Re: Vera Dushevina Cheering Club !!!!!!!

...and she's out of Toronto
6-2,2-6,2-6
coasted to the first set, breaking Alla 3 times, and only dropping her own serve once, and then...
Is she playing in NewHaven?

Congratulations to Vera on winning her first WTA singles title in Istanbul. It was well deserved and long overdue.

Vera is up a break on Vernus 2-1 in the first set and Venus has injured her left knee and took an injury timeout.

Re: Vera Dushevina Cheering Club !!!!!!!

Vera took the first set from Venus in a tiebreak after serving for the set at 5-4 and 6-5. Vera is playing well off the ground. Her backhand is really good.

Re: Vera Dushevina Cheering Club !!!!!!!

Vera lost to Venus in 3 sets and Vera almost won the match in straight sets. Seeing Vera play and compete so well on the big stage in New York against Williams makes me wonder why Vera hasn't done better than she has to this point in her career. Is it coaching? I don't know. But Vera should be a much better player than she has been. There is no reason she couldn't have been a top 20 player and won a few titles by 2009 like Maria Kirilenko has.

Re: Vera Dushevina Cheering Club !!!!!!!

Poor Vera . She played really well. Her backhand was really nice, deep and rhythmic.

I think she hasn't done better before because she is improving now, and she didn't use to play this well. These last few months I have noticed an improvement in her game, more power, less errors off the ground. She hit really well on the run today as well. A while ago her fh used to let her down a lot, it has been better recently.

Re: Vera Dushevina Cheering Club !!!!!!!

Vera played well, except for when it was time to win the match.
It's a pass/fail. You win and move on or you lose.
Vera has to finish off a match like this. That's why she's not ranked higher.
She definately has top 20 groundstrokes.

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
