This is a tough spot to start the year. Sveta was in Austria, now Spain. Then Hong Kong.
She has to be ready when she gets to Sydney.

Sveta will be the #2 seed in Sydney after Amelie, but the draw will still be loaded with good players.

Jan 4th, 2007, 03:37 PM
Good :D I hope we get to see a final between seeds 1 & 2 ;) :bounce:

Sveta pulled out of Hong Kong, so she might not be in Sydney -

Kuznetsova pulls out of Hong Kong exhibition with bronchitis

HONG KONG (AP) -Russia's Svetlana Kuznetsova pulled out of the Champions Challenge on Saturday because of bronchitis.

It wasn't immediately clear if the illness would prevent her from playing in the Australian Open, which starts Jan. 15.

Kuznetsova, the 2004 U.S. Open winner, appeared fatigued during the tournament and struggled with her movement.

She lost in three sets to Switzerland's Patty Schnyder in the first round on Wednesday, but beat China's Zheng Jie in straight sets Friday in the losers' playoff semifinal.

Kuznetsova was scheduled to face China's Yan Zi in the final on Saturday and play in the doubles final.

She has a bye, but I hope she skips Sydney -

Dementieva vs. Q
Schiavone vs. Li
Srebotnik vs. Bovina
Kuznetsova vs. Bye

Jan 6th, 2007, 07:44 PM
That's an interesting section of the draw, with Bovina and Dementieva.
If Sveta is out, I wonder if they put a LL in.

Jan 7th, 2007, 01:39 PM
I still don't know if Sveta is playing or not.

Jan 7th, 2007, 04:31 PM
It looks like Sveta will play Tuesday. She has a good section of the draw.

Jan 7th, 2007, 06:01 PM
Hope Sveta's feeling better :)

Jan 8th, 2007, 02:30 AM
Sveta plays Srebotnik in round 2.

Jan 8th, 2007, 08:07 PM
So she is playing? :D Davai Sveta!!!

Sveta withdrew after losing the first set 2-6. She still has a respiratory virus, and who knows if she'll be ready for the AO.

"This really disappoints me a lot," she said. "But I just need to stop in the middle of the rally to breathe, and my nose is closed and I hear everything ringing in my ears.

"The blood is going up and I can't really focus with everything else."

"I definitely will play the Australian Open but if I feel a bit like this I will push myself and maybe I will have to retire again," she added.

"I am really motivated to play. But if I am the same way as I am today, I won't. But if I get better, I think I should.

"It's impossible I stay like this one more week. It's not that serious for me."
