i understand that is isn't the most well-known russian and her results haven't been that great so far, but she is a pretty good player and is starting to play a bit more on the challenger circuit. everytime i see her in a tournament i want to come into the russian roulette and wish her good luck but there isn't a thread for her (that i can see). so, anyone else think she should have a thread (not a whole forum but i think she should have a thread like this)?

Apr 13th, 2003, 10:30 AM
she's just too inconsistent
plays the wrong shot at the wrong time.
needs to work on that.
she frustrates me, she should be doing alot better than she has.

go Nina :)

May 12th, 2003, 01:48 AM
c'mon nina.

where is she off to next?

Jun 27th, 2003, 08:32 AM

Nina has reached the quarter-finals of a $10k Challenger event in the netherlands. keep going!

May 4th, 2004, 01:50 AM
she just reached the final of a challenger taking out a couple of seeds on the way. she lost to muller in the final.

May 4th, 2004, 03:55 AM
since this thread was last seen, she's won 2 10k's :kiss: :worship:

Nina's had a pretty good 2004, shown alot of improvement this yr

she's gonna crack top 300 when next ranks come out, and not much to defend for rest of yr

she got a Special Exempt (SE) for making Taranto final, meaning no qualies for her in Catania, but she plays Virginie Razzano, #1 seed in r1.

good luck Nina ;)

Nina Bratchikova

May 4th, 2004, 03:59 AM
Nina is two days younger than Sveta. She turns 19 on June 28. It's not easy at that age.
It's expensive to travel, if you're not a child prodigy.

May 18th, 2004, 04:00 PM
Nina B plays 25k Beijing this week :)

5th seed

good luck Nina :)

and name of this thread should be altered ;)

May 31st, 2004, 09:50 PM
Nina made SF of 25k Tongliao last week
after going out in 1st rd the week b4 in Beijing :mad:

should be in action this week in 25k Wulanhaote

Nina/Anna B lost in doubles final :sad:

Jul 7th, 2004, 04:09 PM
Nina's closing in on top 250 :D :)
since me been away

made QF in Bastad :) but had a bad loss to Tvaroskova :fiery:

and then a 1st rd in Mont-de Marsan :sad:

this week Nina is in Darmstadt
and plays Valentina Sassi
best wishes Nina :wavey: :bounce:

Jul 7th, 2004, 07:32 PM
Nina Bratchikova d. Valentina Sassi 6-2, 6-1 :)
Getting closer to the US-Open Qual :)

Jul 7th, 2004, 08:41 PM
Nina :yeah: :woohoo:
great score :)

Jul 8th, 2004, 10:01 PM
Nina lost, don't think she'll be playing the US-OPen Qual. On the contrary 2 added 25 K's in Russia during the US-Open. She must have a very good chance to play the Aus-Open Qual next year.

Jul 8th, 2004, 10:05 PM
Nina :sad: tough draw :( 2-6 6-7(3) to Asa Svensson :(

good luck Nina in next event :)

Jul 11th, 2004, 07:30 AM
GO NINA! keep moving that ranking up!

Jul 11th, 2004, 07:55 AM

Jul 16th, 2004, 09:12 PM
Nina plays Palermo Tier V qualies

good luck Nina ;)
1st match vs Tatsiana Uvarova (BLR)
a tough one

best of luck Nina ;)

Jul 16th, 2004, 10:20 PM
Good luck Nina give it your best shot. Rather see Nina playing the 2 added 25 K's in Russia than the US-Open Qual.

Jul 17th, 2004, 01:10 AM
good luck nina! i think she has a chance in the first match c'mon nina!

Jul 17th, 2004, 07:09 PM
Bad news Nina lost. That'll be it for the US-Open Qual. More important are the 2 added Russian 25 K's.

Jul 17th, 2004, 08:09 PM
Nina :sad: :crying2:
that wasn't a good draw for her :(

Jul 18th, 2004, 02:22 AM
bad draw, just make the oz open qualies nina

Aug 4th, 2004, 05:48 PM
She's on the Moscow 25 K.

