Vera is on the players' list for the Tier II Bangalore Open. The field isnt too strong and we can expect Serena to withdraw yet again, I guess.

BANGALORE, February 26: Top Russian player and world number 21, Vera Zyonareva, would participate in the Bangalore Open 2008, to be held from March three to nine.

Having lost the finals in three sets at Doha last week to Maria Sharapova, Zyonareva has decided to take short break before she heads to Bangalore for the tournament.

"It has been a great week for me in Doha. Of course I wish I could do better in the finals, but I still have lots of things to work on. But no matter what, I am glad I am improving with every match and it was great to make a final in the first event after I was injured in Australia. I will spend a couple of days in Moscow relaxing and get ready for Bangalore," she said in a statement.

"I am excited about going to India, especially since I have never played there. I will try to play my best there", the Russian player said.

Zyonarava has won five WTA tour singles titles, four WTA tour Doubles titles and two ITF Women's Circuit Singles titles. Her first slam quarter final came at the 2002 French open when she defeated Venus Williams in the fourth round.

Vera plays a Q in the first round of Bangalore. Second Round could be against another Q or Lakhani. Potential QF against Venus.

She plays doubles as well with Manasieva against Sun/Peng.

Vera might have to play Venus, Serena and Jankovic in a row.

:banana::banana:Vera wins again!!:banana::banana:
always good to have a difficult win early to keep you sharp!:)
Another Romanian next - Szatmari. unknown but never to be underestimated.
I guess these are the "easy" matches before you meet the Williams sisters and JJ.
Good luck and fight hard:bounce:
