Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

I don't think her draw isn't by all means easy (so I wouldn't underestimate her opponents). Some of these players have nothing to lose against Ana, and I agree that if Ana is off her game (which she has been for like the last 4 events) they will take advantage of that. Please find that form that you showed at RG, I know you can do it.

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

She had better do something here. If she could just get past the first few rounds, she'll get some confidence again.

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

I really hope Ana can make a good result here. One win at a time, but it won't be easy. Her opponents are all dangerous, even if she is 100% fit, which she isn't. Rising Cornet in the 2nd round, Zheng in front of her own crowd next...
How is this a good draw?

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

Cornet's looping and high-bouncing forehand should give Ana plenty of time to set up for her shots. Maybe this will help her get some rhythm on the FH side.

Ana has just been granted a Wild Card to the Kremlin Cup. It will be her first time in Moscow.

I belive it's the right decision, she needs to play as much matches as possible right now.

Back to Beijing, i think the draw it's a bit easier than Tokyo, 'cos Cornet is not a powerful player such as Petrova, and the French will give enough time to Ana to move and hit the ball with her forehand, so she can gain more confidence in that stroke.

Hoping she can do well, but my feelings are not so positive...

It's not over till is over

This is NOT a put-down,'DTL' cuz I'm in the same boat with you:At this point,we're just grasping for ANY cause for optimism.This thread will EXPLODE when Ana gets her next impressive win...it'll be great!

When the Lizards play their Trump card, humanity suffers

Monica Puig, guapa campeona de tenistas latinas

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

Entering Moscow looks like a desperate decision and it just shows the confidence is low. Normally she goes for winning a tournament.
But if you plan Moscow, Zurich, Linz in a row then you probably expect that you won't win much.

She had great results after injuries in the past, so the lack of matches can't be the issue. She just needs to WIN matches now.
If you do that in Beijing 4 times then Moscow isn't that necessary.

Playing more matches, then eventually you will start winning.
Then you can say: See? I needed more matches to get rhtym.
If you really think that, you're certainly not on the right track.

If it was 2 months ago that we knew it was all these tournaments and Tokyo as well, it would have looked worse. But now, i dont think its a big deal. If she does well in Moscow, she should have til Wed before she plays Zurich, then the same for Linz.

Beijing September 22-28
offweek
Moscow October 6-12
Zurich October 13-19
Linz October 20-26
offweek
Doha November 4-9
