    Dear Yaroslava,
    your match yesterday evening against the 5th seeded Jankovic was so great, I saw you the first time playing, only the third set, but what I saw there was fantastic, one of the best what I saw in the past. I did not know you before, but now I try to follow more of your great tennis. You are always postive thinking during the whole match, never give up and straight forward to make the point. I really hope that this result yesterday will not be the last victory at US Open 2009. Good luck for you in the next matches, will come back to you again.

    Hi Yaroslava
    watched your match on TV against Amelie Mauresmo yesterday at Melbourbe. I admire the tenacity you displayed in overcoming match-point after match point during the last 40 minutes of the match. The obvious delight each time was evident by the smaile on your face. You lost this one but look for ward to future matches. Best of luck.
