Cool The Return of the Diva!!! (The Indian Wells Thread)

Yes! Finally, our girl is back! Woohoo!

There have been some serious Iva withdrawal symptoms going around!!! I cant believe she hasnt played in nearly 2 months!
Her draw seems quite favorable IMO....first up is a qualifier...and then Amanda Coetzer. Amanda is very tough of course, but she seems to not be playing her best...hopefully Iva can get passed that qualifier and catch Amanda on a bad day...oh well, we'll find out sooner or later! Im anxious to see who this tough qualifier will be!

Francesca Schiavone also lurks in Round 3....I wont look further than this But hey, lets try and be optimistic! I really think if she is back in good health, she can have a great tournament here and pick up some valuable points

Go Iva!!!!!!!! We're behind you all the way, and here's hoping you're not too rusty

IVA IS BACK!!!!!!

Let's hope Iva's shoulder injury is fully healed and she can shake off the rust...

GO DIVA!!!

Woo-hoo! the Diva returns. And with as good a draw as we could have hoped for. She can handle Coetzer, she's shown that in the past, and Coetzer's not playing well at all right now. It should be Schiavone in round 3 - Schiavone's pretty streaky, it could go either way. Hopefully there'll be a 4th round conflict of interests for me between Iva and Elena D... we'll handle that when it happens

...the qualifier is Virginie Razzano.

Coulda been worse I guess...but coulda been better too

Virginie is a hard hitter and this isnt the ideal first match back for Iva (in fact its quite a dangerous match!), but hopefully things will work out

They know eachothers games pretty well...they won a doubles event last year (I think Paris Indoor from memory), and they played eachother in the final of a top level challenger in France in November 2000, with Virginie winning in 3.

Good luck Iva!

Iva plays Virginie Razzano of France first round- this could be very tough, but of course I'm pulling for IVA all the way!!!!

Virginie is 18 years old and has wins over Bacheva, Kremer, Panova, Anke Huber, Kandarr, Sugiyama, Black, Sanchez Vicario, but hasn't had a win in 2002 yet, so hopefully Iva will keep her down!!! Virginie is definitely a talented player but I think that Iva is ready to come out firing!!!
They probably know each others games very well as they were doubles partners in a winning effort at the Paris Indoors 2001. So this will be a difficult match, but GO DIVA!!!!
