Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread

Missed the match, but I am so thrilled for her

US Open 2011 was the tourney that made me a fan, and this is basically the best she's played since then. More please

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread

Such a different start of the season! I hate that I have exams and can't watch her matches, but it seems like she played very well (even Patrick345 isn't negative for once)
Hoping for a highlights reel.

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread

Moments like these are sooo sweet after a frustrating season The best part though, is that this is not surprising. This is just how Nastia should always be doing, because she's that talented

Best start of the season possible. Now let's keep it up.

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread

About time. I'm sick of her wasting her talent. Making final is a muss now. She can't lose to Lesia, can she?

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread

^ their only match was 2011 Wimbledon 64 76 to Nastia.
Anyone who is losing to Pavs on grass should be toast on HC but who knows.


So impressed with her serving so far. Lost serve 6 times in 7 sets. Thats pretty cool stat alone by her last year standard. Makes it even greater that when she won her 4th game in the set she hold serve every time after that. (only exception was against Petra, but there had 4-0 lead.)

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread

Can't see her losing at all in the next match unless she gets injured. She should win her SF match without any trouble.

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread

Pavs won 4-6 6-1 6-2.

First set was a mess. No conviction, bad footwork and horrible shot selection. She played much better in the last two sets and kept her cool when Tsurenko started swinging freely at the end. I'm still a bit worried about her toss though. And her footwork still needs work. She takes so much backhands in half-volley without being in the position to do so.
I love the way she is really caring about her matches now

And in a premier final! What a start of the year. She has nothing to lose against Rena.

Well, I never expected her to develop a perfect ball toss and brilliant footwork in the space of a month, so this is fine by me. But I'm sure she'll keep working on it.

the graphic showed ther rally hitpoints, and she was basically glued to the baseline, and Tsurenko had pretty nice depth on her groundstrokes, imo that was her biggest problem in 1st set. Vertical movement adjustements is for pussies.

The serve was worse than in previous rounds. Also she tried to serve on Tsurenko's FH, but with that way she had less free point from serving to the T on deuce court.


She is in Hobart MD, playing Barty in 1st round. Dunno if it would be better just withdraw now.

Re: Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova Cheering Thread

Great start of the year for Pavs! She's in her first final since Washington last summer. Also hope for a competitive final-- she's 0-3 against Serena. They've played on hardcourt only once--at the 2011 USO QF, which Pavs lost 57 16. Let's see what she does here.
