oh and anna plays last (4th match) on court 1 tomorrow, play starts at 11am
Yeah i about too say the same thing she have a better chance with the QvsQ, rather than playing Pennetta and even if she beat Pennetta Maria would be next, and Marion is also a player who Chak struggle to beat. Anna would have a Better chance with the QvsQ match and then play the match with Aggie, if she can beat Aggie, the section that Aggie have Anna can make the Semi

she can not lose to pavlovic , pavlovic lost to our croatian vrljic 3 and 3
anyway guys, i'm going to local bet now, put some money on chak to win 2 sets to - 0. i know i play by heart, but it's objective, i'm going to also play on domi

and- i can't EVER bet against chak or jule , even when i know they are going to lose

Anna def. Pavlovic 6-1 3-6 6-3

Did not expect it to be this tough. Shouldn't have underestimated Pavlovic.

Stats-wise: 9 aces, 4 DFs for Anna. First serve percentage could've been a bit higher than 58%. She did save a lot of break points though

Re: Clay season 2012 - Anna sliding back into our hearts and up the rankings!

next up is katya bondarenko. she is world #62, anna is tied in the H2H at 2-2 with bondarenko winning the last match in 2010

anna will need to play better than today and yes the 1st serve percentage needs to be closer to 70%

Re: Clay season 2012 - Anna sliding back into our hearts and up the rankings!

well bondarenko, as i said, it's hard for me to predict cause there was no stream..
but in my opinion 3 torture set
picking chak as a winner, aagh, guess that would be "loving-chak-wishfull thinking"
but she might win, and yes, she has to play better than today

Katya has been so up and down so far, so i really hope she's to be on a "down" day and Anna can play solid throughout the whole match

may your choices reflect your hopes not your fears.

Re: Clay season 2012 - Anna sliding back into our hearts and up the rankings!

yeah i had a look at katya's results this year and saw some WTF? losses but a couple of decent wins too. her form in stuttgart has been crap, 3 sets against dulko who has been a walking bye since coming back from injury and 3 sets against that german girl ranked 460+.

i'd say it was even money for tomorrow, 50/50 as to who wins. if anna can get plenty of 1st serves in it would greatly help her cause.

Re: Clay season 2012 - Anna sliding back into our hearts and up the rankings!

btw think anna is 3rd alt for MD in brussels, so with it being the week before the french and 5 weeks away i'd expect at least 3 players to pull out and anna to be MD.

madrid and rome she will be in qualies, too far out of the MD to get in.

I tought her PR was enough for a direct entry in Brussels!! There will be some good player if a ranking of 59 is not enough!

there is always a lot of the mid ranked players that enter brussels, as they aren't really thinking they will go deep at the french so are happy to try and get some cheap points the week before.
