JJ se raspada, ali se uvek nekako pokupi kad igra FK. Ana se, s druge strane, raspadne baš tad. Mislim da se na osnovu trenutne forme ne može ništa zaključiti. Pobednika će odlučiti živci i psihička priprema. Mislim da bi obema taj trofej dosta značio u ovom trenutku. Svako finale je veliko i značajno, uostalom. U poslednje dve godine Ana nas je razmazila tim trofejima na kraju sezone. Mogla bi da nastavi sa tom tradicijom i da završi sezonu sa trofejom ponovo. Čehinje su favoritkinje na papiru svakako, ali Ana i JJ ne smeju uopšte razmišljati o tome.

Re: ~Ana's articles~

Kad bi Ana nekako uzela ovaj Linz ( da Azarenka odustane, to njoj nije strano , mada joj je ovo priprema za Istanbul) pa da nekako "namesti"glavu, bilo bi sjajno .

Cehinje jesu favoriti (papirnati )ali ja verujem u cuda .

Re: ~Ana's articles~

Nema razloga da se ne veruje u čuda. Ako je Aleksandra uspela da odigra onako dobro u dublu protiv daleko afirmisanijih dubl igračica, onda mogu i Ana i JJ da se izbore sa Kvitovom i Šafarovom. Mnogo je bitno da veruju u to. Jelena je bila vrlo blizu pobede nad Petrom u Lincu prošle godine. Ana isto ume da igra protiv nje, samo treba da se priseti. Da je imala samopouzdanja, mogla je odvesti njihov poslednji meč u treći set, a u trećem setu je sve moguće. Nasuprot popularnom mišljenju, ja verujem da Anin stil igre ne leži Petri. Naravno, pod uslovom da Ana igra svoju igru, a ne onako pasivno kao u prvom setu na AO-u.

Edit: Opet, onda, kad Ana igra svoju igru, njen stil skoro nikome ne leži, možda Klajstersovoj.

I'm here for you. You can't be worse than those kids I've been dealing with for the last 7 days, while working as a substitute Serbian teacher.

Ivanovic Reaches QFs, World No.1 Wins Too
OCTOBER 11, 2012

LINZ, Austria - Ana Ivanovic kept her winning streak at the Generali Ladies Linz alive on Thursday evening, although it came at the expense of someone special - her good friend and fellow former Top 10 player Andrea Petkovic.

Watch live coverage from Linz all week long on WTA Live!

It wasn't easy by any means - both sets looked pretty even midway through, locked at 3-all - but the No.2-seeded Ivanovic pulled away each time, closing fast in both sets for a 64 63 win over Petkovic, a wildcard into this week's draw.

"It's always tough to play a friend," Ivanovic said of Petkovic. "She's a really great girl and I'm happy to see her back on the tour. I know she'll get back to the top - she's such a hard worker and really deserves to be up there."

Ivanovic is on an 11-match winning streak at the Generali Ladies Linz, going 4-0 to capture the title in 2008, 5-0 to take the title again in 2010, and 2-0 so far this year. The Serb is 16-2 overall at the International-level tournament.

"It always feels good to come back to the place you've had success before," Ivanovic said. "It's a mix of things. I really enjoy this surface and the atmosphere is relaxed - and at this time of the year the tennis season is coming to an end, so you have more fun on the court, and maybe you don't practice as much!"

And has Ivanovic enjoyed any of the city this week? "Yes - my family is here, which is nice. We've had a couple of dinners in the city, and since I played late the last few days we've also walked around during the daytime, stopping for coffee or lunch. We all really like it here - the city is very charming."

As for Petkovic, who started the year in the Top 10 but is now down at No.192 after missing most of the season with back and ankle injuries, the comeback trail continues - and that trail continues right away, and far away too.

"I'm playing in Luxembourg next week, and then I will go to the new tournament in New Delhi, which I'm really excited about because I've never been to India before," Petkovic said. "I'm looking forward to collecting some more matches this year and seeing if I can keep improving my game and my results.

