Too bad for Vera! But she's so inexperienced! Vera has only played one junior grand slam tournament. So she is still an inexperienced junior player. I think Vera should play a couple challengers in the near future.
Eggy, will she get a WTA ranking after her next challenger or WTA tournament?
And now the question must be asked, is Vera Douchevina a great prospect like Maria Sharapova? She just might be. What do you think, Eggy?
And Eggy, she beat Myriam in 3 sets. Not straight sets.
When Vera played Maria Sharapova in Australia, Maria won in straight sets. I wonder if Vera was intimidated by Maria's fame? That is possible, because Vera is virtually unknown. While Maria became famous as a young prodigy.
In the girl’s tournament Russian Vera Douchevina notched up the biggest shock with her 4-6 6-1 6-2 victory over seventh seed Myriam Casanova (SUI). Douchevina admitted that even she has been surprised by her tennis this week. "Normally I prefer hard courts to clay but I really like Roland Garros," said Douchevina.
Eggy, Vera has a "much bigger game than Masha"? How? Are you sure?
Myriam Casanova said yesterday that she prefers to play Sharapova on clay rather than hard courts, where Maria hits too hard for her! That's hard to believe considering that Maria gives a way some 40 to 50 pounds to Myriam! But that's what Myriam said. And I have to believe her. I suppose slender girls like Maria Sharapova can have tremendous power, just like strong girls like Myriam Casanova do!
Udachi Vera! Do it for the Federation! And do it for yourself!
