...and my dad was so sure of Nastya getting totally trashed by Justine.

Funny thing is that my brother actually watched the match rerun on Eurosport 1 although Germany was playing Sweden live at the same time. He thought the match was really terrific.

She plays on consecutive days all the time at the lower tournaments so it really shouldn't be a factor. If it is then there is really no excuse.

Spunky - what has happened to A-M.com at the moment?

Ola had some problems with the site´s creator and she wanted to move away the site from the server for some time now. She´s found someone who could carry on a-m.com but now it seems it´s just part of a general tennis site. However as no one gave me a warning prior to the change of server, I hope we will have a Nastya-only site soon. I am not exactly happy of the move but it wasn´t my site in the first place. I only wrote for it.

I think it most be a decent court. Philippousis, Schiavone, and Hantuchova are all playing there. Plus Kirilenko and Groenefeld played on it on Tuesday. But I don't know for sure.

Either way its not like anyone wants to see Nastya play. She has never won a slam or anything so why should anyone care about her.

Just hope that Ginepri and Fish take a long time. Then maybe you can see both matches. Otherwise it is a tough call. Probably should go to the Tati match though since she is likely to make a deep run due to her injury and lack of match fitness.

Hmmm... Go to the Nastya match though I say! If I was there, i'd at at her every match, regardless of whoever else was playing! The world would revolve around her whilst she was playing! :hearts:

Hmmm... Maybe if Roddick was playing on another court things could be different though. :tape:

Normally I would agree but I fully expect Nastya to live up to her seeding. I have no idea what Tati will do since she has only played one match in over two months. For that reason I'd want to make sure to see Tati play her first match especially since I fully expect Nastya to win.

Though I am very worried about her match for some reason. Usually her early round matches don't worry me much. But for some reason bad feelings are creeping in my mind that she may lose.

Now picking to watch Roddick over Nastya would be a real mistake. Nastya matches have to be more fun then Roddick matches.

I am a bit nervous about this match too. Nastya better be extremely focused out there today. This will be the most important of her first three matches, if she can find her groove here, things should be fine for the next two.

Still, I don't know what Black is really capable of and a first round match is always tricky - since players have very little chance to practice on the grass courts outside of playing their matches.

Still, if she brings her Eastbourne form to this match today, things should go very smoothly.

Best of luck today, Myskina!

Nastya wearing sleeveless shirt.

Nastya - Black* 1-0

Looking solid, nice forehand exchange in the first game leads to first BP on Black´s serve. Black fights off BP by hitting a nice volley drop shot. You can see she´s a top doubles player. Long service game. Nice FH winner by Nastya crosscourt=> BP2 . Misses by hitting backhand return UE. 3rd BP as Black´s volley goes wide. Nastya converts as Black hits net buttom.

Spunky83
Jun 28th, 2006, 12:56 PM

First time on serve. 30-0 by hitting another great FH winner. She puts a lot of pressure on Black. Good groundies just like against Justine at Eastbourne,. Easy service game to 0.

Spunky83
Jun 28th, 2006, 12:58 PM

Nastya again volleying great. Black pretty helpless. Tries to comes up to the net but Nastya just puts all her power into the shot then. Great serve, not returnable. Unfortunately no 3 love games in a row when she overpowers a FH. Easy going, very chilled out.

Black´s volleying doesn´t really work anymore. Nastya looking really comfortable out there. She´s moving great. Commentators say she´s just continuing what she did in Eastbourne and that´s true. Lovely return FH DTL. Again 3 BPs. Wasting first by BH error. Converst second by hitting BH winner.

Nastya goes to the net and just smashes the ball away. Very confident. Very very very awesome (I am impressed!) Sets up SP. Misses first SP by netting FH. Second serve => Black slice goes long => 19 minutes => 6-0!

Nastya starts by missing BH. Black nets again as Nastya plays groundie near to the baseline with power. Typical for Nastya, she looks at her coach in disgust because of the slightest error. Nastya nets ball, UE. Black goes up 2-1 when Nastya hits return wide.

Nastya wins first point by hitting strong serve which Black can´t return. Nastya smashing, reminds a bit of Sampras´smash dunking;) Looked cool. Black slice fh sails wide. Black still looking helpless on Nastya´s serve. Black hits return into net when another booming Nastya serve came.

Wonderful crosscourt FH winner. No way for Black to return that one. Nastya misses passing shot for like the first time => 15-all. Misses another when Black hits a nice approach shot, very deep slice. Amazing volley winner by Black. Servce and volley. Black getting two GPs. Misses first when Nastya sent Black running from one side to other and then hit wonderful drop shot. 1 GP left: Great serve.

