Re: Anna Blinkova!

Anna was in Saint-Petersburg this week to play the Neva Cup (100K ITF, indoor hard)

She beat 16 yo Ukrainian qualifier Katarina Zavatska 6-4 6-3 in R1 but fell in R2 to second seed Evgeniya Rodina 6-7(3) 6-7 (5)

She could have won this... she had a set point (on Rodina's serve) in the first set and was up *6-5 30-0 in the second.

The R2 match can be watched on YT (it starts at the 5:00 mark)

Anna said: "I had very good opponent in the final, also Russian. I know her well. First set was brilliant from my side; I played aggressive tennis, lot of winners on my side. She improved in the second set, she did not allow me to get her under pressure. I fought hard but I was bit tired after playing at three tournaments. I could not level up my game at the end,"

She lost 6-1 3-6 2-6 in the final Too bad she couldn't keep the momentum and that earmy break in the 2nd set

But it's been a great fortnight for Blinky-GOAT!

Re: Anna Blinkova!

Anna has traveled all the way to Kazakhstan to play the 25K in Almaty this week.

She had an easy time in R1, when her opponent (the perpetually injured Akgul Amanmuradova) retired after losing the first three games.

Anna lost to (Q)Giovine 6-1 5-7 1-6

The serve was a problem throughout the match (she faced 9 BPs in the first set alone even though she was only broken once). The second set was a mess - Anna took a 3-1 lead but fatigue was already becoming a factor, and from that point on she only managed to hold serve once (!) for the rest of the match. Watching the stream, it was fairly obvious to me that despite her stellar three-set record, she needed to win it in straight sets this time; in the decider, she predictably ran out of gas and lost 6 games in a row.

I found Giovine's behavior somewhat annoying - her part-time grunting was really over-the-top at times, and her loud celebrations felt like an attempt to intimidate her much younger opponent more than anything else.

Good win over top seed and Antalya-10K-GOAT Dinu, despite choking the first set away

Improves on her already excellent three-set record. I wasn't sure she'd have the energy to mount that kind of comeback, well done.

Re: Anna Blinkova!

Blinky def. #1 Cristina Dinu 6(5):7, 6:2, 6:2

she is 11:2 at three-setter's this year

The first set she had lost unnecessarily, she was 5:3 up and also in TB 3:0 and 5:3, but temporarily she lost the concentration. But no problem in further course she was focused and has controlled the match.
