Vera beat Hsieh 6-4 6-4 in Doha R1. Well done, Vera! :love:

I saw some of the 2nd set. Some long points. Solid tennis from Vera.
She moved well, played strong defense today and fought hard as always.
Vera was clearly the better, more talented player. She deservedly won this match.
As always with Vera, it´s very important that she stays aggressive and does not get passive.

Hopefully she will also win her R2 and stay healthy now ...

Unfortunately, Vera lost 57 16 :( . She was serving for the 1st set at 54, but could got broken and never got back in the match. But great to have one MD match at least :). Hopefully she will somehow get into MD directly for Indian Wells.

Vera beat Wang in first round 64 61 :)

Next round she will play her ever nemesis Stosur :( . They have not played for years of course, but Vera only beat her twice...… in 2004. After that only defeats, 8 in a row. Good luck, nonetheless, Vera.

Sooo happy Vera beat her nemesis and nightmare Stosur! :love:

Head To Head is now 3-8 (after losing 8 matches against Stosur in a row).

Very interesting R3 vs #1 seed Siniakova (a player similar to Vera and whom I also like).
Vera and Siniakova hace similar styles, a similar height, both are very good movers and defenders. And they are quite crazy on the court and can get too negative (although Vera thankfully has matured, but Siniakova is often still very negative and destroys herself). We will see some over-dramatic reactions for sure. And great rallies. Should be funny.
Also this match against #53 Siniakova will be a very good test for Vera. Vera needs these tests and matches against Top 60 players in order to improve her game/level and gain more confidence.

And a good chance for Vera too because Siniakova is in a slump so far this year.
I am excited for this R3 match vs Siniakova. Best of luck, Vera! :)
