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.
I also think that Ana and her team are taking the wrong mental aproach to this situation. Reading her presser today, I got the feeling that she doesn't believe she can win a tournament right now. She kept repeting that she needed time to get back to form. Of course there's reason to think like that.. but that kills any self confidence, which is necesary to win matches, let alone a tournament. Apart that it looks like she thinks that all she needs to do is let time pass and it will fix things.. which is also wrong.. How can you win a match when you don't think you can?

But.. I think she does need to play more matches, as she has barely played since june. I thought she would enter Sttutgart, which would allow her to have a week off between that tournament and Zurich and Linz. But I guess she decided for Moscow because it's a tier I.

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

Stuttgart looks better of course, but then she might not be sure to get in.

Indeed she needs more matches. But enter more tournaments is not the way. You just need to win, then you get enough matches. She still makes me clueless. But that's mostly the case with women anyway.


1. Ana Ivanovic

2. Maria Kirilenko
3. Anastasija Sevastova

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

First let us see how she will do in Beijing but i don`t think that playing in Moscow is a bad idea
If she does good in Moscow she can always skip something

Hopefully, some great matches and excitements are ahead of us.
And unlike some of you, I am optimistic about the indoors season ending tournaments. She will find her way back. She has to.
AJDE Ana!!!

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

So, next opponent will be Cornet... the young French has struggled a lot to beat Zhang (not Zheng )...

But the problem is not the opponent in this period, it's all about Ana...

It's not over till is over

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

Should be a tough match against Alize, she's a very talented girl, I hope Anci will find her rhythm - it all depends on her now.

WTA GERMANS STAN!

Andrea Petkovic --- Angelique Kerber --- Annika Beck --- Carina Witthöft

Specifically,2 a.m. tomorrow in Estado Chihuahua,Gavi,so I'll probably be setting my alarm after 4 hours sleep and HOPING that Ana makes the exhaustion worthwhile.

PARTY IN THE PANIC ROOM! Serena wins an undoubtedly clean #22

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

Re: The Real Ana Ivanovic WILL Stand Up In Beijing

What time is Ana's match in New York?


All that is gold does not glitter, not all those who wonder are lost. The old that is strong does not wither, deep roots are not reached by the frost. From the ashes a fire shall shall be woken, a light from the shadows shall spring. Renewed shall be blade that was broken. The crownless again shall be king

4 a.m. your time ASSUMING that Ana's match isn't delayed by the super-boring men's tennis that'll precede it on the same court
