Shvedova seems to be finding form lately. I don't follow her career, but I've noticed some progress in recent months. Good win.

Too bad for Kaia...but now pressure of points defense is over. Maybe she can get her form back.

THE SHVED moves on...should beat Rus and maybe more ;)

Yaroslava :worship: Her breakthrough has been long overdue, I hope a player of her talent and work ethic is rewarded when all is said and done. It would be a good idea to skip World Team Tennis this year and focus on improving her ranking because she is too good to be playing qualifying.

It's a bit disappointing for Kanepi, given that she made the QF last year. Like Ballbasher said, I hope she can play without the added pressure of defending these points now and realize her potential.

She won't drop much more than 5 places :shrug:
And I think a ranking around #24-25 is still satisfying! :shrug:

You are poster I like a lot so I do offer commiserations. Never nice to have a fave lose early. I know, happens to me all the time. :lol:

Kaia's recent hip injury might have had something to do with her fading away in the 3rd. I'm sure at some point Kaia will bounce back. But I am still very delighted with that way Yari fought in this match. The 3rd set was great but what really pleased me was that Yari managed to save six set points on her serve in the 1st set. That was the match right there.

Arantxa Rus looks to be a very winnable match now and I'm pretty hopeful Yari will finish this tournament with her 1st career high in almost 2 years. It will be very deserved. I am being to believe this could be the year Yari finally gets into the top 50 where she belongs. :)

Hardly surprising cause Kanepi seemed lost lately (that match against Azarenka in Rome for example :o ).
Nice opportunity for Shvedova, playing Rus in the next round.

Totally agree with all that especially the skipping WTT part. :yeah:

Thanks. ;) :lol:
Well Kaia has been the fave I wanted to at least win a match, but once Qs were placed, I expected this loss! Kaia has been bad on clay this year, I don't know if it was because of her injury or because of the pressure, probably because of both! And now she runs into Shvedova, who has been coming back lately, I just hope Shvedova continues her run to R3, she definetely belongs higher and I can just congratulate her for a good win ;)

She drops from 18th to 21st, not too much actually :lol: Though she will move down more depending on how the players ranked lower then her do.

Mixed feelings about this one, I feel bad for Kaia going out in 1r after her great showing last year, but I'm happy for Jarka scoring a big win. She has a decent shot at making a nice run here and I hope she takes advantage of it. :yeah:
