Slowly, but surely, more good news keeps coming in . Still won't hang out the flag until she actually is on court.
Yes, the draw is terrible, but on the other hand, I don't care. The fact that Vera is back is beyond who she plays. It is even a good test I think where she is against a top player and how her rehab the past few months has paid off. I want her, but don't expect her to win. The way back will be long and though, so why not start against Li anywayShenzhen Singles Main Draw is out: (THE Worst Possible Draw)

Bit surprised, as Pavs retired last week from her singles match in Brisbane due to a thigh injury and today she lost relatively easy to Riske in 2 sets in Hobart. Wonder if it is wise for Pavs to play doubles as well as she seems a bit vulnerable at the moment. We'll see.Vera will play doubles with Pavlyuchenkova in Melbourne.
Happy she's playing doubles, but I'd hoped Sveta would partner her again.
Pavs ditched Watson to play with Bepa.
+1. I am sure as well, Vera said she likes to play in the heat. But it still could have been a factor. Has anyone seen or read a comment from vera after the match?I don't think so, she said that she actually likes playing in the heat; so I don't think it was really a factor.
Bepa and Nop won 60 64 . First win of the year, even though it is doubles, still unexpected though, but I bet Katya and Lena still felt the aftermath of Friday's final.Also Her Doubles R1 Match in Pattaya:
