I think she is in the easier part of the draw & if she finally finds back to her old form something like QF or even better is possible, but after 2007-Season also a loss to the Q can happen :unsure:

But new season, new luck: ALLEZ! :D :rocker2:

Aravane def Shuai Zhang 6-3 6-3 starting the year by a win:yeah:

she is playing tomorrow:
Court 4 11AM
1. Paszek vs Pin
2. Parmentier vs Errani [NB NOON]
3. Rezai vs Daniilidou
4. Srebotnik vs Meusburger

next round is tougher cause she face danilidou,former top20 player and former winner of Auckland Tournament(2003,2004)very good player even if she's not doing that well lately.Serious opponent for Aravane,tough one.
hopefully Aravane will pass her and go further in that tourny

Tennis - WTA - Auckland - Rezaï en finale


En 2007, Aravane Rezaï (Photo archives L'Equipe) avait dû attendre huit tournois et trois mois avant de gagner un match sur le circuit majeur WTA. En 2008, il lui aura fallu moins d'une semaine pour égaler sa meilleure performance de l'année précédente. Victorieuse (6-3, 7-5) vendredi de sa demi-finale contre la Néo-Zélandaise Marina Erakovic, la Française disputera la finale du tournoi d'Auckland contre l'Américaine Lindsay Davenport, qui a éliminé (6-4, 6-3) l'Autrichienne Tamira Paszek (n°6).

«Bien sûr, je respecte (Davenport) et elle joue bien. Mais je n'ai rien à perdre», a promis Aravane Rezaï après sa demi-finale. Multipliant les coups gagnants face à une jeune adversaire très maladroite sur son engagement (40% de premier service), ce qui a permis à la Française de la breaker quatre fois, il semble effectivement que la 90e mondiale joue plus libérée cette saison. Rien ne dit cependant que cela sufffira face à Davenport, qui a passé 10 aces à Paszek. L'ancienne n°1 mondiale, 72e aujourd'hui, est impériale depuis son retour de grossesse avec deux trophées et une demi-finale en 2007, et donc cette finale qui lui permettra au minimum de poursuivre sa remontée au classement.
