She won both singles and doubles.:worship: Shame that other polish girls didn't come but it's because a lack of sponsorship. Kania, Linette and Kawa could play quallies...

Jan 26th, 2009, 11:08 AM

Jan 26th, 2009, 02:56 PM
she was 1-3 down in singles in second set and also a break down in second set in doubles so good wins :D

The winner/error count is odd. Both have 0 winners and few UEs (2 and 5). There must be a ton of forced errors...

Caipirinha Guy
Jun 2nd, 2009, 05:43 PM
I don't know what to begin from. So much happened! I am really happy with this win. It was tough but I played a good match. I didn't also used a lot of chances and I must tell that Laura really didn't play that bad. I have never played such a tie-break in my life. The first mini-break was at 8-8! Luckily, I managed to win a first set and I don't hide that I had a luck at tie-break. I got to "free" points because of double faults of my opponent.
The second set was not mine and in the first game of 3rd set I had three break points! At 5-2 I had two match balls and I was incredibly stressed. Luckily I managed to win while I was serving at 5-3. Just after the match I couldn't believe it. But it just happened.
Tomorrow I play also with left-handed player - Channel Simmonds from RSA. I am optimistic and I will try to do my best.
Keeps your fingers crossed!

Zania won first round :)Next opponent top seed Timea Babos :unsure:
Too bad she lost in doubles, many points out now.

Found an article about her match against Robson, I think it's worth posting:


The 15-year-old lost to Sandra Zaniewska of Poland 7-6, 1-6, 6-3 after one hour and 54 minutes of highly competitive tennis at Roland Garros.

At two years her senior, Zaniewska had much greater strength from the back of the court than Robson but the Briton fought valiantly only to come up short in a tense final set.

Murray, who faced Fernando Gonzalez on Court Philippe Chatrier this afternoon, has honed his game on the slower surface after spending time at a clay-court training camp in Barcelona as a teenager and that is a route Robson intends to follow.

The top seed said: I hate losing so it's never easier or worse than anywhere else. Andy struggled on clay when he was younger and now he is in the quarters. So I am going to try and do the same as him and keep improving.

She [Zaniewska] hit a lot of drop shots and that's how she won a lot of points. That was her tactic the whole match and it worked.

I ran a lot and now I am pretty tired. I tried my best and at times I could have served better and done a couple of things better but at the end of the day I tried my best so there wasn't much more I could do.

Once you get the ball it's hard to know where to hit it because if you hit it short, she is going to read it so you have to think about where you are going to hit it as you are running and hitting the ball.

By the final set I was extremely tired of running.

Robson battled back from a break down in the opening set to force a tie-break. Zaniewska had the first set point on serve at 8-7 but Robson produced a superb return and forehand winner to draw level.

She then earned a mini-break to force a set point of her own only to serve a double fault.

Zaniewska eventually took the breaker 12-10 but Robson raced through the second set in just 27 minutes to level the match.

But Zaniewska's superior stamina eventually won through and Robson, who will now focus on taking two English GCSE's, admitted: She is definitely more physically developed but I don't think age matters unless they are a whole lot more experienced. She was a lot stronger.

Robson must now wait until next Monday to find out if she has done enough to earn a main draw wildcard into the Wimbledon women's singles from the All England Club.

Jun 19th, 2010, 11:59 PM
I've just seen the clips....... so disturbing :sobbing:

Anyway! Zaniewska is in the final of 10k in Koln, where she'll face Julia Babilon and... there will be a livestream :hearts: here: http://www.tennislive.tv/

Jun 20th, 2010, 12:40 PM
Zaniewska takes her 2nd title of the year beating Babilon 64 64 in the finals. The match wasn't impressive, Sandra just stayed very consistent in defense, and Julia was hitting UEs one after another. Nice drop shots though.

Feb 10th, 2011, 01:21 PM
her drop shots :hearts: She's doing well at Rancho Mirage, advanced both in singles and doubles.

Her gestures after each pts in doubles was really...comic :lol: so expressive.

also took her pic ;) (at my pic acct)

todays she meets Albanese in singles

and with Guskova meets Ishizu/Nakamura in doubles.

itf website;

Ambition in tennis: to win all grand slam tournaments.


She again lost to Pliskovas (lost in Quali at Rancho Santa Fe when she teamed with Ozgen) in the doubles final.

Her serve at Semi and Final was unstable, and she conceded the match at tiebreak by committing an DF :sobbing:

But I was much impressed with her good hands. :)

Watch out for her, she is coming.
Top300 at the end of the season isn't that unrealistic for her. Already with her result from Cairns where she is in SF at least she is around top330. She has a real shot to make final in Cairns, may be seeded in two next tournaments. Will play 25k in Darwin (Australia) and at the week of WTA Beijing Esperance 25k also in Australia.

