This is the softest quarter, and Sveta should be playing Justine in a SF
But, Sveta hasn't well this year, so far.

Kuznetsova a Hit with Dubai School Children

Dubai, UAE, February 19th, 2007: Russian tennis star Svetlana Kuznetsova brought smiles to the faces of hundreds of Dubai school children today when she made a special visit to the Deira International School.

The world number five presented 10-year-old Halah Ashrass, who was the winner of the Dubai Tennis Championships ‘spot the difference’ competition, with four tickets to the Dubai Duty Free Women’s Open final as well as a cap and t-shirt signed by many of the top players from last year’s tournament.

“I love being back in school, it brings back some good memories,” said Kuznetsova.

“This is a great school and it’s brilliant that they have courts here.”

“I wasn’t so lucky as my school didn’t have such facilities and I spent a lot of time in between school and the court.”

“Every kid has to believe in themselves, if you believe and work hard for a dream you can get whatever you want.”

The popular competition received over 1,000 entries from school children around the region.

“Today was excellent,” said Halah. “The best part was being on stage with Svetlana, she was very nice. I’m going to take my brother and my mum and dad to the final with the tickets I won. I really hope Svetlana is in the final.”

Kuznetsova joins Justine Henin and Amelie Mauresmo at the star-studded Dubai Duty Free Women’s Open which started today.

“I love being here in Dubai,” said Kuznetsova.

“I love diamonds so when I come here I always go shopping. The city is always changing so much and I wish I could spend more time here.”

“I’ve got some great memories from Dubai and I’ve beaten some great players in previous years which gave me confidence.”

“I’m looking forward to challenging myself against Justine Henin.”

Good to know Sveta and Alicia are up to winning ways again. Good luck for them tomorrow - that is, once Sveta has had a gentle warm-up in her singles against Meghann. (Poor Meghann, set to be beaten by Kuzy two days running...!)

Also in semis in Doubles with Molik hope she can give JH a great fight I sadly can't see her winning although an upst would be awesome I think they could beat Schiavone and Kata in Doubles ;)

It's order of play for tommorrow. Is it a joke? How Sveta will prapare for the double match after her singles?:confused: :help:

Yep, slightly strange order of play. Can't see why they didn't put the two doubles matches the other way around. Anyway, I really hope Sveta can cause an upset and beat Justine. GO KUZY!!!!

I also heard that JH was brilliant in the 3rd. I can't wait to see this

Should be a good doubles final. In singles, I don't know if Sveta will be able to stay in the top 10 this year. So far in 2007, she hasn't played like a top 10er.

maryc
Feb 23rd, 2007, 09:43 PM
I still believe. An on-form Sveta is unbeatable. (And I know
I'm just a silly amateur who plays league tennis, but the
head is the important aspect here. However, it can be used
for good--imagine what happens when Sveta
learns that she is unbeatable (oh ok, nearly unbeatable.))

Mary

maryc
Feb 23rd, 2007, 09:44 PM
(but of course, I am a long-time Mauresmo fan, so
I have experience in believing for a long time.
I will be patient with Sveta; I just want her to come back
to California!)

Good to see those photos, thanks. Always nice to see our wonderful Sveta. Seems like she must have had a tough day, playing six sets of tennis. Great first set against Justine it must have been, pity about the end result. Yes, I think it's in the head, I know Sveta hasn't done great this year so far, and I believe she has to rethink how she plays the rallies so that she can come through the tough matches. Good luck to her!! An on-form Sveta is (almost) unbeatable. I couldn't bear thinking about a Top 10 without her in it...
Oh, and good luck with Alicia in the doubles final...

maryc
Feb 24th, 2007, 04:37 PM
I have an idea: Sveta and Justine should play doubles! Then
Sveta might think of Justine just as another friend/buddy, and
beat her, just as Sveta beat Mauresmo last year. (But Justine really
doesn't play doubles, does she? And truly, I would prefer to see
Sveta play w/ Nadia (I hope I get to see that happen live someday!))
