Re: 2007 Australian Open

Yep a decent draw. Stosur could be really tough though. Schnyder would also be very tough. Good luck Anna!

Re: 2007 Australian Open

The main thing is for Anna to get out of Hobart healthy. That stomach problem could be recurring.
If Anna is healthy, she'll do well with this draw.

Re: 2007 Australian Open

The first two rounds appear roadblock free. I think Stosur would be a very tough match should they both make it that far. Schnyder is always tricky.

Overall a pretty good draw. We knew she'd have to go against a top 8 player in the fourth round and Schnyder is ranked 8 so that was the best outcome ranking wise.

I hope Anna gets out of Hobart with her stomach intact and can play pain free in Melbourne.

Re: 2007 Australian Open

Bammer... easy
Granville... easy
Stosur... (last player that has beaten Chaky)
Schnyder (or Molik)...
Sharapova in quarterfinal...
Clijsters in semifinal...
Jankovic in final...


Yeah, Anna should take the title

I’d like to take Roddick’s serve, Gonzales’s forehand… As well as Federer’s backhand and mental. Then I’d be world number 1, easy! No one could beat me.

Re: 2007 Australian Open

Anna has lost only twice since last grand slam!

First was against Lindsay Davenport 6-7 6-3 5-7...
Second loss was against Stosur but it was only because Anna was ill!!!

Since US open last year she has defeated Jankovic, Medina Garrigues, Safina, Schiavone, Dementieva, Petrova, Zheng... and many others

Re: 2007 Australian Open

Quite a nice draw I think. Anna's never played Bammer before has she?

I like to think that doesn't count because she had flu. The last person to beat a fully fit Anna was Davenport in Beijing, five tournaments ago.

Re: 2007 Australian Open

First, Anna has to get to Melbourne, and get some rest.
Then, all that matters is round 1 - Anna Chakvetadze RUS (12) vs. Sybille Bammer AUT

Re: 2007 Australian Open

The schedule for Monday is out and Anna's not on it so she gets another day to prepare.

Last year Anna lost in straight sets to Nicole Vaidisova in the second round gaining her 38 points. But with the new points system she would now get 60 points for making the second round. This is the only slam where Anna hasn't been beyond round 2. With her form this year there is considerable opportunity to rectify that and get lots of ranking points.

Re: 2007 Australian Open

I have 3 questions regarding AO.

1. Will Anya play doubles?
2. If so, who is Little Mary's partner?
3. Should Chaky focus solely on singles and skip doubles?
