Is Doha turning into a fairytale story for Bepa?

Who could forget Bepa's start to the year. She started the year great winning 6/7 matches all of them in straight sets (with just that unfortunate loss to Marina Erakovic in 3 tight sets). Then she had to withdraw before the final of Hobart after picking up an injury at training only a matter of hours before. Then the Australian Open wasn't much better, she had to withdraw from injury in her first round match. Doha is her first tournament back and she's so far posted some impressive wins over Fran and Dinara - both of who she was expected to loose too. Next up for her is Sybille Bammer, and then either Li or Jankovic

Do you think Doha has/will be a fairytale for the most entertaining women's player of all time?

Thank you for everything Mercedes, now please be nice to Socrates for me, perhaps fetch him a bird or two. We love you, always.

Re: Is Doha turning into a fairytale story for Bepa?

I would be chuffed if Vera made the final. (but she's not beating Maria again if both get there )

She has a pretty good chance I think.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaï
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

To be completely honest I would still classify it as a fairytale story for her even if she looses the final, it's been absolutely ages since she has had a good run at a Tier I event. The last time she progressed this far in a Tier I event was Charleston event last year...she retired injured and then missed 3 months of action including both RG and Wimbledon

A fairytale which will end with the evil stepmother (Sharapova) beating her into submission.

Re: Is Doha turning into a fairytale story for Bepa?

I love Vera. I love her game.

She was hyped a lot when she was young and never really came close to achieving what people expected of her. And these days she's overlooked and underrated by most. She is a beautiful hitter of the ball and can move so well too. She's had so much bad luck throughout her career with health and injuries, so it's nice to see her in the QF of a Tier I and hopefully further.

Re: Is Doha turning into a fairytale story for Bepa?

Vera has a great chance of reaching the final of this tournament, because she´s the best player of her quarter when her game is on... if she keeps her head straight and stops crying on the court, she might reach the final, but we have to wait

ITF: “She is the sole author of her own misfortune.”
