Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

Iveta is focused, concentrated and motivated and feels comfortable right now - a combination which is perfect and not the average rule in her former seasons. The singles matches showed some strategical cleverness, esthetical perfection and a good condition. Australia always has been a good place for her, so the prospects are fine. I feel very positive about the crowded czech run for the Olympics. A good time for fellow fans, and most of all a even better time for Iveta.

Every time I crawl past your door, I been wishing I was somebody else instead.

And Kanepi is most likely out of her draw.
One match at a time, still.

Keep going girl!

Iveta will play Mathilde Johansson in the first round. Well within her reach if she plays well.

She's in quite a nice part of the draw.

Benesova d. Johansson 63 26 64 - hoped it would have been a bit easier but well done. R2 vs. Peng.

Iveta beat Peng 62 64 to extend her H2H to 3-0. She played really well - so many flashy winners from both wings and good serving at important moments too.

Great match!
Was worried about defending all these points but she was hitting her forehand like a boss.

Also won 64 61 in doubles against a potentially tricky team.

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

Iveta is staying busy in Australia, right on !
Next up: Nina Bratchikova (RUS), who's for the first time in a Slam MD, but has dismantled youngsters like Karo Pliskova, Yuli Beygelzimer, and outlasted veterans like Eleni D. and Pennetta. We'll see. Best of luck, Iveta !
