Nice enough draw for Anna I think. A qualifier, a couple of wildcards, Mirza and Krajicek not playing so well recently - decent quarter of the draw.

Hopefully Anna can make it to the semifinals and then play Myskina. :devil:

Good luck Anna! :yeah:

She can win this title since Nastya isn't a threat anymore :sad:

Of course when I first posted my comments on this draw I didn't realise Meghann Shaughnessy was about to win the title at Rabat. :eek: Apparently she has won 14 of her last 20 matches. I didn't realise she could play clay!

I hope Anna will have too much for her or this could be a very short visit!

Yeah, Anna has a tough first round. :( Hopefully she will be able to get past Meghann! ;)

Good luck Anna! :yeah:

Daniilidou/Woehr [3] bt Chakvetadze/Krajicek 6-4 6-2 :(

Poor Anya. She's not won a main draw doubles match this year. I suppose it's harder with an untested partnership and I think Anya and Lena have had tough draws. At least she keeps trying.

Poor Anna :sad: :awww: :hug:
