We can write in here all the stuff that is not Sveta related so that we have something to talk about and chat while Sveta is not playing as now (by the way I miss the excitement of her matchs even if it's usually nerve and suffering) and this way we keep the forum active.I've seen in forums of other players I visit they have that kind of thread.What do you think?


So I want to start this thread,as I didn't know exactly where to fit this message,wishing Mel (meltjuuuh) ,one of the nicest Sveta fans around a

VERY HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! :kiss: :bdaycake: Enjoy your day mel :kiss: have loads of fun and presents :D :wavey:

when was that final played? I know in may it's important day the 9th in Russia,it's the day of victory.Is it possible that the final was played that day? I remember I knew the result of that final being already in Madrid so I never got to watch it.

Ok,Mel,I'm really interested in that Zenit tshirt because I would like to have it ready for Madrid so maybe we can discuss the details by pm or email?

For tickets,I have not checked.Last year I bought them on the same day at ticket office and there were no problems (only problem was the result of Sveta :lol: :tape: ).

This year it's a week earlier so I think first round starts on saturday 30th april.I have asked the first week of may at work but I still don't know if I have free the saturday before.So either I'll be there on 30th april or 1st may (depending if I have to work on saturday or not).

it's the Ribbon of Saint George, it was 9th May she played, and in Russia it is a Victory Day, the capitulation of Nazi Germany to the Soviet Union in the Second World War is marked. People in Russia became to wear them not far ago, decorate cars, etc in that day. It's wikipedia article about them.

((((((((Mel)))))) I am sorry. I will keep your grandma in my thoughts.

Some of you may have heard that my state was attacked by tornadoes last night. A town about 20 miles away was destroyed; 5 people known dead. Friends of my kids lived there, and the house is all damaged but they are OK. We are all right, though frightened, and it's coming back tomorrow :(.

Some neighbors and I stood outside watching a tornado and its debris cloud before it dawned on us to get inside!

Fun living in the most tornado-prone state in the country.

hhhmmm tornadoes always look pretty scary to me we only have really small ones and when we have a big one its like aliens landed thats because it only happens once in 10 years or something.

about my grandma it looks like she will have surgery's cuz all at once could be to dangerous. and she probable has to wait 3 weeks wich I think is crazy and am worried about

Bероника
Apr 26th, 2011, 07:05 PM
Anne,

I had no idea about tornadoes in your state.In last times I try to avoid news because honestly they only depress me.By the way,today it's the sad 25th aniversary of that Chernobyl disaster :sad: Considering what happened in Japan not long ago after earthquake,seems like we have learned nothing in 25 years,we are still exposed to the nuclear danger and this makes me feel very pessimistic :sad: Bcak to tornados,that sounds very scary.Most important is that these friends of your kids are ok but I can certainly understand the shock you have.It's probably of no use but I think you are brave for living there.Be careful,please :kiss:


Mel,
I think of your grandma everyday as I already told you :hug: Just normal you are worried about it.Hope it will work.

Had some troubles too in the last times: first with health,about some 2 months ago or so I started to have pain in my arms and hands all the time.Went to visit some doctors and turned out I have a bit of rheumatism (my mother also has that too,so probably inherited from her).Been having as well a lot of stress because of too much work and doctor put me on some tranquiliser pills that I take now before I go to sleep and I can finally sleep fine again.I feel a lot better since I take them.Then again when things were going a bit better,last week we were robbed at home,fortunately while we all were away,so no one in family was hurt,they frightened a bit the dogs and took some things (like new tv,my lap top...),really not much but most important thing they took away is our calm and safety.This can't be brought back :fiery:.Still trying to stay positive despite it all,working as hard as ever and trying not to think too much about it when I'm at home.At the moment looking forward to next saturday to take the train direction Madrid to watch some tennis and enjoy a bit my off week :)

that's right. that was my idea for the video.
the song was "follow your dreams" by T.I. It's slower than the one on the video i Posted as example but I like it so much and I think it can be a good song to let her know that we will always appreciate her in spite of her not positive period on tournaments and we spur her to go on and never give up!

about the tshirt i don't know if we are allowed to use the SK27 but we can change the font; i'll make another proof soon using your suggetion.

Hi, everyone :kiss::wavey:

As I wrote on FB, I finished my finals for this semester. I'd hoped to get an A in my education law class, but I got the highest B possible! Oh wells, it's still very good and with all that's happened this year, I'm glad to do that well when I expected much worse. The other class is a solid A already. This year is a disaster so far :fiery:.

