Re: Anna Lena in New York!

ALG has a good draw, the first 2 rounds should be possible, in the final round her opponent could be Sloane Stephens and that could be tricky. But I would be happy if she could win at least her first round.

Re: Anna Lena in New York!

That's a pretty good draw really. A lot better than it could have been.

Re: Anna Lena in New York!

Just saw ALG won the first 17 points of the 2nd set that's pretty good...but should have won the set 6-0.

Re: Anna Lena in New York!

quali-reports from GM

Groenefeld def Fujiwara. (7-5 4-0 to 7-5 6-3)
Anna basheddd that ball. Fuji put all her weight (75 pounds) behind the ball. Very similar awkward strokes like Kleybanova. Loads of power for such a tiny girl. Fuji is super intense. ALG is extremely rusty from matches. Had a mini choke from 5-0 If Tatishvilli copes well with power, and can push she'll win. ALG is so nervous, she'll mess up.

I think Tatishvilli will be more dangerous, she had some good results lately... and ALG being her usual messy self
would be intresting to know if she's in NY on her own, or with Rittner, her parents or if she's already found another coach?

Re: Anna Lena in New York!

your avatars are always so disturbing and funny

Meh, she looks ok...she looks a bit better than she did earlier in her comeback, but it could just be the angle

Re: Anna Lena in New York!

nothing new, belly being bigger than her boobs and I fear it's the weight she'll have until the end of her career ...
I wish she would find some of her form 2 years ago and she would qualify with ease... reaching the 4th round of a GS seems so surreal at the moment
