The 2 weeks on grass: ´s-Hertogenbosch & Wimbledon 2012

Let´s forget about clay and Bad Gastein. It´s time for grass, a surface that should suit Yanina´s style of game more. Here´s the draw in Rosmalen:

(1)Samantha Stosur (AUS) v (Q)Kirsten Flipkens (BEL)
Yanina Wickmayer (BEL) v (Q)Daria Gavrilova (RUS)
Monica Niculescu (ROU) v Barbora Zahlavova (CZE)
Eleni Daniilidou (GRE) v (6)Roberta Vinci (ITA)

(3)Dominika Cibulkova (SVK) v Alexandra Cadantu (ROU)
Shahar Peer (ISR) v (Q)Akgul Amanmuradova (UZB)
Simona Halep (ROU) v Anabel Medina Garrigues (ESP)
(wc)Kiki Bertens (NED) v (8)Nadia Petrova (RUS)

(7/wc)Jelena Jankovic (SRB) v Sofia Arvidsson (SWE)
(wc)Arantxa Rus (NED) v Pauline Parmentier (FRA)
(Q)Urszula Radwanska (POL) v Ksenia Pervak (KAZ)
Olga Govortsova (BLR) v (4)Flavia Pennetta (ITA)

(5)Maria Kirilenko (RUS) v Francesca Schiavone (ITA)
Iveta Benesova (CZE) v Irina-Camelia Begu (ROU)
Romina Oprandi (SUI) v Kim Clijsters (BEL)
Kateryna Bondarenko (UKR) v (2)Sara Errani (ITA)

She´ll play tomorrow,and Sam´s already lost to Kirsten

It happened to be Yanina herself

Yeah, well maybe she learned the hard way now that DON'T PLAY ON CLAY during the 4 grass weeks.

She wanted confidence, but why look for it in the mountains when there was freaking Birmingham. I just won't know.

Gosh. What day is it today?!

Let's say that I'm not excepting much from Wimbledon now. Sucks.

To put it mildly

I'm more afraid of another beatdown by some random player.

Re: The 2 weeks on grass: ´s-Hertogenbosch & Wimbledon 2012

wow Yanina d. Sveta in Wimbly 1r 62 63

Unexpected result and scoreline,Yanina isn´t used to win that easy . Great stats,no DFs,21-7 in W/UEs...just a perfect day it was

Voskoboeva next. Gotta sought revenge for what happened in Australia

I cannot believe my eyes And I don't know how I missed this match

Come on, Yanina!!!

Don't lose to Voskoboeva again. But she probably does that next, after getting our hopes up..

Re: The 2 weeks on grass: ´s-Hertogenbosch & Wimbledon 2012

4-6 6-3 8-6 over Voskoboeva
R3 against Paszek. I like Yanina more but Tamira is on fire and I would love her to defend her QF points so I'm not cheering for anyone in this one

Daniilidou. Venus. Azarenka. Halep. Wickmayer.
Cornet. Ivanovic. Vesnina.. Vaidisova. Krajicek.
Paszek. Begu. Cirstea. Lisicki. Pavlyuchenkova.
Pironkova. Stephens. Tatishvili. McHale. Flipkens.

Yanina .Hope she can defeat Paszek,but the Austrian is full of confidence and loves to come from behind .GL and already a win would be a huge surprise IMO

BTW I don´t know why she ever bothers to play doubles. She clearly sucks or doesn´t give a fuck or maybe both

Re: The 2 weeks on grass: ´s-Hertogenbosch & Wimbledon 2012

62 67 57 against Paszek.

So frustrating Yanina should have won this match in 2 sets, really 3rd set was especially frustrating. Yanina went down a break for 0-2, evened it to 2-2, then lost another two games for 2-4, managed to get up 5-4, and was serving for the match, instead lost 3 games in a row from there. She was working the points up so well in that 3rd set, and then ended them up with an error (usual pattern). Just terrible. Well, in the end of 2nd set Paszek got a bit lucky when she was serving to stay in the match at 5*-6, and then a net cord in the TB too. The crowd was also heavily in favor of Paszek.

But I'm still glad Yanina got to the 3rd round given how it's been. And she had two nice wins I hope this will give her confidence, and she'll find some form for the 2nd half of the season
