Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova being given a huge push at the AO

Can anyone explain to me why Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova has been given such a big push at the Australian Open this year?

She played her first 2 matches on show courts and now her 3rd round is on Hisense, the second biggest court.

This isn't a hate thread but she isn't a big name yet, especially not here in Australia.

Can anyone help explain why she has been given superstar status this year, your average Australian Open patron has no idea who she is.

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova being given a huge push at the AO

I was also surprised, but pleased too since I'm a Nastya-fan I don't know... I mean I think this match vs. Benesova is more attractive than Radwanska-Halep for example and I don't know which match should replace this one.

Ka. PLISKOVA - E. SVITOLINA - E. VESNINA - A. PAVLYUCHENKOVA - T. BACSINSZKY
N. VAIDISOVA - D. HANTUCHOVA - T. GOLOVIN - A. BONDARENKO - A. SZAVAY - M. PIERCE

Maybe because she won the AO junior title two years in a row?
In 2006 defeating Caroline Wozniacki in the final.
In 2007 defeating Madison Brengle in the final.

The organizers are trying to get her popular here before her breakthrough

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova being given a huge push at the AO

Yeah but using that logic Vika and Barbora should be given big billing.

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova being given a huge push at the AO

She's stinking up the court now. Terrible. If she wants a big show court, win this match.

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

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova being given a huge push at the AO

if Safarova vs Kvitova a slam 2r match can be on Margaret Court Arena this yr........ then this is a 3rd rd match when there's only 8 womens matches played.

how did Kookie vs Safarova get on MCA ?
that would never make any TV court anywhere else especially for a 2r match.

Good luck to my favs
