Bojana returned home

Fifth seed of this year’s Serbia Open had her first training today on the courts of the Tennis Center Novak. Best Serbian tennis player ,Bojana Jovanovski, has got a first round BYE, and will start her campaign in the second round against the winner of the match between Russian Vera Zvonareva and Serb Vesna Dolonc.

“I am really looking forward to playing in my city in front of my home crowd. Its going to be a great event. I invite everyone to come and watch some pro tennis,” said Jovanovski.

After the practice, Bojana was signing autographs for her fans and she gave an interview to CNN television, whose crew arrived in Belgrade for the report about the best Serbian tennis player.

Serena Time

http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Sony+Ericsson+WTA+Tour+Rome+Day+Four+EyhYk9uu5msl. jpg

Serena Williams from the United States of America discussed her choice of tournament this week and her result in Hamburg. When asked about why she decided to go oversea after her final in Amelia Island, Serena answered: "I wanted to get some red clay practice in as soon as possible. My time in Amelia Island was awesome. Making my very first final...against my sister was an honor. I was genuinely happy for her. But it was time for me to jump to red clay and get as much practice on this surface in order to get a good preparation for Roland-Garros."

http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Sony+Ericsson+WTA+Tour+Rome+Day+Four+tuT5M9kTa50l. jpg

Serena was also asked about her recent performance in Hamburg, where she displayed some of her best tennis despite winning the title. "Making the semifinal is cool, but I felt so good coming off my first two matches, I definitely thought I would beat Alize. It was my tournament to win and I lost it. Next time I'll be much better under pressure. Promise ;). It's about time for SERENA-TIME." Serena is now expected in Belgrade, Serbia where she will partner with Heather Watson of Great Britain.

I have arrived in Belgrade this morning. It really seems to be a wonderful city :)
I had pretty good start on the WWW TOUR but I'm kinda disappointed with my recent results. I was really well prepared for AO but unfortunately I got an suspension from the ITF and unfortunately couldn't play there at all. Since then I'm rarely winning more than one match per tournament but that's going to change now.I have prepared new strategy with my coach and I expect it to work well. We will see.
I also have plans to play doubles with Christina again but I didn't meet her here yet. As you can see I have had an interview with FDR today. :)

Vera just happy to be playing.

Recently, Russian tennis player Vera Zvonareva has been having a tough time on the court, and since winning her maiden title in Cairo, has struggled to meet expectations. We caught up with her at the Belgrade event to talk about how she feels about her game and dealing with expectations.

Vera, what was it like to be the first winner of a P5 event this year?
It was a really great week for me, and a great feeling. I had a lot of tough matches, and pulled through them all to collect my first, and to date, only title. Winning such a big event at the time, definitely built up some expectations of myself to perform.

Talking about expectations, how do you feel since then you've dealt with not achieving the same results?
Well you know, it was tough at first, I mean missing a few weeks with a shoulder injury I picked up in Dubai, particularly just after winning my title, was tough, and to play injured at the Australian Open was a sad moment for me, as I was really looking forward to performing on a big stage. I guess regarding the expectations, I initially got frustrated that, when I reached no.3 in the world, that my performances were poor, and I couldn't capitalise on my good form. Then in Indian Wells and Miami in particular, I haven't been able to back up good wins, and that's another frustrating thing. I really began to build up a lot of pressure on myself about these losses, but I feel as though recently I've started to deal a lot better with my approach to tournaments, and the results are again coming back.

So how do you feel you'll go in Belgrade this week?
Well, I'm looking forward to it, I mean I've just come from the green clay events, and I feel I was really close to getting to the finals there, having 3 set losses in the semis, but you know, I definitely feel like I'm closing the gap between myself and the top players now, and this week in Belgrade there is such a quality field, that this is a real indicator of who's going to perform well at the upcoming big events. I'm just really happy to be competing again, and I'm enjoying my tennis.

Looking forward, what are your goals for the remainder of the clay season?
Well, I think a big goal of mine is to get back into the top 10. I've been around 11 and 12 for a few weeks now and I really feel being back there is such a good thing. I also want to continue to make the latter stages of events, so I'm looking to hopefully get a few more SFs and Fs and you know, winning a tournament would be nice too.

