USO R2: [7] Vera Zvonareva def. Anna Chakvetadze, 3-6 6-1 6-1

Some great rallies & variety.

Slow start from Vera but she really picked it up as the match went on. She's still not playing with the form she had pre-injury but she's getting there & has got back some of the muscle she lost! Her movement is still not great though.

Good luck against Elena.

Anna, looks to be finally coming out of her slump.
Although she didn't finish nearly as well as she started.

W/UE Ratio:
Bepa: 25-21
Anna: 13-29



Vera Zvonareva * Ana Ivanović * Li Na * Laura Robson ......

Zvonereva beats Chakvetadze 3-6, 6-1, 6-1

Zvonereva just took care of business in the last 2 sets. Chakvetadze was forced to play too much defense in the last 2 sets. Zvonereva is a executor on the court.

Nice to see Anna taking a set of a Top ten player. Hopefully she'll start to get some more wins under her belt soon

Congrats Vera and GL in 3R

Really stunning play from Vera in the last two sets, barely an error, great defense and offense.

cant say im not dissapointed after the 1st set, but vera played well and anna went into mental meltdown again.

still with chakvetadzes year i'll take a 2nd round and the 100 points. shes in the doubles so i hope she can go out there and just enjoy playing the doubles, she looks like the weight of the world straddles those nimble shoulders.

Seriously, if you have nothing productive to say, don't share. Just don't. It doesn't make you funny or interesting, just makes you a mean, spiteful person.

Pretty good match, despite the mental collapse from Anna after the early break in the 2nd... Anna at least showing the game is all still there, just what's between the ears that is causing all the problems. In fact a glance to Zvonareva's mental transformation might really help Anna... learning to play the point and not just freak out as soon as things stop going her way. Congrats to Vera, she really stepped up and took control as Anna faded and didn't give her much of a chance to get back into the match.

Please keep up the regrouping Anna... work with a sports psychologist please!
