All are welcome to cheer them on here. :)

2006: just added Yulia, for a fan of hers :kiss:

Mar 21st, 2002, 01:19 AM
Yeah, why not?
Its stupid to start a whole new forum just for one person (like the Kournikova fans did)
And someone on here started up a Bela-Russian cheering thread. Though nobody uses it anymore.

Mar 22nd, 2002, 05:25 AM

BTW, can we also cheer for Iroda Tulyaganova here?? ;)

Mar 22nd, 2002, 12:07 PM
as long as she doesn't mind. It seems that people (especially new generation) from former Soviet republics have to get offended when they are somehow mixed with Russians. Just my opinion.

Mar 22nd, 2002, 12:59 PM
Well, in US we all are just Russians :)

Mar 22nd, 2002, 01:28 PM
true, f2f... rightly or wrongly...:p

Mar 22nd, 2002, 03:02 PM
I don't mind cheering for some of them
especially ones from Belarus.

I also got a soft spot for Irina Selyutina/ Iroda Tulyaganova as well as a few others.

15 yr old Anna Chekvetadze is of Georgian origin and represents Russia.

It all depends on each person's view. But I can say is that Russians view of other states is more tolerant than they have of Russia.

Cara & Irina won the Porto doubles crown 7-6 (6) 6-4

Congrats to Irina on her 3rd doubles title! :D :D :D

Apr 7th, 2002, 11:38 PM
Janie is it true that Iroda had the second fastest first serve on average throughout the whole of 2001? (Behind Venus obviously)
I knew Iroda's serve was fast, but not that fast!!!!!!!!!

Apr 12th, 2002, 08:18 AM
Off course we must cheer for IRODA here. She speaks russian, dreams in russian and deserves every support.
Davai Iroda.

Apr 17th, 2002, 01:17 AM
I wish Iroda a speedy recovery! She has been so thoughtful in telling her fans how she is! GOOD LUCK IRODA!!

And as for Tatiana, I think she doesn't speak Russian (she speaks Ukranian?), but Ukraine WAS once part of the former Soviet Union! Hope she finds her form in her next tourney! :)

Actually, can someone tell me the differential between Russia, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, and Belarus?? Are the people all nice to each other or do they consider themselves seperated as independent countries? Sorry, I don't really know. :)

Apr 17th, 2002, 02:11 AM
JULIAN, I think all the girls from former-Soviet countries would speak (at least basic) Russian.
Obviously Russia, the Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Belarus and the other 11 (I think) former-Soviet countries are seperate (whether they're all completely independent, I'm not so sure about), but I'm from England so I don't know if they actually LIKE each other.

May 5th, 2002, 10:31 PM
Good luck to Iroda against Gala Leon Garcia tomorrow in Berlin :D

May 5th, 2002, 11:01 PM
Good luck to Irina Selyutina/Samantha Reeves in doubles in Warsaw. :D Never seen Irina play but Samantha reminds me of Nastya by talking to herself and the crowd about her play or the situation. Quite entertaining. In fact, Nastya autographed my program right near Samantha's autograph.

Sad for Tatiana Perebiynis :sad:

May 5th, 2002, 11:02 PM
they are basically independent but there is still some Russian influence in these countries.

Tatiana got injured in her match today and has had to withdraw :(

good luck Irina in Warsaw, tough match vs top seed Henrieta Nagyova (queen of Tier IV/V's)

Iroda has to win a match soon, hope its tomorrow :)

May 6th, 2002, 09:55 PM
Iroda wins in spectacular style!!!!!!!:D :cool: :D .
6-4 6-0.
If I'm honest, I rather expected her opponent (Gala Leon Garcia) to do better and put up more of a fight. I don't know if Garcia was injured slightly in the 2nd set or whether Iroda was just too strong.
Hopefully it was the latter:D .

GOOD LUCK IN THE SECOND ROUND!!!!!!!!!:cool: :bounce: :wavey: .

May 6th, 2002, 11:26 PM
Way to go Iroda!!! :bounce:

I hope you continue to win.

Cassius, I hope it is the latter also. :)

May 7th, 2002, 04:11 PM
WOW! Way to dominate a match, Iri!!! Keep it up! :D :D :D

May 7th, 2002, 11:48 PM
Congratulations Irina and Samantha. Keep going and win the title. :D

Iroda, good luck against Eva Dyrberg.

May 9th, 2002, 01:37 AM
GOOD LUCK Iroda against Capriati!!!!!!!!!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce: .
She took Jenny to 3 sets last time, fingers-crossed she can win this one.

