No pushing, but a bit safer game.

Ana OTH.. even AMG was overpowering her.

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.

Didn't she lose to Morita recently? I know that Ana's losses look like the worst thing in the world, but Dani's form is much worse and Ana has no business losing to her unless she plays some of her worst tennis.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Well the draw "isn't so hard", Czink won't be tough opponent if Ana would play like she knows, Dani hmm I hope it wouldn't be like match at AO 2008. I expect win. JJ no comment, I really don't know... Aga hm push-ball-to-the-death player, if Ana would be aggressive enough, there won't be problems. Li Na, they didnt play for a long time, since 2006 Berlin I think, It's all in Ana's hands. And finaly Masha... ANA WILL SMASH HER LIKE IN RG 2007 SEMI , I'm just kidding, it will be a fight of Titans, and there will be fight for the trophy with Vica or Serena, Ana will blow them and WILL BE 2013. AO CHAMPIONS


WARNING: This is biased analysis, by me(Ana's big fan)

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

AO courts are faster this year, that will do Ana good against Radwanska.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Sobbing at Ana-JJ in the 3R. That is so sad

Personally, I think it's a really really exciting draw. But still tough. Didn't Ana lose her last match to Czink in '09 at Cincy? I remember scoreboarding that, haha. And I feel like although Daniela and Jelena are kinda out of form, they're still great opponents capable of finding form at anytime. Daniela had a good win in Brisbane against Errani (although she did lose to Tsurenko and Morita after) And yeah Aga was the seed from the Top 4 that I would have thought Ana had the best chance at, so that's fine.

I feel Ana has a great chance at making the 4R at least. I think that's the least she should expect from herself. Hopefully she plays well. I am looking forward to it.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

I want SF against Sharapova
The draw is not very good, Hantuchova is very tough opponent for Ana, JJ is unpredictable

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

Are you even sure Daniela and Jelena will be Ana's opponents? We have to see first who will be qualifiers they will face, there are some girls who play very interesting tennis...

Anyway, Ana has her spot in R4. That is 100%.

ANA IVANOVIĆ

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

I know that Aga's form looks scary now, but at least we should thank her for this good deed today. I'll never forgive Domi that obnoxious celebration. Never.

I don't recall. What celebration?

Anyway, Ana's strokes have generally lost their sting, it's true . But I think she shows now and then she can turn up the power much like the past. She just needs to make up her mind to do it...

Against AMG, she was pushing a lot of BHs but then after she got broken or something happened, she'd start hitting through them better. It's a mind thing IMO .

I'm feelin' they jealous, like I'm Monica Seles.

Ana had problems with her abs injury during the Fed Cup match against Cibulkova, so she had to retire. While Ana was leaving the court in tears, Dominika was celebrating and jumping there like a kangaroo. It was horrible.

I agree, she's just passive and gutless. She discovered she can move and defend slightly better, so now she's trying to bullshit her way through every single match.

Re: Aussie Season of FUN 2013

^ LOL, I remember that now! Ana fans were tweeting Domi saying that it wasn't cool and Domi just said something like "they're just mad 'cause their favourite lost" or something...

Yes, she wrote something in Slovakian something like: It's OK, they just can't get over the loss.

That was really mean, Ana asked for a MTO while she was leading 3-0.

Could you find a link? I would read it and make my opinion on Cibulkova.
