:inlove: I think, I'm in love with Maria. :inlove:

The first time I met her in person (Bali, September 2003), I saw a beautiful but energic lady flirting with a friendly passion to her fans. :smooch:

She found that she is loved by the Indonesian tennis (especially Angelique Widjaja's) fans. For our support she paid by playing an enthusiastic and tremendous tennis against the powerful Elena Dementieva.

She lost that day, but she has shown us the meaning of relentless effort. She's a great fighter on the court. :hatoff:

Six weeks go by without seeing Maria and Angie pairing in a tournament. I really miss her. :sad:

:hug: Maria, will you come by? We love and miss you so much. :tears:

The smooth groundstrokes of Venezuelan Maria Vento-Kabchi have taken her to a WTA Tour singles final at Gold Coast in January 1998, a career-high ranking of No.31 later that year and nearly $1 million in career earnings.

And while the now-29-year-old boasts two Top 50 year-end finishes in 1997 and 1998, she’s ended the past four seasons outside the Top 100 and the past two below the Top 150.

But that looks set to change. Vento-Kabchi has placed a new emphasis on off-court training, working with renowned physical trainer Pat Etcheberry, whose gruelling workouts have brought world No.2 Justine Henin-Hardenne to tears but also helped her lift two Grand Slam trophies this year.

Maria, who married Gamal Kabchi in July 2001, has made her own steady improvement this year. Having slumped to as low as No.224 in March last year, she is now at No.59, her best ranking since February 1999. Her results sheet since June is one to be proud of: a quarterfinal finish in Birmingham, upsets over Nadia Petrova and Jelena Dokic en route to the Stanford semis, a win over world No.8 Chanda Rubin at the US Open and a semifinal appearance last week in Bali.

Having previously scored only three Top 20 wins in her 15-year career, Vento-Kabchi has scored another three in her past four tournaments. On top of all that good news, she’s also in the doubles Top 20 for the first time this week, having won Bali with Angelique Widjaja and reached another two finals (Doha and Toronto) with the Indonesian earlier this year.

www.wtatour.com caught up with Maria Vento-Kabchi in the idyllic surrounds of the Grand Hyatt Bali during last week’s Wismilak International.

Maria, congratulations on your great results this year. At 29 years old, has this resurgence come as a surprise to you? What do you put it down to?

Well, I’ve had a lot of ups and downs in my career. I’ve been playing for a long time now—over 10 years—but the past few years have been pretty tough. At the end of last year I decided that if I really wanted to do better I needed to get into really good physical shape. I knew the strokes were still there, but in the time I’ve been playing, tennis has become a lot more physical. We can all hit the ball pretty well, so the difference is in mental and physical fitness.

So, how did you go about working on your fitness?

I started working with Pat in late November last year. I definitely owe a lot of my recent good results to him. He brought back the motivation and determination in me to try really hard and to be my best. You know how Justine said Pat worked her so hard that sometimes she cried, well, that was the same for me! I trained really hard in December, too, getting ready for Australia, and as I said, I think the results are now showing.

But the results didn’t necessarily come straight away—you had a pretty lean start to the year. Was it hard not to be discouraged when you didn’t see immediate results?

It was, for sure, but Pat told me not to expect the results to suddenly improve. He told me the hard work would definitely pay off, but that it wasn’t going to change everything overnight. Even though I wasn’t winning a lot of matches at the start of the year—and it was hard not to be discouraged—I kept telling myself it would change eventually.

When did you feel you ’turned the corner’ with your results?

I suppose in Birmingham, when I got to the quarterfinals—that was a turning point for me. Even before that, when I was playing Sarasota qualies, I lost but I felt it was definitely coming back. Of course, Stanford was a great week for me.

Beating Petrova and Dokic at Stanford was a great achievement. Even though your form was improving, were you at all surprised at how well you did there?

I was a little surprised, but by then I had a really positive attitude and when I went into those matches, I knew I had a chance to win.

You’re 29 years old—one would say entering ‘veteran stage’ on the Tour! Was that a factor in you deciding to really work hard—thinking this may be your last chance?

I’ve never wanted to set a time when I am going to finish playing on the Tour, but for sure, I felt like I was hitting my head against a wall by not doing what I needed. So, that’s when I sat down and was really honest with myself, and I realised the things I needed to do.

At any time in this process, did you set goals for yourself, whether they were ranking-related or otherwise?

I did. The problem was that I’ve managed to reach them very soon. When I started this, I was aiming to get into the Top 100 by the end of the year. I did that a lot earlier than I expected. So, I’ve changed (my goals) a little bit. I think if I made it back into the Top 50, that would be a great achievement. I’m certainly going to be trying very hard for that.

una vieja entrevista pero no deja de ser reveladora :eek:


París, 28 Mayo (dpa) .- Es la mejor jugadora venezolana de todos los tiempos, y desde la autoridad de sus resultados María Vento-Kabchi confiesa su hartazgo con la Federación Venezolana de Tenis (FVT), a la que pide renovarse con "un Richard Páez" a la cabeza

"Necesitamos un Richard Páez para el tenis venezolano, porque lo que ha hecho por la 'vinotinto "es muy importante", dijo Vento a la agencia dpa durante una entrevista en París

Número 34 del mundo, Vento celebró el lunes su cumpleaños número 30, y está muy lejos de pensar en el retiro: sueña ya con su actuación en los Juegos Olímpicos de Atenas, en los que espera no sufrir el desaire de los Panamericanos de Santo Domingo, cuando la FVT impidió su participación en el certamen

