Poor Vika. Hope she gets well soon.

I hope that she'd put some serious consideration into this. I mean, I know I say all the time how she has such bad luck and I still agree. I mean, there are many players who maybe don't have great fitness but who don't manage to get injured as much as she does. I don't understand why it seems that every possible injury in every possible way has happened to her this year and that must truly be some true tennis-gods hating going on there.

However, at some point, we do have to question her training methods and thus the job done by her trainer. In other words, there must be something concrete that can be addressed for her fitness to improve.

I wonder when we'll get word about if she's gonna shut it down for the rest of the season or not.

Igor_Biscan
Oct 5th, 2010, 03:12 PM
Yeah there must be something, part of it is just bad luck (blisters and then concussion in consecutive tournaments :lol:) but I wonder if it's either a fitness regime or something technical about her shots which might be causing the leg injuries. If there is a problem I'd rather it was the first thing because that shouldn't be too hard to change. I'm sure she'll look at it in the offseason (which might be right now :sad:)

So she's very likely to be first alt for Doha? And that's assuming no one else pulls out. I can see her calling it quits for the rest of the season actually, the injury must have been pretty bad to pull out when a set up.

Break My Rapture
Oct 5th, 2010, 03:59 PM
Oh god not again.... :o :sobbing: Poor girl is so unlucky. :hug:

Well it'b be foolish to start this whole cycle of playing tournaments carrying an injury again so she better pull out of Osaka. Well first alt is not so bad, she might still have a chance to play. But knowing Vika's luck this might be the first year in a while when no one pulls out. :rolleyes:

allrounder
Oct 5th, 2010, 04:11 PM
She definitely could do with a new fitness trainer IMO. This new regime that's gone from her old one of building strength to concentrating more on stamina in her coaches words has just left her far too injury prone. she'd only retired 4 or 5 times in her whole career before this year i think so something is definitely wrong because it isn't as if she's overplayed or is even aggravating the same injury over and over again. I just hope she doesn't show up in Osaka and Moscow just to retire and fulfil her commitments to receive the top 10 bonus at the end of the year, but it wouldn't surprise me if she did and i wouldn't really blame her :shrug: Another thing to consider is she seems very close to her coaching team so would she really consider sacking any of them even if its for the best?

Also to add insult to injury (pardon the pun) Vesnina beats Sharapova - which i'm happy about as a Lena V fan but it's about the first time in what seems like an eternity that Vika's section has collapsed around her in a big tournament which would have given her a cakewalk to the SF's :sad:

hurricanejeanne
Oct 5th, 2010, 06:13 PM
I think she needs to go a step further in not only getting a new fitness coach but a new coach as well. If it's something that she was playing really well and then came down on her leg wrong and got the strain then I can deal with this. But she's retired in more matches this year than she has in her entire career it feels and it's so beyond frustrating. And I feel like the big problem is her entire coaching staff.I don't think she's training right for her body type, it seems whatever program she's doing is just making her body weak and it's breaking down in matches. I really think that her staff is over training her. And that needs to stop before she gets a very serious injury, and I do think she's developing a chronic thigh issue now too.

I hope she doesn't play next week, in all actuality I wouldn't mind if she calls it a season. This year, that started so promising, has turned to crap. Outside of winning Stanford the second half of her season has been atrocious. Obviously, something is wrong with whatever she's doing off court and it's hurting her terribly on court. I just hope that she's able to see that and not just brush this off again as "bad luck".

I'm not sure Vika needs a new coach. A new fitness trainer? Yes.

Vika has had a pretty solid year. She is #10, won Stanford, and made the final of Dubai and Eastbourne. Her only problem was really injuries.

She has some lingering problems (if I remember correctly) around IW/Miami time, clay season was full of retirements, she shouldn't have played in the French because she was clearly still injured, had an OK grass season with only a weird loss to Kvitova (which in the grand scheme of things wasn't all that weird), had a great US hardcourt season until the USO when she had the concussion, had a strong showing in Tokyo, and retired in Beijing.

