Re: Clay court season 2008

I have to come here because there's too much negativity in the GM regarding Ana's chances of defending her clay season points. With that said, I am a little worried. I hope she can do well in Berlin, but, if not, she always has Rome. However, if she does well in Rome, she doesn't usually do well in the follow-up tournament, which would be the French Open in this case.

Best Case Scenario: Defend Berlin.

The title defense will be difficult, but it will re-establish her as the threat that she is. Also, she could then ride high into Rome, where the pressure is off anyway.


Looking to the French Open, I'm pretty confident with any draw that she gets. I really don't foresee her bombing out before the QF. However, it would be good to avoid dangerous floaters like the currently hot Zvonareva. From that point, I think she can take out any of the Top 8 if needed. After taking Henin to three sets in Sydney, I think she's ready for a victory. The Williams sisters or Sharapova could also be challenging, but clay puts her in the best position for a victory.

Re: Clay court season 2008

Ana the selfish cow is back She has a high fever and wont play fed cup leaving poor little Jelena to fly the flag for Serbia all on her own.

Re: Clay court season 2008

thankfully the other ana won, so we could even avoid the perennial fed cup drama.

Re: Clay court season 2008

I was scared as hell when I saw that Ana won't play.
I really hope she will be fine soon. Gladly it's not an injury.
Jovanovic won so Jelena can finish it herself.

Ana just MUST be 100% for Berlin.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

I know that she's suffering from some kind of illness, but does anyone know what is specifically wrong?

Re: Clay court season 2008

It might be one of those one-day fevers where it knocks you out when you get it - but the next day you are OK. I think there's a good chance she will play her singles match today. At JJ's press conference yesterday - she said she hoped Ana will recover to play and win her match today. And coach Vranes said yesterday that Ana felt better in the afternoon.

I'm not really an Ana fan so I don't usually come into this forum - but I came in here in case there was any more news on Ana today.

Anyway I do hope she'll play and win to clinch it for Serbia. I'm cautiously optimistic that she will. And that could be 3 different players - Ana, JJ & Ana each getting a win.

Caroline Wozniacki

Chris Evert, Steffi Graf, Kim Clijsters

I like you but you must admit that your dislike of ana is totally irrational. You were not fair about all this Fed cup thing. Saying that she was pretending to be seek and trying to avoid playing. As it turns out you were wrong. One more time. Please, stop doing this. If you hate the girl just avoid threads about her cuz you're being highly subjective and that causes you to write total BS.

Why do you come to Ana's subforum anyway?
