On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate Ana's performance in 2008? 6/10 thanks to RG. Ana's game isn't fixed yet, she's still improving, and trying to had new elements to her game. for me she played bad most of the time, even during the australian open. the only great tournament she played was RG. but i don't worry for her, if she's patient, she'll get more slams.

This place is too small to put all the players i like here.

Re: Ana Ivanovic - 2008 Best or Worst

Best Tournament:Roland Garros
Best Match played:A whole bunch of them.. most dominant: the beatdown of Safarova at RG. I expected a tough match before the start of it, and Ana comes out hitting winners on every point. Never saw that coming. The IW QF at the time i thought was most solid match of year, but now dont remember much about it. The windy Doha match against Olga Govortsova was impressive,the way she played to the conditions. Of course Roland Garros SF is a classic, and handling her business in the RG final made that a best match too.
Worst Match played: Pironkova match
Match she could have won: Every match she could have won. But if she wins the first set of the AO final, id love to know what happens next.
Match she could have lost: i dont understand the question
Improvement questions: Just get back to the consistency of 2nd half 2007, early 2008, and ill be happy.
Best top ten opponent: Sharapova and Jankovic
Worst opponent: Paszek, and her excessive celebration, going into the stands, hugging her coach, because she beat a gimpy Ana.
Biggest Rival: Sharapova and Jankovic
Best Video of the year: The playing of national anthem after Roland Garros, climbing into stands to her family, and victory speech.
outfit questions: Have to go against the majority here. Dont care much for tennis dresses, like the sleeveless adidas shirt.
On a scale of 1-10, how do you rate Ana's performance in 2008? 6/10.
