Re: FedCup.

Hopefully the injury doesn't play a part.. and Ana is ready to play and to fight!

Ajde!

Re: FedCup.

Eventual Fed Cup title will be for Ana and Jelena potential new Careers corner stone! (For Jovanovski/Krunic also)
Look what is happen in near past with Kuznetsova, Dementieva, Safina, Zvonareva, Schiavone, Errani/Vinci, Hradecka/Hlavackova after theirs countries won this trophy. Not the mention ATP Davis Cup cases.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

Re: FedCup.

Ana's last win over Lucie



I've officially come down with Fed Cup fever. Might as well be Serbian, lol. Ana just needs to win tomorrow, if Serbia are to have any chance. This is going to be a mess tbh, Lucie's form is iffy + Ana's nursing that injury from Moscow (plus lord knows what form she's in). I do think that the pressure is on the Czech Republic though, given that they're the hosts, the defending champions and that most people expect them to win. Serbia have nothing to lose. Corny, but true.

Re: FedCup.

4th straight loss to Lucie.

Pathetic performance in which a crappy BH was her best shot.

Re: FedCup.

Chances for the trophy were minimal from the start. When Ana lost, they became theoretical.

Re: FedCup.

Most of Serbian chances and hopes in this final is based on Kvitova Illness, but Petra obviously solved that problem, so todays painful lose against Safarova looks now less bad than right after match.

FED Cup final is still best moment for Serbian womens tennis this season. Ana is titleless and not back's into WTA TOP10, JJ have disaster season for former #1, Jovanovski and Krunic for sure have much better expectations of 2012.

Interesting is that Serbia have solid chances to repeat same success next season - 1st Round vs Slovakia in Belgrade, against (Sharapovaless) Russia SF again in Belgrade and final vs CZE again in Belgrade (or there will be draw with Italy).

HC is perfect opportunity to successfully start season with title and gain confidence. Ana+Novak is favorites for title, and be very close to Nole may have positive influence on Ana.

I hope you're right, but I didn't notice that he has a positive influence or any influence on her. Maybe it can change.

Re: FedCup.

Maybe someone tells me I'm retarded, but I have a strong feeling they will turn the tables tomorrow and win it 3-2. I feel like it will be much different tomorrow, but that's just my sense, it looks so far away now. It does look unbelievable to come back.

Even if they tied 2-2 in singles, chances for our doubles to beat super-power Czech team with currently #3 and #4 WTA ranked player in doubles Hlavackova and Hradecka (in last 5 months they together played finals of Wimbledon, Olympics, US Open and YEC!) is less than 1%. We have some unexpected doubles wins in past (based on rankings) against BEL, SVK and CAN, but only one of these 6 opponents players ever reach TOP30 in doubles. This tie is over yesterday.

Re: FedCup.

I've never seen Ana act worse on court, tbh. It was the first time I did not watch one of her matches until the end, I had to turn it off because she was really getting on my nerves.

Ana was a complete nervous wreck. Seriously off balance mentally.

To think once upon a time Ana was a big match player.. Now she can't handle any resemblance of pressure.

Re: FedCup.

What did just happen? Ana won an important match against a top 10 player on her turf? In Fed Cup?
The Mayas were right.
