I thought Bethanie deserved a cheering thread for all her upcoming tournaments leading up to the US Open. With her recent results and her rise in the rankings I am really excited about her chances to make some noise in North America.

Here's to a fun upcoming roadtrip..glad to be along for the ride!! :bounce:

Congrats on Rd 1 win and good luck next round vs Vaidisova or Morita!!

Anyways..good luck Bethanie!!

Just got done reading it..great report, very detailed. Good to hear she is looking good in practice and finding ways to win.
Sorry the tournament sounds just awful...try to enjoy though and keep the reports coming.

Ugh, Bethanie isn't doing so hot right now. She won the first set, now she's trailing Yuan 0-3. :o She's had her chances to win a game and get on the board.

Serving is just horrible in this match from the stats.

Bethanie: Winning 45% of 1st serves, 43% of second serves. 1st serve percentage is 82%
Meng: Winning 55% of 1st serves and 15% of second serves. 1st serve percentage is 77%

Score so far: 6-2, 0-4 Step it up Beth!!!

Helloooooo Mattek Maniacs. Happy to Bethanie won after giving me a huge headache but she still wins and advances to the semi-finals! 6-2, 7-5 Congrats Bethanie!!

And this thread should really be moved up. I mean she's under Vania King and Ashley Harkleroad. :rolleyes:

And Alexandra Stevenson. :vomit:

Way to fight and make it to the semis Bethanie!! Her first Tier II semi and hopefully her first final!!

I agree young gunner, I was thinking the same thing...no way Bethanie should be behind King and especially Stevenson. How can we get her moved up?? She has earned it.

This draw wasn't exactly a walk in the park, she had Chaky and Vaidasova in her quarter. She can take anyone on! :armed:

Does anyone know why her and Sania retired their doubles match?

Indytennis
Jul 27th, 2008, 04:17 AM
Not sure I was wondering the same thing..I heard the commentators talking about blisters on someones feet b4 the start of Jelena/Safina and I thought they were talking about Bethanie or Flavia. So dont know if that had something to do with it.

Tough draw for Beth at this final leg of her Roadtrip. Domachowska first up who she just lost to in straights in Montreal. She is also in the top heavy section of the draw. Hopefully she will have some revenge on her mind and also be healthy and back in good form.

Great news! I hope she has fully recovered from her injury :D:bounce:

Regardless of what happens, I think she is here to stay at the top. She knows what it takes to get there. Right now, injuries are holding her back but not her head. But she will find a way to get through it and make the adjustments for next year where I believe she will have a consistent year and balance in all tournaments. This year is peaks and valleys for her and really the first time, she has achieved real international fame with Wimbledon and is learning to handle it.

Tough 2nd rd. loss today agst Cornet 7-6, 6-1. I was hoping she could make a run here at the US Open but she came in with little match play after being injured and Cornet came it with some confidence.
I think if Beth couldve pulled out that first set she would've pulled this one out..hope she will keep improving though and finish the year strong!!
