Well, Iva's in the main draw for the Doha tournament next week. Not a nice draw at all - she opens against Janette Husarova, who beat her in Oz, and if she wins that she'll play Sandrine Testud (the #2 seed), who I remember seemed to be Iva's nemesis for a while back in 97/98. :fiery: Not happy. She certainly has the talent to beat Husarova - remember she was hampered by a shoulder injury in Oz - but if she fails to show up mentally... Anyway, here's to trying to be positive - we can definitely get a few days' cheering in!

:bounce: :bounce: ALLEZ IVA!!! :bounce: :bounce:

How unlucky is this draw????

Why did she get Husarova 1st round- well here's to revenge!!! And yes, Iva has history of struggling against Sandrine:

Iva MAJOLI (CRO) v Sandrine TESTUD (FRA)

1996 French Open Clay (O) 32 Iva MAJOLI 4-6 7-5 6-4
1997 Atlanta Hard (O) SF Sandrine TESTUD 5-7 3-6
1997 US Open Hard (O) 64 Sandrine TESTUD 4-6 6-2 1-6
1998 Canadian Open Hard (O) 32 Sandrine TESTUD 7-6 4-6 1-6
1999 Stanford Hard (O) 32 Sandrine TESTUD 1-6 1-6
2001 Zurich Hard (I) 16 Sandrine TESTUD 6-7(6) 4-6

Sandrine TESTUD (FRA) leads 5 : 1

Yikes, but I always think that Iva can beat anyone on any given day, so we'll just have to cross our fingers!!!!

GO DIVA!!!!

Husarova isn't going to easy either.

(She wasn't the sick one in Paris either, it was Dementieva)

Go give it ya all Iva :D

This is such bad news :(
However, maybe it is for the best... Iva seems to be ailing so far this year, so I think it would be best for her to heal up and get her health back again. :)
