Is this the worst Ivanovic you've seen in last 3-4 years?

She reminds me of Petkovic this weekend. She plays nothing. Her game is such a mess. Nothing is working for her really.

It will take loads of work to bring it back to her 2008 level. (first half)

Yes it is. And she can play worse still.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Playing like that in front of her team, for her country must have been really tough

She's young, and she has top 7 talent.
But she needs something to stabilize her game.
I'm not sure what that is. Maybe play some Mickey Mouse events and get confidence

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

HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Something said the same thing about VAIDISOVA 1 year ago

Pretty much. Sad thing is she can still probably get worse.

Needs to see a sports physiologist and hire a full time coach.

I agree, goldenlox, she needs to start playing some 'Tier 4' equivalents to help her find her form. She needs to just focus on one thing at a time and stay positive. She may be playing horrible tennis, but she is still in the top 30 and is still young. Come on, Ana,... find that killer form again!

She is definitely a wreck. First and foremost .. apart from that toss .. atrocious footwork .. worth a club level player at best. Forehand is still cooking, but that's about it.

What. How dare you. At least Petkovic has won a WTA tournament in 2009.

- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a reigning world #1.
- Caroline Wozniacki has never beaten a top 5 player at a major.
- Caroline Wozniacki has not beaten a top 3 player en route to any of her 23 titles.
- Caroline Wozniacki has beaten two top 5 players en route to her 23 titles (#4 Zvonareva and #5 Schiavone)

-Her fans think she had very bad luck with her Grand Slam and Regular Tour draws.

Tennis basics: Throw the ball up in the air, straight.

Ana can't even get that right, the only thing that's keeping her in some matches and maybe winning them is her forehand.
