Week of January 7th news thread.

I suggest that we were putting all news, scores, articles about Russian players ( including Juniors ) in this thread. No discussions in this thread, of course. Only info. I intend to create a thread per week. If you find a nice article, scores sheet, anything related to Russian players this week, please put it ( or a link to it ) into this thread. This way we will have some kind of retrospective on what was happening during particular week when we'll be willing to look back in a while.

I only found one article and it's in Russian. Thought I'd post it anyway.

Российские теннисисты активно готовятся к первому турниру "Большого Шлема".
На этой неделе наши теннисисты продолжили активную подготовку к Открытому чемпионату Австралии, который стартует на следующей неделе.
Елена Дементьева и Анна Курникова, принимающие участие на турнире "Adidas International" в Сиднее, Австралия, вынуждены были зачехлить ракетки уже на первых двух этапах.
Елена не смогла противостоять испанке Кончите Мартинеc, уступив со счетом 4-6, 6-3, 1-6, а Анна Курникова, благополучно преодолев первый круг, во втором также в трех сетах потерпела поражение от американки Серены Вильямс, посеянной под четвертым номером. Зато у Анны есть неплохие шансы в паре. Вместе со своей постоянной партнершей Мартиной Хингис, в первом круге они одержали верх над Жанет Ли (Тайвань) и Уэнне Пракуси (Индонезия) со счетом 6-4, 6-2.
"Самое главное для меня сейчас это не усугубить мою травму и достичь того уровня игры, которого я достигла до травмы", сказала Анна после победы в первом круге одиночного разряда.

Елена Лиховцева тоже предпочла играть в Австралии, только на турнире "Canberra Women's Classic" в Канберре. Посеянная под пятым номером, в первом круге ею была повержена Селима Сфар со счетом 6-3, 6-2.

Алина Жидкова остановила свой выбор на турнире в Хобарте, Австралия - "ANZ Tasmanian International". Она успешно вышла во второй круг, оставив позади Татьяну Пучек, 7-5, 6-2.

Что же касается наших мужчин, то Марат Сафин (1) и Михаил Южный в упорных поединках все-таки повергли своих соперников по первому кругу турнира "Heineken Open" в Окланде, Новая Зеландия. Марат нанес поражение Майклу Чангу, 2-6, 6-3, 6-4, а Михаил Южный выбил из борьбы Альберта Монтанеса, 4-6, 7-6(2), 6-2.

Евгений Кафельников на этой неделе в качестве подготовки к первому турниру "Большого шлема" принимает участие в показательном турнире "2002 Commonwealth Bank International". Помимо Евгения в турнире участвуют: Андре Агасси, Пит Сампрас, Томми Хаас, Томас Энквист, Тейлор Дент, Скотт Дрейпер и Алекс Корретха. Каждый игрок должен провести по три встречи в течение четырех дней. И первый матч Евгений играет завтра (9 января) против австралийца Скотта Дрейпера.

Some news on ALina Jidkova

From Bob Larson's newsletter...

Alina Jidkova seems to have adopted a new motto: "I don't lose until I beat at least one high seed." At Auckland, she topped #1 Angeles Montolio in the first round. Now, at Hobart, she tackled #2 seed Paola Suarez -- and won 1-6 6-1 6-2. This is all the more impressive when you remember that Suarez beat Mary Pierce at the Australian Open last year. Jidkova, a few years ago, was one of those highly touted Russian prospects. But she turns 25 in a few weeks, and hasn't done much lately. Her star seemed to have faded. Suddenly it's looking bright again. This should be enough to get her into the top 100.

Some more articles..

http://www.sports.ru/today/tennis/13...000015683.html

Another masterpiece from Mr. Polyakov. His knowledge is again amazing. The following pearls are just..

About Kafelnikov:

"You can imagine that the first match of 27yo sochi resident in the new year ( he lost 3:6, 4:6 to not really strong Australian Scott Draper, failing to convert any break points )."

Well, how could he know about three matches that Yevgeny has already played in Qatar this year..

or

"Kooyong Classic is being played as round-robin, not playoff"

Indeed, it is really details, that it is in fact, playoff, but with consolation rounds..

http://www.sports.ru/today/tennis/13...000015035.html

An article about tennis from non-tennis person. That excuses unimaginable number of factual errors in the article (like where he reveals that controversial comments from Davenport and Hingis abotu Mauresmo in 1999 came after both were crushed by Mauresmo ). Still, pretty amusing reading. But for Russian readers only.
