Kutuzova in 2010 • Next Stop Indian Wells!

So she's in the draw, playing Hantuchova first up.

Quote:
Daniela Hantuchova SVK (22) v Viktoriya Kutuzova UKR
Jarmila Groth AUS v Qualifier

Stephanie Dubois CAN v Agnes Szavay HUN
Marina Erakovic NZL v Na Li CHN (16)
Could she win? Not sure as I've got no idea at all what her form is like, but if she plays her best then she'll give herself a chance. I always get the sense that you're a chance against Hantuchova.

Good luck Vika!

Re: 2010 Australian Open

Hantuchova is a difficult R1 opponent.
3rd tough Grand Slam R1 draw in a row: At Wimbledon R1 vs Sharapova and at US Open R1 vs Clijsters.

Good luck in Aus Open, Vika!

Re: 2010 Australian Open

What a choke. She really should have won against Hantuchova, being up 4-1 or something in the 3rd. She had a potentially nice run ruined by her inability to finish off a match.

Re: 2010 Australian Open

Vika

6-3 1-6 5-7

A HUGE choke.
Vika actually was leading 4-0 in 3rd set!
Then a long 4-1 game with points for 5-1!

IMO this exactly shows why Vika is not ranked higher:
Unfortunately she is very weak mentally.
Another big weakness remains her serve.


Now next for Vika is FED CUP!
She finally plays for Ukraine!

The other team members are Alona Bondarenko, Kateryna Bondarenko and Koryttseva.

Re: 2010 Australian Open

Vika played the doubles match in the FED CUP tie UKR vs ITA.
So happy Vika finally played FED CUP, and even better at home in Ukraine!

Hope she also is in team vs AUS in April.
Nice that it again takes place in Ukraine.


Good news from ITF:
Vika reached SF in 50k Biberach, Germany.

Hope Vika continues to improve in Indian Wells and Miami!

Excellent!! She's had a reasonably decent 2010.

I think she can beat Errani, she's a tough player but certainly one that she could win.

If I'm brave enough to look ahead she could meet Cibulkova in the 2nd round, and given her up and down year that's also winnable. Got to get past Errani though.

Good luck!

Re: Kutuzova in 2010 • Next Stop Indian Wells!

That sux. Big time.

I fear in the future Vika will be spoke of in the same vein as Zahlavova Strycova and Salerni - some junior hack whose game was never good enough for the pros. It' a shame because I think he has some wonderous natural ballstriking ability and timing that the current dreck of top young players could only dream about but she's simply had too many set-backs in her career, too many injuries and she never properly developed. Maybe she just wasn't good enough? Maybe the shoulder injuries she had in some of the most crucial developmental years in her career derailed what could have been a top flight career?

C'est la vie.

Was wondering what had happened to her - that's a shame. Hope her recovery is going well and she'll be back on the courts before the end of year.

Re: Kutuzova in 2010 • Next Stop Indian Wells!

Viktoriya Kutuzova: Most possibly, I will come back in the new season in Australia

These days a famous Ukrainian player Viktoriya Kutuzova is being in Kharkiv. Former WTA No. 76 is preparing for her comeback to the professional tour. She is practicing in “Tetra” Tennis Club. Viktoriya hasn’t played professional tournaments since March 2010. A 22-year-old tennis player has told about why she was absent for so long time, about her nearest plans and about changes in her private life in exclusive interview to Ukrainian Tennis Portal.

- Viktoriya, why didn’t you play tournaments for so long time?

- I had a back injury. I had been suffering from this problem for two years. I didn’t have an opportunity to recover earlier, because I was afraid to lose positions in ranking. But in spring at the tournament in Indian Wells I realized that I had to make a break and to cure the injury.

- Did doctors make a forecast that you needed half of a year to cure the injury?

- Yes, they said that I needed at least six months to recover. If I made a smaller break, there was no guarantee I would recover completely. That’s why I made a decision to cure my injury and froze the ranking.

- Why do you prepare in Kharkiv for your comeback?

- I’ve heard that in Kharkiv there are very good conditions for preparation. That’s why I decided to check these words on my own experience. I like everything here. Everything is in the same place: coaches, sparring, fitness-center, tennis courts. Thanks to Mr. Yuriy Sapronov’s tennis centers I was provided perfect conditions for recovery and professional growth.

- You had a long period of free time. You had an opportunity to pay attention to something else, except tennis…

- Yes. I met with my boyfriend, started cooking. I started doing things which are common for girls of my age. I started living on my own. First four months I just had a rest. Then I started coming back to sport, started jogging, went to the gym, played tennis a bit, helped my younger sisters on trainings.

- Tell us, how did you meet your boyfriend?

-His name is Vlad. He is from Odessa. We have known each other for ages, but started communicating closer only about half of a year ago. We have been living together for 6 months.

- Does your younger sister play tennis?

- She is learning in school and plays tennis a bit. When I had time I decided to work with her as a coach. Unfortunately, she has problems of working under loads and she doesn’t like tennis too much. Maybe, she will come through it. We’ll see.

- Viktoriya, who is your coach at the moment?

- At the moment I don’t have a coach.

- And with whom does your father work?

- He works with Alexandr Kazakov, a young boy (1991 year of birth). They have already started playing Futures tournaments. Alexandr didn’t play in the junior tour and started his way from adults. But my father thinks that the junior tour is not so important for boys, as for girls.

- Have you already visited some places of interest Kharkiv?

- I have only little time after practices, but we have already seen something. We’ve been in “Karavan” trading center, were going to visit the zoo, but the weather wasn’t fine. Actually, I got out of big loads and I’m getting tired fast. Often I have lots of plans for the evening, but when I come home, decide to stay and relax.

- When are you going to play at tournaments?

- I was going to play two tournaments in France, but they were moved from November to October. And I’m not yet ready to play at a high level. I don’t want to force my comeback, because I don’t want to make worse for myself and for my tennis career. Most possibly, I will come back in the new season in Australia.

- Viktoriya, do you look at young generation of Ukrainian players?

- I know girls, who are being helped by Mr. Yuriy Sapronov: Elina Svitolina and Alyona Sotnikova. We even had a training together. Generally, I’m satisfied. We will have a good substitution in the future.
