Re: Hong Kong- JB Group Classic 2008

So what's her plans after this tournament? Sydney or straight to Melbourne?

Re: Hong Kong- JB Group Classic 2008

Yeah, she will play Sydney as usually.

As much as I don't pay attention to exos, the one in Hong Kong is clearly the most prominent of them all. Good that Ana has a tough draw (even though she's seeded #1). I hope she play Venus again and if she can play well with no pressure on it might help her in their meetings in the future in the real tournaments.

Ana Ivanović.

Re: Hong Kong- JB Group Classic 2008

If we look all players against who Ana played so far more than once in her career - she never beat only three players: Henin (0-3), Venus Williams (0-4) and Dementieva (0-2). In first round she will play against Elena and in 2nd probably against Venus. EXO matches is not counted in official stats but for her confidence before AO will be very good if she beat they both in Hong Kong.

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)

I never count juniors, chalengers or FED CUP matches... especially when it's bad for Ana .

Re: Hong Kong- JB Group Classic 2008

Has she said anything about plans of playing doubles in 2008? Obviously shes playing double in this exo, but in the real tourneys?

The other thing is that I’m going to be playing less doubles. I had planned to play some tournaments with Maria Kirilenko but now I decided that I need to focus more on singles. Doubles is great fun, but it can cause problems for singles, especially when there is a rain delay, or you need extra recovery time.

The worst thing would be if I had to withdraw from the doubles competition during a Grand Slam, because I was tired and needed to rest for singles – I would feel very bad, letting down a partner like that. Actually I would play anyway out of obligation, and that would not be a good situation.

So I decided it was best not to commit to anything. Maria and I are good friends and she also thinks it’s a good decision.
That was from her diary entry in june... http://www.anaivanovic.com/index.php...detailpage=166

but "less" doesn´t mean "no more"...

Andrea Petkovic, Maria Kirilenko, Ana Ivanovic,
Tatiana Golovin & Elena Vesnina.

Re: Hong Kong- JB Group Classic 2008

I don't think Venus does something special to beat Ana. I guess it's a little bit mental because Ana just does not play the way she plays usually vs. Vanus

She doesn't like the power Venus generates, not used to the balls coming back so fast and it cramps her.
