Re: Vera Zvonareva rise to the top cheering thread, Vol 3

ouch she missed that lob ,so no bagel *sigh*

still being up *41 with 2 breaks should be enough to seal the match

I hate when Bepa starts stretching her ankle that much...

Re: Vera Zvonareva rise to the top cheering thread, Vol 3

Bepa d. Ivanovic 57 64 64

Choke at the end while serving for it, but she got the job done. Thats's all the matters in my book.
So glad she is fighting so hard this week. She has earned an important 320 points so far this week as she has a mountian to defend for the rest of the year.

Her level of is getting better, especially with the back hand. I would say this would be her best match in a little while, Ivanovic played really well.

Looking forward to what could be an entertaining final tomorrow with Radwanska.

Re: Vera Zvonareva rise to the top cheering thread, Vol 3

close call,she tried her best to choke but thankfully it wasnt mean to be

pretty decent quality througout,and I dare to say this is the best she´s played in quite a while(esp. the fist 4 games of the 3rd set)

Excited about the thought of having two titles in a row before heading for Canada and starts defending those million points.And most important,congrats Bepa

Re: Vera Zvonareva rise to the top cheering thread, Vol 3

Hell, when she served for it the second time, I could hardly watch! Bepa was hitting balls all over the place at the end of the first, start of the second but got it back together thankfully

Bepa!

Def. Ivanovic 5-7, 6-4, 6-4 2hr22m48s

VERA.................... 1st ............. 2nd .............. 3rd
Aces ..................... 0 ................ 2 ................. 2
DF......................... 2 ................ 1 ................. 2
1st serve ............. 56% ............ 45% ............. 59%
1st serve pts ........ 60% ............ 63% ............. 88%
2nd serve pts ....... 50% ............ 61% ............. 42%
BP saved ............. 3/5 .............. 2/2 .............. 1/2
BP won ................ 1/2 ............. 1/6 ............... 2/3
Recv pts ............. 34% ............. 35% ............. 46%
Total Pts............. 32/71 ........... 38/76 ........... 33/57

Thank God she finished it. I only saw the last 12 games. Looked like Vera was going to hand Ana a bagel in the 3rd, but then she got too casual. Obvious she was upset after handing over those first 2 games, and then nearly lost it at the last changeover. I don't know, but it seemed like her coach was telling her to calm down, relax and just play her game. If so, good advice.

Ana looked lost most of that 3rd set. It's a good thing Bepa served it out when she did, or it probably would have been a different result. A bit of the old Vera temperament still hanging around.

Looking at the stats of the first two sets, you have to wonder how Ana managed to lose. And where did Vera's first serve go? Other than in the middle of the net? Anyway, she persevered as she always does, and it paid off. Great tennis most of the set, despite the dainty hitting.

One to go, Bepa!!
Good luck in the final!
