Is Sveta training too much?

She is now constantly tired. Ok, this is her 3rd tournament in a row, but in this 3 weeks she played 3 matches in Stuttgart, but all of them fairly quick, even 3 setter, one very quick match in Moscow and, more than a week later this match in Zurich. According to reports on this board, she was exhausted in the second set.

I'm really worrying. What is going on with her? Obsviously, it's not from playing. Is she overtraining? (she is know for having an exceptional work ethic).

Vassilissa is my girl............

it could be from over-training.
or it could be the effort of playing on courts that allow one's opponent to retrieve many balls even though they are supposed to be 'fast'.
or maybe she's not in it to win it.

Then you have Michael Jackson & that name speaks for itself, no hype needed at all.

Nah - Sveta's in great shape, remember she comes from a top Russian cycling family. She is a good actress though, certainly fooled Janka today in the second set with the onslaught to close out the match. Both girls were sweating buckets in that arena today.

Could be tired mentally, maybe. It's been a long year.
I suspect the last few tournaments are very difficult to get
through.

She's scared. Her room in Zurich has a mirror

It could be both physically and mentally tired from too much playing. She should play less tournaments the next year. But If I was her, I couldnt resist the three last tournaments. Stuttgart is very tempting by the porche, Moscow is her hometown and Zurich is the tier I tournament, lots of points to gain.

- SVETLANA KUZNETSOVA -

I'm so proud of you!!

That reminds me of Sampras. What did Courier say once? Sampras is a good actor. Sampras would appear tired then explode into action and stun his opponent.

That sounds a good ploy to me.

Seriously though, after this tournament and Madrid, Sveta will get lots of rest.

it's the last final push - evryone is tired, she's just having (another) late season surge, so while she wants it mentally, the body can be betraying...

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

Sveta wants to do well in Madrid. Her performance there will tell the story
Sveta was never ultra consistent from tournament to tournament

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
