Oh dear...i thought nastya was getting better. Looked good at Eastbourne and Wimbly, then a bad loss to Zheng and two early losses since.

Nastya...look...take one month rest,take your BF (if you dont have you can always count on me) on a desert island,then 2 weeks wild,wild sex,then 2 weeks train hard and go back on the tour coz your performance is ridiculous in the last few months

so nastya has her special way of success:

beeing about no. 12 for more than a year by playing like no. 30

that's not that bad ... ;)

She was never in good form this year aside from Eastbourne.
Mara can play very well too so this isn't surprising at all. Unfortunately, I expect an early Us Open exit for Nastya as well.

Myskina, if you really wanted to be top 10 again, you would work and fight and WIN matches.

damn. wanted to see her live.

nastya is still crap. her slump never truly ended, despite her amazing run at wimbledon 2005. the remainder of 2005 amd the first half of 2006 she played like a player ranked 8-10, which she was. she hit some nice form on grass and it looked like she was ready to come back, but now she's back to slumping nastya.

i give credit to mara, though. she's solid.

You are absolutely right about this. When she was close to making top 10 again I couldn't believe it because she wasn't playing like a top 10 or top 15 player.

I guess the chemicals are leaking into her brain... she hasnt done anything special all year... Yes, she reached three finals (0-3) in Istanbul, Stockholm (bad losses as top seed) and Eastbourne (losing to JHH in a good match) but outside her 6-4 2-6 6-4 win over Kuznetsova in the Eastbourne semis and the good match against Justine she hasnt beaten a quality player all year. She reached the Wimbledon QF once again losing to Mauresmo but she only needed to beat Black, Muller, Medina G. (clau court player) and a then still erratic Jankovic so that one isn't that special either for a nearly top 10 player. I'm still waiting for a quality win soooooo :kiss: :help:

:sad: :confused: :sad: Nastya

Let's try to be positive. Now she can arrive early in New York so has more time to get used to the surroundings and she can play with less pressure. If she survives the early rounds some of the necessary self-confidence may return and we know she has the talent. Who knows she's able to surprise us, she's done it before.

nonsense, i hope she doesn't retire, that's crazy. it's a loss, she's really had a much better year than last year. hopefully this loss doesn't affect her heart and mind at The US Open.

Myskina is suffering from elbow and foot injuries at the moment, which explains her lack of form. I said this in another post, but as much as i dont want her to, i think she should withdraw from the Open and take a time out!
