View Full Version : Sveta's schedule for 2010

Nov 28th, 2009, 08:25 PM
According to her official site,this is Sveta's schedule for the first part of the season:

-Australian Open
-Indian Wells
-Roland Garros


So basically it's the same as this year,I think.

jeej stuttgart is in it that woulde be great she has a lot to defend there but you never know with tennis players

Nov 29th, 2009, 12:22 PM
I was hoping she might play a MM in 2010 to sorta get the ball rolling or increase her confidence. Oh wells, hope 2010 is as fruitfull as this year!

Dec 17th, 2009, 10:20 PM
It is understood French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova and Denmark's US Open runner-up Caroline Wozniaki are uncommitted for the first week of the 2010 season and have been asked to play Brisbane.


I would love to see la diosa playing earlier,but I'm not sure it's a good desicion to play 4 straight weeks of tennis and I really want her in the second week of Melbourne.Sydney tournament is enough to prepare AO.

Dec 18th, 2009, 02:23 PM
Hmm maybe i need to do some citytripping to Madrid :p

Dec 20th, 2009, 04:22 PM
you want to come to Madrid,Dorien? :D

Dec 20th, 2009, 04:32 PM
Well i want but i cannot plan something because i have no job, so maybe next year ;)

Dec 22nd, 2009, 01:41 PM
Hi folks, this might be old news, but I'll post it just in case. Sveta has been training in Dubai, however, I think she'll be spending the holidays (well, part of them) at home.

Dec 24th, 2009, 08:00 AM
Thanks for the news,Mary.I didn't know it.
It makes sense because the weather conditions in Dubai are more similar to what she'll find in Australia than Moscow.

Yeah,in her blog she mentioned she'd be back to Moscow to receive the new year.

her schedule for second part of the season is unknown at this point but we already know she has entered San Diego,early august

Stosur will join a strong field at the 2010 Mercury Insurance Open which already includes Russians Dinara Safina, Nadia Petrova and Svetlana Kuznetsova as well as Serbia’s Ana Ivanovic and Daniela Hantuchova of Slovakia. Former two-time tournament champion Lindsay Davenport has also accepted a wild card into the Mercury Insurance Open doubles competition, where she will partner fellow American Liezel Huber.http://tennisnow.com/News/Samantha-Stosur-Commits-To-San-Diego.aspx

I think Sveta normally has a big break after Wimbledon, usually about a month or so before heading to the States for the hardcourt season. Personally, I miss her too much during this time and it's way too long to go without seeing her play a tournament. But a good summer break in Moscow does sound nice ;)

Jul 5th, 2010, 08:39 PM
Well according to The Boiled Egg:

only player missing from top 40 is #37 BacsinszkySo Sveta will play Cincinatti, USA - August 9 - 15 (http://www.tennisforum.com/forumdisplay.php?f=1374)


At least when she plays again,she plays some tournaments in a row.Hopefully she'll also play Canada and New Haven.

Jul 7th, 2010, 08:25 PM
Sveta is playing Rogers Cup :)


Jul 7th, 2010, 08:31 PM
ok thats good news at least we have some date to look forward too and have a count down

Jul 7th, 2010, 08:32 PM
so if I'm not wrong her summer schedule so far is:

-San Diego
-Rogers Cup

Jul 7th, 2010, 08:37 PM
well I know them better under the names

new haven
and then us open

and she is on the list of san diego did she play that last year I dont remember

Jul 9th, 2010, 12:43 AM
no she was in list but remove her name cuz injured
that s the reason why she didn't particpate brisbane .She didn't respect rule WTA cuz she gave up san diego.
but I m not sure if i have understand rightand she is on the list of san diego did she play that last year I dont remember

Jul 10th, 2010, 12:48 AM
Yep kkuzzyfan, that's right. She pulled out of the Los Angeles Open (as it was last year, now San Diego) because of foot injury she picked up during training. But it's some stupid WTA rule and it was the only reason Sveta didn't play Brisbane this year after Safina pulled out of the event in January leaving a gap for another Top 10 player (remember when Sveta was still in the Top 10? :sad:).

And Sveta practically begged the WTA boss to let her play. Hopefully the same problem won't arise again early next year if she decides to play here (I wanna see her play live, dammit!) :bounce:

Aug 5th, 2010, 09:09 PM
I most be alone, since i like the rule where only one top ten player can be in international tournament.

I most be alone, since i like the rule where only one top ten player can be in international tournament.

I guess the rule has its merits, like allowing a more even spread of top players around smaller tournaments and this helps to promote the sport and gives the lower-ranked players a bigger chance to win a title. But having maybe two top 10 players would be nice. So I think a little tweaking of the rule might be better in my view ;)

I don't think it's been mentioned here earlier, but the WTA sneakily released their 2011 Calendar a couple of weeks ago. It's still only August, so they must really like planning ahead :D Plus I believe that at this time of year a lot of the tour players are already submitting their playing schedules for the first part of the 2011 season so I thought it would be interesting for us to take a look and imagine what Sveta's 2011 schedule might look like. I made a quick comparison between the two seasons and found a few changes so I thought I would write them here. Unfortunately, the calendar isn't as detailed as I would have liked (no prizemoney or main draw start/finish days) so hopefully they will release a more comprehensive updated version later on this year.

