Great result, well top 500 looks likely very soon. Hopefully she plays Moscow 25 K. this time it's more important than playing Juniors at the US-Open.

Katya continues her impressive indoor carpet run. :D To have more variety to the tennis game, indoors's better suited to be played mainly on carpet.

Katya is on the alternate list one from bottom at Ortisei. She's had good results on carpet. Unfortunately the higher you're ranked the better it is. Unluckily prev. results on the surface don't matter :o :( Haven't found the names of Bychkova/Vesnina. Shame they aren't at Ortisei.

Couldn't have a worse draw. But well done, next time a luckier draw, Katya's the potential to win a 25 K. There's a chance it'll happen this year.

Katya did very well to reach the semis. Yes, it's always been on the cards E. Baltacha would win. Wished E. Baltacha played Memphis.

Her current ranking's good enough to reach the US-Open Qual last year. Hope a few players withdraw from Wimbly, as it was in the past. Katya's performances are similar to one of Anna Chakvetadze last year. The US-Open Qual are more than on the cards. Keep on progressing, Katya should fancy her chances to finish in the top 200 this year.

Nothing to feel disappointed. Katya didn't lose in straight sets, and proved she can play on grass. Shame Katya didn't play Surbiton, that's one more grass tournament under your belt.

TheBoiledEgg
Jun 30th, 2005, 09:19 PM
Katya really got of to a slow start, didnt win a pt in 1st three games then didnt really try for rest of set, and was really negative in her body language.
Threw her racquet down in 2nd game of match.
fought really hard in 2nd and stayed in touch, served alot better

but when it came to serving it out at 5-4 and 6-5 she choked badly, her FH went :o
she got thru tiebreak JUST, Agnes Df's twice in a row to give Katya 6-3, then Katya FH went again, just got thru TB 8-6

Set 3, started good but once she fell behind, the negativity crept in and constant screaming/swearing at herself.......... went downhill fast just like set 1 :sad:

KV
Jul 6th, 2005, 04:44 PM
Katya made the QF at Wimbly Junors. Think Katya was better off to play Surbiton to get some more grass under her belt. Might have led to a better result vs. Agnes.

Expected loss but still a bit disappointing score. As for next year better schedule, no time to play clay tournaments after RG. As well afraid it's getting the more difficult to make Qual draw. Not on acceptance list is not on the acceptance list, for Patty shouldn't a single special treatment be made. :o Patty had her chances but her last KC win dates ages ago. Patty isn't needed at the KC. :o
