I'm going to Madrid to YEC,I was wondering if any other Sveta fan will be there to cheer for her? Well if not,I'll cheer for her loudly,don't worry. ;) She and Amélie are the only reasons why I'm going.


I've not been to a pro tourney in a long time (more than 10 years :eek: ) so I was wondering if it's easy to approach the players as I'd like to have a photo taken with Sveta and talk to her.Also as I have said to another Sveta fan I'll do my best to try to give Sveta a letter for her she has written,so if anyone else wants to write her,just send me a pm,and I'll do my best. :D


I can't wait :bounce:

I have had no trouble at all approaching Ms. Kuznetsova at various
tournaments. However, it is much easier at an outdoor tournament
than an indoor tournament (at least in Los Angeles, where the
indoor tournament was at the Staples Center.) At the outdoor
tournaments, I'd just follow her to her practice court and wait
til she was done. I could never find any of the players at Staples
Center; they were either playing on the court or somewhere in the
bowels of the Staples Center.

From reading her interviews, she likes polite fans(I always said, "Please,
Ms. Kuznetsova," making sure I pronounced it correctly, or nearly correctly)
and she likes her fans to talk to her. Best of luck! I wish I could be there,
but I can't get away from work (especially to fly to the other side of the
world.)

Are you going to speak Spanish to her? I've never tried my
very-bad Spanish on her, maybe I should! Of course, that
assumes I'll get to see her in the next season!

Sure,I'll speak spanish as it's easier for me than english (not to talk about russian :tape: ) and I think she speaks and understands it very well :D

I hope you get to see her in the next season.What tournaments are you planning to go?

Yeah, I bet speaking Spanish to her is the way to go, if you
don't speak Russian. Let us know how it goes!

As for next year, currently I'm planning on going to Indian
Wells and Acura Classic, as those are local (probably I'll go to
Carson for a day or two as well, depending on the field.)

But I'm not sure what else... part of me wants to go to RG,
but I don't have time to work on my French (and it doesn't really
fit my vacation schedule); part of me wants to
go back to Eastbourne/Wimbledon, or maybe just the 2nd week
of Wimbledon, but that is so expensive (although it fits in my vacation
schedule); and part of me says I should blow off the first week of
the semester in the Fall and go to the US Open finally.

I joined this contest on TV for 2 tickets to Madrid and YEC, but some lucky Malaysian won it instead. :sad:

Have a great time for those who are coming!:wavey:

Hi there :wavey:

Yes,I had a good time even if Sveta lost the 2 matchs she played in my presence :sad: but I was cheering her like crazy in both russian/spaniash and I think she noticed it as she looked to my side a couple of times :lol: Too bad it didn't work...I could not approach her :mad: and I missed when she was signing but a very nice lady I met there (an Amélie fan) got her sign a card for me :D She told me she was very nice and sweet.

I'm afraid the photos are not very good as I was sitting very far from court,but I'll post them later,but don't expect nothing but bad photos.Next year I'll try to get my places earlier.

Thanks thanks thanks! I appreciate the report and the photos
and I'm so sorry you couldn't talk to her! I think you are right though;
she did look to your side of the court! She does that, and it's fun!

I hope you get to meet her sometime.