Misa Krajicek looking to end losing streak in Belgrade

http://i47.tinypic.com/2ld7eqt.jpg

WWW World Number 1, Michaella Krajicek, has had an up and down season so far. The big-serving Dutchwoman started off well, reaching the final in Cape Town, winning Dubai and capturing her 1st Grand Slam title at the Australian Open. However, she had numerous early exits in her last tournaments, being beaten by Serena Williams and Melanie Oudin in her last 2 matches on the green clay.

Misa, How are you doing at the moment?

Apart from the loss of form I'm experiencing I'm fine, thank you :)

Have you prepared for this tournament any differently, comparing to your last 2 tournaments?

Well, Belgrade is a red clay tournament. Amelia Island and Charleston are green clay tournaments, and the difference in surfaces is pretty considerable. The ball is moving a slower than on the green clay. Looking at that, it may be a disadvantage for me. I like grass and indoors the best, but I will try anyway to return to form here :)

Why do you prefer grass and indoor courts to clay courts?

My weapons are just a lot more effective on fast surfaces. My serve is less effective on the clay, and I like to play aggressively with my groundstrokes. That's hard on clay, where you have to play long points and run a lot. I'm still working on my fitness but that's definitely one of the aspects I could improve on.

Do you change your strategy on a clay court?

Not really, I still try to keep to points as short as possible. I try to add some spin to my groundstrokes to pull my opponents out wide, so I can finish off at the net. We'll see how that works out this week :)

What are your thoughts on the draw?

I have a bye in the 1st round so that gives me some time to keep practising hard and getting the details right. 2nd round vs. Petkovic or Jankovic. I don't remember playing either of them. Both of them are tough opponents, so I will have to bring my A-game. I hope I'll manage to do just that :)

Thanks for the interview and good luck!

Thanks! :)

McHale prepared for Belgrade!
http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Christina+Mchale+Western+Southern+Open+Day+_bAeeNF IHJTl.jpg
Christina McHale, the sensation from America, have arrived in Belgrade, where she prepared last week in Charleston for that.
"Belgrade is big, nice town. I think that results are coming, but I would like to be in Belgrade." said Christina. She won doubles competition in Charleston. "After losing my match against Venus, I suggested Oudin to play doubles, and we win the doubles. Hard work pays off. It was incredible moment in my career." corresponds McHale.
Christina has already gone, she will meet her fans from Belgrade. After that, she must train for next match. Her opponent in first round is Maria Sharapova.

Pumped-up Pierce

http://www.mary-pierce.org/RG_1999/1027625.jpg

WWW Tour's new star Mary Pierce had an impressive tour debut last week in Hamburg, falling to eventual runner-up Alize Cornet. Pierce managed to win a set off her heavily favoured compatriot and looks forward to continuing to improve throghout the rest of the season,

Hamburg was an amazing first tournament, I never had expected to win a game let alone a match!

Mary arrived in Belgard yesterday and is excited for what may come from the tournament

Obviously I'm excited to be here...a new tournament and a brand new challenge. I'm just, you know, excited to be playing

Pierce will open her campaign against Natalija Kostic, a young Serb who is surely to have the crowd behind her and then a potential clash with the third seeded Myskina in the 2nd round looms, but Mary is not to be deterred by these challenges.

It will be tough but, you know, I just need to go out there, start swinging and play my game...hope for the best.

Melanie Oudin arrives in Belgrade

http://t2.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcQeFT6mMchWVVkoe6DEjCNbgRnYPGMRA HvvPXC9Py-xMx9HYaBQ7Q

Rising American star Melanie Oudin arrived in Belgrade last night. Oudin has been steadily increasing by advancing to the semi finals in Charleston last week before eventually falling to red hot Venus Williams 6-1 0-6 6-3. The veteran proved to good in the third set, but Melanies progress throughout the year was truly displayed, especially in the dominating second set. Oudin came back out and won back to back matches with her best friend Christina McHale to take the doubles title 2-6 6-1 6-4 in the final.

Press Conference with Melanie Oudin earlier this morning:

"First of all let me just say how sorry and embarrassed I am for not entering this beautiful tournament on time. I am so thankful I was able to get in as an alternate, and look forward to a winnable first round match against Timea Babos. I dont look ahead in the draw so I am unaware of who I might play in the second round. But back to Charleston I was so proud of myself after winning that second set 6-0 against Venus that I kind of had a mental lapse in the third. I was still able to make the match very competitive which is an improvement from my 6-3 6-0 or something beat down from Cornet a few weeks ago. I also won the doubles title in Charleston with my best friend Christina although we had never played a pro match together! I really am looking forward to playing in this tournament and I love how much attention from the press I am getting. Talk to you guys again soon hopefully!!"

