Sveta comes off a disappointing week in Dubai. She lost 12 of the last 14 games to Mirza, then lost her first 2005 doubles match with Alicia.
Last year at IW, Sveta lost to Justine in the quarters, and made the doubles final with Lena L.

sveta has a pretty easy draw, probably the easiest out of the contenders, if she doesnt do well with this draw then things arent going right.

Sveta was down 1-3, but came back to win 6-3, 6-2.

Gowza
Mar 11th, 2005, 09:39 PM
nice work sveta, i think it was good for her to be down in such an early round of the tournament, now she will be more focused and less likely to get into a sticky situation against a better player.

Gowza
Mar 11th, 2005, 09:48 PM
plays vento-kabchi next, a player that can sometimes trouble to top players but sveta has a much better game, round after that its either schiavone or benesova, benesova just won her match 0 and 2 so sveta needs to be ready for either player. vento-kabchi first tho, good luck sveta!

Gowza
Mar 11th, 2005, 10:00 PM
correction on that, the vento-kabchi/talaja match is still ini progress. talaja won the first set but vento-kabchi is up 5-1 in the 2nd.

Gowza
Mar 11th, 2005, 10:03 PM
correction there, vento-kabchi/talaja match hasnt finished yet. talaja won the first set, vento-kabchi is up 5-2 in the 2nd so sveta's opponent isnt yet decided.

Gowza
Mar 11th, 2005, 10:29 PM
vento-kabchi is up 2-0 in the 3rd, looks like it might be her but its quite a tight match. i think talaja would probably be an easier opponent for sveta.

Gowza
Mar 11th, 2005, 10:52 PM
sveta's next opponent will indeed be vento-kabchi. good luck sveta!

Gowza
Mar 14th, 2005, 01:12 AM
sveta with an easy hold, up 4-1. serving better this set than the first set.

Gowza
Mar 14th, 2005, 01:18 AM
it's been awhile since an update so there must be either a bathroom break or an injury break.

Gowza
Mar 14th, 2005, 01:36 AM
sveta wins it 6-2 6-1, good strong performance sveta!

Gowza
Mar 14th, 2005, 04:36 AM
having already been knocked out of the doubles sveta has a day off tomorrow, should be able to have a serious run at this title!

Gowza

sveta plays fujiwara next round, a qualifier. should get an easy match but dont underestimate her, she has got some good wins and has played more matches so she'll be ready for sveta. good luck!

I've never heard about Fujiwara before the tournament :confused:
Two convincing wins in previous rounds show that Sveta did wake up :D
no upset expected in this match i believe :)

Gowza
Mar 15th, 2005, 07:51 AM
i think ive seen the name around but i have no clue what type of player fujiwara is or her results or even her ranking. sveta should have no problem this match, dementieva has a tough opponent in golovin and i believe sveta is to play the winner of the dementieva/golovin match, sveta's draw gives her the chance to conserve some energy for the bigger matches.

Gowza
Mar 15th, 2005, 08:59 PM

Sveta needs to be mentaly stronger as she was when she won the USO. She is one of the bestr players in the world but needs to build up more confidence and that killer instint.

I think so too Daniel. She's almost a perfect a tennis player but she does need to incraese her confidence. Anyway having say that she is still young and a long way to go.
