Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

I think it's her new way to pump herself up, and it works. Better than crying. Zvonareva changed her attitude, it's time for Anna to do it.

Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

There's a lot gamesmanship now.
Djokovic takes 5 minutes bouncing the ball before he serves.
Nadal takes forever.

They're going to have to start enforcing time rules.

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

Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

i thought it was excellent giving the barbaric israeli crowd back some of their bad behaviour. not sure if it's ok out of that context.

Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

Ivanovic is 100% more annoying doing it.

Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

Anna beat 3 french woman this week, so it may be some adversity between her and the parisian public.

Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

Her reactions during the Fed Cup are ok, imo. You play for your country, in a team and that's just the atmosphere there ... Her behaviour during the final in Paris was horrible! She wil get the crowds against her soon .. maybe Antwerp will do it already. Belgian public doesn't like it most of the time

Roland Garros '03,'05,'06,'07
US Open '03,'07 / Australian Open '04
Olympic Gold '04 /
YEC Madrid '06,'07
41 titles

But you could see the crowd was a FedCup crowd already, cheering for Agnes in the first place. I think Anna did OK.

Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

Anna is quite a tough little cookie.
I think she thrives on a bit of "banter" with the crowd, she gets on a roll and gets pumped up with it.

Anna raised her level in the third set, looked like a quality top 10'ner. Her problem is ..... consistency.

Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

Anna was playing in fed cup and then in Paris against 3 popular french players in one of the loudest crowds. If she would do to the French crowd the same gestures that she did in the fed cup, it could be very very ugly.

I will not go back to the Issue of the fed cup last weekend, I will just say again: Chaki is very very very very popular in Israel, before the fed cup and much more after last weekend.

Re: Anna Chakvetadze attitude

I like her attitude. It doesn't target the opponent (I don't think it affected Agnes in any way). She just pumps herself up. I think it's actually sexy.

True. How times have changed, huh? This tough girl act seems pretty new though as I was there when she played Maria in HK...and gosh, she was quiet as a mouse...miserable and depressed-looking. But then again, she has a habit of doing that against Maria. I guess she's carried her Fed Cup Chak-attack self over to Paris. It would be funny to see her doing this for her next tournaments. She's hilarious when on Chak-attack mode.
