I'm not surprised bearing in mind the way she plays.
The main thing is that she won though .
omg Kart i love that Avatar Gaby.
I remmember Hingis hitting only 7 winners against Serena in the Usopen final in 1999, i was impressed with that too.

That's not too surprising. When Anna played against Capriati in New Haven, she only hit about 6 or 7 winners over the course of 2 hours. When she played Serena she didn't even hit one. Her game is all about frustrating the other person. After watching her play a couple of matches this year, I'm convinced she is a better retriever and wall than Coetzer in her prime (just not at the Slams). Anna would have definitely been a top 5 player if she played like this 5 or 6 years ago.
