Makarova Catches Fire, Wins Eastbourne


EASTBOURNE, England - Ekaterina Makarova (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E10895,00.html?)'s big breakthrough has come, and at her best tournament too. The young Russian lefty thwarted Victoria Azarenka (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E11289,00.html?)'s dream week with a 76(5) 64 win in the final of Eastbourne - her first career Sony Ericsson WTA Tour title in three career finals.
In Makarova's two previous attempts at the AEGON International (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Tournaments/Info/0,,12781%7E644,00.html), she made the quarterfinals as a qualifier the last two years. As a qualifier again this year she equalled that feat, beating Flavia Pennetta (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E6578,00.html?) and Nadia Petrova (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E6564,00.html?) to do so. But she kept pushing further, reaching the semis with a 64 75 victory over Svetlana Kuznetsova (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E4467,00.html?), then the final with a 76(5) 75 win over Sam Stosur (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E7941,00.html). Her momentum was strong - she didn't even lose a set along the way.
On the other side of the draw, Victoria Azarenka (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E11289,00.html?) was compiling a similar set of results. Having gone 7-8 on the Tour since the Dubai final in February and unseeded here, she recorded four straight set wins - including over seeds Agnieszka Radwanska (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E11530,00.html?), Kim Clijsters (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E1583,00.html) and Marion Bartoli (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E1007,00.html?) - to reach the final. Combined with her quarterfinal run at Wimbledon (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Tournaments/Info/0,,12781%7E839,00.html) last year, she came into the final having won eight of her last nine grass court matches.
The final was tight, but one player was able to continue their momentum, and it wasn't the No.15-ranked Azarenka. World No.100 Makarova was sharp, regrouping after blowing a 5-2 lead to take the first set in a tie-break, then getting a break in the fifth game of the second and holding onto it until the end.
"I cannot believe I won the title. I'm thinking I have to play one more match - I don't feel like the tournament is done," Makarova said. "I started well today with no mistakes, but then I got a little nervous, maybe thinking I could win. But then I just threw that from my mind and played every point and it worked."

Makarova is the first qualifier ever to win in Eastbourne, and the first to even reach the final since Vera Dushevina (http://www.sonyericssonwtatour.com/page/Player/Info/0,,12781%7E9944,00.html?) did so in 2005. It was her third career final - she was runner-up at Estoril and Fès last year, both International-level and both on clay, a far cry from this week's Premier-level grass court stop.
Makarova is one of the few players on the Tour with a female coach, former player Evgenia Manyukova: "She was a really good player. She was working with the Russian Federation and I really wanted to work with her because I was enjoying every practice. So this is thanks to her. This is her win too."
Azarenka falls to 3-6 in finals. This was her first career final on grass.

I figure Katya will probably not be able to go far at Wimbledon.
But, Sveta won Eastbourne in 2004 and won the 2004 USO.
Wozniacki won Eastbourne in 2009 and reached the 2009 USO final.
Radwanska won in 2008.

This is a good title for a young player to win.

Just keep playing your normal game.

Katya beat Szavay, now plays Venus, probably on Centre Court in front of the queen.

This upcoming match is about your future.
Stay calm. Play your normal game. Focus.
If you can compete with Venus in this situation, you will be a force at Wimbledon for years.

Its not only trying to win. Play well every point.

So Makarova did actually play. The thing is she phoned early this morning telling she was throwing up and cancelled her 2 practice sessions and organisers assumed she was withdrawing (something that apparently she did not tell on the phone). Arruabarrena was called in, but Makarova came later on and people was like WTF is she doing here?

Yes, she played but I'm afraid she just wanted badly the $2,000 first round money :lol: Lucic was lucky her opponent was not even 50% herself. The Croatian did not actually play bad but Makarova was simply putting the ball back on court at Mirjana's (strong) pace. Even a 12 year old would know that she just had to start lifting the ball and changing the pace against someone like Lucic but Makarova simply didn't try.

