to be a repeat winner of the Orange Bowl 18u title. Vera defeated her Russian compatriot Svetlana Kuznetsova 6-7, 6-4 6-3 to win this prestigious title for the second straight year. It seems that Svetlana has trouble winning important finals. I hope she doesn't take that to the pro tour. It seems the Russian female tennis players have trouble winning titles. And that's a mystery in itself. Anyway, congratulations Vera. You deserve it!
