PYW Cincinatti | Final Qualifying Round | Please vote!

PYW Cincinatti



The United States welcomes it's first summer hardcourt event of the year and Cincinatti has the honour to kick off. We have reached the final qualifying round. The ones that win now are assured from a main draw spot.

Let's have a look at those 4 decisive matches:

vs
[1] Severine Beltrame FRA vs Daniela Kix AUT
First seed Severine Beltrame is back with avengance. The current number 107 in the world made a decent run at both Roland Garros and Wimbledon, but then completely fell apart. In the first round of a Challenger (!), she got beaten by British sensation Jane O'Donoghue, a player well ranked below her. Beltrame let this misfit not get to her and travelled to Cincinatti. After yet another very difficult match for her, she finally found her form against wildcard Stevenson in the previous round. If her form maintains, Daniela Kix won't be much of a trouble, given the fact that she was the last to finish her match earlier.

vs
[2] Angela Haynes USA vs [7] Ma. Emilia Salerni ARG
A title winner against a relatively nobody when it comes to the world of PYW and still... Angela Haynes is considered as the clear favourite for this match. The American recorded the 11th double bagel in PYW history in the first qualifying round and it looks like only one of the greats could stop her on the way to main draw. Fortunately for her, opponent Maria Emilia Salerni isn't one of those greats. Although she has a PYW title under her belt, she hasn't done anything of significance after that. One of the reasons why we can label Salerni's Quebec victory as one of the greatest flukes in history. Or will she turn it around this time?

vs
Melanie Gloria CAN vs [5] Shikha Uberoi IND
One sometimes wonders how the Williams sisters might feel when they have to play eachother. Are they mad? Resentfull? Emotional? I doubt they'll ever tell, but people often forget that the Williamses aren't the only sisters who play tennis. You have the Serra Zannetis, the Klemenschitses and you have Shikha and Neha Uberoi. Both born as an American, but now American and Indian, with Shikha being the latter. And the most succesfull, hence her 5th seed ánd her victory on Neha in the second round, wich included a bagel. Now she faces a player along the likes of Neha: Melanie Gloria. The Canadian is playing her first tournament ever and has already two wins behind the teeth. She outlasted Sybille Bammer in round 2 and is looking for the scalp of another seed. I wonder if a 5th seed would bring her satisfaction...

vs
[4] Varvara Lepchenko UZB
vs [8] Ashley Harkleroad USA
Last match features 2 seeds, 2 players who have enjoyed a small amount of succes already. Ashley Harkleroad is one of those 16 players who knows how it feels like to qualify for a Grand Slam event. The American is playing in her 3rd PYW tournament and has never lost in the early stages, wich means that she isn't planning to do it now. But so isn't Varvara Lepchenko. Her tournament record is even more impressive than Ashleys: in her last three tournaments she has reached the semi final on every occasion. To make a long story short: it's a match that's going to make a lot of people sad, but the same amount of people happy.

You think some of these people deserve holding the Cincinatti trophy in a couple of days? Vote then, so it might actually happen.

I know I've been a liar
And I know I've been a fool
I hope we didn't break it
But I'm glad we broke the rules
My cave is deep now
Yet your light is shining through
I cover my eyes
Still all I see is you

This can't last. This misery can't last. I must remember that and try to control myself. Nothing lasts really. Neither happiness nor despair. Not even life lasts very long. There'll come a time in the future when I shan't mind about this anymore, when I can look back and say quite peacefully and cheerfully how silly I was. No, no, I don't want that time to come ever. I want to remember every minute, always, always to the end of my days.
