I've just found out that she is in top 500. Does anyone know her schedule for the rest of the year? Will she try to get in the US Open qualifying? Will she play Kremlin Cup?
Jul 18th, 2002, 06:19 PM
She got injured in her last match in Dallas 4 weeks ago :(
No idea where she will be playing but she should have stayed a bit longer in the juniors just for this yr even.
Kremlin Cup i doubt it, she would be out of her depth just right now (maybe 2003)
Her USTA results don't exactly look too good.
Jul 19th, 2002, 01:03 AM
What kind of injury?
I hope Katia stays healthy and improves by leaps and bounds! :bounce:
Jul 19th, 2002, 02:41 AM
Her results can be found here:
They are not very impressive, but at least she manage to raise her rank to 470.
Jul 20th, 2002, 05:12 AM
it seems that this girl is overhyped... at least here on this board... and we all know who's done it ;)
Jul 20th, 2002, 05:13 AM
I'm sorry to say, but I don't trust anyone that comes out of Rick Macci's camp anymore. ;)
Jul 20th, 2002, 05:32 AM
tenn_ace, we hardly ever hear about Katia Afinogenova. Who's overhyping her? Can you fill me in? :confused:
Vanity, a rare Queen Vee sighting in Russian Roulette! :eek:
But I have to agree with you about Rick Macci. Whoever told Katia to quit the juniors last year made a mistake. :(
And there was no reason for Katia to sign a 10 year contract with Macci a few years ago. I was shocked when I read that then! :eek: And I'm still shocked about it! :eek: But I hope Katia puts her difficulties behind her and plays some fine tennis.
Udachi Katia! :bounce:
Jul 21st, 2002, 05:08 AM
The cat, I have a question to you, if you wouldn't like to answer, it's OK.
I understand that most of the posters in this forum have an obvious Russian connection. Do you have any specific reasons behind your support for Russian WTA and ATP players?
Jul 21st, 2002, 12:13 PM
the cat, about a year ago, our dear TBE had some post about Katia being a really good prospect......... that's actually how I learn about her. we even had a thread discussing her future. She IS probably talented, but, even playing lots of tournaments, she still hasn't done what other girls of her age did. I bet it's really discouraging for her........:o
anyhow, good luck Katia!
Jul 21st, 2002, 12:18 PM
her results haven't matched up, but she still is only 15
nearly all her wins have been in 10K events
once she grows into her body, i'm pretty sure she'll do good.
Not everyone can become really good at 15 or so.
Jul 22nd, 2002, 09:10 PM
I was just looking up old threads on Katia, and one poster said that they met her and she said she was "too good" for juniors. Given her coach though, that's not surprising, since I am sure Macci has been blowing up her ego. I wonder if she still thinks that. I hope not, since she hasn't even won a 10K yet, and the competition level in juniors is MUCH higher than that of a 10k event.
Jul 23rd, 2002, 01:13 AM
ys, I'll gladly answer your question. Up until about 10 years ago, I did not cheer for Russia or the Soviet Union in sporting events. In fact I rooted against Russia. But once the breakup occured, I started to follow Russia and it's athletes closer. I read a New York Times article on Anna Kournikova in February of 1992, about her move from Moscow to Bradenton. In Bradenton, Anna would have the opportunity to train in with the best facilities in the world. She did have have that opprtunity to train under such great conditions in her homeland.
That's when I began to look at the Russian athlete in a different light. I used to see the Russian/Soviet athletes and teams as the so called "bad guys". But once I understood how hard life was for them and nearly all Russians, I changed my views on Russia. I started to view Russians as underdog athletes and Russia as an underdog country.
In the 1980's, I really liked the Swedes! :bounce: Classy and wonderful players! I especially liked Stefan Edberg. And I always rooted for him to beat everyone. Including American players! :eek: And I'm not ahamed to say that I rooted for Sweden over America in the Davis Cup Ties they had. It's only tennis afterall!
