Anna in L.A

ok so the L.A draw has been made and our chak has drawn razzano, not a great draw but not terrible either. razzano can be very streaky so i give chak a good chance in this.

anyway i was suprised to see chak in LA as i was sure she was missing this tournament. does anyone know if she was a late entry or had her name down all along?

Probably a late entry. Seems like losing first round of Stanford wasn't part of the plan!

In theory Anna should be at her most confident on US hard courts. LA is just another opportunity to get a win which may spark her revival. Razzano can be streaky but I still feel like this is a trickier draw than Kirilenko which isn't good.

actually i prefer razzano to kirilenko. razzano will go for it most of the time so chak will play a lot of 'reaction' tennis. whereas i can imagine kirilenko hitting mid-paced topspin balls to chak and chak being in termoil as to whether to attack or rally with kirilenko. razzano will make the choices for anna, its going to be chak running a lot and she will know any easy ball she MUST attack.

i always feel chak has problems when she neither knows whether to attack or rally. when she plays a bit hitter like venus the choice is made for her she must play counter-puch tennis, hence usually playing well against venus.

Re: Anna in L.A

wooop our anna finally chalks up another win. i knew razzano would be a good draw, forcing chak into a gameplan.

next round is also winnable. this summer hardcourt season could be a turning point for chak, i truely hope she sees it as that.

woop a top 20 win as well.

Re: Anna in L.A

Very good result against a Top 20 player! Bit of a wobble at the end of the first set from what I saw but that's par for the course. Anna seemed to get herself out of some tight spots in this match which is encouraging.
