She played doubles at FedCup with Malek.
They lost 2-6 0-6 against Davenport/Raymond.
She was on the list for two challenger in March, but has withdrawn from both :sad:

I suppose she might concentrate on a return on red European clay.

She's withdrawn from any events she had entered. It's possible that she'll make a comeback in some european clay court events, like Berlin. But until she gets her head and body right, I can't see her being much more than a top 150 player.

I must say, her demise was one of the weirdest I've ever known in all of the years I've followed tennis.

A player on the verge of the top ten, twenty years-old, and then suddenly she loses about 600 matches in succession and pictures show up of a player, formerly a great athlete, looking worryingly over weight - for a professional athlete
.
I've heard various stories, but I would put her story on a par with the demise of Jelena Dokic into oblivion, as one of the most curious and bizarre.

I think it's sad and hope it's not because of Patty husband. I hope we see her back soon, she was a good player with alot of promise.

The really strange thing is, if you look at photos of Anna, the majority of her initial weight gain occured from mid August to October. That is a really short time span to gain 30lbs, which brings up my PED theory.

If you knew anything about the circumstances you wouldn't find her demise weird, curious and bizarre. You would find it perfectly logical.

To me it was always obvious that sooner or later it would come to a confrontation with Font de Mora, or a breakdown of ALG, or both. The exact consequences (except going down in the rankings) I wasn't sure about, but I can't say I'm in the least bit surprised.

Shame on everyone involved in the things that led to this disaster.

It was a similar situation with Daniela. When someone is robbed of valuable development time as a youngster, their career can be ruined (or potential lessened) from then on. We'll never know just how great she could've been, but I suspect top 8 would have been possible.

Yeah, she really has the potential to be a major power espacially on clay...

Font da mora you f***ing bastard...

Miss you anna-lena :(

She can't do clay. She isn't fit enough.
Her forehand prohibits grass even with her serve.


Who cares about her?
