She played in 2011, won against Goerges and lost to Venus, and she played in 2009 and lost to Petrova. Aren't I right?

Yes.

Eastbourne hasn't been kind to her when she played there.

Her only worthy results on the grass are of course the 2007 Wimbledon SF (lost to 5-time Champ Venus) along with the 2007 Den Bosch QF and the 2011 Birmingham SF (Ironically, both of these two were loses to Hantuchova )

H2H between Ana and Vesnina is 2-0 in Ana's favour. Ana said for serbian media that she is prepared and ready for Eastbourne. She also added that she had to withdraw due to injuries there in the past and that this time she hopes for a good run.

Re: "Grass is still grass" 2013. Eastbourne + Wimbledon

Ana got nice draw in Aegon International to go far IMO:

1st round- Vesnina
2nd round- Watson or Lepchenko
QF- Li or Bartoli
SF- Kirilenko or Kvitova

Draw is exellent, Ana can go easily to QF and even SF, but there is that damn WB party

A couple of wins would be nice. Vesnina/Lepchenko... I hope she takes this seriously

Regrettably a life long fan of Ana Ivanović

Question, did Ana actually say or just imply she doesn't take seriously grass warmups?

Re: "Grass is still grass" 2013. Eastbourne + Wimbledon

Does Ana really have to go to that Wimby party to show off a dress designed by someone or what? So she will make sure that she has to lose before the semi? I will not accept that Yes, she can lose only if her opponent plays better and wins the match herself, not because Ana tries to tank for that party

Maybe Ana can play in semi? If she win in QF, organizers can put her to play early morning and then lose and take 1st flight to London?

Re: "Grass is still grass" 2013. Eastbourne + Wimbledon

Ugh. Why does she bother entering a tournament when she knows she is only allowed to just get into the QF, not further. Why didn't she choose Birmingham instead of Eastbourne Firstly, she could maintain her no.12 seed on her own, not just waiting for JJ's results. Then she could play a tournament her best without having the tanking in her mind.

Re: "Grass is still grass" 2013. Eastbourne + Wimbledon

It's a good draw, the first two rounds are achievable if she cares, the QF may be winnable as well, but if The Party is what she's more concerned about, then we shouldn't expect much. I hope she wins two matches, that would be my wish.
