Talking Anne Keothavong: 'Onwards & Upwards to the Top 75'

This forum 'British Tennis' needs livening up a little bit, so I thought i'd start with a Cheering Thread for our number 1, Anne Keothavong

A place to discuss Anne's results, commitments and general Cheering Thread posts (Whatever they may be)

Good Luck Anne on the rise to the top 100, and good Luck in US Open qualifying

!VAMOS ANNE!

19/05/2008: Well Done Anne on reaching the Top 100 at Number 97

Go Anne!

I think at US Open quallies with a good draw she could qualify. I mean I think she lost to Dulko because she was rusty.

I won't mind of she plays these seeded players:

Aniko Kapros
Wynne Prakusya
Gisela Dulko
Natalie Vierin
Sofia Arvidsson

I don't want her to play these seeded players:

Renata Voracova
Vera Douchevina
Kristina Brandi

I'm pretty confident that Anne can beat every player in qualifying, but I just want to be sure that she qualifies!

As Anne has a busy September schedule, perhaps it's time to revive this thread.
Last week she lost in r2 of the Peachtree $25K so less said about that, the better. She is commited to the main draw of three more tournaments in the US:

15/9 - 21/9 Columbus $50K*
22/9 - 28/9 Albuquerque $75K
29/9 - 5/10 Troy $50K

*She celebrates her 20th birthday on Tuesday, 16th.

Good luck to her in all these tournaments and a happy birthday on Tuesday!

Main Draw for Albequerque is now on www.acemantennis.com

Anne plays Andrea Vanc (ROM) in r.1.

She'd better start earning some points here as there's shitloads to come off in Sept/Oct.
Go for it Anne!

Best to forget Troy. Come home and enter the domestic tournies.

Bronx $50K - r1. lost to Dulko 6-4 2-6 2-6
USO - q/r1. bt Mouhtassine 4-6 7-5 6-2
USO - q/r2. bt Washington 6-3 3-6 6-4
USO - q/r3. lost to Drake 5-7 1-6
Peachtree $25K - r1. bt Rampre 7-5 6-2
Peachtree $25K - r2. lost to Liu* 2-6 6-1 2-6
Columbus $50K - r1. lost to Snyder 2-6 4-6
Albuquerque $75K - r1. lost to Vanc 6-2 2-6 4-6
Troy $50K - r1. lost to Tezuka* 6-2 4-6 4-6

*Liu ranked 257, Tezuka 363.

The loss to Snyder was forgivable (she then made the final) and the win over Washington was great but most of the losses, especially to Liu and Tezuka were very disapointing

She's obviously not had a good US tour. As I said, she should have come home after Albuquerque.
Bit of a downer for a cheering thread!
