Anna Smashnova picks up 35 quality points today in Zurich!
She beat Chanda 6-3, 6-3! Not that surprising really since Chanda seems a bit out of it lately and Anna is very tough to beat with her heavy topspin. Her shots jump up high on Chanda and it's probably a case of Chanda thinking she can hit winners off of her shots and being too short of stature to handle that. Coming to the net would help, but Anna has good lobs too.
I am sure she will get revenge next time though. Well done Anna.
So Anna picked up 73 pts today in the RACE to LA.
She has now 1482 pts.
14) Anna Smashnova 1482
15) Lindsay Davenport 1425
16) Maggie Maleeva 1415
17) Elena Dementieva 1324
18) Nathalie Dechy 1269
19) Ai Sugiyama 1241
Ai or Nathalie CAN be dangerous for Elena. Especially is Ai gets 66 pts for beating Capriati in the second round I believe. GO AI!!!
