Thanks,Diogenovna! :D

Best of luck,Sveta!!! With you more than ever :kiss:

My concern is that situation with the russian captain takes away her concentration :sad:

What result do you expect from her in Melbourne? I would be already happy with QFs again,but it's real enigma this time because with only one tournament before,we can't really know.I hope she's already there training very hard.

Fellow Australian Anastasia Rodionova will have a tough assignment in the first round against reigning French Open champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.

awful draw :tape: I hate whoever did it :sobbing:

Not only are all my faves in the same zone,if Sveta gets to 4th there's this belgian waiting again :help: and just like in Cincinatti,she comes into the tournament short of form,too many things I don't like.She better play the doubles too.

Oh well,things are like they are.Rodionova to start can already be hard.Sveta,please be ready and best of luck :kiss:

Sveta's quarter:

(5) Elena Dementieva v Vera Dushevina
Kirsten Flipkens v Justine Henin
Sorana Cirstea v Olivia Rogowska
Jelena Dokic v Alisa Kleybanova (27)

(18) Virgine Razzano v Ekaterina Makarova
Klara Zakopalova v Sara Errani
Q v Alexandra Dulgheru
Anna Chakvetadze v Flavia Pennetta (12)

(15) Kim Clijsters v Q
Sesil Karatantcheva v Tamarine Tanasugarn

Jan 15th, 2010, 09:11 AM
^ That is really exciting!

I really hope Sveta can make it deep here. A title run would be close to perfect. She could potentially defeat 4-multiple slam champs+former world number 1s all in a row. Clijsters-Henin-Sharapova-Serena/Venus. I could totally see that happening, she just needs to click into USO04 or Miami06 form. Then again, Sveta being Sveta, i wouldn't be surprised to see her crashing out at r1,2 or 3

Sveta's angelic-like ability to get along well with every other girl on the tour is legendary; but I can safely say that I did not expect this doubles partnership :)

Who knew that she was friendly enough with Vika Azarenka to voluntarily play doubles with her? I'm really looking forward to seeing this and for the first time I will watch a Vika match with the sound turned up :lol:

Welcome :wavey: but be ready for a lot of ups and downs :crazy:

Hi Everybody I think last year she played only sydney before AO and she had an injury too.


Yes Vero it's the same opponent than last year Good luck svetlana

yes,same opponent and same round,I just checked.Last year Rodionova already caused problems to Sveta and she needed 3 sets to advance so there are not going to be any easy match in Melbourne for her.

I find it also a hard draw...
Even Pavly in good form can be hard for Sveta, if you look to last week.
Hopefully things are going better next week ;)

The thing that makes me positive about that possible match-up in second is that Nastya is not playing particularly brilliant either (she didn't get past qualies in Sydney) and that Sveta has a good head-to-head against most of the other russian players and this includes the youngsters.That's what makes Nastya the more difficult,the younger the players are the hungrier for victory they are.

On Azarenkas twitter she says she is playing doubles with kuznetsova!!!

wow,excellent news :bounce: This really makes me happy even if I'm not too fond of Vika,but Sveta needs doubles and the more practise the better + the only time they played together it looked promising,they were only unlucky to draw the best team in the world for their first time together,but they were close to defeating them.With a better draw in Melbourne,they could make some damage.

Thought I'd like to share this read:

Kuznetsova hoping to peak at right time in Australia
REUTERS, 13 January 2010, 09:59am IST

SYDNEY: Svetlana Kuznetsova will go into this year's Australian Open out of shape, out of form and without enough match practice.

And that is just the way the Russian likes it.

Unlike most of her rivals, Kuznetsova prefers to go into tournaments slightly undercooked, hoping to build her fitness and confidence as she progresses through the event.

If everything goes according to plan, the 24-year-old expects to peak in the final rounds just as her opponents are starting to melt under the blazing Australian sun.

It is a risky strategy with obvious dangers and one that has failed her in the past, at least in Australia.

In eight previous appearances at Melbourne Park, Kuznetsova has only made it past the fourth round on two occasions, in 2005 and again last year.

The world number three, however, maintains her seemingly flawed master plan is still the best approach for her and she remains at her most dangerous when least expected.

There is some evidence to support her argument. She won the U.S. Open as a teenager in 2004 after having never made it past the quarter-finals of any Grand Slam, then waited another five years before winning a second major, at last year's French Open.

"I don't like to come to Grand Slams in my best shape. This is what I hate," she told reporters at the Sydney International.

"If you think you're playing great and you're confident ... matches get complicated and you get frustrated, and this doesn't work for me.

"I like more to get into shape during the tournament."

As a two-time Grand Slam champion, Kuznetsova knows her days of sliding through the draw unnoticed are gone and she will be regarded as a serious contender regardless of her form.

An all-round player with a big serve and a heavy forehand, she also made the finals at the French Open in 2006 and the U.S. Open in 2007, and has made the quarter-finals at Wimbledon three times and the Australian Open twice.

