Re: The Valeria Savinykh Cheering Thread!

Wonder how she is doing, she is not in any QD of the pre-tournament for Oz. Don't think she will have a MD WC for any of these. So she just might go to Oz for the AO, where she qualifying points to defend of course. Hope she is OK, as she withdrew last minute in Ankara.

Fair enough . Going deep here means no qualies for AO though.

Re: The Valeria Savinykh Cheering Thread!

She is QD indeed in Hobart . She plays countrywoman Nina Bratchikova in the first round. Tough, but not impossible, go Lera

Re: The Valeria Savinykh Cheering Thread!

Valeriya was beset by injuries in 2012, and although she briefly broke into the Top 100 for the first time, she ultimately ended the year ranked lower than in 2011.
2012 145
2011 133

I saw Valeriya play at the USO, and my honest opinion is that she's not really Top 100 material, unless she works on her fitness and serve, but maybe she'll prove me wrong in 2013.

Her Sydney q-draw:

(3)Nina Bratchikova (RUS) v Valeria Savinykh (RUS)
(wc)Stephanie Bengson (AUS) v Sacha Jones (AUS)
Marie-Eve Pelletier (CAN) v Julia Glushko (ISR)
Yue-Yue Hu (CHN) v (5)Lauren Davis (USA)

I think this is a good draw for Lera. Nina has been mentally shaky, a total 160 from last year, and Lera leads their h2h 1:0. Although that match was on clay, if she comes into the match healthy and confident, she has a reasonable chance to pull the upset.

Re: The Valeria Savinykh Cheering Thread!

Nina is a headcase so she can definitely beat her (if Julia Cohen managed to do so ).
Who is scaring me a bit is Sacha Jones.

Anyways, DAVAYYY

Re: The Valeria Savinykh Cheering Thread!

Only see the live scoring, but looks like fighting Lera is back! She was a set down and 1-5 in the second, saved MP's at 3-5 down and just won the second set 7-5. We know Nina is a headcase sometimes, but it takes some fighting and believing to come back like that. Now take the match Lera!

Re: The Valeria Savinykh Cheering Thread!

She lost 3rd set 6-4 . Well, hope that second set gave her some confidence, off to Melbourne now I guess.

Re: The Valeria Savinykh Cheering Thread!

Here is Lera's draw for AO:

(2)Monica Puig (PUR) v Qiang Wang (CHN)
(wc)Priscilla Hon (AUS) v Valeria Solovieva (RUS)
Valeria Savinykh (RUS) v Victoria Larriere (FRA)
Nastassja Burnett (ITA) v (19)Anastasia Rodionova (AUS)

She has a winnable first round, which is good, but for the rest she has a tough draw, with Rodionova second round and for qualifying Puig. With her current results I will be happy she wins her first round, but will keep my expectations not too high. Good luck, Lera, davay!

Re: The Valeria Savinykh Cheering Thread!

Given her current form, Q1 win is not even given, and even if Rodionova loses her Q1 match, Burnett will be a tough one as well. Why did she have to get in Puig's section?

Anyway, davay davay davay, hope she's full of energy and motivation, she really needs it.
