Vera played really well, but in the end it was experience that won out. Jenn played well when she need to. I think that if Vera had won the second set when she served for it at 5-3, we may have had a different outcome.

Vera shows signs of improvement everytime I see her, she was very good today, but as shap_half said, Jennifer's experience was the key in the end. I already liked Vera's game, but now I am a bigger fan of her. I like her attitude and imo I think she can be one of the best russians as she's one of the few who seems to use her brains. ;)

Vera's always used her brains ;) she's not one not to try diff things in matches :)
glad she it together after 1st set.
thats the way she always plays :), stands in an returns
returns are her strong pt and always have been. she has improved her 1st serve though :)

still needs alot of work on 2nd serve :(

Vera did well to win a set vs. Jenny. Yes in the final set Jenny's experience was the key in the end. Was Vera in the Myskina draw she'd be think the fav. to reach the QF's.

The biggest surprise I saw with Vera today was how much in shape she was. She was a little pudgy when I remember last seeing her a few years back. I definitely see her passing by probably Maria Kirilenko, but not sure if she is ready to challenge the bigger Russian stars.

ANd what a sweet girl she is. Loved her exchange with Cappy at the end.

Very nice match! :hearts:
Vera improved a lot since AO when I first saw her! :)

Well done to both girls!

I guess you can see it in the end, that Jenny knew she's Vera idol! :D

That's too bad, having Jen as her idol.........since I'm not fond of some of her actions....
But still, taking a set from an idol is meaningful enough for Vera:).

She's such a cutty pie. I really like her game. it's different from the Bang-Bang of most of the other russians girls, but don't get me wrong, she can hit a mean ball, particularly her forehand down the line (reminds me of Lina K's one) it's just that she picks her spots. Agre with Eggy, she has to improve her 2nd serve

Both played pretty well.....

Pretty impressed with Vera's performance in the 2nd & 3rd sets.... the 1st set was mainly due to nerves.... glad to see she regrouped to have a new start for the next 2 sets... and what a moment to play against your idol..... ;)

Keep it going, Vera!!! :)

And for Jenny... keep on going too!!! :)

She's improved so much from the AO 2004. I liked her then, and
I'm still picking her to go far in the WTA. She's not hitting
as hard, and point constructions were really good. :)
