And also a win in round2! :)

She was supposed to plays Shuai Zhang, but she withdrew before the match, and Vera had to play Dolehide as a LL and beat her 62 64 :D

Next round, Vondrousova

Vera lost a very close match to Marketa, almost 3 hours! 67 76 46. Vera was up a break at 43 in the 3rd, but could not hold serve from there. Too bad, but happy with her run here. Hopefully a good draw for next week's AO :)

2 h 48 mins ! Epic battle
A very close hard-fought high-quality match (y)
Smart tennis, great defense from both. Many strong exhausting long rallies.

A shame that someone had to lose. Both deserved to win.
Marketa had the youth on her side, younger and seemed fresher.
Vera can be proud that she can still play such high level at the age of 36.

I can say I have only respect for Vera. She played strong and gave everything.
She smashed her racquet several times into the bag after the loss. Understandable.
But I´m sure she is over it now. And already focusing on Aus Open.

Vera was so close, but lost 64 46 46 :( .

She had her chances, but always lost her serve which should keep her in the set.

A shame. Vey unlucky draw :cry:
I wish she had gotten a better draw. Then she could have reached R2/R3/R4.
LUCK plays such an important role in the draws.

Doubles with Laura now ;)

Vera got into MD of St Petersburg premier tournament with a WC. Yesterday she played qualifier, Arina Rodionova and won quite comfortable 61 63 :D (y). After wining the first set easily, Vera went down 03, but once she broke back, she got past her and never looked back.

St Petersburg R2: Vera def Fiona Ferro 6-7(8) 7-5 7-6(2) :)

Not only some top quality tennis from Vera against a Top 50 player also some great endurance! I was exhausted after the first hour. :p

Unfortunately doubt will have much energy left for Lena's big doubles comeback on home soil but oh well.:LOL:

All Russian tie against a so far out of form Pavly or Gasanova next!
