MOSCOW, Russia - One of Russia's best made a strong start to her home tournament in Moscow on Monday, as Nadia Petrova cruised through her first round at the Kremlin Cup in 48 minutes.

Petrova, a former finalist at this event and the No.5 seed this year, allowed wildcard Yana Buchina two holds of serve in the first set but apart from that was always in control, particularly in the 17-minute second set, in which she lost only five points. She won, 62 60.

"The first match of a tournament is always tough and I was playing an opponent I did not know well. She is young so you never know what to expect," Petrova said. "I felt a little bit rusty in the beginning but then I started to play my game. I have a lot to work on, but am happy to be on to the next round."

Having finished 2008 ranked No.11, Petrova comes into this week after an average season ranked No.17. But she comes in off a strong showing in her last event, beating Serena Williams en route to the semifinals of Beijing. It was her second semi of the year, following a final four in April at Ponte Vedra Beach.

Next for Petrova will be Alona Bondarenko, who beat Anna Chakvetadze, 64 63. Chakvetadze beat Petrova in the 2006 final here, but was edged by the feisty Bondarenko on Monday.

"I've played Alona many times and they were all tough matches," said Petrova, who is 2-1 against the Ukrainian, the loss coming in their most recent meeting, at Cincinnati this summer. "I'll need to be proactive and dictate play."
Good luck vs A.Bondarenko, Nadia!

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: The Nadia Petrova Cheering Thread vol.2

Nadia lost in 2 sets. So after beating Serena, she backpedaled a lot.

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

Re: The Nadia Petrova Cheering Thread vol.2

I'm very happy for Nadia.2009 has been a difficult season for her,that she can finish it on such a positive note.It's second year she's crowned at kremlin cup doubles (last year with Srebotnik,I loved that team,I hope they will some day play together again).

Re: The Nadia Petrova Cheering Thread vol.2

Nadia
Sad that Nadia lost to A.Bondarenko in Round 2.

Congrats for Moscow doubles title with Kirilenko, Nadia!

WTA doubles title #18!

Very happy that Nadia could finish the year 2009 with a title in her home town Moscow.
Hope this gives her confidence for 2010.

The SF was impressive: 6-0 6-0 vs A.Bondarenko/Voskoboeva!
6-2 6-2 in Final is also a very good score.

Russians Rule Moscow

October 26, 2009

Russians Maria Kirilenko and Nadia Petrova and Czechs Iveta Benesova and Barbora Zahlavova Strycova were victorious in doubles in the final two Sony Ericsson WTA Tour events of the year before the season finales in Doha and Bali.

Third-seeded Kirilenko and Petrova captured the Kremlin Cup on Saturday with a convincing 62 62 defeat of Maria Kondratieva and Klara Zakopalova in 56 minutes. Kirilenko and Petrova, who did not have to play a seeded team all week, now have two Tour titles together, having also won Cincinnati last year.

"Winning the doubles title here in Moscow is a nice way to end the season," said Petrova, who now has 18 Tour doubles titles in her career. "This is the second tournament I have played with Maria, and we had a lot of fun this week. Hopefully we can play together again soon."

"It's always nice to win here in Moscow, playing so close to home with the support of all the fans. It's good to end the season on a good note," said Kirilenko, who now has six Tour doubles titles to her name. "Maybe Nadia and I can team up again and try to win another title."

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Good Luck

Re: The Nadia Petrova Cheering Thread vol.2

From WTA site:

Who is your favorite men's player?
Nadia Petrova: "Roger Federer. Every tennis player dreams to play like him. He's such a great champion. And he also has the good looks!"

What do you think of Kim Clijsters' comeback?
Nadia Petrova: "It's great for tennis. A lot of people missed her and her game. She was always such a positive person and did so many good things for the Tour. It's great to see her back after having a kid. She's enjoying it too."

Do you have any pets?
Nadia Petrova: Not at the moment. I used to have a cat and I'm so much in love with dogs, so whenever I'm done with tennis I'll get one - probably a Chocolate Labrador. They're very friendly and very good with kids, and the dark chocolate color is so attractive to me.

Do you have a favorite board game?
Nadia Petrova: I've been learning Backgammon.

Did you ever play a musical instrument?
Nadia Petrova: No, but I wish I could play piano. My coach plays and it's just so beautiful and relaxing.

Nadia lost to Henin 76 62. Not a good sign for 2010

Re: The Nadia Petrova Cheering Thread vol.2

What was your favorite off-court activity at a tournament?

Nadia Petrova: I enjoy going to the Habitat for Humanity build sites and learning what it takes to build a house, also socializing with all of the volunteers.