"It's been a rough comeback, but I'm just happy I'm back on the court and enjoying almost every minute - I'm losing more than I should, but that's normal, and I'm just trying to find my match rhythm again. Every match is still special."

No.1 seed Victoria Azarenka had no trouble whatsoever, dropping just two games - even holding game point in one of them - to defeat Simona Halep, 61 61. It was her WTA-leading 64th match win of a breakthrough season.

"I felt I played much better than yesterday, and it's important for me to progress from one day to another," Azarenka said. "I'm not really thinking about statistics or how many matches I'm winning right now, I'm just trying to keep going."

Other winners as the second round ended were Petra Martic, qualifiers Kirsten Flipkens and Bethanie Mattek-Sands and lucky loser Irina-Camelia Begu.

"This season I was able to win a lot of good matches, including a strong tennis players. However, my confidence a little bit sometimes lacking - especially in key matches. This is the direction I plan to work hard in the next season.

Now my physical level slightly decreased. I would like to play more tournaments, so I plan to do next year. The current women's tennis all rely on the "physics", so it is - a very important part. In the off-season, half of which I will spend in Belgrade, half - in Dubai with a trainer, sparring partner and specialist in physical training, physical training I'll be a lot of attention "- quoted Ivanovic RIA "Novosti".

Ana Ivanovic: Our winners have made tennis more popular
October 15, 2012, 14:31 | Author: Jacob Eccentrics, GoTennis.ru | Main photo: Robert Maksimov, GoTennis.ru

By tradition, the first four seeded tennis tournament, "Bank of Moscow Kremlin Cup" was given a special press conference. Ana Ivanovic was, as always, nice and made ​​no secret of a good mood. Serbian athlete shared his impressions of Moscow and talked about plans for the offseason.

- Ana, of the three top-ranked - Wozniacki, Jankovic and Azarenka - say that they play correctly. Can you compare their strengths?
- If you were on the top tennis player in the world, then he deserves it. But the difference of Wozniacki and Azarenka Jankovic is that if Caroline and Elena did not make mistakes, and this win, Victoria works powerfully. Although it is inherent stability.

- Sometimes you show your old tennis, and sometimes - not. What is the cause of this instability?
- This year, I won a lot of fights. I had a hard tournament grid. I do not have enough confidence in the games against the top players, but I will try in the future to overcome this season.

- Your team for the first time reached the final of the Fed Cup. What this means for you?
- Indeed, for us it's a dream realized. We managed to win a tough match against Russians. If we can overcome and the Czech team, it will be similar to the victory of our guys in Davis Cup.

- Tell me that success in the semifinals to influence your decision to play at the "Kremlin Cup"?
- I was always a pleasure to return to Moscow. Our countries are similar.

- Ana, can you compare the Ice Palace and the Palace "Olympic" - courts, the atmosphere?
- It's difficult to do. "Olympic" is much greater. And the courts - different. If you remember when it was dirt packed in ice.

- It seems that your game is highly dependent on the physical form. Is that so?
- Yes, now women's tennis as a whole relies on powerful strikes. I would like more in the coming season to play in tournaments, but it really depends on my fitness. - How to spend the off-season? - One half - at home, and another - in Dubai. Me go coach and sparring partner.

- Played a role in the popularity of tennis in Serbia your victory?
- We are still in first place soccer. But our victory, of course, have made ​​tennis popular. Especially last year's performance Djokovic. Now they all want to play tennis, go to the court was stylish.

- How do you feel about fashion, whether your favorite brands?
- I like shopping. But, unfortunately, I can not personally go shopping, to acquire stylish clothes and shoes on the Internet.

- Did mark in April in Moscow victory in the semifinals of the Fed Cup? If so, whether you go to the same place in the event of his success to the "Kremlin Cup"?
- I still can not move away from the celebration (laughs). We celebrated the victory in the Serbian restaurant. It was fun, the music was playing, served our national dish. We did not sleep all night, as were leaving early in the morning for the tournament in Stuttgart.
