that was truly awful, it was a great fight though, it was pleasing how she hung in there and really fought hard today, im hoping she manages to up her game, and at least make the fourth round so i get to see her play :P Glad shes playing dubs with amelie, has been a while :)

tim4
Jun 23rd, 2008, 10:34 PM
Well, that was scary. The first-set t/b must have been crucial - and Sveta lost it. Then the second set, so close, but fortunately she fought her way out of trouble and then got the third set as well. All much too close for comfort. And, on paper, the next round won't be any easier.
I was watching the live scores on the BBC website, but then after I left work half-way through the third set I didn't know the outcome until Mary texted me, thanks for that. Mary said that Sveta wasn't playing well, her serve wasn't working, and the first set was depressing.
But I do admire Sveta for her hard-working ethic and her determination, even if it doesn't always show in her match results. Maybe, well she always wants to win, but does she put herself under too much pressure?

Match report: Yes, I braved Court 2 although after my experience in 2006 I swore I would never set foot there again unless I had a reserved seat!

First set. Same problems as Eastbourne. Some occasional great serves mixed with a fairly low 1st-serve percentage. Mathilde had a good game plan: attack the 2nd serve and return consistently to Sveta's backhand, which was not so strong in the first 2 sets.

As for the serve (imo--I'm not a tennis expert or a coach), to me it seemed as though she was going for a LOT; even w/ the missed first serves, she still kept going for the 105-110 mph serve. It was only in parts of the 2nd and 3rd sets that she served some safe 1st serves (and they were very effective since Mathilde was not expecting the serves to go in!!!!)

Net play was good. I liked it very much when Sveta served and volleyed.

Return of serve was quite bad, imo. Sveta would probably agree w/ that, as she was making bad faces and calling out 'mal' and practicing her footwork and shoulder turn before receiving.

I was talking to another forum member (super_marion, who was waiting for the Bartoli match), and she mentioned that without her serve and bh, it seems all Sveta is is a big forehand (that's a simplification, of course, but w/o her confidence, Sveta seemed like an average player.)

Thank goodness Sveta woke up in the middle of the 3rd set. All of the sudden there was a completely different player out there. She moved well, her shots had more pace and crispness--basically she got her confidence and fire back, and Mathilde was extremely surprised at the change and couldn't not adjust (I don't think Mathilde really had to do much before that in the match to be ahead of Sveta.)

Grace Jones was in Sveta's box. I didn't see her, but a friend of mine told me that Grace was cheering Sveta with extreme enthusiasm.

Tim, I did give Sveta a really loud yell after you texted me. I think it helped. :)

Thanks a lot for that report Mary :worship:

So Sveta started playing good suddenly after 2 bad sets? well I wonder why she keeps having those lapses :help: Oh and what happened to you in 2006 in that court? Well,at least,I hope despite the scare you had a great time there :D Her serve keeps worrying me but I'm sure Sveta is aware of that as well.Grace Jones,you mean the singer? :eek: wow

Re: Wimbledon court 2. I'm slightly agoraphobic. It usually only comes on when I'm surrounded by lots of people and can't see. Unless I'm right at the front of the standing area on court 2, I'm surrounded by lots of people and can't see.

For Sveta's match (this year), I got lucky and got to the front row. Also, the security during her match was really tight; they didn't let too many people up to the standing area.

Unfortunately, for Mauresmo's match later that day, I gave up my front row to a friend, security let everyone up there, and I got surrounded by lots of people, and left for the relative security of court 3. (I got so freaked out by court 2 when I went there in 2006 (for Sveta's R1 match) that I didn't go see Mauresmo's R1 match (of 2006.) I just wouldn't go back there.)

Re: Grace Jones. I remember reading something about Sveta attending some Grace Jones' concert (party?) Grace is looking good for 60 years old! Hell, she's looking good for any age.

Let's hope tomorrow is an easier match for Sveta, that she focusses and does all the right things.
I have just managed to acquire a centre court ticket via Ticketmaster, so with any luck I'll be cheering her on, and I'll cheer extra loud on behalf of all her fans on this board.
Mary, I hope you have a safe journey home - see you again sometime soon.

Svetlana is playing good, her serve isn't there yet (4 double faults in the first set), but she's very agressive and good at the net :) But Bonaderenko has a lot of (unforced) errors. So some easy points for Svetlana. Her groundstokes are good.

Any overall match comments...

Svetlana played consitent, good groundstrokes and good at the net. Her serve could have been better (1 ace and 8 df). She was really aggressive in the first set, esp by going to the net a lot. Bondarenko got more into the match at the second set, but Svetlana was focused and hit some good shots. But Bondarenko did give away lot of points.

To be quite honest, Svetlana played a lot better than I thought she would after that first round.

Bероника
Jun 25th, 2008, 05:45 PM
thanks elisabeth :yeah:

but her serve still concerns me,8 dfs is too much,she won't always have oppoent giving her points as today.

