Re: USO series 2009

Shahar will play in LA ($700,000) Cincinnati($2,000,000) and Toronto-Canada according to her site


I'm guessing she will have to play qualies?
Maybe it will good for her though..

Re: USO series 2009

The sports sites talkbacks are pissing me off.
Saying Shahar can only beat injured players

I wish Shahar would stop playing so meh and prove them wrong.
I can't see it happenning against Petrova though..

I'm just hoping for a set at this point

Re: USO series 2009

Petrova beats Shahar in 2nd round in LA.


6-4 2-6 6-3

Interesting stats showing how close it was. Shahar actually had more total points won 112-110


Her downfall was Break Points won- 6 out of 22

Re: USO series 2009

Shahar led *3-2 in the 3rd. A great opportunity missed
Looking forward to the rest of the month. I still feel she's clearly underrated (and underranked) ATM.

I've stopped looking at these a long time ago, most of them are stupid football fans. The sad thing is that the writers are no better. There's hardly anyone at the Israeli press these days who knows something about tennis.

Re: USO series 2009

Sad to see Shahar playing in qualifier for Cincinnati.

Re: USO series 2009

A solid 6-2 6-4 over Amanmuradova to start with.
I'm actually satisfied that the road to MD will likely go through Govortsova, who upset her in their last two meetings, both on US hard courts (Stanford '07 and Memphis '08).

People are forgetting that she's been injured for more than 3 months - last October and almost the entire clay court season, in which she had no points whatsoever to defend (thanks Conchita ). That will not do too good to one's ranking.
With all the (in part justified) criticism and mediocrity, she still has 3 QFs and 2 SFs in her current tally.

Re: USO series 2009

Along with the Shvedova match, her worst result in a long time. I can't get why she struggles so much against this BBB.
