Re: Cheering thread: Moscow - WD champion with Makarova!
Vesnina is probably the only top Russian who's never fulfilled her potential, only watching as her contemporaries go on to greater successes. She ended 2012 at her lowest ranking since 2008. Will she ever show what she is capable of?
Again, playing Auckland, Elena has Rd16 points to defend. Here's her draw:
(1)Agnieszka Radwanska (POL) v Kristina Mladenovic (FRA)
Simona Halep (ROU) v Arantxa Rus (NED)
(wc)Eugenie Bouchard (CAN) v Elena Vesnina (RUS)
Lara Arruabarrena-Vecino (ESP) v (6)Yaroslava Shvedova (KAZ)
She should get by Eugenie, and potentially Yari, before falling to Aga.
