Re: Dubai

looks like chak will play a lucky loser as peer cant get a visa. im a bit annoyed at this as i thought anna vs peer would have been a good scrap, if the reports are true.

i guess its kind of good news for chak, but i have no idea who lost in qualies.

Re: Dubai

it seems chak now plays morita who hasn't been in good form the last couple of weeks, morita got hammered by kutuzova of all players in the qualies.

so chak should win her 1st round match, but nothings a given with chak

Re: Dubai

Anna lost 75 62. So she's lost 3 of 4 matches this year, and she's lost 9 of her last 12 matches.
In a downward freefall

Re: Dubai

Well....
It seems all hope is lost, she can't even win from no. seventy-something now. A loss in straight sets even. She needs a good coach. Or a kick in the butt. Or something, this is becoming pathetic.

Re: Dubai

Terrible loss. Absolutely terrible.
It's all in her head. It seems that without people on the sidelines to cheer for her and help her keep her mind on track (i.e. like Tarpishchev and her teammates during her Fed Cup match in Moscow), Anna's confidence has sunk so low that she can't close out a set against anybody anymore.

Confusion will be my epitaph

Re: Dubai


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: Dubai

That's a terrible loss, especially after Anna decided to forego the defence of her Paris title to rest for Dubai.

Re: Dubai

Can someone tell her all she has to do to win is employ the same play tactics that she used in 2007? How hard is it for Anna to watch some old matches of herself from 07? It's so simple and obvious. Better yet, I'll tell her myself. Anyone have her contact info?

Re: Dubai
