First cheering thread ever for Anca ?

This week, she has reached a new career-high of no. 60 ! Congrats ! Next step is Top 50.

hoffentlich hat sie ihre grenzen dieses jahr noch nicht erreicht und kämpft sich weiter (wie in den letzten jahren) von saison zu saison langsam aber sicher nach vorne! in diesem jahr hat sich mich jedenfalls sehr beeindruckt und ist (trotz MARTINAS sieg in budapest) die erfolgreichste dtb-spielerin '02 für mich!

Ganz deiner Meinung Pan! Sie ist dieses Jahr die beste Deutsche Spielerin.

Go Anca

Anca plays Anastassia Rodionova in the first round.

Go Anca, you can make it.

And BTW, Anca is the 4th seed , so she definitely deserves a cheering thread.

was ever before seeded #4 in a WTA-Tour Maindraw?

i don´t think so

Go ANCA

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Anca also plays doubles, with Stephanie Cohen Aloro.

They will meet Molik/ Serra Zanetti, so Anca has to play twice tomorrow.

Good luck Anca !

Can we agree that this first cheering thread is also the last ? Maybe it was a bad omen.

Rodionova def. Barna 4-6 6-3 6-2.
Molik/Serra Zanetti def. Barna/Cohen Aloro 6-3 1-0 retired.

Here's a quote from a yahoo-article (sid):

"Ich habe einfach schlecht gespielt und mich auf dem Platz nie richtig wohlgefühlt", sagte die gebürtige Rumänin: "Dieses letzte Turnier war einfach eines zuviel. Trotz allem bin ich aber mit dem Jahr 2002 zufrieden."

She already seemed to be tired in Linz, so she is probably right. I also suppose Anca was the one who retired.

Now enjoy your holiday and see you in January, Anca !

(But she will probably play National Champs in December)

Yes, the tremendous pressure of her first cheering thread must have psyched her out. We have to curtail our enthusiasm in the future.

It's been a long season, she's played an enormous number of matches. As many as the average Top 10 player because of her frequent participation in qualifying. And she's done splendidly to capture and maintain the coveted spot as German No. 1 - although it's not the most hotly contested race at the moment.

But I do have my doubts for next season. She will get main draw entrance much more frequently - which will lose her an important source of her ranking points. 25 of her 39 match wins (excluding Bronx) this season came in qualifying.

Except for Estoril and Gold Coast, she hasn't gone particularly deep in the main draws. Essentially, she needs to play even better next season to maintain her current ranking. And she needs to improve quite a bit to reach the Top 50 - and stay there. Let's hope she can continue her progress.

And I'd like to see her defend that National Championship title in December!

I agree. Anca is very good in playing qualifying, now she has to learn to win more maindraw matches. However, considering that her last year's end-ranking was 110, she has done very well this season.

The good things is that she has gained points during the whole season, so she's not in danger to suddenly drop a lot of places.
She will lose quite a lot of points right in January (QF Gold Coast), but then it's basically nothing until April. Maybe she will have a shot at the top 50 then.
