Vera was in tears at the end of the 1st set, but kept it together to win 6 straight games in the 2nd set. Then she served for the match at 5-2, but had a mini-choke.

You have to expect Vera to have matches like this from time to time. She just wants to give her fans something to think about :).

Well done Vera, I have to admit I deserted Her at 5-4 and went and had a shower(not a cold one) I was scared to look when I came back!

I dont know VEra didnt look herself today, only her serve is looking good, she was very passive and hardly attacked at all. But at least she toughed it out.

Pav- Why don't you give us some Vera poems?

There are a few Vera poems somewhere back in the GM's

I don't think I could write one today
even at My age She's nearly made me go grey
She can be a right little shit to follow
and makes the pit of Your stomach feel hollow
but then when She fights back and then wins
We forgive Young Bepa all Her sins
first set gone,She gives the racquet a smash
I could feel My hopes start to crash
I thought, She's going to go out to Serna
should have known She's made of something sterner
then the second set it came just so easy
still some tears, just to make the clay go greasy
The third was going all Her way
Vera on top, sliding round on the clay
then She thought "why let My fans settle down?
I'll let it slip, drop My serve, act the clown
let them know if they if they are silly, and follow Me"
never once will their ride,be smooth, flat and free
at least We know when Vera swings Her racquet round
amongst the things We call Her the word boring will not be found!
