Did anybody notice how badly she started all matches here, but how strongly (career best?) continue all that matches and also finished (except in final)?

Bepa road to Doha final:

2nd round (Schiavone):
2-6 6-3 6-4

3rd Round (Safina):
4-5(0-40) 9-3

Quarterfinal (Bammer):
2-6 6-2 6-0

Semifinal (Na Li):
3-6 6-3 6-3

Final match (Sharapova):
1-6 6-2 0-6


WTH is this??? Is this some new tactics "LULL, than DESTROY" or she have some problems to awake and no sliping when match already started?

Held 4 times in set 2. 4 for 4

I don't know! One things for certain and that is Vera has improved in the emotions department. She's so more in control of them and overall will bring about better play from her! Keep it together Vera!!!!

At least she had the strength to carry on, dig deep and not give up.

I don't understand the analogy.

I don't understand the analogy either.

I like Vera's clean all-court game.

Maria was too good today .... hoping Vera can gain some injury-free momentum, get back in the top 20 where she belongs.
