S2 Week 14, Strasbourg, FRA, Tier II

STRASBOURG





Welcome to Strasbourg, France - our last stop before the season's second Grand Slam. This is the last opportunity for players to boost their rankings for the seedings - and with the top 16 being seeded in Paris, there will certainly be a fight between the mid-ranked players here this week. Serena ascended to #1 last week - can she cement her position here in Strasbourg? Expect last week's Rome champ Golovin to do well in front of her home crowd.


Defending Champion : Elena Dementieva

SAFINA HOPING TO CONTINUE FORM IN STRASBOURG

Fresh off her maiden OWTT Final appearance Dinara Safina is hoping to continue the form that took her within one victory of her first title at Rome last week. Safina, an original tour member started season one in reasonable touch before a late season form slump which attracted plenty of doubters to her game. Since then she has worked hard and we may be beginning to see the fruits of her labour.

As the tour moves to Strasbourg our intrepid Robshots reporter tracked down the Russian to hear her thoughts on the upcoming tournament, life on the OWTT and all things Safina.



Dinara Safina trains hard in the lead up to Strasbourg Photo- http://www.robshots.com.au


Q: First of all congratulations on making the final in Rome, what does this mean to you?

A: Thankyou very much, it means a great deal and tells me my game is somewhere close to where I want it to be, it has given me belief that I can win that first title I have been wanting so much.

Q: Up until last week you had many critics saying you will never win a title, do you think that will change now?

A: No, they will keep saying it, and I guess it's up to me to prove them wrong, after all I had only made one semi final before last week so I have a lot to prove if I want to be a top contender.

Q: How are you adapting to the rigours of the OWTT?

A: I feel I am slowly getting into the groove and that I can adjust to my ever changing surroundings much better now, this helps me concentrate on my game much more.

Q: Do you have any goals for this season?

A: Well the obvious one is to win a tournament but abov all I want to be consistant and finsih the year in the top ten.

Q: What do you like to do in your spare time on the tour?

A: I have recently taken up skateboarding as well as my addiction to all games consoles and playing my guitar.

Q: Who do you see as the main chances in Strasbourg?

A: Hmmm so many! I have to say Tatiana as well as Serena and Elena ..... I have a feeling Alize may go well here but hopefully it's 2nd to me (laughs)

Q:Thanks for your time and good luck

A: No problems and thankyou
