Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

So far it's been okay. Slava/King look more comfortable on serve than their opponents so far

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

Okay, giving away that first set was totally unnecessary (can't spell this word haha)

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

They lost the first set 6-4. Slava was the one who got broken in the last game. Slava wanted to challenge a call, but i think she left it too late

Thanks for wishing me a good holiday, but my holiday is done after today

You can tell she's a lovely person though. She does come across as a genuinely nice person, and not fake like some other sportsmen or women do.
Ah she looks cute but what's in her neck? Hahah

Btw, too much prettyness on Grandstand now: Slava, Julia and Eva. Wish I was there

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

Peschke and Goerges were amazing today. Vania and Slava didn't play anywhere near their best (Peschke and Goerges pushed them in defence mode which worked pretty well)

Yeah, they played a good game. Congrats to them.

Slava and Vania

Serve let them down today. They started out well on their serve, but it soon faded. It was a close first set, which they may have lost due to a bad line call (Slava looked convinced it was out)

Again, Slava's serve was a liability

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

Wasn't a good tournament for Slava. 2nd and 3rd round exits. Hopefully, she can re-find the form from Wimbledon and RG in time for the Australian Open (where she should be seeded)

Well, lets see if she is complacent and is satisfied to have a 2nd/3rd round type of career and mostly get her pickings in doubles, or whether she's prepared to adjust mentally and go for whats rightly hers.
Yeah, Roberta came into this tournament playing great and she was always going to be Slava's main obstacle to getting to the quarters or beyond. Had Slava taken her match point against Vinci, I don't believe Cibulkova or Radwanska would have presented Slava with anymore problems than they presented Roberta. And had it been a Slava v Sara quarter we call only remember what happened the last time those two met.

It is disappointing. Slava is playing well but to go deep in tournaments you have to be able to win the close ones sometimes and at the moment Slava just doesn't seem to be able to do that. It's either an easy 2-0 or a heartbreaking 1-2. Having said all that I'm happy for Roberta and Sara. Both are class acts and both have a lot of skill and are enjoyable players to watch.

Re: Yaroslava Shvedova

Seeing Vinci and Errani in the QF makes her loss even more disappointing. Damn.