Sep 17th, 2011, 10:47 AM

She will play Australian events until the end of the year so it seems she wants to qualify to Australian Open. :p She had her best result in junior career there too. ;) (doubles final with Krunić, lost to McHale/Tomljanović in Super TB).

She will be 4th ranked Polish after this tournament. She'll be higher than Magda Linette.

Mar 4th, 2012, 01:11 AM
Sandra wants to approach the top 200 in the next months; hopefully she will make it :yeah:

Duan will take on fifth seed Sandra Zaniewska of Poland who upset South African teen Chanel Simmonds, the top seed in straight sets 7-6(4) 6-2. Zaniewska had made just one previous final at US$25,000 level, Cairns last year but says she’s just pleased to be there challenging for the title.

“Obviously I’m happy. It’s great to be in another final. I’m really, really happy to have made it through. I don’t mind if it’s indoors or outdoors in the final. I’ll just keep the ball in play and hang in there. I want to move from around the 300 ranking to around 200 in the next six months which means I can make qualifying for the Grand Slams,” said Zaniewska (below) who believes Polish tennis is on the rise and she wants to be part of its high profile. “There are top ranked players who are leading the way and for me as I change from juniors to seniors I can see there’s potential to make a good career if I keep on improving.”

I would have never thought she would get anywhere close top200 when I watched her 2 years ago. She's pretty much a shoe in now.
Got to the final in Bundaberg beating Namigata 2 & 1 and will face another Japanese Aoyama in the final.

Im afraid its another Linette-case though.

Linette seems she changed her coach and something changed in her life (well Kasia Piter's brother is travelling with her for the tournaments now :tape:). About Linette it's most about the confidence. Zania is training in Turkey in the same academy as Gajdosova. She's totally a different case.

Kolejny ciezki i dobry mecz. Niestety sie nie udalo, ale walczylam do konca i bylam bardzo blisko. Wielkoszlemowy debiut zaliczam do udanych :) jutro wracam do domu (wycofalam sie z nastepnych dwoch turniejow - Maribor i Zlin 25,000$) ze wzgledu na uraz plecow, ktorego nabawilam sie na lidze w Berlinie. Jutro po powrocie sprawdze czy jest to cos powaznego. Dziekuje za wsparcie ! :)

Another tough and good match. Didn't make it, unfortunately, but put up a good fight and I was really close. Overall, as for my first Slam, Im pretty happy with the result :) tomorrow I'm going back home (I withdrew from next two tournaments - Maribor and Zlin 25,000$) due to back injury I got during league matches in Berlin. Later tomorrow I'll check whether it's something serious.

Sandra in WTA Birmingham quallies :cheer: (it's her 2nd grass tournament this year. First one was in 25k Mildura, Australia)

(1)ZHENG, Jie CHN vs GRANDIN, Natalie RSA
(12) ZANIEWSKA, Sandra POL vs KOPS-JONES, Raquel USA

First one is winnable. Kops-Jones is unranked doubles specialist.

Jun 8th, 2012, 09:10 PM
Does she still have her new coach Tina Pisnik? (Here Tina and me at Wimby 2000) and its a real pic! ;)

Has Sandra played and the sb don't works?

Caipirinha Guy
Jun 9th, 2012, 02:07 PM
Sandra until she found Tina didn't have any coach who could actually travel with her (she trains in Turkish Academy in Istanbul as well - the same as Jarka Gajdosova). In Poland she has also one coach but he works with other players as well so he can't travel with her. That said, I think she will cooperate with Tina for a longer time as she needs someone who will introduce WTA world to her and Tina is the best person to do that as she was herself top30 player.

Jun 9th, 2012, 02:17 PM
Seems like they wait for C3 to be ready, match now on the sb...

She's really impressive this year, and so solid mentally. Second time she plays in GS qualies, second time she's in the final round and on very different surfaces :yeah:

In the same time, Janowicz has qualified for the main draw. Good day for the Poles :)

Nie bez szans w meczu z Peng, która nie grała na trawie chyba w tym sezonie. :)

Jun 25th, 2012, 04:51 PM
Sandra has just won the second set against Peng, 7-6(3) ! Sandra is going to serve first in the final set.

Jun 25th, 2012, 05:46 PM
Finally she lost the match, 2-6 7-6(3) 3-6. There was a medical time out at 3-2 (I think), but I don't know if it was for Shuai or for Sandra. Great fight though, I didn't expect that :yeah: The last game of the match, on Sandra's serve, was quite long with some MP saved by Sandra as well as some game points wasted.