After Edberg retired in 1996, I was looking for a new favorite player. And there she was, Anna Kournikova, making her grand slam debut at the 1996 U.S. Open. At that time I really didn't pay much attention to women's tennis. But Anna changed all that. I even started rooting for Chesnokov and Kafelnikov, too.
In my eyes, the once mighty Russia was now an underdog in the sports world! :eek: And I started to root for Russia in all sports in the World Championships and Olympics. The Cold War was over. My all time favorite sports memeory is the Miracle On Ice at the 1980 Winter Olympics when the underdog American Hockey team pulled off a monumental upset to beat the great Soviet hockey team! :bounce:
But that was then. And this is now. I am quite attracted to Russian history and culture. And I want to see Russia as a country improve it's quality of life in our lifetime! :D Naturally America comes first for me as a country. But I don't mind hoping that Russia has a better future than it seems to have.
I even rooted for Russian athletes and teams in the recent Olympics. I rooted for Irina Slutskaya to become the first Russian woman to win figure skating gold! But she let it slip away, and Sarah Hughes won the gold. I rooted for a Russian over a fellow Long Islander! :eek: And I rooted for the Russian hockey team over the American team. This is only sports. And the Cold War is long over. The Miracle On Ice can never be replace or duplicated! But that was a long time ago. And the once mighty Russian/Soviet spots factory was decimated.
From Kournikova to Kafelnikov to Safin and Dementieva, I root for the Russians first and foremost in tennis. I like them as people, and they a very mediocre tennis history that I want to see developed into something special! :D Naturally I like Kournikova, Dementieva and Sharapova the most. Safin drives me crazy! But I really like the big guy! :)
I generally like Russian athletes. Pavel Bure is a favorite of mine. Sergei Fedorov, too. And a number of Track and Field athletes, too. And Wrestling great Alexander Karolin might be the most impressive champion athlete and person that I have ever seen! :D
And I like Russian models, too! I think they should being doing better as a country producing top Fashion Models. I mean Russian women are quite beautiful! Yet small countries like the Czech Republic and Slovakia produce more top models than Russia does. And that perplexes me.
And I rooted for Miss Russia to bw the first Russian women to win the Miss Universe Pageant. And she did!
The fact is ys, I enjoy rooting for Russian athletes! And Russia as a country. Fifteen years ago I never thought this would have been possible! But it has happened. In my eyes, Russia is now an underdog country in alot of trouble ecenomically and healthwise. I hope the situation improves. But unfortunaltely that's not likely anytime soon.
One of my favorite Russian athletes is Elena Zamolodchikova. I rooted for her so hard in the 2000 Sydney Olympics. And when she didn't come through for Russia in the Gymnastics team competition, I wanted to cry for her because her Father had died earlier in the year. But then she came through to win 2 indivdual Gymnastics gold medals for Russia. I was so happy for her!
I don't know if I made myself clear. I have had 2 glasses of White Wine tonight! ;) But I tried to express myself intelligently and coherently.
Inetresting question ys. I hope I gave a good answer!
P.S. - I hope Rick Macci has not hurt Katia Afinogenova's career! :eek: Whoever told her to quit the juniors made a big mistake! :mad: I hope Katia can recover from that.
Jul 23rd, 2002, 01:32 AM
Thanks, the cat..
My all time favorite spots memeory is the Miracle On Ice at the 1980 Winter Olympics when the underdog American Hockey team pulled off a monumental upset to beat the great Soviet hockey team!
Recently I had a flight to Rockies on the wonderful New-York airline named Jetblue. And during the flight one of the channels available onboard replayed that match. You know, it was surprising to see it again. And it left me absolutely sure that the match was actually fixed. The difference in class in this match was so vast, you could see that it is a superclass team skating against a very mediocre team. USSR could score at every attack they made, they were so fast, they were circling around Americans, toying with them. Yet they lost, conceding a goal almost each time Amercans crossed the centre line. There could be a lot of reasons to fix that match and I am pretty convinced that it could well be the case.
