And Ana should go practice with either Sven or Cahill, not alone..
If she is still there tomorrow we can only hope Scot B. is there also so she can work on her fitness i`m almost sure she didn`t practice tennis alone in Scotland

well, its not really relevant i guess, but just a reminder that in 2007 right before LA she had the knee issue then, and couldnt start practicing until one week before the LA tournament...and she still felt discomfort the week before. But she was at another level back then.
Yes.. back then she had come from the most consistently good stretch of her career (Amelia Island SF, Charleston QF, Berlin W, RG F, Rosmalen QF, Wimbledon SF), had her confidence sky high and was playing great tennis. Ana had 12 aces or so against Jankovic in the semis and ended the final with an ace as well. Her serve was clicking, her forehand was awesome. It's not like she needed all the preparation in the world, like she does now. She has so much to work on her game to get it back on track, she needs to be with a coach and practicing with a plan, not alone.

I think she didn't practice at all the past couple of weeks, which is what I expected her to do, even without the injury.. but now is time to resume training. Well.. I guess we will just see what happens tomorrow. If she is there, I guess Scott will be as well.. Ana is responsable.. she would at least start out her physical training.

I'm an all day person.. I don't really like sleeping. I think it comes from spending a whole bunch of nights without sleeping during my time at Med school. I wake up naturally.. at 6 am. Doesn't matter if I went to sleep 9 pm or 3 am.

He is one of the better known names in the golf world. He was considered one of the top and upcoming players on the PGA tour a couple of years ago, even as a possible rival to Tiger Woods one day but he has kind of fallen off a bit the past 18 months. But he's talented and still has a lot of potential. Just hasn't quite lived up to it yet.

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.

Well.. from what I've read, It seems that when he was coming up on the golf scene he was often compared to Tiger Woods, and considered to be the next dominant force. Then he was the youngest winner at a tournament (The Players Championships) which seems to be considered the 5th major.. but he hasn't yet won a major, and is up there on those lists of best players never to win a major. He got as far as number 3 in the world. So I would say he is a famous golfer..

I had never ever heard of him until his relationship with Ana either, but then again golf is the most boring sport in the history of the world for me. I only knew Tiger Woods and Jack Nicklaus, mostly because of video games..

hmm. well, maybe they mention him a lot and its just his name then. Its not a very memorable name for someone that doesnt follow the sport.
Hopefully the relationship is one without too much distraction to Ana's tennis, and i hope it goes well.

See you all later, i need to get off my computer now