May 9th, 2002, 09:51 PM
:sad: :sad: :sad: Iroda lost two and love against Capriati:sad: :sad: :sad: .
I don't know the stats, so I'm not sure if Iroda was rubbish or if Capriati was awesume.
I hope it was the first one, because if Iroda was playing well in this match.......well things don't look good, but if she had a bad day.........well, everyone has a bad day sometime.

May 9th, 2002, 11:16 PM

Congrats to Iroda! Good luck to her in her next match! :)

Tatiana...anyone know her next tourney?? :confused:

May 13th, 2002, 11:04 PM
Congratulations Iroda!!! Hope you continue to win.

Sorry Julian. Not sure.

May 16th, 2002, 12:20 AM
Iroda :sad: :sad: You played hard and tough against a player who is coming back into form and this was bad timing for us... and for her to decide this was the time.:(
I hope you rest up since you and Asa are not going to be playing doubles in Rome.
Rest up and (also get some practice).:D

auntie janie
May 20th, 2002, 07:50 PM
Good luck Iroda in Strasbourg!

First up -- Daniilidou tomorrow. The likeable Eleni has not been faring well at all lately, even worse than Iri, so Iri should win that round.

I would love to see Iroda get to the final here!


May 20th, 2002, 11:24 PM
Good luck Iroda!!! (I like Eleni too but hope Iroda does real well)

May 21st, 2002, 04:56 AM
Good luck today, Iroda. Sorry, I canīt be there watching you. Davai Davai Iroda!

Congrats, Iroda!

Better luck next time, Irina!

Tatiana is in the doubles.

May 29th, 2002, 10:55 PM
Congratulations Iroda!!!! What a trip....my other favs who have been winning have lost already and Iroda who hasn't been doing too great wins her match. :D

Good luck Iroda!!!!

Irina gave Mary Pierce a scare by taking her to 5-7 5-7.

auntie janie
May 30th, 2002, 07:35 PM

May 30th, 2002, 07:43 PM

i guess you better get ready for a new star :)


13yr old Viktoriya Kutusova d. Ashley H and made semis in Astrid Bowl.

TATIANA Perebiynis is playing in Tashkent this week;;
IRODA is in Vienna this week, where she is the #2 seed. Good luck to both!

(IRINA, I don't know where you are!)

Jun 11th, 2002, 01:29 PM
Tatiana won her 1st round match! :) Good luck against Safina/Noorlander...quite possible Safina :( (who I like also)

GOOD LUCK IRODA!!! Time to defend your title!

Jun 11th, 2002, 01:36 PM

Jun 11th, 2002, 11:53 PM
Iroda plays Conchita Martinez tomorrow. :( She can only try her best.

Irina is playing at Birmingham and is teamed with Nannie DeVilliers (sounds like a name that Disney would use in a movie) for doubles.
-- She is playing Rita Grande tomorrow.

auntie janie
Jun 12th, 2002, 12:10 PM
I don't know how I missed that Irina was in Birmingham! The 3 Ladies of this thread must have gotten annoyed at being lumped all together here, so they all scattered in different directions this week to spite us. ;)

In any case, Irina lost to Rita. Good luck to her in her Disney Doubles team! :)

Jun 12th, 2002, 11:20 PM
Congrats Iroda on her win over Conchita today! :)

:wavey: Janie. Honestly, I could not remember which tournament draw I saw Irina's name in. I thought it was Tashkent but when I looked again, I was shocked she was at Birmingham. She played well against Rita.

That is cute name for her doubles. :)

Jun 13th, 2002, 06:19 PM
Tatiana beat Dinara in a very close match- 6-3 4-6 7-6(8-6) !:eek: :bounce: :D

Jun 13th, 2002, 06:32 PM
Great win for Tatiana! I looked at her Junior results just yesterday and can't believe how good she was! I'm very sad for Dinara as I am also a fan of hers, but Tatiana really needed this win. :)

Jun 13th, 2002, 10:27 PM
Wow, that was a close match between Tatiana and Dinara!!!

Good luck tomorrow Iroda!!!

In the Jul/Aug Tennis magazine, they have a section on Wimbledon and one article is called,"Snakes in the Grass" 'Look for one of these dark horses to pull off an upset or two'

One of the four women named was Iroda. About her, it said, "This 20-year-old from Uzbekistan thrives on turf: She won the Wimbledon juniors in 1999 over Krasnoroutskaya and reached the semifinals at 's-Hertogenbosch and the third round of the Wimbledon main draw last year."

auntie janie
Jun 14th, 2002, 01:15 PM
Wow, I had not heard this result! Here's what the WTA site says:

Tatiana Perebiyunis beat Dinara Safina 6-3, 4-6, 7-6 (6). Safina, the 16-year-old sister of men's tennis star Marat Safin, jumped to a 5-2 lead in the third set, but the Perebiyunis broke back in the ninth game.

