Anna begins 2006 in Hobart!
Anna begins in Hobart, changing her usual scheduale from the last few years a bit.
She'll begin her search for the dozenth title against Laura Granville from the US.
It could be tough - Laura is a steady baseliner who hits pretty hard - but then again she isn't very succeful against other spin and slicers - so Anna should exploit that as much as possible.
also - Smashnova will be playing doubles with Uzbbek Akgul Ammanmuradova (does anybody remember when she last did that on a wtatour event?) and together they form an "odd couple" - Akgul is one of the tallest players on tour, we all know that anna is one of the smallest and together they have a nice package of power and speed, experience and youth.
Ironicly they will face one of the few even smaller girls on tour - Nuria Llagostera-vives and her compatriot Laura pous-tio.
they are the second seeds, but Anna is of course much better than her doubles ranking implies, as she barely plays.
I'll be very glad if Anna would give doubles a full chance for the year. i think it would only be of her benifit.
good luck darling!
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.
