{Annie}
01-16-2008, 01:59 PM
This is what I managed to find here in General Messages.

first he had some problems with his right thigh and called bastholt in the second set and during a rally in the first game of the third set he tripped, hurt his ankle and called it a day

:awww:

Mrs. Fabregas
01-16-2008, 04:18 PM
Yeap, this is totally right :awww:

He had a medical time out in the 2nd set, so that he could be treated on the right thigh (:aplot: with a very nice massage on court :devil:) and then in the 3rd set he tripped after a returnshort, fell and stopped playing :sad:

It was so sad, he fought so hard!!!!

Poor baby Zhenya, recover soon, babe :hug:!

*Ljubica*
05-04-2008, 07:09 PM
:wavey: I watched the match today. It was actually a pretty hard match! Evgeny started well and went 5-1 up really quickly, but credit to the "old man" Jonas - he fought and fought and pulled the match back to 5-5 and it went to a tie-break, which was really close. Second set was slightly easier.

I sat with Daddy Korolev for a while, but it was just so hot near the court, that after a while I had to move to the back which is in the shade. I am still badly sunburnt though :awww:

He showed some really good shots today, but also seemed a bit uncomfortable, and suffering with the heat quite a bit.

Bye for now from Rome :wavey:

~*BGT*~
05-05-2008, 03:36 AM
Were you able to talk to his father? If you see him again, please ask him about Evgeny's serve and what they are doing to fix it. It's his biggest weakness in my opinion. And although he has changed the service motion, it's still not very much stronger. He has a low 1st serve percentage and hits too many double faults. :secret: TBH, what I think he really needs is a new coach but don't tell Papa that. :angel:

Ooooh, make sure to take lots and lots of pics. Especially if he happens to be practicing with Safin or someone like that. :D

L.R
05-05-2008, 06:23 PM
He changed it twice, starting last year when he came back after long injury break... i don't know exactly why they changed it in a first place though... he used to have an extremely precise and powerful serve, Roddick style... now it's completely different and he obviously doesn't master it well, which mostly explains the "bad" results he had lately.

I say "bad" considering his potential, he's experiencing some stagnation when he should be raising up in the ranking... I hope he'll soon find a way to fix this. Starting by fixing that serve !!

btw, his dad is scary at first... but in fact really sweet if you're brave enough to face him ! lol

:wavey: Yes I did speak with him - but only general stuff about how hot it was, and the city of Rome - that kind of stuff. Nothing technical, as I don't think I would dare to do that :o I also watched the match with Soderling today - he played very well after a shaky start.......... but, no,I wasn't with Daddy this time, - I was on the other side of the court because I came a little late to the match having watched some practice sessions with Dima and Nole first. If I get a chance to ask him on another occasion, I will do my best :)

(WC)Seifer vs (8)Korolev

:awww:

L.R
05-10-2008, 02:49 PM
He just won, but he's been struggling really hard ... Seifert is ranked 533 and was leading 5/2 in the first set, while Zhenya was at 44% of first serve ... waaaaay not enough !

final score : 7/6(1) 4/6 6/3
honestly he could have lost... the experience made him go through not the game ! (even though i couldn't watch, it's just obvious)

anyway... we'll may have a Zhenya vs Marat next round... that's gonna be interesting !

I personally think it will be very hard for him to beat Marat :sad: I know Marat is poor right now, but I've always found it seems really hard for young players to play an older fellow-countryman, especially one who has achieved so much and become such an "idol" in their home country, as Marat has. I will be cheering for Zhenya though :)

L.R
05-10-2008, 05:12 PM
i should have say "technically" instead of "seriously" ! lol
i agree with u, specially considering marat is like his absolute idol ! ... but i truly think tennistically speaking he could beat him, but probably not tomorrow, even though Marat is a mess right now... thing is, Zhenya is a mess too ... he's way behind his real level... so i guess the winner will be the one with the most nerves to hold on despite his own weaknesses...

i'll be cheering for zhenya as well... as always ... ;)

i followed on scoreboard... he ends the match with 7 more points won than marat, that was really close... i guess i'm kinda proud of him !! :smoke:

Yes - me too :hug: I admit I didn't follow the scoreboard because Nole's match was on TV, - but I'm pleased that the result was so close. It is all great experience for Zhenya :)

i just came back from RG today ... was at Zhenya's practice and match ... he did really well !
he defeated Bachinger 6/0 6/4 ... consistent, precise, powerful...
except the fact he was leading 3/1 in the second set and then lost a bit of concentration, started to get annoyed, grumbling, and obviously offered a few easy games to his opponent... but he managed to hold on ... well done then ! :)

anyway... we'll may have a Zhenya vs Marat next round... that's gonna be interesting !

