Re: The 2010 going away party (End of the year thread)!

Ana is 33 in the race this week. I think the goal to be seeded for AO is pretty realistic. Though I'm still a bit curious to see how she will play in Asia.. hopefully she can keep improving.

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.

I don`t follow rankings but i read on twitter that she is about 350 points from the top 30
Hopefully Ana will continue to improve and take Seoul seriously bc it`s a prefect opportunity to gain points
Please don`t go there just to lose in 1st round

Yes.. Ana has 1588 points, with nothing to defend and just 14 tournaments played. So she can only gain points from now on. Daniela Hantuchova, ranked 30th, has 1925 points. That's a difference of 337 points. Ana is close, but she needs to show up and play decent/well, keep improving.

I agree with you.. she needs to take Seoul as serious as any big tournament. It's a great opportunity to get a good result, and she should take it.

She should but i`m afraid she is going to lose in 1st round
I don`t believe her with these small tournaments even more comming from a few days of rest in Belgrade
Hopefully she really did practice while being here

Yes.. hard to have faith in Ana in those circunstances.. I wish she would take everything seriously now though... it's not like she can afford to tank matches now..

I'm hoping she is already on her way to Asia..

Maybe.. let's see if we get any news this week..

I don't know about you though.. but I'm getting a new old vibe from Ana in her latest blogs and interviews.. I had seen her out of character (or at least out of my perception of her) for much of the past year and a half or so.. now I'm beginning to recognize her again.. this is the Ana I became a fan of. That's what's most encouraging to me.

That`s true but better to keep our expectations low and our jinxes as well

I don't have any expectations really.. I actually don't know what to expect of her level of play in the coming tournaments.. anything can happen IMHO. Hopefully good things will though..

But I just feel happy to be able to see the Ana I've always liked around... I was getting sick of reading her interviews in the past year and a half or so.. really thought she was confused and out of character, talking most of the time. Now I feel like I'm finally seeing the real Ana again, and I'm happy with that.

I agree ... at least you can recognize old Ana .That`s nice to see
And then people say we expect too much from her
I mean look at us we are happy with little things

It seems the draw for Seoul will only take place on Sunday.

In other news, someone was impersonating Ana on twitter.. The account has already been closed though.
