Well, she put on a good show at Indian Wells, and fell only at the final hurdle. On we go now to Miami on the Sveta roller-coaster. Hoping for a lucky draw and also some inspired play from Sveta, then maybe she can go just one better ... and defend her title!!!

GOOD LUCK SVETLANA !!

she's seeded 3rd, bye first round and will play nakamura or the qualifier bondarenko in the 2nd round. she has a decent draw to the QFs. if she can get there then she'll probably have a big match waiting for her.

Hopefully the first couple of matches here will be quite easy for Sveta. But then in the fourth round it's likely to be Shahar Peer - I still have vivid memories of that same match-up in the fourth round in Melbourne back in January, but I'm sure the result will be different this time - Sveta should give Shahar a good kicking! Positively, Sveta's form and confidence have returned now.

Sveta has been playing a lot of tennis this spring. She might be tired.

Yes, But I hope she will reach at least to the semifinals.

I'm sure she has still enough power to kick Peer ;-)

Sveta is doing it the hard way. She must have been worn out after her unconvincing second-round match, which was late at night, so it was with some relief that I saw her result yesterday in the third round, straight sets.

And now here we are again, Sveta in a third set. At least she's not fallen the same way against Shahar Peer as she did in Melbourne.

I was feeling tired at work today - I wanted an early night but if I go to bed before this match finishes I won't sleep at all. I've got the live scores up from the Sony Ericsson WTA website and right now Sveta is a break up in that third set but under threat of being broken back. Oh dear.... And it's now 11.20pm UK time....

Oh Sveta, cummon....

Well, from 3-1 up in the final set, she lost it 3-6. Despite being 40-love up in what proved to be the final game. Seems like Sveta must have wilted in the final set. Maybe it was too much to ask after some long matches both at Indian Wells and here. Let's just hope Sveta can get rested before her next tournament - which I believe is not next week but the week after (anyone correct me if I'm wrong?).

Oh dear. :sad: :gnashing of teeth:

Sveta has been playing non-stop since Dubai. But this was still a tough loss. Not a good showing to defend her title.
Now she's on to clay.

I hope she'll take some time to recover now to feel fit again for Charleston.
