I guess Ana's win over Ash Barty wasn't worthy to be mentioned by chingching
I know, I know, Ash abandoned at 6-3 2-5, but she didn't play better than Ana in that match.
And remember Adrijana Lekaj? Well, Adrijana defeated Anett at Trofeo Bonfiglio 5-7 6-3 6-0. Also, Adrijana lost this year 0-6 4-6 and 2-6 2-6 to Konjuh. In ya' face, chingching
Squashes over Gonzalez or Csoregi on clay are also worth mentioning.
I still think Anett is going to win easily, because she's experienced and plays very well on grass, while Ana's at her first tournament on grass. But anything can happen. Ana is able to beat her. And I want that to happen
I'd say Anett is the main favourite for the whole thing now, but, again, anything can happen.
I basically agree with your second paragraph, but Ana still hasn;t beaten any big players. I she has beaten players who have beaten Anett, but no wins over Putintseva, Vickery, Bouchard, Barty (
), Sharipova etc. Sure, Ana beat Adrijana quite comfortably but everyone has bad days. This was straighta after Ana barely beating Zimmerman and her early losses on the Pro Circuit, along with her Bagel stage
Also, squashes over Gonzalez and Csoregi on clay aren't that impressive because look at their rankings and who they have beaten. And squashes over Allie Kiick and Putintseva on clay are also impressive
I am not saying Ana is a bad player, because that is completely untrue and I like her. But IMO, she is overhyped and overranked
Anett is first up on court 8 tomorrow against Ana
Then she has 2 doubles matches, presuming she finishes the first: The first as 3rd match on and the second as last match on
I think with Indy gone in the singles and Anett or Ana will win in straight sets (I don't see this being a long affair) that Anett/Indy could win both doubles matches
Also, Anett is back in the Top 10
as long as the Finalist and Winner aren't made up by both Konjuh, Sharipova, Lottner or Abanda
I am not joking that looking at Anett's draw she has a genuine shot at winning the tournament
BTW, it says on the Estonian Womens rankings that Anett plays at EKSM as her tennis club. What club is that as I know that USTA is Tere and AOTK is Aivo's???
