Re: Anastassia Rodionova Cheering Thread!!
Someone wrote a Toronto match report -
(9) Rodionova (RUS) vs. Czink (HUN)
Saw all of this match, although it was shortened. Czink had troubles with her serves, while Rodionova was hitting some service winners and aces in her games. Rodionova started off extremely well, eventually jumping out to a 5-2 lead through forcing Czink to make errors and through strong play with winners and hard serves. Rodionova also had a strong cheer from some people in the crowd, so I made sure to shout a "GO MELINDA!" and "YES!" after Czink hit some good shots. Czink made a comeback at the end of the first, breaking and holding for 4-5. However, Rodionova was able to regroup and win the set with some powerful points and some sloppy errors from Czink. Interesting note: Czink called for her coach at the end of the set. Second set, Czink started off strong, and was having chances to break Rodionova. At the start of the set, Czink called for a trainer to help with what appeared to be a wrist problem. All of a sudden, at 6-4 2-1, Czink got the trainer and had all sorts of testing done on her. She had her ear checked, her vital signs checked (heart pulse etc), and her wrists, and ultimately retired. One of the reasons I went to this match was to see if Rodionova and Czink would get bitchy. Well Rodionova did contest a few calls with the umpire and stare at certain calls and lines for like 30 seconds, but both players were generally calm and collected. Nothing like the stories we have heard before. No fans felt threatened, and Rodionova appreciated the non-Russian fans shouting out Russian sayings (well they didn't look Russian anyway). Such cheer ons as "NASTYA!" and Russian sayings
The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
