After a scrappy first (she only held serve twice) which she won 64, second set was over in a blink of an eye, 60. She plays now the winner of Linette and Potapova for a spot in the MD. Go Vera <img src="https://www.tennisforum.com/images/smilies/cheer.gif" border="0" alt="" title="cheer" class="inlineimg" />
Who do you think Vera has a better chance against?
Not sure, but in the end Potapova. Mainly because they played already and Vera won in 3rd set tiebreak &#x1f604;. Long time no see here, Dan. Welcome back!

Now hoping for a good draw. We'll done, Bepa

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

Vera qualified for Madrid beating Potapova 4-6 6-2 7-6 !

What a big fight. Up and down 3rd set: 1-3 -> 5-3 -> 5-6 -> 7-6 !

Vera even saved 3 match points (!) at 5-6 in the 3rd set !

Collins (who is in poor form) is a very good draw for R1. Good luck, Vera !

Serena: "We have great personalities like Jelena (Jankovic) on the tour."
Jelena: "If I had to pick someone after me, I'd pick Serena."

Lost to Collins, not her best tennis

No, indeed. Although I have not seen it, a bit disappointed by the scoreline and Collins current form into consideration. But happy she still qualified.

A disappointing loss in singles

But good news: (WC) Vera/Ostapenko reached Madrid doubles SF !

Despite not having seen Vera on the EL for Rome, she was in the QD. She played #1 seed Sakkari and lost 64 62

Disappointing, but here's hoping for better fortune next time for Vera.
