View Full Version : Lovely Lena's US Open Draw...

Aug 20th, 2003, 07:28 PM
(16) Elena Bovina vs. Ludmila Cervanova
Dinara Safina vs. Carly Gullickson
Samantha Reeves vs. Iveta Benesova
Claudine Schaul vs. (21) Anna Pistolesi

(32) Marie-Gaianeh Mikaelian vs. Marlene Weingartner
Qualifier vs. Saori Obata
Dally Randriantefy vs. Silvija Talaja
Qualifier vs. (2) Justine Henin-Hardenne

Decent draw for Lena.

1R- Cervanova should be little trouble on hard...

2R- Safina is talented, but has yet to prove she can beat the top players, or handle the power to compete against them.

3R- Anna P is hot lately, but she was very lucky to beat Vera this week. If Lena plays her game, she should get through.

4R- Lena loses to Justine. :sad:

I'd be happy with a 4th round performance. :) It would save some of the huge points she'll lose from last year.

Let me guess, the spanish girl was banned?
No excuses not to get Anna P. But this Anna scares me.
First things first. Tonight we get to see Lena!!

I've changed my opinion. Bring on Anna P.
But first, Cervanova.
Even if Lena plays Justine, I'm not sure I'll get it on U.S. tv.
So Lena has to win, win, win, ... so I can see her.
Allez Lena!!

Lena played so well against Jenn. I didn't get to see any of this match, but I assume Lena is healthy.
I hope Lena shakes this off and goes on to play more matches like she did in Toronto and New Haven.
I'm not jumping ship. I never will. So keep trying. That's all I ask.

Lena and Rennae won their first round match 1 & 2.
Next, Bedanova and Tatarkova.
Lena could go far in doubles with Rennae.
Go Lena!

Lena and Rennae won 7-6(4), 6-1.
Third round opponents, Nadya and Pierce.

A good win for Rennae and Lena over an impressive team.

Lena is out of the U.S. Open. Suarez and VRP beat Lena and Rennae in the quarters.
What a nightmare tournament this was. How is Lena going to make the Fed Cup team and the Olympic team now?
