Grass season should have it's own thread, IMO

Even if Ana will probably only get 3 wins between now and the USO

Ivanovic * Kvitova * Serena

3 wins?

Which tournament will be her fluke week?

Could somebody answer this question....IF you're sure.Does Birmingham qualifying start Saturday of next week during RG??The LTA website is as incompetent as you'd expect from a country whose tennis has gone into the toilet after having been pioneers....Won't even elaborate on the pathetic decline in 'Her Majesty's Empire'

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

That would be cool.. but unlikely.. Ana seems to get even worse at slams.

She has won 2 matches in her last 3 slams.

I'm actually hoping she loses in the first round.. she needs something to make her realize she is the one who has to change.

If Ana gets outhit while playing on clay, grass is going to be a disaster. I hope she uses this time before her next tournament wisely.

i hope she'll draw serena in the first round, so she'll teach her a bit of aggressive play

Yes.. I'm hoping for a really tough first round.. A good run proved to be bad.. since her last 4 matches have been perhaps the worst of a very bad year. So maybe a run of huge beatdowns is needed?

Found out that Birmingham info,btw....I've gotten to the point where I agree with you on the beatdowns...but I want more....I wanna see respected leaders like Chris Evert come out and openly state,after the losses,that Ana is a psychological wreck and needs counselling.If we had Evert...and McEnroe...and Wilander...and Navrat,etc.,ALL saying the same thing...then even ANA would have a hard time denying it.Part of the problem,I suspect,is that Ana is so sweet that commentators feel sorry for her;they're reluctant to say,"Ana has become a joke now!".....yet that's EXACTLY what she needs...to have respected voices laughing at her or hitting her upside the head with the cold,hard truth...otherwise she'll just rationalize the beatdowns as she does with everything else

Maybe that's needed for Ana to get sick of losing..

I think she has fallen into a very dangerous comfort zone. She is just okay with losing now.. it's normal. So whenever things are tough she just tells herself that this is not her day, things are not there for her today.. and it makes all that much easier to let go and lose. She needs to put a stop to that.