Mel: I hope your grandmother is doing well and recovering :hug:.

Vero: I know well that feeling when you're robbed. It's a violation, not of body but of home and your own peace of mind. I'm glad you got to go to Madrid, even if Sveta bombed, because maybe that helped you feel better and gave you something to look forward to. I always throw myself into work or school or my own projects when I feel down.

And did I feel down :(. I sank into a depression that I couldn't get back out of, after my brother's death and other things. The doctor gave me an antidepressant and a temporary sleep aide, and like Vero, I think just getting some sleep will be a big help. She said I should feel much better in mood within a few weeks. I hope so.

I hope Sveta straightens out whatever is in her mind and gets on track :help:.

I dislike these Forty Deuce :rolleyes:,they don't seem too fond of Sveta,I only follow them because once every long months,among all the boring posts, they remember Sveta exists and post something about her .

Sveta needs to win to shut all the idiots up,but also for her (and her confidence) and her fans (so that we have something to believe in).But to be so sure a former champion and one of the more talented girls in the game is going to lose her first match in her favourite tournament is :tape: Shows a lot of disrespect for her.Of course she could lose,we know by now she can lose to anyone and has lost to worse players than Magdalena as of recently,but still...

Somebody with a good record needs to do it. Of the three tournament threads I've opened, she's lost her opening round in every single one. :tape:

I don't read Forty Deuce anymore. A couple of years ago, she used to be really funny (she also used to like Sveta, if that means anything for you guys) but now she's just obsessed with Ivanovic, Petkovic, Djokovic, Nadal and Murray and her writing style now is just dull. A shame, because her blog was the only one I found worth reading.

ok,just checked,third match,thanks there are 2 ATP before,I can go voting and then be back home by the time she plays :)

Not going to open RG thread :tape: last time I opened a tournament thread she lost her opening match.

And why did they stop liking Sveta? Because she stopped winning as usually as she did? that's quite lame :tape: My oppinion is that Forty Deuce never liked Sveta, more like liking to laugh at Sveta :tape: you know her being the unconventional character she is,it gives material to a lot of people to laugh at her ways,just like people who go to the circus to laugh at clowns, you have a lot of exemples of this in this same board in GM,in the twitter thread for exemple where people like to make fun of the way she writes,but that is not liking someone nor respecting her,that's using her if you ask me.Whatever,Let's hope Sveta starts winning again,that's all that matters now.

May 21st, 2011, 12:08 PM
No, I think Forty Deuce likes Sveta and back in 2009 when she won Roland Garros she (her name is Courtney) praised Sveta quite a bit. And when Sveta played Fran in Australia earlier this year she was again complimentary about her. She definitely has players that she dislikes: Azarenka, Soderling etc. but I've never got the impression that she hates Sveta. I'm guessing that comment about Rybarikova was a joke.

About GM, the majority of posters like Sveta when she wins matches and behave the opposite when she loses and then there are trolls like justineheninfan, who is just pressed that SK put his fave into retirement and so bashes her whenever he can. Don't take it personally.

I resurrect this thread to say I'm quite happy with this year's Roland Garros winners: Na Li has made history claiming the first GS for China :worship: and Rafa too,has tied the great Bjorn Borg in RG titles won.I have to say over the years I like Na Li more and more,she says she likes Sveta so she can't be bad ;) Also was very nice in Madrid last may when I saw her.

Have to admit last year I didn't even bother to turn tv on when the women's final was being played because the thought of some other players taking the Suzanne Lenglen cup after Sveta was too painful to admit.This year I also didn't dare to watch it but for different reasons:I didn't want to jinx my favourite for the title.

Venus should be on CC despite her current ranking (we all know she's been out for injuries,that's why it's so low),but honestly I can't remember an active player who has won more Wimbledon titles than Venus (can you? I think there isn't any) and they put her on court n.2 only,a complete joke :spit: If they are putting a historical tournament player in not the main court,why would we expect Sveta that has never been past QFs in this tournament? they are probably making her pay for that fact.This schedule is a mess,but it is what it is.Sveta has to defeat Zhang that's all that matters now and keep winning matchs or next year they'll put her playing in the parking lot :o nothing wrong with playing in a parking lot,I used to play "tennis" in a parking lot when I was a teenager,but this is a professional tournament we are talking about and a GS champion and a player who has achieved a lot in her career,more than most of the current tour players,maybe now she is not at the best moment of it but this is not reason to ignore and downgrade her this way :o

