Re: Beijing R2: Vera Zvonareva def. Fran. Schiavone - H2H 8-0 !!!
Vera has reached the QF or better at all her non grand slam tournaments up to rome. that's a "wow" start.
in RG she played nonsense players all the way to the 4th roung where she couldn't capitalize against Dementieva on a brilliant surface for her with a real chance to go deeper yet.
and from there she collapsed all the way untill the olympics where she didn't beat anyone big (as opposed to the first half of the year where she did well against the top crop in the world) but started beating whom she *should* again.
the title win last week was another great confidence booster, and again nothing brilliant against anyone big.
this week is a good chance to show where she stands. is she a prospect to do something in the YEC, where i think she can do well - or will they use her to wipe the floor.
she beat capriati in one of her best ever matches a few years back to qualify by right to the YEC, this year she has another chance to do so, of course Venus will be favoured as WC (which i support) but she is one of the top8 this year in terms of bieng consistent - thats why she's not ranked high enough.
only Kuznetsova, Safina Jankovic and Dementieva played better tennis all year long.
anything remotely close to her actual abbilities at the slam and she'd be fighting for a top5 year end finish.
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.