Hey yall! I'm so excited to be the one holding a blog this week for the WWW tour. I arrived in Belgrade on sunday after my semifinal lost in Hamburg! I've been practicing a lot awaiting my first match against local favorite Aleksandra Krunic. This should be a tough one as the crowd will be behind her. Definitely looking forward to it! You guys better tune in today. I'm playing around 4pm on Central Court.

http://www1.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Serena+Williams+2012+French+Open+Qualifying+dGsPwF hQFfkl.jpg

Yay! I won! Woots woots! I was so "In The Zone" today. It's my 3rd double bagel in two weeks! This is crazy. I was hitting shots I didn't even know I could hit. I was just very focused and relaxed. It was a truly awesome day for me at work. If that's any indication for the rest of the tournament, then it's a very good one. Obviously, I have to stay focus and make sure I keep it up. But for today, I'm calling it off. I'll be having a casual diner and some stretching with my trainer Esther to make sure I'm ready to go tomorrow. In that regard, I'm playng my doubles partner Heather tomorrow! I'm thrilled about it, but I know this will be a tough one. Not only because she's a really good player, but also because she means a lot to me. She's a great person and I like her very much. So whatever happens, I guess the outcome will be a happy one :).

Tomorrow, I'll be answering some of your questions. If you guys have any, keep sending them to me. I'll storm through them and try to answer as much as possible. I'll make sure I read every single one of them ;). I love it when you guys go out of the box with the questions so be as crazy as possible!! Good night yall xx.

Serena's Blog: Day 3 Q&A

http://www3.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Serena+Williams+Sony+Ericsson+WTA+Tour+Rome+2POSz3 DwA8Jl.jpg

What's been your best memory so far on the WWW tour?

Making the final of Amelia Island has been awesome! I loved the whole setting - being in a final, in the US, against my sister and giving the spectators quite a good show. It goes to show that women's tennis is great and that Venus and I can bring a lot to the tour. Also all those finals in doubles are great add ups. They sure helped me improve my game and ease my way onto the professional tour.

Who's your main rival on the tour?

I have so many as I'm not the best ranked player out there, but let's say Alize Cornet, because she's had my number more than once. Three times actually. It's hard on my confidence, but I still believe I'm the best out there, so hopefully I'll beat her very soon!

How does it feel to beat your partner and then having to go back on the court with her to play doubles?

Honestly, I didn't think about it. It's business time when you get out there. There's no such time for these thoughts. Plus we had like an hour in between. Just the time to have a quick shower and change my clothes. So yeah I didn't reflect much on the match and its consequences on our partnership. I think we did pretty good on top of that. We defeated fairly easily the actual number 1 and number 8 in singles.

What's always playing on your Ipod recently?

Green Day obviously!!! You guys know my love for Green Day :)! I've also been listening to a lot of Coldplay - Paradise, The Scientist, Fix You - and some Justin Bieber - As Long As You Love Me and Boyfriend - ! Love these!

What are you studying ?

I've been studying fashion for over 8 years, but being on the junior and pro circuits and stuff makes it hard to finish the degree in 3 to 4 years, so yeah I'm still studying that, but I should be graduating this year! I'm also studying to become a nail technician!

http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_6fPFbBdIXI0/TNB8bxfF_1I/AAAAAAAAAf0/e6qkus_CSM0/s1600/serena-williams-oprah-nails.jpg

Off to bed I am! Was great answering all your questions. Thanks for the great questions and kind words! Today was a great win, but I have to be back in full strength tomorrow as I have to play singles QF and doubles SF as well. Can't wait ;).

Hey folks! I'm in the final in singles WOOTS WOOTS! I'll be playing my Fed Cup teammate Melanie Oudin!! This will be good. She's improved so much...just like me. Hopefully we'll be able to produce some high quality tennis. Sorry for not updating you on day 4. I was pretty busy defeating Anastasia Myskina and Anne Keothavong :drool: ! On top of that, I had to play my doubles SF, but yeah we lost...to same team we lost to last week :sad: ! Anyways, Heather and I will be making some adjustements next week, don't worry!

I don't know if I'll have much time to blog after the final, but I want you guys to know that I really enjoyed blogging this week and answering some of your questions! Be sure that I'll be doing this again :)

xoxo

How about posting questions for next tournament already, so those who are eliminated can send for next tournament while play is still on here .
That would also make smaller gaps between two tournaments.
