Re: Yaroslava Shvedova def. Bethanie Mattek 6-3 6-3 and qualifies for MD!
Another excellent result. Very strong from begining to end. So Yari played two Americans in qualifying both of whom had won matches in the main draw at Indian Wells and she beat them both comfortably in straight sets. Very very encouraging
Oh, here is a very nice stat.......with this win Yari is now 16 wins in her last 18 matches when playing opponents who are playing at home. Obviously the most notable of those wins being the one against Sania. But there is no hometown advantage when you play against Yaroslava
Well done, Shvedova! She still must have the confidence after her big tournament win in Bangalore I'm actually surprised that she has to even play Qualies.
She won't have to play qualifiers for much longer but she still needs to get her ranking higher. And yes it was an unfortunate draw for Bethanie. She would have got into the main draw against alot of other opponents and Miami will be less colorful without her.
Ok Yari now go knockout some seeds in the main draw