So when she is playing, she is playing pretty well. The retirements and injuries are what is killing her. There is only so much a coach can do. The blame for Vika's "disappointing" year, in my opinion, falls on the trainer and Vika herself.

Hopefully she is OK to play in Moscow/Osaka. I'd probably rather see her play in Bali at this point.

No, the next qualified player (Kaia Kanepi) would get knocked out.

The wildcards are very dumb. To not let Alisa or Kaia play (who are both in good form) so that Ana/Daniela can play is beyond me. Just plain unfair really.

But no.. nothing is actually decided until the last international tournament is over. :)

Hopefully she is OK to play in Moscow/Osaka. I'd probably rather see her play in Bali at this point.

I guess what's the most frustrating is if she had just taken two-three weeks off in the clay season when she initially got hurt she would have been okay to play the French and would have match toughness for Eastbourne and Wimbledon. It's just incredibly difficult for her to establish and maintain any sort of form with her getting hurt every two or three events.

It's a given that she isn't being instructed in her training properly, and needs a new physical trainer. My issue with her coach is that he should, as a coach, be able to tell her when she is hurt that she shouldn't play even if that results in a fine or a zero on her ranking. If her coach is doing that and Vika is still going out there and playing and retiring matches, then yes it's her fault but I have a hard time believing she's that stubborn. Her health is more important in the long run of her career.

I guess all we can do is wait and see and hope for the best. :shrug:

That's what I'm worried about. If she's healed and totally healed to play then it's okay but with what's gone on this entire season is that she's like 90% healed, goes and plays only to reaggrivate the injury. And it would totally be her luck to drop out of the top ten right after getting back in.

It seems Vika is skipping Osaka from what she's saying on twitter about going home to recover and hoping to be back for the last tournament (which I assume she means Kremlin Cup). We really need Vera to beat Li Na in the SF's otherwise Vika's stay in the top 10 is going to be a brief one if she doesn't get decent points in Moscow before her Doha points come off.

Na isn't playing Moscow as far as i know unless she's been given a late WC, Beijing was her last scheduled tournament the last i heard :confused: So Vika would only need to win one more match to get back into 10th in the race if Na doesn't play again. She's currently the 4th seed after all the withdrawals there too. With nothing on the line now that the 8 Doha players have been decided it wouldn't surprise me if she withdrew unless she needs to play to get her year end bonus by fulfilling her commitment tournaments. I'd like to see her finish her year with a good showing in Moscow though because with its field its definitely an event she can win and it's what is the closest she has to a home tournament.

Definately agree here. Especially with the questions surrounding Serena and Kim's injuries, she has to get to ALT 1.

No, her 16th best result in the YEC race after Beijing is 70 points and Li's is 60 points.

I was just reading Vika's blog from ECM Prague Sunday May 12, 2007 on the SEWTA website and here's what she already said on hip injury :

The thing about straining your hip is that it can be a dangerous injury. It could take a long time to heal if it gets worse - like six to eight weeks - which isn't something I would be able to handle, especially with the French Open coming up. I had to pull out of Fès next week but like I said I need to let it heal right away. I'm going to go back to Belarus now and have it checked and treated and then I'll go to Portugal when it's better to train with my coach before the French.
In that match Vika was 3-6 3-1 up when she got hurt then 5-2 up and 5-4 before she abandoned... this seems to be recurrent... :lol: anyways in that match she also got hurt in some similar weird conditions as Beijing... from her words needless to say that her 2010 season would've been over if never this had been really serious.

:hug: I wouldn't worry too much about it. Even if I prefer for her to shut it down the rest of the year just to avoid another freak injury, I didn't get the impression that the last injury was too serious.

