Talking Bepa reaches 4r at Australian Open

Udachi Bepa

She cruised through her first two rounds, with easy wins over Czech Zuzana Ondraskova and Hungarian Melinda Czink.

Today she ousted Nicole Pratt Although she did become psychotic in the second set, just belting everything and then getting dejected when they wern't going in She did show maturity in the third to regain her composure and smash Nicole off court

Next up for Bepa is Davenport. Yay . Although she did nearlly beat Lindsay last week in Sydney, eventually falling 7-5 in the third, so that should give her confidence knowing that she can mix it with her.

Udachi Bepa Get into the Quarters

The only bad thing: It looks as though Vera has some sort of wrist injury (the left one) as it was heavily strapped today against Pratt and throughout the match she was grimacing and constantly stretching it.

Vera has had her left wrist taped since at least last year. It's not as a result of anything that happened during the match today. In fact, I managed to get a piece of strapping tape from her wrist after she practised in Sydney .

Her wrist did seem to be causing her some discomfort in the second set, but she seemed to put it out of her mind in the third. Her backhand was still as as ever, yet I did see her rubbing her wrist as she sat down near the end of the match. Hopefully she can get it treated and it will be fine for her next match.

Q. What changed the match in the third set, do you think?

VERA ZVONAREVA: I think I just finally found my game. I started to play a little bit more aggressive and without mistakes. I think because I had much more mistakes in the first and the second set. I think that's why it was 6-1 in the third.

Q. Brad Gilbert mentioned today he didn't believe that the world's No. 1 woman could defeat the top one thousand men. Do you think those sorts of comments are helpful to the women's competition?

VERA ZVONAREVA: I don't know, is tough questions. But why should you always ask about the men's and women's tennis? I mean, it's really different. Like you take any other sport: sometimes you have a men's sport, you don't have women's sport. For gymnastics, you have women's sport and you don't have men's sport. So I don't that think you should -- he just should have talking about this because just biologically, women, they're different from men. Sometimes we can see really interesting matches in women's tennis, and sometimes we can see really interesting matches in men's tennis. I wouldn't even think about this question.

Q. Did you think that Nicole was affected by the injury at all?

VERA ZVONAREVA: When I was on the court, I wasn't thinking about this, I was just thinking about my game. So I don't know what's going on with her. But I hope everything is fine. But when I'm on the court, I don't really think. Just trying to do my best on the court.

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

I can't believe the scoreline in which she lost to Lindsay, WTF happened? Lindsay however did play solidly, but surely Vera could've managed more than 4 games.

Anywho, Vera was psychotic towards the end of the match as usual, and even shed a few tears at the end of the match

Poor girl.
