View Full Version : Vera Zvonareva will bounce back and win Miami 2011

Why do I say that? Firstly, she will be riding on confidence from her win in Doha recently by beating Pushniacki in the final. She displayed terrific tennis in that tournament and will probably bring that over this week. And as we all know, when Vera Zvonareva is at her best, she is unbeatable.

Next, she has a cakewalk draw to the semis, where she could potentially face Clijsters. However, Clijsters is coming back from a 1 month break and will be rusty, losing early just like last year. Hence, Zvonareva is virtually a lock for the final where she would surely win unless Stosur or Pushnetta is on the other side of the net. She also knows what it takes to win this tournament as she has done it before.

So in summary, Zvonareva will be the Indian Wells champion this year. Just give the trophy to her already. You all heard it here first!

She is also my favourite to win it (though not the one I hope for, obviously).


But could you please stop calling her "pushniacki". It's getting really old, and kind of ruins your otherwise good post. Pushnetta doesn't help, either.

A) Indian Wells is not an "lame ass irrelevant" tournament, and if you think so, then your stupidity is beyond reasoning

B) Have any of these people saying Zvonareva is a pusher actually seen her play? Vera whacks to ball pretty damn hard given her stature. Wozniacki who stands at something like 6 foot really just has no excuse for her lack of power, or susceptibility to being blown off the court by players with any ounce of fire power.

Weren't you always supporting and defending Pushniacki in the past? Since when did you become a fan of Zvonareva:eek:? But I do agree with what you said.

Sam Stosur would thrash her any day of the year, she totally owns Vera :shrug:

The only way they can meet here is in the final and we know Sam aint reaching there with her poor form this year, so Bepa will still be winning this.

uh hasnt she won this lame ass irrelevant tournament before?

This lame ass irrelevant comment should be ignored:o

I don't know why everyone is laughing. :shrug: BepaMaria was the only person I saw who correctly predicted the Doha final result.

Never mind, its ok, let them laugh. They will eat their words and go into hiding when Bepa hoists the trophy next Sunday, just like they did when she won Doha.

What are your predictions on Marion injuring or killing someone for a court here?

I have no predictions for that, but lets hope she has become a more civilised woman and will not do such a thing.

I agree Vera will win IW but for NONE of those reasons.

I heard that there is a sandstorm brewing in that part of California at the moment. That means stormin' Bepa will use her superior intelligence and adapt her game to the wild conditions. Being intelligent she knows that Kim will give priority to Miami (faster, more USOpen-like surface) and therefore Vera will storm her way thru the rounds and will most likely face Caro in the final... and then, just as it happened the last two times when the two met under rough conditions, Bepa will handle the situation better and in no time put the squeeze on "maladaptive Caro" and take the title.

But the final is 11 days away. There is no guarantee that the wind will still be there at that time. :shrug:

As others have said wind is a vital factor. Vera's reputation as the best active player in windy conditions is deserved. But we do have no indication of what the conditions will be like in 2 days, 5 days, 10 days time. If it remains windy Vera's chances are every bit as good, perhaps even better than Kim's and Caro's. However if the wind tones down then Kim and Caro are very much the players to beat and Vera drops into the 1st tier chasing pack group with players like Jankovic, Kuznetsova, Li, Stosur and Kvitova.

It's possible, she's certainly one of the favourites. I'm hoping for a Kim/Caroline final with Caroline winning but I wouldn't mind seeing Vera win. What I really want is for most of the seeded players to advance and for some great round of 16/quarter final/semi final matches.

Yes it is.

IW is played in the dry California desert with great conditions for the ball to fly through the air(when not windy).

Miami is played in humid and muggy conditions that slow the ball down and the court there is higher bouncing as well. The conditions in Miami are just heavier which slows the ball down.

