Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

It's either Brianti or Soler-Espinosa next, I know that Ana has already won over Brianti and I think that she has never played Soler-Espinosa. Whorever it will be, Ana's the favourite to win. Reach that third round!

A potential R3 match with Sharapova will be very competitive, hard to predict who will win at the moment.

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

So now she's playing Espinosa in round 2, I just hope she will be streamed for another straight sets win! Yes!

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

Not much chance of getting Central Court now, since she isn't playing an Italian...still, just win it Ana.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

If I am calculating correctly, Ana could make the 9-12 seeding bracket by reaching the QF here (so she'll have to beat Masha). She will pass Petkovic and Schiavone if she wins the 2R and then will pass Lisicki if she wins in the 3rd. That could be huge for RG, although not likely to happen imo.

Is Soler-Espinosa one of those typical spanish pushers? IDK why but I'm kinda scared about this one

She is. One of the pushers with drop shots. I already see her driving Ana insane, because she'll get 1000000 balls back. This won't be easy at all. She played already 9 matches on red clay this season and Ana played 10 matches on red clay in 2 seasons (4 this year + 6 last year).

She played 6 matches on red clay last season and only 4 this year? Are you not counting Madrid because it's blue?

So can anyone confirm my little rankings calculation? I know it's obviously a long shot, and I guess now that Serena is at #6 perhaps being in the 9-12 range isn't so good but she could draw Woz or Marion who I don't think she would have any trouble with at RG. I just remembered Sam is number 5 I guess the 4th round is gonna be tough no matter what.

It's not only because it's blue (it's not some color discrimination from me ), even while it wasn't blue, it played completely different compared to Rome and Paris because of elevation (almost 700 meters), so the ball flied much faster. Indoor conditions (Stuttgart and Fed Cup) are also different, not to mention that the court in Moscow was a mess. In the meanwhile Espinosa played Estoril, Bacelona, Fed Cup matches that were played outdoors, Rome qualifications. She already played 3 matches in Rome.

Your calculation is correct. Even if she loses all (!!!) remaining matches on clay, she'll probably be #13 after Paris. Andrea is injured and Fran has almost 2000 points to defend (2 finals on clay - Premier and GS final). So, only if Domi, Dani or Makiri make some amazing results, it won't happen.

Yes I agree with you about the different clay surfaces, I was being smart

She has a massive chance to be top ten by Wimbledon if other results go her way. It's really crucial that she tries to step it up in the next few months.

Re: (red hot) Ana on red clay 2012 season

I'd simply die if Ana makes it back into the top ten. I'd like her to do it in spectacular fashion, though.

Like, oh, I don't know, making a QF at RG perhaps
