FANTASTIC WIN!!

I'm so proud of Ana! I had never heard of her until the eve of this tournament when someone started a thread of her pictures. She instantly became one of my favorites, and I think I am a good luck charm for her! Quarterfinals at the Nasdaq and beating a Top 10 player (The Beast) and a Top 20 player (Petrova)!!

Congratulations Ana!! Keep the good work coming! :D

This is a pretty shocking result in my opinion. I must say I didn't see this one coming. Kuznetsova is looking like she may be a one slam wonder at this point.

She's too good to be a one-slam wonder. Just inconsistent with results right now...I think she'll be a fav of mine soon... :)

Im not surprised one bit I watched all of Ana's matches this week and she is a great player with a huge game as soon as she works on her backhand a little more thats going to spell trouble for alot of players.

Well played Ana :)

Kutzy should be flogged. She kept the break all trough the third then gives it up when it counted.

Good for Ana. I like her game.

What a way to wake up
Great News - Somebody must have a report, interview or something
She should probably withdraw from the doubles, to rest and prepare for Mauresmo
Well Done, Ana

Neutral tennis fans like me are simply shell-shocked by the hype around a young player called Ana Ivanovic.


She is #50 in the WTA rankings and has never beaten a top 20 opponent until now, IIRC (maybe she will beat Kuzzy today?). She is already 17 years and 4 months old however.

Tracy Austin won her first slam with 16.
Andrea Jaeger was #6 with 15.
Steffi Graf was #3 with 16.
Sabatini broke into the top 10 with 15.
Seles won her first slam with 16 and was #1 when she was Ana's age.
Sharapova won Wimbledon at that age.
Hingis had 3 slams under her belt and was #1.
Zvereva, Martinez, Manuela Maleeva, Anke Huber, ASV, Venus W. were top 10 already.
JenCap was 14 when she broke top 10.
Rinaldi, Bassett and MJ Fernandez were top 20 with 15.

What is this with Ivanovic?
:confused:

What happened? How come a quick personality change :shrug: ?

If she beat Petrova and Kuznetsova, I have confidence that she can beat Momo too!! Goooo Ana! There's no stopping her! :D Let's get this sex kitten on American TV!

She had Momo on the ropes the last time they played.

Oh yeah...that first set was the best tennis display I have seen soo far this year from a non-top-player (although in my eyes, she already is a top player)

She´s scary! :eek:

She is playing better now and judging from the stats of Mo's match she is struggling big time. Anyway I bet on Ana in this one :bounce:

wow...impressed...this Ana Ivanovic seems a force to be reckoned with (although i've heard that for a good two years now).

apart from Tati...i like her the most out of the young guns...i think Tati-Nicole-Ana and Maria are gonna have a very interesting 4 way in a few years time.

Libertango
Mar 28th, 2005, 08:32 PM
WOW huge congrats to Ana!!! Now go and get revenge on Amelie!!! :yeah: ;)

Sveta hasn't really been spectacular this year, but I agree that she's far too good to be a one slam wonder.

not a good results for sveta imo, ana is a good player tho. at this stage of the year sveta hasnt really had any big wins, she is playing well enough still to beat the majority of players (thats how she got to the QFs of AO and IW) but she isnt playing well enough to beat the top players atm. good win for ana tho, sveta is still a tough player to beat.
