Re: Anna articles and interviews

The idea of going to the South America to get used to courts and climate there for the AO sounds very strange.

Re: Anna articles and interviews

Thanks for the translation Serezha. Glad she cleared everything up. So it was too much warmup the week before and she is too committed to tank one of the matches. Maybe she is not at peak fitness yet. Dementieva also played too much the week before and ran out of gas in 4R. Very happy that Brad GilbertCordasz has been free to coach her fulltime. It really has been a hard time for her, now with not being in good shape for USO, but I think she will keep getting stronger.

no! it's not! she's not coming to Venezuela or Brasil ! she's going to Argentina! a country that has similar weather to Australia!! Argentina and Australia are different from most countries! they have winter when it's summer time all over the world (june/july/august) and summer when it's winter in most countries (X-mas, january) That's why she's going there!! Russia, USA even other latino countries are too cold in that time while Austrialia is SO HOT! it makes sense!! Argentina is the perfect place for her to train in the off season!!

Re: Anna articles and interviews

In Buenos Aires it's about 82 degrees F in December, so it's fairly warm, but not tropical warm like Australia.

Re: Anna articles and interviews

I know many of us are anxious about Anna's tough first round opponent. So, I thought it'd be nice to know what she thinks about the upcoming tournament.
http://sport.rian.ru/sport/20101017/286531477.html


So, this is what she said.
" Li Na is a good player, she got good results this year, she entered the top-10 for the first time of her career. But I have nothing to lose. The Kremlin Cup is gonna be the last tournament of my season. So I'll try to do my best and give her a surprise."
"I'm fine physically, I'm in a good mood - I play at my hometown tournament, you know. Despite my lately return from Linz, I've already practised in Olympiyski (the stadium where the KC will be held)"
"This year I like the courts more than last one. I was told it's the same and it was the colours that was changed, but I think the surface became slower. This fact would be an advantage for me in match against Na Li, because she plays better at faster courts."
She also mentioned that she has never won a match in Moscow, but once. "But that year I won the whole tournament. I don't want to predict this year's result. I was doing well when practicing,but that was practice, not a match, and I have a tough first round opponent."
" I've begun the year so bad, but after that I started playing better and won Portoroz. Also I've won Bronx, played well in Copenhagen. I thought 'finally I regain my form and there will be consistent results' And the moment I thought so my form vanished. And in Tashkent I was taken ill with an intestinal virus. I felt very upset over it, because I had a good draw there, and I'd have made a good run. Besides that, I was ill even playing Beijing, and didn't perform well there."


Well, I think it's very nice to know she's in a good mood and finally is healthy and feels good. I have some slight optimistic expectations about the match against Na Li. I hope she can win it.

Re: Anna articles and interviews

Chakvetadze’s scores best win of the year

“It is my only win over a top-20 player so far this season. I played well, while Na Li was probably tired, as many top players are by the end of the year”, she said.

Anna also confirmed that she is changing her service technique with her new coach and lamented respective problems in her game.


”After several vain attempts with other specialists in recent past, we decided to find a new approach to my old game”, she told at her press-conference. “I believe I’m on the right path”, stressed the Russian who will play against Ukraine’s M.Koryttseva in the next round.



Changing her service technique again? Thought it was going well.

Re: Anna articles and interviews

i missed the on court coaching she had at the end of the 1st set, was it cordasz that came on?

thanks for the articles, i still think the serve needs work, i watched her yesterday thinking if she had a solid 65/70% 1st serve she would be back to being a great player again.