Jul 23rd, 2002, 01:41 AM
Come on ys! :( After my heartfelt reply, I was astonished to read that you think the Miracle On Ice game might have been fixed. Preposterous! Slava Fetisov says that loss still bothers him 22 years later! :sad: The USSR coach pulled the great Tretiak in that game. And that upset thr Soviet team a great deal. The coach panicked and the team lost to a very opprtune American team. That's how I will always look at it.
Who caoched that game for the USSR? Do you remember ys? Because I'm not sure if it was Tikhinov or not.
And if that game was fixed, why wasn't the gold medal game against Finland fixed? The Finns led by a goal going into the third period. The U.S. Team was fortunate not to have a letdown and let the gold medal slipaway. It almost happened! :eek:
Jul 23rd, 2002, 01:54 AM
Slava Fetisov says that loss still bothers him 22 years later!
It is not necessary for every player to be involved in the fix. Defenders are the least important players in this case. You need keeper, and you need forwards to miss on their chances..
Who caoched that game for the USSR?
Of course, it was Tikhonov. He took over Russian team in 1978.
why wasn't the gold medal game against Finland fixed?
You can't fix the whole tournament. But you can fix the most important match. You see, it was indeed a Miracle. For that to happen I would expect Soviets to play poor. But they didn't. In fact, they were flying. For that to happen I would expect Americans to play way over their head. But they didn't too. They played that mediocre brand of hockey that they played all tournament. Kharlamov had no problems squeezing the puck between the feet of US defenders, but he was missing the open net. Tretiak looked like a rookie. Interesting, isn't it? Yes, they pulled Tretiak, but how do you know that it was not a part of the fix plan? You believe that Tikhonov, who never panicked, would panick against the team that his team was easily outskating? Something just didn't feel right. If you have a chance, watch it again. It is like if Venus Williams would lose to Panova. It could possibly happen, but not in the semis or finals of US Open.
Jul 23rd, 2002, 02:22 AM
Just give the American team its just due ys! But you won't. Not even 22 years later! :eek: The American team was better that night because their Goaltender outplayed the Soviet Goalie. That's hockey! And you know that.
Jul 23rd, 2002, 02:36 AM
Keep believing your fairy tales, the cat.. Or watch the match again..:)
Jul 23rd, 2002, 02:43 AM
What match? It was a game! ;) The better team won that night! :eek: It's time to turn the page ys!

how do you call that fat lol. she looks like she has a solid build but she has a pretty flat stomach, big legs and arms though.
Jun 15th, 2004, 04:47 AM
http://sportsmed.starwave.com/media/ten/2001/0525/photo/i_afingenova_i.jpgBloodlines -- her mother was a Russian track star and her brother plays for the Buffalo Sabres -- made Rick Macci want to coach Katia Afinogenova.Answering the call
Three years ago the phone rang at Rick Macci's tennis center in Pompano Beach, Fla. It was the agent for Buffalo Sabres winger Maxim Afinogenov. He wondered if Macci would consider tutoring Maxim's little sister, Katia Afinogenova.
Macci sighed. He gets "hundreds" of these calls all the time. But when the agent said that Katia's mother was a seven-time Russian 800-meter champion, Macci suspended his disbelief. A student of genetics, Macci factored in the family success in track and hockey and promptly said yes.
"Everybody has a flavor of the month," Macci said. "But being the best in your state or best in your country doesn't mean stardom. This sounded different. I said, 'Can you get a ticket tomorrow?' "
Last year Macci signed Afinogenova, then 13, to a 10-year contract that guarantees him a percentage of her future winnings. There are bonuses and paybacks when she turns pro, but Macci is betting hundreds of thousands of dollars of his own money that Afinogenova is going to be a player.
"I took a chance with Venus and Serena and Capriati," Macci said. "Katia has a chance to succeed at their level."
Jul 6th, 2004, 09:29 PM
What is her schedule for the rest of the summer?
