Official Cheering/Mourning Thread for the rest of the season

She's not going to be playing that many matches, so one thread should do it.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

It's still the same day for me. I suppose it feels different after you sleep on it.

Are we going to send her the letter finally? I think we all want to say some things to our beloved girl xD

I had my top 3 favourites lose, and 2 7-6 in the third it really stings, I can't get over it

Re: Official Cheering/Mourning Thread for the rest of the season

I was thinking recently that I haven't been following tennis much this year. Then I remembered why.

I really think this will do Ana some great. Absolutely no expectations can only do her a world of better.

Patiently waiting for ANA, MISA and DANI to start playing tennis again.

Re: Official Cheering/Mourning Thread for the rest of the season

Ana tells us about the rest of the season:

Quote:
Short break, then onto Asia / September 03, 2009
It's no secret that this is the most difficult time of my career so far. Losing in the first round of the US Open hurt a great deal, I can tell you that.

I feel mentally exhausted. This season has been very difficult in terms of my health and form: even though I'm in great shape in terms of my stamina and speed, I've been picking up so many small injuries. Just when I felt like I was close to getting back into my rhythm, I would feel pain in a new place, and then I'd feel like I'm starting all over again.

It's obviously affected my confidence and I've overanalysed it too, and let if affect me far too much - not just the injuries, but my desire to get back to the top.

I feel like I haven't had a proper break in such a long time. Now I think the best thing to do is to take a week or two off, to totally switch off from tennis, and come back refreshed for my next tournament, which is in Tokyo at the end of the month.

After that I will play in Beijing: they're two big tournaments, so there is still a lot to play for. It would be great to end the season on a high, going into next year.

Thanks a lot for all your messages of suport. It has been very touching to read them in the past couple of days. At the same time, I would like you all to know that I am fine! Of course, I am very disappointed, but I am really optimistic for the future too!
At last she is being a bit honest and open.. I can only hope this is a wake up call for her, and she uses it to make herself stronger. I also hope she finishes the year on a better note than this awful loss.

Re: Official Cheering/Mourning Thread for the rest of the season

Lovely girl, she's worried about her fans


And, fortunately, you were right, gaviota!! They got the quotes from the post game presser. What a bunch of idiots these journalist and us (the ones who believe them, of course, not you )
