Anna versus Venus Again!

Anna gets another opportunity to determine how far and fast her improvement has come. In a second round match at Dubai, she again goes up against Venus. It has been my experience, that the more you play Venus the tougher it becomes. So I predict tough sledding (since we are in the winter olympics) for the Russian native. Anna will win a tournie (tier IV) this year.

Beat'em down Ms Williams, beat'em down!
SERENA PRINCESS OF POWER

Victoria Duval - coming to a slam near you
Françoise Abanda definitely a future #1 --- Taylor Townsend devastation on the march
Venus and Serena ferocious grannies --- Kimiko Date Krumm great granny still doing her thing.

Anna actually has the weapons to slow Venus down. She can slice off both sides, and she's fast. If she can consistently keep the ball low, and make Venus generate her own pace, Anna could make it interesting. Of course, the way Anna actually plays is nothing like that.

I think Anna CAN beat Venus.

The problem is she can't seem to keep it together during the match.

But all that's going to turn around very soon. Anna's going to win this one. And then go on to win the whole tournament.

Oh, d-g! You made me smile. But I like your enthusiasm though.
Go Venus all the same.

You should send a private e-mail to Anna

I am actually looking forward to Anna winning her 1st tournament. I just don't want her to beat Venus in the process. I'm going to be rooting for Venus all the way. I'll have to support Anna in another tournament.

Just on a lark:

What if by some miracle Anna does beat Venus? When next weeks rankings come out, Anna will have beaten SEVEN #1's.

Wink

actually dh, Venus technically won't be #1 until Monday, so if Anna wins, it won't count as a victory over the #1, just the #1 seed.

Actually Anna has only beaten Martina when she was ranked #1 at the time..

However what dh is refering too, is that she would have beaten the past 7 players to reach #1 (not actually #1 at the time she beat them, but have been #1)

Steffi, Monica, Martina, Arantxa, Lindsay and Jennifer

I actually agree with Volcana, I saw Anna play live at the Erickson in Miami a few years ago, I thought she was amazing, if anyone told me back then that Anna would still be chasing her 1st WTA single titles a few years later, I would not believe it.
