Damn :( On to next season get some good results before RG cut-off. Hopefully, she plays GS-Qualies before turning 18.

Katya M. back in action, playing 25 K. in States this week. :) As for Katya get a few results before RG Cut-off, if not then take your big chance to play at least US-Open Qual. What's for sure she hardly can do worse than last year. Good luck Katya.

Jan 16th, 2007, 11:17 PM
Katya won today 60 62 ;) :banana: :D :)

Jan 17th, 2007, 05:52 PM
Great start of the season :bounce:

Jan 19th, 2007, 04:13 PM
Booked pretty comfortable win qualified for QF's. :D

Jan 20th, 2007, 06:49 AM
Katya lost in QF :sad: :( :(

Jan 20th, 2007, 01:38 PM
Nevertheless have a good feeling if Katya M. opts for the American tour. It"ll work out fine. Reached QF's after first american challenger she played not too bad. Can see Katya making the top 200 this year if she opts for the American Tour. Considering Shvedova/Linetskaya/Bardina who owe their ranking mainly to the American tourneys.

Katya in QF's Minsk. On good form could go all the way,:) :D but what a shame Minsk in only a 25 K. For players as Zhenya G./Vesna it's easier to make the Sf's in 50/75 K. than in Minsk. :o

Mar 8th, 2007, 06:43 PM
Katya :yeah: :D
good win today as well ;)

now keep on going :)
Katya only got a bit to defend before RG cut off

Katya vs Sugiyama should be on a TV Court
hope i can see it.

Aug 28th, 2007, 09:16 AM
Welld done Katya :banana::kiss: She has a real chance against Ai, if she attacks her serve anything is possible!! And Dubios beat her the other week so that pretty much says it all! Good luck Katya!

Aug 29th, 2007, 05:57 PM
Katya is up 41 in the third. Very close to round 3.

Aug 29th, 2007, 06:10 PM
Katya was broken at 51 but has 2 mp's at 15-40 with Ai serving
Katya wins 64 46 62. In to round 3.
What a great result!

Aug 29th, 2007, 06:13 PM
Great result, most satisfying Russian player so far at U.S. Open :bounce:

Aug 29th, 2007, 06:15 PM

great serving, angles and all

Aug 29th, 2007, 06:57 PM

Aug 31st, 2007, 12:23 AM
get to see Katya again tomorrow :yeah:

good luck Katya :hug:
just play your game 100% :) :kiss:

Aug 31st, 2007, 12:43 AM
Sometimes playing on a huge court against a top player is not a positive.
Bardina played Kim in Rod Laver Arena, then did nothing.

Katya has to use this as a positive. Focus, and learn from it. And continue to move forward.

Aug 31st, 2007, 01:15 AM
Nice to see Ekaterina in the third round of the 2007 U.S. Open. :) I hope she goes for her shots against Henin and doesn't play nervous tennis because of the occasion.

Aug 31st, 2007, 10:14 AM
I cant wait to see Katya tomorrow!! Good luck, I accually think shes a chance. Henin wont out hit Katya, so the match is on her racquet. Good luck :worship:

Aug 31st, 2007, 05:09 PM
Katya played some okay tennis at the end of the match. Her lefty serve has potential. Her 2 hand backhand is okay.
She has to get steadier and stronger.
That was a good tournament, and she's in position to do something next year.

Katya after her win against Schruff.

Honestly, I was not impressed too much with her game against Schruff, she lacks something special in my opinion. However, against Sugiyama she played very well and went for her shots! I am sure she will continue to improve.

Sep 4th, 2007, 06:52 PM
thanx for the pic :wavey:

we could tell she wasnt good vs Schruff or she wouldnt have lost a set :lol:

She sounds so optimistic in interview SAid she knows how to play vs Meusberger and she knows she has a great chance for next win Said that Agnes was not in her best form and she has not a feeling that it ws too hot as it wsa when she arrived in Melbourne

Jan 15th, 2008, 12:06 PM
I was watching the scoreboard and Katya had a 30 lead and lost 63.

Katya has to work on her serve. She was broken 4 of her first 5 service games

Katya :sad: :( she fought well but in end came up short

Jan 20th, 2008, 02:23 AM
You can't fall behind 16 15.
She has to work on that serve.

Jan 20th, 2008, 02:33 AM
Katya gets US$49,000, which is like a Tier I SF.
Good payday. But she needs to do more work. Her game isn't there yet.
