Re: Rossana De Los Rios 2008 Cheering Thread!

That's a shame that she pulled out of Ashland. Thanks for the news. I guess it's good for her to rest her body, we don't want any more of those horrendous injuries like she had a couple of years back!

I hope she plays the $25K San Luis Potosi. It's a much easier field, and though it won't help her ranking much, it would be nice for her to win a title this year.

Ditty Prevails in ColemanVision Title Match
By Toby Smith
Journal Staff Writer
A Ditty double.
In Ditty World, the tennis sphere that Julie Ditty has existed in all week at Tanoan Country Club, winning is only one part of living.
In Ditty World, opponents get mowed down like crabgrass, smiles show up often, rackets never thrown, autographs signed until fingers hurt, thank-yous handed out like pennies, boring interview questions gracefully answered, and, just for fun, somersaults made off the top of the Sandia Mountains.
No truth to that last act, though in Ditty World, anything's possible.
On Sunday afternoon, Ditty, the ColemanVision Championships No. 2 seed, knocked off the No. 1 seed and defending champion, Rossana de los Rios, 6-4, 7-6 (3) to take the singles title.
Twenty-five minutes later, Ditty, 29, returned to the court to capture the doubles with Carly Gullickson, 6-3, 6-4, over Argentina's Jorgelina Cravero and Betina Jozami.
In Ditty World, though, surprises sometimes happen.
Against the stalwart De los Rios, steady as a metronome at 33, Ditty failed to convert seven match points, six in the second set and another in the tiebreak. That sort of of tension left many in the sun-drenched crowd of 250 spent from excitement.
"Believe me," Ditty said later as she scribbled her name on tennis balls for a mob of ballkids, "I didn't want to make it exciting. I think we were both nervous out there."
Indeed, after zipping through the first set, mostly by sending mini-lobs and slow stuff to De los Rios, Ditty led 4-1 in the second. At that point, fans began collecting their belongings; Ditty World seemed impregnable.
Surprise!
"I didn't play my game then," said Ditty, acknowledging that she shifted to wailing from the baseline with De los Rios, who is a master of that.
Serving for the match at 5-3, Ditty World shook. Four straight times Ditty failed to convert and suddenly the score was 5-4. Just as quick was 5-all, then 6-all. In the tiebreak, Ditty jumped out to 4-1, and at 6-3 De los Rios double-faulted to end things.

In Ditty World, when you win you don't do a Roger Federer and roll around on the court. Nor do you scramble up into the stands and hug family members. (None were around). You walk to the net with your head up, smiling (of course). You shake hands and then exchange a kiss.
When all was done, De los Rios was smiling, too.
"It was not like a normal match," she said. "There were so many match points."

For winning, Ditty received $11,400. De los Rios' runner-up check was $6,080.
In doubles, Carly Gullickson, slamming unreturnable overheads left and right at the Argentines, carried the pairing that reached the third round of the U.S. Open. The two Americans will split $4,180. The Argentines will do likewise with $2,090.
The proceeds for this year's ColemanVision Championships totaled about $20,000, according to tournament director Sue Jollensten.
Next up for Ditty World? Today, she leaves for her hometown of Ashland, Ky., and a $10,000 Pro Circuit event there run by her father, Dr. Jack Ditty, a dermatologist.
De los Rios, from Paraguay, will have her eyes checked by Dr. Stephen Coleman. If everything goes right, she'll return to Albuquerque in a couple of weeks and have Lasik surgery.
I wonder if that means that she will pull out next week to have the surgery. And I wonder if it will take her time to recover from the surgery or get used to it. It should help her tennis though, if she can see the ball better! I guess we'll have to wait and see.

Hmm, i remember Capriati had Lasik eye surgery and had problems seeing the ball at the Australian Open ( lost in the 1st rd) a month after she had it . I hope she waits until the end of the season to have this procedure.
I hope Rossana plays the 2 clay tourneys in Mexico because, yes...the draws are easier and she will be playing on her best surface .
Talk with u soon......

Re: Rossana De Los Rios 2008 Cheering Thread!

Rossana seems to be scheduling pretty wisely...I'm glad she pulled out of Ashland and is staying in the Southwest for Juarez....Let's hope she keeps the season moving in an upward direction!
VAMOS!

RoRos section of the draw...


Singles Main Draw

(1)Rossana De Los Rios (PAR) v Sara Del Barrio-Aragon (ESP)
Eva Fernandez-Brugues (ESP) v Q

Story Tweedie-Yates (USA) v (wc)Erika Clarke-Magana (MEX)
(5)Estrella Cabeza-Candela (ESP) v (wc)Daniela Munoz-Gallegos (MEX)

--------------------------------------------------------------------
Looks like a nice section of the draw for Rossana . But honestly, i have only ever heard of Story and Erika Clarke before . I have no idea how the #5 seed Estrella( or anyone else in this section )plays , maybe someone can clue me in

Re: Rossana De Los Rios 2008 Cheering Thread!

Thanks for posting the draw in here, Heath!

Yeah, i dont blame you for not knowing most of those players in her quarter I have heard of their names, but they really don't have the results that would make me nervous about Rossana facing them. Estrella is a decent player on clay but I think RoRo would get past her in 2 sets.

That's great she plans to play Augusta...the more wins, the more she plays and the more titles she can win this year before it ends, the better!!!

Rock on RORO!!! Good luck tomorrow!!

Shame that she lost in the doubles 1R, but i guess she only plays doubles for fun now.

Re: Rossana De Los Rios 2008 Cheering Thread!

The doubles matche started at 14.00 local time and the weather was nice to play.In the first game of the match Heidi El Tabakh and Story Tweedie broke Rossana serve and then El Tabakh held her serve pretty easy,serving very strong with one ace.
The story repeat once again and the team Tabakh/Tweedie was leading the match 4/1 but Erika Clarke was becoming stronger at the net and starting to win almost of the points in the net.Rossana make a couple of forehand winners but also made some mistakes at the net and the first set finish 3/6.

In the second set Heidi/Story were 3/0 up , then Clarke held her serve and after that De Los Rios/Clarke broke the other team serve for first time in the whole match.The match was very interesting from there to the end,where Rossana was playing pretty solid from the baseline and Erika was winning the points at the net.Then the team DeLosRios/Clarke were up for the first time in the whole match 5/4 but the other team played very good the important points and took the second set and the match.

Re: Rossana De Los Rios 2008 Cheering Thread!

So do we know if she beat Sara?
I'd be surprised if this didn't end up with Rossana against Mariana in the final.
She's playing Quebec, but is that after Lawrenceville? I can't remember!
Good luck in R2 (assuming she won!)
VAMOS!

Yes , Lawrenceville ( and Pittsburgh )are before Quebec City. There is a major US 75k ITF event the week after Quebec City, but they still do not know where it will be held . Pittsburgh was in this spot, but they moved it up a few weeks leaving the week after Quebec empty. This is always a popular week for most of the us based ITF girls to finish there seasons after playing in Quebec =).
Also, Rossana has pulled out of the 25k in Mexico ( hardcourt ) which means she will play in Pitt. This years entry list is allot weaker than when it was held the week after Quebec. Yet another smart move from Rossana ...
