Re: Miami 2008

I hope Lindsay has recovered from Indian Wells because I'd like to see a good match between her and Ana.

Re: Miami 2008

Ana-Lindsay at last

Now if she loses to Pin or Qualifier then we know FOR SURE that this match will never happen

Shame it's so early

Re: Miami 2008

Ana has a pretty favorable draw. I hope that we`ll see a rematch against Dani in the quarterfinals. Hopefully Ana will do well in Miami.

You should be glad its early that way there is more chance for it to happen... If it does happen (which I think it will) I'll just be covering my eyes and ears so I don't have to witness all you people gawking over the match up of the two of them

Don't worry about Daniela, she won't get to the QF so really Ana should make SF provided she isn't too tired, which will be the biggest factor.

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

But it means one of my faves will lose early

And why you dislike Linds so much?

well lets just hope its Linds But yeah it is more fun when ur faves play towards the end

I don't really know why, I kinda think she is a nice person and I was happy for her with Jagger but I'm a Martina fan from waaaay back so I've picked up a lot of players I dislike from back in Martina's heyday And when Lindsay came back after having Jagger that pissed me off and then she robbed Daniela of a title which pissed me off even more
Don't worry, I wouldn't go around bashing her much

I forget the exact H2H, but know its in Lindsays favor. Hopefully the Ana & Martina combined record vs Lindsay will come out ahead when its all said and done.

Re: Miami 2008

I don't think Ana will be tired physically, especially as she raced through the final 3 matches. She has 4 free days to recover (she's gonna play on Friday, as they already announced Venus is playing on Saturday, so that means bottom half starts first). I'm more worried about being worn out mentally, that's what happened in Stuttgart and to some extent in Toronto too (she was more tired physically there though). It's tough to start all over from 0.

Ana Ivanović.

Re: Miami 2008

An Ivanovic-Serena final would be a dream come true. I hope Lindsay does not play the spoiler, she can be dangerous.

Re: Miami 2008

A little bit of trivia never hurts, right?

Quote:
FREQUENT FLIERS

Nadal arrived in Miami in the wee hours Monday on a private plane from Indian Wells, Calif. Among the passengers on the plane was Ana Ivanovic, the Serbian world No. 2, who won the Indian Wells final on Saturday. Nadal lost in the semis to Novak Djokovic and decided to fly private. He had an extra seat on the plane and offered to let Ivanovic hitch a ride.

Anyway, I wish Ana all the luck in Miami..I hope she stays focused and motivated.

Re: Miami 2008

Haha, Rafa is lusting for Ana again. Didn't he say something about her in the past? I'm pretty sure there was some story around RG last year if not in 2006.

It's nice from him though.

Ana Ivanović.
