I agree with Zamboni.. she just has to play well! Let's hope she can be at 100% for the AO, imo she didn't play at her best in this beginning of season, and that she can manage the pressure..
Cichis lost the doubles final in Sidney: semifinal and final in the first two tournaments of the year anyway, that's not bad! :-) But we know that they can improve and do better!! Btw, it seems Williams sisters too will take part in the double draw in Melbourne... and probably unseeded...
Really hoping Sara will do well at AO. Not going to take too much from the first couple of tournaments as its the beginning of the season and there will always be ups and downs. One thing about watching Sara is its never predictable and always entertaining! You never know what's she's going to do! Sad that they lost the doubles today but hopefully they'll find their amazing 2012 form and start winning finals again soon.
Btw, I'm also a relatively new Sara fan from the UK. I first saw her playing against Sharapova in Roland Garros final and decided to support Sara, have never looked back since.
Uff!! I was a bit afraid of CSN indeed, and the pressure, and Sara not being at the top of her conditions...
I agree with you, Forza Sarita, that interview cheered me up a bit.. I'm happy she is not too much disappointed with herself and that she can manage the loss.
Let's hope for the doubles and for the rest of the season!! It won't be easy and I image that there will be other losses like this.. Vamos Cichi, always!!
