Bepa

She led 6-1* in the TB, then lost the next 4 points . The 2nd set was much better

Звонарёва ~ Павлюченкова
Петрова ~ Клейбанова
Сафина ~ Кириленко

I know I nearly had a heart attack in the TB, because she had 6-1

Anyhoo

It seemed like a lesson in Howtobuggerupatiebreak, but Franny is always a fighter!

Re: Beijing R2: Vera Zvonareva def. Fran. Schiavone - H2H 8-0 !!!

another small step towards YEC over Aga.
well done Vera - capitalizing well against opponents she should be beating.

it would have been a phenomenal year had she done the slightest better at the slams. with the mandatory events taking up so much of her best other pointers out, she really is under-ranked in the 52 week system.

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.

I don't agree with you. Although I really like Vera and I do think she has been having a great year (she has returned to top 10 so that's awesome), I don't agree when you say she is under-ranked. She clearly belongs to the bottom of top 10 (at least for now) because she gets some nice results in many tournaments but she really sucked in Grand Slams and, like it or not, those are the stages that really matter.

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.

not only did Bepa bagel Fran, but she also won 2 games more than necessary.

Vera would move somewhat up the rankings if she had lost in the slams only to players who were ranked higher than her.

If Vera made it to the 3rd round at the Australian Open and lost to Vaidisova, made it to the 4th round of Wimbledon and lost to Jankovic, and made it to the quarterfinals of the US Open and lost to Jankovic, she would be ranked #8 and have 2504 ranking points, which is 366 ranking points from #7 Kuznetsova.
