After RG 2008:
grass: 12 - 8 (60%)
hard indoor: 24 - 7 (77%)
hard outdoor: 69 - 46 (60%)
clay outdoor: 15 - 10 (60%)
clay indoor: 2 - 4 (33%)
Very interesting! Here is the slam breakdown, but I suspect that her results have had quite little to do with the surface of the slam so far:
AO (09,10,11 & 12): 3R, 2R, 1R, 4R. 6/4
RG (09,10 & 11): 4R, 2R, 1R. 4/3
W (08,09,10 & 11): 3R, 4R, 1R, 3R. 7/4
USO (08,09,10 & 11): 2R, 1R, 4R, 4R. 7/4
So far you could argue that the USO has been her best slam by results, followed by Wimbledon
Yet if she makes the 4R at RG, her win/loss there becomes identical to Wimbly and USO. So I guess the only conclusion you can draw from these stats is that she was worst at the AO until this year. Like I said though, I don't think the surface had anything to do with these results
But her best tournaments are IW, Linz and Bali.
IW: 12 - 4
Bali: 6 - 0
Linz: 9 - 0
The slow hardcourts of Indian Wells seem to have consistently favoured Ana more than any other surface
Also, the tournaments where she was beating top 10 players: Beijing (Dementieva and Zvonareva), IW (Bartoli, Woz, JJ, Flavia?), Rome (Dementieva, Azarenka), Linz (Zvonareva, Radwanska)... Anything else?
Interesting stats Cajka! Thanks!
Maybe we could divide this discussion in best surface for results and best for level of play... or maybe one complements the other. So here a question.. since RG 2008, in which match/tournament/surface Ana had her best level of play?
Yes! This is where I wanted the discussion to evolve
I was thinking, per surface. So her best level of play on outdoor hard, indoor hard, clay etc.
