Verka routined Ana, 3 & 3 in 73 minutes

She'll face 5th seed Diana Marcinkevica (24 yo, WTA 295/CHR 196) in Q3 tomorrow, interdiction to lose to her!

No dream SF

Disappointing that she couldn't at least take the match to a decider - she lost 8 of the last 9 points. Still a positive week, with some very impressive scorelines.

She was on the entry list for the 60K in Quanzhou that was initially scheduled for next week, but the tournament has been pushed back by a week and Vera has pulled out (along with almost all of the non-Asian players). Whatever it takes to boost Saisai-vulture's ranking I guess

So Vera lost 3-6 5-7 to Lu

She lost 4 consecutive games from 3-2* in the first set, and more disappointingly from 5-3 up in the second set (got broken to deuce at *5-4, but didn't have any actual SP ) But it's still been a good win for her, with 5 very good consecutive wins

Re: Vera Lapko

Thanks for your reports!

Well done Vera, another good-looking scoreline

Really hope she can improve her serve further more in the future because it's still the #1 thing holding her back atm and it would be sad not to be able to take advantage of her height more. But she's come a long way already, watching her serve back in 2015 was such a tragic sight...

GL in QF - you've done great so far in this tournament and you can definitely beat her, davayyy!

Vera def. (8)Stojanovic 6-3 6-2

From what I saw (last few games of the second set), Stojanovic has a pretty weak serve and Vera was putting a lot of pressure on it. In fact, Vera broke her 7 times in 8 service games Holding serve was a bit of a problem for Vera too, however. #Belarusianserve

She had an opportunity to dish out another bakery product (up 30-0 on Stojanovic's serve at 5-1), but couldn't quite get the job done. That was the only time Stojanovic held serve in the entire match. Vera struggled a bit to close it out in the next game, but did so on her 3rd MP (also had to save 2 BPs in that game).

Next is Jing Jing Lu (27 yo, ranked 295, CHR 178 back in 2011), a Chinese qualifier I know nothing about. She did "beat" #2 seed Saisai Zheng in R1 (6-0 2-1 ret.), but Zheng was clearly not 100% fit. Certainly seems a winnable match to me.

Hopefully we'll get our DREAM all-Belarusian SF blockbuster

Re: Vera Lapko

Woot woot!

Good job once again, Verun

So she'll face (8)Nina Stojanovic (2 years older than her, Top 150) next Definitely winnable imo, but obviously it'll probably be tougher than against her 4 previous opponents... Nina had promising results in the first few weeks of 2017 but she hasn't done much after that; hopefully Vera swings confidently like in her previous matches and gets the win, davayyy!

No regrets for me then though

Vera def. Pieri 6-1 6-2

The bakery is still open

I tried to watch the match, but the stream for court 9 was choppy and kept freezing (the one for the court where Saisai was playing was much better - of cooouuuurrrsssse ), and I was also keeping an eye on the Mladenovic match. Anyway, Pieri looked pretty weaponless on these courts and her serve is fairly weak (I'm guessing she's more of a clay courter), and Vera was never in trouble.

Yeah, I woke up between 8.30 and 9am tis morning and was surprised to see that some of the first matches weren't completed yet

Too bad we've missed that glorious performance by Vera

Two double bagels in 3 matches (Robson )

The start of her match was delayed by at least 3 hours because of rain, so I eventually gave up waiting and went to bed.

Smiling Vera
