No sign of that injury she had in Sydney - looks like she was free of it in Melbourne and in Moscow. Let's hope it's a thing of the past and she can enjoy the rest of this season uninhibited.
Just wonder what might have happened had she successfully served for the match in Melbourne against Serena... but I know, it's no use worrying about that now...
Anyway, with a week's rest and training, let's hope the draw is kind and she can go a long way in Dubai. VAMOS SVETA!!

It's the first match of Sveta vs Vesnina,but that doesn't mean she doesn't know Lena's game as they have played together doubles and they've been often together in Fed Cup team so probably have practised together for a number of times.

Hi Veronika, sorry to bother you. I'm not really with it. The green bars are they credits? And as a courtesy to my fellow board members should I be giving credits? :confused: Apologies for the silly questions. I should probably be in the off topic thread.
On a happier note Amelie won today, which was wonderful, I'm sure Elena will win lots more.

Света_мой_№1
Feb 16th, 2009, 02:56 PM
I never open a thread anymore.

but this time it was a really bad match I hope this isnt the gameplan olga had for sveta she was playing to much on the lines trying to do it to perfect she should just wait for the right points. hitting those lines needs a lot of power if she would play a few balls a little bit shorter and then speed up the game by suddenly hitting a line she would have more chances against elena.

but I am just easy talking here but really hope this isnt the gameplan

Bероника
Feb 16th, 2009, 03:00 PM
oh mel,it's certainly not your fault :hug:

I also wish she'd play doubles again


I don't know about gameplan,all i did see today was sveta overhitting the ball time and time again,you can't win a tennis match this way.

Vanity Bonfire
Feb 16th, 2009, 03:05 PM
I'm not really seeing the improvement in Sveta's game that I wanted to see either. I really don't know what Olga is doing. Her second serve has improved a bit in my eyes but that's pretty much it.

Is there any chance she can play before Indian Wells, like in Monterrey? I know Venus is scheduled to play in one of the Mexican events. I hate this new WTA rule with one top 10 player allowed in certain events, it sucks!

Света_мой_№1
Feb 16th, 2009, 03:06 PM
but what I noticed also was that she didnt seem moved by this loss. normaly when it is going wrong like this so talks to herself like that she should have dont it different at least that is what she says its all russian so to me it can be anything.


what I also noticed that the ball boys where so cute they were little and running with their short legs behind the ball. one time sveta had thrown her towel over a little guy and he was completly gone.

Thanks, may be Sveta carried to much about attacks this time and did not want play safe more , I found some articles

A year after reaching the final in Dubai, Kuznetsova’s challenge ended in the second round when she fell 6-4 3-6 6-0 to fellow Russian Elena Vesnina.

Kuznetsova failed to find any rhythm except for a short spell in the second set and in the final set qualifier Vesnina had to do little more than wait for the seventh seed to make an error.

“She played a basic game and I lost myself,” Kuznetsova told reporters. “All the time unforced errors and I didn’t feel anything on the court. I was so frustrated. I just wasn’t there. It was horrible. I was not in control of my game at all.”


http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news?slug=reu-womendubai_pix&prov=reuters&type=lgns
Vesnina, ranked 75th in the world and a qualifier here, was thrilled with her victory.

“She’s obviously a top 10 player, so it’s even more special,” the 22-year-old Russian said. “I think I really troubled her today. She wasn’t comfortable at all and I feel she was totally lost in the third set. She kept looking at her coach.”

Kuznetsova said the fast court was a problem.

“The court was fast, and I just could not get the feel of the ball throughout the match,” Kuznetsova said. “I am now off to Moscow, and I really need to work hard on my game.”

The main draw at Indian Wells generally doesn't start until about the first Wednesday/Thursday, with the seeded players playing the first weekend (that is under the old tournament system, I'm not sure if they'll change it this year with the Roadmap thingy in place), so yeah, Sveta has about three, possibly three and a half weeks to bust her ass off on the tennis court.

Hi Mel,

I have not seen this match. If the discussion was at the start of the match please ignore my comments below. As my comments would only be valid if the discussion took place during the match

I wonder if the Umpire was thinking she wasn't trying hard enough during the match.
The Umpire must not have given Sveta a warning, as there is quite enough controversy surrounding this tournament anyway.
Personally I don't think Sveta would tank a match.

Lindsay Davenport had terrible trouble with her serve at the 2008 U.S. Open

From her interview after the match.

Q. Have you ever started a game with seven faults?

LINDSAY DAVENPORT: I don't think so, but I've never ‑‑ I guess what they call it the yips on your serve, I don't know where it came from. Probably made came from all my years making fun of people that had it. That was my karma coming back. That was my joke.

Bероника
Feb 18th, 2009, 05:30 PM
mel,when she talked with the umpire,at the beginning of the match?


I lso don't think she would tank a match.Seemed to me more that she was not able to play any good as she didn't feel the ball as she said.Or maybe she was not feeling good emotionally for whatever reason and when these things/days happen it's difficult to do anything right.Just an oppinion,of course.I don't know why she was feeeling that way the other day.

Well at least Vesnina has managed to get to QF,it feels a little bit less bad,but only a little bit,we all know sveta could win lena in straight sets if playing her good game.Oh well...next time and on to next tourney.

Well I am sorry but I think you got me wrong or I am getting you wrong.

but all I am saying is that sveta was saying she already tired from fed cup and felt like shit. but she used other words.
and it was before the match when they go to the empire to discuss who serves first and on wich side.

I dont know that's what I got out of that conversation maybe you should look the first 7 minutes of the match then you can hear it yourself cuz I have watched it over and over again. and I hear the same all over again

I guess it's a little consolation that Dinara and Jelena both played like crap this week too :help:. I haven't been paying any attention beyond that since the other day.

Well I didn't watch the matchs as I could not be bothered to watch any since Sveta went out the other day :tape:,but I'm not really shocked or surprised by the Dinara and Jelena upsets since I know both Razzano and Kanepi are good players and can play a lot more than their rankings suggest.Razzano even defeated Sveta at Wimbledon several years ago and Kanepi almost did it this year.I think it's common thing now that the top players if they are not playing at their best can be defeated by solid,good players as the ones we are talking about,same the other day for Sveta against Vesnina,this kind of upsets were a lot more unusual years ago.That's the reason why I never like to talk if draws are easy or difficult for Sveta for exemple,when I know nowadays every good player can be a danger if she doesn't play correctly.It's not good to underestimate players,never.And I hope this is not what happened the other day to Sveta.


Oh well,less days now to IW ;) :p Do we have to count them officially as we're doing this year?

Wow I've been so busy, I had no idea what was going on in Dubai.
I knew Sveta lost of course...but Dinara and JJ too...WTH
And Nadia didn't even play because of a foot injury :hug:
I'm so ready for Indian Wells.

So true! :hug: And anyway I don't think Dubai is on the calender next year....:tape:

:lol: that's true :haha:

but she had a week in between fed cup weekend and the start of this tourney.Why was she so tired?

yeah that's what I was wondering too-she sometimes plays 2 tournaments without a break so I don't see why there was a problem this time:sad:

oh well I'm looking forward to IW:D hope she does better there:bounce::bounce:
