Talking I can't believe how much Ana improved in 1 week!!!

or was it always there and is this the same girl that got blown out by Zvanareva ?

I just saw highlights and she was playing absolutelly sensational tennis with a sort of a controlled aggression that shows a great talent and she blowing Pova's balls back with authority, purpose and precision. Pova couldn't help it and it's too bad she decided to quit.

Most of all I am delighted how much she improved her serve and movement . I realize it's just one tourney and I am mindful of Montreal and aftermath but I love her potential again, I can't help it .

Hingis will have it tough tomorrow but please Ana don't go into another funk after and maybe she should steer away from coaches for now

Re: I can't believe how much Ana improved in 1 week!!!

i guess she just doesnt feel pressure now. She's more relaxed. She still has her fitness coach with her, but i guess Taylor was trying to make new Molik out of her, and she was fed up with that and didnt feel comfortable. Whatever she does tomorrow she's been great this week. She proved it by defeating Jelena in 3 sets, so there's no way Jelena could be playing badly.

NO


Jankovic suffers from severe Chinese syndrome! Only God can help her!

Re: I can't believe how much Ana improved in 1 week!!!

the question is can she keep it up NEXT week?? i think thats been the story of Ana's career thus far...

azarenka - pavlyuchenkova - li - jankovic
garcia - bencic - paszek - rus - kanepi - kuznetsova - stephens
bouchard - karatantcheva - larcher de brito - voegele - lim - mladenovic

mary pierce - forever #1
vaidisova - kournikova - golovin - henin
the boys - federer - gasquet - del potro - haase - nishikori

Exactly.

All of her fans were saying she'll make the semis of the USO, but she lost to Serena pretty tamely in the 3R.

She's beaten a tired Jankovic and an injured Sharapova.

I think we need to wait a bit and see.

And she hasn't really improved.

She's just up and down.

Re: I can't believe how much Ana improved in 1 week!!!

of course. if Ana beats Martina we will have to hear how she only won it because Jankovic was tired and Maria injured.

Jankovic made it one round further in the Australian Open..why is she tired and Ana not? Do you really think that tennis players have that poor conditioning?

She really hasnt improved at all. She barely survived Jankovic and then got lucky because Sharapova had to retire
