American youngster CiCi Bellis has seen her profile steadily surge with her impressive game after game top performance.

The 18-year old defeated German Julia Goerges at the Rogers Cup in Toronto. She is ranked at career high of No. 36 but she has posted 12-4 against players in the top 50. She has won 16 WTA games and continues to shine.

Bellis defeated Goerges 4-6, 6-3, 6-2 and avenges her loss to the competitor at the Mallorca event earlier in the summer. She recently defeated second seeded wildcard Petra Kvitiva at the WTA Stanford tournament, where she reached the last four before exiting. The 5’7’’ star impressed in front of her home fans of Northern Californiawith her aggressive style of play as she knocked out the two-time tennis Wimbledon champ.

While Bellis might need to improve her power hitting, she is a firebrand and fierce fighter with strong focus. Against Goerges, she saved six of nine break points and won most of her first serve points. She is setting her sights higher this time as she defeated her rival in one hour 53 minutes on Tuesday.

Svetlana Kuznetsova is setting her sights on the Dubai Duty Free Tennis Championships after three final features in 13 years.

The tour veteran seems to be keen on blooming late in her career as she is playing very good tennis. After a strong showing at the Wimbledon last year, she returned to the top ten in the rankings for the first time since 2010.

The 31-year old Russia international has reached the final three times, facing Justine Henin in 2004, then battling Elena Dementieva four years later before meeting Caroline Wozniacki in 2011.

Kuznetsova had a relatively impressive 2016, particularly the second half of the year. She retained her Moscow title then she went on to reach the last four in Wuhan and Tianjin. She reached the quarterfinals in Cincinnati and Montreal and then the last four at the WTA Finals in Singapore.

This year she has started well, reaching the fourth round of the Australian Open – which had a lot of surprises. She has played in Dubai thirteen times, missing just once in 2003. She would be featuring in the tournament as one of the top ten players. Read more »

Svetlana Kuznetsova will find Serena Williams at the opposition end

Svetlana Kuznetsova will find Serena Williams at the opposition end when she turns up to play her fourth round match at Miami tomorrow.

These two players have hardly played against each other in the last couple of seasons.

Kuznetsova would be highly confident ahead of the showdown just because of the way she beat Angelique Kerber, an experienced German player, in her previous match.

Kerber was chipping away quite nicely there in that fixture, but, Kuznetsova made a late resurgence and ended up on top to set a date with Serena.

Serena, on the other hand, did not have a tough competition in round no. 3 as she had to deal with a qualifying teenager CiCi Bellis.

Though Bellis is much hyped around, but, at 15 years of age, to tackle Serena was just too much of ask for her.

As far as the rivalry between Serena and Kuznetsova is concerned, there are 9 matches played between them so far and as one would expect, most of them have been won by the former.

Serena has toppled Kuznetsova in 7 of those games and has been beaten in 2. Read more »