Safina led 5-2 in the tiebreaker before losing four consecutive points.

Tatiana is really a fighter, isn't she? :)

auntie janie
Jun 14th, 2002, 01:17 PM
PS - Irish -- so who are the other 3 women snakes in the grass???

auntie janie
Jun 14th, 2002, 08:07 PM
Our Tatiana bowed out today, but Our IRODA advanced with a tough 3-set win over Majoli, 7-5 in the 3rd! Can Iroda be finding her form again at last?

Jun 14th, 2002, 10:23 PM
:wavey: Janie

The other three "Snakes in the Grass" are Barbara Schwartz, Lina Krasnoroutskaya, and Tamarine Tanasugarn.

Wow, what an impressive win over Patty Schnyder. I knew it would be a tough one. But unfortunately, she and another fav are on a collision course to possibly play in the final of Vienna.

Jun 16th, 2002, 08:15 PM
CONGRATS TATIANA FOR HER 1ST WTA PRO TITLE! She won dubs in Tashkent with Tatiana Poutchek! :)

Also, congrats Iroda for reaching the final in Vienna! Hopefully she has gotten her groove back! :)

Jun 16th, 2002, 08:54 PM
Congrats to Tatiana and Tatiana :D

Sad for Iroda. She was defending champion and I really thought she was going to give Anna Smashnova a tougher time. But, we'll see how they play against each other in the 1r of Eastbourne. Poor Iroda :sad: but happy for Anna :) .

Jun 16th, 2002, 09:05 PM
well done Tatiana P's :)

Julia Vakulenko should also be in this thread ;)

Iri should have won the title :(

auntie janie
Jun 17th, 2002, 01:14 AM
Eggy: Done! :)

Jun 17th, 2002, 01:23 AM
I wonder why Irina Selyutina is doing so poorly this year? :sad:
she did so well in the challengers last year and I thought she was ready to make her breakthrough in the pro's, but she has only won 1 main draw match this year... I saw her for the first time in Toronto last year and instantly liked her. :) I hope she can win some matches at Wimby! :D

Jun 17th, 2002, 10:37 AM
She should have played more challengers as well this yr
she's played too much on main tour and now she's lacking in confidence.

I saw her last week and she seems content still, hope she can turn things around.
Some challengers she's played this yr haven't gone well either, she should have played some earlier in yr

Jun 18th, 2002, 04:22 AM

Jun 18th, 2002, 02:31 PM
Julia lost :sad:

Congrats Tatiana! Good luck in the next round! :D

GOOD LUCK IRODA and IRINA in the main draw! :)

Congrats Iroda on avenging her Vienna final loss to Smashnova! Good luck in the next round! :)

Jun 19th, 2002, 04:21 PM
Iroda retired from her match against Frazier due to a right knee strain....:sad: :sad: Please I hope it's not serious...Iroda's IMO a big darkhorse for Wimbledon..PLEASE GET WELL SOON IRODA!!

Jun 19th, 2002, 04:27 PM
Tatiana is just 1 win away from being in the main draw at Wimbledon!!! She next plays the #2 seed Patricia Wartusch....GOOD LUCK TATIANA!!! I'll be cheering for you all the way! :)

Iroda hope its not too serious

good luck Tatiana :) and qualify :)

YAY Tatiana!!! Now please have a good placement in the draw! *prays that it's not Jelena Dokic!* :D :angel:

Jun 20th, 2002, 07:21 PM
Well, luckily Tatiana didn't have to play Jelena but Patty Schnyder is still a seed and a tough player as that! GOOD LUCK TATIANA!! Play the best you can do! :)

auntie janie
Jun 21st, 2002, 01:01 AM
Congrats to Tatiana on qualifying, and good luck to her! :)

Jun 21st, 2002, 08:15 PM
Extremely bad timing on the injury of Iroda. The doctors wedict sounds like a near katastrophy. Perhaps it would have been better to take the sommer off instead of hurrying to get halv fit for Wimbledon.
Sorry Iroda, but you can`t borrow my knees, they are not much better. Otherwise I will like to help.

