Watching her match, she's very cute. Has that girl next door vibe.

Re: Moscow Queen Margarita Gasparyan Cheering Court!

Oh yes I agree Skoo. Very promising game, beautiful backhand, cute and long legged. What's not to like? I like Lucie but I was impressed. She does need to get a bit faster and improve her accuracy on groundies so that she can open the court a bit more. Her serve could become a big weapon if she improves it a bit.

Yup, yup, perhaps a little bit more pace, too, here and there. But it's already enough to do damage, I guess. I like Lucie, too, but I wouldn't have mind an upset Oh, and people might pick on her rather scary "come on" Of course, that's irrelevant.

I think so too, it's enough pace but more would be nice, especially on the fh. It didn't feel like her fh was bigger than the bh at all, and it should be really, even though she clearly can generate quite a lot of pace on the bh side.

It felt like it was too easy for Lucie to beat her with a fh dtl. She needs to get faster to cover that kind of thing. And her sliced defensive bhs were in general landing a bit too short.

Her come on is a bit like Kvitty's "pojd!". I presume she's saying a Russian word but you never know, it might just be a sound she likes to make.

I think I saw one or two faster inside-out FHs, but you're probably right. At first, I thought she can hit only that defensive slice on the BH, but then she started hitting those beauties I'm probably exaggerating, but it could be the most beautiful BH there is.

Very much like Kvitty's, I'd say, and that's why I thought they'll pick on it. It sounded pretty much like come on to me, but then again, I don't know too many Russian words. We'll know someday

Re: Moscow Queen Margarita Gasparyan Cheering Court!

Wow Some people rather than just me and the odd poster in a lower tier Russian thread! I like it!

Margarita ranked #227 took a set off of Lucie, and lost in three, 36 64 26. If she plays more tournaments out of Russia next year, it will be interesting to see how quickly she climbs!

Re: Moscow Queen Margarita Gasparyan Cheering Court!

Love a one handed backhand so I'll be following her from now on. Very good first serve too.

The only other young player I've seen with a one-handed bh is Naomi Broady, and Margarita has far more promise!

Re: Moscow Queen Margarita Gasparyan Cheering Court!

I liked too what I saw from her. She is a bit "raw" with her shots and footwork, but impressive.
Looking forward to see her in top200 and 100.