Don't know what happened to my post. Agree with many points raised - Wimbledon is my least favourite slam because they are so disrespectful towards the champions like Venus & Sveta and so biased towards their hopeless Brits. They hand out wildcards year after year to players who are clearly not ready for Wimbledon and its embarrassing. From what I asked in GM, Court 12 should have a stream so it shouldn't be too bad. Someone who has brought Sveta luck at Wimbledon should open the thread soon because she's playing in less than a day.

just yesterday I read this on twitter:

draw country breakdown: RUS 16, USA 12, CZE 11, ITA/GBR 7, GER/FRA 6

how is it possible that GBR has more players in draw than Germany or France I thought to myself? :spit: Those random WCs are the answer


I can't remember Sveta having luck at Wimbledon,sorry :lol: it's probably been too long to remember.In last years I only remember disasters against Rodionova,Lisicki and that big choke against Radwanska.Last time she had a decent showing was 2007 and I can't remember who opened that thread,it's been a long time.All I remember is she played remarkably well even in her defeat to Venus and her hair style :hearts:

Jun 19th, 2011, 12:23 PM
Yes me too, 2007 was a really good Wimbledon for her. She was so funny when asking the WS for tips on maintaining her hair and played so good even though she lost against Venus. 2008 wasn't too bad but I hated that she lost to Radwanska at the AO & Wimbledon and past 2 years were just bad.

No,because I bring her bad luck,last time I opened a thread she lost her first match and I want her to at least match her 2010 result :p I also bring her bad luck when I see her live which is making me reconsider watching her again,she never wins a match when I'm on same court,except for doubles :tape:

Mel should open it if she agrees as she brought good luck to Sveta in Rosmalen tournament.

Wimbledon 2007 I remember she played it without having played any warm-up event at all because she was taking care of abdominal injury she suffered at RG in her match vs Ivanovic.She went directly from RG to Wimbledon because of that circumstance but it did seem to work for her,so I guess her results on grass (as elsewhere) depend very much on her motivation of the moment.Probably in 2007 she was high motivated to play well at Wimbledon since at RG she couldn't show all her potential due to that injury.

2008 I would say was average,she did what she had to do until she choked against Radwanska in that match,a player we know she can beat,as she's done it repeatedly over the years.so for me it was big disappointed she lost that match,should have reached QFs at least then.But then 2008 was a special year for her as she had a lot of life important decisions to make like leaving Spain to stablish her back in Russia and I understand her mind was not always fully on court.

Superstition, ritual or just OCD?
Saturday, 25 June 2011
by Sarah Edworthy

Svetlana Kuznetsova asked for the salt in the Player's sandwich bar, but when someone tried to pass it to her directly, she insisted they put it down first. It is a common belief around the world that passing salt from hand to hand is ''bad luck''.

But not really sad about the fact that new players are winning slams.Don't get me wrong,of course I would prefer it was Sveta,but all these players,they have a long way to go if they want to achieve as much as Sveta has already done in her young age.They still have everything to prove,Sveta hasn't,she's been in top 10 and top 5 for such a long time that most players on tour can only dream of,she has 3 slams to her name and many other finals, has beat all the great players from different generations(Serena,Venus,Hingis,Kim,Justine,Amélie ,Dementieva,Safina...) and she has just turned 26.I don't think there's anything to be sad about.Take what Na Li or Schiavone had done at that age and tell me what career would you prefer for Sveta (I know which one I prefer for sure) and at 21 the age of the recent Wimbledon champ,Sveta had already won a slam 2 years before and was a top 10 for a long time.I don't feel sad about it.If only,it makes me appreciate all that Sveta has achieved a lot more because it helps to put her achievements in perspective to what it has take to some of the other players to get there.

As for Sveta it's onvious something is preventing her to perform at her level in last couple of years:be it lack of motivation,different physical problems,or a personal thing.There's not much we can do about it except hoping she'll find someday the needed confidence and the right path again.


