You do know she has only 15 tournaments in her schedule right? If she played 18, I'd be happy already..

Ana playing only 15 tournaments is absolutely pathetic. What's her excuse? Overplaying? Over training?
Promotional duties? Take a book out of the "Sharapova Media Training 101 book" and day NO for the sake of your actual career, sweetie. Otherwise noone is gonna ask you to even promote a f*cking international level tournament anymore.
Well, it's not like she'd actually play those!
Sorry for ranting, but WHAT has to happen in order for her to see that practice sessions and WAG-ging is NOT gonna help her in actual matches!

Seriously,1 or 2 Dinara fans don't like Ana too much(though most posters in the forums of my other favorites are pretty gentle with Ana...and a few are fans,too),and I assured one of them that Ana really was a sincerely sweet gal...that it wasn't just an act.I told her that we NEED more Sweet Anas to lighten this often-dark world.......If only Ana could somehow glean a portion of Steffi's mentality by hanging around Heinz.Imagine how she would RULE tennis as a gorgeous raven-haired version of Steffi....Maybe allowing Ana to be a little soft in the head is God's way of preventing Ana from taking over the world

I find this actually funny.. because she has said in interviews that she needs to play more matches.. and that she needs to get lots of matches in.. but not only isn't she doing anything to try to play more of these matches, but she is actually taking one month out now.. I would laugh if it wasn't so sad..

Even Kim, who said would look for a limited schedule, is planning on playing a MM on clay.. But hey.. that's just not good enough for Ana.

My thoughts exactly! This would of been the perfect tournament for Ana to add to her schedule.

Since you've taken my guess, I'll go all out optimistic and say 6.

She should make "getting 3 wins until RG!!!!!" a goal.

Coaching update

Ana today confirmed that her co-operation with Heinz Gunthardt will continue into the clay court season. The pair began working together in February, and agreed to reassess things after the Sony Ericsson Open in Miami.

"I feel I improved a lot over the last month," said Ana in Miami last week. "Obviously working with a new coach, with Heinz, I can see improvements actually almost on daily basis. It's very encouraging."
It's something.

Re: Clay is a sucky server's best friend: Time to make it happen!

Latest Coaching update is very good news, because if they fire former Steffi Graf long-time coach after just 50 days it will be sure sign of panic and anarchy of Ana's team, no matter how good is her results or not in so short period. Last season they fired Craig Kardon just before start of Grass season, surface where players which he coached have biggest success, so Ana is in situation in 2009 that during clay season her coached grasscourt expert (Kardon) and during Grass season her coached proven claycourt expert (Groenfeld). Total mess.

Talking again about Ana 2010 schedule I must to say that only event which she really missed so far and should to play is Dubai, but her mental state of mind after that horrible FED CUP weekend against Russia will probably make of her easy target even for mediocre opponents. So reason why Ana played just 15 events in last 12 months is more because her terrible 2nd half of 2009 season schedule. If Ana will play Stuttgart, Rome, Madrid, Paris, grass_warmup and Wimbledon - that means 10 events (including 5 two weekers) + one FED CUP and one EXO weekend in first half of season which is OK schedulle IMO for 1st half.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is

AMAZING BELGRADE MIRACLE: In just three years (2008-2011) 5 different players born in same city reach world #1 in rankings and several GS titles and finals (WTA singles: Ana Ivanovic and Jelena Jankovic, ATP singles: Novak Djokovic, ATP doubles: Nenad Zimonjic and Daniel Nestor... with notable performances of Bojana Jovanovski, Janko Tipsarevic and Viktor Troicki which is also all three born in Belgrade)

The coaching update was all too predictable.. no surprise.

And well.. expect her to go running back to APDP for Wimbledon if she gets no results during clay court season. This is all so predictable...

The annoucement says it clearly... she will continue to work with him through the clay court season. I very much doubt they would keep him if she keeps sucking.

Actually... no... she has only 15 tournaments in her schedule for the whole year of 2010. We are not even talking about her playing only 15 tournaments in the past year, since that was clear once she cut her season short. We are talking about her not wanting to change that.. she is still only planning on playing that ammount of tournaments for this entire season. That's not enough, especially for someone who is only playing 1 or 2 matches each tournament. And pleeease.. do not count that one set exho as a tournament..

I think that's asking too much of her.. she can't set realistic goals to save herself.

Very strong MD in Stuttgart
Strange decision to play Stuttgart, not Fes. But it probably has to do with her pride

Re: Clay is a sucky server's best friend: Time to make it happen!

I have a feeling she'll be back with APDP by the summer too.

I loved how her site keeps bragging how great she looks in practice. I don't doubt that, but when are they going to realize that practice and matches are two totally different things? Versi thought it was so amazing how she beat a top 5 player.....IN PRACTICE!!!! You see why I loather her management so much? Yes, I know I been very defensive of Ana lately trying to play devil's advocate in regards to her poor scheduling and I still believe she does want to play more as naive I may sound saying that, but come on already, practice ain't going to do her shit unless she shows the improvements in matches. Add at least something or give a thorough explanation on why they decided to go the route they did with her schedule.

Apathetic Ana Ivanovic fan.

Ana will play in Rome without using Wild Card :coolranking:
Please don't start now with comments this is not event for Ana... there will be Ana and 42 TOP10 players...etc She can win at least one or two matches

BTW for all who want to see Ana playing International level events I think I have good news. I think that Ana Ivanovic 2010 warm-up tournament at grass will be 's-Hertogenbosch (Holland, 220K$ International)! Reason for this my exclusive speculation is fact that since this year former ORDINA Open mutate into UNICEF Open and if Ana stays healthy after RG I have strong feeling that she will choose this International event for Wimbledon preparations (instead Premier Eastbourne). Other "Unicef players" which I also expect there is Jelena Jankovic and Justine Henin, and also it's not secret that most famous Flemish woman Kim Clijsters traditionally like to play charity events and like to play in Holland.

and I'm not even fan of Ana Ivanovic... just an objective observer who realize how perfect she is
