Vera at the French Open

VERA ZVONAREVA RUS (10) vs. Qualifier

Magui Serna ESP vs. Akiko Morigami JPN

Rita Grande ITA vs. Henrieta Nagyova SVK

Barbara Schwartz AUT vs. MARIA SHARAPOVA RUS (18)


Vera has 334 points to defend, which is not an easy task. If she is on her game, she will most likely face Maria Sharapova in the 3rd round, Nadia Petrova in the 4th round, and Justine Henin-Hardenne in the QF.

Vera's goal should be to return to the QF, and then see if she can lift her game to a new level. I don't think that she has peaked this season, so now is the time to do it. I have a feeling that Vera will make the tennis world sit up and listen in an even bigger way than she did at the French Open last year.

Удачи Вера!!!

Not the best draw for Vera...

Magui has been horrendous this year... but, if she can play like she used to, she's a major threat to Vera on clay.

Then, maybe Masha... but I don't think she'll give Vera any trouble here. If Vera can just play solid tennis for a set, then Masha will fade.

This is a section with a few possible nasty floaters in Serna, Schwartz, and Grande.

Magui got to the 4th round last year, but Lina rightly points out that her results have been shocking this year. On clay, she lost 6-2 6-1 to Anna S-P in the 1st round in Rome, and 6-0 6-1 to Anna S-P in the QF in Vienna. She will need to really pick up her play if she wants to challenge Vera. Then again, I thought the same thing about Jill Craybas .

I personally think that Vera is going to grab massive quality points by beating Justine, but I'd better for fear of jinxing her.

It is a good draw in that Justine hasn't played since the B&L. But it's still a testing group for Vera.

Good luck Vera

Morigami could also be dangerous, remember she scared the hell out of Nadia recently

(Couldn't remember whether it was Charleston or Amelia Island )

Udachi Vera

Nice draw, she drew Zuzana Kucova in Round 1

Only real threat should be Masha, although if Vera plays a bad match even Kucova has a chance..

Vera won 6/0 6/2 I didn't see the match but I suppose she played well even she was a little bit deconcentrated in the 3 last games!
Good luck for the whole tournament my Vera!!I believe in you !!! Udachi!!!!

Vera defeated Serna 5-7 6-1 6-4. Vera was suffering from some type of stomach bug, so it's good that she fought and won

Vera lost to Maria 3-6, 6-7(3). She still has doubles with Nastya.

Don't bother showing up for doubles.

Go back to Florida and cry.

Lina, nice of you to join us in mourning the end of Bepa's singles campaign. I will pass on your sentiments to Vera.

I'm very positive about Vera's chances in the doubles, so I think that Vera should show up and compete, and hopefully blast away her bad form from the match against Masha
