hey,
i just found Polina has a thread

i think she might be the coolest chick on tour, seriously! I'll try to post in this thread sometimes, because she deserves fans and attention in this thread for her personality

by the way, that's the interview i made with Polina (in case there's still someone who hasn't read it :p) - probably all the typical stuff one would like to know about an undiscovered player (i just didn't ask "how old you were when playing tennis" :p)

http://www.tennisalternative.com/interview-with-polina-pekhova-zawada-2012-rn1848.html

Also, two things more that make me think she's super cute. When I tweeted something to her from my website's account, she replied and we chatted for a bit, and when we met she said very straightforwardly, "I was hoping you'd be a guy" :haha: in the way I was sorry for my gender for the first time ever :haha: I also asked her if she'd like to play tennis with her country's president, like Vika does, and she gave a hilarious and smart answer to it, but it was an off-the-record question anyway :lol:

i'm very much afraid of her match against Ana Vrljic. The Croat looks like someone players don't like facing with her tricky game. She even outsliced Barrois in R2.

Zawada seems like Polina's last tournament of the season. Surely ending on a high note, she also got many fans in Poland after great game vs Kris Pliskova (it wasn't Pliskova tanking, Polina simply won it)

She played her 1st tournament of the year this week-end. She was given a QWC at 50K Versmold, but sadly fell in Q1 to Anna Klasen, 6-7(6) 2-6. :hug:

It's not too bad a scoreline against a decent opponent after such a long lay-off. :shrug: She needs matches to find her way back.

Wonder why she hasn't played in so long though, must be an injury, just hope she's ok now! :)

She has fallen out of Top 1000 (currently #1170 :sobbing:), about time she went back before losing her ranking! :sobbing:
