A knee injury is the last thing she needs now that she's so close to getting into the top 32 and has very few points to defend until the end of season. :sobbing:

I hope they skipped the third week of training as a precaution but it doesn't sound too promising when her coach is speaking as negatively as that saying she may lose in the first round. Playing doubles doesn't make much sense either if she's carrying an injury so close to USO.

Giving Jies current form Elena definitely has a chance. She canned Ágnes but the stats were not convincing for me. I say Elena in 3 :)

What stats were they? She only lost 5 points on her own serve and Agnes won 1 game despite having over 70% over her first serves in. You must be a real perfectionist :lol:

I would of taken any sort of win before the match given her injury problems she's had recently.

allrounder
Aug 4th, 2009, 10:49 PM
It was like 50% 1st serves :unsure:
I think you need to be a bit more realistic though. Your talking as if she's a top 5 player with a great allround game playing against someone she was expected to thrash. She's ranked 34 in the world and beat someone 6-1 6-0 who was ranked above her in what was expected to be a very tough match. She lost 5 points on serve in the entire match and 2 of those were double faults and you're still finding a way to criticise her serving :confused:

She's never been a great server but it's certainly not as big a weakness as it used to be and has been part of the reason she's done so well this year.

Ciarán
Aug 4th, 2009, 11:05 PM

Lena V should definitely be able to beat Zheng. Zheng needed three sets to beat slumping Savchuk has she hasn't looked the same player this season, with some below-par results on grass and a wobbly start to the hardcourts.

I really think Vesnina could be top-20 soon :D

I knew something must have been wrong :sad: She won way too few points in the third set and it was over so quickly :awww:

But at least she's got today off, so maybe she'll feel better on Friday for her doubles match. If not I'm sure she'll give WO or ret. during the match. She's done this before in doubles when she picked up a legitimate injury.

If she can just get past Chaky it'l at least be another useful 40 points on her ranking although that won't be easy but Lena should go in as favourite if her back is totally fine. Anything extra than that with this draw would be a bonus although she did run Vika close in Indian Wells so she's shown she's very capable of competing with her.

Really bad.

4-6 2-6 against clay court queens....

I don't know about you guys, but tbh I'm a little disappointed about her hard court season thus far.
It's just slightly better in comparison to last year, when she concentrated on doubles and couldn't play any worse in singles.
For this year I just expected more than this. I guess this goes for the most of us, and not in the least for herself.
She has a big chance to make it to the Top-30 but this chance is slowly fading..

So I have this crazy idea to hearten her up and to show our support by sending her some flowers on behalf of her fans here. She'll definitely like this and hopefully this small gesture will give her strength to give an amazing performance in Toronto.
If you like this idea and you have any suggestions for a message just let me know, they will be most welcome..
