All three CZE girls, Bara, Klara & Ivet failed in Dallas to reach R2: Iveta went down to Alize in 3

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

I'm sure that's done wonders for her confidence. Please get a few wins in doubles!

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

Just lost 7-5 7-6(5) to Halep.

Saved a total of 5 match points before losing so she's fighting.
Pity about the 5-3 lead in the first set. Also lead 4*-1.

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

nice fight Iveta
sad that she could not convert her SP at 5:3* in the 1st set but it's really good to see her fighting so hard

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

Comfortable R1 doubles win.

Edit: They have a fair chance of reaching the QFs again despite not being in great form as Zheng/Srebotnik went out today.

R2 vs. Kerber/Paszek and R3 vs. Chuang/Zhang or Birnerova/Oprandi.

Hlavackova, Strycova, Venus, Serena, Schiavone, Hradecka, Safarova, Cetkovska, Pliskova, Kasatkina, Putintseva, Ostapenko, Gasparyan

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

They lost 6-2 6-3. Another bad loss in a Slam.

They should really, really consider a split if they take Doubles seriously.
They've been a pair for years now and only reached one Slam QF and appear to have regressed as a team.

Best of luck in Mixed Doubles.

She's retiring on February 1st?

I feel like an ass. She just announced on Twitter that she'll end her season due to her shouder
Vesnina pretty much said she's getting married in two weeks.

Early in the year at her b'day/Fed Cup celebration, she said she "does't see herself chasing on tennis courts the world over, and a year from now she wants new direction in life: family and such". At least that's what my silicon friend makes out of this:
