your match a nightmare for Alicia :devil:
Good luck in doubles with Vivi too!!!!:bounce:

Aug 28th, 2003, 11:57 AM
Seeds are falling; this is Paola's chance :D!

Aug 28th, 2003, 01:48 PM

Aug 29th, 2003, 06:37 AM
paola is going DOWN DOWN and OUT

Aug 29th, 2003, 11:04 AM
If Paola win today over Molik she reach the 4 rd so she get 90 points more 4 for the triumph over Roesch, 8 for the triumph over Sequera and if she win 20 for the posssible triumph over Molik.
If she win today has 1322 point, the number 21 spot in the ranking and Dokic had only 9 points more in the number 20.
come on Paola win today

Aug 29th, 2003, 11:06 AM

Aug 30th, 2003, 06:47 AM
Paola is now #21, but I think she can win vs Elena.

The head to head record says Elena "should" win cos she leads 4-1 but Paola beat her this year at Amelia Island, so she can beat her at the Open too.

Go Paola!!! :wavey:

Aug 30th, 2003, 10:53 AM

Paola is a very good player
and i hope that and more

Sep 1st, 2003, 02:07 AM
Lindsay Davenport is not 100% ok and she had a very tough match today.
I really think Paola will defeat her.

Paola has withdrawn from mixed doubles, I think she wants to save energy to keep her excellent singles tournament and also to defend the doubles title 2002.

Transcribed Interview


THE MODERATOR: Questions, please.

Q. How were you able to maintain your composure and concentration very deep in the third set? You were down a break.

PAOLA SUAREZ: Yeah, I mean, yeah, she break me in the third set, but I try to keep concentrate, you know, and play every point. I knew that it is tough for both of us, you know, to quarterfinal and to try to not get nervous, you know.

When she was a little bit tight on the important moment, I try to keep going.

Q. How do you explain that your play this summer, the last couple months, has been so good in singles as opposed to the rest of the year?

PAOLA SUAREZ: Yeah. I think I start to play -- this year for me was really good, you know. I think it's the best year for me, you know, because I can play -- I play all the tournaments at a good level. I feel my confidence every tournament, you know. Was the first time in all the Grand Slam I do more than third round. It's really - how do you call? - Same level, equal, yeah.

Q. Why do you think that is? Why at age 27 are you having your best year?

PAOLA SUAREZ: Yeah, I think I have a lot of experience now, you know. Mentally, I'm more strong, you know. I think now I can -- I think that I can play with like a good level, you know, and I believe myself more than other years.

Q. You mentioned mentally strong. How much mental toughness did it take in that last game with all the deuces, all the matchpoints?

PAOLA SUAREZ: Yeah. It's just to try to play every point. I'm not thinking about the result, you know. It's just playing the point and try to win each point. That's it.

Q. Do you maybe have more desire now to win in singles because you know when you're 27 that you don't have as many years left to be very successful?

PAOLA SUAREZ: I don't know. I don't think that I wait until 27 to try to win a match, you know. I think it's like this.

Yeah, I try to keep going like this and try to play in the better I can do, you know, all the other years that I'm gonna play.

Q. As great a doubles player as you are, in singles, why don't we see you at the net more?

PAOLA SUAREZ: (Laughing). Because in the doubles, I think that our key is not the net, is the baseline.

I think, yeah, doubles, we play really good, we return good.

Q. In doubles you volley well when you're given the volleys.


Q. You don't have as much faith in singles that you can --

PAOLA SUAREZ: Yeah, I think it's different tactic, you know. Some players have facility to go to the net; other players stay in the back.

Q. Is there anything special, what you were trying to do today?

PAOLA SUAREZ: Anything special?

Q. Yes.

PAOLA SUAREZ: Yeah, I try to be aggressive today, you know, because she play really good when she's inside the court, you know, when she's, yeah, inside the court.

In the end I try to lob her a little bit because I didn't do too much this in all the games. I know that if I lob her from her forehand, is gonna be good for me. And when she's tight, it's good, that shot.

But I just -- I was focus, you know, on every point, yeah.

Vamos Paola! :worship:

I don't think she has a lot of chances versus Lindsay, even if she's injured, but hey, she's got nothing to loose and Davenport might feel a bit pressured if Paola takes the advantage on the match.
After all, she did push her to the third set a couple of weeks ago.

Sep 3rd, 2003, 12:24 AM

Sep 3rd, 2003, 05:20 AM

Anyway, This is an awesome tournament for Paola. She has reached the top 20 for the first time in her career and playing good tennis on hardcourts.

She has a lot of chances to get into the race. The has practically nothing to defend for the rest of the season, I hope she can play as she is doing right now.
