Tashkent F: Princess Alla def. Elena 64 64


Great, well deserved victory. Alla's serve and FH were on fire, and to be honest her opponent had not much of a clue what to do about it. In fact Alla's suspicious movement, BH, 2nd serve, complete lack of retrieving skills could be all well exposed, but Elena seemed not to be aware of Alla's flaws. Kudryavsteva was also more patient during the long rallies and was hitting with lots of precision, and few UEs even though there is little margin in her flat groundies.


edit: Alla was #103 2 weeks ago and now she'll reach career high at approx. #57

Re: Tashkent F: Alla def. Elena 64 64

Vesnina will never win a WTA title. She played like 10% of what she's capable of and let Kudryavtseva ball bash her left and right.

Horrible "match" (it was more a ball bashing competition than a tennis match), the same level of the tournament, so that's ok.

Re: Tashkent F: Alla def. Elena 64 64

Vesnina will definitely be unhappy about that much. BUT Alla was so focused and her serve and returns were really working, even if they both had a good number of UEs.

F...F...F...F...F...F...!!!!!
That d.ft c.. will NEVER win a tournament
I need new faves. One Lena never will win a Grand Slam, the other will never win a tournament....

Such a great opportunity and she blew it........

Of course it is easy against players ranked 174, 165 and 163 but when your barely win against number 81 then lose in straights from number 82 in the final, it is fair to say Lena currently is barely a top 100 level player..

She needs to see a psychiatrist or something.....
[/rant]

Sorry about that, just had to get it of my chest. But oooooh Lena, how could you........
Poor girl, she must feel devestated..

Alla congratulations with your first title. A great tournament, truly deserved!!

Re: Tashkent F: Alla def. Elena 64 64

Alla served amazingly and gained confidence from such strong service games to player more freely when returning Elena's serve. Congrats on the first title.

But really Vesnina should have won a title by now...
