Vladka really deserves her own thread:worship:
She has improved so much and is now a top 20 doubles player:bounce: She has won her first Wta title this year, reaches 3 more finals and was in the US Open semis:eek:
What an amazing year:)

In Australia she is going to play with Laura Granville.

Hope, she will play Fed Cup and the Olmpics next year:drool:

That's the match during which I got to discover the great fighter that is Vladka. And the morning of that match in Luxembourg round 1, I remember seeing her running in the streets of Luxembourg, in front of her hotel, very early! She seems to work so much, happy she gets results now!

Thanks! Actually I don't have, because first I wanted to watch the match, and when I film, that not easy, then when I could have done it, well, the match was really not good enough to be filmed! On one side or the other one... So I don't even have images of Cara and Liezel during that match, just the speeches! :wavey:

I attended the match yesterday. Vladka and Eva started the match very well, especially Vladka. She was so good at the serve (I got surprised because of her height that she could serve that well!). They lead 5-0 I think, then won it 6-3, is it? Eva has huge grounstrokes with her forehand, and used great returns, either cross or long line, really good. Her serve did not impress me though. Then second set was good on the first part, then they started to unfocus, and lost it totally because of their own mistakes. In Super Tie Break, that was very close. At 7-8*, well, I started to think it'd be difficult. Then followed 3 match points, and the girls made the best of it. They finally got their first and only matchpoint, and scored.
When leaving the court, they looked at my friends and I and thanked us for cheering. She is aware we are Liezel Huber's supporters, but took time to look at all of us at the end, and said "Merci" in French. I saw her again later, and once again she thanked me, and so did Eva. Their team is so funny, they have one head difference in height, but Vladka at the net ready to poach and Eva at the back hitting grounstrokes seems to be a great combination! I hope they do well tomorrow, if only they could avenge Cara and Liezel...

Vladka thanked me for cheering for her in Auckland when she & Laura played the Bitchianova sisters. ;) Unfortunately, I had to leave after a couple of days, so didn't see her other matches there. :( (stupid work) :lol: But I talked to her a bit in the players lounge too, and as Craig said, she was always waving, and cheerful, saying hi in Melbourne (isn't he lucky that I was there, otherwise she wouldn't know who the hell he was). :p :angel:

Feb 7th, 2008, 09:57 AM
Well guys, so I could attend both matches.

1. Vladka and Eva vs Fedak and Ditty
Good start of the match, but the other team, especially Fedak, played really well, shooting a lot from the baseline very strong in the center, as she did with Cara and Liezel. The set point was won on a no ad point if i recall well. Eva was not playing as well as two days before, I mean she could not shoot as many groundstrokes from the baseline on returns, mostly because serves were almost all closer to the T than to the exterior. and Vladka at the net did not seem to have the same hands than before, but really Fedak hit strong and very accurately.
Second set, Vladka and Eva played very wisely, aggressively, really as a team, accomplices, that was nice to watch. I'll show you vids whenever possible, i hope they'll stay together, i'll try to ask them today;
Super Tie break quite close, and I got scared cos Fedak found back her strategy to shoot strong in the middle, but Vladka and Eva found the strength in the hands to handle it, and won it quite esasily in the end.
at then end of the match, they jumped in the arms the one of the others, and Vladka immediately turned to my friends and I and showed us with the finger, as if to say "that's for you too!", cos we had been cheering a lot for the whole match. From the bench, they still looked at us, and sent us kisses and hellos; Before leaving the court, Vladka turned to us and talked in French "Guys, we won because of you!!!" which was not totally true, but well, that was nice from her. I met her another few times after that yesterday, and they gave me lots of smiles each time! Really nice girls! They also had a clinic with kids, and Vladka was so funny, she directed it all, the organizers were all stuned! She is so :kiss:
oh, another thing, their number one fan was .... Kookie! She stayed the whole match, and cheered for the girls;

2. Jugic Salkic and Navratilova
Crazy match, full of strange events, but Medina and Janette did not seem at their best, while mervana and Gabriela had great hands and played wisely from the second set; 2 match points saved by Mervana and Gabriella, and they won on the third one. But as much as I appreciate Mervana, I doubt they can challenge Vladka and Eva, mostly because the latter are a team, the former aren't. I mean you see on court and off court that Vladka and Eva get along very well, while for Mervana and Gabriella, you barely see them together off court, and on court, they sometimes seem to reproach the other one for any mistake.

