I think it's really the time to finally go to a tournament. Since Ana won't play Rosmalen, I've to visit another country. I actually don't want to go alone.
Is there anyone here who's planning to go to Antwerp next year? I'm serious thinking to visit that tournament.

I more I look at it the more I don't like it....
Straight away I hate the Australian line-up mainly coz there is no Sydney which I really wanted to see her at so I could finally get her autograph instead of just freaking out and only taking a pic of the back of her head! (I even stopped breathing when she walked past) :o

OMG, way to make me jealous with that billboard...:p
I would be happy if women's tennis got ANY recognition in Australia... Tennis in general is certianly placed behind other sports & we have a GS for goodness sake... The best I get is a poster of Dani in Sports stores for Yonex... We get none of the commercials featuring players (Use to get Martina's Sanex ad back in the day ;)) and most people haven't even heard of the major marketing ploy that is Maria Sharapova! I hope u guys in Europe, America & Asia realise how lucky you are! :p

Sorry for going off topic btw! :o

No FED cup? :eek: :sad:

Start of season is ok for me because with good result in Gold Coast she can improve her seeded position for AU open and Sydney has no influence for seeded positions in Melburn (and she`ll have one week for rest before Au open). I`m glad she`ll play Tokyo because it`s one of the weakest tier I tournaments and she`ll have easier way to get a lot of points.

Changes made to tentative 2007 schedule
November 10, 2006 /


Ana has changed her provisional schedule for 2007. She now plans to play in the Medibank International in Sydney, which begins on 9 January. The other alteration sees Ana again competing in the Ordina Open in 's-Hertogenbosch (beginning June 17), rather than in the Hastings Direct International Championship in Eastbourne during the same week.

The schedule is still provisional and could change again. We will of course keep you informed of any alterations.

Ana has a great schedule next year that hopefully will give her some solid results. I think she'll start the year with a fantastic set of runs in Gold Coast, Sydney, AO and Tokyo and just keep going from there. She'll be coming out strong in Australia and Tokyo is a great chance to add points to her ranking. I'm glad to see her playing the American clay tournaments as well. She should do well there as well. It's going to be a fantastic year for her. Lots more finals and titles I hope!!!

As expected only the biggest tournaments. :yeah:
Too bad indeed about Rosmalen, but playing in Eastbourne is a better idea I think.

Yes, it's better for her (not for me).

2 tournaments less till Wimbledon than this year.
Which can be simply explained by the fact that she was Rank 14 last year and Rank 4 this year.
This schedule is perfect for her. I guess we won't see it much in the future that she will play 3 tournaments in a row in 3 weeks.
Now she gets enough rest between the tournaments.
All the preparing she does is the right way. The only thing she has to do now is to let her racket speak.

It was moved to later in the year, I believe.

2 weeks after US Open. Difference is that it's outdoor now.
I'm not sure if she will play it. It's really weird scheduled.

Even without injury, I think Ana will play less than 20 tournaments.

Dexter
Nov 23rd, 2007, 09:44 PM
Tokyo Tier I is indoors. Tier III in Tokyo which is 2 weeks later is outdoors. ;) I am pretty sure they made a mistake on the WTA schedule.

Nov 24th, 2007, 01:06 AM
Love the schedule, she doesn't have many points to defend at the start of the year (minus Tokyo), so she could get that #2 ranking with some good showings at those events :D Also love that she's going to Eastbourne :yeah:

Shame other players don't release their schedule like this.

How long will those 300 Tokyo ranking points last ,since the tourney was moved?

Dexter
Nov 24th, 2007, 10:59 AM
How long will those 300 Tokyo ranking points last ,since the tourney was moved?Sadly there will be taken exactly one year after Tokyo, so one week after AO is over. Ana needs to win some juicy pts in Australia to not risk falling down.

Ahem, Mrs. ;)

Well Ana's schedule to Wimbledon probably has more events than Lindsay's full schedule, so I'd maybe rather not know :o ;)

DAVAJ MKirilenko

Ana loses the points from Tokyo and Antwerp (Tier I and II), but is then playing Doha, Dubai (Tier I and II).
With the 370 points of she's still 4th. Maria needs to defend her final in Melbourne so it's not likely that Ana is gonna drop in the rankings.

DAVAJ MKirilenko
Apr 23rd, 2008, 03:23 PM
1. Sydney
2. Australian Open
3. Doha
4. Dubai
5. Indian Wells
6. Miami
7. Berlin
8. Rome
9. Roland Garros
10. Eastbourne
11. Wimbledon
12. Montreal
13. Olympics
14. US Open
15. Tokyo
16. Beijing
17. Moscow
18. Zurich
19. Doha

Maybe she will also add Stanford or Los Angeles.
But I guess this is pretty much her 2008.

Seems like a fairly tough post-USO season, I wouldn't mind her skipping Beijing.

Jul 22nd, 2008, 01:34 AM
Is that entire schedule posted above confirmed?
If so it means she wont take more than one week off the rest of the year, nine of fifteen weeks. The only comparable stretch in her career is 2002 Juniors, when she went 8 consecutive weeks in South America.

July 24, 2008 /

Ana has confirmed her participation in the Zurich Open in October, thus completing her schedule for the remainder of 2008.

The world No.1 resides in Basel, which is just one hour's drive from Zurich, so it's not surprising that she considers it as her home tournament.

"I am always so excited to play in Zurich," said Ana. "It does feel like a home tournament for me, and it would mean a lot to me to win there."

With her Linz entry also confirmed, Ana's schedule for the remainder of the year now looks like this:

Rogers Cup Presented by National Bank
Montreal
July 28-August 3

Olympic Tennis Event
Beijing
August 10-17

U.S. Open
New York
August 25-September 6

Toray Pan Pacific Open
Tokyo
September 16-21

China Open
Beijing
September 22-28

Zurich Open
Zurich
October 13-19

Generali Ladies Linz
Linz
October 20-26

Sony Ericsson Championships (dependent on qualification)
Doha
