Yes, Anna has really had a strong start to the 2002 year. Already 2 titles. Hopefully she can keep it going. It's good to see a petite player take on a big babe and win. Tough break for Meghann however.

BTW, does anyone know who has the most titles to date? She has to be up there.

I was checking the scores during my lunch break and when I had to leave, Meghann was up 5-1 in the first. I was delighted to come back and see Anna had won! She seemed to have trailed off a bit after winning those two titles, going out in the first round of her next two events, but here she has began another upward trend. Since Amanda Coetzer seems to be near the end of her career, maybe Smashy will take her place as the premier shorty in the game?

Anna must be super-fit - she did SO much running around it was quite amazing .

Congratulations to her on her win - she really got to Meghann towards the end.

Hopefully Emmanuelle will beat her in the qtrs though...

YEAH ANNA!!!

Although I was mad at her for beating AnnaK in Auckland, I must give this girl some credit!!! She is playing so well, and like Vanity said, she seems to have taken over the "best hustler/retriever" award this year so far. I've followed her results for a long time now and it's so nice to see her doing so well. Based on her H2H vs Gagliardi, you'd have to give her the edge:

1998 Roland Garros Clay (O) 64 Anna SMASHNOVA 5-7 6-0 6-1
1999 Amelia Island Clay (O) 64 Anna SMASHNOVA 7-5 6-1
2000 Berlin Clay (O) 64 Emmanuelle GAGLIARDI 6-7(4) 4-6
2000 Knokke-Heist Clay (O) 16 Anna SMASHNOVA 6-2 6-2

Anna SMASHNOVA (ISR) leads 3 : 1

She's got a nice draw, and that has helped her, but beating Meghann is tremendous. Good luck to her!!!

Dream final: Anna vs. Amanda (Amanda wins in 3 tough ones of course!!!)

You have to take into account that clay is Anna's best surface. Hard is Gagliardi's best. I think that makes it pratically a toss-up.

If Emmanuelle plays with the fire she has had, I think she'll win. Smashnova did upset Shaughnessy, but that's not a rare thing these days.

Are you sure about that Scotso? Anna got killed by Gala Leon-Garcia in Mexico. And her best results are on hard courts.

No - Anna has generally been strongest on clay ---- but that was the old Anna - this Anna is kicking ass anywhere!

GO ANNA

Gala is an amazing claycourter.

I'm still convinced Emmanuelle is in a groove and will beat Anna.
