Re: S7 - 4: Australian Open, Melbourne (GS)






Polona Hercog


Polona's run to the final in Sydney with 0 aces earns her POTW and she now has 1 ace to use this week

Re: S7 - 4: Australian Open, Melbourne (GS)

Preview


Odds On




MK enters the Australian Open in a familiar position, as hot favourite having won 2/3 plexi warm-up events, it never really works out the way it's supposed to though We know MK has the skill, the talent and the sheer awesomeness to win this title, but the omens are bad, and a first round against Myskina is ominous. Henin also had a superb start to the season, and is shaping up to be a real force this season. If she can avoid off-days like the one she had in Sydney, she could go all the way. Finally we have Serena, although her results have not been stellar, she has 3 aces and has shown some positive signs, she's a good bet to be ATC's latest surprise Slam winner.


Solid Bets




Myskina suffered a blow having just lost the #1 ranking, but she could find herself back there soon with a strong run here. She has an epic first round against MK, which could be the deciding match in the draw, if she can overcome that huge obstacle, she'll be in a strong position to claim the top prize. Sharapova is full of confidence following her return to the top of the rankings, but she still has just 1 ace and will need some luck to triumph. Lastly there's Rezai, she's a real wildcard, but she has a win over MK and with 3 aces cannot be counted out.


Outside Chance




My Prediction

Re: S7 - 4: Australian Open, Melbourne (GS)

SERENA LOOKS FORWARD TO AUSSIE OPEN

Serena Williams arrived in Melbourne on saturday after loosing 4-6 7-6 7-6 to Maria Sharapova in the semifinals of the Sydney Apia International. She gave a press conference on saturday night ahead of the tournament. She will be up on monday against Martina Hingis in hopes of making it to the main draw.



Q. Are you worried about lacking matches and starting your Grand Slam season?

SERENA WILLIAMS: I prefer to be going into the first Grand Slam healthy, not necessarily thinking that I've not played a lot of matches. To me health is the most important. I'm actually happy with my decision to skip the first tournament of the season. I'm still top 8 in the race, that's not bad.


Q. Are you happy with the amount of practice you've had then?

SERENA WILLIAMS: Yep, yep. I've been able to do what I wanted to do, gym and on court, so yep.


Q. Are you gonna text Venus for advice ? She know Martina very well.

SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah probably. She's so smart and analytic. She's the best at that. (Laughters)


Q. Will Venus get up to watch you play?

SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah she watches every match. She and my dad are my biggest fans.


Q. Have you texted her or been in touch with her since you arrived?

SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah. She was telling me some things. So, yeah, we talk. We text a lot.



Q. Did you have a WTA mentor when you came on tour?

SERENA WILLIAMS: Yeah, I did. I was with Zina Garrison. That was good. It was really cool.


Q. Do you ever think you would want to have more of a role in nurturing the young Americans?

SERENA WILLIAMS: Wow, I don't know. I don't know. Hopefully I could be something positive for the young Americans. There's so many young Americans playing today. They're actually doing really, really well. There's a lot of young girls coming up. So that could be kind of cool, you know, as long as we keep things really professional on the court.

I'm really someone that always is like, Be the best, do the best. Actually really cool.

Re: S7 - 4: Australian Open, Melbourne (GS)

I think the main favorite is the only semifinalist from last edition which will play here
