Hobart 2012 - Return of the Chak!!!

Ok so i am making this thread to get the ball rolling for Chak's new season. It is a $220,000 International tournament. Website - http://www.hobartinternational.com.au/


We can do a countdown, it is 17 days till the tournament starts. I'll update this post with the draw and schedule when they are released.

Do we want a 'Anna Chakvetadze - 2012 Livescores thread' to do livescoring in throughout 2012, if so i will let one of chak's other fans open it as i have made one for a previous year.

My hopes for this tournament is chak is competitive against whoever she plays and she doesn't hit a huge number of DF's or errors.

entry as it stands so far (bolded seeds) -

Yanina Wickmayer BEL 26
Anabel Medina Garrigues ESP 27
Monica Niculescu ROU 30
Petra Cetkovska CZE 31
Angelique Kerber GER 32
Jarmila Gajdosova AUS 33
Shahar Peer ISR 37
Ksenia Pervak RUS 39

Irina-Camelia Begu ROU 40
Klara Zakopalova CZE 41
Sara Errani ITA 45
Tsvetana Pironkova BUL 46
Jie Zheng CHN 47
Ayumi Morita JPN 49
Elena Baltacha GBR 50
Lucie Hradecka CZE 51
Simona Halep ROU 53
Bethanie Mattek-Sands USA 55
Carla Suarez Navarro ESP 56
Elena Vesnina RUS 57
Galina Voskoboeva KAZ 58
Johanna Larsson SWE 59
Anna Chakvetadze RUS 59
Sorana Cirstea ROU 60
Casey Dellacqua (WC) AUS 143

Re: Hobart - Return of the Chak!!!

from Hobart's website -

"Strong competition will come from 2011 finalist and one of the biggest personalities on the WTA Tour, the USA’s Bethanie Mattek-Sands, as well as former champions Anna Chakvetadze, 2007, and China’s Jie Zheng, 2005"

Re: Hobart - Return of the Chak!!!

So she has a 59 rank for 6 tournaments? That should be enough to get a regular ranking if she stays healthy

The most wasted of all days is one without laughter....

Re: Hobart - Return of the Chak!!!

btw if anyone is intrested the title of the thread is a play on the mid 90's hit for mark morrison called 'return of the mack'.

yes well after 6 tournaments we should know where chak's level is, anywhere inside the top 200 after those 6 tournaments would be good.

Re: Hobart - Return of the Chak!!!

Hope that it's really tennis now that keeps her preoccupied - and politics not getting in the way of a comeback.
