Re: Ordina Open

Anna udachi!

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: Ordina Open

Possible 2nd round clash with 2 former champs here, Anna won 2007 and Klara 2005, my 2 favourite players ,may the best girl win although Anna maybe needs it more if she´s going to challenge the best in Wimbledon and lift the plate there

Re: Ordina Open

Another title to defend for Anna...How will she do this time? Hmmm, it's on grass so I'd give Anna a better chance this time to make it far. It's about time for her to get back on track, the US hard court season is looming near. Lots of points to defend.

Re: Ordina Open

I was looking at TBE's ranking thread, and Anna is close to being back in the top 5.
A good run here and at Wimbledon. Serena has QF points coming off, Anna has 3rd round.
Those 2 and Dinara and Lena will be competing for a top 5 spot

Re: Ordina Open

First Anna opponent is Kerber, I hope she can win.

The funny thing is that Anna leads 2:0 in the H2H and both matches were played on grass, the first just at Ordina Open 2007 and then at Wimbledon.

Anna Chakvetadze

Hampton * Radwanska

Cibulkova * Diyas * Hsieh * Muguruza * Paszek * Puig * Vesnina * Zheng

If that indeed happens, at least she'll have some cushion when the points starts coming off during the hard court season.

I've learned before that H2H records doesn't matter much with Anna these days especially when she is defending a title. I hope I'm wrong though. Grass suits her game. It will be more disappointing if she starts stringing losses in this surface too.

Yes, I know, it's only a strange coincidence that Anna and Kerber plays against two time in career and both on the short grass season; maybe this is also the best surface for Kerber, I remember the match in Wimbledon that I watch in 2007 and she is a interesting prospect.

Hampton * Radwanska
