This is a hard draw, but a good first match. I am sure that Mary will be OK.

I am so glad that Mary is back and playing again

Best of luck

Good luck Mary!!!

Well...she's got V. Ruano-Pascual and Myskina in her way again....

I'm sure that Ruano-Pascual won't be a problem...but Myskina is going to be much tougher....she's a great counter-puncher :sad:

I just hope that Mary just goes for her shots in her coming matches...I mean...that is what our girl does so well...when the ball is set up for her...Mary strikes the ball better than anybody else on the tour... :) its only that when she's on the defense and had to run that she can't get the same pace on the ball...

so I really hope that Mary strikes the ball anytime she got an open court...forget about rallying or trying to wrong-foot the other girls...these girls are so fast nowdays....good counter-punchers too (Clijsters,Myskina, Dokic, Henin, not to mention the Williams sisters).... so in short, my opinion is this....she absolutely must try to dominate the point FIRST...before the other girls did....so that she won't have to run....this will enable her time to unleash her ooo so POWERFUL SHOTS!!!

what do you guys think???? ;)

anyway....good luck to MARY PIERCE in Berlin!!!!!!! :bounce: :bounce:

Mary Pierce.....simply the BEST!!!!! :bounce: :bounce: :worship: :worship:


P.S: I do think that its worth noting that Mary had reached the finals here in 1997....she lost to Mary-Joe Fernandez, I think!!!

I think that you are right, mary needs to take the point very early this is the way in which she is the best, but i think that she is able to be a excellent tactician too...
Mary may be care of Ruano Pascual because she is an excellent player on clay... GO MARY :wavey: :) :wavey: :) :wavey: :) :wavey:

Williams has withdrawn and Myskina has moved in the draw. Mary still plays Ruano in the first round, but if she wins will play either 13th seed Ai Sugiyama or Marie Gaiane Mikealien.

I think the first match will be a good test for Mary and if she goes through... with Sugiyama Mary always has hard matches and Mikealien is a clay player, she beat Mary once (Mary was injured if I remember).......

Let see the first match !!!

:angel: :angel: :angel:

If Mary win, she will play Mikaelian who defeated Sugiyama 6,1 7,5, a cool opponent for mary, she beated her last year at Rome in three set. But today the problem is Ruano-p...
