Exactly. Perfect assessment of reality.

Mental Strength is an underrated ability, it sets champions apart

Making mistakes is human, repeating them is dumb.

It's all your fault, you've always complained when she loses in 4th round.


I'm feeling the same and understand, but Ana deserves to be in top 10, that would motivate her more than anyhing at this point. Please, calm down.

Izzy, calm down. Everything will be fine. I would hug you now if I could. We've been in worst situations than this.

Cibulkova deserves to be there, JJ and Ana don't. They play well outside the slams, but they are two walking byes and the best possible draw for every scrub. Serena is now in their club.

She used to be a 4R whore. Now third rounds are her thing.

Serving like local girl in crucial moments, while Lisicki step it up on serve just when she needed it. Everything about this match was actually SO predictable.
It's in the brain, right? If Ana loses confidence or doesn't feel right for whatever reason, her serve isn't there, and that's it.

I agree. We should not be too hard. Hey, she won the title on grass. That only is already better than any of us expected her to do on grass. QF+R3+R3 is still better than her results at slams last year. For an inch, but still better.

Give some credit to Sabine, thanks.

It wasn't only Ana's fault, yes, she served really bad during that third set and her attitude was bad as well, but Sabine was a better player and deserved to win. Don't act like Ana gifted her this match because she didn't.
Ana completely gifted this match. That isn't taking anything away from Sabine playing well in the third set, which she did. But anyone would stomp all over Ana playing like that. Sabine didnt even have to play as well to win.

Re: 2014 European spring: Grass is for cows, right?

Not happy at all wbout how she played in the third set But then on the other hand Sabine is WimbledonGOAT for a reason.

I mean if you look at all the players that lost to Lisicki here , Ana is in good company

Of course I would have prefered a win or a closer third set but Ana's grass season was still better than what most of us expected before Birmingham

Say what you will, but Ana has matched Serena's performance or gone one round better every Slam this year.

Waiting for Ana Ivanovic to just retire already .

That should comfort us, right?

She's done better.

But Bouchard reaching SF, SF and QF. I know those draws were laughable, but she still deserves those results more than Ana, mostly because of that AO QF.
