Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

Easy first round vs Dokic, if she put the balls in,
Than Bartoli or might Razzano , Bartoli , if Anna is not 100% fit

Re: Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

I'm going to assume anna is fit, as cramp is usually just a day or 2 tops. she has had 3 matches so is more match tight than before. hopefully she can play consistent controlled tennis again and dokic will be her usual mess.

bartoli probably rnd 2. anna can go into that match IF she beats dokic knowing she has those 100 points in the bag and has a free shot at a top 10 player to see how her game matches up.

Re: Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

Oh interesting for Chaky, and she will probably be on TV (like Kiri who's playing vs Jarka). I hope she will recover fast and be ready for this match

Re: Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

Here's Anna's section:

[23] VINCI, Roberta ITA v CADANTU, Alexandra ROU
(WC) KEYS, Madison USA v ZHENG, Jie CHN
DOKIC, Jelena AUS v CHAKVETADZE, Anna RUS
RAZZANO, Virginie FRA v [9] BARTOLI, Marion FRA

Dokic has had losses in the last few months to Rodina and Barthel, and lost easily to Bartoli this week. She did double bagel Isabella Holland in Sydney but you can't really read anything into that.

This was her only previous meeting with Anna:
2009 Australian Open R64 J.Dokic 6-4 6-7(4) 6-3

I guess if they're on a big court Jelena could get inspired by the crowd. Given recent performances I'd say Anna has a good shot at the win.

Re: Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

Interesting rematch. Dokic is notoriously unpredictable.

Re: Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

I think Anna has a good chance in this match. She just needs to be consistent enough and move the ball around the court to expose Dokic' footwork.

Re: Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

Dokic is also in a totally different position than 09. In Sydney she said she felt the pressure a lot. Pressure's gonna be worse at the AO. I agree with peanuts, Anna just has to be consistent with good depth.

And the dish ran away with the spoon..
but Hawaii was the only state that would recognize the marriage as legal.

Re: Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

anna is also in the doubles draw with romina oprandi, they take on aus pair jones and bobusic. so at least it will be a winnable competitive match.

Re: Anna Oz Open R1 vs Dokic

i see it as a positive sign that anna is 100% fit, is she wasn't she wouldn't be adding doubles to her schedule here at the oz open.
