roland garros 2006

it's just a few days away. ana reached qfs last year. that means she has 174 points to defend. she must more than just live up to her seeding, she must go 2 rounds beyond that just to defend her points. i'm curious whether she will be able to play as good as before her injury.

go ana!

Best of Luck to Ana. Hopefully the injury hasent effected her too much.

The woods are hopeless. Don't waste your time, they will be destroyed. So will the marsh. It is a losing game mankind has played for more than a century. Sadness is what you are, do not deny it. The universe is a lonely place, a painful place. This is what we can share between us, period.

Tough ask to defend her points especially considering her injury. However if she gets a good draw then I’m confident she can have a good tournament. Let’s hope she and Kirilenko have a successful doubles tournament too. Good luck Ana!

Oh really? So is she not participating in the doubles at all, or just not teaming up with Maria?

I hope she will have decent draw, and it means she wouldn`t play in the third round against Martina, Sveta or Dinara...

Ana Ivanovic

Jelena Jankovic

Vojislava Lukic

Good luck to: Davenport, Srebotnik, Kirilenko, Kostanic, Mirza and Serbian DC squad (Djokovic, Tipsarevic, Zimonjic, Bozoljac, Pashanski and Troicki)

If she isn't playing doubles then she will have more energy and time to concentrate on singles so that is a good sign... The draw will mean everything obviously so I won't say what I think her chances are till I see the draw but I am really worried about the QF coz of the injury but as long as Ana is happy with her performance I will be too!

What about mixed with Nole... Will that be happening?

My number 1 tennis Queen - Martina!!!
GOOD LUCK DANIELA!!!
KICK BUTT ANA!!!
KEEP SCREAMING MASHA!!!

the seedings were announced and ana will be the 20th seed. i suppose the seeds will be placed as usual, which means that ana would meet the first top 16 seed in the 4th round and it will be the seed number 14 ana-lena grönefeld. if she wins in the 4th round she would get to play number 1 seed amelie mauresmo in the qfs.

well, at least regarding higher ranked players things are not looking that bad, i think. we will see what the draw will look like in the end, of course. and i don't know what happens if any of the players withdraws over next couple of days.

She will meet a 9-16 seed in 3rd round, and then if she wins a 1-8 seed in the 4th.
It's tough but all depends on the draw, and of course, how fit and healthy Ana is.

Good luck Ana!!! I still believe that she can improve her year end ranking over last year. Hopefully she will play some of the US hard court tournaments before the US Open. I hope she goes to New Haven and I can see her there especially!!! I feel like I have been waiting all year for Ana to surprise us with a string of upset wins and a really big result. I see no reason that couldn't happen here.

I am a little shocked that Ana has yet to make a semifinal of any tournament yet this year! Hopefully she will make that happen at RG!

well, the draw is out now and ana will play against stosur in the first round (time for revenge) and in the 3rd round against myskina. then possibly henin-hadrenne in the 4th round. that's gonna be tough.