And honestly I'm quite happy that the WTA tour has became such an open field,it's a lot more interesting than ATP these days.You get unpredictable results and winners on WTA side,while in ATP only the same ones getting to finals and semifinals over and over again :zzz: thanks this year we had a different one in Tsonga :worship: the rest is quite boring and predictable.It's good that on WTA tour more and more players have their chance.I personally loved seeing Na LI grab the Roland Garros trophy and I'm happy for Petra too although I was rooting for Masha in the final.She showed nerves of steel and was the strongest all 2 weeks,very deserved win.Beware of her in the Fed Cup final,and of Peshke too,that just won the doubles trophy as well.The Cezchs are waking up and they could perfectly be the new russians ;)

I must say I wish sveta 1 more GS. and some more tittles but she already did very well. whar sveta needs right now is some motivation or whatever she is missing. I must say this year is still much better then last year so far in almost every tournament she came 1 round better then last year. I hope she has a good year again next year when she turns 27 maybe that will help :P

all I know is that I am proud of her already and just hope she gets a little bit better so she can enjoy it again and can hold on for a few more years.

I just want her to enjoy being on tour,I'm sure last year there were moments it was not the case.Even this year...but then we only see what we see on tv,when you go to live tournaments you can see she enjoys her practise for exemple and it's good to see because on tour,sometimes you really wonder,at least in singles.In doubles she seems more relaxed.

Of course I would enjoy a GS victory again,I'm not stupid :p but I'm also ok if she never wins again.For exemple this year she may not have won a GS tournament or gone beyond QFs,but she defeated Hénin,that was a bigger joy for me that if she had gone,let's say,to a GS final and lost it because we all know how difficult for her to defeat Justine,this counts for me more than many titles.You may say,it's only one match,but this is how I see it.Same as when she defeated Serena in Paris in 09,specially after coming from losing a match where she was leading in Australia some months before against the same player. Next step would be to beat Wozniacki,not because I think Wozniacki is a better player as I don't think it's the case,but I have to admit she's more consistent than Sveta and by defeating her Sveta would prove she has gained some consistency and focus,and this is only a positive thing.

Looks like it's time to open the Toronto thread. The draw is massive, big names every single round. Sveta gets a qualifier in R1, probably Safarova in R2, Schiavone in R3 then Serena/Kim in the QF. I'm not afraid of this draw at all, we all know that its when Sveta plays the big names that she finds motivation. I really hope that Sveta can get to that Serena/Kim encounter.

I saw a bit of McHale a bit against Wozniacki the other day on tv,unimpressed by McHale to be honest,I only got the impression that Wozniacki is facing troubles lately and this girl took advantage of it. I'm not one bit a fan of Wozniacki but anyone can see she's much better than what she currently is showing on court.This said,I can see Sveta losing to McHale again in her current bad form.Honestly the least I care now is the result,I just want to see a bit of enthusiasm in Sveta.I never got that impression at Cincinatti.

I'm quite indifferent to both players,just wanted to point out how the winner of a slam lost early in the next one.It happened to Petra yesterday,but it happened to Na Li at Wimbledon.A lot of things change when you win a Slam,more pressure maybe but also maybe a bit less effort from the player who has already reached one of her dreams,then it is more difficult to focus and get back to day-to-day normal work after living a dream week.I think that is the reason based on the fact that many slam winners are living that.

and yeah,I felt a bit bad for Petra yesterday because it reminded me of 2009 Wimbledon Sveta,except for Sveta it was worse because it was her birthday that day.

I like the Williams a lot,I certainly don't wish them nothing bad.Excluding Sveta,they are 2 of the most entertaining players to watch specially Serena.In fact since she returned to tennis,the tour has become a lot more interesting for me.Since Sveta is always out so early these days,at least there's Serena at the later stages :)

Well,Mel,in one of her interviews she said she would definitely play less second half of the season,targetting only the big events.Maybe she is tired after the first half,it's not been an easy one and has already played more tournaments than she used to play.

Not sure the reason why she decided to skip Tokyo this year.But I think it has to do with the nuclear disaster in Japan.Bear in mind that her body is her work tool,it's perfectly understandable she prefers to keep healthy and not expose her body to it.

I am already happy that she still has 3 more tournaments to play.Remember last season we were done after Beijing? :help: Now that was long.

Svetlana)))
Sep 24th, 2011, 08:59 AM
Agreed. We have reached a stage in Sveta's career where she cannot play too many tournaments and must be wise with which ones she wants to play. Beijing has always been a happy ground for her and she will be extra motivated at Moscow. I say this is the perfect balance for her to end her season. It gives her enough matchplay and a long period of rest/practice to come back very strong in 2012.
