Nadia's hard-courts season

So Nadia begins her U.S. hard courts campaign in D.c. this week.
the field is not great and she has a very good chance of winning the title IMO if she plays well.
She's the second seed and opens against a qualifier
By the way, by reaching the 4th round at Wimbledon, she made her 20th second week of a slam..amazing

SUPPORTING DANIELA HANTUCHOVA,JELENA JANKOVIC,ALONA BONDARENKO, NADIA PETROVA, PETRA CETKOVSKA, EKATERINA MAKAROVA, VERA ZVONAREVA, KAROLINA PLISKOVA, ALEX DULGHERU, KIKI MLADENOVIC AND ITALIAN GIRLS

Re: Nadia's hard-courts season

Nadia won her College Park R1 match 6-2 6-2

There should be a livestream for R2 vs Bouchard, starting in 30 mins!

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: Nadia's hard-courts season

It was so nice to see Nadia play well vs Bouchard!

Now comes the first real test in QF vs Top 60 player Jovanovski. C`mon!

Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Re: Nadia's hard-courts season

Nadia Petrova - Irina Falconi 1:6 6:1 6:3

After a complete waste first set, Nadia turned the match around!

Next one in the final is Shahar Peer (I hoped for a match against Tamira) but ok, I think Nadia can win here if she plays well!

Some things need a woman's touch!
Some things need a russian touch!
I need a touch from Nadia Petrova!

Re: Nadia's hard-courts season

Great fight back, Nadia! And great to see her in a WTA final again!

Quote:
As for Petrova, she wasn't quite as close to defeat as Peer, but also dropped the first set in her 16 61 63 win over Irina Falconi.

"My concentration was not there. My reactions were not there," Petrova said of her slow start. "I felt half a second late to react to the ball. I knew I had to be more light on my feet and get in a groove, and that's what I tried to do. Breaking her right away in the second set helped get my confidence and game back and I played solid from there until the end."

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