Anyone know what Vera's schedule is leading into the aus open?She will play Sydney the week prior to the Australian Open.

Also does anyone know who Vera's doubles partners gonna be?If Bepa and Nastya are playing the same tournament, and both want to play doubles, they'll play together.

Its certainly been an indifferent start to Vera's campaign at the Aussie Open, she didnt play too well in her 1st match and hopefully we'll have a big improvement tonight against the other Vera!! Good luck our Vera!! :)

Does she frustrate you guys as much as she frustrates me?? :) She really does drive me mad at times with her emotional traumas that she seems to have oncourt at inappropriate times (like when shes winning)!! :lol:

Hey everyone, was at the ausopen. watched vera crumble in the second round, was pretty awful viewing, saw a bit of her in the doubles, still didnt look too good out there.
Vera spent plenty of time out on the practice courts throughout the 2 weeks, then again, its not like she had much else to do!
Of interest was on the day after her semi finals exit in the doubles, Vera and her coach had a very tough workout on Vera's serve, they spent about an hour in the heat, and Vera looked to be very frustrated and was constantly arguing with her coach, disagreeing with all the points he was making. The coach ended up walking away, having a smoke, and then came back.
Lets hope vera has a few results go her way pretty shortly, or this could be a long frustrating year for her.

Thanks for posting your observations.
Did you get the impression that she wilted in the heat?

Yea, i was at her second round loss, it was pretty awful stuff, it was played first up in the morning at about 11.15, but the heat was dreadful - even just for watching, i really dont think Vera liked the heat at all, and as a result, her confidence has been shot.
Vera's whole game was well short of what it should've been, so yes, i think the heat was the main factor.
