Congatulations to Vera! To beat such good junior players in the same tournament is a fine accomplishment. Especially when you consider how much less experienced she is compared to Strycova and Kuznetsova. Vera is a big girl. Let's hope she can grow into her body and use her size and power as a weapon. Udachi Vera!
Happiness is like a cat. If you try to coax it or call it, it will avoid you. It will never come. But if you pay no attention to it and go about your business, you'll find it rubbing up against your legs and jumping into your lap. - William Bennett
