Lovely Rita...
...please start picking up your game Sweetie. :kiss:

Hoping Rita can return to the terrific form she exhibited in 2002 when she had Jennifer on the ropes in Oz and almost sliced and diced her way to victory.

Please post 2004 results here. Thanks! :wavey:

Yeah, that's exactly what I call her (Beatles song, if anyone here doesn't get it). ;) And la Rita Grande is very lovely! :hearts:

The good form that Rita usually produces in Australia just hasn't happened this year :( sadly she has lost in the 1st rd of the Aussie Open to Jill Craybas 2-6 1-6. Come on Rita your fans are behind you, you need to believe in yourself and then you will return to winning ways and the form you showed in 2001 :)

CJ1, I wish it were that simple...

Losing by that scoreline in the first round to Jill is inexcusable. No offense to Jill but Rita should have at least been competitive. She's starting to lose to players ranked at her level and below which is a major cause for concern so I'm beginning to think Rita is losing her drive.

I love Rita and will continue to cheer her on with all I have in hopes she can turn things around but I'm beginning to wonder if she has the ambition to get to that 2001 level again.

I'd appreciate others' thoughts on this. Thanks! :wavey:

Rita (w/ Eleni) took a set off Lindsay and Corina but lost 6-1 in the third.

Still love you Rita :hug:

Bad news! She drew Chanda in the first round. :mad:
