What *surface* will Anna win her first title on?

I really think it will be on "grass*. Either at Birmingham *or* Eastbourne. *Very* few players *know how* to play on grass. Anna is one of them so she has an *advantage*

That's a good point, but I think for those exact reasons she won't win her first title on grass. So much is expected of her on that surface due to her history at Wimbledon and Eastbourne, that the pressure will get to her. Mind you, it's the ONLY surface where she hasn't reached a final....make what you will of that

*I* think *Anna* will *win* her *1st* title on *clay*, because that's where *most* of the *lowly* Tier *V* tournies are. Not *dissing* her *but* Anna *should* try *playing* more *lower* tournies to *gain* some *confidence*.

She did play a few of those last year, like Bol, and crashed out in her first match. Anna won't win a lower tier tournament because the pressure is too much. She needs to play against the big boys (er, girls) in a tier 1 or 2.

LOL, what the hell am I saying? According to my posts, Anna won't ever win anywhere because the pressure is too much.

Anna's head is fucked up. When she can deal with the pressure for her to win...she will. Yeah, great words of wisdom, eh?

Bol was a III... I know she played Shanghai and Warsaw Tier IV's (stupid considering Lena was there ), but I think that's it.

She also played Luxembourg in 2000, but crashed out in the SF against Maleeva. It's not like this is a new thing for her...

And Anna didn't lose to Bovina at either of those tournaments, so I hardly think it's stupid for her to have entered. As I recall, Anna handed Elenas' lunch to her in Sydney in 2001....

Yes, Anna is 1-0 against Elena... but by law I have to constantly stick up for Lena.

As I stick up for Anna

Elena does get props for already having a title.
