on-court crying, breaking rackets, shouting ... and because of that she forgets to play her game

Re: Vera Zvonareva has the mental strength of a napkin

The real question is: will YOU ever group up? :erm:

Serena. Simona. Ana. Petra. Venus.
Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.
Martina Hingis - "No one else played like Hingis - no one could."

Re: Vera Zvonareva has the mental strength of a napkin

I was thinking more a bottle of Sprite, but whatever.

I have seen her fight plenty of times, but as you saw today, often goes in the big matches on the really big stages. I saw her fight through two great matches in Charleston and then give Serena all she could handle in the final. It is really all mental for her, I guess the big occassion just gets to her.

Re: Vera Zvonareva has the mental strength of a napkin

But why a napkin and not a hatstand or a caterpillar?

Re: Vera Zvonareva has the mental strength of a napkin

It's such a shame that she had great preparation for the French and then couldn't hold her nerve against a fellow Russian. That was the hard thing for her.

Re: Vera Zvonareva has the mental strength of a napkin

It depends, sometimes her mental strength is like the quicker picker upper. But most other times, she is like Royale.

I am a supporter of Serenus Justinpovanovic.
