Nastya plays Gagliardi today. They've split two matches, both going three sets.
Nastya and Vera play Asa Svensson SWE and Meilen Tu USA in doubles.
So two matches today for the Russian #1.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

MELBOURNE (Reuters) - Sixth seed Anastasia Myskina swept past Emmanuelle Gagliardi 6-2 6-4 to advance to the third round of the Australian Open on Thursday.

The Russian, who reached the quarter-finals in Melbourne and at the U.S. Open last year, raced through the first set and secured the vital break in the seventh game of the second set after a wild forehand from her Swiss opponent.

Myskina squandered her first two match points, the second on a nervous double-fault, but another forehand error from Gagliardi wrapped up a comfortable victory for the 22-year-old from Moscow.

Okay, luckily I had the pleasure to watch Nastya's match with Gagliardi today
Here is very short report about it.
First Nastya has very pretty outfit and looks very good
With the match:
Nastya started very very strong with her great game. She was hitting very hard and precise and was hitting winners or forcing Gagliardi to make errors after her great shots. In the opening game she broke to love and then was playing so well, really. Almost wasn't making any mistakes but just playing strong and very smart game. She was just so calm and hitting strong and difficult shots with such a confidence She was just too good and took 5-0 lead and was serving for the match. Everything was great she had 40-15 but double faulted and the hit on the net..And here she started doing her famous things :P She lost that game and one after that but closed the set 6-2.
In the second set it started to be bit tougher. Anastasia seemed not to be so focus as she was at the beginning. But I think that's normal, when your shots are so good and you you you have so huga advantage it is just so hard to stay at the same level of concentration... Anyway she was winning her service games. It was funny to watch After every error, sometimes even that forced she was so mad at herself, talking to herself, throwing raquet, screaming and all those her things. She was just so pissed off. But she wasn't losing her serve games, actually in the middle of the set she won two in a row to love so it was still good. At 3-3 she finally broke Gagliardi and took advantage that let her win the match. She won her service game too and was leading 5-3 when Gagliardi was serving. We could see she really wanted to close this match at that moment but unfortunately hit a forhand few metres in aut and (that was funny) screamed veeery loud 'WHY ?????'
But the next game she was serving and with calm and confidence closed up the match 6-4 in second set.
In conclusion I can say that she is in really good form now. We could see how great she is able to play when she is well-focused in the first set. but just the opponent was much worse and that's clear she wasn't playing on that level whole match. But I think that when she will be playing with tougher opponents like Rubin or Kim she will be fine. Just her game in the first set was GREAT.

Thanks Nastya

Work hard, be yourself and have fun. - M.K.

I'm glad Nastya played well. This next match is important. A big part of the Sharapova hype is to belittle Nastya's accomplishments.
If Nastya loses, these tennis commentators will make it seem like being the Russian #1 for 2002 and 2003, and winning the KC, are nothing.

Nastya has to really focus for this match. I don't believe anything coming out of the Sharapova camp. They are all proven liars.
Nastya has to treat Maria as if she's totally healthy. Don't just try to run her around. Play your normal game.
Udachi Nastya!

Surely Myskina has already got more than enough much better, more professional and more effective advice from her own camp.

If both Maria and Nastya play their beest, it will be Nastya winning. Masha is good player but I don't really understand why she is such a big star, it's because of her look. Her tennis is very good but nothing better that other high ranked players. Nastya is #7 and she won all these things and she is Russian no.1 . If she plays like she did in first set in 2r she will win this match. Because which top players has Maria beat? Ok, she was winning Tier IV tournaments and was playing really well but to beat top ten player you have to play really great or need the opponent's errors.
In three words - Nastya should win
C'mon !!!!

Is it necessary to bark at Maria here? Let's talk about Nastia on her thread