"Me siento muy bien, es el mejor momento de mi carrera. Sigo teniendo esas ganas de ser mejor cada día. En los años anteriores no había trabajado físicamente como lo hice ahora con Pat Etcheberry, y eso me hace recuperar unas ganas de jugar que en algún momento perdí, cuando mi ranking se fue hace un par de años casi al 200. Si seguía, quería hacerlo bien", dice la venezolana, que tiene su base de entrenamientos en Tampa, Estados Unidos

Vento quiere quebrar la barrera del 31, que fue a mediados de 1998 su mejor posición en el ranking mundial, y está cerca de hacerlo

Esta semana figura 34, y tras acceder a la segunda ronda en Roland Garros subirá un par de posiciones más

Elogia a Milagros Sequera, que a sus 24 años se consolida entre las cien mejores del mundo y como experta doblista -"Milagros es muy buena, me siento muy bien de que esté ella"-, pero admite que el tenis masculino venezolano es un páramo tras las épocas más abundantes de Nicolás Pereira, Maurice Ruah o Jimy Szymanski: "Entre los hombres no hay nada tras ellos"

Pero su gran desilusión es con la FVT, a la que acusa de apoyar poco al tenis. "A la federación le hace falta apoyar un poquito más el tenis. Tenemos posibilidades para el relevo, pero gente como Milagros y yo salimos por nuestro esfuerzo propio"

Sus relaciones con René Herrera, presidente de la FVT, son más que complicadas, inexistentes

"Son relaciones complicadas, complicadas por parte de ellos, que en varias ocasiones me sacaron del equipo. Ellos están pendientes de muchas cosas que no son el tenis", dice, antes de revelar que el equipo venezolano de tenis estuvo a punto de quedarse fuera de los Juegos Olímpicos

"Venezuela quedó fuera de la inscripción de los Juegos Olímpicos de este año. Hay una fecha límite, y navegando por Internet vi la lista de países y noté que Venezuela no estaba. La ITF hizo una excepción para Chile, Luxemburgo y nosotros. La inscripción la hice yo con la gente de la ITF, la federación no sabía que el plazo había vencido", asegura :eek: :eek: :eek:

La Federación Interncional de Tenis (ITF) confirmó a dpa las palabras de Vento. "Es cierto, Venezuela se inscribió fuera del plazo fijado, y recibió una excepción al igual que Chile y Luxemburgo"

Si hay algo que le interesa al presidente venezolano, Hugo Chávez, eso es el deporte. Vento sabe que su presidente sigue muy de cerca los problemas del tenis venezolano, aun cuando el béisbol es el rey en el país sudamericano

"El habló del tema de los Panamericanos en 'Aló, presidente', y puso a cargo al ministro de Deportes para que hiciera una investigación, que sigue adelante. El presidente siempre ha estado pendiente de este caso. Me preocupa la situación deportiva en nuestro país, pero sé que él está haciendo algo para el deporte"

Vento está admirada con los éxitos de la selección venezolana de fútbol, que dirige Richard Páez, y cree que un "Páez II" puede llevar la solución al tenis

"Estoy muy contenta por la actuación que ha tenido Venezuela, con Richard Páez. Necesitamos un Richard Páez para el tenis venezolano, porque lo que ha hecho por la 'vinotinto' es muy importante", insistió, antes de pronosticar que Venezuela será la sorpresa en la Copa América de julio en Perú.

Una victoria que vale doble

La venezolana María Vento-Kabchi volvió a demostrar una gran personalidad y espíritu de lucha al remontar un marcador adverso

Vento-Kabchi debutó con triunfo (AP)
NUEVA YORK (EFE) -- La tenista venezolana María Vento-Kabchi volvió a demostrar una gran personalidad y espíritu de lucha al remontar un marcador adverso y conseguir su pase a la segunda ronda del Abierto de Estados Unidos.

Vento-Kabchi, que disputa el noveno Abierto, reconoció que la clave del triunfo estuvo en los cambios que hizo con su juego y la mayor confianza que demostró en el campo.

"Lo primero de todo es que me siento muy feliz por el triunfo conseguido y estar de nuevo en la segunda ronda", declaró a EFE Vento-Kabchi. "No es fácil superar la primera ronda de un Grand Slam y más como comencé hoy el partido".

Vento-Kabchi cometió demasiados errores sin forzar y tampoco forzó el juego de su rival, que siempre impuso el ritmo en el campo. Pero todo cambió en el segundo set cuando Vento-Kabchi comenzó a asegurar los golpes, meter las pelotas dentro de las líneas y aseguró su saque.

"Me di cuenta que tenía que moverla mucho más si quería conseguir el triunfo, no cometer tantos errores y asegurar los golpes", valoró Vento-Kabchi. "Pero a parte de mi tenis, la rival siempre jugó agresiva y fue muy difícil".

Vento-Kabchi, que busca conseguir por segundo año consecutivo pasar a la tercera ronda, reconoció que la próxima rival, la serbia Ana Ivanovic, decimoctava cabeza de serie, que se impuso por 7-6 (7-5) y 6-3 a la estadounidense Lindsay Lee-Waters, será otro reto más que tendrá que superar. "Me he enfrentado sólo una vez, este año en Qatar y perdí, pero confió que esta vez sea diferente y pueda ser yo la que consiga la victoria", agregó Vento-Kabchi.

I don't know whether she will return next year. She played challengers this year so maybe she hasn't given up yet. I could imagine that she focuses on doubles from now on.

I dont think so - she was pretty sure she was going to retire last year but I think the 4th round at the US Open changed everything because her ranking meant she could play tour events but I cant see a way back now - her doubles ranking is very low. Im 100% its the end :sad:
