I am here, Salar :). Just hard to watch only live scoring, Vera just lost first set 5-7 :(. But most games are very close.

Oh, Great to See you here !;)
Yeah, It's so bad that we don't have any stream !:sad:
Thanks, same to you! Yeah, no idea how Vera is really doing, just from a scoreline it looks like she's hanging in there. She broke back for *1-2 :)

Re: Vera's offical live scoring thread 2014. Episode: the return.

It was a though draw of course, but from a scoreline it does not look too bad after 1,5 years out of competition against # 3 of the world.

Her stats:

Aces: 3
DF: 5
1st serve percentage: 63% (26/40)
2nd serve percentage: 34% (8/34)
BP: 2/8
Total points won :66

Hopefully she let's us know soon her thoughts on this match and how she felt :). Despite the loss, so happy she is back :yeah:

Do you know the site where we can watch a live streaming? :confused:
Not sure it is THE site, but I always watch here. Click on the section tennis and all available streams will show. When it is streamed it is on there.

Re: Vera's offical live scoring thread 2014. Episode: the return.

well, i didn't watch the game (it was 6 am here) but the score was a bit out of expectations! maybe Dellaqua was very good !
Anyway the most important thing is that Vera is back and we can watch her games again !

When i saw the match statistics, her serves speed was a real surprise to me !

Vera's Average 1st serve speed was 154 KMH] an her Average 2nd serve speed was 134 KMH !
in comparison with the other R1 matches players, Vera's Average Serve Speed is better than palyers like Makarova (vs williams) , Vinci , Zheng, Benci, Date-Krumm, Flipkens (vs Robson) , Watson , Hantuchova, Zakopalova (vs Stosur) and even Angelique Kerber (vs Gajdosova) !

what do you think?
I think the shoulder was OK then ;).

Worrying is that Vera made 43 UE, where Dellaqua won just 67 points in total. And Vera only scored 9 points out of 44 on Dellaqua's serve. I think that says it all. Haven't seen the match of course, but you can tell that from the stats. But it is just her second match after the surgery and rehab. You can workout and train as hard as you can, but you can't train match practice. I think time and match practice is what Vera needs now.

How awful it may be, just hoping the result will be fine. For the moment I would take that.

*1-0 on bp 5. There has to be a record for most Bp's wasted.

Got the 2nd bp, *3-0. Now use the experience, Bepa, to not even have your opponent think of a comeback.
