Anna Kournikova played singles in her WTT match tonight!

She lost to Angela Haynes 5-2, but I think that's her first set of competitive singles since her abrupt exit from tennis. Maybe I'm looking into it too much, but I really do think that she's testing the waters for a comeback by playing all three events instead of just the doubles.

She lost the doubles and mixed as well, but those were by 5-4 scores. Let's see if it gets any better with more matches.

Haynes is a good player. A decent first step.

definetely in the right direction. At least she's testing the waters! Please keep going Anna

Haynes can be a really good player, usually inconsistent but might've had a good night, however Kournikova could've been reallllly rusty tonight as well.


Please no bashing, let's just try to make this positive

Walk on with hope in your heart
And you'll never walk alone

Anna was one of the most talented players on the tour, it's a shame she never really acheived too much in singles and left the game so early.

But I don't think she's going to come back.

How the hell do you find results on the wtt.com site? It's awful.

that is a good result. Haynes may be inconsistent to the extreme but she has ability.

Nope, Bethanie Mattek. She's subbing in for Elena for three nights this week.

Yeah, I was wondering who they would get to play for them.

Since Nikki's got Fed Cup against France to concentrate on, Likhovtseva only just lost her Wimbledon Mixed match and Nastya Pavlyuchenkova is still in the junior doubles event with Kleybanova.