Jun 21st, 2002, 08:26 PM
that is really bad luck for Iroda, she should rest up really but not sure if she will as its Wimbledon. Just hoping she doesn't make it any worse.
she could rest for 3 weeks or so.

auntie janie
Jun 23rd, 2002, 01:12 PM
I am astonished to see that Iroda is playing tomorrow!:eek:
I hope she is doing the right thing, and not asking for further damage to that knee. :(

Best of luck to you, Iri!

Jun 24th, 2002, 06:50 PM


ANYONE????????????????? PLEEASEEE!!!!

Jun 24th, 2002, 07:53 PM
Congrats Iroda!! :)


Jun 25th, 2002, 08:02 AM
Irina :sad: this is getting really depressing :(

she's so sweet and nice, and always smiles
come on Irina get a win and soon, play a $25K to win a match or two :)

well done Iri ;) good effort, so hoping her knee isn't too bad after all.

Jun 25th, 2002, 07:58 PM
Tatiana lost a 6-3, 4-1 lead..:( I can't belive this...oh well at least she fought til the end..she was down 4-2 in the 3rd and came back to lead 5-4 before Patty won the last 3 games...but Tatiana played a great match I hope she learns from this...TBE, do you know if Tatiana takes loses hard? Anyway I guess it's up to Iroda now...GO IRODA!! :)

Jun 25th, 2002, 08:26 PM
Tatiana should have won this, nerves :sad:

She'll be upset about this as she knows she should have won.

Hope she bounces back soon.

Jun 26th, 2002, 01:39 AM
Iroda Tulyaganova plays Chanda Rubin in the 1st match on court 2.

Jun 26th, 2002, 04:10 AM
Yay will we finally get to see Iroda on t.v.?? I ceratinly hope so! :)

Jun 26th, 2002, 03:59 PM
Woah Iroda impressed me a lot!! Huge serve and groundies, it's just too bad her knee was hurting her, I hope she gets well soon..and she seems very emotional on the court as well..I like it! :D

Jun 26th, 2002, 04:42 PM
You are spot on Julian, to watch a match with iroda can be like a theatre! You wull only miss some song numbers. She is something else.

Jun 26th, 2002, 04:51 PM
Poor Iri :sad: hope she gets her knee prob fixed soon

Jun 26th, 2002, 11:35 PM
Notice her bandged knee:sad:.
I hope she's alright soon:) .

Jun 27th, 2002, 09:39 PM
Congrats to Iroda and Asa on their doubles victory today.

Finally got to see Iroda play on TV and she is so good and I love her game. It was sad to see her grimace and kind of limp a little.

Good luck tomorrow with Asa against Testud and Vinci. :bounce:

Jun 27th, 2002, 09:41 PM
Congrats to Tatiana in doubles with Tatiana Poutchek today. They came from behind and won 7-5 in the third set against my Sammy's team.

Irina is the top seed in a $50,000 Challenger in Oyster bay, NY this week. Best of luck to her; I'd love to see her get on track on the hard courts (even though I am rooting even more for Marion Bartoli there!)

Jul 14th, 2002, 03:35 PM
Irina has had a dreadful yr, she is my fav player by along way from that part of the world.

She's always generous, a wonderful smile and she's very fit ;)

Hope she can recapture her 2001 form or else she's gonna go back to where she was ----------- around 200 mark by end of year.

auntie janie
Jul 19th, 2002, 07:38 PM

Iroda's 1st round match is against Fabiola Zuluaga. They play in the 3rd match on court 6.
Come on Iroda.
Play near your best an you can beat this girl in straight sets.

Aug 12th, 2002, 09:16 PM
Iroda lost:sad:
6-1 6-2:sad:
Oh Iroda...............what's happened to you this year?:sad:
Actually, probably exactly what happened to Elena D last year, and Kim this year.

Aug 13th, 2002, 04:36 PM
I really wish I knew what`s up with Iroda. There can be a result of changing coach in the middle of the season, but she has been coached by the same coach at least since the end of May. I suspect it is a problem who must be solved inside her head. The way she lost this match was nearly frightening. World record in unforced errors:fiery:
Next question is of course why this happends now. If she and the rest of the Tulyaganova Team can ask the right questions, they can solve it before it grews biger.
Iroda has earlier said that after a bad match, she goes home and thinks about her mistakes. That is probably not the way to go on a long terme.

Irodaīs match against Davenport in Nea Haven gave us a sign that she is running into form. After the match this came from AP:
It was their first meeting, and Davenport admitted being unprepared for Tulyganova's strong service game. Tulyganova recorded eight aces and several service winners.
'I just had difficulties,' Davenport said. 'Not many girls serve between 110 and 115 miles per hour. I haven't played somebody that served quite that hard except maybe Venus (Williams).

