Well, the ranking for that list's kinda out of date, but Anna should be seeded ahead of Vaidisova and Safina for sure, right? if not ahead of Jankovic since Jankovic's playing Dubai and Doha...

But either way, she's seeded between 5-8, so doesn't really make a difference..

GOOO ANNA!!!! really hope she wins the tourney! :banana:

she has some points to defend here actually so this will be the first real time she has some "pressure" of defending a few points...im sure she'll handle it fine but you never know and it will be good practise for the next few months which will be full of defending points constantly
soft field though...anna is well rested and really has a good shot at a semi or better here imo...best of luck anna :bounce:

toughest r16 section imo...with safarova, peer, and even kirilenko in there :(

anna should get through though bc she stacks up against those players well imo
possible quarter with hingis...but honestly wouldnt be surprised if martina doesnt make it that far with players like daniela who just beat martina last week, schiavone, and even the ultra-hot right now caro in her section

regardless a great chance at boosting that ranking and if she goes one round further than demetieva she is top10 again :hearts:

Chakvetadze def Lucic 6-2 7-5

That second set worries me. Anna was up 6-2 4-1 *40-0 and got broken. Then she lost the next two games. Then she got broken again serving for the match the first time. What was going on? :shrug:

She seemed to be on cruise control for most of the match then forgot she still needed to win it. I don't think it was nerves, lack of concentration more likely. Or perhaps Mirjana just started to go all-or-nothing on her shots and it was paying off.

Gotta do better against Kirilenko.

Probably a bit of both. Hard to tell without seeing the match or having stats like winners/UE. It can happen, especially with power hitters. The player trailing behind relaxes and goes for broke while the player who's ahead loses her focus.

Gotta do better against Kirilenko.

Yep. Makiri is a different kind of opponent than Lucic obviously. Too bad she's up against Anna. I like her quite a bit and would have liked her to do well. But my loyalty lies with Anna. :angel:

Anna played an extremely solid second set, losing only 2 points on her serve.



:eek: That's fantastic! Great result for Anna. Much more one-sided than I expected. Just looking at the serving stats, Anna won 72% of her own 2nd serves and a whopping 77% of Maria's on the return.

Peer will be a very different story I think. Shahar had a difficult third round opponent in Safarova and she dropped the second set 1-6. I think the scores will be a lot closer than that. Remember last time they played Anna won 7-6 7-5.

Anna has played both her matches here at the end of the day's schedules when I imagine it has cooled down quite a bit. If they get scheduled during the day she may have to play in the heat for the first time. I'm not sure whether that would help or hinder her.

Bad loss.

This match reminded me of some of Anna's matches last year. She won 5 of 6 break points but almost every single time she proceeded to go 0-40 down in her next service game. She couldn't back it up at all today and got broken six times herself.

Add to that the two double faults she served in the tie-break... not a match to remember.

PACIFIC LIFE OPEN (Indian Wells, California, USA; outdoor hard (Plexipave); WTA Tier I)
================= http://www.pacificlifeopen.com/ (http://www.pacificlifeopen.com/)

ANNA CHAKVETADZE [8,EF]:
1r bye
2r + Mirjana Lučić [WC], 6-2 7-5
3r + MARIA KIRILENKO [25,WC,DF], 6-4 6-1
4r - SHAHAR PE'ER [11], 4-6 6-7 (2/7)

Let's look at the positives first. Anna needed to reach the fourth round to defend her first significant points from last year.

But Anna is of a much bigger stature now. She was seeded to reach the quarter-finals, and needed to reach them to return to the top ten.

One win shy of the top ten; one win shy of a mouthwatering quarter-final with Daniela Hantuchová (http://geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/hantu/).

Anna is one of my favorite players to watch and photograph. She has tremendous natural talent which comes through in photographs. She does everything in a graceful, balanced, way, making professional tennis look easy. This is the first time I've seen her with her hair not in a pony tail. It is LONG and beautiful. Looks like a horses tail.

Second round (Friday 9th March)
------------

+ ANNA CHAKVETADZE [8,EF] d. Mirjana Lučić [WC], 6-2 7-5

It's not that often that Chokevetadze rears her head, but Anna nearly blew a 4-0 lead in the second set!

Lučić was an interesting opponent, because at 17 she reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon 1999, beating the great Monica Seles in the third round, then fell off the face of the Earth. Let's just say that her father makes Damir Dokić and Jim Pierce look like saints!

This was only Lučić's fourth tournament since the US Open 2003. She played ITF Dothan in 2004 and 2005, and lost in the second qualifying-round for Memphis last month.

Lučić is a powerful go-for-broke player who can be extremely dangerous when she's on, or self-destruct in a deluge of unforced errors.

Anna and Mirjana both had birthdays that week. Anna turned 20 on 5th March, so this was her first match as a tweenager. Lučić turned 25 the day she lost to Anna!

Chakvetadze had a rough go of it towards the end of a 6-2 7-5 victory over former phenom Mirjana Lučić, nearly squandering 4-0 and 5-1 leads in the second set.

That second set worries me. Anna was up 6-2 4-1 *40-0 and got broken. Then she lost the next two games. Then she got broken again serving for the match the first time. What was going on? :shrug:

She seemed to be on cruise control for most of the match then forgot she still needed to win it. I don't think it was nerves, lack of concentration more likely. Or perhaps Mirjana just started to go all-or-nothing on her shots and it was paying off.

