Re: Indian Wells-Miami
I've already expressed my feelings about last night's match on Twitter, so I won't really comment on it here. It was just really disappointing. It wasn't the loss. I was kinda expecting her to lose. It was the way she lost. How do you go from winning one set, playing relatively well, only to get bageled in the following set? Aside from that second set, Ana only won ONE game in the first and third sets combined. That is not a sign of being a top 10 player. Not even close to it. Maybe this will be a wake up call that makes her reassess where she really is right now. But who am I kidding? We have been saying that for years now. Not much has changed. It is just frustrating.
I saw a reporter on Twittter (@TATtweets) say that Ana cried on the golf cart after her loss last night with a towel over her head. She didn't do press.
So where do we go from here? Of course, Miami is next, but what about after that? Is she really going to go a whole month without playing tennis in April? She has to add Stuttgart and at least one other small clay event. Given Ana's past, I doubt she will do this, but if her goal is to get back to the top 10 again, does she really have a choice? I guess I will never understand why she schedules like a top 5 player when she won't even be a top 15 player come next week. Sigh.
