Re: Olga Govortsova Thread

Olga and Mandy won their R2 doubles match in Wimbledon, 5 and 5 over Iveta and Barbora.
What a pretty team they must be.

Re: Olga Govortsova Thread

She qualified in New Haven, beating her doubles partner Dushevina 75 in the third. Then Dushevina got the LL spot and they had to play again. Olga won the first round against Dushevina 62 in the third. Lol.

Some twitter updates:

Re: Olga Govortsova Thread

I've been thinking about becoming a fan of Govortsova. What kind of game does she have? I've noticed her constantly around the 80-100 mark in the rankings..Does she have the game to improve and be at least a solid top 50 or 40 player? I like her look, are there any interviews with her?

She's definitely very watchable. She's been as high as 35 but hasn't sustained it. I think she definitely has the game to improve and be at least a solid top 50 or 40 player.

I've found it hard to tell with her how far she will go. She has some game, she hits quite big from both sides and serves reasonably big as well. Not overwhelmingly powerful but a bigger hitter than average for sure. She moves okay, as you would expect from her shape. She seems to make too many errors at the moment to rise further. Silly errors. I think she definitely has potential but I'm not sure she's quite able to figure it out, although recent signs are that she is improving. Maybe she needs to take her fitness and intensity to the next level like Azarenka, Kerber and Wozniacki did. Or maybe she needs to take her serve to the next level and make it a serious weapon. She has no wta titles, 3 times she's been runner up in wta events, she has a few itf titles, and probably her best result in singles so far was 2010 Ponte Vedra final, she beat Dominika in the semis and lost to Wozniacki in the final. She has quite a lot of doubles titles, 8, she's a good doubles player it seems.

Here are some videos that might help you assess her game.







She's very active on twitter too, you might want to have a look, you can tell some things about her personality from her twitter I think. https://twitter.com/OGovortsova

Here are some more twitter updates from today:

Re: Olga Govortsova Thread

I have seen a few matches from Govortsova in the past. Most noticeably the Kremlin Cup semis against Kleybanova and the not so hot final against Schiavone. (Would that not be her greatest result yet? Finals of a Premier?) And I saw the final against Wozniacki in Ponte Vedra. I tend to like nice respectful players. She seems a little annoyed in that interview, no? Anyways, I will still watch a little bit more from her. I would think her forum could use a few more fans.

You are right, Kremlin cup 09 final would be her greatest result so far, that slipped my mind. That was the only interview I could find of her, I think she isn't always in that kind of mood. I enjoy following her twitter, it's very active. Almost as active as the super active twitter of Sofia Arvidsson, whom I also enjoy following.

Re: Olga Govortsova Thread

I watched parts of that match and I think it was one of the better matches I saw that day.

And she also looked great... I have to say that a lot of these girls look a lot better in person

Re: Olga Govortsova Thread

Olga wins again, 26 62 75 over Konta. Quite a fight. Now a match with either Venus or Kerber awaits.

She's out of doubles though.

Re: Olga Govortsova Thread

Olga lost the first set 6-1 against Kerber. Looks like it's probably too much for her at the moment unless something changes dramatically, Kerber is very tough and Olga is not feeling well, she called the doctor on and they checked her blood pressure, temperature etc.
