Anna in Wimbledon

Since no one started the thread yet, I thought I'll start one finally

Anna got a hard first roud match- Elena Likhovtseva (13)
Shahar Peer will play a qualifier

And Noam Okun reached the main draw Hopes he'll get a good draw

And in mens doubles, Andi Ram & Yoni Erlich are seeded 15 and will meet a british couple

I think, therefore I purr.

and of course Shahar and Anna will play doubles too, Shahar will play with Vera Duchevina and Anna will play with Anne Kremer.

I think, therefore I purr.

Hello to Karen and ASAP.

I hope Anna does well. I have a feeling Shahar will do quite well.

another nice chance for a top20 win in a grand slam.
double points - very juicy
and with nothing to defend - she can get back to the top50 with some luck.
Likhovtseva and smashnova are two of my faves and i hate seeing them face each other all the time - but i'm in favour of our girl
as for shahar - nice draw, she's still getting lucky draws so she should take advantage of them now that she can.
as for the doubles - youv'e got yourself an old dou and a youngster couple.
vera+shahar are combined just a bit older than anne/a
but altough the four players are all very good players - two youngsters on a fast rise and the other both accomplished top30 players - they all suck in the doubles department.
noteworthy is the extreme eastern grip vera uses - If shahar can provide flat, hard shots, and vera brongs on that superv passing shot of hers (the angle usage coming exactly from that tricky grip) they can really go for it.
vera has a great reach, and IMO is the best of the sub30 ranked youngsters (safina in better, but she's such an oldie for me, it seems - she's having a remarkable year as well, mind you).
she also tends to have a topclass scheduale, the same kind shahar is couragously taking - they can team up and notch some big wins - and never underestamate a doubles win over players - knowing you have beaten a player before - be it singles OR doubles is a big factor, and doubles is a good place for youngsters such as shahar and vera to take thier chances and go for shots.
shahar has an amazing backhand, vera has amazing angles and a nice serve as well.
they could learn a few things together - and at least pocket some extra cash.
good luck to them, hope we get at least what we had in RG from our girls.

if you have nothing important to say, please do so in non-tennis forum. if you have something you think is important, but is actually rubbish regarding anything other than tennis - please do so in the non-tennis forum. if you have something tennis related to say, but it's actually "OMG, X player is so h0t!1" or "who has the biggest boobs on the wtatour" please do so in menstennisforum, under "wta forum". if you have something important, tennis-related and interesting to say please do so. No one in the world can understand how much tennis means to someone, except another fan.

This is confusing, I donno where to post about Shahar, here or at her thread

Shahar does get a lucky draws huh? I think its a champions luck
based on the doubles final at Raanana I wouldn't count on a breakthough doubles tourny, though you can't judge player based on one match.

I just hope the 3 matches she played at grass in Rosmalen helped her to adjust to grass and she will do well here, I think that she can based on the reports of her training but I don't have any expectations. just hope she will surprise me once again.

Vera has a amazing angles? finally! I was looking for a player who plays lots of angles, now I'm really looking forward to see her play Thats great for Shahar! angles are really important on doubles matches.

Noam Okun lost in 4 sets. The score in the 4th set tie break was 16-14

Can anyone update Shahar Peer's match/s here? I won't be able to see any matches 'till friday.

I think, therefore I purr.
