News about Anna's comeback & new exhibition

Anna watch

http://www.chron.com/cs/CDA/ssistory...ts/ten/2403373

-- The rumors continue to swirl that Anna Kournikova has retired, but her April 15 exhibition at River Oaks International remains in the works. Kournikova's agent told River Oaks tournament director Van Barry that retirement will not happen anytime soon.



Kournikova is playing World Team Tennis, but since she is still recovering from a back injury, she does not plan to play WTA events until the clay court season begins. River Oaks is finalizing plans with 17-year-old American Carly Gullickson, who has tentatively agreed to play Kournikova in the exhibition match. They played each other Nov. 28 in an exhibition in Portland, Ore., during which Kournikova won the afternoon session 6-2 and lost the evening session 6-3.

Anna really needs to play an actual event sometime soon to gain any credibility back....I hope she does finally return to the tour this year.

LOL which clay court season is he talking about ? Obviously not the US clay court events, because April 15th is during Charleston.

Pathetic.

The last time Kournikova defeated a topppayer was JenniC at the 2000 Tour Championships. It's been so long since she played at a high level. And playing exos look more and more like simple paychecks, as the ads and magazine covers dwindle. I remember when four of the magazines at my local newstand had Anna K on the cover. Now none of them do, and I haven't seen her on in months and moths and months. No ads on TV either.

She's not going to recover her endorsement revenue playing exos.

Not blind. Not uninformed. We are party to atrocities. But the response of the world after 9/11 is worth noting. Even our most dire enemies offered aid. We should all be so lucky.

There's no rush for Anna to come back. She needs to be mentally ready to do all the work involved in a comeback.

Anna was on the Maxim cover last fall. And she's on the SI swimsuit cover now.

LOL Volcana

Anna is doing just fine. More than you and I can ever aspire of. Those endorsement revenue you're talking about are just at an arms length for Ms. Kournikova.She's the darling of tennis after all. It doesn't take much for her to get the attention she needs.

my pet cybelou is amused with you.hehe.. meow meow!

Volcana's post is retarded. Anna beat Sugiyama in the Shanghai semis.

The European clay court season starts at April 12th with a tier IV in Estoril. Why isn't she playing that one ? Why another useless exo instead ? It can't be a good idea to start her comeback at a tier II (Warsaw) or tier I (Berlin).

Of course she won't play there either. She should just come out and say that she will only play hit-and-giggle competitions from now on, then everything would be fine.

I heard that Anna has been surpassed in website hits by the Arizona State softball pitcher Jennie Fitch.
