The draw looks good, hopefully she plays better without the pressure of having points to defend. It is not like Brianti or Oprandi can't play, she needs to play well.


Good luck :).

Prior to this match Voskoboeva had won only 1 match against a top 30 ranked player and that was in the 1st round of New Haven back in 2006 when Chakvetadze retired down 6-5 in the 2nd set. She also won the 1st set 6-4 against Mauresmo in the next round but lost the remaining 2 sets 6-1 and 6-2 and won the 2nd set 6-4 against Sharapova in the 2nd round in Doha in 2008 but lost the 3rd set 6-1. Besides those 3 matches she'd never won a set against a top 30 player.

Maria has said in previous interviews she does not believe in it--sports pscyhologists. She has said you are either born with it or not. However, if someone can convince her people like Lance Armstrong, Andre Agassi and Maria Sharapova have greatly benefited from working with a sports psychologists perhaps she will change her mind. I gather she is quite stubborn and head strong as most female athletes and actors are.

What a way to lose that 2nd MP. Galina was in massive trouble after the service return, it looked done and dusted. Other two points were cheap errors too, but I guess this happens in tennis. Good on Galina for hanging in there though, she never dropped her head and was rewarded. Thanks for posting Nikki.