I bet when she's home she gets too busy catching up with people that twitter/other social media kinda just automatically takes a back seat. :)

If Vika finishes the season 11th she can play Brisbane. It's only 1 of the year end top 10 that can play it. I suppose that'l be 1 good thing to come out of missing out on getting to Doha as a RR player if Li gets in ahead of her :lol:

Serena for now is the most enigmatic and no one knows when she announces her trip to Doha or not.

I guess we couldn't have asked for a more exciting ending to a season than ONE tournament to try and gut it out and get into the YEC. Also, it's kind of a head-to-head competition as well with her against Na being the storyline.

Pretty tough first round in doubles considering Vika and Kiri were seeded 4th, against Alisa and Ekaterina.

Interesting to see that Vika's and Kiri's surnames finish with the same letters when written in Cyrillic. I guess enka and enko are just different transliterations for the same ending.

I like Anna C anyway, but it now seems there's an extra reason to hope Anna wins. I honestly don't think it's that likely though, given Anna's form this year.

She has qualified but I'm really not satisfied of her level of play today her attitude at the end says it all... at least she knows her match wasn't good... anyways if I was Sam Sumyk the YEC is Tuesday next week I'd keep her focus as much as possible on Moscou because she badly needs competition and to work on her game before she even thinks of doing something in Doha...

The double faults are still a very big issue and I just don't get how you make 10+ DFs serving an average of 80-90 mph ? This is beyond me... anyway I'm really happy she's qualified for Doha but I really want her to either win this tournament or go deeper into it . GL :cheer:

Excellent, well done Vika. Second half of first set was really good. Didn't see much after that but it seemed like she had her usual second set drop in level and usual serve problems. How much did Andi's injury affect her in the third set?

allrounder
Oct 20th, 2010, 02:15 PM
Phew it was a relief she was able to regroup in set 3 because Petkovic was playing exceptionally well for most of that match. Winning the tight first set was probably the key thing and after that she had a lull in the second set when her serve disintegrated and she started making too many errors :help: It'l be interesting to see what will happen in the QF now whether she'l try her hardest or look to get off to Doha ASAP. I kind of hope she does because she'l need a bit of time to adjust and there's not a lot of point risking getting injured in Moscow before the YEC.

Exactly... Vika should simply just pull out of doubles which is completely useless at this point of the year and work her best in the 1/4... I'd like her to leave Moscow on a more positive note because that match had some good but majority was simply negative I'd say...

Moreover it's not really in Vika's attitude to not try her best, she always tries we've seen that many times this year sometimes risking her health so I doubt it will even cross her mind to tank we'll see...

That was a very tricky match. :unsure: As usual Vika gets a red-hot opponent, thankfully she managed to win this one though. But she looked so... rusty. The 2nd serve was awful. :help: Work on the DFs please. I guess the more matches before Doha the better, but hopefully she stays healthy enough. :awww: Well done on surviving, Vika. :bounce:

It was nowhere near as bad a match as some people in the GM are saying - they probably just look no further than the BP stats :rolleyes: In the end both players W/UE numbers were about even :shrug: towards the end of a really hard fought match there's bound to be a lot of errors creeping in and i've certainly seen far worse matches.

Vika did look a bit rusty, her depth on her shots wasn't what it normally is and of course her 2nd serve has you almost expecting a DF every time she's forced to hit one :help: I'd just be happy if she completes 3 matches in Doha and collects the 210 points from 3 losses if the worst comes to the worst after the year she's had with injuries :lol:

TheBoiledEgg
Oct 20th, 2010, 02:46 PM
Exactly... Vika should simply just pull out of doubles which is completely useless at this point of the year and work her best in the 1/4... I'd like her to leave Moscow on a more positive note because that match had some good but majority was simply negative I'd say...

Moreover it's not really in Vika's attitude to not try her best, she always tries we've seen that many times this year sometimes risking her health so I doubt it will even cross her mind to tank we'll see...


