It looks like she'll enter the tournament as the fourth seed. Hopefully Sandrine can get a couple matches and get back her confidence here, the sight of a three set thriller against Martina last year in quarters...
Sandrine's 3-1 against both Adriana and Rita but Rita is clearly the more dangerous player for Sandrine with her slice and dice game. If Rita is the opponent, let's hope Sandrine's forehand is on because Rita will defintely pick on it with those low slices. I don't think I can root against Rita vs. Adriana so I'll let the chips fall where they may.
The thing I'm worried about is that lower ranked opponents will now be loaded for bear and play more confidently knowing that Sandrine is struggling. Am I becoming paranoid??? I just don't think I can take another early round defeat.
Sorry for the somber tone of this post.
Will someone please post something to get me angry? I think it's important that we send some of Scott's "kick ass" vibes from the Dubai cheering thread to Sandrine. She needs to get angry!
Tough enough draw in the light of Sandrine's recent form. I guess 1 match at a time is required but I'm sure her fighting instinct is going to kick in soon. I also think the prescence of Venus Williams in her half of the draw could help Sandrine as she always seems to get more up for it when she's got the very big names around her.
That's the spirit, folks! No more pussy footing around. Sandrine needs to get angry and kick some butt!
Terry, you dare mention Kim Po in this thread??? That traitor! Deport her ass over to Switzerland I say. Who the f**k does she think she is??? (&#*&$*@(#&*@^#(*@^*@&()&@$&^@&)$([email protected]&()#*@()*)$&)@
Sandrine and Roby won their first round doubles against some unknown Russian pair (at least I never heard of them) . Final score was 6-3, 6-2. Hopefully this will carry over into the singles against Rita who survived her opening match against Adriana Gersi after a first set bagel, 0-6,6-4,7-5.
Ok, enough celebrating. Time to put on a sour face.
Congrats girls! I believe it was Rodionova and ??? someone?
oops I thought you guys meant Adriana Serra-Zanetti instead of Gersi! hehe, thats why I mentioned "both are playing well"...I cant believe no-one picked up on that, since that Gersi has hardly won a match (if any at all!) this year!...I feel so stupid
I was actually wondering why Adriana S-Z was in Memphis beating Mirjana!
OK...time to get that ball rolling and knock over a few pins! (If Camille Pin was playing that would be the best pun ever!) Sorry...its past my bedtime
They were down in the first set but kicked ass after that. Of course, they should have never been down in the first place but at least they snapped out of it! We can be happy about this win, but not too happy! FOCUS!