Jul 22nd, 2004, 07:31 AM
not sure about her schedule but katia is currently playing the $10k ancona, italy event. she won her first match and now plays ivanova, ivanova took out the first seed in straight sets but hopefully katia can take advantage of the opening up of this draw.
good luck in the next round katia!
Jul 22nd, 2004, 05:30 PM
Jul 29th, 2004, 07:27 PM
What happend to Katia in her match against Ivanova who is having a brilliant year?
Jul 30th, 2004, 01:30 AM
katia lost and ivanova made it to the final but lost to ancic.
Sep 1st, 2004, 12:26 AM
wow, I was looking up names of tennis players I used to go to school with, and Katia seems to be doing pretty well. I went to Katia's school (I graduated already). I didn't really know her, we were in different grades, but she was very snobby and not very nice. She had a couple of friends and was just pretty rude to everyone else. Well, that's when she was actually in school. She was hardly ever in school, so the teachers didn't like her very much. Well, that, and she had a very smart mouth. Oh, well, good luck to her anyways :)
Sep 23rd, 2004, 06:30 PM
Katya's having a good few weeks ;) finally :)
lasy week a QF in 25k Ashland (lost to Salerni)

She has been playing better lately. She still has time. She has the talent to be top 50.
Sep 27th, 2004, 04:31 PM
I didn't know Katia was Maxim's brother. Maxim plays hockey in my home town, he's a talented guy.
She's not ;) she's his sister :angel:
Katya plays 25k qualies in Birmingham
final rd vs Kristina Czafikova
good luck Katya ;)
Sep 27th, 2004, 05:03 PM
He hangs out with Dementieva.
Sep 30th, 2004, 09:25 PM
Katya on the up little by little. From Qual into second round. About a win away from the top 500. Soon she's seen the back of the AER. Think she'll have a Nina like season next year. :D :D
Oct 1st, 2004, 11:56 AM
another good result :)
Katya won her 2nd rd 64 46 63 :yeah: ;)

Well done in making it to the QF's. About to enter the top 500. :D
Oct 2nd, 2004, 03:14 PM
She lost to Zemenova, not sure about the score. I thought she could win this match but good job on making the quarters
Oct 3rd, 2004, 04:51 AM
unfortunate katia. but she is getting wins consistently which is a big step up from last year. keep at it katia!
Oct 30th, 2004, 01:19 PM

Oct 31st, 2004, 01:54 AM
Katya lost 5-7 6-3 7-6(5)

I think next year will be a breakthrough year for her.
She has the talent to be top 100
Nov 29th, 2004, 05:58 PM
Katya won her 1st rd quali match in Palm Beach Gardens ($50k)

well done Katya, good luck in 2nd match vs Audra Cohen
Nov 29th, 2004, 06:31 PM
She's slightly improving, if she keeps improving like the past months. She may be predicted to play the US-Open Qual. Think next season she'll have a Nina/Katya B. like season or even better. :D
Nov 30th, 2004, 06:26 PM
Won her 2nd Qual round as well 6-4 6-4. That's what's needed the most. Go Katya get better and better results. :D :)
Dec 1st, 2004, 05:00 PM
Made it to the Main Draw. Very comfortable win vs. C. Wheeler. Good to beat a higher ranked player. :D She's getting closer to the top 400.
In the Main Draw she got the worst draw vs. Sesil K.
Dec 1st, 2004, 06:53 PM
Udachi Katia! :D She's starting to play like a solid professional tennis player.
Dec 2nd, 2004, 01:14 AM
She really has stepped up her play the last few months. It is great because she has TONS of talent. Has the talent of a Sharapova/Vaidisova
Dec 5th, 2004, 01:52 PM
Katya lost to Sesil 6-2 6-1, but that was a very tough match. Just qualifying was very good. She now will play the USTA International Winter Champiionships G1 Junior Tournament. She is in the qualifying but with the way she has been playing I think she is a threat to win the entire thing! Good Luck Katya!!!!!!
Dec 6th, 2004, 06:28 AM
Thanks Kutuzova :)
