Anna K. Comeback?

I know there have been a million threads about Anna's weight, in fact, there is another one on this page in GM. But this thread is positive and I think I should share my thoughts about her future here.


^ At this stage Anna had a model's body and did not look too athletic at all.


^ Then around the US open this year, she looked a bit stronger.


^ And from Istanbul very recently, her arms look to have built up some muscle again.


^ Finally, another example from Barcelona. Look at her calves, they have some definition in this photo.

I could be wrong, but all of this suggests to me that Anna has been training, or at least been back on the court this year. This could point to a possible comeback in doubles sometime in '07. What do you all think?

Daniela Hantuchova.

Casey Dellacqua, Jelena Jankovic, Anna-Lena Groenefeld,
Jelena Dokic, Mirjana Lucic, Sara Tomic, Sloane Stephens
Melanie Oudin, Kaia Kanepi, Alison Riske

Re: Anna K. Comeback?

I'd love,love,love to see her back. She's vastly underrated by the public opinion, they seem to have forgotten she's been top 10 and was a teenager when she played the semi's in Wimbledon. I love her play too, it's always great to see her play. Saw her in Antwerp at the Diamond Games once, where she lost the quarter against Venus. The crowd was behind Anna though :P And in the first set she really wasn't playing worse than Venus!

I'm all alone with my delusions

there is no doubt that sharapova is the superior tennis player, but kournikova beat graf, davenport, seles, hingis, capriati -- on her best day, she could have probably shown sharapova a thing or two

Bolletieri said Anna was more talented but Maria was the hard-workerer in trainings what do you think?

The only problem is that the pic with NOW written on it is from one or two weeks ago so... As everybody can se she isnt atletic or even near to atletic

Re: Anna K. Comeback?

no way ana can return for singles.
she is way too thin, she won't even last for one set.

pity such a talent got wasted. it is also good that maria manage to learn from those mistakes.

Hingis Fan since 1997

Anna was definitely more talented at posing for sleazy magazines. As for tennis, LOL.
