Chakvetadze ability to...

Zap energy out of crowds.
I started to notice this ability during FED CUP/US Open Series.
At first I thought it was the American crowd not taken a liking to her but as time has gone on I've noticed it's her.
She has no on-court personality and her gamestyle lulls you into this place you really don't want to be while watching tennis.
There's no showmanship.
It's kinda like the music in Super Mario at stages, when you go happen to be in water.

It's like that.
Is it a plus against this crowd in Israel or even then is it still a negative?

Re: Chakvetadze ability to...

I like Anna a lot, but I can definitely see your point of view and agree. She does get emotional on court, but her game itself is very calm and fluid. It should work to her advantage in Israel because it is her natural working environment.

LOL, after seeing what she just did, there's no way she has no personality on court.

OMG! I've never seen anything like this! Great for Anna if she pulls through, but I hate to imagine if she were to lose...