Sorry for the misunderstanding :wavey:

Katya was ill and sick all night

There was an interview with Katya on Madrid tournament daily newspaper,the day after she played Sharapova.Here's a bit of translation (it's a bit long):

Article says she changed ballet shoes for rackets 12 years ago.After defeat to Sharapova she said: "now I have to keep working hard to improve as much as I can"."I've always been a very positive person,I believe in tennis you have to be positive".Katya says her favourite players growing up were Anastasia Myskina and Roger Federer and that she has told Roger personally about it.She says before wanting to become a tennis players she wanted to be a ballet dancer,but she started playing tennis at 6 and at 15 she was already playing international tournaments.On how she started playing tennis: "I used to play with some friends and our parents decided to put us on tennis school.There I started practising it in a more serious way.In the end,my friends dropped tennis because they really didn't like it,but I kept playing because I loved it". About what she likes more and least about her job: "What I like more is travelling all around the world.I love this because you know a lot if interesting people and places.But at the same time it's also what I like the least,because you spend a lot of time on planes, you can't see your family and friends...".On what she likes to do in her spare time: " I love reading,watch movies and listen to music.Also I love resting on couch or bed and think,but I try not to think about tennis". About music she likes,she says Rihanna,Snoopdog,David Guetta...loves house and dance music.About her best friends on tour: " I get on well with most of my russian peers.They are very funny and interesting girls.I have a good time with them". Katya then says she doesn't like social networks and is not attracted the least to it.She has Facebook in Russia because at first she thought it was interesting but rarely visits it anymore.She prefers communication face to face,social networks are too cold for her. On the typical question what she would bring with her to desert island: " my tooth brush,no doubt,and probably two of my best friends with me". As for her best moment in her professional life,Katya says when she won Fed Cup representing Russia and this year Australian Open. And finally she is asked to describe herself in 3 words,her answer: " I think I'm the typical russian in the sense that I want to make things perfect.I think I am also a funny and happy person,but I admit at first I'm shy".

Navratilova was asked about Makarova. Martina said she has to get stronger & faster, get more explosive, and she serves too flat. Martina thinks she needs a better slice serve, use more spin on that lefty serve.

miffedmax
May 30th, 2011, 09:08 PM
All of that may be true, I didn't think Ekat played a smart game tactically today. She won points when she mixed up her shots and caught Vika off balance. But there were too many times she tried to go toe-to-toe with the bigger, stronger girl and lost.

I saw in an interview where Ekat mentioned Myskina as one of her favorite influences. She could do to take a few more pages from the Dark Countess's playbook.

But yes, stronger and faster NEVER hurts.

(yeah, I know their the same height, but Vika is bigger.)

May 31st, 2011, 07:07 AM
It does look like that Vika is more muscular and stronger physically but from the player's profile on the AO website it saids that Ekat is 65 kilos, 5 kilos heavier than Vika which is 60 kilos that means she actually has a bigger mass than Vika. I guess if she works more on physique training she'll burn off some extra weight and turn some of them into muscle. This makes her weight lighter so that she can move quicker, as well as stronger in strength.

But sometimes weight is good too if you know how to use it for example Kuznetsova's weight is 73 kilos and it sure helped her quite a bit on her big forehand?

But for some other players weight and height is not a big factor for example Henin is only 57 kilos and 1.68m tall but beats most other heavier and bigger players. So really hard to say.

May 31st, 2011, 12:19 PM
Really? I would have thought the exact opposite from looking at them. Ekat looks more slender and doesn't seem to have as much mass in her arms and shoulders.

Well, shows what I know! :lol:

Anyway, this was a good run and hopefully she'll do well at Wimby and pick up another title or two this summer. When she's on she is just so nice to watch.

I hope Ekat's increased success will mean a little more exposure for her. I mean I know she's not a "Oh, look at me" type of person, but it would be nice to interviews at a more than once-a-decade rate.

Even if Katya loses first round in Eastbourne she only falls to #39. A huge improvement on the #100 she was this time last year.

Will be seeded at Wimbledon and depending on who she draws in R3 could be another lock for a R16.

Things looking good for Katya coming into the US Hard court season. Top 20 should be the goal.

Terrible grass season for Katya. At 6-6 in the 3rd set of round 1 against Mchale, a bunch of unforced errors then a double fault at break point.
She has to play steadier. Awful to give away your serve at 6-6

Not a great loss, but I have alot of respect for McHales game.

Still, top 20 should be the goal for the second half of the year. Top 24 seeding at US Open is possible.
