QR2 vs. Razzano

Iveta really needs to get some wins here with big points coming off next week and R2 at the US Open. I guess her run at the AO and doubles success disguises the fact her singles campaign has been quite grim since Melbourne! But she seems to benefit from qualifying (e.g. Montreal last year) so hopefully she can discover some momentum.

No.7 seeds in doubles. Peschke/Srebotnik in the same quarter.

Out of singles but they fought past Niculescu/Peer, 75 in the third set, so hopefully this will raise their morale. I've said this 5535729 times before but they do really have a great chance to make the QF because Mirza/Vesnina aren't exactly firing on all cylinders.

Iveta's dropped down the doubles rankings so a good run here should bring her back towards the top-25 (there isn't that much separating those in the 20-30 range).

Yeah, strange to see her drop from a top 20 fixture to a top 30 players.

Another bad loss in doubles.

Iveta will NOT be part of the Czech Republic Fed Cup team.
Kvitova, Safarova, Hradecka and Peschke will play the final.

I would be shocked to ever see her play again.
Barbora and her have been piss poor in the last few tournaments but that's quite a slap in the face.

That's also worrying for the Olympics.
I can see the Czech Federation sending Hradecka/Peschke and Safarova/Kvitova as the doubles teams.

I'm starting to worry about her Olympics' chances.
She's currently the 7th best ranked Czech and may lose quite a lot of points if she doesn't defend her AO 4R.

Plus with Barbora and Lucie ahead, she could scratched entirely.

nevetssllim
Dec 8th, 2011, 08:42 PM
Hradecka has quite a lot to defend too, as does Barbora and Iveta probably has the least amount of points to defend from Feb until Roland Garros. I'm not sure Klara is eligible due to lack of Fed Cup commitments.

How many players can be named on the team? Is it six?

BTW I finally saw her match against Kirilenko at the AO and she was AMAZING! :worship: She probably played better than she did against Jankovic in 2010.

Jan 5th, 2012, 04:44 PM
I very much doubt their heart was in that doubles match (I was surprised they even entered tbh) considering the Sydney qualifying draw was already out.

Iveta put up a solid display against Clijsters and it should at least give a bit of confidence she can win a few matches at the AO (which didn't seem too likely at the tail end of last year...)

Nervenbuendel
Jan 5th, 2012, 04:57 PM
Iveta is focused, concentrated and motivated and feels comfortable right now - a combination which is perfect and not the average rule in her former seasons. The singles matches showed some strategical cleverness, esthetical perfection and a good condition. Australia always has been a good place for her, so the prospects are fine. I feel very positive about the crowded czech run for the Olympics. A good time for fellow fans, and most of all a even better time for Iveta.

Benesova/Melzer d. Llaogstera Vives/Marach 61 76

Congrats. :)

I thought Iveta played well against Azarenka. She was hitting her groundstrokes with superb timing, especially at the end of the second set and was hitting some really flashy winners. Just a shame she made quite a few silly UEs when she had Azarenka on the back-foot and ready to be put away which probably cost her a few games.

That's her main problem. If she only finish 25% more rallies, she would be a lock in the top 30.

The Open is over, over for a while.

Mirza/Bhupathi def. Melzer/Benesova 3:6, 6:4, 12:10

Iveta and Jürgen had one matchpoint, but that's the way it goes. Nevertheless the Slam was very joyful in terms of prize-money and points ... there was the chance to achieve even more. It's also a mental thing as we all know she needs to step out of the shade and change some things in order to reach the top 30, but there is a choice.

On forehand down the line, Venus Williams wins 6-4, 6-3 over Iveta Benesova. Wasn't always easy or pretty, but ended convincingly.
Early on, Iveta Benesova's strategy seems to be hitting the ball high and soft. Not working. Venus teeing off for forehand winners.
But then Benesova gets a few longer rallies going and breaks Venus to open the match. So who knows.
Iveta Benesova's drop shot has worked every time. Making Venus run all over the court.
