Aussie Summer 2017!

Sveta starts her year in Brisbane:

Kuznetsova (5)
vs Chirico
Qualifier vs Qualifier
Begu vs Kasatkina
Stosur vs Muguruza (4)

Sveta had her best year on tour in seven years in 2016, finishing in the Top 10 for the first time since 2009. Can she hang onto in in 2017?

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

She surely should be able to win her first two matches at least, Qualifiers in 2nd round would be young Aiava or Mattek-Sands!
Good luck!

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

good start!
next for Sveta is young Aussie Aiava, don´t know much about her but she has an impressive run here...Sveta should still be able to win it obviously!

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

Sveta stops Destanee's dream run, 4 & 3.

Next up, Garbine.

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

well done!
I watched the short highlights only, the young Aussie seems to be good, had some nice shots, important for Sveta to stay aggressive herself!

Interesting match now against Muguruza, that dead rubber at the YEC in October was awful, this one will be much better...hopefully

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

Kuzzie fell to Garbine, 57 46. I thought she'd win this one, but her first serve % was atrocious in that first set, at 30%.

Now 1-4 h2h against Garb, 0-2 on hardcourt.

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

pretty bad level from what I saw unfortunately, also choking a 4-1 lead in 1st set, typical Sveta, she needs to avoid that choking against the top players obviously and as you said, her 1st serve percentage was just awful in 1st set also.
Better start than last year at least but now she has to defend the title in Sydney, so hopefully she will be able to win as many matches as possible as afterwards she won´t have many pts to defend anymore until Miami.

She will stay on 9 now in the rankings but got obviously lucky as Keys won´t play in Melbourne, so she will be 8th seeded, good for her!!

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

SYDNEY

Kuznetsova (5) vs. Begu

2nd round: Stosur/Pavlyuchenkova
QF: Cibulkova/Bouchard/Zhang/Siegemund


Good first round, she definitely should be able to beat Begu and then it gets more tricky, good luck!!

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

beat Begu easily and then lost to Pavlyuchenkova 57 36, of course after serving for the set at *54...1st serve stats are really bad again, I couldn´t watch it but she really has to work on that serve, the usual problem, quite disappointing although Pavly surely was not an easy opponent, hope she can do better in Melbourne!

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

AO draw:

(26)Laura Siegemund v Jelena Jankovic
Katerina Siniakova v Julia Goerges
Anna Tatishvili v (wc)Jaimee Fourlis
Mariana Duque-Mariño v (8)Svetlana Kuznetsova

GL to Sveta! Second round points to defend; she should do better.

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

First two rounds couldn´t be much easier tbh, Duque-Marino has not played since September, Tatishvili hasn´t played since Wimbledon and the Aussie WC is not even Top 400....

3rd round will be much tougher then, Shenzhen Champ Siniakova or JJ or Görges, so all not too easy, Svitolina/Pavlyuchenkova in 4th round then...we´ll see, 3rd round is a must obviously but hope she can go further.

Re: Winter 2017 (Australian Summer)

Highlights looked good but Duque-Marino was obviously far from 100%, especially her serve was awful and it really was not a real test for Sveta!
Fourlis next, anything but a two sets win would be shocking, really good draw...but also dangerous as she will have a big test in 3rd round coming up with either JJ or Görges!
Jankovic surely would be the tougher one but then again she really looks far from her best and should be beatable, Julia is in much better shape but Sveta´s H2H against her is much better, so looks good for her., we´ll see!!
