I saw Ana Ivanovic today and ...
I can tell you, she is much more than a pretty face, she is the real deal.
I haven't been so impressed by a new player in a long time. Watching her play I can tell you, she is going ot win grand slams, despite some people saying she hasn't done enough yet.
First, her game is very solid, her backhand can go a little wild but she will learn to control it, it's not bad technique.
Her server is great, not only powerful and well disguised and placed, but very, very consistent, her forehand is a real weapon.
She has power but she doesn't just kill the ball, she actually has an strategy, she constructs points and tries different things.
What impressed me the most is that when she was serving for the match at 5-4, she had a mini-choke, you could tell that her serves were a lot less powerful, she was just trying to keep the ball on play and got broken, and in the next game, Garbin held easily.
For many players that would have been it, or at least, they would have taken a few games to recover, Ana completely forgot her bad game and just went for it (she reminded me a lot of the old Monica in that regard).
I know it's only a match, but I don't really base any analysis on statistics and numbers, you can see the technique, you can see if they have the fire or not, Ana has the technique, and has the fire.
Mark my words, you heard it here first when Ana starts winning GSs.
