Sveta's 2009 calendar

Hi. I've never really been on this section as I'm usually on General Messages and media so this time I will notify you of her calendar here as well as General messages. I confirmed the calendar with her agent Lawrence today.

As you can see it's a very busy schedule once again and now not too many minor tournaments in there at all.

Cheers

So any of her fans out there have a look and see what you make of the new schedule under the 2009 Road Map

Re: Svetlana Kuznetsova's 2009 calendar

17 tournaments.
She didn't include the YEC. Modesty or she doesn't think she can make it?

Is she 100% sure she will be amoong the top tenners playing in her scheduled tournaments? If so, all top ten players are aleardy scheduled? No late entry available then?

Re: Svetlana Kuznetsova's 2009 calendar

thanks for this

17 events not many by kuznetsova's standards. Im sure she will play moscow.
I really don't know what 2009 has in store for her. I expected so much from her, after a strong first few months of the season then henin retiring, i thought she would make a push towards #1 but she didn't play well consistantly for the rest if the year. Hopefully 2009 will be better. Come on Kuzzy

Kuznetsova

... for some reason.

Re: Svetlana Kuznetsova's 2009 calendar

Year one of the roadmap. We'll see how it goes.
Sveta is a USO champion who did not win a tournament last year.
I want to see if Olga can reverse things and help her to start winning titles again.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Svetlana Kuznetsova's 2009 calendar

pretty good schedule IMO
she respected the surface seasons and doesn't have to travel through continents too much

She didn't include any international events

Anastasia Myskina


Radwanska - S. Williams - V. Williams - Kerber

I think she and Morozova are really trying to force her to focus on the big events more. She began doing that a little this year, but not properly. I really do think she has a few surprises for us. Her commitment to moving forward more is heartening; late 2004 was so great to see because she was willing to step in aggressively and didn't care if she sometimes made mistakes.

While it's certainly not an excuse, I really wonder if she was shell-shocked by Henin's retirement. I think the two were fairly close, in terms of a friendly rivalry, and they both had enormous respect for each other. It must have been hard to be (theoretically) the player most likely to inherit the mantle (being ranked #2 the season before) but still have so much trouble winning titles.

And I agree, GO KUZZY!

Very smart schedule, I hope Sveta finds her game and win a title in 2009!

Re: Svetlana Kuznetsova's 2009 calendar

I rather like the schedule plan

It's a very different hard-court build-up than usual in the summer, I'm THRILLED she's playing Eastbourne, and I think the 3 clay tournaments building towards the French is good plan, although 3 straight weeks on clay is a rough go. But, she's the most durable player at the top. When was the last time she was injured? US Open Series '05? Knock on wood!

Re: Svetlana Kuznetsova's 2009 calendar

thanks for posting this laurie

I'm so glad Sveta isn't playing in indoor tournaments next year

and as to the idea that she was shell shocked by Justine's retirement I think that's true,and I think she did put a lot of pressure on herself to do well especially during the clay season. She said she was incredibly dissapointed to lose in the FO semi to Dinara -anyways hopefully she'll get herself together for next year and do well
good Luck Sveta!

Re: Sveta's 2009 calendar

Thanks Laurie!
I was hoping she would play the Family Circle Cup in Charleston - I knew I would be able to get time off then. Oh well, maybe I'll wait and go to Rogers, which will be in Toronto this year (not Montreal, according to their web site). Or, maybe I can make a trip to Europe... hmmmm.

Good luck in 2009, Sveta!

Re: Sveta's 2009 calendar

Well, Cincinnati might be doable .

I'm surprised no Kremlin Cup-but that's much later in the season, and I guess could be added. And, of course, hopefully the YEC again. I wonder if she'll play Fed Cup again, but that isn't determined until later, also.

Thanks, Laurie! We've been waiting for this .
