Ana's 2014 season will start in Hong Kong where she'll take part in a 25k as one of the seeded players, starting Dec. 30th. Afterwards she'll head off to Melbourne. Hope her year starts as well as this one ended
But she ended the 2012 WTA year-end at 232 and is now at only 220--and she will soon be 30 years old
That said, 2013 was a success in terms of a singles CH ranking (180) and $25K title and also a doubles CH ranking (150).
I know, but for some reason I have a feeling she is a solid worker and someone who is trying her best to make do with what talent she has. That's why I follow her results. And 2013 has been quite a nice year for her. Her w-l record was 36-24, she won a 25k, reached a final from qualies on another, a semi and a quarter at a 50k, appeared on 3 majors, made a top 100 win...altogether a very decent effort. In doubles there were three titles (2x25k, 1x50k), and a final on a 100k.
I hope she sticks around Downunder after Melbourne to take part in those 50k's - sounds like a good chance for in-form players to pick up valuable points.