Sandra really impresses me more and more, she seems to be so solid... If she keeps this form, she can reach the top 100 soon :)

Vamos Feńa
Jun 26th, 2012, 08:43 AM
Impressive from her :) I hope she won't have to play US Qualies and that she will somehow keep up her form :yeah:

- Brakło mi doświadczenia na pewno. W tych ważniejszych momentach ona była lepsza i to jej udało się wygrać. Nie jestem tak do końca zadowolona z tego meczu, choć myślę, że jak na pierwszy raz tutaj i te wszystkie emocje, to nie było źle. Ona jest 32. na świecie, a ja nie miałam nic do stracenia - powiedziała 20-letnia Zaniewska, która w Wimbledonie już startowała, ale w rywalizacji juniorek.

- To mój pierwszy Wimbledon tak naprawdę, bo gra wśród juniorek to zupełnie inny świat. To są właściwie dzieci, które patrzą na tych największych: o tu Nadal, a tu Federer. Tym razem jestem praktycznie jedną z nich, więc jest trochę inaczej. Cieszę się z tego, bo mam za sobą bardzo dobry rok i chciałabym to kontynuować. Tutaj zdobyłam w sumie 65 punktów, ale 30 mi spada za ubiegłoroczne starty w turniejach ITF. Jednak muszę regularnie wspinać się w rankingu i będzie dobrze. Chciałabym tu wrócić za rok, ale już wtedy nie przebijać się przez eliminacje - zaznaczyła.

Spotkanie trwało dwie godziny i osiem minut. Chinka zakończyła je przy trzecim meczbolu, przy serwisie rywalki. Atutem w grze Polki były dropszoty oraz mocny topspinowy bekhend, który przynosił jej sporo punktów, szczególnie w tie-breaku drugiego seta.

- Peng to druga tenisistka z pierwszej setki, z jaką miałam okazję grać. Dwa tygodnie temu w Birmingham przegrała ostatni mecz w eliminacjach z Jie Zheng. Wiadomo jak Chinki grają, szczególnie na trawie, trzeba je przede wszystkim wybić z rytmu. Próbowałam slajsem, ale ona z tych slajsów robiła sobie co chciała w większości. To nie wystarczyło, więc musiałam cały czas mieszać rytm - powiedziała Zaniewska.

Polka, sklasyfikowana na 160. miejscu w rankingu WTA Tour, do turnieju głównego przebiła się przez trzy rundy eliminacji. Dzięki temu w Londynie zadebiutowała w Wielkim Szlemie.

- Przejście eliminacji tutaj, na trawie, która nie jest moją ulubioną nawierzchnią, potem rozegranie bardzo dobrego meczu w pierwszej rundzie, było dla mnie szokiem. To daje pewność siebie, że potrafię grać w tenisa. Myślę, że teraz będzie coraz lepiej. Po Wimbledonie wrócę na korty ziemne i zagram dwa turnieje ITF rangi 50 i 100 tysięcy dolarów w Europie. Pod koniec lipca przejdę już na twarde korty i będę się przygotowywać do eliminacji US Open

Dear Fans, please forgive me my long absence in tennis and Facebook.. This week I have played my first tournament, since I lost in US Open qualies. In the second game of my match in NY, I sprained my sacroiliac (SI) joint. Because of that, I was forced to get some rest and after two weeks I started rehab. Tournament in Clermont-Ferrand (ITF 25,000$) was meant to be a test for my joint, I still wasn't able to serve fully, but it went quite well overall. For the rest of this week, I'm doing rehab and from Monday on I'm back on court and I will continue my practices, my next tournament will be 08.10 ITF 50,000$ in Joue les Tours, France.

Expect her to play all the clay tournaments until the end of October. She needs match practise afterall. Clay is her best surface and it doesn't cause so much injuries like hardcourts.

Actually I'm not sure she's really trying to win them, I guess she plays these little tournaments mainly to get some practice before coming back to higher levels. There's an event in Sharm El Sheikh each week all year long, so it's quite convenient :lol:

Witajcie w Nowym Roku! Mam nadzieje ze rozpoczal sie on dla Was pomyslnie. Chcialabym sie z Wami podzielic wiadomosciami na temat mojego zdrowia i prawdopodobnie najbardziej bolesna decyzja jaka w zyciu podjelam. Na poczatku tego tygodnia mialam rezonans dolnej czesci plecow, czyli tej, ktora mi dokucza juz od dluzszego czasu. Niestety wyniki nie byly obiecujace. W skrocie wyszlo na to ze mam wypadniety dysk oraz spondylolize z kilkoma innymi, 'mniejszymi' dolegliwosciami. W zwiazku z tym musze narazie wstrzymac moja kariere tenisowa na czas nieokreslony. Wstrzymac, poniewaz nie jestem gotowa by ja zakonczyc. W najblizszych dniach/tygodniach/miesiacach bede obserwowac moje cialo i jak regauje na aktywnosc fizyczna, obecnie nie jestem w stanie zagrac treningu bez bolu. Mam nadzieje ze kolejne posty do Was beda bardziej optymistyczne i ze uda mi sie kontynuowac realizacje moich marzen. Pozdrawiam

