Poor VERA!!!!!!!!!!!

I felt so bad for her. She was so down on herself. Wiping a tear
off her face in the second set, and when "match point" was
called out she looked to about to burst into tears.

Why does she have to be so hard on herself...?


Hang tough Vera.

The first time I saw Vera cry I felt sympathy. That was at USopen 2002 in her match against Clijsters.
Now it gets a bit annoying. Everytime??!!!

Allez Ju!

Well, I was rooting for her... but she needs to get over this emotional psycho thing, she should be experienced enough to know how many matches it costs her and why she should at least make an effort to stop it. When she was a kid and did it, I felt sorry for her... but she's not in juniors any more, and if anything it's getting worse, not better.

What was even more ridiculous is that on the, like, five points she deigned to play well, she showed exactly how it was possible to hit Lindsay off the court

Russian players are so mentally fragile. It's this huge mix of
pride and pain. They expect so much that when things go slightly
off, they blame themselves.

Please....no poor Vera, nada! The girl´s just a petulant little-child. Get a grip! EVERY call, EVERY ball she had to make faces, she had to complain...come on.

Always bet on black!

I can't feel sorry for either. Her behaviour is pathetic and childish. She's not 10 years old anymore.
She won't win anything if she doesn't get her act together.

Vera had her chances in the 2nd set but she was too perhaps emotional to capitalise them...
I could not bear to watch her tearful expression at the end of the match..

She should really curb this mental problem as she has a really good game to compete with the top players.

It wasn't histornics this time; it was like she had the weight of
the world on her shoulders. It's was pain or more like feeling
way to sorry for yourself.

Myskina was sitting with Vera's coach, and well...they just
stared at Vera stoney face.

Ah yes. Didn't we just have an apology for name calling. Then someone expressed doubt about the sincerity of the apology noting that Bandy had apologised before only to follow it shortly by another incident of name caling and ridicule, and Bandy call that person pathetic.

Looks as if that person were absolutely dead on.

Exactly....when she decided to PLAY, she actually was hitting toe to toe with Lindsay...but then she would hit just ONE ball in the net and it would be all over again.

Always bet on black!

so apparently she was complaining on every close-to-the-line shots Lindsay made?

You guys are pathetic....so what, I can´t say that Vera needs to get a grip and stop acting like a baby?!

Are you gonna hate to everybody else in this thread as well?!
