Cool The Anna Smashnova Cheering Thread

ok, well, no one informed ME that the matches started on sunday. here i am, sitting there minding my own business, updating my exhibition ocmmittments in ETA, when elektra says "chanda " who's she playing? "anna!" ugh. sorry bout that.

(1) Jennifer Capriati - bye
Conchita Martinez - Myriam Casanova (WC)
Ai Sugiyama - Qualifier
Iva Majoli - Jelena Dokic (5)

Amelie Mauresmo (4) - bye
Patty Schnyder - Qualifier
Qualifier - Elena Dementieva
Qualifier - Daniela Hantuchova (7)

Anastasia Myskina (8) - Lisa Raymond (WC)
Marie-Gaianeh Mikaelian (WC) - Magdalena Maleeva
Chanda Rubin - Anna Smashnova
Justine Henin (3) - bye

Kim Clijsters (6) - Daja Bedanova
Amanda Coetzer def. Silvia Farina Elia 7-5 6-2
Tatiana Panova - Anne Kremer
Lindsay Davenport (2) - bye

even without prior knowledge, i still would have guessed anna could win this one. chanda fell easily (and pitifully) to a clay-loving schett last week and didn't even come CLOSE to showing the form that she had when she came back. and anna has an indoor win under her belt over schnyder the real question is, can she beat henin or not. henin is another clay lover who isnt too good indoors (the weakest of the top seeds, no need to mention that she lost to casanova last week). although she hasnt won yet, expect anna to get past chanda and have a fun match against henin. it's really up for grabs. if henin plays like she did when she beat serena, then she's got it. but if she plays like she did at indian wells, then anna's so gonna bring this home after that, we've got either Leipzig finalist Myskina, or Moscow champion Maleeva. that's an uh-oh. but anna might be an indoor specialist now go anna!

*update: anna def. chanda 6-3 6-3

Lindsay Davenport - Anna Smashnova - Lisa Raymond - Sandrine Testud - Paola Suarez - Amelie Mauresmo - Virginia Ruano-Pascual - Nadia Petrova - Chanda Rubin - Cara Black - Tathiana Garbin - Anne Kremer - Monica Seles - Fabiola Zuluaga - Maria Sanchez-Lorenzo - Amanda Coetzer - Rita Grande - Meghann Shaughnessy - Magui Serna - Nathalie Dechy - Kim Clijsters - Elena Tatarkova - Maria Sharapova - Alicia Molik - Julia Vakulenko - Elena Likhovtseva - Anastasia Myskina - Emilie Loit

Congrats Anna!!!!

Mikey, honestly, I did not know either the matches started today until I was in GM and saw a thread for her.

Oooo....not so rough on Babsi. She has beaten Chanda 2 1/2 times this year. Poor Chanda though.
