Stuttgart

IVANOVIC, Ana SRB VS SCHNYDER, Patty SUI
QUALIFIER VS QUALIFIER

MULLER, Martina GER VS GOLOVIN, Tatiana FRA
BYE VS CHAKVETADZE, Anna RUS [4]

WILLIAMS, Serena USA VS BOVINA, Elena RUS
QUALIFIER VS GOERGES, Julia GER

BARTOLI, Marion FRA VS RADWANSKA, Agnieszka POL
BYE VS KUZNETSOVA, Svetlana RUS [4]

This is the bottom half. Golovin, then Ivanovic. Much tougher than Luxembourg

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: Stuttgart

I don't mind it being tough. I want to see Anna beat the top players

Re: Stuttgart

Ivanovic won Lux, she has to be tired. She might lose to Patty. So we might see Anna vs Serena in a SF

Re: Stuttgart

Draw could be worse. I think Anna was probably annoyed with herself over how she exited Luxembourg so will be looking to make amends. She's next in line in the Race to qualify for Madrid so she'll want to do that here.

Re: Stuttgart

good luck ACHAK

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: Stuttgart

I remember Tati beating Anna at the USO last year. So the first match is not easy.

Re: Stuttgart

Golovin won her 1st round match 61 61. She reached the final here last year and is very comforable on this court.

I think this is a tougher match than beating Bartoli. The way Anna played against Sveta Fran Tu and Bartoli, she won't go far in these indoor tournaments.

Anna is going to have to play much better to win rounds.

Re: Stuttgart

I heard the courts here are quite slow which won't really suit Anna. And Tati will be really confident about this tournament. Anna's gotta show her class to get through this.

I'm not sure how many more points she needs to qualify for Madrid but I reckon it would be better if she could do it in Stuttgart rather than Moscow where there will already be massive pressure and a spotlight on her as defending champion.

Re: Stuttgart

“We’ve built a new garage – there’s space for a Porsche”

Stuttgart. Anna Chakvetadze, the No 6 in the WTA World Rankings was present at the Porsche Tennis Grand Prix’s All Access Hour to answer questions posed by the journalists. The 18-year-old Russian on...

...the tournament in the Porsche Arena:

“This is my first time in this great arena. I hit a few balls on Center Court this morning. The surface is good and suits my style of play. Things didn’t go that well in Luxemburg last week. But I hope, I’ll be back playing my best tennis again in the Porsche Arena.”

...her season up to now:
“It’s been a great year up to now. I’ve definitely had a kind of breakthrough this year. I was able to win four tournaments. At the Australian and French Opens I stood in the quarterfinals and played against Maria Sharapova on both occasions. Then at the US Open I was only beaten in the semis by Svetlana Kuznetsova. It was obviously a shame I lost to her. On the other hand it was a marvellous experience – it was my first grand slam semifinal. I won’t be taking things easy just yet. Being an athlete, I hope I can continue to improve and do even better on the tour.

...the main prize, the Porsche 911 Turbo Cabriolet:
“I unfortunately bought a new car a few weeks ago. If I’d known earlier what a great car the Porsche is then there’d definitely be another car parked in my parent’s garage in Moscow. But the good thing is that we’ve just built a new garage. It’s got room for six cars and three are parked there at the moment. So there’s space for a Porsche.”

...her university studies:
“I’ve been enrolled at the University of Moscow since last year and am studying psychology. When I’m on tour, life is extremely strenuous at times so I write a few tests via Internet. On the other hand, it’s enormously helpful. I also learn things for my own game and life in general. It’s really enjoyable in the meantime. I always carry the books with me even if they often only lie in the corner for a few days without me looking at them.”

...the fact that she generally travels to tournaments without a coach:
“It hasn’t done my game any harm at all up to now. It’s how I’ve reached the Top 5 and I see no reason to change things. My mother and father alternate so there’s somebody accompanying me: I feel really happy with the way the things are.”

Re: Stuttgart

Why doesn't she mention buying a car and building a new garage in her diary entries?
