Could Vika possibly get a WC into wimbledon considering she was the number 1 junior the previous year?

Sharapova's_Boy
May 1st, 2006, 05:40 AM
I doubt that would happen. ;)

But a junior Grand Slam winner automatically receives a WC into the Pro Qualifying event the following year, although Vika doesn't need help getting into qualies - and she didn't win Wimbledon. :p

Vika just lost 0-6, 6-1, 2-6 !! Argh!! what's wrong with her, she's clearly capable of winning this match, she needs to get stronger ! She has so much talent, I dont understand hwo she could be beaten 0-6 in the first & lose a third set 2-6 after winning the second 6-1. Come on Vika!

I saw the last 3 games of the match, I'll post what I saw here whenever I'm done with other stuff.

Ravsieg
May 1st, 2006, 09:11 PM
OK.

It was very weird, Vika was showing good movement and good power, but out of nowhere seemingly normal strikes went meters out. The most clamorous of those led to an exclamation from her, it was on English but with a very heavy accent, "What the fuck was that?".
Those 3 or 4 DFs on two serve games didn't help either.

I didn't take the best of examples, but it was sure enough to notice she can dominate from the baseline against most players.

waratahsrock
May 1st, 2006, 09:25 PM
thanks for the report mate :yeah: .. Was she coming forward to the net at all? would you put it down just to a pure loss of concentration at the end of the third set?

WOHH HOO!! Good luck Vika! Jie is beatable! anyway does Vika get any qulifying pts since she made it as a LL, or does she only get the first 3 rnd qualifying pts? Anyway, its really funny that Vika would hurl vulgarities in the middle of a match, I like my girl with attitude! GO VIKA!

You're welcome ;)

I don't know, when I arrived (a problem with the car delayed me and my father) it was 4-1 against her on the third. Sorry. :sad:

As for attacking the net... on those 3 games she did it once, if ever. She stuck to the baseline.

Dan23
May 2nd, 2006, 01:05 PM
gee sorry about the car mate...I can imagine that'd be annoying on your way to the tennis.

Derek.
May 2nd, 2006, 11:30 PM
When she played the juniors, she dominated, so you never could really tell how inconsistant she is. But now that she is being matched, you can see that she is inconsistant. She's going to need to learn to control her game, or else she won't keep progressing as fast as she would like up the rankings.

Gotta work on her clay game too. :o

If it was on hardcourts or grass than it would be a great draw. But considering how much "different" (:o) Vika plays on clay, and that Anabel has more experience, I think Vika is in for a big battle if she wants to win.

Very, very disappointing. Vika had more than enough chances to win this game, after being up a set and a break it looked as though she was in control. It really is a shattering result. In reality she blew it, that was her match and she should have never have lost it. She was two points away from the match at one stage, but obviously failed to close it out. Yet another wasted opportunity, and I know she’s still extremely young but unfortunately it’s becoming a worrying trend now.

After watching the video, I really have NO DOUBT about Vika's talent. She really has the talent & plays like a top player when she is on.

I don't like Vika's game at all, but she can do really well if she works on her consistency (big problem) and mentality (bigger problem).

She's inconsistant on clay because she likes short points so she tends to rush more on clay because more balls come back. When she's inconsistant it hurts her mentality and she can lose her concentration. On grass or hardcourts she is a different player. :p

Let compare games. Vika is more of a power game while Aga is more smart game. If Vika keeps her cool & consistency, she has the ability to over-power Aga & the grass courts would help her. So hopes looks good for Vika, just has to keep her cool & consistency & not allow Aga to out-smart her.
