Anna in Bronx!

I didn't know where else to put this, so here goes.

I just saw the entry list for the 100K tournament in Bronx and Anna is entered she has really committed to playing smaller events this is the same week as New Haven (not sure if she is entered ) but if she does indeed play here rather than New Haven, where she is a former champion, it would a big surprise IMO! Let's just hope she can win the title!!!

My number one: Victoria Azarenka

ATP: Novak Djoković

Crazy Frenchies! Gilles Simon Alizé Cornet

Re: Anna in Bronx!

In 2004 Anna play here and then wins in US Open against Schett and then Myskina in 2nd Round, maybe she can repeat this.

Re: Anna in Bronx!

Anna can be only in Q in New Haven I think, so she will play only main draw matches in Bronx, that is also in NY and so probably she stay in the same hotel for Bronx and US Open.

Re: Anna in Bronx!

well yes, Smokovec! may be playing quialies in New Haven might not be a good idea because if she has a good run she'll have like 6 or 7 straight matches before the US open and she might be too tired to do well there!

That might have something to do with it. She always says she likes being in NY.

Re: Anna in Bronx!

That shows how far down she had fallen, because she was in NH final in 2008.
At least she is onthe way back. Wins this and she is top 50 in 2010 points, probably.
Then needs a good early draw in NY

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....
Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there
Enjoy This Moment!!
HEALTH and HAPPINESS to EVERYONE

Re: Anna in Bronx!

After US Open Anna has no points to defend so if she can do well in Moscow for example and in Asian Tournaments she can finish the Year in Top 30/40, I think this is a reasonable goal.

Re: Anna in Bronx!

I said I it would be unbelievable if she could get into the top 40 this year and it looks likely now. She is getting into form at the right time for the USO and its a place where she could do really well. I wonder if having those injuries gave her the time off she needed to get her focus back.

Re: Anna in Bronx!

The title of this makes it sound like Anna got lost in NY and needs to be rescued.

Re: Anna in Bronx!

it is a smart move, anna can hopefully get some good match practice in new york with this tournament. plus it is like 200 points for winning this, she has 110 points to defend from her new haven qtr final last year, she has a much better chance of making the final at bronx to defend those points than coming through qualies and through to the qtrs in new haven to defend them.
