Well done Vera! She has saved this tournament from being a complete joke for the Russian women. The play of Kournikova, Bovina, Dementieva and Sharapova was a monumental dissapointment this week! But Vera and Dinara have saved the day!

Thumbs up

Vera showed a lot of heart in this match! She was up 3-1, then lost umpteen games in a row (sorry, too lazy to count 'em). But she DID NOT GIVE UP!! Despite playing such an elite player she stayed in the match and finally took a couple games in the 2nd.

This fighting spirit that Never Says Die is what I look for in a young player. Thanks to that, Vera has climbed up my Russian faves list this week to claim the #4 spot.

If the others keep going down the road they are on, Vera2 could be my #1 Russian soon!

4 years is the difference between her and Justine... could Vera catch up?

judging by today's match she is on the right path... I feel there will more things to come for her this year. All she needed is couple of good wins in a row. Vera will be close to top 100 (or maybe inside) by the end of the year.

More things will come? Of course more things will come!

This was only Vera's THIRD WTA main draw match in her life!! She has played in qualies in only a handful of other WTA events. Vera is a veritable infant on this Tour!

And even in the Challengers, Vera's experience has been extremely limited so far. Just three months ago, we were excited about Vera's huge win -- in the Orange Bowl! A Junior event! She's just 3 months from being a junior player! (In fact maybe she is still playing Jrs, I don't know.)

So getting through qualies at a Tier 1 event, winning a main draw match there, and then going out on the Stadium Court and going up 3-1 -- what a dream come true for a young kid. I am so thrilled for her!

I don't know what Vera's plans are. I hope she will continue to play in Challengers and try to qualify in low-tier WTA events. I hope she will methodically work on building her strength, her game and her confidence, well away from the spotlight; the spotlight that seems to shrivel up the Russian girls as soon as it shines toward them!

Vera's got some toughness; we know she's got the big heart. She knows how to win; she has proven that as junior Wimbledon champion. She is not surrounded by photographers, journalists, sponsors or a whole team of people ready to suck her blood. She is just now starting out! Let's give her some space and time. I am not going to criticize any kid under 18 no matter how they they perform, or how often they "fail". So Vera's got my 100% unconditional support for at least a year and a half. Go to it, kid!

The result is not bad. Vera managed to win 5 games playing against #4 player in the world!

I hope the opportunity to play on a centre court in front of a big crowd is going to inspire Vera more and raise the desire to become a player who is worth the main tennis stage not because she plays a star but because she herself is the main attraction of the match.

Great tournament for Vera. Huge experience for a young girl. I expect many more to come in the future.

Report from Daniel of Vera's match

Then saw Douchevina vs. Henin. Ok. Henin was the favorite here but I was cheering for Vera. Wasn’t she 3-1 up a break in the first set??? Yes she was, and then she got nervous. She made so many errors. I think the problem was she got nervous, probably because she was playing Henin, or maybe it was stadium court. She has nice groundstrokes. I noticed she was inside the baseline all the match receiving firt and second serve. I supposed she tried to intimidate Justine, but it did not work, because Justine got a powerful first serve (amazing how that short girl can generate so much power).. Vera never got upset, did not throw racket at any moment. I think she needs to improve her serve motion, add more power.

I missed it too! Thanks, Eggy!

Am happy but not surprised to learn that Vera did not lose her temper! That doesn't seem to be her style.
