Fell to JJ, 57 46. Not a bad scoreline, and JJ went out in the next round.

Good news:

Lera qualified into the MD of Florianapolis

Bad news: She drew #1 Jelena Jankovic in an incredibly weak field with 4 LLs and 2 WCs

Well, Lera can only do her best!

Re: Valient Valeria Solovieva Cheering Thread!

on her SemiFinal match against Caitlin Whoriskey.

Valeria Solovyeva had been something of a Russian steamroller ... steamrolling her way to three straight tournament finals prior to El Paso.

So Caitlin Whoriskey's planning was understandable.

Whoriskey was slated to meet the white hot Russian Solovyeva in Saturday morning's semifinals of the Hunt Communities $25,000 Women's Pro Tennis Classic at Tennis West Sports & Racquet Club.

Smiling, then laughing, Whoriskey said, "I made my flight reservations home for tomorrow. She'd just been steamrolling everyone. Guess I'll have to change my flight."

Indeed she will.

Solovyeva began as expected, rolling past Whoriskey 6-1 in the first set. But Whoriskey, the 28-year-old from Boston, changed tactics ... she began coming to the net every chance she got. And that tipped the match upside down ... and forced Whoriskey to change her flight plans.

Whoriskey roared back to defeat Solovyeva 1-6, 6-2, 7-5 to reach Sunday morning's championship match against defending champion Jamie Loeb.

While Whoriskey and Solovyeva locked up in a 2˝ hour duel, Loeb simply smothered South African Chanel Simmonds 6-2, 6-3 ... wrapping up a championship spot in just about an hour.

In the first set of her match, Whoriskey looked as though she were on schedule to make that Sunday flight. Solovyeva rolled right through her 6-1. But then everything changed. And, all of a sudden, it began to look more and more as though that Sunday flight was in jeopardy.

"The first set nothing was really going my way," Whoriskey said, shaking her head. "She was playing really well and I knew she is a great competitor. I gave her a couple of openings and she took advantage of them. The second set I just decided to start coming forward and I think it threw her off a little. I don't feel my game is as strong when I stay on the baseline and exchange, so I decided to play to my strength.

"Plus, here in El Paso, the condition suits my game well," she said. "The ball jumps off the court, doesn't settle in like on clay and give your opponent time to pass you. Plus, it flies through the air. I guess you could say my game is suited for El Paso."

Whoriskey broke Solovyeva in the opening game of the second set and then broke her twice more, soaring away to a 5-0 lead. She came to net and put away a backhand volley to lock up the second set 6-2.

The third set was a tense duel. Solovyeva swatted away a trio of break points and held her serve to go up 1-0. Whoriskey leveled the match with her serve and then broke Solovyeva to take a 2-1 lead. But the 23-year-old Russian broke right back and it was level at 2-all. Whoriskey broke again and worked her way to a 5-4 lead. She served for the match but Solovyeva broke back at love and the match was all even — one set each, 5-all. But Whoriskey broke back one more time and this time, serving for the set a second time, closed the show.

Whoriskey played a pair of qualifying matches and Saturday marked her third three-set match in four outings in the main draw. And then she took a break and returned for the doubles final.

Whoriskey and Ashley Weinhold teamed to win the doubles championship Saturday afternoon, taking a 6-4, 7-6 (3) win over Sanaz Marand and Carol Zhao.

"Lot of tennis this week," Whoriskey said, laughing again. "But that's a good thing. Guess I'll have to change that flight now. I'll miss the Fourth of July party on Cape Cod, but I think my friends will understand. This is a pretty good reason."

A report on her QuarterFinal Win over first seeded Kristie Ahn:
(by El Paso Times)

Patient Russian heals, beats tourney's top seed

The young woman waited patiently, biding her time, working to get that knee strong again, working to finish her college degree.

It was not what she wanted to do. It was what she had to do.

On a hot Thursday morning in late June, Valeria Solovyeva showed the benefits of all that work ... all that patience.

The 23-year-old from Saratov, Russia, dismissed top-seeded Kristie Ahn, 6-3, 6-2, on her way to Friday's quarterfinals of the Hunt Communities $25,000 Women's Pro Tennis Classic at Tennis West Sports & Racquet Club.

"I took my time in the match," Solovyeva said. "I was patient. Played one point at a time. This was my fifth tournament back since my knee injury and I feel I'm playing better and better."

Solovyeva is most certainly on a run right now. Her ranking, which had once been as high as 163, has slipped into the 500s with her inactivity. But she is climbing and climbing fast. She won the $25,000 event May 26 in Naples, Fla., she was the runner-up in the $25,000 event June 19 in Sumter, S.C., and she won the $25,000 event Sunday in Baton Rouge, La.

Ahn, the four-time All-American from Stanford, could never get going against Solovyeva. Ahn, with a ranking of 224 in the world, dropped the first set and fell behind 4-2 in the second set. Ahn had a look at two break points but could not convert either, so, instead of pulling back to 4-3 and on serve and still having a pulse, she fell behind 5-2. Solovyeva blistered a cross-court winner off Ahn's serve and then went on to break the Stanford graduate one more time to close out the match.

"It was hard to be out all that time," she said. "But I was able to finish my degree in sports science at my college in Russia. I worked hard on rehabbing my knee and I missed playing tennis. I didn't worry about it, though. I just tried to take it a day at a time. I'm very pleased with the way I've played. I've just tried to work on my game and the winning has been good. Those are things you cannot really control, though."

After more than a year of waiting, the young woman from Russia seems to be controlling this winning thing quite well.

VALERIA SOLOVYEVA captures tennis title!

Valeria Solovyeva of Saratov, Russia, capped her run at the USTA Women’s Pro Circuit’s Southern Lifestyle Development Tennis Classic, defeating Jennifer Elie of New York 5-7, 6-3, 6-0 Sunday morning at the LSU Tennis Complex to win the singles title.

Solovyeva won two singles titles on the International Tennis Federation Pro Circuit, including one earlier this year in Naples, Florida. It is her third ITF circuit title this year, including the doubles title at Naples event.

Solovyeva defeated the No. 1 seed of the tournament Riko Sawayanagi from Hakodate, Hokkaido, Japan, in the semifinals on Saturday, 6-2 and 6-3 to advance to the finals.

Solovyeva showed tons of grit and determination,” LSU co-head coach Michael Sell said. “She fought like a tiger, especially after losing such a tough first set. She had a great two weeks after she lost in the finals last week, so it’s impressive to back up last week with a singles title.

Elie had Solovyeva on her heels, winning the first set 7-5, after throwing her off of her rhythm with her touch on the ball.

But Solovyeva had a sense of urgency and gained control in the second set, where she went 25-of-27 on second serves and won 13 of 24 second-serve points.

Solovyeva capped the win with a 6-0 victory in the final set in a match that lasted 2 hours and 19 minutes.

“The level of tennis was incredible and so many great players experienced how beautiful LSU is,” Sell said. “We had an increasing amount in attendance as the tournament went along, so the word is spreading. Our goal is to get the local tennis community more involved with coming to watch. I believe once more people experience this tournament, they will be thirsty to come back to watch more tennis.”

Lauren Herring and Ellen Perez took home the doubles title.

The circuit’s next tournament begins Monday in El Paso, Texas.
