... against Anna Pistolesi. Is that true ??? :eek:

While we are at it, has there ever been a comeback from 0-6 0-5 0-40 ? :eek:

I think so, I heard about the match the day after it was played, and the commentators (who didn't know much about Chanda at the time) were ranting about how Jana had completely choked.

Wasn't there a match between Seles and Rubin like that too?

I heard Vera lost her temper or something...did she choke and then let it get to her, or did something get to her which led to a meltdown?

Vera had a similar meltdown in Toronto. She was leading Suarez and then just decided to completely self-destruct. Marat would've been proud of the conversations she had with herself.

I'm afraid the infamous Russian Headcase Syndrome has now caught up with young Vera. :sad:

Thankfully, she nabbed herself a title before she was afflicted with this unfortunate disease, so at least she doesn't have THAT matzoball hanging over her head! :eek:

The Syndrome is not always lifelong, so Vera fans need not despair! Just look at Elena D, who overcame a notoriously bad case of it earlier this year. :):):)

No no no. Vera did this in EVERY match last year. Most famously against Kim at the US Open. It went away this year, and, not coincidentally, she rose to #14 in the world. But now it seems to be back.

It is true, dava! Pam and Mary Joe mentioned it yesterday and today. :(

Hurley, thanks for the info. So it is a recurring case and not a new one. A little more serious case, then. :sad:

It is serious. Her...let's be frank. She's insane, and it was always going to hold her back.

But once she got it under control, zoom, Top Ten. She had a year-end 9-10 spot lined up. During the Suarez and Pistolesi matches, however, she allowed it to take over again. Hopefully she'll recover in time for the Open. Fourth round would be more than enough to keep her in contention for a Top Ten finish to 2003.

pistolesi was very nice to vera afterwards and spent time consoling her. :angel:

Poor Vera :sad:

Anna :angel: /warrior
the last thing I would want is your opponent offering sympathy
seems to be rubbing salt into the wound

quite alot of players don't like this.

I heard Vera was in tears, though so I guess Anna would have felt bad...
