Hey, Vera's had a really good season--racked up a lotta points (&$) and will play the YEC. I said elsewhere, but I'll put it here, too:


Vera is Vera, and sure she was upset--but I'm not. She put down Princess, which REALLY needed doing, and now she's been to the finals of two successive Slams--maybe third time's the charm. Fact is, as Virginia Wade pointed out, Vera was not ever missing the lines by much. Should compare the tapes of this match & the last one and find out what she was doing in the wind that she wasn't able to do tonight?


The only people who are concerned with Vera's emotion are those corporate fascist commentarial whores. Sure, THEY never cry--you gotta have a soul to cry. Stick out tongue

Venus & Vera won a lot of points, while Clijsters defended her title and only could loose points.

Wow I always knew about it but it always was so illogic to me, something like how water vapor reduces the density of the air  caused me loosing a challenge with the physics teacher.

Vera Zvonareva Very pleased to win my opening match in Tokyo. The win was especially sweet as I've never made it past the first round at this tournament before. Next match is Roberta Vinci.

Overall I think I played a good match but there is still room for
improvement, particularly with consistency. I need to be more consistent
and I didn’t show my best today but I played well when I needed to.The
conditions were different today, the roof was open and it was windy and
we had to get used to the conditions which affected both our games
throughout the match. But, overall, I am happy with the way I played.

"The best athletes of Russian always support their country."


Y'know, there's more to your signature line than meets the eye. [Y] There's not much professional tennis in my part of Texas, so I was looking through Junior ITF events close enough that I might actually go see them. (Turns out there are a couple. [:)])


There''s a noticable constituency with names like Savchuk, Kirilenko, Kuznetsov... the bulk of these are obviously emigré kids brought to the States from the former Soviet space. Now, this has been going on for a long time--but how's that working out for them?


Off the top of my head, I can only name Lepchenko, Jidkova, on the men's side Kuznetsov, who've ever made it into the professional circuit at all--and those have yet to distinguish themselves in any way.


There are unarguable benefits to the "foreign academies" in Europe & America. But the Russian stars we know have either held to the Motherland by one means or another and eventually returned home. For all the talk about what Russia doesn't have, this fact is undeniable.

Daughters and Winners of the WWII

СВЯЩЕННАЯ ВОЙНА

Get up, the giant country,
Get up for mortal fight
With German horde uncounted,
With forces of the night

Chorus:
Let noble anger of the soul
Get boiled as a wave.
The peoples war, the holy war.
Well fight until the grave.

Let's give repulse to oppressors
Of all the ardent thoughts.
To rapers and to murderers,
Let's say the swear words.

Chorus:

We will not let the darkened wings
Fly over Motherland.
The native country spacious fields
Are not for fiend's extend.

Chorus:

For rotten fascist pack we've got
A bullet and a bomb.
The spawn of the planet Earth
Must get into the tomb.

1941
