I'm obviously going to cheer for her. I just said that my gut tells me it won't end well. I really hope she proves me wrong, as she has many times in the past

fortunately I think even less of them then they do of the players

Translation of their brilliant analysis: All 3 will lose in the first round!
mic12 they are good for being truthful, the draw is tough for all. HR2 had interviews last week on tennis, anyone hear? Podcast was online and in VL and SD there was small reports (Dalmacija).

mic12, it's possible to be a dedicated, loyal fan while also being realistic. Not only possible, but even desirable, I would say.

I am sorry, but there is no reason Petra should not be expected to beat Doi. She is ranked 30 places ahead, and has way more experience. If you don't think she can win this, what do you think she can win?

Re: ~Petra Martic~

I just hope she's healthy, cause if she is Doi is going down (and under)

Seriously though, no reason for a heated discussion, everyone has a right to an opinion and sometimes we have our little pesky personal demons who plant some doubt even when there doesn't seem to be a big reason for it. Anyway, Petra's draw this time is nothing short of brutal (if she beats Doi and by a small miracle eliminates Maria, she gets to play Venus in R3 ), so I really hope she at least makes the most of this first match. Points are very important here, cause she is defending a lot in the first 6 months of the year, so 100 here would be a considerable relief.

Btw, is AO streaming usually of good quality? I've never tuned in before, so those of you who know more...? Thnx!

Re: ~Petra Martic~

petra hasn't played in a long time and had some injury in the off season. meanwhile, doi had a good (and easy) win against bertens in sydney. petra will have to come out and serve well and stay aggressive, which is hard to do when you don't have matches under your belt

Doi is so much more impressive than when I saw her at RG last year, I'm quite impressed

Re: ~Petra Martic~

She can turn this around, but she's going to need to play smarter. Where are the slices, drop shots, heavy topspin?

Petra is way too tentative. Doi often ends up too far inside the court, but Petra just can't get the ball deep
