Dunno why Kuzzy retired. This opens up the draw for Kim now :)

Bad luck Kuzzy :(

Kata :rocker2:

I hope Sveta is ok

Jan 9th, 2007, 06:52 AM
Sveta :sad: although she did have to pull out of her Hong Kong match against Zheng last week due to bronchitis, so maybe the effects of that are still affecting her. i'm sure she'll be alright for the AO, fingers crossed :)

congrats kata :)

Apparently, Svetlana was having breathing problems during the match:


Jan 9th, 2007, 09:31 AM
Sorry for Sveta but go Kata!

Jan 9th, 2007, 09:58 AM
^^ditto :)

sveta :sad:

Jan 9th, 2007, 11:06 AM
Sveta :shrug: she should have withdrawn :( :(
got only a few days left to recover.

Jan 9th, 2007, 11:08 AM
Once again, Sydney is plagued with so many withdrawals.

Jan 9th, 2007, 11:09 AM
Sveta :sad: Hope she's okay for the AO.

Jan 9th, 2007, 11:10 AM
Sveta :(
Hope she gets better for the AO

Jan 9th, 2007, 11:10 AM
She was wrong to show up in Sydney at all.
Who knows if she will be ready for next week.

Jan 9th, 2007, 11:11 AM
Sveta :hug: I hope she will be fit for the AO

Jan 9th, 2007, 11:14 AM
sveta was coughing badly throughout the match and was taking quite a long time between points. i hope she can recover before the aussie but im not sure if she will :(

Jan 9th, 2007, 11:16 AM
just found this quote from sveta:

"This really disappoints me a lot," she said. "But I just need to stop in the middle of the rally to breathe, and my nose is closed and I hear everything ringing in my ears.

"The blood is going up and I can't really focus with everything else."

"I definitely will play the Australian Open but if I feel a bit like this I will push myself and maybe I will have to retire again," she added.

"I am really motivated to play. But if I am the same way as I am today, I won't. But if I get better, I think I should.

"It's impossible I stay like this one more week. It's not that serious for me."

I've heard Sveta played just to see what her condition is.
Obviously a bad decision. I hope she can recover in time for the AO though.

Kata got a bit lucky today, hopefully she can capitalise against Li and reach the semis.

Sveta is a very tough girl. She might not go far in Melbourne, but she'll play.

Jan 9th, 2007, 12:15 PM
Svet, get well soon

Jan 9th, 2007, 12:17 PM
Talk about a terrible 24 hours for the top Russians in Sydney.

Safina loses to Pratt, Elena blows a 5-2 lead, Petrova and Kuznetsova retire...

Jan 9th, 2007, 12:47 PM
It's a good thing Sydney is only a Tier II. It's like New Haven, a very small unimportant event.

Jan 9th, 2007, 02:46 PM
Sveta :sad:

Jan 9th, 2007, 04:26 PM
Doesn't sound like Kuznetsova is going to be ready for the AO.

Jan 9th, 2007, 04:49 PM
Doesn't sound like Kuznetsova is going to be ready for the AO.

She will be ready, she said it in the interview

Jan 9th, 2007, 05:01 PM
get well soon Svetlana. :hug:

Jan 9th, 2007, 05:56 PM
hope problem nothing serious

Jan 9th, 2007, 07:36 PM
sveta :sad: :scared:

what a day :rolleyes:

Jan 9th, 2007, 08:08 PM
She will be ready, she said it in the interview
They are all saying they will be ready for the OZ Open :rolleyes: I suppose they truth is they will play injured (as always).

Europe rocks
Jan 9th, 2007, 08:38 PM
Hopefully Sveta will be feeling better in time for the Open :sad: She says she should be which is a good sign I guess
