I read this in an article:



Other players under injury clouds are French 2008 runner-up Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, who withdrew from his Sydney International quarter-final with a back injury, German Nicolas Kiefer, who rolled his ankle during the Hopman Cup, and Russian eighth seed Svetlana Kuznetsova, who has an abdominal strain.
But tournament director Craig Tiley said officials had received assurances from all three players that they would be able to play.

Well,according to a russian article I read this morning,Tarpishev thinks Sveta will be able to play Fed Cup in Moscow despite the injury.He says Sveta suffers from a chronic injury in abdominal muscles (I didn't know it was chronical),but he doesn't think it's too serious as she plans to play the Australian Open.


Here's in russian:


По мнению Шамиля Тарпищева, Кузнецова сможет сыграть в Москве, несмотря на травму, которая не позволила теннисистке продолжить борьбу на турнире в Сиднее.
«У Светланы хроническая травма мышц живота. Но не думаю, что это очень серьезно – во всяком случае, она планирует сыграть на Australian Open», – приводит слова Президента Федерации тенниса России пресс-служба ФТР.
Maybe some of the russian speakers here can confirm I understood it all well.thanks in advance :D

I don't understand her decision to play doubles :confused: only if she wants to help out Nadia, otherwise it’s very unwise decision.

Sounds like Sveta, though, to hold to her agreements if at all possible. She wouldn't want to back out on a friend, if Nadia had really been wanting to play. I just hope it wasn't unwise.

Maybe it's that she doesn't have official Australian citizenship yet, but it's "good enough" for the AO site :lol:. That's my best guess.

I'm asking any of the Russians where Tambov is-sounds like somewhere obscure in Siberia, like Sharapova's hometown.

well i'm not so sure Sveta will survive tonight so I can't envision now a Sveta vs Jie match :p they played a good mtch in Beijing SF,was it SF? My memory is bad :o And Sveta took good care of Bondarenko younger sister at Wimbledon.

But still,first let's hope she wins vs Alona :scared: she's 0-2 in head-to-head.I hope Olga and her come up with a good strategy this time and that Sveta feels ok on court.

I think that was a quarterfinal; then she played Srebotnik in the semis en route to Dinara. Part of me wants a Sveta/Dinara rematch, as those two could have a long rivalry. But I can't go that far now; got to get through Bondarenko the Elder first :help:. I think both of Allona's wins came on clay, though.

So in theory, if Sveta wins tonight, and Bondarenko the Younger wins, then she'll play both sisters back to back?

yeah both previous matchs were played on clay:first in Warsaw 2006 and last year in Berlin.I remember following the Berlin one via livescores and found it really strange as Sveta won 6-1 the first set and then seems like she disappeared,she ended up losing the 2 other sets very clearly :confused: As this match was never on tv nor could not read any report about it,I don't know what went suddenly wrong.

I don't want Sveta to face Dinara again.I had enough last year :tape:

I ended up watching the match too on television cuz wasnt feeling well.

I personaly think sveta is doing great. not forgetteing she didnt train before going into the australian open and having a injury just before that. and what I have seen and that is from 5-4 first set it looked ok to me. the unforced errors could be less but she was moving a lot and not always staying at the baseline I can see some little difference in her game already not much but when you look good you see it.

and about jie zheng I dont really know again she didnt train before australian open and we all thought sveta was not even making the first round now she is in 4 th and everybody is forgetting about that.
I have to say she has some chances and the ones she gets in the match she has to take.
