Re: Anna at the US Open 09

tough draw, as expected but she can beat Q and Bepa isn't in her best shape

My Russian Roulette
Bepa Zvonareva ||Nastia Pavlyuchenkova ||Maria Sharapova ||Katya Makarova
Liza Kulichkova|| Daria Gavrilova
Teliana Pereira || Beatriz Haddad Maia

Re: Anna at the US Open 09

Zvonareva is not at her best, so my guess is that our little princess can reach the 3rd round and defeat Vesnina yet again !! En route to R4 against Pennetta !!!

Re: Anna at the US Open 09

Anna has nothing to defend at this US Open (unlike last season), so no pressure

If she plays like she did this week she could get past a Zvonareva who isn't at her best yet.

Re: Anna at the US Open 09

if she beats the Q shes gained 100 points, so even a 2nd round wouldn't be bad. vera isn't in form and is still struggling after her injury. chak should feel confident of a shot in the 3rd round

Re: Anna at the US Open 09

She has drawn Erika Sema. I find it hard to believe Erika has any chance at all against Anna. I saw her play before in NZ where she won a 10k a few years ago and she had absolutely nothing, no power, no anything except consistency, of course she has obviously improved a bit, but I still doubt she will be any problem for Anna. This is one of the easiest qualifiers to draw. She did beat Kimiko though, but I just don't think she will pose any problems for Anna unless her game has changed completely. If she loses this .

Edit: Anna has actually drawn Erika's big sister Yurika. So I haven't watched her play, maybe she is a bit like her little sis, but she is obviously a little bit better, ranked 170 instead of 279, and now that upset over Kimiko is troubling me a bit.

Re: Anna at the US Open 09

Erika or Yurika Sema??

Iíd like to take Roddickís serve, Gonzalesís forehandÖ As well as Federerís backhand and mental. Then Iíd be world number 1, easy! No one could beat me.

Good for Anna, I think, better than other Q, but I totally don't know this player.

Re: Anna at the US Open 09

i have a feeling sema is a complete pusher, but will be fast and get a lot of balls in court.

anna should win this match in straights, if she doesn't i will be deeply unhappy.

she plays tomorrow on court 10.

Oh, they put Erika on the printable draw but I think it's actually Yurika, her sister. So this is not the girl I watched. Maybe she is a bit different to her sister, but I think most likely they are similar. Big sister Yurika is obviously a wee bit better, 170 as opposed to 279.

Well her sister Erika whom I watched was a complete pusher, very consistent though, she drove Anna Smith of Britain insane. Most likely Yurika is consistent too, but she must have something a bit better than her little sister, either a little more power or maybe even quicker around the court. Still think Anna should win easily, but after realising this is not the same girl I watched but her big sister, the win over Kimiko is bothering me more.

Re: Anna at the US Open 09

a 1st round win would put chak inside the top 60 (around 55 depending on other results) which isn't bad considering she was 75 last week. she has a great chance to gain loads of points the end of this season.

i like that shes playing in korea, a smaller tournament will do her good.
