I was close to winning, but i let it go in the last round. Needless to say, i never had another fight after that. I have had fights where i got smahsed, and It never bothered me because i was soundly beaten, and i had to accept that he was the better guy. But these close losses get to you. Knowing you were close, and that you could have beaten someone is devastating.

I hope Slava doesn't do what i did and give up on herself
She won't. She has worked too hard and she has a large support team around her to help her bounce back as quickly as possible. Losses like today's are part of tennis and if professional players started giving up on themselves after matches like this we wouldn't have any players left because all of them have had games like this. One poster pointed out how this result was similar to how disappointing the Lisicki/Kerber match must have been for Lisicki, but we saw how well Lisicki bounced back ourselves today. No reason Slava can't do the same thing.

Slava lost a match. But she didn't hurt herself and she will be ready to fight another day.

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

I'm pretty sure she'll bounce back. But it's a tough situation for sure. I just don't want her to give up like i did. I'm certain she won't though, and a good USO run will put her back on track

Yeah, Slava looks alright. You can't keep a smile like that down for long. She will be fine.

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

There goes my semi final prediction

It's a shame about her draw really. To draw Lisicki in the 2nd round (when it's on grass) is unlucky, and even if she got through her, she'd still have a hard time getting to the semis.

But she seems to be finding more consistency. A good RG and Wimbledon showing, losing to top players. She got a unlucky draw in the Olympics, and lost to a grass court specialist. But in these matches, she matched her opponent for the majority of the match, which is good signs. She just needs to turn one of these close matches into wins. A great place to start would be with the USO. If she keeps it up, she should make the top 20 by this time next year

She is still the Golden girl. Achieving the Golden set is harder than winning a gold medal.

Well put. Loads of people can say they have won a gold medal. How many can say that they have achieved a golden set in a grand slam?

Only 1

Exactly. That's my point. Achieving it vs a top 10 and GS finalist makes her golden set even more impressive. She will always be the Golden Girl.