Her power game is ideally suited to the synthetic hard courts at Melbourne Park and there were plenty of encouraging signs last year that she could make a real run at the title this month.

In the quarter-finals, she had eventual champion Serena Williams on the ropes when the weather conspired against her.

A once in a century heatwave forced the organisers to halt their match and close the roof at Rod Laver Arena.

The break allowed Williams to recover and, although Kuznetsova served for the match in the second set, the American went on to win in three.

"It's still frustrating to think about it," Kuznetsova said. "I think the closed roof suits her game much more than mine, so I was a little bit unlucky with that one."

The lone consolation for Kuznetsova was that she learnt from her loss in Australia. A few months later when rain interrupted her semi-final in Paris, she was able to find a way to win.

And her early form leading into the Australian Open has been mixed, just as she had hoped. She won her opening match in Sydney against her fellow Russian Alisa Kleybanova but bowed out in the second round to Dominika Cibulkova.

"It's not such a bad thing, it's not something that I'm gonna worry too much about," she said.

"I'm not coming in the best shape, I'm not coming with many matches to play for Melbourne.

"It's gonna depend on how I develop during the tournament (but) if I can manage to construct every match well, I may have a good chance."

It's a little comforting to us Sveta fans, knowing that she's in full control. I really hate the fact that she's slated to play against so many big names and that im not going to be around when she does so! Stupid darn school exchange programme! It's killing me not being able to catch the first week of tennis!

I found this little bit about her opponent:

Rodionova’s first match as an Aussie will be against former compatriot and No.3 seed Svetlana Kuznetsova at Australian Open 2010. The two met in the opening round last year, where Kuznetsova prevailed in three sets.

This year, Rodionova is looking for revenge, and is hoping the local fans can get her over the line.

“The Aussies are the best fans in the world. No matter where you go they are there, they really cheer for you,” she said.

Oh well, this is the last time I'll be posting here before leaving for my school trip from 17-23 to Taiwan. I really really really wish Svetlana all the best in her Australian Open and hope that she will do us all proud. I also have a certain inexplicable feeling when I somehow know Sveta will win way before that match or the tournament. For example, I knew last year's Beijing tournament was hers even before it(you can go dig up that thread and my post), Indian Wells 2008, I just wanted her to meet Sharapova because I knew she'd win way before they met and many more. I have that same feeling for this years AO. I really hope that she can bring out her best tennis and I can come back to some good news. I can't catch the first match(and the first week) unfortunately and wish all Sveta fans the best of luck. I pray that I will get internet there though :) Here's to a great Australian Open

But her record there and her draw(especially Rezai in R3 already) and her complaints(it must really bother her, otherwise she wouldn't complain) make me extremely pessimistic. I will just take one match at a time and wish her the very best for her matches in Down Under. :worship: Please pick up your prime form there, Sveta! :D

I was watching it from my bed,therefore I didn't come to forum to write :p

Sveta made it look so easy :D :worship: Considering the conditions (constant interruptions because of rain,wind that Sveta hates to play with) I'm very happy with it.But this is only the beginning.Road becomes tougher now.I don't think second round will be that easy.

Wednesday's order of play:

Rod Laver Arena
Start at 11:00
Anastasia Pavlyuchenkova(RUS) vs. Svetlana Kuznetsova(RUS)

Finally Sveta is put on a court according to her category,and also a better time of play than last time.


Davai Sveta!!!!!!!! You can win her again.Vamos!!!! :bounce:

Hey all. I've got internet! Was so excited to find out that Sveta won and by such a scoreline. I'll be in Taiwan till Saturday and not sure when I will get access to internet but continue to pray for Sveta. Look forward to good news and hearts to all skfs

It is a great time for me I dont have to wake up early and also dont have to wait to long before sveta starts and we know the time she starts cuz it doesnt depend on how long the match before her lasts.

fnuf7
Jan 19th, 2010, 06:32 PM
If I've worked out the time difference right & the match starts on time then I should be around easily for this match. Easiest times for me are if she's first on in the day session or somewhere in the night session, & I think the later in the night session, the better for me. If she's late on in the day session then I have very little chance of catching the match so I'm pleased she's first on for her next match. :)

Oh just realised who it is Sveta's playing, now officially nervous. :scared: She should be alright but this could be a very tough match indeed if either Sveta has a bit of a rough day or if Pavs gets into a good slip of form. I quite like Pavs actually, think she's got a lot of potential for the next few years, but I will hope she loses convincingly to Sveta today & keeps her potential for later years :D

Bероника
Jan 19th, 2010, 07:27 PM
Ok,I'm very nervous about this match.We all know this is her first real test + to make it more difficult for me I like Nastya too.She's probably my favourite young player,with Aravane as well (how ironic/cruel they are both on Sveta's draw :o ),but I don't like her enough to cheer for her tonight and I'm going to be really disappointed if she wins instead of Sveta.That makes me more nervous than usual.
