Re: Ana Konjuh

Thanks for the pics Zvonaraver Those weren't posted before.
Ana seems really tired in the first few pics. She has no facial expression at all while hitting the ball and I think this means a lack of focus. Probably she didn't sleep well the night before
Just look at her facial expressions in the rest of the pics.

"Pain is temporary.
Quitting lasts forever"
This is what Ana wrote below one of those pictures on her facebook profile.
She was injured during Wimbledon. You can see bandage on her right arm.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Today Ana appeared on cover of Croatia's most popular and known sports daily newspapers "Sportske Novosti" with one whole page article about her titled:
"Ana Konjuh - I like to be the boss on the court"




It's explained that Ana's sister has some very rare autoimmune desease and she is the first case of it in Croatia, it affects 100 people from 1 milliard.

You need some balls to take a decision like that
That's a lost opportunity to gain some experience and for us to watch Ana on a big stage, but still perhaps it's better in the long run.

Cool article title Is there any news we didn't already knew about?

Re: Ana Konjuh

Good
I would have taken the opportunity to play Miami but she obviously wants to get her points the hard way Also she probably wouldn't get any points, unless she got a QWC and she might win a match It's better she wins some 25s

Re: Ana Konjuh

From the stories I've heard about situations like this it wouldn't surprise me if that WC was offered in exchange for a whole lot of something. Not necessarily money, but more like a chance to sign a long-term contract with Ana *under their temrs*, which could in the short term help a youngster, but looking at a big picture do more harm than good. Doesn't have to be the case, but they're certainly not offering WC's from the goodness of their hearts. It's all a big business.

That match taught me a lot of different things I need to work on, especially against players like her," Townsend said. "People that are on the pro circuit, they hit the ball like her, and even bigger. It taught me a few things I need to tweak and work on so that I can hang with people, and allow myself to play my game against people who hit that hard.
-Taylor Townsend after losing to Ana in the Semis.

That's a high compliment from Taylor. Essentially saying that she plays like a pro tour player in terms of power.

Re: Ana Konjuh

Ana has some advice for TT:
Asked her opinion of the Townsend’s fitness, Konjuh said: “She was born like that, and she’s very talented and smart and plays great like that. But if she wants to be a pro, she has to lose some weight. In the second set I felt she couldn’t run as much. If she gets fit, she can be a really, really good player.”

A very nicely said comment
Also, Taylor's comment of her was nice as well
The thing about Ana's game that is so good, is that she hits the ball hard but she gets good height over the net and hits with spin, so there isn't much risk
