Won my first match of 2010 and my ankle feels pretty good! I played Ayumi Morita of Japan in Hong Kong today and won 6-2, 6-2. I have tomorrow off and then will play another singles match on Friday night and then mixed doubles with Yevgeny Kafelnikov on Saturday night. That should be a fun

Match 1: Vera Zvonareva def. Ayumi Morita 6-2 6-2

This match stood in stark contrast to the Sharapova-Zheng match later on both in terms of its competitiveness and the atmosphere within stadium court. With no Sharapova in the matchup, with no Venus in the contest, the crowd tried to rally behind Morita but soon realized that it just wasn’t worth it. The crowd didn’t care who won, and even occasional good shots didn’t elicit much applause from the quiet audience.

The match began with a beautiful inside-out backhand return winner from Zvonareva, and after one game it was clear that a demolition was about to unfold. Zvonareva didn’t have to do anything too special, and points usually ended with a Morita error. Zvonareva basically just had to stay in the rally, move her opponent around, and the error would come flying off Morita’s racquet. Whatever Morita did, Zvonareva was just that much better at doing it. She moved better, hit harder, had better tactics, was more consistent, served better, returned better.

One thing I must comment on is Morita’s return. Disregarding her near inability to return a first serve, her second serve return is truly cause for concern. There were only two possible scenarios for her second serve return: either she would hit it back short in the middle of the court waiting to be thwacked away, or she would hit it deep but straight at where Zvonareva was waiting and right into her hitting zone. Either way the results were the same, and the only way Morita got points on Zvonareva’s serve were when Zvonareva made a sloppy error.

Morita’s best moment in the match definitely came in the second to lost game, when she went up 40-0 on her own serve before being pushed back to deuce. She played some excellent points to hold her own serve, saving three match points along the way. One such point was a delightful half-volley winner at the first deuce, and a series of two-fisted groundstroke winners to save match points. No matter how she fought, however, there was never going to be any comeback. That much was obvious in the entire 2nd set, and sure enough Zvonareva closed it out comfortably.

 CHARLESTONSunday, April 18, 2010 FINAL


Stadium NB 13.00hrs EDT-US (17:00 GMT) (18:00 BST-UK) (19:00 CET) EUROSPORT, ESPN2, TennisTv.com , streams
Samantha Stosur vs. Vera Zvonareva SEE LIVE STREAMS thread.


I'm still cheering for Vera, of course. Press & crowd are already pre-primed to coronate Stosur. Not a damned bit of sympathy for Vera's truly devastating injury there last year--'course not, damned Russian...


 Cool ДАВАЙ ВЕРОЧКА!!!  


Oh! Guess who is coaching Vera at Charleston? Sam Sumyk! Guess that explains why Vika is suddenly on the press sh!t-list: It's no longer possible to conceal how close Azarenka is with a nasty Russian! lol!


Noticed that recently WTA & their Fed Cup site cronies are trumpeting Andrea Petkovic's "apprenticeship" with some German government figure. [:^)] Think maybe it irks someone that Zvonareva has a government post? [:)]

Vera Zvonareva Crazy day yesterday as my wallet got stolen when I was getting my
credential on site. It is not a good feeling and had to call and cancel my
credit cards, bank card, etc. I hope this doesn't happen to anyone else because
it isn't fun.
I guess
things can only get better now, right?
