I can't allow myself to believe I'm actually very exciting to watch it though

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Ana is useless against anyone remotely in form.

Only Ana gets aced 7 times by Radwanska...

So many returns into the bottom of the net or into the crowd..

And FHs! Dear GOD, FH was as bad as ever for most of the match.

0-7 in BPs with the most stupid play.

Aga played well though. Routine easy win for her.

This kind of match just shows how harmless Ana's game is.. and how stupid she can be on court.. if only Ana had a brain!

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.

Kudos to Aga, she has improved and was far too solid. The annoying thing is that Ana could have quite easily won in the same fashion. This breakthrough that we've been waiting for just isn't going to come

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

I don't think Ana's game was HARMLESS. When she was connecting with the ball she blew Aga off the court. The problem was that she just couldn't stop missing. She said it herself you have to be patient against Aga. Consistently deep and heavy balls in the middle of the court am have helped her more than trying to blast a winner near the lines every time.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

Its harmless because it doesnt bother anyone.. Sure, if Ana had a brain things would be better... but this game hardly tinkles top 10 players.

I agree, it is not harmless and it can do a lot of damage. The problem is that it can do so to both her rivals and Ana herself. Today was an example of the second scenario.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Ana, attitude? No grunts, no ajdes, no fistpumps, just nothing? You lost like Kim to Nadia at AO 2010. Didn't appear on court, had a 'day'. Go to Nis and do something useful, smack them all if you're a tennis player.

It's not her game that doesn't bother anyone. It's Ana. They all know she's a meathead.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Sad. It's not like i expected her to win or anything, but this still kind of hurts It's just that, she's not getting any younger. It's not like she's a 21 year old and a 4R is something to build on. You know? Just to watch her get routined again and again on the big stage, it's disheartening. I mean, she played well, made some brilliant shots. But it was the usual again. Poor play at key moments, not converting on break points, one good shot followed by 5 bad ones. I don't know. It makes it hard to keep believing she'll get over this never ending slump. Maybe this is her level now and we've got to accept that. I think that's what makes me sad

The thing is that other players can beat someone relevant now and then. Petrova can beat Aga, Cibulkova can beat Vika, Woz can beat Serena, Marion can beat everyone. Ana can only beat JJ, she even choked during that match, luckily JJ choked even worse. Ana choked against Chokestur in Moscow. Like... Who chokes against Sam?
