Chakvetadze's Comments After The Match...

http://sports.yahoo.com/ten/news;_yl...v=ap&type=lgns

Quote:
Chakvetadze, a Russian won her seventh tour title indoors at Paris earlier this year, faced Cirstea on a blustery day. Temperatures were in the high 50s and winds gusted to more than 30 mph, but Chakvetadze wasn’t blaming the conditions.

“She just pushed the ball back and I made mistakes,” she said. “I think it’s just the way I’m playing right now.”
Basically calling Sorana a pusher.
Why has she been struggling so much to get the ball in the court this year? Oh yeah, because she shouldn't even be Top 10 in the first place.

Re: Chakvetadze's Comments After The Match...

when you're ranked 5th and every player ranked 1-4 and 6 beats you easily, it can't do much for the confidence

Poor Anna, sometimes she is just so depressing.

Why are people so bitchy?

This is great for Sorana.

Next year, she will be in the RG semis.

(In line with Myskina's comments about Nicole )

Clijsters, Henin, Dementieva, Davenport.

Re: Chakvetadze's Comments After The Match...

Anna didn't say Sorana was a weak player. She said she was making all the mistakes.
It's nothing like Myskina's comment.

Lovely seeing Anna call someone a pusher.

When Anna plays well, she's soo much fun to watch. But when she's not, it's just

What are you talking about? She's right. I will repeat myself that Anna's inability to keep the ball in play has nothing to do with the rankings. Her coaches just made her play like a stupid ballbashing machine and it seems there is no easy way back. But she still has time to make it work, although I don't think she will.
This shit about the rankings and who deserves or doesn't deserve to be where really has gotten out of hand on this board.

But if labelling someone a "pusher" is not insulting, then...

Re: Chakvetadze's Comments After The Match...

Did you see the 3rd set? I didn't. She's talking about a strategy, when you play someone who's making a lot of ue's.

It is down the same alley. Calling her a pusher is definitely calling her a weak player.
Although Nastya was much more catty and rude.

I mean I haven't seen Sorana play so I don't know if she has a valid point or not, but saying things like that to the press just isn't good sportsmanship. She is Top 10 in the world, she should have found a way to win even if Sorana is a pusher.

Re: Chakvetadze's Comments After The Match...

Unless you saw it, you don't know.
Myskina won RG by hitting a lot of balls down the middle and letting Venus and Jen make ue's.
And if it's very windy and your opponent is making ue's, playing safe is smart.

Sorana is definitely not a pusher. She was outhitting Ivanovic at the AO and is very erratic. Big first serve as well.
