Australian Open 2010



Draw comes out Friday.

I really want her to win the AO! I hope she doesn't draw Justine

Let's see...since her comeback she has defeated, Serena, Venus, Justine, Kuzzy, Azarenka, Wozniacki. So that;s a good thing to have had played them already. But I wouldn't want Kim to play Serena again bc I think she will get her revenge .

Re: Australian Open 2010

Well, I'm really looking forward for this tournament, and I think Kim finally can win it.

It's, after USO, her best slam.

She has 4 SF (02 Capriati, 03 Serena, 06 Mauresmo, 07 Sharapova) and one final.

I think she only has to avoid Serena and maybe Justine.

I really hope she is in Dinara quarter of the draw, to get revenge

GL Kim!

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

Re: Australian Open 2010

Yes that would be good if Dinara is the higher seed she meets. Maybe Dinara will fall out before hand.
Will be a very interesting draw no doubt.

Re: Australian Open 2010

If she plays Justine in the first round it would probably result in the best match in the tournament being a first round match.

Clijsters has qualifier apparently.
She can face Henin in the quarters

She can't face a Williams until final. So hopefully they will be knocked off before that

Re: Australian Open 2010

Pretty tough draw for Kim I thought. Petrova 3rd round, Kuzzy 4th, Henin/Dementieva quarter?

Re: Australian Open 2010

Draw isn't too bad (provided she doesn't get Yanina in round 1, even though I think she would beat her.)

Lucie Safarova, Anna-Lena Groenefeld, Agnieszka Radwanska

Full draw: http://www.australianopen.com/en_AU/.../ws/wsdraw.pdf

Yeah not a great draw but could be worse I guess.
Which Petrova and Kuzzie will turn up...and can she defeat Henin back to back and at a Slam? THAT is the question.

Let's go Kim!

Re: Australian Open 2010

Not a very good draw at all. I am not pleased. It could be worse. She could be Dementieva. As Kim says, round by round and don't look ahead.
