The 2008 Australian Open

Anna should approach Melbourne the same way she came into Madrid last year.
Get a good week of practice, then try for every point.
I was hoping Anna would get 3 matches in Sydney, but it's over.
Anna can train up to the AO this week.

Re: The 2008 Australian Open

This was an important event for Anna last year. She backed up her win in Hobart.
This year it's also a big event for Anna. Because she has to start playing well. And a major is a place to play well

Re: The 2008 Australian Open

My hope is that Anna can go very deep at the AO and won't suffer the same level of fatigue that she says caused her missed opportunities against Sharapova last year. Obviously a kind draw also helps but I don't see the early Sydney loss as a major setback.

Re: The 2008 Australian Open

Srebotnik came back to beat Bammer. I think Anna played someone is who is having a good week.
I expect her to be more focused for her next match.

Re: The 2008 Australian Open

Cmon 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: The 2008 Australian Open

I'm hoping Anna draws a local WC in round 1.
That worked good in NYC

Re: The 2008 Australian Open

I hope it is a good draw as I really want to see Anna start the Slams off on a good note. It would be really nice to see another semi-final at least and this is a surface I feel that she can do really well on. Good Luck Anna!!!
