This was a match that could easily have been won by Catalina. She had 3 points to go up 5-3 in the final set (not back to back) but still couldn't manage it. It's a heartbreaking loss.

:( :(

Match went for 2 hours and 37 minutes.

Unlucky Catalina.

A big week for Bardina


Question for Goldenlox. Is a player like Bardina well known in russia or just by big tennis fans.

With Maria, Nadia Elena Dinara etc etc the lower ranked players must have a hard time getting sponsered etc.?

No doubt - this is an epic win for Vasilisa. Fine work in combination with cleverness and excellent physical condition. One could also claim: A new star is born.

Within half a year she can reach Top 30 if this streak continues. Congratulations! :inlove: :smooch:

Sharapova played her in the summer and said her dad walks around barefoot.
There's not much other information besides age, rank, and watching her play.

I beg to differ. I have followed her career since she was 14. And put her name into my sig when she was 15 :angel:

To be honest the only players who are well known in Russia (to the certain extent, of course) are Kafelnikov, Safin, Kournikova, Sharapova and maybe Myskina.

Kind of thought so.

Do they show the tounaments live on russian TV, or do You have get eurosport?

I guess football and maybe hockey gets most of the headlines?

Elena is definitely well known.
Sveta and Nadya also have good press coverage.

As I predicted, 2007 is gonna be a great year for her.

Good Luck next round. :wavey:


About her and her family - I saw them at Cincinnati - she was with her dad and a little brother. They were all really excited about her win and her dad was very proud of her. She was polite to a disabled person who wanted to meet a player, after her match. (I think the person was a Myskina fan who somehow didn't get to meet Myskina, so the organizers brought him to Bardina instead. :tape: :p ) Her dad was approached by Security in the stands, during the match and asked to put on his shirt! (No bare chests allowed in the stands, haha.) The little brother was running around to various matches and having fun. He was maybe about 11-12, and blond too.
