Re: Cheering thread: Moscow - WD champion with Makarova!

Vesnina is probably the only top Russian who's never fulfilled her potential, only watching as her contemporaries go on to greater successes. She ended 2012 at her lowest ranking since 2008. Will she ever show what she is capable of?
YER
2012 69
2011 57

Again, playing Auckland, Elena has Rd16 points to defend. Here's her draw:

(1)Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) v Kristina Mladenovic (FRA)
Simona Halep (ROU) v Arantxa Rus (NED)
(wc)Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) v Elena Vesnina (RUS)
Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino (ESP) v (6)Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ)

She should get by Eugenie, and potentially Yari, before falling to Aga.

Re: Cheering thread: Moscow - WD champion with Makarova!

I see her reaching QF, but you never know with her

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.
Grammatikopoulou ~ Papamichail ~ Sakkari
I'm obsessed with the Greek players. Deal with it.

She plays Shvedova next. Leads the h2h 1:0.

Re: Cheering thread: Auckland - QF vs Halep or Radwanska!

Lena had a much better match against Yari, upsetting her 2 & 3! Now a QF against Simona or Aga.

Re: Cheering thread: Auckland - QF vs Halep or Radwanska!

It will be Aga, who leads their h2h, 2:1. Uphill battle, Aga has won their previous two matches, and Elena has never beaten her on a hardcourt.

Re: Cheering thread: Auckland - QF vs Halep or Radwanska!

Lena traditionally likes playing in Auckland, I'm not that surprised she has played quite well once more. But very difficult against Aga. Lena does have the ability to beat her but she needs one of her "once or twice a season" red hot matches.
