Vesnina is in the quarterfinals!

Anyone know what was wrong with Domi?

Vesnina has a very good game (according to her rank). Really deserves a place in the quarterfinal. Next: Jankovic???

She's been classified as an underachiever for the past three or four years, so maybe this could be a breakthrough?

For whatever reason it was all downhill for Domi after holding for 5-0 1st set.

She got up 40-0 on Vesnina's serve at 5-0 1st set but failed to break. Domi was 40-15 at 5-3 1st set but got broken. She was down 15-30 on Vesnina's serve at 5-4 but finally finished the set at 40-30.

Maybe not by you, but Vesnina has always shown promise. She reached the 4R in her first slam in 2006 and that year was a real breakthrough. She hasn't been able to deliver the past few years; I don't know the reasons for that though. This season has started out promising though I think she's 9-2 for the year

That's too bad for Domi. Elena's run now probably ends against Jankovic, but one of her best weeks.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

^ i know it doesnt really compare to her single match, but i was watching vesnina playing dubs against danka at the AO and she was pretty imo, if not 'pretty good' than, she was def alright, hit some good shots.

but poor domi she HAD a freaken bagel! well practically anyway i hope she's alright injury-wise n' all

soz for the double post. gotta admit, it was a great effort by vesnina to come back from almost getting bagelled in the 1st set to win the 2nd set quite comfortably, then have a nice lead in the 3rd set before domi retired