Possibly the first 3/4 seeds are going to withdraw. A few players what's on the cards will withdraw from the US-Open Main Draw/Qual. There's a chance for Nina and Ekaterina to have a very good tournament. If both are on the opposite half of draw and reach the final. Unless first round exits one after another the Aus-Open Qual are guaranteed

Aug 5th, 2004, 01:43 AM
good luck nina!

Aug 7th, 2004, 09:26 PM

Terrible loss to Geznenge. Nina then take adv. of the new 25 K's in Russia

Aug 24th, 2004, 01:49 PM
She plays Moscow 25 K. This week.
This is her draw
5-Ekaterina Bychkova RUS vs WC Ekaterina Kosminskaya RUS
Tina Schiechtl AUT vs Melanie Marois CAN
q-Olena Antypina UKR vs Maria Goloviznina RUS
Anna Bastrikova RUS vs 4-Nina Bratchikova RUS ( @draw)

Bad draw for the Russians and this draw I am afraid does't bring the Russian players closer to the Aus-Open Qual top 250/500 ect. Hopefully one will take adv. from this terrible draw

Aug 24th, 2004, 02:21 PM
good luck Nina ;)
chance to hit top 250 :)

Sep 1st, 2004, 11:59 AM
Nina back on winning ways. Reached the second round :)

Sep 2nd, 2004, 09:42 PM
Only remaining Russian player left. Good luck in the semis. For the rest of the season just avoid the first round exits.

Sep 4th, 2004, 02:14 PM
Went to the semis and lost. Just a few more perf. like this and we'll see where she'll end up this year. As for her ranking some above ranked players are going to retire.

Sep 4th, 2004, 03:20 PM
Nina :sad: :( but that was a tough match
not checked the lists yet but i hope Nina plays in Georgia (25k and 50k events)

Sep 15th, 2004, 02:39 PM
Nina into QF of 25k Beijing event :D :)
go Nina go ;) a few more wins and it could be a trip down under ;)

hopefully Nina might sneak into qualies of the Beijing WTA event next week ;)

Sep 15th, 2004, 02:57 PM
Just be injury free for the rest of the season. And it probably won't come to the wire. Very good chance not to play the december Challengers :D and take some rest.

Oct 9th, 2004, 12:35 AM
good luck nina!!!

Oct 10th, 2004, 10:43 AM
Yesterday was the first time I watched her playing. Fun to watch the way she plays, but obviously not vs. Elena Vesnina. The improvement to make just keep the ball a little longer in play. Against Elena the fireworks came from her but Nina hardly managed 3 rally's. But Nina has potential.

Oct 25th, 2004, 04:55 PM
Nina's in the Main Daw of 50000$ Shenzhen China. Good luck there.

Oct 28th, 2004, 01:18 PM

Nov 3rd, 2004, 08:43 PM
Good win. Keep your hard shots in play and Nina will reach the QF's. On her way to her first GS-Qual. :D

Nov 14th, 2004, 07:04 PM

well done Nina :D :)
good luck in r2 vs Gabriela Velasco-Andreu or Carla Suarez.

Nov 15th, 2004, 05:43 PM
Good win, all Nina needs for down under just avoid the first round exits. :D Only the surface is very disappointing. :o and this indoors.

Nov 17th, 2004, 05:08 PM
Nina qualified for the QF's. She won in 3 sets, happily against a clay courter. Down Under calling.

Nov 17th, 2004, 08:10 PM
well done Nina :)
good win over 16 yr old Carla Suarez

now she's up against #3 seed Pous Tio
thats gonna be extremely difficult on clay :(

good luck Nina :)

Dec 17th, 2004, 09:16 PM
latest news on Nina

Nina is currently 15th on the alternate list for Aus Open :( :sad:
thats still some way off :(

dunno if she will make it in or if she will even make the trip.
you dont want to travel 10,000 miles and not get in.

thats why alot of players dont travel there.