This is what they wrote about the match at tournament site:

Kuznetsova overpowers Bondarenko
Wednesday, 25 June 2008
Written by Alix Ramsey
Svetlana Kuznetsova is safely through to the third round after her 6-2, 6-3 win over Kateryna Bondarenko, but now the real work starts.
It was not a match that Kuznetsova will wish to remember and one that she won by dint of being older, more experienced and simply bigger than her slender opponent and could hit the ball harder. But for all that she was in charge and could break Bondarenko's serve as easily as snapping a match stick, Kuznetsova's own game looked untidy and in need of some careful attention.
Just as America has the Williams sisters, Scotland has the Murray brothers, so Ukraine has the Bondarenkos. Alona, the older sister by two years and the more successful by 20 ranking places, hit the big time first, but Kateryna, the world No.47, has had her moments this year. She won her first singles title in Birmingham just over a week ago and, together with her sister, began the season by winning the doubles title at the Australian Open.
Still, taking on the fourth seed on Centre Court was another huge step up for Bondarenko and suddenly she found the world's most famous tennis court was a very lonely place indeed. In the twinkling of an eye, she was 3-0 down and unable to put a foot right.
Sitting at the first change of ends, Bondarenko buried her face in her towel. The match was running away from her and she could not run fast enough to catch up with it. Somewhere in the depths of the towel, Bondarenko found the beginnings of a game plan. Starting and ending with “breathe deeply and get the ball in court”, she followed the instructions and tried to make a fight of it. That was enough to snatch one break of serve back, but not enough to stop Kuznetsova wrapping up the set in just 25 minutes.
By this stage, Bondarenko was deep in conversation with herself at every change of ends but whatever advice she was handing out, she clearly was not listening. The second set picked up where the first had left off. Kuznetsova opened proceedings with a break of serve and never looked back. Even when Bondarenko did manage to get a break back, her Russian rival was already two breaks to the good and speeding towards the third round.
If Kuznetsova wants to better her best performance here and go beyond the last eight, she will have some work to do in the coming days. While she eased through against Bondarenko in just 63 minutes, she still managed to notch up 19 unforced errors – 13 of them in the second set. As for her serving, that can only get better than her 44 per cent rating against the Ukrainian.

Tim's report (I was there): Sveta's second-round match
This match followed Marat Safin's surprise straight-sets victory over world no. 3 Novak Djokovic, after which seemingly everybody went off, shellshocked, for their strawberries and cream. Even the Royal Box was almost deserted. So during Sveta's match the stadium was only about a third full, and it only gradually replenished as the match went on (though it soon filled up again during the following match which featured Roger Federer).
Katerina Bondarenko got off to a slow start, with lots of errors, so very soon Sveta was 3-0 up with two breaks of serve. However, Sveta began to make errors of her own, quite apart from two double faults in each of her first two service games (on her way to nine double faults in all). Bodarenko did improve a bit at times. Sveta played well some of the time, but I wouldn't say she did well enough to be a potential Wimbledon champion I'm afraid. She came into the net a few times. Her serve was good when it went in; max. speed about 110 mph. Sveta did give the appearance of being fired-up, judging by her body language. Match time 63 minutes, and for me it was almost an anti-climax, almost too easy, because her opponent gave away too many free points.
So next up, it won't be Alona Bondarenko, who retired injured; instead it will be Barbara Zahlavova-Strycova in the third round against Sveta. Interesting today that Ana Ivanovic on Court 1 took as long to win her match as Marat Safin's and Svetlana's matches combined!
And, for Mary, I did see Amelie briefly, she practiced around 1 p.m., and during her match, which she won, her left thigh was heavily strapped. They play doubles tomorrow (Thu) on Court 19.

Elisabeth
Jun 26th, 2008, 05:53 AM
Good luck to Svetlana and Amelie today!!! :yeah:

not that surprising that Marat won ;) maybe he's been inspired by his sister's recent successes.

We're all hoping, aren't we, that Sveta's birthday will be remembered for all the right reasons, and that she'll have a nice easy win to take her through into the last 16. Back to Court 2, but hopefully not the struggle she had there on Monday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY, SVETA!!! I can only dream about being so young as 23!!!
And I hope she does get to play more matches on grass, even without the doubles. Would be nice if she plays 5 more matches this Wimbledon, including tomorrow ;-)

I see you're quite desperate to watch Sveta's match tomorrow. Well guess what: you're in luck! Net5 has all the wimbledon livestream (incl court 2) available on www.wimbledon2008.nl/ to people in Holland. I think you're even able to watch the matches played earlier on if you click on 'uitslagen' on the lefthand side ;) I hope it works for you too!

As for Sveta, I hope she plays well tomorrow. I think she really needs some extra confidence and maybe a nice win on her birthday will do the trick. After all, it's not going to be easy in her part of the draw..

Светик вперед!!
