Re: Ana in Monterrey

Well done Ana! Is it her first 60 60 win since 2008?

Re: Ana in Monterrey

It's not smart that they put the first session at 3pm considering there's supposed to be a storm towards the evening (google says rain at around 6-7pm. I really hope this doesn't turn into another Pattaya...

Re: Ana in Monterrey

I don't understand why don't they start play at 11 am as most of other tournaments?

Re: Ana in Monterrey

Probably because they can get decent attendance to all 4 CC matches if they put them in the afternoon.

I mean if the tournament was in my town and I couldn't see half of the day matches just because I was at school I'd hate it (Monterrey is not Novi Sad and tennis is not football). That said it's definitely not good for the players and us for that matter

Re: Ana in Monterrey

A loss that followed every usual Ana pattern.. including the 2 game win in the third set and the virtual bagel.

First loss to a player ranked outside top 100 since Julie Coin in 2008 (she also lost to Venus when she came back from injury, but that's special circunstances).

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

Re: Ana in Monterrey

I was so shocked when I saw result few minutes ago, but at the very next moment I realized I shouldn't be.

She is not so interesed in International events, I don't think she is upset with this result. I know we all would be happy if she would play better on Internationals, but it's just not happening. As much as I like to see Ana playing more often, I realized that I should just accept the fact Ana is motivated only in big events.

See you on clay guys.

Re: Ana in Monterrey

What a shocking result.Even Jankovic's ghost can win a micky mouse torunament these days but Ana loses to Moritas and Baboses

I dont want to believe the "she doesnt care about internationals" theory.That would mean she's just playing for pay checks which would make it even worse in my eyes.

Re: Ana in Monterrey

Ana turned pumpkin exactly when the match reached 90 minutes, as she always does.. that's all really.

4 of Ana's last 6 losses have followed this old and reliable script.
