Nice article that explains why Lera was out and what her future plans are:


Southwest Florida tennis: Russia’s Valeria Solovyeva beats Kayla Day for ASC Women’s Open crown
By Nicholas Idler of the Naples Daily News

Posted: Yesterday 7:26 p.m.
Russia's Valeria Solovyeva began the second Academia Sánchez-Casal Women's Open as a wild card competitor and trudged through a 64-player bracket just to qualify for the main draw. On Sunday, she capped off the $25,000 tournament with a 6-4, 6-0 win in the finals over Kayla Day at the Naples Bath and Tennis Club.

Day kept it close throughout most of the first set and tied it up at 4-4 at one point. Solovyeva eventually found a rhythm, though, and won eight straight points.

"I think I just had to fight through myself a bit more, other than my opponent," she said. "This is why the first set was on-and-off for me. I took my level higher than I started in the beginning and it was going in a good way for me. The longer I played, the better."

Solovyeva and Day got into some long volleys, but time after time, Solovyeva found ways to disrupt Day's rhythm and forced her into tough returns. The 23-year-old usually capitalized by lofting a shot to a corner, where Day couldn't get to it.

Solovyeva used less finesse during match point. After gaining control of the volley once again, she sent Day to her left, then drilled the return to the right. The ball sped past Day, giving her no time to get behind it.

"I played my game and I used my shots that work for me the most," Solovyeva said.

The title win is only the beginning, according to Solovyeva, who recently began a comeback after missing more than a year due to injury. She was the No. 160 singles player in the world, and No. 60 in doubles, before hurting her knee in February of 2015.

Solovyeva played her first tournament earlier this month at the ITF Indian Harbour Beach women's tournament, where she fell in the final round of the qualifying draw to No. 1 seed Bernarda Pera. She has to begin climbing the rankings with zero points, but she gained 50 ITF and WTA points with her win on Sunday.

"It is a long road and it's just began," she said. "I'm happy to have the result in my second event of my comeback."

Hurdles continued to fall in front of Solovyeva during the tournament. She defeated the No. 1 seed of the ASC tournament, Sweden's Susanne Celik, in the quarterfinals, but said her toughest challenge came against Norway's Ulrikke Eikeri during the second round She defeated Eikeri, 7-6(5), 2-6, 7-5.

Day had a tough road to the finals as well. Also an unseeded player, the 16-year-old from Santa Barbara, California, faced top-five opponents during her three matches leading up to the championship.

"I think I learn more when I lose, than when I win, because I can really see the things I need to do to improve," she said. "I've learned that just competing and trying to find a way to win, really gets you through a lot of the time. You're most likely not going to be playing your best tennis throughout the week, every single day in a tournament."

Day defeated No. 5 Gabriela Ce in the second round, No. 2 Michelle Larcher De Brito in the quarterfinals and No. 4 Catherin Bellis in the semifinals. She advanced through all three rounds in straight sets.

Re: Valient Valeria Solovieva Cheering Thread!

I was checking her profile on ITFTENNIS.com and fortunately found that she has won Two 25K Doubles Titles in Bangkok, Thailand on Dec 2015 with Irina Khromacheva.
And another Doubles Title about a month ago in 25K Naples, Florida, USA with Maryna Zanevska.
Really Great Achievements and Hopeful Sign !
