Chances are very slim for Ivanovic at Wimbledon.

Since I've been watching women's tennis (25 years), only Martina Navratilova, Steffi Graf and Serena Williams have made the transition successfully from clay to grass and made it count by winning Wimbledon and the French in the same year. Not looking good for Ana.

Re: Chances are very slim for Ivanovic at Wimbledon.

I think she should be pleased with one slam though! I think with her resting time and new confidence shes gonna do well, QF, maybe SF?

However much I dislike Ana, don't be like that. She's number 1 right now, so whatever. Granted, that'll be over come wimbledon

Re: Chances are very slim for Ivanovic at Wimbledon.

Well... if she has a draw like last year... she could do well. But she isn't winning it unless the top grasscourters are out of shape.

Re: Chances are very slim for Ivanovic at Wimbledon.

She did well last year when she made it to the finals of the 07 French Open & I really don't see the difference. The only difference is that she has even more confidence than she did last year because she won the French this year. So if she made it to the semis last year how far will she go this year with even more confidence?

I definitely agree with this. However, if she faces Venus again in the SF, it will be extremely difficult to overcome her. When Venus makes the latter stages of Wimbledon, it usually means that she's playing fantastic tennis.

Nonetheless, this thread is just ridiculous. I don't understand how someone can write off the No. 1 player in the world. At least wait until the draw comes out before you create your silly threads.

She´ll reach at least semi-finals if she doesn´t face Lindsay early!
