phew, that was close (as expected).

Now is as good a chance as any to make it to her first 4th round Daja has loads of points to defend so she knows she has to be on her guard. This will be a great match, but Im picking Anastasia in 3.

Best of luck Nastya

I wonder if Nastya knows how to hit passing shots.That seems to becoming a forgotten skill at WTA Tour. Bedanova played serve and volley for all match. I haven't seen the set two that Likhovtseva won, but in the sets 1 and 3 Alyona looked pretty clueless about how to pass Daja at net. That's strange for a doubles player of her class. On the other hand, Daja is very good at net. Nastya has to practice passing shots tomorrow.

Nastya can more than do good passing shots, she played great on the grass and had a pretty good time with her passing shots.


I hope she brings them into the game from the start of match

Nastya vs Daja is 1-1
Nastya won last meet in 3 sets in 2000

Good luck in 2016 to my favs

Great turnaround, but I hated to see Anastasia start so slowly again!

She is now just 3 points behind Dementieva. It's time to move ahead and get the rankings in the proper order now! You go, girl!

Nastya must have come out of the US Open with great determination to do better! Or maybe she just likes Brazil

In any case I hope she can trick and confuse Jelena, whose own game is pretty simple, if powerful.

Maybe Nastya should phone Elena B. for advice on how to beat her??

OMG, STILL unbeaten!
Nastya advances to the final 6-2, 6-4. And that includes a great fight back from a break down in the 2nd set -- started at 0-2 -- then from 1-4 down, Nasyta won the next 5 games!

This final is such a dream one for me, 2 of my faves facing off.

Nastya's third final of the year -- not bad! She has a good chance to win the title, too. Eleni almost collapsed with heat exhaustion today. I think Nastya is in better shape. And she may be fed up with losing in finals!
