Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

Ivetka is looking in fine shape right now... Marching into the 4th round. Everything looked good today, albeit against a lesser opponent. The drop shots were particularly impressive. Keep going!!

great 2012 AO Start. R4 vs Azarenko. Tough match but Azarenko has always had a let down somewhere, lets hope that Iveta catches her on a bad day. Go Iveta!

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

Scoreboard was fairly lopsided... but she played really well through the entire tournament. A good head of steam to start off the season. Well done and good luck in the mixed doubles!

Benesova/Melzer d. Llaogstera Vives/Marach 61 76

Congrats.

I thought Iveta played well against Azarenka. She was hitting her groundstrokes with superb timing, especially at the end of the second set and was hitting some really flashy winners. Just a shame she made quite a few silly UEs when she had Azarenka on the back-foot and ready to be put away which probably cost her a few games.

That's her main problem. If she only finish 25% more rallies, she would be a lock in the top 30.

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

The Open is over, over for a while.

Mirza/Bhupathi def. Melzer/Benesova 3:6, 6:4, 12:10

Iveta and Jürgen had one matchpoint, but that's the way it goes. Nevertheless the Slam was very joyful in terms of prize-money and points ... there was the chance to achieve even more. It's also a mental thing as we all know she needs to step out of the shade and change some things in order to reach the top 30, but there is a choice.

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

Re: Iveta Benesova cheering thread! vol2

What happened in mixed doubles? Apparently Iveta didn't shake the umpire's hand.

And not wanting to sound too much like Goldenlox but does Iveta surpass three-million in prize money now?

*: Most likely there was a controversial call on a non hawk-eye court (this is only my guess).
**: No, up to my research it is 2,984846 millions in US-$ (containing 128,419 $ revenues from AO).

Fed Cup next.

Iveta tweeted she won't be playing at the Paris Indoors this year so her next WTA tournaments will be Doha and Dubai.
