Ana's DF watch!

I was thinking of doing something like the Wozniacki winner watch...basically before each match we will each predict how many DFs there will be...the one who is closest gets a point and we'll keep a tally for everyone.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: Ana's DF watch!

Good idea. When she finally plays a match we'll get it started.

Re: Ana's DF watch!

This is now becoming ridiculous

Ana is in deep crisis and big slump no doubt, but no needs to blame some irrelevant things for that like her schedule during claycourt season or DF's now. Actually nobody be more happy than me if that is truth, so Ana needs just to fix her schedule adding some Mickey Mouse (or even ITF) events and replace her current 2nd serve with less risky - and everything will be OK

Ironically Ana serve is actually best part of her 2010 grass season. During all three matches (1-2 W-L, 3-5 sets) she has 19DF's which is really big number, but 11DF's coming from her match vs Arvidsson, which she only win - and in her both loses (Petkovic, Peer) she has in average less than 2DF's per set, so You must be really blind to blame DF's for this defeats. Other serve stats is good actually, despite Ana lose 2 out of 3 matches at 2010 grass. In average Ivanovic 1st serve is IN 62% and she won 73% of 1st serve points, and together with 19DF Ana also serve 26 aces (her opponents have 10DF and just 6 aces). In 3 of 5 sets which she played vs Peer and Petkovic Ana is broken just once, but that is enough for routine loses... because her main problem last month was pathetic RETURN and also too passive/pushing FOREHAND (if we not count mental game). So for RG disaster we blame fact that Ana not playing MM tournaments, or use WC's to escape Qualis, but before Wimbledon she played at grass MM Unicef event in Holland, so lets blame so other irrelevant thing, like DF for example, just because she reach 11 in her first match (which she won BTW). So after stupid thread-title with DF part about Grass Season (which is presented just like warm-up for US Hardcourts ) now we have even special DF thread for no reason. Thread like this is pointless, and thread title about current part of season (count June European grass season and US HC August season like one is wrong, and presented number of DF like crucial thing is totally wrong)

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)

Chill out.. it's just a game.. a joke.. for fun.. you don't have to take this so serious..

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

What I write is my opinion, and my opinion only.

Re: Ana's DF watch!

Well done on guessing correctly.

Who does Ana play next? I'll find that out before guessing on the next match.
