Sveta lost today 3-6 5-7. It was an outstanding match; she didn't lose because of her errors but because Kerber was the better player. Sveta's W-UE ratio was 29-26 Kerber's serve and FHDTL were killing Sveta and I think she knew it. Regardless, Sveta fought really hard and played really well for her second tournament back. Her serve was much better and net play outstanding. I think if they play again in Melbourne, Sveta can beat her.

Regardless of the loss, was an excellent week for Sveta. And for us..
Coming from the Qualies, winning 5 matches in a row, playing well.. Pretty sure that 6 matches in 6 days in the heat of Australia, was a problem in the end, but seeing her playing that way, already renewed my hopes for 2013..
She'll be trouble in the Australian Open..
