Well done, Vera! I am not worried about her temper, because of her age. If she has not harnessed that energy to work for her better in 5 years, I will be oconcerned!

It seems to me that Vera is always a step ahead of Sveta Kuznetsova. Today, again she got her first final and Sveta squandered her chance. Given that Vera has very good nerves ( remember, she won Russian championships over Bovina a couple of years ago from something like a set and 1:5 down ), I would be surprised very little if she goes away with the first title tomorrow. Palermo is a good omen for getting first title for a Russian girl. Vera is not the first on that road...

But to win in Palermo may be a bad omen for further career as well I hope it`s just a coincedence though Go Vera!!!

But winning it is still better than not winning it. If Nastya didn't win it in 1999, it would probably have been Alyona who'd get it then. What would it change? Alyona avoided winning Palermo, Nastya didn't. What is between them now? Two places, two hundred points and one title. Not much..

Best of luck to Vera in the final

Should she try and give Mariana her own moonballs back? Or just try and out hit her?

Hope she handles the pressure well, as she is expected to win.

ys, Im hoping that in a years time Sveta will be where Vera is, if not higher. Vera is a year older I guess, and that makes a bit of a difference...but it just makes me think...how damn good Lina was at an even younger age than what those 2 are now! (& Lina is only slightly older than Vera)

Good luck Vera!!!

even if she doesn't win today, she'll still move up to #69 (from current #84). Besides Sveta will move up to approx #43 in the Race to Chase.

Vassilissa is my girl............