So what do you guys think? I think it's gonna happen! Pushniacki will be fatigued after going deep at IW and lose early in Miami. Kim is injured and will not do well here. Stosur, schiavone, Li Na and JJ have been shit lately. Though players like Bartoli, Wickmayer and Peer have been playing well lately, it is not good enough to beat Zvonareva.

All these factors point to her winning in Miami this year. Another plus point is that Zvonareva will have ample rest and be more motivated and determined after her early loss at IW, which will help her through as well.

Hence, I again repeat that Zvonareva will be the sure winner of Miami 2011. Just give the trophy to her already. You all heard it here first!

I'm not picking Vera to win but she has to be one of the favourites. I'm hoping Caroline will be able to get rare back to back wins at Indian Wells and Miami but that's probably not going to happen. We don't know how Kim's shoulder will hold up and the rest of the top ten has been very inconsistent lately. Between the top three Vera is probably in the best position to win here. Besides, Vera already has an Indian Wells trophy so maybe that was a strategic tank to set herself up for an easy win in Miami.;)

And as we all know, when Vera Zvonareva is at her best, she is unbeatable.

:hah:

Zvonareva is virtually a lock for the final where she would surely win unless Stosur or Pushnetta is on the other side of the net.
:yawn: this is getting boring and it's funny how your master has a bad record against this crappy italian pusher :rolleyes:

Look guys, Bepa was just unfortunate to face an inspired Cibulkova today. Serena or Kim would have lost today as well. I believe she will bounce back strongly and win Miami. Just wait and see.

Yes of course who could have foreseen the unexpected inspired play by Cibulkova to derail the sound reasoning of a very persuasive case for Vera to have won Indian Wells? Bravo for you to stand by your rationale in predicting the Miami championship to Vera. However there is one aspect of your original prediction that really doesn’t apply to Miami which makes your prediction now dicey. You said and I quote:

“she has a cakewalk draw to the semis, where she could potentially face Clijsters. However, Clijsters is coming back from a 1 month break and will be rusty, losing early just like last year”

And of course you were right on the money there. Vera did have a cakewalk draw as you cannot be faulted for overlooking a possible upset by the unlikely Cibulkova and Clijsters indeed did not make it to the semis. I would suggest that Vera unfortunately does not seem to have a cakewalk draw to the semis this time around. She has a potential match-up with Marion Bartoli in the 4th round. And you would have to admit Marion is now hot being the finalist at IW and providing Wozniacki her only tough match in the latter's championship run.

And if Vera does get past Marion, the next opponent might be Fran Schiavone, which you would have to concede is not an easy opponent. This is even not to mention the potential third round opponent being Jarmila Groth who on occasion can be as inspired as that pesky Cibulkova. Besides we cannot be sure that Clijsters will lose early this time around especially if she is fully recovered from the injury she suffered at IW.

Mind you if Vera does prevail and gets to the finals then we can give the championship to Vera. She owns the likely opponent Wozniaki based on Doha and ‘10USO. (We can of course ignore Wozniaki victories against Vera as inconsequential.)

All in all though I wouldn’t order the victory champagne just yet.

Hmm, Vera certainly has a very good chance to make the final (she is 6-2 vs. Azarenka and Vera is currently playing much better tennis). If she makes the final she will face either Sharapova or Petkovic. Both very winnable matches.

With Caroline out I wouldn't mind if Vera wins this. A win here would put her back in the race for number one.

True. Though I wouldn't mind any of the other 3 winning.

I see the author of this thread basically amended his original post which was the prediction for win at IW. However the amendments are not congruent with a prediction of a win in Miami after considering the loss at IW. For example Vera surely could not be coming into the Miami tournament brimming with confidence with her victory over Wozniacki at Doha as the unexpected loss to Cibulkova at IW had intervened. She may have had a cakewalk draw at IW but surely her draw in Miami is as tough a test as could be imagined.

