The Anna Smashnova Cheering Thread

omg you guys. i feel terrible. imagine me forgetting to do this! well, we had an off week, so i forgot - yeah, we'll go w/ that

[1]Capriati vs bye
Shaughnessy vs Qualifier
Rubin vs Schett
Bedanova vs Hantuchova [8]

[4]Henin vs bye
Qualifier vs Qualifier
Dementieva vs Coetzer
Sanchez-Vicario vs Hingis [7]

[5]Mauresmo vs Rittner
Maleeva vs Kremer
Panova vs Farina Elia
bye vs Dokic [3]

[6]Clijsters vs Myskina
Qualifier vs Majoli
Smashnova vs Schnyder
bye vs Davenport[2]

ok, well, unfortunately (and maybe this is my pessimism or just my fantacism about lindsay) i doubt anna's going places this tournament. yeah, patty's another clay player who, unlike maggie, is not great on carpet, but then we see lindsay looming in the second round. renowned (until quite possibly last week, or for some of us, still) as one of the best indoors players right now, lindsay is not on par, but is close to getting there. i can definitely see anna getting by schnyder. but barely. not to be cruel, but anna's best surface is
clay. in order, that'd be clay, clay, clay, then hardcourt. forget grass and indoors - the prime opposittes of clay. expect anna to get to round 2, but if hardcourt fed cup was any indication, don't be surprised if she falls in round 2.

im so sorry anna - i hate when by two biggest favorites play again each other. i won't root for either of you i promise

good luck anna

spank@ Mikey j/k

I looked for this before I went to work and thought you were out of town. I still love you.

Well done for Anna to have beaten Patty Schnyder. Was worried about this one because Patty can win when she is really on.

Like you Mike, Lindsay is a big fav of mine too so this will be rough thinking of them playing each other.

It's okay Mikey. I only tease the people I like.

So impressed with Anna's victory. I think the last time she played Lindsay was during Fed Cup. Too bad they are both favs of ours and will have to be sad for one of them. The pic of them at the net after the match was priceless. Anna looked like a small child next to Lindsay.

Good luck Anna!!!!!!

well, in an unhappy but unsurprising day, anna lost. it was such a shame b/c i couldn't even root for her. i would NEVER root against her, but i couldn't go for anyone.

don't worry about it anna - shake it off. you did extremely well if you consider the surface (7 game off lindsay! more than fed cup on hard ). good luck in your next tournament
