Because these best of/worst of lists seem to be popping up in the offseason, i thought ide jump on the bandwagon and do one for nastya

Best: (tie) the win vs venus fed cup and watching in person bothe her sunday us open practice and her 1st round us open win

Worst: sitting front row as a nastya shot hits the middle of the net, giving elena likhovtseva a us open win and giving me nightmares for a few days

Best: her Wimbledon matches: not always great quality tennis, but she really fought for every point. At that point, I knew she would slowly turn back to her old self. I also loved her press conference at the US Open where she said she was really happy because her mom was better :hug: .

Worst: euhm, many bad matches, but her fed cup loss to May Pierce was so heart-breaking. Fed Cup is so important to her and she was on the edge of giving the decisive rubber to Russia, but she failed. She looked so depressed during the doubles match. I really thought she would go down in her first match in India because of that FC-loss. This loss was also very painful for me because that was one of the only matches I saw this year. I was so happy the first half of the match: 6-4 4-2, some good tennis and Nastya giving the third point to her team, but suddenly the lights went out.

Best : the Wimbledon 3rd round. Just unbelievable.
Worst: to me it was the match that she lost in Doha against Martinez. I saw the end of the 2nd set and it was heartbreaking. I was so upset after the match that I took a walk around the hood to chill myself.

Best: The win over Lena D. at Wimbledon to get to the quarterfinals.

Worst: A lot to chose from here. I say the loss to Dechy at AO because her draw had really opened up. She easily should have made the semi-finals and had a legitimate chance at winning it all.

Oh, crap, I knew that Wimbledon thing would come up.:cry:

Perversely, my worst Nastya moment was when she single-handedly knocked the U.S. of A out of Fed Cup.

Best is when she won Kolkata, just because so many people were proclaiming her career was over and she'd never win another tournament.

Worst: (so many at the beginning of the year!) Probably her first round match at RG, I was in the stadium and couldn't believe my eyes! In the third set at some point I thought I could have done better than her against MSL :tape:

Bests: her win over Jankovic (my body hasn't fully recovered yet because I was watching a scoreboard :lol: )
Her win over Venus in FC :eek:
Her title in Kolkota :angel:

Worst moments : defeat vs Mary Pierce at the final fed cup!! above all the way it happened_ i don't imagine her sadness !! it's the worst moment , she's so disappointed - she is pratically in tears !!! Horrible !!!! ( bad feelings about competition ))
it reminds me Olympics games semi final !!! and logically i'm frustrated !!!
The 1st half of the year !!! NASTYA dropped about 5 ranks !!
Bad statistics : she has just won vs Elena , about the top 10 confrontations!!
Next year , she could do better !!!

Best moments : even if she won a "little tournament" Tier 3 , she won it !!!
AND the new boom in the performances of Nastya at Wimby
where she plays very tough matches for mental !!!
this time , she won it !!!

Best: Seeing her play doubles at Aus Open, getting her towel and Nastya trying to steal my texta! :haha: I the first person to get something signed so she took my texta and signed for everyone. I has to wait from start to finish. She then went to put my texta into her tennis bag :lol: Also at wimbledon the match against Jankovic. I think I nearly had 10 heartattacks during that match! :haha:

Worst: French open. I'm not gong to say anymore on that :sad: Also when she played Mary Pierce. I hated it coz my two favourite players were playing!

Ok, now here comes to million dollar question, I´ve always asked myself...I know what I would do with an autograph and with a pic and everything but what did you do with the towel? I´ve always asked myself that question. Would you put in the washingmachine and than put it up on the wall or just inside the wardrobe or wouldn´t you wash it and wait for the day till it starts to smell? This is a serious question! Seems like Justine has a better memory than Nastya (the textmarker-thing). She even thanked me for the pen...evil people who say that Justine was well...evil :lol:

:haha: It's sitting on a shelf in my room! I told my mum not to wash it coz she washed one my brother's towels with Paola Suarez's signature on it. :lol: I have still got the texta, prob use it again next year at the Aus Open.

Best - Nastya winning that Wimbledon third round match against Jankovic. It was only in the third round but the match was thisclose, at the end I was celebrating as though she'd won the title. ;)

Worst - French Open first round . Need I say more? :sad:

Worst moment: 1R loss at the French Open :sad: It just put an exclamation point to the miserable first half she had :(

Best moment: Her Wimbledon run: She's BACK BITCHES! And also her Fed Cup victory over Venus Williams: WIMBLEDON WASN'T A FLUKE, BEWARE SLUTS! :armed::devil:

Best - Wimbledon, I really felt like Myskina was turning around there. And her comebacks were just vintage Msykina

Worst - Hearing the reports about her mom in the first half of the year. The whole year till Wimbledon.

My best moments:

1. I were in Paris at Roland Garros in 2004 and I saw Nastya winnng her QF, her SF and her F. I became a Nastya-fan after that. :bounce:

2. I went to Filderstadt in 2005 to watch Nastya's games. I were so lucky to meet Nastya very shortly. I gave her a present (H.C. Andersen fairy-tales in an Russian edition), and Nastya allowed me to give her a kiss on her beutiful cheek. :hearts:

Worst moment:

1. Nastya leads 5 - 1 in 3th, and never the less Nastya lost her 2004-Olympic semis to Henin. I were depressed a week after that match. :sad:

Worst moment: The day before RG start when she told that her mother was ill.

Best moments: The incredible wins over Bohmova, Jankovic and Lena D. at Wimby, the victories over Williams and Craybas in the Fed Cup semis and the US Open when Nastya said that her mum (healthy again) was in New York with her. What a relief!!

One of the best moments in 2005 for me was Nastya and Daniela winning the doubles-title in Filderstadt - in their first team-up :bowdown:
