It's not much, but it's something. Something to try to build off of. That's the goal.

It's Quite Sad That A Player Of Anna's Quality Is Down Playing 25k Tournaments... But She Needs To Win Some Matches. I Think A Title Here Would Give Her Some Kind Of Encouragement.

It will be a tough match...Sunitha is no slouch, she is just inconsistent...and so is Anna...

Sunitha's biggest win ever was over Vera Zvonareva...

VENUS. ANA, TAY TAY. NICOLE. LAURA. KONJUH. MADISON

SERENA. MUGU. VIKA. PETKO. CARO. TIMEA. SVETA. HEATHER. KAIA. TAMIRA. FLAVIA. GEORGI. COCO. LUCIE, SLOANE. PENG. SORANA. ALICIA. JAEDA. CICI. ANETT. DANKA. DONNA. FRANCOISE.

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN. SHENAY. DINARA. GISELA. SPREM.

This has got to be the easiest tournament to win.

Go Anna! Don't let us down!

part of Anna's problem is that every opponent facing her BELIEVES that she can beat Anna. that's a tough position to be in bec her opponents seriously go all out to beat her, not wanting to be known as the player who lost to Anna.

i don't see why it would be any different with Sunitha.

but Anna had better win this match/tourny. she has no choice really.

Anna 7-5 6-3...

Rao is by far the best player that Anna will play here, but Sunitha isn't the quickest player, and Anna still has far more weapons... but I think Anna will make this harder than she should.

The other part of the problem is that they're right.

Wouldn't if be great if this girl had the career win of her life here?


That really would be unbelievable. Besides, Anna probably earns more money in a week than this girl will in her career *shrug*