The last years I think since 2006 or 2007 (?) the pattern in the YEC always been 1-3-5-7 and 2-4-6-8 I think Vika will be with Vera, Fran and Jelena.

its still drawn out......... i'm hoping for a good draw.
now Vika has to stay 100% for Doha

I'm so happy she qualifed for Doha though I'm scared she'll end up getting hurt/retiring a match there/ect. It would be too fitting after the season she's had for that to happen.

I hope that she plays as well as she can during the remainer of Moscow so she goes to Doha with some confidence.

:lol: To be honest I even prefer Andrea than Alisa... Alisa is really a special case and she's really very very difficult to maneuver around the court... when she plays good she's very feisty... when she plays bad Alisa goes away pretty quickly... I feel a very close match.

They have never faced in the past and this is a new confrontation for Vika... I just hope she does her best whatever the outcome... if she wins the match it'll just be another round to keep improving on her game if not well just couple days rest or training before serious matters.

Vika faced Alisa quite a bit in juniors and had some trouble with her then. :lol:
Their junior record I think is 2-2. Vika won both juniors meetings on hard courts. :)
Their last meeting as juniors was won by Alisa at Roland Garros 2005.
After that, they've only faced each other on the doubles courts.

Oh gosh Martian no one is worshiping no one ! :spit: I just shared what I know about the game which can be contradicted by those who wants as soon as they can argument why...

Listen we'll never agree on Caroline Wozniacki and I know you sincerely don't like me for that... we've severely disagreed in the past and we'll continue to disagree in the future on the Dane but that doesn't prevent me to share thoughts with you on Vika

You seem to appreciate Vika, I appreciate Vika and we all appreciate Vika so there are no problems... outside of Victoria I'm sorry we'll have some very very rare points of agreements on Caro which is your main and big rant hidden under other players. ;) If you have things to share on technique or anything else I'm open minded enough to be able to read and agree or eventually disagree with you...

As for your last phrase I've never read or seen no tennis technique related articles resumed in just 2 phrases you might then be a genius... an unknown genius of how to explain tennis in 2 minutes chronometer in hand. :spit: Martian we were born to disagree with one another even from the nearby past on the Caro player thread we've never agreed... oh well so let it be. :worship:

Exactly what I was thinking, Vika needs these matches in Moscow... I haven't seen her confident so for such a long time now especially on the last couple of points...

It's not like as if Vika played tons of matches this year I think she badly needs competition to get fired up for YEC and Moscow is a perfect tournament for that...

And seriously I wouldn't want to deny Vika's 5th title... :lol: that'll always look great on her statistics shit at the end of the year. :worship:

Vika's performance was much better today, her depth on her shots was much more consistent and she didn't allow Kleybanova to dictate too much and played the key points really well. I was a little worried when she let slip a 3-0 lead in the 2nd set after having a BP for 4-0 on a second serve then went passive for 3 games to allow Kleybanova to get back to 3-3. After that though she responded really well with a love service game and never really looked back. I loved the intensity from both players in the last couple of games when there was some huge hitting and then Vika's huge "come on" after the great FH winner down the line to give her a 5-3 lead sounded Serena-like :lol::unsure: Let's hope Vika can carry on from where she left off in Marbella against MJMS before she got injured :armed:

As for doubles :sad: it was a shame they lost the first set TB 7-3 after having a 3-1 lead :help: but Vika said Dulketta were on fire and had the advantage of being completely fresh as both lost in R1 in singles. 2 SF's and a title in 3 tournaments together is an excellent achievement though for Vikkiri with some good wins against some tough teams and I hope we'l see them playing together again at the AO next year.

should we worry about the little time to rest before the YEC and the little time to get used to the different surface and climate? Moscow = indoor, rather slow, cold climate. Doha = outdoor, rather fast and warm climate

Yessssss Vika:woohoo: Loved how she fought from 4-0 down...no dumb errors and made Mk play. She knew she was pushing at the match points and made the move to the net in the 3rd and got rewarded:bigclap: Good job Vika. Hope she plays very well in Doha too:cheer:
