Whats the point? You gotta be kidding. At the most basic of reasons, this is her job, its what she does. If she called the year quits there is no reason to respect that.

Re: No Grass or Hardcourt. INDOOR it's all about!

I'm sorry, maybe I'm a big too negative, but I thought a long break could help Ana resettle and set new goals. She could come back hungry for win more in 2009.

Anyway this is her quarter in Moscow:
Vera Zvonareva (7) - Maria Kirilenko
Qualifier - Daniela Hantuchova
Dominica Cibulkova - Marion Bartoli
BYE - Ana Ivanović (4)

I'll be happy if she gets to the QFs, she doesn't have much chance against Bepa if she plays the way she does in the last tournaments. Marion & Domi aren't a pushovers either, Ana must play well to beat them.

Ana Ivanović.

The whole draw:

Jankovic(1)-BYE
Dushevina-Vaidisova
Makarova-Vesnina
V.Williams(6)-Pennetta

Dementieva(3)-BYE
A.Bondarenko-Qualifer
Petrova-Qualifer
Chakvetadze(8)-Wozniacki

Zvonareva(7)-Kirilenko
Hantuchova-Qualifer
Cibulkova-Bartoli
Ivanovic(4)-BYE

Kuznetsova(5)-Na Li
Azarenka-Qualifer
Mauresmo-Cornet
Safina(2)-BYE
There is no easy match right now.. and the draw looks difficult... but could be worse. I'm just going to try to be positive here and send Ana all the good energies. Good luck Ana!

Re: No Grass or Hardcourt. INDOOR it's all about!

Oh Ana's draw is not the best..Look on the second round - I suppose that Marion will be her opponent and she is playing very well on hardcourt indoors..But I say It all depends on Ana if she will be mentally and physically ok or not...She cannot make as many UE as she made in Asia..She needs to find her rhytm again I hope that she will do it in Moscow..GL,Ana!

DANIELA HANTUCHOVA ANA IVANOVIC
NOLE DJOKOVIC RICHARD GASQUET

If Ana can just get through the first 2 matches she can go deep she's beaten everybody in her half before

Re: No Grass or Hardcourt. INDOOR it's all about!

It`s not easy but not that bad she could have Na Li in first round like Sveta
Since she has a bye she will probably play on Wednesday or Thursday
I`m also staying positive and hope for some good results

I agree with you! I also think that the first two matches are crucial...

Re: No Grass or Hardcourt. INDOOR it's all about!

I wish I could believe in her! I'm really trying and telling myself that she can beat everybody in this draw when she's on top of her game!!!! Somehow it's hard though...
I won't ever stop believing in her but it's not easy when she doesn't seem do believe herself

Anyway, GOOD LUCK ANA! Go to Moscow and win this

Yeah, good luck Ana.

This bad period can't last much longer can it?

Re: No Grass or Hardcourt. INDOOR it's all about!

So.. Ana has entered the doubles competition as well. I'm not quite sure how I feel about this.. what do you guys think?

Doubles draw:

Quote:
(1) Black Cara
Huber Liezel ZIM USA

LD Amanmuradova Akgul
Kustova Darya UZB BLR

WC Ivanovic Ana
Schiavone Francesca SRB ITA

Llagostera Vives Nuria
Vesnina Elena ESP RUS

(3) Bondarenko Alona
Bondarenko Kateryna UKR UKR

Kirilenko Maria
Pennetta Flavia RUS ITA

Makarova Ekaterina
Voskoboeva Galina RUS RUS

Koryttseva Mariya
Poutchek Tatiana UKR BLR

Hrdinova Eva
Uhlirova Vladimira CZE CZE

Dushevina Vera
Kudryavtseva Alla RUS RUS

Dzehalevich Ekaterina
Savchuk Olga BLR UKR

(4) Petrova Nadia RUS
Srebotnik Katarina SLO

Niculescu Monica
Shvedova Yaroslava ROM KAZ

WC Chakvetadze Anna
Cibulkova Dominika RUS SVK

Jans Klaudia
Rosolska Alicja POL POL

(2) Peschke Kveta
Stubbs Rennae CZE AUS
Anyway.. she will only play maximum a couple of matches.. as I don't think Ana and Schiavonne could beat Black/Huber. But.. is this a sign that she doesn't think she can do well in singles, and is trying only to get more match play.. or she wants to play doubles so she can get more rythm for singles?