What we didnīt like to see was Iroda feeling something in her elbow.

Aug 21st, 2002, 09:20 AM
Iroda lost in New Haven :sad: :(

Irina another disappointing loss in US Open qualies 1st rd :sad:

Iroda and Ivanna Israilova is on their way to compete in the Asian games. Thumbs up!:bounce: :bounce: :bounce:

Oct 3rd, 2002, 03:37 AM
Iroda should be playing on WTA, her rank needs to get back into top 30

Oct 3rd, 2002, 08:00 AM
Of course TBE, Irodas ranking could and should be improved. As she is coming back from yet another injury break the Asian Games could be the right tournament to get a much needed comfidence booster. I feel that Tulyaganova has played with a burden on her shoulders the last half year, and not even she can perform her best under a heavy burden.

auntie janie
Oct 8th, 2002, 12:10 PM
What burden, salima? Pls. Explain! :confused:

Good luck in Asian Games QF, Iri! :D

Oct 10th, 2002, 07:24 PM
Sorry janie, i didnīt see this until now.
She has not performed as well as expected this year, of various resons, illness, injuries, change of coach. The pressure of performing up to your best every week can turn into a burden. Like a heavy stone at your shouldres it prevent you from feeling free.( I know i could expl. It better in my own language). Iroda is known to have a happy soul, and that has allways been to her advantige. It is like: The more you think the poorer you play, in tennis and in many other faces of life.

Play, donīt worry Iroda

Iroda is in the Mixed with Mahesh Bhupathi. They have won their first match. I hope they win the title (that is, if Martina Navratilova can't do it!)! Go Iri! :)

and they won the second match..... 7-6 1-6 7-6 I hope they didnīt use all their luck in one match:)
Mahresh Bhupathi is the owner of the compant who stages Iroda Tulyaganovaīs next intended tournament. I guess he will assure she will return injury free from Australia. And put in a word for pushing the shoulder operation on ice.

Tatiana Perebiynis, with Tina Krizan, has reached the final of the doubles competiton of the Colombian' Copa Colsanitas.

She'll be playing the final later today v. Svensson/Srebotnik

Come on Tatiana :bounce:

Feb 22nd, 2003, 10:02 PM
Tatiana lost :sad:

But, well, at least, she (with Krizan) was able to get a few results together. Let's see if she can get some more on singles.

Feb 25th, 2003, 03:33 PM
:o She's playing doubles in Scottsdale with Jennifer Embry(USA)

Tatiana's next tournament where she'll play singles will be the challenger of Arizona, at Meza, 50K, from march 10th , where it seems she'll have to play the qualies.

Mar 14th, 2003, 12:14 AM

Hi Central! :wavey:
This thread actually started with a question -- I asked the community here, was it okay if we cheer for players such as Iroda, who are not from Russia, here in Russian Roulette? From there it evolved into a cheering thread for some of those players. :)

Feel free to start a new thread featuring just one of these players! No one will mind! :kiss:

Congrats to Iri on her big win! :D
I just wish the victim did not have to be my EB. :sad:

Mar 22nd, 2003, 06:31 PM

Sorry for the late answer.
I guess I was misunderstood again... :o
I was trying to be ironic about the fact that, in the same thread, there were people cheering for a player to win, and to lose (as they were cheering for her opponent).
But I love this thread, and I like Iroda too (as she was borned the following day I did).

Sorry if I offended any of you :wavey:

Apr 1st, 2003, 05:29 AM
Good luck in Sarasota Iroda ;)

First she plays against Panova
I expect nothing but a win :D

Apr 1st, 2003, 03:10 PM
On Eurosport during Australian open they said:
"And in picture you see Panovas coach", and actually in picture was Batir, Irodas father! :D

Stay patient today Iroda ;) :worship:

Apr 15th, 2003, 12:52 AM
such a poor result for iroda. she has been playing well most of this year. is barna a good clay courter? iroda imo should have won this in straight sets quite easily. i hope she is playing better by the tiime the slam rolls around.

Apr 15th, 2003, 06:34 PM

Tatiana P. retired against 16 year old Katya today. Get well soon. And let your hair grow out.
You're a beautiful woman. You should go back to the 2003 US Open look.

Oct 9th, 2004, 05:23 PM
What happened to Tatiana? Got injured during the end of the first set?
Yes she's beautiful :hearts: but honestly I think she looks better with her hair this way...
