Watch out Toronto! Anna is ready to kick some ass!!!!

According to http://www.wtaworld.com/showthread.php?t=311754, Anna withdrew from Toronto citing insufficient rest time.
This is surprising since she has semifinal points to defend there.
Hopefully, she'll take full advantage of rest time as wells as her lessons with Lansdorp.

Re: Anna withdraws from Toronto

It doesn't sound right. They fine you $200,000 if you enter a Tier I and don't show up.
She has to play unless she's injured.

Re: Anna withdraws from Toronto

wow, interesting! But I think Anna made the right choice! This way, she can work with Robert for 3 straight weeks!

but poor Vika, no double's partner this time.

Re: Anna withdraws from Toronto

So, is Anna playing or not?? This is actually a pretty good draw for her!

Re: Anna withdraws from Toronto

I still don't know. But I think she is playing. Tough 1st match. Then Krajicek or Peer, who are tough, then Jankovic.
That's not easy.

Re: Anna withdraws from Toronto

I just saw this, so I think Anna is playing


Sharapova is the latest big name to bow out due to injury or rest, a list that includes past tournament champions Serena Williams, Amelie Mauresmo and Martina Hingis, as well as this year's Wimbledon champion, Venus Williams.
Still, the Rogers Cup will boast five of the top six ranked players in the world — No. 1 Justin Henin, No. 3 Jelena Jankovic, No. 4 Svetlana Kuznetsova, No. 5 Ana Ivanovic and No. 6 Anna Chakvetadze.

Re: Anna withdraws from Toronto

Glad Anna is playing. She has had enough time to rest plus she will get another week off after Toronto.

Re: Watch out Toronto! Anna is ready to kick some ass!!!!

It would have made no sense for Anna to withdraw from this event. She's defending 135 points, a semi-final last year. Plus she's still getting the week off before NYC.

Draw sucks though. Some tricky early encounters. Razzano has had an excellent week in LA knocking out Peer and Mirza. And of course we know Krajicek has given Anna problems.

Anna is 52 vs Jankovic. If she wins that, I think she's in the final.

Re: Watch out Toronto! Anna is ready to kick some ass!!!!

Tough draw but Anna should still get through to at least the quarters. Jankovic will be tough but is definatly beatable. Then probably Kuznetsova or Dementieva in the semis. Good luck Anna!
