Well done Yanina. :yeah:

I must say I am absolutely thrilled with Vasi's performance even if it was in a losing effort. The 1st half of 2007 is still fresh in my mind when Vasi was just going through the motions turning up at one tournament after another winning an average of just three games. And then since Wimbledon 2007 there has been virtually nothing, just one Australian Open qualifying match and three 10K ITF matches.

So to see Vasi turn up in her first maindraw WTA tournament in well over a year and give someone as good as Yanina Wickmayer a run for her money is just brilliant. Vasi convinced me. She is serious about coming back. The girl has real ability when she is motivated. Lets not forget she got into the top 50 too. Well done Vasi, nice start. Keep it up. I missed you. Welcome back. :hug:

Yanina has been very bad lately and it seems like she's keeping up with this bad form.
Vasilisa lost R1 in a 10k, 2 weeks ago and in straight sets. Today she nearly defeated a top 75 player on her best surface and in a Tier III.
Still, good luck vs. Mauresmo I assume.
