Far from easy draw ranking doesn't matter at all. It's more about avoiding the off-day and being able to play on the surface. Needs to be bang on form to make Main Draw on talent Katya is the fav. to make Main Draw (provided Olga makes final or is exhausted after making SF at Tashkent) Hopefully we"ll have a Muscovite 2 Qual round battle. Good luck Katya for her sake just avoid the off-day.

Oct 7th, 2006, 06:05 PM
Played one of her best matches so far this year in front of her homecrowd. Served 12 aces. Katya won 6-1 7-5 :) Has very good chance to make Qualies final round or can go further. Continue Katya :)

"I didn't want to think about winning the set," Bychkova said. "I've seen others get her into the same situation where they have set point against her and I didn't want to think about it, just play each point then see what happens. I didn't play so well against her serve, and my serve was not too good today, but it was a good experience to play against Maria, especially here in Moscow."

Bychkova Upsets Schnyder in 3-Set Roller Coaster
The first upset of the 2007 Open Gaz de France took place yesterday as Russian qualifier Ekaterina Bychkova defeated number six seed Patty Schnyder 3-6 6-4 6-3.

The main court of the Coubertin stadium was mostly quiet when the last match of the day began a little after 8PM. That is why everybody, including, it seemed, the athletes themselves, was startled when, as the players were introduced by official speaker Marc Maury, a group of very vocal Russian fans started yelling and cheering for their favourite player, breaking a relative silence. In theory, Russian player Ekaterina Bychkova, a 21-year-old qualifier ranked 100th, looked like she was going to need all the help and support they could give her as she was about to face Patty Schnyder of Switzerland, the 11th player in the world and a semi-finalist of the 2006 Open Gaz de France. And it actually looked like the Russian magic worked for a while, as the youngest player, who had already had to play three matches to make it to the final draw, did more than just resist the powerful strokes of the left-handed Swiss. Both players were sticking to their baselines, offering an impressive show featuring many long winners that were spectacular enough to keep the spectators whispering in appreciation after several points.

Even though the Russian’s serve was broken by Schnyder, who took a 3-1 lead after 15 minutes of play, Bychkova was giving the impression she could still come back, which is actually what she almost did in the fifth game before eventually letting the Swiss confirm her break. As surprisingly accurate her game appeared to be on some shots, B found herself one or two meters away from the ball too often to hope for a chance to claim that first set, especially after two very discouraging winning dropshots by Schnyder. Yet the qualifier’s arm did not shake when her opponent came close to pocketing the set at 5-2. She coolly held her serve but could not repeat her performance two games later, when the Swiss close the set with a score of 6-3.

Both players chose to receive the advice of their coaches, as the new on-court coaching rule allows them to. Those words of wisdom obviously proved useful for the Russian who, even though both athletes started the second set at the same pace and using the same tactics as they had throughout the previous set, managed to make the difference on key points and lead 4-1, as if she was getting used to the Swiss’ powerful balls and had realized how to deal with them and return them in an even more offensive way. That newfound energy helped her save three break points in the seventh game. Showing how high her confidence was, she even went bold enough to also use a dropshot in the next game, answering Schnyder’s previous ones.

But Schnyder, who was playing her seventh Open Gaz de France, let her experience speak when her opponent served for the set at 5-3. On her second attempt, the Swiss broke Bychkova’s serve and the way the Russian threw her racket when she came to sit right afterwards showed how disappointed she was and what a crucial game that had been. Yet she quickly got over it when she got up, powering to three match points and winning the second, as well as the set, 6-4.

Both coaches cama back to the court on the players’ requests and their influence seemed to be quite similar as, once back on the court, Bychkova scored three consecutive games against a Patty Schnyder who waited a little too long to react and take charge charge but soon came back to a 3-3 tie. The players had taken quick turns scoring consecutive games and no other series of six games had been scored that fast since the beginning of the match. That is when the Russian chose to once again put extra pressure on Schnyder and claim two games in a row. As Bychkova was serving for the match at 5-3, her nerves were about to take the hardest test of her career. She did not flinch though, and even won the match point on an ace after a 1h47 roller-coaster of a match that had seen a qualifier advance to the second round by defeating the number 6 seed

The same could not be said about the No.6-seeded Schnyder, who was beaten by qualifier Ekaterina Bychkova, 36 64 63. Bychkova stayed with Schnyder from the baseline for nearly two hours, grinding it out with solid crosscourts and better play on the big points (she was 4/6 on break points while the Swiss was 3/11).

The win over the No.11-ranked Schnyder was Bychkova's third ever Top 20 win. The Russian's first came against a No.19-ranked Francesca Schiavone at an ITF Circuit event in 2004; her second came at the US Open two years ago, stunning a No.5-ranked Svetlana Kuznetsova, the defending champion, in the first round.

So it's second big Katya's win in terms of ranking

Golovin goes onOn Thursday, Tatiana Golovin, qualified for the quarterfinals of the Open Gaz de France by defeating the Russian Ekaterina Bychkova. The French’s next opponent will be the Belgian Justine Henin.

Wearing an orange outfit yesterday, Tatiana Golovin filled the crowd with enthusiasm. Today, although clad in bright blue, the crow was as lively as the Frenchwoman won her ticket for the quarterfinals of the Open Gaz de France by getting rid of the Russian Ekaterina Bychkova in two sets: 6-4, 6-4.

In spite of the score, victory wasn’t easy. After making a slow start in the match and collecting a love game, « Tati » quickly won her opponent’s serve to comfortably lead 3-1. However the player ranked number 19 in the world fell back 4-3 because of her inconsistent serve. The number 2 French player started doubting. However Golovin didn’t give up. She came back and in the same breath got three set points, finishing off with the second one but only after a fourth double fault.

The match wasn’t over yet. Pushed around at the beginning of the second set, the French player born in Moscow lost her serve for the first time in the match due to a very aggressive Bychkova (3-1). A hefty price to pay for the public’s favourite. Yet Tatiana managed to reap the four following games and took back the lead.

This power display was enough to topple the defeater of the Swiss Patty Schnyder. At bay, Bychkova tried resorting to all incantations possible to get back in the game… in vain. Dominated by Golovin who was playing at another level, the Russian lost 6-4, 6-4 and gave her rival a ticket for the next round.