At first blush it might be thought of as laziness for the OP to cobble a prediction of a new tournament based on rationale advanced on previous tournament, as opposed to starting a new thread. But I see a more sinister motive. Should Vera indeed prevail here, I imagine that the OP will then suggest his original opinion was on the mark and if it wasn’t for the totally uncharacteristic victory by Cibulkova Vera would have done the double dip of IW and Miami.

Of course if Vera does not prevail perhaps this thread can still be utilized in predicting a win at Vera’s next tournament.

I can see Vera beating Vika, definitely. And Vera would be the heavy favourite against Petkovic. I reckon it would be a toss-up in a Vera/Maria final, though. I'm not just saying that as a Maria fan, but because Vera does struggle against Maria sometimes and their h2h is kinda one-sided, with Vera's wins against Maria being in 2004 and one in 2007.

....I just want to amaze TF with my spot-on predictions :p

A worthwhile goal but my point is that you cannot amaze the TF if you use the same analysis to predict victories. Circumstances change depending on what actually occurs. You were on the right track in explaining the failure of your prediction for IW by pointing out that a Cibulkova upset was totally unforeseen and against all odds. Thus that loss ought not negate your original prognostication. Still for Miami you should have come up with something new if one is to take your predictions seriously and be amazed when Vera does win.

You could have for example mentioned although Vera had a cakewalk draw in IW her draw in Miami was anything but. You could have even uttered a shameless pun by pointing out that Vera would likely meet Bartoli in the fourth round who would have normally been truly a cakewalk but as the IW finalist would test Vera severely. The focus of your prediction for a Vera victory in Miami would be since Vera had a tough draw she was going to hunker down to play some serious tennis and her championship skills would shine through. This time she would be ready for Clijsters because those in the know were aware that Clijsters could be had. Thus with back to back victories against Nos 1 (Woz in Doha and Clijsters in Miami) Vera would be invincible in the final no matter who would get there.

I know you don’t think much of Caro but still your prediction for the Miami victory would be bolstered by suggesting that Caro cannot achieve double victories in IW and Miami. It is a good bet that she will not emerge as a finalist thus making a Vera victory a virtual certainty. That way Petkovic’s victory would have made you look like a genius and your predictions would then have merit. Remember you were right on the money by suggesting that Clijsters would lose early in IW.

Had you predicted a Miami victory along the lines as I suggested your predictions of Vera’s victories could still be taken seriously. You see you could not be expected to foresee that Clijsters would be beaten before she was scheduled to meet Vera. And of course as Azarenka did the deed that player was so pumped up by her victory against whom some in the TF perceive as the true No 1, and so poor Vera had no chance.

The beauty of this rationalization is that it matters not whether Azarenka actually wins or not the final against Sharapova. If she does win then unfortunately Vera met an unbeatable buzz saw. If Azarenka does not win you simply say her bubble burst having beaten the Nos 2 & 3 of the world and of the tournament. In either case the prediction of a Vera victory would still be reasonable and you can confidently predict a Vera victory in her next tourney.

You see you can then state that Vera would be loaded for bear having had two certain victories slip away from her grasp under truly unlucky circumstances. One must pity her opponents as Vera will stomp through for that tournament victory and your wished for amazement of spot on prediction will come true.

Naturally if Vera does not prevail in the next tournament as well there will be a suitable explanation handy and a new prediction can be crafted. I imagine Vera is going to win another tournament somewhere this year so that if you persevere the reward will eventually come.

After the egg of a performance that Caroline laid against Petkovic I am in no position to kick Vera or her fans when they are down. I was the one that bumped this thread, not to mock the original poster but because I thought Vera was going to win. Players winning Indian Wells and Miami back to back is a bit of a rarity so I didn't like Caroline's chances of winning and with Kim's retirement against Bartoli she didn't seem like the obvious winner so Vera was the next logical choice, especially since she would be fairly fresh after losing early at Indian Wells. I would have preferred to see any of the top three win this as it would make the race for number one a bit more interesting but at least one of them has appeared in every big final since Wimbledon so I guess it's nice to see other players get a chance to win.
