Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

Less than 3 hours from now, Vera Dushevina will play one of the biggest matches she has ever faced. She gave Caroline a major problem at Roland Garros until the 3rd set was suspended for the next day. Dushevina has an excellent to hand back hand shot. Her personality is the same after each point. Vera is getting better and better. Tonight we will find out how much better. Tonight Vera faces Sledge Hammer Williams.

Re: Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

Venus will completely pummel her and her puffball strokes off the court. The only reason she gave Wozniacki trouble was because Wozniacki was playing 10k Pago Pago level tennis and letting Dushevina dominate. Once she woke up and actually started playing properly , Vera was completely overpowered.

Re: Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

Vera had a brilliant chance one year ago but she blowed it and then Coin got her lucky ticket.
I don't see any opportunities for Vera now.

Douchevina's forehand is such a mess.

And she's a bit of a headcase, I can't see Venus letting her get away with anything, especialy under the lights at Flushing meadows. No way, she hasn't lost to a nobody there maybe ever.

Re: Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

I thought she's already made a name for herself based on her last name having douche in it

Re: Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

This is, as Spirlea so eloquently put it, the "f@#%ing VENUS WILLIAMS" here. And this is a Grand Slam, isn't it? It is? Venus in 2, out of there in an hour and 15 minutes.

Re: Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

Anyone with a serve and forehand like Dushevina's, is in trouble against Venus Williams.

Her game is as under-developed as it was at junior level.

Re: Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

It's going to be 5-6 games at most for Vera.

Re: Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

venus has a habit of blowing opponents in the first set and then goes to sleep, lately she has forgotten to wake up beofre the match point.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

Re: Dushevina has a chance to make a name for herself

It depends on Vee, and not on Vera. If Vee starts making too many errors. anything can happen.
