Re: Going East for Success (February Thread)
Ana played great when she had her back against the wall.. but whenever she actually had a shot at winning, she would play some horrible tennis. Those games at 5-5 in both sets were horrendous. And the tie break as well.
Quality of tennis can be good.. but the next step on the improvement curve is learn how to win crucial points, and how to actually believe she can win. This match proves yet against Ana is just not ready to win.. she isn't prepared for it.. she is just trying to make it competitive, so when she has a chance of more, she can't take it.
In the end, yet another 2 set loss to a top player.. its just predictable nowadays..
Sad draw really.. with Serena and Vika withdrawing, anywhere else she landed, she'd have a better chance of making a QF at least.. still hasn't made one this year.
Big points to defend now in IW. Could drop her as far as 18 in the rankings.. who wants to open the thread for IW and Miami?
