Let's forget about Berlin disappointment and move on to Rome.I hope Sveta does the same ;) Here's one reason to cheer up: this year in Doha she also had an early exit and the following week she was playing the final in Dubai.Why not the same now?

I don't know when the draw comes out,but whoever finds it post it here,please ;)


FORZA SVETA!!!!! :bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Go Sveta!!! Here's to a fantastic week in Rome!!
She has some time to practice, get herself prepared, and then blow the rest of the field apart! And Justine is obviously vulnerable right now, too, so I'm hoping Sveta can go all the way...

Should reach the quarters with not too much trouble since some of the players in her section are lacking form at the moment.

who had something with her knee,Justine or Sveta?

Sveta leads 6-2,1-0.Please,Sveta,stay in the match for at least one more set.

Is anybody worried about Cornet? Surely Iam.
She has good chance of upsetting Sveta if our girl plays some crappy tennis like in Berlin :unsure:

Bероника
May 15th, 2008, 02:42 PM
I'm always worried when it comes to Sveta as you never know which Sveta is going to show up.Sure,Cornet on clay is a dangerous opponent,she's a young player on the rise who has nothing to lose.So let's hope the best Sveta shows up.

Good luck!! :D

Chrisi
May 15th, 2008, 03:30 PM
I hope she'll win it. But Cornet can be really tough :/

Good luck, Sveta!

BTW: I hope she'll act great at RG, because there have never been better chances to become Number ONE!

And with Justine's retirement,Sveta had a chance for a flukey #1 for a week or 2.
But she doesn't want it.
Maria, Ana, and JJ might all lose early in Paris.
Then Sveta could be #1. But she's playing awful.

Found this on the official site of the tournament:


CORNET STUNS KUZNETSOVA
French sensation Alizet Cornet upsets number 4 in the world


Alizet Cornet could be the 2008 Internazionali BNL d'Italia cinderella story. The French talent from Nice outplayed world number 4, Svetlana Kuznetsova of Russia on the Stadio Pietrangeli. The match which was scheduled for the campo 1 (court 1) was finally moved to center court. Cornet decided to rise to the occasion by imposing speeed and winners on Kuznetsova who was having troublew putting one foot in front of the other. Before she knew it the Russian was down 6-2 4-1.

She was in a slump, which she knew she could come out of. Cornet on the other hand starting getting the shakes at the idea of sidelining such a figure of world tennis. The Russian felt a slight drop of intensity from the girl from Nice. She won the next 3 games to tie it 4, breaking Cornet twice.

At 4-4, however, Kuznetsova fell back into her early match errors and gave away her service game without scoring a point. Cornet then served for the match. Up 40-0, it took "Alice", as the Italian fans called her, all 3 match points to end it.

Cronet who is reaching Tier 1 quaterfinals for the second time this season (Charleston 2008), will play Serne Williams for a place in the semis.
