Re: Chakvetadze Fans Introduce Yourself!

Hello I am from Australia. I have only followed tennis a bit, but I am taking some interest now after discovering Chak, she is so sweet. Also nice are Vesnina, Dementieva (I know she wont a slam, but I support her anyway), Woz, Sveta, Ivanovic (honorary Aussie because she has some relatives in Melbourne). I am impressed by Henin's comeback and hope she can win some slams and make them more interesting. Male players I like are Fed, Safin, Murray (probably world no.2 now). My team is Liverpool, favorite players are Torres, Del Piero, Nedved, Kaka, Messi. I would like Argentina to win WC but no chance with Maradona as coach, so it will be Spain or Brazil.

Re: Chakvetadze Fans Introduce Yourself!

Thanks, Anna and Sammy, my name is Ben. I like the devotion of the Chak fans, but she is worth it. Sammy, Liverpool is having a difficult time and I cant see an end to it soon. There is no money so they have to get the most out of the players they have now.

Re: Chakvetadze Fans Introduce Yourself!

Hi Chaktards

I figured I'd post an introduction here... I'm not particularly new to the forum, but I tend to lurk a lot rather than post a lot, so maybe you won't all know me!

I'm Bruce, from sunny and wonderful (harhar) Glasgow... I'm 28, which appears to be ancient around here, but heyho :P

I've been a Chak fan since watching her US Open match (04 if I am remembering right) where she took out Myskina. I was a huge fan of Anastasia for many years, and was impressed by how Anna took her on so fearlessly (especially given how Myskina basically owned almost every other Russian player, and was the girl the other Russians really looked up to.) I've always had a thing for underdogs and players who wear their emotions openly - so Anna has become my favourite all on her own since Myskina all but retired.

I don't know how confident I am about Anna getting herself back in the top ten (I'll support her whatever, that said)... but I think 2010 is going to be better than 09. I think at this stage Anna really needs to get physically stronger and tighten up her footwork and serve. Her strokes are still mostly fine, but to me she's a step slower than 06-07 and isn't always in the right place when she's hitting - confidence is probably a big factor there, but I think becoming physically fitter would have a positive effect on that too. It always drives me mad how many straightforward putaways Anna flubs into the net/long after doing all the hard work of pushing someone around the court and getting the opening. I long for the ruthless efficiency of 2007!

Anyway... enough rambling. I love the little blond nutcase!

B

Re: Chakvetadze Fans Introduce Yourself!

hey bruce!

her footwork is her real problem right now, in the 1st set vs tammy it was club level and she looked so slow. im not sure why she is so flat footed now and isn't making those little steps round the ball, but it is something she could easily sort out.

her serve however is a real mess, it is not back to 2006, though it is fuller (in swing, having the back scratch part back) than 2007, it is like an inbetween thing right now. id much rather she went back to the 2007 abrv serve as less can go wrong with it.

still like you said i'll always love the blonde nutcase lol

Re: Chakvetadze Fans Introduce Yourself!

hey everybody!
i've been on this forum, for a month now i think, and there is no player that I adore more than our little Chaky. I first remember taking an interest in her because I liked her name (lame, i know), but ever since I have followed her diligently since. Unfortunately for me, as I have become a diehard tennis fan relatively recently (Wimby 08) I have seen Anna do almost nothing but struggle. Still though, I have seen videos of her 2007 play and was mesmerized the way her mind worked the court as she moved everybody from Venus to Jelena and even Justine around the court with such ease. Now, unfortunately shes retreated to being a little bit psycho, which in turn of course makes us - her loyal fans - even MORE psycho. But ah well, i still lover her and i always will.
so yeah.
