1st round $500K Shenzhen battle of vultures: Nina Bratchikova vs Julia Cohen

From the $25ks to meeting in a WTA MD

In 2012 these players had their career best season with Bratchikova reaching 3rd in both Australian Open and Roland Garros and Cohen playing her first WTA final in Baku both reaching the top 100 for the first time. But once you thought they would leave the $25K tournaments aside they kept playing them chasing for easy points but failed miserably, being unable to win any of those

Bratchikova played $25Ks in Nigeria(x2), Morocco, Belgium and India and was unable to reach even a single final losing in the first round twice. Cohen played $25K in USA(x2), Paraguay, Argentina and Chile and the best she could do was losing Santiago final while losing twice in the first round and once in the second round.

So which vulture will prevail in China?


But I, being poor, have only my dreams
I have spread my dreams under your feet
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

Boo to this thread.

Nina had a great Aussie season last year, it should be something to herald!

BARBIE

Which followed with a first round exit at $25K Rabat a month later

Better to be an overachiever like Nina, than a consummate underachiever like Dani

Yeah, better to have a career like Bratchikova than one like Hantuchova

WTA open the new season with a Highlight

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: 1st round $500K Shenzhen battle of vultures: Nina Bratchikova vs Julia Cohen

Bratchikova obviously

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

Nina is a much better player imo than Julia, so I think she will take this.
