Re: Springtime in Paris

I would be thrilled if she can live up to her seeding. Seems doubtful to me since she is not so hot on clay but we will see.

Re: Springtime in Paris

She should at the very least do better than last year.

Re: Springtime in Paris

Anna is unlucky to just miss out on a Top 8 seeding. That is unless there's another high profile withdrawal. But as we know it all really comes down to the draw and who is in her section. If she gets a decent draw I think she can take advantage.

Re: Springtime in Paris

for this year's FO only, I'm glad that Anna missed out the top 8 seedings. cause if you look at the rankings, #17-24 is wayyy easier than #25-32. lol.

Re: Springtime in Paris

What result would satisfy Anna fans?
Personally, I'm hoping for QF but I would be content if Anna got to 4th round.

QF

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.

I agree with you, 4th Round or better a QF.
And for me it's good if Anna lost after 2-3 good Matches and lose fighting with a hard player on Clay.

Re: Springtime in Paris

I would be very pleased if she lived up to her seeding. Making 3rd round would be fine too.

Since she has sucked on clay I'm not going to get my hopes very high.

Re: Springtime in Paris

I really think she can make it to the QFs. She has played the big matches well this year and wouldn't lose to someone that she should beat.