Dec 17th, 2004, 09:25 PM
Nina deserves better. :(

Dec 18th, 2004, 02:25 AM
going to oz and not play does take a lot of uneccessary costs out of the players budget, hoping she'll make it but RG qualies will be good.

Jan 4th, 2005, 11:46 PM
Nina's now just 2 places outside qualies

a week to go
she's got a pretty good chance to get in :)

Jan 5th, 2005, 08:38 AM

M. Washington's the fav. to win. Nina deserves credit for doing it the hard way. As well it's the best way to make progress, and it'll pay off soon. Her loss wasn't disappointing, kinda expected.

Jan 12th, 2005, 07:56 AM

she's got the talent

Nina better make good use of her slam qualies
RG and Wimbledon.

needs to be inside top 200 soon.

Apr 1st, 2005, 05:58 PM
Nina on the Qual list to play Dinan next week. It's on Clay Indoor :o In the same week there's an indoor carpet tournament 10 K. :o Indoors is rather to play on Carpet than clay. In future we'll have more indoor clay tournaments than carpet :o Anyway good luck Nina, at least it isn't clay outdoors in the Southern part of Europe. Hopefully Nina won't play the red clay tournaments in the Southern part of Europe.

Apr 1st, 2005, 07:59 PM
Nina has a 1st rd bye
then probably Butkiewicz in r2

good luck Nina :)

its better to play a 75k qualies than any 10k event.

Apr 3rd, 2005, 07:45 PM
Nina on her way to the Main Draw, job done. :) One match away from the Main Draw.

May 15th, 2005, 06:17 PM

Jul 10th, 2005, 07:34 PM
From what read, Nina's sure of a place in Main Draw. Though, Nina can't rest on her laurels. She'd better win, needs the points desperately before the US-Open cut-off. Nina got her much needed win :D

Jul 11th, 2005, 05:38 PM
Job done. Still needs a first round win. Would give her more than 50/50 to make US-Open Qual. Provided with the same draw as last year, where the lowest ranked was around 250th. :D Nina's a better chance than last year.

Jul 12th, 2005, 05:20 PM
Nina Bratchikova d. Louise Doutrelant 64 46 61 :banana: :hug:

Jul 12th, 2005, 05:45 PM
Well done Nina, you never know give her a good chance to def. Magda. She's improving on clay. Let's keep fingers crossed the lowerst to play US-Open Qual is around 250th as it was last year. Though, this rather should happen at Wimbly. Good luck Nina :)

(3)Matea Mezak vs. (Q)Veronika Kapshay
Nadejda Ostrovskaya vs. (Q)Olga Panova

Nina Bratchikova vs. Irina Kuzmina
(7)Vasilisa Bardina vs. (LL)Ekaterina Ivanova

Depends which Nina turns up. She could well pass anybody in her quarter and make it to the semis vs. probably Nastya Yakimova. If Nina shows what she's made of, she'll be able to make Semis, but can't see Nina beating Nastya Yakimova. Good luck Nina

Feb 17th, 2006, 04:39 PM
As for Nina very good chance to play the GS-Qual. Think for Nina it's very important to get some grass under your belt before Wimbly. And of course to participate in the American Summer Circuit bef. US-Open. The surface of the US-Open should suit her. After the US-Open to focus on the indoor season. Another option is to focus on the Asian tour too. One good illustration to get your ranks up were from Z. Linetskaya in 2004. Zhenya didn't play a single tournament on Red Clay.

Feb 17th, 2006, 05:08 PM
Nina won her QF 61 61 vs Johansson :woohoo: ;) :yeah: :D :)

Feb 20th, 2006, 08:17 PM
Nina surprisingly playing 25 K. Qual. In first round did the main thing, won't leave the tournament with no points. :) Doesn't have much to defend till when she reached the final of 75 K. or so. Has a good chance to make top 200 this year.