Ok so my brother was there (the pics are coming) and before match they gave Mirjana roses and a card for 25th Birthday (she was surprised and happy) she thanked them,and for coming to cheer for her...

So this is what he said,Mirjana was sick on the court,she was coughing and sneezing and was blowing her nose the whole time,her voice was gone too. And she was about to retire in the 4th game,(she was talking to officials) at one point she said ''am dizzy'' but she said no no,she gave a signal that she will keep on playing...and played a good match.had some chances but didnt convert...but wasnt negative at all...she fought.. at the end the crew gave her a standing ovation....(we are Croats)....and she thanked them for coming (they followed her again and took some more pics of her)

Lučić quotes {before the match}
------------

"This is no experiment. In my head, I really never left. I'm absolutely back in the game after an incredibly difficult time. God willing, I will be better than ever.

"There were no injuries; I've been healthy for the last few years, and I've been practising 100%. I've been waiting for my chance to get away from the problems and get back to playing consistently."

[Re. Anna]
"She's been playing great, but I'm just focusing one by one right now. I try not to worry too much. I'm just very excited. I'm going to go out there and relax. I feel like I'm improving all the time, so I'll just go out and play my game."

-----------
Third round (Sunday 11th March)
-----------

Ultracute winner, ultracute loser:
+ ANNA CHAKVETADZE [8,EF] d. MARIA KIRILENKO [25,WC,DF], 6-4 6-1

Anna also beat Little Maria in the third round here last year - then 6-2 6-3. That win really marked the end of Anna's slump, as she had come into the tournament having lost 7 of her last 8 matches, and as the 22nd seed, she upset Little Maria who was the 11th seed, was in much better form than Anna, and was higher than Anna in my favour at that time. What a difference a year makes!

Wintermute (http://www.wtaworld.com/showpost.php?p=10268731):
>>>
Great result for Anna. Much more one-sided than I expected. Just looking at the serving stats, Anna won 72% of her own 2nd serves and a whopping 77% of Maria's on the return.

Peer will be a very different story I think. Shahar had a difficult third round opponent in Safarova and she dropped the second set 1-6. I think the scores will be a lot closer than that. Remember last time they played Anna won 7-6 7-5.

Anna has played both her matches here at the end of the day's schedules when I imagine it has cooled down quite a bit. If they get scheduled during the day she may have to play in the heat for the first time. I'm not sure whether that would help or hinder her.
<<<

------------
Fourth round (Tuesday 13th March)
------------

- ANNA CHAKVETADZE [8,EF] lt. SHAHAR PE'ER [11], 4-6 6-7 (2/7)

In the first set, Anna lost four games in a row from *2-1 to *2-5. She broke back for *4-5, only to be broken for the set.

The second set was a bit of a break-fest, with Anna going from *2-1 to 2-2* to *3-2, and failing to serve it out at *5-4.

I like Shahar, whom I find cute and sexy, and I admire the way she has developed her retrieval-based game into a power-game since I first saw her play at Wimbledon 2005. Just like Anna, in fact.

But I don't like Shahar anywhere near as much as I like Anna, and though Shahar's progress has been impressive, it pales in comparison to that of Anna, who in recent months has won a Tier I title, two minor WTA titles, reached her first Grand Slam quarter-final at the Australian Open (as did Shahar), and briefly reached a career-high ranking of #10.

It's Anna's worst loss of the year so far, as she had previously only lost to Maria Sharapova (http://geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/shara/) and Amélie Mauresmo (twice), and this is her first loss of the year where she's failed to win 11 games. And her first-ever loss in three meetings with Shahar.

And she missed out on a mouthwatering quarter-final with eventual champion Daniela Hantuchová (http://geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/hantu/)! :sad:

Shahar quotes
-------------

"It was really tough match. Anna is a tough player. I played her already three times - once at juniors, and two times in the women's tour. She's a tough player. She's everywhere, and every point she's in the match, and one of the tough - a tough match.

"I'm kind of player who change always the pace. I never play in one pace, so I guess every match I change also against every player. And, of course, it's hard to deal with the different pace. So I know like for Anna, she likes to hit the ball; she likes to take your pace out. So, I mean, if you hit to her hard, she likes it, so I had to mix it a little bit.

"It was very warm outside. I've never been so hot! But coming from a country which is very hot, too, so maybe my body is okay. But for everybody it's tough. I was feeling, after the first set, if I will keep running like that and it will be third set, I would be dead. I didn't know. But I was just fighting for the second set, and I start to feel better and better.

"But I think I did the best thing in the best moment. In the tiebreaker, I was going for my serves. The second set, we had hard time to keep our serves, and we always broke to each other except three times. I think on the right moments, I went for my shots and that's why I won."

----------------
Anna's new coach
----------------

Although her www.wtatour.com (http://www.wtatour.com) profile says she's still without a coach, it appears that Anna recently began working with Maria Sharapova (http://geocities.com/andrewbroad/tennis/shara/)'s ex-coach Robert Lansdorp.

Lansdorp is quoted as saying:
>>>
It's nothing to tell yet. Anna came to me before IW. First impressions weren't bad. I decided not to give her too much information before the tournament, otherwise it may have caused problems. She will think of new techniques and may lose old.

I told her to come again after 5 days, for example after Miami. Here then we shall work as follows.

I told Anna to take her emotions under control, No Tears.
