I have a video of one of their doubles matches from this year's Wimbledon, one against the British pair of Georgie Stoop & Laura Robson (think that was the pairing anyway, certainly was Laura Robson). Can't remember the file size but if it's not too ridiculously complicated I'll try & uplaod it somewhere in the next few days...if it's wanted of course! Everyone could already have the match themselves
Umm, I said I'd upload it in a few days, well a few months later I finally got it uploaded!
Here is the doubles match at Wimbledon against Robson & Stroop if anyone wants it, should be an mp4 video (which I think works with Quicktime) but if it doesn't work you may need to download a VLC player but I doubt you'll have to. Hope it all uploaded correctly & works for everyone that wants it
Sveta talks in her official site about Amélie's retirement.She says she will miss Amélie a lot on tour as they had a very good relationship.She says Amélie herself phoned her to tell her first about her announcing retirement.Sveta says she will be sad without her as she was a very good person.She was happy to play with her and interact with her.She wishes Amélie all the best in future life,that everything will be good for her and that she'll be satisfied with it.She'll miss her as a friend and as a the good person she is.
She then talks about doubles and says she'll keep playing doubles but does not know yet with who she will pair.She wants to play doubles but has one principle: not to play with who is best player, but with players she is confortable with.If a players plays very good but she's not friendly with her,she'll never chose to play with that player.
What I would have given to see them play together...sadly it's not to be.....
A true champion. A champion of the courts. A champion of our hearts. A champion of the people. A champion of overcoming prejudice. A true inspiration and role model for woman around the world, gay and straight alike!
Since I was away from the forum for pretty much most of November & December I missed the whole Momo retirement thing So sad to see her decide to retire but at the same time it was not exactly unexpected & I'm happy that she is doing what makes her happy. Wish her the best for her post-tennis life & hope she pops up now & again at events, maybe Wimbledon (since she won it & all she can go sit in the member's box I think) & maybe Roland Garros too.
Since Momosova was no more I was thinking of changing this thread to just be used for Sveta & her doubles life from now on, whoever she plays with. So just a general Sveta Doubles focused thread to discuss any doubles matches she's doing, who she's playing with etc. Or should I just leave it as it is since you never with doubles as to whether she'll play it & we never get that much info about her playing doubles unless it's like a slam final or something.
And what about leaving this thread for the memory of Momosova and have another one for Sveta doubles in general? Personally there won't be any other team like this one with who Sveta will play that I'll feel so passionate and interested about.Momosova were magic
and maybe Sveta herself won't always play with the same partner from now on.Of course,we can't know at this point.