If you haven't seen the new 2011 WTA Calendar yet, you can get it from their website at http://www.wtatour.com or download it (.pdf) from my site at: http://froggysveta.tripod.com/calendar2011.pdf

Here's some of the interesting things I found:

* They have a new label called "Premier 5" tournaments which include the current $2,000,000 prizemoney events in Dubai, Rome, Toronto, Cincinnati and Tokyo. They seem to be on a tier just below the Premier Mandatory events in importance and prizemoney but, most likely, are not compulsory events.
* The first round of Fed Cup 2011 is on the weekend of 5th-6th February wedged between the Australian Open (17-30 Jan) and the Open GDF Suez in Paris (week of 7 Feb). Given that Sveta never plays the GDF Suez Open this gives her a couple of weeks until the start of the Dubai Tennis Champs (week of 14 Feb), so she may be called upon for Fed Cup duties again, depending of course on her form, fitness, injuries, other player availability, etc. From memory Russia faces France in Russia in the first round. So the travel schedule will be better and we might get lucky and see her playing for Mother Russia early in the year.
* Because the WTA Championships will move from Doha to Istanbul in 2011, Qatar has its own women's tournament again with the new Qatar Ladies Open (week of 21 Feb). Great news for the tennis-loving sheiks of Doha.
* The Italian Open and Mutua Madrileña Madrid Open will swap weeks; Madrid coming first (week of 2 May) followed immediately by the Italian Open (week of 9 May).
* The e-Boks Danish Open (week of 6 Jun) in Copenhagen has moved into that tricky little transition period between the French Open and Wimbledon so presumably it will be converted from hardcourts into a grasscourt event. That should keep the Danish groundsmen busy.
* The ECM Prague Open is gone, replaced by the Nürnberger Gastein Ladies tournament (week of 11 Jul) in Bad Gastein which gets bumped up to commence a week earlier in 2011.
* There is a new International level tournament in Elkridge, Maryland called the Troy Park Women's Tennis Championship (week of 25 Jul). In fact it will be the only International level hardcourt tournament in the USA in the lead-up to the US Open. All the rest are either Premier or Premier 5 events.
* The Istanbul Cup has disappeared because the city will play host to the season-ending WTA Tour Championships for the next three years (2011-2013). The WTA don't want to give them too much of a good thing.
* The Rogers Cup (week of 8 Aug) will return to Toronto - the city currently hosting the ATP's version of the event - while the men will travel to Montréal in 2011.
* The Tashkent Open and Guangzhou Intl Women's Open swap weeks in 2011 with Tashkent becoming one of first events after the US Open (week of 12 Sep) followed by Guangzhou (week of 19 Sep).

The rest of the calendar is pretty much the same and many of the changes above won't impact on Sveta's schedule too much because she mostly only plays in the Premier events. Of course if anyone with eagle eyes finds any more changes, please add them to the list! As always, the calendar is tentative and subject to last-minute changes so it's best used as a guide. I'll watch out for any new calendar updates and post them here.

It's always fun to get a glimpse into the future :yeah:

Is Sveta still playing New Haven? If she does well in Montreal, >QF she should pull out of New Haven and prepare for the USO

Aug 14th, 2010, 02:03 PM
Is Moscow still played the week before of YEC next year?

Aug 16th, 2010, 03:05 AM

At the moment she's not on their player entry list but, like last year, if she goes out early in Montreal and feels underdone I think she may ask for a late entry/wildcard into New Haven. Last year she made it to the QFs at the Pilot Penn so it's a useful little tournament for US Open tune-ups. So we'll have to wait and see how the Rogers Cup pans out for her. :)

Aug 16th, 2010, 03:09 AM
Is Moscow still played the week before of YEC next year?

It sure is, Vero. Kremlin Cup: 17th-23rd October; SE Champs: 24th October start. So if Sveta can climb back up into the top 8 by the end of next year, she may be forced to bypass Moscow for Istanbul. At least this year she'll most likely play the Kremlin Cup which she (and all the other Russian girls) loves so much :yeah:

Aug 22nd, 2010, 06:39 PM
according to this thread,Sveta playing Toray Pan Pacific Open


Nobig surprise,I know :p but since her official site doesn't have her full schedule,I post every little news concerning it in this thread.

Aug 22nd, 2010, 07:07 PM
I guess Sveta has to play some Asian tournaments because of her sponsor. So I'm not really surprised

Sep 11th, 2010, 05:14 PM
Sveta's schedule (unless she decides to add something in between ) looks like that:

Tokyo: since 26th September
Beijing: since 2nd October
Kremlin Cup: since 18th October

I'm so scared of Beijing :help:

Sep 12th, 2010, 10:00 AM
Me too, imagine if she does really badly, its 1000 points gone. I usually have very good feelings about Miami, RG, USO and Beijing but somehow this year nothing is good. I hope she miraculously bursts back into form.

Sep 12th, 2010, 03:29 PM
Well,I expect an early exit from Beijing,I've learned the lesson of expecting too much by now.

After this,no more pressure on her and she can say goodbye to this awful 2010 by playing and finding some joy at the home tournament.
