Voskoboeva? Who is she?

Voskoboeva has taken first set against Mauresmo 64!
Who is she?
Mauresmo must be rusty after all this time off!

At 6'2 Voskoboeva is the second tallest player in the Top 100 after Davenport.

actually, as I have posted in another thread, Galina has been playing really well in this tournament. She has a big 1st serve and a fh. She runs around to hit her fh. Her second serve is significantly slower but has a big kick. She is useless at the net and against low balls (like slices). She is got to be successful against players who hit with a topspin as it comes right into her hitting zone (e.g. her match against Sam Stosur).

Galina is a good example of what playing A LOT can do. Didn't she play like 16 weeks in a row last fall/winter to get in the AO main draw directly?

Anyways she almost lost a set to Sharon Fichman in Rogers Cup and lost to Tania Rice in Montreal 2 years ago. I don't see much in her game, I think she is really reaching her best ranking ever right now.

I think Mauresmo heard during the match about her US Open Draw and she thought for it in a while.

I'd disagree. her problem has always been her lack of focus. Last year at US Open quali tournament she was cruising and then fell apart after making couple of easy ue. Literally, fell apart. Her opponent didn't have to do anything with that.
