Sad, because she had chances, but not surprising at all IMO. Dementieva is a bad-matchup for Ana, and always will be. Good chance to pick up even more points in IW & Miami now.

GM Such a stupid OTT reaction, and I like Elena, Ana Good fight, hopefully she'll have a better run of luck in the US double compared to the Middle East double

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

How could she lose to Dementieva?

Re: Ana set to rock in the Gulf! :rocker2:

Both results are news to me, so pardon the late reaction for her even playing, and one more for the bagel against Vaidisova
Ana doesnt lose in 3 sets very often, especially when winning 1st set. Elena's that kinda player. Bet it was a good fight. Glad Ana's ankle is good to go.

Re: Ana set to rock in the Gulf! :rocker2:

What a day yesterday.
I had to work till 6 and after that I had an important chess match.
Between that I had time to record Ana's match.

I came home at 1 AM. I lost my match and haven't played a good game for some time.
I lost and our team lost. Gladly I still have Ana to make the day.
Around 3:40 AM I finished watching her match which ended in a loss.

Lately I'm pretty calm watching Ana's matches, but not in this one.
I'm so dissapointed with the loss. And just angry that she lost.
I can't stand it at all!
Ana looked great at the start and both had a high level. After that you saw more and more errors.

I'm glad with Ana's shape. She moved really well in the match and played aggressive as she can. The bad side is that she made way too many errors. The serve wasn't there as well. First serve % wasn't bad, but she hit nothing with her serve. Only a few serve winners and no aces. With a better serve she really could win the match.
Forehand and backhand looked solid. Some great winners and it feels so goes to the right level.
Really frustrating that Dementieva had so much back. You really saw Ana was annoyed by that.
Lena looked like a machine at some times, but Ana had the match.
I guess it's the first time that Ana wasted a break lead in a 3rd set.
If she made it 4-2 then the match was really hers.

I'm still mad all day and dissapointed.
I'm not dissapointed in Ana, just in the result. She gave everything but it wasn't enough. I just hate this loss.

As last I want to say: Ana is just BRILLIANT at the net. Some volleys were just totally awesome. I hope she can use it more often. She's getting better and better.

I can't wait for Indian Wells.
Berlin is getting near as well!


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova
