Re: US open!

Such cute pics, thank you

She said in her blog (which is really cute!) that she's pleased with the way she's been playing, and in doubles too. She was disappointed about USO, but she said Nath&Dinara were better that particular day, and she's happy they won so they lost to eventual champions She's so cute.

That's exactly what I was thinking
It's sort of like the RG Final, or the Stanford/San Diego SFs.
But worse

Ah well... I hope they can rebound, do well in the fall to qualify for YEC and then do well at the Aussie Open. That one's super important.

Re: US open!

Probably she wasnt inspired enough cos all higher ranked doubles were out.

And Kata really dreams she can win in Portoroz.

Re: US open!

They lost 5-7 3-6
This is so crushing... they couldn't win the slam they were favorites for.

Re: US open!

So disappointing... They're losing to Dechy and Safina badly.

Re: US open!

They better... !!

They will play the QF on Wednesday against (7) Dechy & Safina, who beat Garbin & Peer 6-4 1-6 7-5.

I'm so excited for their match!!

Re: US open!

This could be the biggest chance they ever get, so they better live up to the opportunity.

Re: US open!

The draw keeps opening up - Raymond & Stosur are out

(6) Peschke/Stubbs vs. (13) Morariu/Shaughnessy
(3) Ai&Kata vs. [Dechy/Safina or Garbin/Peer]
Szavay/Uhlirova vs. Foretz/Shvedova
(5) Chan/Chuang vs. (16) Mirza/Mattek

That means: Ai and Kata are now the favorites for the title
I really hope they don't let the moment get to them, I really hope they can come through here... I believe.

Re: US open!

I'm hoping for the dream final right now - YJ & CJ vs. Ai & Kata

The draw looks like this now:

(6) Peschke/Stubbs vs. (13) Morariu/Shaughnessy
(3) Ai&Kata vs. [Dechy/Safina or Garbin/Peer]
Szavay/Uhlirova vs. Foretz/Shvedova
(5) Chan/Chuang vs. (2) Raymond/Stosur

I really hope they can come up with the win here, it's doable, I really hope they can keep this up... it's only three matches, after all!

They also have a nice shot at being third after the USO, depends on how far Chan and Chuang go.

I can agree. It is always said when players with such a talent have an attitude like that. When she is again on a good way she loses again to lower ranked players like last year Suchá or this year Vesnina, .... - but when she really doesn't change anything it will be even hard for her to re-enter in Top-20.

Yeah, Andreja is obviously a fighter. Sure, not the weapons like a Kata, but she tries to improve all the time and that's the good thing. She also plays a lot. Shows how important it is for her. When I met her for a short time in 2006 Stuttgart, she was very cool. Her win against Tu was just .
I looked in the SLO-ENG dictionary of curse words and it means "mother's ****"

Yeah, agree, she should face the truth and say, I am bad if I won't pass the 4R in a GS, I want to do this really bad, or maybe even winning it . And she would play better definetly, because there's a good frame in your mind then and you believe you are capable.

How could Jankovic become number 3? And she isn't more talented than Srebotnik.

Klepac has bigger weapons than Srebotnik Srebotnik doesn't have a big backhand, Klepac has forehand, backhand + serve and she moves or tries to move really well too. But she isn't as consistent and that hurts her.

Great doubles win
