A FM on the Vika forum kindly translated their post-RG doubles final press conference for us :)
Today doubles’ final took place during the gentlemen’s matches, that’s why not so many managed to watch it. So, a Belarussian-Russian duet Viktoria Azarenka and Elena Vesnina versus a Spanish pair Anabel Medina Garrigues and Virginia Ruano Pascual, who is 35 years ols, actually she will be 36 soon and she announced that it is her last tournament, she’s not coming here any more. She has 8 Grand Slams won in doubles and the girls came here to defend the title. Naturally, Viktoria and Lena don’t have the same level of team-work, though they have already tried playing together and they reached the final in Amelia Island, so that is their 19th match together. Moreover, Vika started worrying from the very beginning, throwing her racket, but Lena tried to support her and they finished the match in good mood – they were smiling and having fun. Besides, the girls’ mothers were present at the match and of course they wanted to look good girls
Q: First of all, congratulation to you, girls, because the final of such a tournament is a great event. First of all, who offered playing doubles, who was the initiator?
Lena : I was. Vera Zvonareva was injured in Charleston, and I had no permanent partner, so I offered Vika to play in pair in Rome. So originally we were going to play in Rome only. But when we got to know that Vera wouldn’t be able to play in Rolan Garros, we decided to go on.
Vika: It was me who offered Lena to play together in Madrid, and then in Rolan Garros (laughing).
Q: Vika, you have already won some tournaments, are disappointed by such a final?
Vika: Of course not, this final is an achievement, that’s my second final in doubles and I hope when it’s the third time we will be able to win. That was a great achievement.
Q: Are you and Vika best friends?
Lena: Well yes, we have been communicating for a long time, and have been getting on really good together lately and we have much in common.
Q: Don’t you fear to quarrel during the match and lose you friendship?
Vika: I don’t think you should pay attention to such things, we both played singles and everything was fine.
Lena: I totally agree with Vika, when you play doubles you must support each other, and quarreling is no good. For example, I am get up on the wrong side of the bed since the morning (smiles) and today we both have the same problem (laughing).
Q: By the way, today in the end of the match you seemed to begin playing, at the same time Soderling was playing and the score was 1:4, and after that he won the set and it looked like you could also win, why couldn’t you?
Vika: Well, maybe, but our today’s play wouldn’t let us hope for anything…
Lena: If at 3:0 we could have at least do 3:1, we thought that Anabel could falter at the key moment, but we didn’t manage to brace ourselves properly and finish the games where we had chances.
Q: Congratulations. Are you going to play together at Wimbledon??
V/L: We shall see.

Read my mind ;)
Oh and we lost in Fed Cup 3-2 against Canada :sad:
We were really close :(
We were down 2-0 after day one, but then we won doubles and I won my singles match, but Bennyko lost :sad:
We will play Austria in April to stay in World Group II. Do you want to play?
It's a little hard to understand, but she was asked about her school studies--she is getting her masters in sports psychology and says she is busy all day with either studying, practice or playing matches, but sometimes forgets to do her homework, lol.
So sorry she didn't win yesterday, but it was obvious she has the game to win those kinds of matches. Maybe she can win Charleston.
Apr 11th, 2010, 12:42 PM
Thanks guys. It was a good run Elena :hug:. At least she knows she needs to take charge of the big points against someone like Caro. I'm not sure whether she will do well in Charleston, in my past experience Elena tends not to have good tournaments in a row that often. Maybe she will surprise me.

Here's more of Elena from Ponte Vedra, taken from the match against Goerges on April 8:

They are mkv files, good quality image, I'm using VLC player to play- I turned deinterlace on to remove the combing effect, but it's not really necessary to do it.
My comments so far: I've only watched the first 4 games of set 2 so far (I will eventually bring myself to watch the rest), and I have to say that Elena was playing magnificently. Backhand in particular was outstanding but really she was whipping through the ball with lovely racquet speed, superb depth, power and placement on all her shots. I guess after I watch the rest I'll be able to comment on what happened after that. If she can just figure out how to play like that most of the time, she'll do fine- but as we know, that has proven much harder than it would seem for her. But really, her groundies in particular were amazing.

I agree she has been in awesome form. I would drool if Anna had her serve. What do you think happened to her.

Lena calls Lena... translation needed though :angel:
Ksenia. did it:
- Hello, this is Lena Vesnina
- Hi Lena... Maria from Korolyov just called, not Kirilenko though...
- Well so here is Lena from Moscow.... I just wanted to wish you all the best, you were always an example for me both on and off the court. Be happy, healthy and and I am sure you new life will me as interesting as your tennis life was. I will miss you.
- Well let's not say "goodbye", thank you Lena. I'll root for you now., good luck next year. I think I'll see you soon.
- When did you make this decision, it was quite unexpected...
- Unexpected? You know how old I am... I decided at the beginning of the year, sorry I didn't tell you - we didn't play this season, maybe some draw put me against you I'd tell you so you'd be kinder to me. Thanks for calling.
- Thank you.