So here it is, tomorrow, I'll root for Vladka! I'll let you know what happens then! :wavey:

Hey guys,

I was there at the match yesterday. Actually I had to go back to France early, but really did not want to leave before Vladka played! And that's good, she won!
So it began quite slowly, Yari serving well, Vladka not so well. At the net, Likhovtseva proved she still had a thing, but honestly, that's no longer the great hands she used to be... sad. Perebyinis was the strongest link of their team.
In the tie breaker, Vladka and Yari played wisely and could concluded easily, that was well deserved!
Second set, lots of breaks, and then Vladka fell. We all thought she got injured, but she stood up fast and did not seem to be hurt at all (maybe a few bruises, but nothing serious!). Then at the end, they could break on time, and Vladka could conclude on her serve game (after 40-15 I think).
At the end of the match, I went to talk to her. She told me immediatly "thanks, and I play on thursday!" but unfortunately, I told her I could not be there, but would be back for the semis. She told me "see you then so" and left and the little cars that take them from court 2 to the sportpaleis.
I met jelena_jankovic from this forum! Nice to have met you by the way. And let's hope Vladka can qualify for semis again...

Hey guys,

A little off topic, and yet not really: on WtaWorld, they're considering creating a doubles forum; Actually, they're talking about it, and they need to have an idea of how many people would be interested and would participate there. As Vladka is almost exclusively a doubles player, I thought some of you might be interested in supporting the project. Just go to that thread http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?p=12641411#post12641411 and say if you are for such a forum and how you would participate if it existed.
Thanks guys!

Mar 7th, 2008, 09:36 AM
Just to let you know that the new Doubles forum exists now, in GM, the access is on the top of the page! I hope we'll have fun there following Vladka's matches! ;)

This week Vladka is at home, but then she is going to play 4 tournaments in a row: Indian Wells, Miami, Amelia Island and Charlston!

There will be all the top doubles. So I really hope, she finds a strong partner!!!

I really hope that they can do well!...and maybe continue to play regularly...I think with a regular partner Vladka would be able to win a lot more! She is such a great doubles player, but this none of partners was ranked top 50:sad: She still did ok. But just look at the top teams...they know each other's game so well and that often makes the difference at crucial points...

But first beat Martina and Barbie...won't be easy...in Auckland Vladka and Laura lost despite winning more points:rolleyes:

No, actually, Misa doesn't wanna play with anyone in particular. She's playing with Garbin this week (well they already lost :lol: ) and I think she also plays with Garbin in Miami. But the three are all in my top 10 fave players, so I wish they'd team up with any combination together. ;)

I know this is Vladka's thread and sorry that I continue off topic. If I'm not mistaken so I think Alona was in tears after that match when they left the court. Doesn't make me feel bad though because 1) they beat Vladka and Eva at OGF final 2) they should learn to support each other when the going gets tough and not to sulk at one another.:rolleyes:

I have videos of the Bondarenkos during that match, that was awful, so awful I don't even dare to watch it again. Poor Kateryna! Alona spoilt the whole match.

About Rennae, I'll have to ask Cara once why she stayed so long with Rennae, that was so painful to watch for her supporters. That Madrid final in 2006 was really sad. Happy Cara found better now, and seems happy and always smiling off court.

For Vladka and Mariya: Match tonight, night session, I hope they won't be too impressed by the ambiance, and can play their game well.

It's nice that Vladka and Mariya got an evening match. I think they will do just fine as it's on stadium 2. If I remember correctly it's a nice size of a stadium, not too big not too small. I want them to win the whole thing so good luck tonight!!!

