Re: When in Rome...

The top half has Amelie Serena Nadia Jelena.
Sveta has a good draw.
She's coming off a very tough week in Berlin. Almost a great week.

Re: When in Rome...

Jolly good show, Sveta making the final in Berlin. And good that she finally beat Justine, that should give her confidence. Pity that Ana was a bridge too far. Hopefully Sveta can get some rest over the next couple of days - chances are she won't have to play her first match in Rome till Wednesday. And we're all hoping, aren't we, that this week she'll go one better, and capture the Rome title. That would be oh so good. Could be playing Ana Ivanovic again in the quarters...

Re: When in Rome...

Sveta is supposed to be in Rome tomorrow for media day. She's scheduled in between Mauresmo and Jankovic.
At 12.00 there will be Serena Williams, 12:30 Amelie Mauresmo, 13.00 Svetlana Kuznetsova and last at 13.30 Jelena Jankovic...
Then she should get some sleep, rest up. She got 300 points in Berlin, and now trails the #2 by 500 points.
A big week here will have her right there, and Sharapova has a lot to defend the rest of the year.
After RG, Sveta doesn't have nearly as much to defend.

Re: When in Rome...

To see her on the 2 would just be a great feeling! But I think she really has good chances. She's so constant in this year

Re: When in Rome...

Sveta is in great form now. She just beat Nadia and Justine on red clay.
I think she'll be a force this week.

Re: When in Rome...

I guess Sveta is still tired after her exertions last week in Berlin, so no wonder Mara thought she had a chance of victory. I'm glad Sveta pulled it off in straight sets. I hope she's managed to rest a bit since Sunday.

Would be good if she does get to no. 2 soon - then she can start aiming at no. 1!!! Lots of points to defend at Roland Garros but then not so many after that as last year she lost QF Eastbourne and 3rd round Wimbledon (and then didn't compete for five weeks), so who knows....

Re: When in Rome...

If Sveta holds her current and stays healthy, she'll make a run for #1.
