IW QF : Ana Ivanovic vs Sybille Bammer

Bottom half of the draw has opened up nicely for Ana as the major players has been eliminated. Ana will have an easier time on Thursday then she had against Flavia. Ana in 2.

Re: IW QF : Ana Ivanovic vs Sybille Bammer

If Sybille plays like she did in the last 3 rounds she will be able to give Ivanovic some trouble.

They played 3 times already, Ivanovic leads 2-1. Except the last match (6-2 6-4 in Linz for Ana) all matches went to three sets. Ivanovic doesn´t like Sybille´s game, so there is hope for Bam Bam to reach the Semis

Re: IW QF : Ana Ivanovic vs Sybille Bammer

Ana should win this, she played quite well yesterday. Her forehand was working quite good (though not as good as it is capable of)

Re: IW QF : Ana Ivanovic vs Sybille Bammer

Ana is gradually getting her game back. But really honestly don't see her beating Bammer right now. Bammer has played the best tennis of anyone in the bottom half of the draw and I think she is the more likely winner. Bammer, playing well is quite a formidable player. She has beaten Ana, Jelena and several other very good players in Indian Wells in the past and looks capable of doing it again. Ana against Flavia was barely winning half her points on serve, that won't cut it against Sybille. Ana is going to have to raise her game substantially to survive. It might happen, it's true Ana at her best > Sybille at her best, but my guess is Sybille in 2.

Re: IW QF : Ana Ivanovic vs Sybille Bammer

Sybille beat Ana here two years ago and like Chris I'm not ruling out her chances of repeating that victory at all.


I just hope it's a good match between two of my faves, but of course I will be rooting for Ana!

let's hope your prediction will be proven as accurate as the one you made about Linz final

Re: IW QF : Ana Ivanovic vs Sybille Bammer

Tough, tough match for Ana. She's steadily playing better, but her form is still relatively patchy. Bamnmer is an opponent who forces you to play your best, or something close to it anyway. She can change up the pace on her groundstrokes, and her court-positioning isn't very interchangable. She holds her ground well.

That said if Ana can pull out her best tennis, then she'll win in 2, because she has the firepower off the forehand to start moving Bammer around. If not then Ana in 3, but probably Bammer in 3.

Good match to look forward to

I can't remember offhand what happened at Linz or what I predicted but I assume from this post that I got it wrong. It wouldn't be the 1st time and I'm sure I will get it wrong plenty more times in the future too. That is the nature of predicting tennis matches. I get it right sometimes too.

But yeah, sure, Ana can beat Sybille tomorrow. I just don't think she will. I might be wrong.

Re: IW QF : Ana Ivanovic vs Sybille Bammer

Ana is the best player left in the draw, Sybille is the worst one. Ana will win.

Only an accident could prevent Ana from defending her title.
