Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

Doesn't matter much what she says off court, but what her racket says on court.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

I agree..

But often, the mentality a player has shows off on court. Ana can't expect things to fall from the sky.. she has to make them happen.

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

I can't believe this was considered one of her worse matches back then. I was horrified But in retrospect, I mean, just WOW That serve. That backhand. OMG.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Yes.. look at the power.. the depth of the shots.. and we thought Ana played like crap back then.. What should we call her game now? This is good to show how our standards have fallen below ground. It's also true that most WTA matches now have such low level in general that anything looks good in comparison.

Then we have the Madrid match to compare.. it's such a huge difference. That Ana from the Dementieva match would have crushed this JJ 6-1 6-1. And again... at that time we thought Ana played awful awful tennis. It's so sad to see how Ana's game colapsed and is not even a shadow of its former self.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

Yes... she was a lot faster and more agile..

One of the worst matches of 2007-08 is probably 1000 levels above one of the best of 2009-10 as far as Ana's level of tennis is concerned. So sad to see..

Re: Ana Ivanovic Videos thread

Ana will get back up there im confident of that,im confident in her and rooting for her to get back because her situation where she was number one and fell so far for her talent was a huge shame so seeing her getting it back match by match is nice to see.

np as a maria fan and seeing her struggle i can see how frustrating and depressing it might get especially since these two were in the AO final in 2008, both will get there they're fighters.

Ana looked really fit. And the pace she generates in that forehand was amazing, considering her old Yonex was very, very low powered.
