Re: What do you remember Anna K. for the most?

I still can't believe that player of her calibre who was able to play some fantastic tennis couldn't win any WTA title.
Was there ever any player who was in top 10 but never won any title???
It's kinda sad really.

Re: What do you remember Anna K. for the most?

Anna fulfilled her holy mission, which was to call attention to Russian tennis so that the world would be watching for the appearance of the divine and perfect one, the greatest tennis player in the history of the game, the template of feminine perfection, the acme of grace, the regally nosed and exquisitely dimpled goddess Elena Dementieva.

Re: What do you remember Anna K. for the most?

Her beauty and her underachieving

The belief that man is an irresolute creature pulled this way and that by two forces of equal strength, alternately winning and losing the battle for his soul; the conviction that human life is nothing more than an uncertain struggle between heaven and hell; the faith in two opposed entities, Satan and Christ - all this was bound to engender those internal discords in which the mind, excited by the incessant fighting, stimulated as it were by the constant promises and threats, ends up by giving in and prostitutes itself to whichever of the two combatants has been more obstinate in its pursuit. Life isn't black and white, it's gold.

First good tennis player who could have been a model. You forgot to include her ego as a poll option

Re: What do you remember Anna K. for the most?

I remember Anna for the good, the bad and the ugly:

The Good: her third round match against Anke Huber on People's Saturday, Wimbledon 1997, which I saw on Centre Court, the most amazing atmosphere ever, Mexican Waves, wolf whistles, and it was a really exciting match! Anna became a star that day, no question....

The Bad: That match against Miho Saeki in the Australian Open when she sprayed 32 double faults and was taken to 10-8 but still won, despite being in tears. One of the worst performances ever by a player who still won the match.

The Ugly: (Not her fault) but one time I was at Eastbourne and she was walking in my direction - I nearly got mown down by the crowd of autograph hunters surrounding her!

Another memory of Anna was a testimony to her hard work. Another time I went to Eastbourne and it was so rained off that all I saw all day besides reruns of Virginia Wade's 1977 victory shown on TVs inside the theatre was part of the first set between Monica Seles and Brenda Schultz (5-2 to Brenda when the final rains came). Despite the torrential rain, as we left the court, who should we see, doing sprints of the court, with her blond locks coming out of her cagoule hood, but Anna, with her team. Everyone else had cleared off but Anna kept working.

Thumbs up Re: What do you remember Anna K. for the most?

I'll always remember Anna as a very competent doubles partner with Martina Hingis, yes they used to say Martina could pair with anyone and win a doubles title and she did acomplish that feat several times, but with Anna the pairing brought much glamor and hype to the two players who were nicknamed the "Spice Girls" and they lived up to that reputation!