Spunky83
Jun 28th, 2006, 01:26 PM
Nastya* - Black 6-0 3-3

Nastya starts by hitting another great bh passing shot. Always seems like Nastya has a bunch of time deciding what to do with the ball. Serves pretty well too. BH wide => 30-15. Sets up GPs when Black tries to play chip and charge but fails miserably. Nastya hits a volley stretching to the ball in the air. Black has only won 2 points on Nastya´s serve in the second set so far

Nastya just totally puts everything in her forehand and yet again Black can´t help but net the response to that => 30-30. Misses first serve. Black frustrated, talks to umpire, claims serve was in.

Commentators are arguing about who can stop her in her part of the draw...she´s really playing pretty well. Black hits nice volley as Nastya tries to pass her. Nastya´s attempt to play a lob goes wide => 15-30. Nastya very lucky as FH pass clips the net but still goes in => 30-30. Black fh goes wide as Nastya plays approach shot near the baseline.

Nastya* - Black 6-0 2-2

Nastya wins first point by hitting strong serve which Black can´t return. Nastya smashing, reminds a bit of Sampras´smash dunking;) Looked cool. Black slice fh sails wide. Black still looking helpless on Nastya´s serve. Black hits return into net when another booming Nastya serve came.

I thought the same thing when I saw that smash :lol: :lol:
I was very lucky today, I can watch Wimbledon on 4 different channels and luckily one of them was showing the matches of court 18 :D :bounce:
It was a good match IMO, Nastya won easily the 1st set and then in the 2nd she broke Cara when she wanted to do that, in the 9th game. Wonderful BH lob in the last point.

Kuznetsova in her interview in russian press after 1st rnd win on ner birthday:

- Кого пригласили на праздничный ужин?

- Прежде всего Алену Лиховцеву, Настю Мыскину, австралийку Алисию Молик и француженку Амели Моресмо. В Туре это самые хорошие мои подруги.

- То, что вы недавно проиграли Мыскиной в полуфинале турнира в Истборне, на ваши отношения никак не повлияло?

- С моей стороны - нет. С ее, думаю, тоже. Кстати, она показала в Истборне достойную игру. Трава ей неплохо подходит.


Sveta said that she invite only close friends for birthday dinner yesterday: Likhovtseva, Myskina, Molic and Mauresmo.

Seems this company helps Nastya to win today :) :)

Sveta added that she has good relationships with Nastya even losing to her last week in SF , plus she thinks that grass suits to Nastya's game a lot

True, still Myskina often seems to love the doubles competition as a way to relax and have fun on the court.

You know the stat I loved the most? Nastya lost only two points on first serve, that´s a 90% winning percentage (18 out of 20). I think that´s quite astonishing, even Sharapova, Venus and Mauresmo had a lower percentage.

I look forward to the tournament stats after the first round matches are finished. She should rank high up there in several categories.

Yay! I watched Nastya practice yesterday!!! :D
I love Jens!!! - He is so cute - he kept talking to everyone who was watching Nastya (which wasn't many) and asking "how is she looking" etc...he is so friendly!
Nastya, I have to say, was being her usual Nastya-ish self - was getting into a bit of a strop at Jens and getting frustrated when she hit one bad shot now and again...She seemed to be playing really well though - hitting the lines well and moving great. She often just went and sat down on the side of the court (talking to Larisa (the blonde haired woman is Larisa, right?) whilst poor Jens would patiently wait.
Once they'd finished playing, Nastya spent a while lying on the side of the court, whilst Jens stretched her legs, which was cute to watch.
When she finished practicing - suddenly all the autograph hunters pounced - most of them not even knowing who she was.. :smash: :rolleyes:
I got my photo with her though, and wished her luck, so all was good! :D

Afterwards, I don't know where Nastya went, but I saw Jens a bit later chatting to some coach, and then give Dinara a high five, and spending ages talking to her - they seem like they are good friends. He also recognised me from the practice and gave a little smile! ;)

Myskina on Track


©EPA / L. Parnaby

Wednesday, 28 June, 2006


Ninth-seeded Russian Anastasia Myskina had only a little trouble against wild card Cara Black of Zimbabwe in the opening round of the ladies’ singles, winning 6-0, 6-4.

After a closely-fought first game that saw Eastbourne finalist Myskina break serve, the Russian conceded just four more points on her way to winning the set. A combination of strong serves, stronger returns and awesome play at the net put the Russian in the driver’s seat as the match moved into the second set.

But doubles specialist Black was not to be underestimated. She came out serving strongly and quickly took a 2-1 lead. However, Myskina reclaimed her form, winning her next service game to love to even the score.

Games went with serve until the ninth game. At 30-all, having led 30-0, Black tapped the ball against her cap. At the end of the point she showed the same ball to the umpire, to indicate chalk on it from a shot of hers that was called out. The umpire didn’t overrule, and two points later Myskina secured her first break of the set.

