USO 2R: Anna Chakvetadze Painstakingly Put Away Nik Pratt 63 64 :smash:

I thought the match would be MUCH easier for Chakvetadze but she made it difficult, like pulling teeth

top players should be able to put away Pratt with the loss of less than 4 games ... it is basically like a practice session with a 14 year old junior

Routine victory. Next is Mirza, who Anna has never lost to.
She has to pick it up a little to beat Sharapova.

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

She played horrible, watched it on direct tv, she went for way too much against pratt and made tooo many errors.

She won...

...but bad match by Anna's standards. She was clearly a class above yet made it so difficult for herself. I don't think she'll be happy with her performance at all.

And she'll probably be out on the practice court later working on her drive volleys.

It wasn't a good match from Anna for sure.

But a win is a win. Congrats Anna!

She has to play better against Mirza/Granville if she want to reach 4th round.

Re: USO 2R: Anna Chakvetadze Put Away Nik Pratt 63 64

lets take a look at Pratt's losses to elite players in 2005-2007

l Jankovic 16 36
l Clijsters 26 16
l Li 06 06
l V Williams 57 36
l Pierce 16 16
l Mauresmo 16 26
l Safina 16 06
l Hingis 06 16
l Clijsters 16 26
l Safarova 06 16
l Vaidisova 36 26

why so difficult for Chakvetadze ???
I think this proves she is not Elite Player
