ANNA seems to be very confident and determined and also has the will to win the close matches.
After Monica was just able to squeek out a win against an aggressive Alexandra, this match seems to have the makings of a good and even a classic battle, with Monica, unfortunately coming out ahead of the Russian Rocket.

Tennis is a game ... Have fun with it!
I agree!! Anna may aswell not even play!!!!!! Joking!!! I thought Jelena would be playing instead of Anna!!!!! Im Upset!! ... But id rather Monica get to the Final as i dont want Anna to win!! I want anna to retire without a tournament win!!
I have read before that this surface plays like grass so when Anna plays well and Monica is not on her best then I think Anna has a change but after I say this you will see that Monica wins 6:1 6:1, that always happens when I predict something good for Anna!
In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night
As much as I want anna to get this title, (although being a Monica fan myself ) I don't think she can get pass Monica, Monica is exactly the kind of player Anna have trouble beating: players who hit harder than her and more consistent than her and have a better serve than her. I hope this will be a close match to give anna much needed confidence, but I expect Monica setting up a classic clash against Martina again with a straight set win maybe something like 6-2 7-5 or something (Anna always start slowly which is starting to hurt her)
Congrats to Anna for getting this far! Its nice to see her improving her singles game.....also Martina for her win as well...Yes, Anna will REALLY have her hands full against Monica however the challenge is out there...so Good Luck Anna!! Prove all us doubters wrong (another challenge)!!
Originally posted by yoshie707 I dont not like anna .......... i just like drama!! But lets face it ... Anna cannot produce Quality tennis at a consistant period of time ... like a week or two!!
Oh so making 18QF's 18 semis, 3 finals.. means you can not produce any consistent results?? sure she has not won an event..
But she is very consistent.. If you enore the results when making her comeback from injury.. where she had 5 first Rd defeats..
Plus I wouldn't say Jelena is the most consist player on the circuit either?? sure she won 3 tournaments last year, but how many first Rd defeats did she have??? 6
I think Anna is in with a chance here. She's much fresher and more determined than Monica. She's in good form, likes this surface. Not that I'm necessarily picking her to win, but it should be close...
I think Anna definitely has a chance. There's absolutely no pressure on her - she's already made the semis and defended her points, which no-one thought she'd do - and Monica's in good form, so a Monica win is expected. But Anna's been in pretty devastating form, and has been quietly impressive this year... GO ANNA!