With Myskina serving for the match, Black charged the net at every opportunity. Myskina quickly got to grips with the tactic and took the set and the match with a forehand lob deep into the backhand court.

Misses second by netting bh => Deuce. Nastya can´t return a FH, nets the ball => AD Muller. Again Deuce when Muller nets a ball. Not a good game. Long Nastya FH gives Muller another AD.

Great return by Muller => 30-30 despite a good first serve. Good return and drop shot gives Muller first BP. Muller´s returning very well. Good rallie, Nastya plays great angles esp. on bh=> deuce.

Awesome BH winner by Nastya right into the corner => 15-30. Muller with an easy FH error=> 15-40 (2Bps). Muller fights off first by hitting FH DTL winner. Nastya too long fh => DEUCE.

In my opinion Nastya´s too impatient on breakpoints. Let´s see if it changes soon!
Nastya smashes ball away => 0-15. You get to see a lot of smashes of her lately. Muller can´t keep up with the speedy groundies => 0-30. Muller comes up, Nastya plays shot right on her feet => 0-40. 3 BPs: Misses first after long rallie when Nastya can´t return a forehand right on the baseline. 2nd BP: Lucky netcord by Muller. 3rd BP: DAMN IT NASTYA! Take this one! Second serve by Muller. Great return on bh by Nastya => BREAK

Spunky83
Jun 29th, 2006, 12:48 PM
Nastya* vs. Muller 5-2

Nastya is pretty much the player who´s dominating the match. Muller is basically just trying to fight against her. LOL...Nastya was on the total defense, but Muller makes stupid smash error. Again lucky netcord for Muller => 30-30. Return goes out => GP Nastya. Nastya at second serve and now it´s a DF. Very close call, gives Nastya another GP=> Again second serve, Nastya takes game as Muller runs into the ball on the baseline and can´t return. Nastya was playing better yesterday, but today it seems to be pretty much enough.

It seems Nastya is winning comfortably even if she's not playing her best tennis which is a good sign!!

Exactly what I am thinking. She´s definetly playing the ´I am a top player and don´t need to be super awesome, just awesome against worse players´-game :lol:

thank god for the 3rd bp.

hey btw, is anyone experiencing this prob with their scoreboard? i leave match stats open and yet after like a few seconds, it switches and tells me that are no stats for the match. yet when i press match stats again, there's stats and this cycle happens again and again....

Happened to me with the French Open scoreboard. Not having any problems with Wimbledon one.

Nastya* vs. Muller 6-2 1-0

Nastya opens with DF. Muller nets return. Then it´s an awesome FH winner DTL => 30-15. Muller nets bh return as she was surprised by the slice serve. Ace gives Nastya game.

Nastya vs. Muller* 6-2 2-0

Nastya nets FH return on good serve => 15-0. Muller again can´t compete on the fast level Nastya´s playing => 15-15. Muller puts away an easy volley=> 30-15. FH very long by Muller, Nastya looks at linesman but doesn´t say anything => 40-15. Muller´s fh on the run sails wide => 40-30. Nastya comes up to the net, plays a low fh volley which Muller nets => deuce. Long return error by Nastya => AD muller. Nice BH winner after 12 strokes rallie => back to deuce. Muller puts FH out => BP: Muller drop shots not very well but Nastya still nets the ball => deuce: Very well placed FH winner by Nastya => BP2: Strong return by Nastya.

Nastya* vs. Muller 6-2 2-1

Great attack at the net by Muller => 0-15. Nastya´s attempt to drop shot on forehand is really ugly=> 0-30. DF gives Muller 3 BPs: First one fought off when Muller misses a FH. 2nd BP: Muller nets easy BH return. 3rd BP: Awesome return forces Nastya to play a tough bh. And we have the first service game lost of Nastya at Wimbly so far.

Awesome FH passing shot by nastya=> 0-15. Muller nets again => 0-30. Muller is definetly not a match for Nastya. However Nastya misses FH => 15-30. Nastya slips but immediately stands up again, pity she lost the point => 30-30. Muller nets another ball and screams Nein (lol). BP again for Nastya: Nastya hits fh into the net => DEUCE. Great play towards the net by Nastya => BP2. Again too fast for Muller, can´t return properly.

Not really...Nastya was playing, Muller was just responding so nastya had to take her chances otherwise it would have been very very boring. The few unforced errors weren´t that bad. However she should have converted more of the breakchances.

Well, it seems Myskina will have to do all the hard work herself. Too bad, but in currect form she should be able to do so.

I have serious doubts about Dementieva getting past Likhovtseva though. The friendly veteran is really rocking lately - which can't be said of Dementieva.

And on Golovin: don't be too harsch on her - coming back from such a serious injury is always very difficult + she is visible out of form. Because of that - I think she definately did ok - and she showed her great fighting spirit. I am sure she will be back at her level at the US Open.
