French Diva Mary Pierce was upset by compatriot Tatiana Golovin... A bitter and conceited sounding Mary said she was unimpressed by Golovin and lost only because she beat herself... :devil:

THE MORNING HERALD

Bali, 9march, 2005

DEMENTIEVA, SPREM, DELL’ACQUA, BOVINA, DOMINATE DAY-1 AT THE KANGAROO OPEN.

The wait has finally ended as the much hyped and awaited Kangaroo Open began here today with a bang. At the center court Maria Sharapova the favorite to win her tie against Marta Marrero had some unexpected difficulty in overcoming a stiff challenge of a spirited Marta, after losing the first set badly Sharapova came back well in the second set to win during a tie breaker and in the third to win 7-5. Nevertheless, it was a great match for Marta and the spectators. Tennis experts believe that Marta has a great future in WTA: The Game if she can keep up the good work.

Na Li who was very confident in the pre-match interview got a rude shock early when she lost the first set in a tiebreaker to Anna Kounikova who is making a come back to WTA, but then showed her true class as she destroyed Anna in the next two sets. Surely, Na Li is a championship contender whereas Anna will gain in confidence as she plays more. She still has a chance to win a trophy though as she teams up with Myskina for doubles action.

The young croat Karolina Sprem dominated Chanda Rubin in the other match at the centre court, defeating her 6-0 6-1. Her class really showcasing in this match. She will next meet the top seed Venus Williams of USA in the next round. Wishing her best of luck.

Elena Dementieva, who staged her comeback from a finger injury conquered Serena Williams in a game at court-1 with a 6-1 6-1 victory over her hard serving opponent. Dementieva, who was written off by the experts before the tournament due to her problems with serve stunned all the critics with her victory over a strong opponent.

In the other matches Casey Dell'Acqua defeated Monica Seles confidently 6-2 6-1. Young Tatiana Golovin defeated Mary Pierce in a three setter 2-6 6-1 6-4. Though the coach of Mary Pierce said that Tatiana did not defeat Mary it was Mary who defeated herself (wonder what that means) but Tatiana had played well to defeat Mary. In another match Elena Bovina defeated her opponent Adriana Serra Zanetti in straight sets 6-4 6-2.

Quote: Marat Safin who had come to watch the inaugural tourney of WTA Tour: The Game when asked about it said that, “This game is great, it is only gong to get better as more players join, directors keep up the good work.”

Best of Luck to all and may the best win.
