Re: Ajmo Ana Savic!

While it's great to follow Ana's success and her maturing tennis, it's also sad (in a sense) when you think that her best tennis days will probably come at the same time as those of some other Croatian players, so she probably won't get as much media attention as she would've, achieving the same a few years earlier. For instance, in the summer of '08 we had only Kostanic (barely) in the top 100, so assuming that Ana can come into 150 or even close to 100 (enitrely possible), it's easy to figure she'd probably be Croatian #2 and a certain Fed cup candidate at that time. This would help her both financially, as well as in a promotional sense. But if she does a great job in the coming years, when we expect Martic, Vekic and Konjuh to all come inside top 30, her #100 might not even be enough for a spot in the national team. So yeah, she is becoming a really good player, but sometimes you need to have a bit of luck in timing as well.

Hope I got it all wrong
