ooops, my bad!:o Thanks Janie. How could I forget??? I'll edit my post.

Mara's playing really well and I think she has a real shot against Magui.

Forza Mara!!! :bounce:

Hi everybody !!! 9 italians in the MD, that's great !!!

Pity that Roby is missing :fiery: and that Flavia and Antonella have to face each other:sad:
My predictions for the first round, all italians had a pretty difficult draw :

Pin vs Tax - Tax should win, but Camille wents through qualies and she must be confident. Anyway Tax will go out in round 2 against Justine...

Mara vs Magui - Mara has good chances for an upset, but I think at the end Magui will win. What a pity that she drew a seed, she is playing well and she could have won a couple aof matches with a decent draw

Flavia vs Antonella - I say Flavia in 3 sets, but again an upset is possible, Flavia is not 100%fit and Antonella is playing well. In the second round both have chances against Kuznetsova in round 2

Adriana SZ vs Dani Hantuchova - this is an interesting match, both palyers had a crappy 2003, Dani is the obvious favourite, but Adriana loves playing in Melbourne (QF 2 years ago), so maybe Dani in 3 sets, with a possible upset (I HOPE!!). If Adriana pulls the upset she could reach at least round 3

Rita vs Craybas - a "normal" Rita would win this easily, but I am afraid Rita will go down in 3 sets, she is the Italian that is playing the worst tennis at the moment, I know it is mental attitude more than phisical, I hope she will recover soon, but I have a bad feeling about Rita this year, she might drop in the rankings and maybe retire at the end of the season...of course I hope I am wrong ! Rita would lose to Dementieva in round 2

Francesca ns Torrens Valero - Francesca should win in 2 sets if she is not too tired from Sidney, but Cristina is a good, consistent player, so watch out. Francesca is Italy's best bet for a QF finish, Chanda is not 100% and Myskina is also beatable if Fran is in good shape.

Silvia vs Nagyova - it will very much depend upon Henrieta's health, if she is fine it might be a difficult match for the in-form Silvia. My dear Silvia should win, I have great hopes that she can at least reach 3rd-4th round this year, though her draw is not easy at all

Maria Elena vs Sequera -- ME should win, though Milagros is better ranked, but her run would end in the second round against Kim

I agree completely with Gabriel, just that I think adriana has VERY GOOD chances vs Daniela, daniela hasnt won a set all year ( I know we're at the beggining) but she even went down 6-0 5-0 to Madnula before Petra started choking...

FORZA RAGAZZE! :banana:

Not a good start, but alright mara!And dont forget Rita getting clobbered by Jill although I'm sure we'd all like to. :mad: :rolleyes:

Good efforts by Tathiana and Adriana. Flavia still shaking off some rust while Antonella continues to impress.

Mara's win is particularly impressive. She had more winners than errors and battled Magui through many deuce games for a come from behind victory. I like her chances against Babsi in Round Two. :)

Best of luck to Silvia, Francesca, and Maria Elena today...

Main draw started with nine ragazze and there are two remaining as we head to the third round.

What a gritty effort by Silvia coming back in the second set and holding off Vivi in the third. :D :kiss: :hug: She'll need the same against Amy tomorrow. Forza!!! :cool:

I don't know what happpened to Francesca yesterday. :confused:

Her loss isn't a total surprise because Elena played extremely well in first round match against Dally (check the stats) while Francesca's stats were much less impressive (more UEs than winners vs Cristina). Also, Elena normally plays well in Melbourne while Fran's record has been less than stellar here. But that scoreline!!! :o Well, the season's still young and I expect Francesca to maintain her Top 20 ranking.

Maria Elena got creamed by Kim but she did well to get through qualies and get to the second round of the main draw. :hug:

As for the other half, Mara will have her hands full with Eleni but the way she's knocking off these veterans I won't be totally suprised if she pulls off yet another upset and gets to the foruth round. Go Mara! :hearts:

Good effort by Antonella against Svetlana. :hug:

Also, good luck to the girls in dubs. Tax/Flavia and Silvia/Francesca are already out :sad: :sad: as are Antonella and Mara. :( Rita (w/Eleni) lost but at least won a set off of Lindsay and Corina last night. :o ;) Only ragazze alive are Roby (w/Manu) and Adriana (w/ Samantha). :kiss: :kiss:
