Thanks for the video, PerfectForm! Walk softly, but carry a big stick. In this case, we're talking about tiny girls with big backswings. You just gotta love it!

Nadiya could have won her first round in qualies too, losing by a break in each sets

Nadiya wins first round qualies in 100k Bucharest, but lyuda lost to the top seed. Good draw for nadiya though, hope she can upset the number four seed next!

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

It seem thats the Kichenok twins can never seem to do well together. When Lyuda plays really well, Nadiya will suck. When Nadiya starts doing better, Lyuda will suck. The 2 exceptions have been the 10K (Nadiya made finals) & 25K (Nadiya made either qtrs or sfs) where Lyuda won.

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

Nadiya lost to Juricova 6-4, 6-0 @Bucharest. I see that Lyuda lost in the finals of qualies@Olomouc 50K and the in the 2nd rd main draw @Trnava 50K also teaming up with Krunic in doubles, lost in the semis. got through Qualies @Prague 25K but then lost in the 1st round of the main draw. Nadiya lost in the 2nd round of qualies to Iveta Gerlova, way below her rank. Nadiya #412 and #203 in doubles. Lyuda is #347 and #192 in doubles. What's impressive is that together they are ranked #70 in the doubles race. I watched the videos when they were Jrs. With alot of promise vs the more recent vids and they have lost that explosive 1st step or two. This research all started because I saw these girls listed as playing in the rnd of 16, and in the qrts in doubles of the WTA Taskent going on right now. How can you play qtrs when you havn't won your previous round? This was on Tennis.com @Taskent; Nadiya lost to Mervana Jugic-Salkic 4-6, 7-5, 4-6 in 1st r qualies and Lyuda won 6-0, 6-1 over Madina Hatamova, but she lost her next match to Marta Sirotkina 7-5, 7-5. Today they play Krunic/Rybarikova in the r16 main draw, and Eva Bimerova/Vesna Dolonts in the qrts. Having won yesterday against Olga Govortsova/Alla Kudryavtseva. I'm sure only the first match is the real deal.

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

She lost to 5th seed Sirotkina Nadiya has been stuck in the same position for about 2 years now and Lyuda has taken huge steps backwards. Wonder what's up with their singles as their doubles game is improving.

Babos. Svitolina. Gavrilova. Putintseva. Azarenka. Safarova. Dementieva. Pivovarova. Cirstea. Olaru. Dinu

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

I've been wondering if maybe they might have been struggling with their fitness a little bit, but that is just a guess on my part.

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

From what I saw of Lyuda this season, it's her brainless hitting that is causing her problems

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

I think they have more potential than they are showing this year. Hopefully they will do better next year in singles.

Re: The Kichenok Sisters Cheering thread!

Both sisters have won their first round quali matches in 25k Bratislava. Nadya got very lucky break and will face an unranked 15 year old WC when the top seed in qualis withdrew. Lyudmila plays the qualifying 3rd seed Tinjic next. Nice chance to get to MD for both, but Nadya really better make it especially!!!!
