Good luck to Anna in Wimbledon! Looks like that website doesn't allow hotlinking Pink Princess, but I'm imagining there are lots of pink hearts etc in your post.

Re: The Championship, Wimbledon!!!

I hope for a good draw, with a win Anna can return in Top 100 and also build the confidence for the next Months.

An opponent like Errani or Medina Garrigues in 1st Round will be nice.

Anna Chakvetadze

Hampton * Radwanska

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

Only 30 players that Chak could beat out of a draw of 128? It's pretty obvious that I'm a lot more optimistic than you are about her chances. I'm feeling quite upbeat about the way that she is playing at the moment considering the injury layoff. I think that she has done a great job of pulling it all back together again. My biggest concern still lies with her fitness. If she isn't 100% fit, I'm worried that is where things will unravel.

i understand what Sammy is saying here. based on ability, Anna is equal to or better than at least 80% of the draw, but as of right now, her abilities and her mind are nowhere near their best. I love Anna, but she has had plenty of recent struggles in closing out average to below-average opponents (Kerber, Groth, Riske, etc.) and has gone on to lose matches because of this. Right now i think that the perfect draw at Wimbledon for our Chak would be either A) someone that she has loads of confidence against, such as AMG (or even JJ and Petrova - even when majorly struggling last year she pulled out big wins against them) or B) someone just appalling on grass - like Errani, Petkovic again, or the like. it also would help if she draws someone who is known to throw in the towel when things start going south, as that wouldn't allow for Anna to feel nervous when closing, as her opponent would no longer care to fight.

Anna Chakvetadze • Venus Williams
• Bartoli • Hantuchova • Schnyder • A.Radwanska • Cibulkova • Szavay • Cornet • S.Williams • Hsieh • Chuang • Medina Garrigues • A.Bondarenko •

I fully understand why you all feel the way that you do. It's just that I've got a totally different perspective on her match results since the injury. In my opinion, she's done quite well for herself considering the practice time that she would have missed out on.

Re: The Championship, Wimbledon!!!

call me crazy but may be what Anna needs in a really difficult oponent, if she beats some very good player! her confident, her major problem now, will just go to the roof!! tennis experts always say that tennis players in slumps like Anna always need a match that make things turn around! but i hope for some easy first round so she can win it!

Re: The Championship, Wimbledon!!!

she just needs a win. she needs the 100 points and to have that feeling of winning a match at a slam again, whoever it is.

I'm not sure myself... her ranking is a bit borderline... TBE would probably know.