Nina managed double win, after singles follows doubles. :) In second consecutive SF. Nina def. one of the fav. to win the tourney. Very satisfying last two challengers. I see the Moscow 25 K. is during the week of US-Open Qual. Whatever Nina decides if she wants to play Moscow then don't mind she plays on clay. If she makes US-Open Qual, then hope it's her last clay tournament. Don't know when the US-Open cut-off is hopefully not as quick as the Wimbly cut-off :o

Nina into 25 K. final :bounce: 17 more points added on Eggy's ranking. Has the choice between playing US-Open Qual or Moscow 25 K. :) Both is fine though hope more Nina opts for Moscow. For the rest of the season hope she plays the KC-Qual. At least she sells tickets. The more Russians in KC the more tickets will be sold. Last years mistakes shouldn't be repeated. Lowerranked hometown players sell more tickets than Patty. Hopefully no special treatment/no forcing players/go by ranking at this years KC. Lowerranked players deserve more rights esp. playing in their hometown.

Jul 13th, 2006, 05:45 PM
$25,000 Dnepropetrovsk where Nina is 2nd seed. The US-Open entries are on the 17th of July. Once again way too early :o The Challenger is played on clay. Think best for Nina going for the Moscow 25 K. instead of US-Open Qualies. Don't mind Nina plays on clay till Moscow 25K, but then Nina shouldn't go for the US-Open Qual. For Moscow, undoubtedly Nina's the potential to win it. Don't think Alisa/Vaslisa/Nastya P. will be participating. So it's good a chance for Nina to at least improve your ranking. No points to defend from last year 1rd exit US-open and 1st round exit at the other 25 K. in Russia. Good luck Nina. :)

Jul 20th, 2006, 04:59 PM
Nina keeps on winning very comfortable scoreline. The form she's in she could go all the way. :)

Jul 20th, 2006, 07:27 PM

Nina INTO Semis for the third consecutive time. :bounce: :bounce: :) Were things posted in here about US-Open. But it's complicated, no signals whether Nina is on the US-Open Qual list. Anyway hope Nina plays Moscow cause Nina is better prepared for Moscow than US-Open.
For Nina of course unlikely she gets a KC-Qual WC but let's keep fingers crossed the 250th plays the Qual. Financially it's best for the KC and more tickets will be sold than last year.

Jul 21st, 2006, 09:23 PM
Nina ;) :banana: :D :)
she's closing in on top 200 :D :)

keep the form going in semi tomorrow

Jul 22nd, 2006, 09:27 PM
Today pretty disappointing loss for her standards. But performed very consistently in the past 3 Challengers. :) Looks like Nina is well-prepared for Moscow. Nothing is better than being fully-prepared in your hometown challenger. Unlikely Nina will opt for US-Open, else she'd have played already one or two US-HC's Challengers.

Jul 22nd, 2006, 09:39 PM

Nina has cracked the top 200 :) A few more good challengers should make sure of playing all the GS-Qualies next year. Ninok when her game is on lovely to watch. Even though she's currently in the top 200 she's more potential than that. Has better all court game than a few top 50 ranked players.

Aug 23rd, 2006, 09:36 PM
Played US-Open Qual lost in 3 sets to V. Henke. Should have won in straight sets. For Nina it's about to learn a few things, was right about Moscow would be more suitable for her. Needs better schedule too. On positive note Nina makes up after bad performances. Onto the next challenger.

Ninok still on this weeks 75 K. list in States. Rather Ninok played this kind of tournaments just before the US-Open. This kind of things can make a difference between first round Qual exit or 2/3 round.

Of course difficult draw first round vs. Woerle good chance to survive first Qual round. Focus concentrate just avoid the off-day. Would be glad Nina makes second Qual round hopefully vs. Bychkova. Though vs. Bychkova talent wise Katya's the edge. Nina has to rely Katya and her show what they're made of in first round then Nina has to rely on Katya not playing her best. My pick Nina makes second round Qual unfortunately no further. Good luck Nina in your hometown.
