similar same small expectations like last year, when MARLENE kicked CAPRIATI. but german underdogs did well the last years in melbourne:

2000 KANDARR
2001 RITTNER
2002 WEINGÄRTNER
2003 WEINGÄRTNER, BARNA

let's hope for another nice result in 2004! :D

we will have just 2 girls in Maindraw

Barna and Weingärtner

Schruff
Grönefeld
Rittner
Klösel
Gehrlein
Lamade
Barna
Dübbers

and maybe
Rösch
Bachmann will have to play Qualifiyng

so it will be hard to have a good result from the german girls


my hopes are
Anca can play on her level
Marlene can continue her great AUS-Open Results
Anna-Lena qualify for her first GS Maindraw

Lamade can win 1 match in qualifying ;)

Marlene needs a good draw to defend a few points, the same for Anca. I hope Anna-Lena survives the quali-tournament and will kick some ass down under!

Go girls!

... die Hoffnung stirbt zuletzt.


Viel, viel Glück allen Deutschen Mädchen ! Bitte mindestens ein nennenswertes, positives Ergebnis (an mehr wage ich gar nicht mehr zu denken nach Anca's VF-Aus in Hobart ...)

Und hoffentlich gehts Marlene bis Montag/Dienstag nächste Woche wieder besser (scheiß Bauchmuskelzerrung vor ihrem Lieblingsturnier)

es ist schon so ärgerlich, dass JULIA und ALG jetzt doch nur so knapp am diekten hauptfeld vorbeigeschrammt sind. :mad:

es wäre natürlich falsch darauf zu spekulieren, aber vielleicht reichen ja zwei siege in der quali um als lucky loser reinzukommen. ein, zwei absagen gibt es bestimmt noch. wenn auch hoffentlich nicht von MARLENE... :o


good luck, girls! :kiss:

oooohhh... I am kind of excited that Marlene Weingartner drew Kim Clijsters!! I hope she can keep up her "giant-killer" image this year, after beating Capriati in the first round last year. Of course, Marlene really needs the points!! Go Marlene! (nothing against Kim - and I hope she doesn't withdraw!)

GoDominique
Jan 16th, 2004, 12:00 AM
OK draw for Marlene and Anca:

1st round: Marlene vs. Kim ... or vs. another seed ... or versus a Q/LL :shrug:

Anca vs. Maureen Drake - win this !!!!! :fiery:

Then Raymond - same as last year. :lol:
Then Venus - same as last year. :lol:

hopefully all can make it to the maindraw
because just 2 players in maindraw is really poor

I personally don't think that Kim will play so Marlene can do ok for a few rounds. Even if Kim does play, if marlene is wise and plays smart tennis she wil beat kim who wont be 100%. I think she can make 3rd round. and lose to the winner of Safina/cotzer (assuming those two win their 1st matches)

Other than her I can see any of our players going too far. Ferrero I think will take out popp and keifer. and I think Escude will take out Schuettler.

the injury trophy ...


"Insgesamt stehen erst fünf deutsche Herren und zwei deutsche Damen im Hauptfeld des ersten Tennis-Grand-Slam-Turniers in diesem Jahr. Das schwerste Erstrunden-Los erhielt Marlene Weingärtner mit der Weltranglisten-Zweiten Kim Clijsters. Ob die Belgierin nach ihrer schweren Bänderdehnung rechtzeitig fit wird, ist jedoch fraglich. Marlene Weingärtner leidet ihrerseits an einer Bauchmuskelzerrung und will am Samstag versuchen, erstmals in Melbourne zu trainieren. «Das kann ja lustig werden. Am Ende gewinnt, wer länger durchhält», meinte sie scherzhaft zu ihrem Match."

1 out of 4 today ...

Diaz-Oliva def. Kloesel 6-3 6-2 not too surprising

Bachmann def. Vinci 2-6 6-2 6-2 :) great win

Prusova def. Grönefeld 6-2 7-6 (3) :rolleyes: pretty pathetic
And top-seed Lindsay Lee-Waters has lost too, which means that ALG is only the 2nd LL.

Dulko def. Gehrlein 6-2 5-7 6-4 :( :sad:
Good fight, Gehrelin saved MP at 5-3 3rd set, then had 40-15 to level the match but lost the next 4 points. :sad:

Anca won :D :woohoo:

But what a struggle :o

She slept during set 1, woke up in set 2. In the 3rd she went down 0-2, up 3-2 and down 3-5, wasting tons of BP's. :rolleyes:
Then saved MP on serve at 3-5 and finally broke to 5-5. The last 2 games went fast. :D

I'm so happy. Anca has choked so many times already in Slams - just great that she is on the other side this time. :D

The others - Popp lost, Kiefer playing pathetic :lol:.
Anca might be the only German left tonight. :o

Thank god Anca doesn't speak Nürnbergerisch. :tape: ;)

You are right, Anca played on court, and they had a proper camera. But I don't think it's fully equipped with cameras, so I don't think ARD will cover it live, even if it's in their coverage time.
But if they do - I won't complain. :D
