Anna just keeps winning

Anna Chakvetadze won her singles and doubles today. I happy for her, but when will she run out of energy? She's been playing a lot lately!

Re: Anna just keeps winning

she dosent play a phsyical game (everything is precises and measured and no energy is wasted) so i think she will be fine! im just so happy that shes doing so well and im glad shes picking up doubles wins as well now i think thats a sign of her confidence growing! the only thing i worry about with her playing so much is injury but fatiuge no!

Haha I nicknamed her "guppy" after her match against Dani. She kept opening and closing her mouth like a little fish. It was SOOO cute!

Re: Anna just keeps winning

Well she has a few weeks off this summer so she'll be fine. Not everybody needs a month off in between tournaments.

My Favourites: Dancevic, Hantuchova, Gasquet, Golovin, Roddick, Sharapova, Stepanek

Re: Anna just keeps winning

According to her, she is getting tired. The rest of this draw will be very tough for her if she runs into Venus or Daniela. Daniela came close to beating her last week.

"I do have confidence, but I feel I am tired as well. It's tough to play too much tennis, especially since last week I was playing doubles and singles," said Chakvetadze, who is playing doubles with Victoria Azarenka.

I haven't come up with a nickname for Ana yet. Usually "THE HOTNESS" works quite nicely.

Re: Anna just keeps winning

I like Anna but these wins over the past couple of weeks don't really change her standing in the game much in my opinion because she hasn't beaten anybody you wouldn't expect her to. this week will be a good with better players in the field but as has been said she may be tired.

Re: Anna just keeps winning

When she plays Venus in QF I expect.

Sharapova / Bartoli / Azarenka / Rezaď
Cornet / Karatantcheva / Kirilenko
Safina / Dulko / Görges / Shvedova
Fedak / Czink / Harkleroad / Gallovits
Kleybanova / A.Bondarenko / Watson

Re: Anna just keeps winning

Streaking Chakvetadze continues her winning ways

By: HEATHER HAWTHORNE - Staff Writer
LA COSTA -- Still on a high from taking consecutive titles at Cincinnati and Stanford, Russian phenom Anna Chakvetadze eliminated American Meghann Shaughnessy 6-4, 6-4 on Wednesday at the Acura Classic at the La Costa Resort and Spa.

"I do have confidence," said Chakvetadze, who recently hit her career-high ranking of No. 6 in the world. "But, I feel that I'm tired as well and it's tough to play so much tennis."

Chakvetadze may have been fighting fatigue, but she hid it well, opening strong with a 5-2 lead that included two service breaks.

The 28-year-old Shaughnessy, who is ranked No. 43, broke the Russian's three service game count and held her own serve to make the score 5-4.

It was then Chakvetadze's serve.

The Russian completed her first set point with a flawless ace that brought the crowd at Stadium Court to its feet.

Despite the difference in rankings, Chakvetadze and Shaughnessy battled through the second set that looked as though it could have easily stretched to three.

"I think it was tough," said Chakvetadze, who lost to Shaughnessy in their first head-to-head meeting last year at Istanbul. "Maybe the score is just 6-4, 6-4 but I think it was mentally tough and physically tough."

The veteran Shaughnessy, who trounced Russia's Olga Poutchkova 6-3, 6-1 on Tuesday in the first round of her eighth appearance at the Acura Classic, wasn't going to let the 20-year-old prevail effortlessly.

Shaughnessy launched into the second set with a vengeance and took the lead 3-1. With very few long rallies, the second set momentum seemed to bounce back and forth, coming down to personal errors rather than one player outperforming the other.

Chakvetadze broke the unseeded American's serve and went on to win four consecutive games to lead 5-3.

But the set looked far from over as Shaughnessy, the owner of six career titles, once again held her serve bringing the second set to 5-4; an eerily familiar point.

Once again, it was Chakvetadze's serve.

The No. 3-seeded Chakvetadze hammered an ace to reach match point and Shaughnessy gave the match away by netting a forehand volley, tying her head-to-head meetings with the Russian 1-1.

Chakvetadze, who received a bye into round two of the Acura Classic, will face Japan's Ai Sugiyama today in the second match of the afternoon session at the grandstand court.

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE
