There is no cakewalk for Ana, with the way she was playing Luca. She had less then 50% first serve, more UEs than winners.. And really.. she sucked. But yeah.. if she was playing remotely decent, she could have gone far. Look at this bracket:

Groth
Rodionova

Kleybs
Shvedova

This is the cakewalk of JJ's dreams..

yeah but those players might have sucked more than ana. Kleybanova could be a danger for JJ, but I doubt. I actually think she will lose next round

I think we have to forget Ana as a contender for anything.. she just isn't.

She usually plays better with more matches. So I expect her to get to the semis playing a lot better than today.

Not that it matters much...but your comment about losses to JJ are strange,Izzy....It's only happened three times....The first time,she won a tourney a short while later...the second time,she actually played BETTER in her following match with Li'l Bepa....I think that Ana was legitimately sick THAT time...and we all know that it was the cursed off-season....Child pornographers Rolex event...contracting her Anal Tumor...that hurt her for 2009-Present

Yeah,we can see that the JJ loss hurt her confidence...but there's no previous pattern here so,for all WE know,it could've been ANYone that Ana choked against

Has estado un chupapija por los banqueros y imperialistas tras ocho años; ahora puedes bajar en tus rodilleras en tu tiempo libre, cobarde marica:

WTA suffering from Dementieva withdrawal, a lack of true queens

Congrats on Number Three, Kim! We need more of you in this world

Well.. we will see... I think she has a pretty open road to the semis.. and then anything can happen.

i agree... i think she can make it, and judging from the latest results, this RG is very open. On the other hand i wouldn't be surprised if she lost to kleybanova either, anything really can happen...

Jankovic will absorb Kleybs power and move her around.. She is not that good of a mover on clay.. Ana just couldn't deal with the power, and just fead Kleybs balls for her to smack.. like a tennis drill.

JJ won`t lose to Kleybanova
Ana with her `tennis` can make anyone look so much better than they really are
And if that match really happens it will be played on slower court than court 1 and Kleybanova will be sent home with bagel or breadstick
I also think there is a good chance of JJ reaching SF but i don`t see her beating Justine

Yes.. Ana is taking a master in making people look better than they are. I mean.. it's really easy to look good when you are being fead with nothing more than short balls in your hitting zone.

Besides.. all of Kleybs shots are CC.. I don't know why Ana was always covering the DTL..

JJ will crush her in case they meet..
