California

I had to start a new thread because of this result at Stanford -

Lioudmila Skavronskaia (RUS) d. Petra Mandula (HUN), 3-6, 6-2, 6-3.

Udachi Lioudmila!! Wow!

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

And one more win would get he a US Open direct acceptance. But that is a match against Davenport.

Can she get that later in the summer? I think that's $10 grand, just for showing up.

Alina lost rather feebly

Liouda is on a Great run, best of her career
16 wins in a row
including qualifiying for a 25k, winning that
then flying across to US, and winning a 50k the next week.

go Liouda
she's a 6ft 2" giant too

Good luck to my favs

I think that the best we can get out of this tournament is Elena L. making semis. She can do i. It will do wonders to her rankigns.

And Lioudmila is 24. She's showing that it's never too late to improve. I hope she can keep this going.
Mandula has a huge game. That's a great win.

Lindsay could be rusty. And Lyuda is on a roll. This could be ... a match.

I didn't realize she was playing so well -

Maybe she'll give us a report.

These two, and Lena B., those are tall women.

Lioudmila, log in and tell us how you improved your game. Is it mental? A new coach?
What happened?

I don't know, but she has to be near the top 100 now. Once she gets in there and stays there, it's direct entry to all 4 majors.
Then she can make a living at this sport. I don't mean to count Lioudmila's money, but it's exciting to me for a player to get into the top 100. That's when the real game of pro tennis begins.

if Lioudmila can sneak into the top 100, she'll be the 15th Russian in the top 100!!!
