WTA NÜRNBERG

1st round: Kuznetsova vs. Larsson

Larsson is pretty bad lately, should not be a bigger problem for Svetlana, 2nd round probably against Siniakova, that would be a good test then for sure...

Re: Svetlana's 2019 Tournaments! Back on clay after injury break

lost 57 46 to Larsson

Larsson only won one match this year before and that one was by retirement, not sure what happened here, could not watch it yet, the conditions in Nürnberg are not easy and could be that Sveta was in Paris with her head already but that is still a huge disappointment, especially as she has a good (and maybe last) chance for a title here....now she can only hope for a good draw at RG!

Yeah that’s a really bad loss, don’t know what the he’ll happened. Maybe she didn’t want to have to play twice in a day. Or maybe she only gets up for the big events now

Re: Svetlana's 2019 Tournaments! Back on clay after injury break

we'll see who the Qualifier is, 2nd round vs Ka. Pliskova would be interesting for sure, they always had tough matches so far (h2h 2-2) but not sure about Sveta´s shape, her game/results were pretty up and down since she came back......

Sveta lost 64 62 to Kucova. Going nowhere with this kind of form

Re: Svetlana's 2019 Tournaments! Back on clay after injury break

I watched the first set and it was really not great!
She had several chances for an early lead but couldnt take her chances and at 3-3 a weak service game gave Kucova the break!
Sveta was unable to put enough pressure on Kucova and Kucova herself obviously gets more dangerous when she is not much under pressure but Svete made too many UEs also, strange shot selection as well (some awful bh slice shots into the bottom of the net), it was just not good enough and in this kind of shape it will be tough for her to achieve anything big unfortunately....

I'm glad Sveta & Vera are still playing. But they are not the same players as 2009,10

Re: Svetlana's 2019 Tournaments! Back on clay after injury break

WIMBLEDON

(1)Barty v Zheng
Kuznetsova v Van Uytvanck

no tournament since RG but I think she was not even on some Entry Lists, so I guess she just is not in the mood for grass, can't see her doing any damage, van Uytvanck will be tough to beat already and 2nd round with Barty would be as far as she can get anyway...guess a retirement at the end of the season is likely as well, Tokyo 2020 is not realistic anymore as well these days unfortunately...

Who is Kuznetsova’s coach these days?

Tsitsipas & Sakkari outed by spiceboy