I Think they will play togehter all the tournaments in America (Miami, Amelia Island and Charlston)
And Maiya is already top 60, isn't she?
So she could play Rom and Berlin for sure...

And one or two lower tiers won't be bad for Vladka...e.g. Prague in her home country...

And I'm there to attend it!!!! :sad::sad::sad:

Well, this morning, the first person I meet when I arrive at the Open is Vladka! She recognized me, said hello, asked me how I was, when I had arrived..... and told me she played with Mariya again. After, I saw her at Mariya's match, and then again practicing with Klara Zakopalova. Of course I have vids! I'll post them when I'm back. Probably more news tomorrow! :wavey:

Thanks a lot for your first impressions:wavey:

But the draw is really horrible:sad:

It'll probably a good match...but why in the first round:fiery:

Yeah! They were laughing in Melbourne too! I was so surprised to see Klara smiling on court. :angel: Someone even commented in my pics thread that she's smiling alot. :lol: But Vladka always seems to have fun at training.

Wow - they were serving for the match at 5-4 and dropped serve 2ce to lose the second set 5-7. :sad: Now down 4-7 in the super tb.

OMFG I have no words right now...they were up 4:1 and had a chance to go up 5:1...there even was one matchpoint at 5:4...Fucking no-ad!!!
At 5:6 they lead 40:0 and can't reach the tie-break :-(
So sad and disappointed for Vladka!

It really har to see things positive right now, but I really hope they continue to play together...they had really bad draws...but they beat Peschke/Stubbs and lost very close matches to Hantuyama and Black/Huber...

Hard to be positive? Why? I mean yeah OK they lsot - but it's not like Black and Huber are some hack team. They did really well. They should have won - maybe it's just they aren't used to playing together, but still it's not THAT bad. ;)

Hard to be positive right after losing such a close match with so many chances...of course they did great...but they should have won this match...Vladka is so hard-working...She doesn't deserve this...

But that what happens with the new rules...one point decides everything...

Yeah - I don't like the no ad rule either.

Hey guys,

I almost died hundred times today, what an unusual match. First, Liezel was really injured at her back, then an incident with someone throwing stuff on the court at 1-0 40-30 second set, they had to wash it all, Cara almost got hit by french fries! Then the rain from the end of first set to the end but never enough to stop playing...
Cara and above all Liezel were not well at all in first srt, while Vladka and Mariya played wisely, especially on no ads. At least the 5 first games played with no ad. And almost all games in the match actually. Then second set, Liezel started it crying with pain, then Cara started to have pressure too much, and Vladka and Mariya kept on playing brilliantly. Then the incident, then a few more crapy points from Carazel, and then one huge point won by Cara, and they got back in the match 1-4 down. Vladka and Mariya never really played bad, but Cara and Liezel fought very hard to come back and win it. But God that was close...
What a good match from Mariya and Vladka, I also hope they'll play more together.

I don't like it either, but honestly I think Vladka and Mariya won more no ad points in that match than Cara and Liezel. ;)

Yeah, there was one at 5-4 deuce... it was break point for Carazel, but then also matchpoint for Vladka/Mariya. ;)

Not sure Vladka will ever talk to me again... I'm so sad that match had to be against them, I truly appreciate her and Mariya. Actually, there were only four players I appreciated a lot in that tournament, and that was these four!

That might be true! But Cara and Liezel won the important ones...at 4:5 5:5 and 6:5! All credit to them! But I don't like that one point decides a game :rolleyes:

Thar was probably a really unpleasant situation for you:wavey: But in the end your favs won;)

For me it would be tough, if Vladka had play against JJ,
but as JJ plays doubles only for fun and I know Vladka a lot better, I would always cheer for her:kiss:

To be honest, if Misa was playing against Vladka in doubles, I'd cheer for Misa still. But I'd also cheer a bit for Vladka - keep it a bit even. ;)

Bethanie is a fun girl and a good doubles player!

Mattek ne veut pas toujours dire excentrique !! Alors oui, l'equipe Vladka/Mattek peut etre une equipe interessante et non pas seulement pour Mattek !!