:devil: And interesting it was :drool: I was so torn during the Match ... Obviously i was cheering for marat, but i didn't want Zhenya to loose too :sad:

Wish I could watch this. :drool:

:aplot: I did it, totally live :lick:

Can't wait for the draw!! :bounce: Hope he doesn't draw one of my other babies: Rafa, Richie, Ancic.... would like to see him battle against his generation though: Cilic, Gulbis, del Potro :dance:

next round of qualies he plays De Chaunac, i probably won't be there (i have presentations i can't miss) i'm so so sad and stressed, playing a french guy in RG, even in qualies is really tough when u have no one else than ur crew to cheer for u... the whole crowd is gonna support LOUDLY De Chaunac...

he should reach the MD though, he is totally able to beat De Chaunac, and his possible next opponent... so just like u i hope he doesn't draw one of my other desperate cases ! :)

:awww:The French crowd canl be bad, but de Chaunac is beatable I think,and playing against the crowd as well as the player, is something all players have to get used to! I'm sure he will be fine:) Will try and follow the scoreboard from work as much as I can - and I am going to Paris on Saturday - so he had better qualify :)

He won his match in 3. He was up 4-0 and had a break point but ended up winning in 6-4.

RG's organisation is ununderstandable ... i missed the match !! i thought he would play tomorrow, so i didn't go although i had the day off !! ... shit !!

anyway i was moraly supporting via the scoreboard ... i'm glad he won, but he could have cut it in two sets... i won't try to guess what happened... i'm kinda unsure what to think of the score ! lol

05-23-2008, 04:35 PM
:awww: Poor Zhenya. He lost today in qualifying to Jean-Rene Lisnard. The score was 7-5, 4-6, 6-8........... how close and heartbreaking :tears: I hope there is some chance he might get in as a Lucky Loser. Zhenya :hug:

I thought after he made the comeback in the 2nd set (he was down 4-0 and got back to 4-4) I thought he might pull it off but it was not so. :tears:

:secret: I know this isn't a good thing :secret: But Kiefer might pull out and Jo Tsonga withdrew from his match today so Zhenya MIGHT get in!! :bounce:

~*BGT*~

He is really getting f'ed over here. :fiery: There have been so many withdrawals that Evgeny, as one of the highest seeds who lost in R 3 of qualifications, should get in as a LL. But the new rule states that all the final round losers get placed into a pool and drawn into the MD. So he has the same chance to get in as a non-seed. So unfare. :tears:

it doesn't really matter now, i think he left already, i saw him yesterday in the beginning of the afternoon, and asked about the possibility of him being LL, he said he didn't think it will happen... and that he will leave soon...

About the match, he was really tired in the last set, hard muscles and so on... plus, Lisnard being pissed off by some litigeous point raised up his level, and Zhenya started to have trouble with his first serve... all in all, it was close, but he lost... a bit unfair considering Lisnard's attitude towards the empire... he was lucky not to get a second warning... it would have changed a lot of things i think...

anyway, Zhenya has moved on quickly, he was doing fine yesterday ! ;)

Where's he playing next? Anyone know? Perhaps the Surbiton Challenger? I know he is an ALT for Halle and Warsaw but with his ranking he could have gotten in directly to Queen's :o .

i asked, his next one is Warsaw ;)

correction : he's still here in Paris... he's gonna wait untill tuesday i guess, for the end of the first round, he still has a chance to get in...

i hope he will, he deserves it more than some of those who already got in... :tape:

i guess so ! :lol:
he trained about half an hour ago, i don't know yet when he'll play tomorrow... i just hope he'll be on a court i can go to ! ... i'll find a way anyway ... :rolleyes:

~*BGT*~
05-26-2008, 03:53 PM
If it's Santoro, he might be on Court 2!! :banana: That's a show court, which means it has cameras, which means, it'll be shown online. :banana:

L.R
05-26-2008, 04:49 PM
the thing is, there's no "big ones" tomorrow, so Santoro being French they could end up on one of the two central courts...
we'll see... :)

L.R
05-26-2008, 07:24 PM
third match, court 7 ... that's one with cameras ! ;)
that's also where he played Gaudio two years ago... let's hope the ending will be different ! :)

let's cheer it up !