Hello in New Year! I hope it has started well for you. In this post I would like to update you on my health condition and probably the hardest decision I have ever made in my life. Beginning of this week I had a MRI scan for my lower back, the part of the back that is bothering me for quite some time now. Unfortunately, the results weren't promising. It turns out I have a complete herniation and spondylosis, along with some other 'minor' injuries. Because of that, I am forced to put my career on hold for now. I am putting it on hold, because I am not ready to quit just yet. In the next days/weeks/months I will be observing how my body reacts on physical activity, currently I am not able to practice without pain. I hope my future posts to You will be more optimistic and that I will get a chance to fight for my dreams once again. Best regards, Sandra.


Jan 9th, 2014, 01:05 PM
she should take a surgery and come back next season :shrug:

Jan 9th, 2014, 01:28 PM
Sandra :'( I truly hope she will be able to overcome those physical issues...

Jan 9th, 2014, 02:17 PM
Omg, that is such awful news...she was doing so well in 2012. :sad: :hug: Poor Sandra.

Good news on facebook:

Mam nowe wiadomosci.. dobre! Zaciagnelam opinii jeszcze jednego lekarza, z holenderskiej federacji tenisowej. Skany moich plecow zostaly potem wyslane do jeszcze jednego radiologa, ktory ma duze doswiadczenie ze sportowcami, a w szczegolnosci z tenisistami. Wedlug jego opisu, 'jedynymi' moimi dolegliwosciami sa: jeden wypadniety dysk i jeden wysuwajacy sie dysk. Spondylolizy (na szczescie) nie ma. Z tymi informacjami jestem gotowa by rozp oczac rehabilitacje, ktora wstepnie ma potrwac 4-6 tygodni, jednak moze to byc krocej lub dluzej, ciezko powiedziec. Bedziemy ewaluowac moj postep co kilka dni i zobaczymy gdzie nas on zaprowadzi. Chcialabym Wam podziekowac za wszystkie dobre wiadomosci i komentarze, niezmiernie mi milo wiedziec ze jest Was tam tak wielu i ze zyczycie mi jak najlepiej. Ja, z calego serca, zycze Wam tego samego!

Mar 18th, 2014, 07:15 PM
Good news again :)

Dobry wieczor (od razu na wstepie przepraszam za brak polskich znakow)! Chcialabym sie podzielic z Wami dobrymi wiadomosciami. Wczoraj mialam ostatnia (miejmy nadzieje) wizyte u mojego lekarza i wszystko idzie w dobrym kierunku. Ostatnie dwa tygodnie spedzilam na mocniejszym przygotowaniu fizycznym i stopniowo zwiekszalam ilosc czasu na korcie. Na dzien dzisiejszy nie jest jeszcze idealnie ale juz nie moge sie doczekac pierwszych meczy turniejowych. Jezeli sie dostane, to bede grac eliminacje 50ki we Francji w ten weekend (obecnie jestem 8 oczekujaca). Nastepnie zagram dwie 10ki w Egipcie, od 31 marca do 14 kwietnia, zeby zobaczyc jak moje plecy reaguja gdy bede grac wieksza ilosc meczy dzien po dniu. Chcialabym podziekowac wszystkim, ktorzy byli ze mna podczas tych trudnych miesecy i wszystkim tym ktorzy ciagle we mnie wierza, a w szczegolnosci moim rodzicom, Agisko Polska, Voxel S.A., InTime tennis i oczywiscie Wam!

Good evening! I'd like to share some good news with you tonight. Yesterday I saw my doctor for the (hopefully) last time and everything seems to be going well. Last two weeks have been physically tough for me, as I have been working on my fitness level a lot and I was gradually increasing the amount of time spent on court. As of today, it is not perfect yet but I can't wait to get some tournament rhythm again. If I get it, I will play qualifying of the ITF 50k in France this weekend (for now, I am 8 alternate). After that, I will play two 10k's in Egypt, 31 March-14 April, to see how my back reacts on playing couple of matches in a row. I would like to thank everyone that has been with me during those tough months and all of those that still believe in me, my parents, Agisko, Intime Tennisschool and You!

Q: Sandro, w takim razie nie pojawisz się w Katowicach?
Sandra Zaniewska: Niestety nie w tym roku, ale obiecuje ze zrobie wszystko zeby pojawic sie tam w 2015!
