Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)
Ana loses 1st round in Pattaya...
Expected unprofessional behavior in a MM..
I'm not agree with this statement!
Till that big body issue in day-to-day matches still exist, why she should to try anything serious on such events and risk injuries for nothing? I guess Dubai will be exception because she is Dubai Duty Free
global brand ambassador, and she will play hers A-game since start (but will underperform anyway when it comes to play 3rd match in the row).
If Ana really reach in February FED CUP next round and Dubai QF like I predict, we should not to be unhappy with that, despite some ugly early loses at MM-Pattaya and P5-Doha.
For something bigger, we just need to wait next month March and Indian Wells. If she stay injury-free, and with day for recovery between matches, we will see in California what is real level of Ana's current game.
and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is
AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)
