Re: Natalia Vikhlyantseva cheering thread!

Definitely a lot of raw talent

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

I dont really watch junior matches too often. But I knew Bellis had beaten Cibulkova, so I was glad to see Natalia show her what a big serve looks like

An article about yesterday's match:

Top seed Bellis crashes out of the US Open


MATCH REPORT


If ever there was a day to show that reputations count for little in juniors, then that was Tuesday at the US Open as the top two seeds in the girls’ event were sent packing in the second round by two relatively unheralded players.

Top seed CiCi Bellis was taken out 76 26 61 by Natalia Vikhlyantseva of Russia in a stunning match while second seed and Wimbledon champion Jelena Ostapenko was dumped out 63 61 by Marie Bouzkova of the Czech Republic.

The 15-year-old Bellis was the talk of the town last week when she beat Australian runner-up Dominika Cibulkova in the first round of the women’s event.

But Vikhlyantseva, who averaged well over 100 miles per hour on her first serve and topped out at 114, never let her settle and as the intense heat kicked into both girls, held on to win in just over two hours.

The first set was an epic, with Bellis saving five set points before finally losing it 11-9. The American hit back well to take the second but in the decider, the Russian went for broke and it worked.

“In the third set, I just hit (out) on every point because I couldn’t walk,” she said. “Sometimes it’s great when you receive serve just to go for it.”

The majority of the packed crowd in Grandstand Court were pulling for Bellis but Vikhlyantseva said she had enjoyed the atmosphere.

“I liked it,” she said. “When I arrived to the court it was unbelievable, there were so many people. Of course they applauded more when Bellis came, but still, I don’t think it was all because she was playing.”



Well done, Natalia

And we'll never be royals (royals). It don't run in our blood, That kind of luxe just ain't for us. We crave a different kind of buzz.
