Which one would you prefer in regard of Lina-Nadya match?
Two pairs of choices..
1) a) Nadya wins, she goes all the way and qualifies for YEC for the first time.
b) Lina wins her first tournament
2) a) Nadya wins and loses to Nastya or Elena B. in semis, still having a shot for YEC in Advanta.
b) Lina wins and loses to Nastya or Elena B. in semis, but improves her rankings.
My choice is 1b) and 2a)

heart says Lina, head says Lina too.
going for 1b and 2b
Lina needs some backup pts for her Toronto and this is a good time and last effort for 2003.

Lina isn't going to win unless Nadia has one of her braindead matches.
Lina needs it more, however... she better start winning matches now... because she has some decent points to defend in Tokyo, Dubai, Doha...
I want Lina to lose though... then Eggy will be sad.

1a & 2a

1B and 2B. Go for the collective thing, many Russians as highly ranked as possible.

1a - Lina will have her time

1b and 2b
I am highly skeptical that Petrova will make it to LA, I don't know why, but I feel that she would fall short even if she won the match tomorrow.
I hope Lina wins, because she needs a boost and this is a perfect time to boost that ranking and ensure a decent seed at AO.
Good luck Lina! :)

petrova hasn't won her first title yet either. at the moment i don't mind whether nadia reaches the YEC, i'm more into her reaching the top 10. i think lina needs it more just so she picks up her game so i'd have to go with 1b and 2a.

Lina is my 2nd favourite player and Nadya is not the 1st. :) So my choice is quite obvious. 1b, 2b.
Oct 21st, 2003, 03:43 PM
I think 1a) and 2a). :D

1a) and that's all ;)
Nadya needs to take allways more self-confidence and start to win tournaments.
She's really gifted, sometimes bright so I'd like to see her coming at net in more clever ways and show her full potential.
So Nadya, be aware of Lina she can play well when she focus !

1b or 2b... Lina needs this win more, and I'd rather Vera went to YEC than Nadia.
