Ana is the top seed. :cool:
1st round against the winner of Yuan/Olaru. The only top10 players Ana can play before the final are Jelena and Marion (both not before SF), Lindsay's there too.

Ajde!!! :)

Ana`s draw looks pretty good early on, but should get tougher starting with a potential round of 16 matchup against Flavia or Fran. I really hope that Ana will do well in Indian Wells and go on her best run there.

Ana getting the whale would be pretty cool for me :D
It would mean the biggest tournament outside Grand Slams and the whale has been owned by my three faves in the last three years... Niiice :p

I want Ana in the final so she can play Masha/Dani so she better at least get that far with a nice easish draw :angel:

Ana won 1st set 6-1. :yeah:
Great serving, 76% of 1st serves in (winning 88% of them, including 2 aces). 2 out of 2 on BPs. Keep it up! Ajde!!!

dybbuk

Ajde :hearts: I was a little worried before, but Ana seems to be clinical today. :yeah:

Dexter
Mar 16th, 2008, 12:44 AM
Not so clinical in the 2nd as she lost it 5-7. :mad:
She went up *3-2 up and got broken... she was holding easily until the last game. Ugh. :mad:

jonnyroyale_13
Mar 16th, 2008, 12:45 AM
Good grief, need to work on that killer instinct Ana. After she got the first break of the 2nd set for a 3-2 lead, she dropped 8 of the next 9 points, and Olaru never went away. Destroy her now!!

jonnyroyale_13
Mar 16th, 2008, 01:05 AM
That fired her up: 6-1,5-7,5-0 and serving for the match:fiery:

I think I jinxed her. :o

Serve it out now Ana!

Dexter
Mar 16th, 2008, 01:09 AM
Bagel in the 3rd. :lol: Raluca won only 8 pts, I guess Ana got pissed. :lol:
Seriously, she can't allow this lapses of concentration to happen every 2nd set she plays. :o

She never comes home early.

Typical Ana 2nd set, but overall a good performance. Keep it going :yeah:

Congrats Ana :D :rocker2: Very nice 3rd set :drool: She'll play against Garbin whom she beat very easily at the Australian Open :bounce: :rocker: It should be an easy match this time as well:) Ajde!

DownTheLine21
Mar 16th, 2008, 04:51 PM
Despite that lull in the second set, winning the first and third set 6-1 and 6-0 is very impressive. Looking at the draw, Ana should do well in her section. Schiavone could provide a challenge, though.

DAVAJ MKirilenko
Mar 16th, 2008, 05:06 PM
Garbin has nothing to hurt Ana. Only if the wind is really in her favor.

A 4th round can be interesting. Pennetta who she never played to or Schiavone who she beat in her very first RG after beating Momo!

jonnyroyale_13

Youre probably right, but after seeing how she handled the Doha wind, I like her chances in those conditions.
Garbin is pesky, but this should be an easy one.:unsure:

Let's be honest, she has (or has had...) a dream draw. ;)

Bagel in the 3rd. :lol: Raluca won only 8 pts, I guess Ana got pissed. :lol:
i was at home last saturday night and that was exactly what i was thinking while the 3rd set was under way. and her website confirmed it:
Top seed Ana was visibly angry, but managed to calm herself down in time for decider. She played some excellent tennis and romped to a 6-0 win.
and previously after she had won the first set i thought she still could screw it up in the second, which she did :tape:

she shouldn't have much problems in the next round, but you never know with her :unsure:

Actually, ALL 95 players are ranked below Ana. I guess it's a really weak field :p

Dexter
Mar 18th, 2008, 02:55 AM
Ana won 1st set 6-3 after helluva a struggle. She needs to pick it up, especially on her serves! :o Ajde!

Dexter
Mar 18th, 2008, 03:24 AM
Another bagel in the final set! :drool: I hope it was not Garbin giving up, but Ana playing better. Tomorrow she plays Fran as the last match on the 2nd stadium. Ajde!!!

I know. FSN Midwest ended it's coverage like after Nadal's match. :weirdo:

Ajde Ana! Solid beatdown from the looks of it. Fran will be tough, I'm kind of nervous. :unsure:

Also, gracias Ana for giving me a fairly straightforward win after the hell Lindsay put me through. :help:

Sounds like a good 2nd set. Keep that going against the annoying Schiavone.

A word of caution though, Schiavone has beaten Henin very recently so it may not be so easy. Good luck Ana. :)

Uh-oh. Fran just consolidated break for a 5-2 lead, despite 83% 1st serving from Ana. She had to save 5 BP's to hold the 4th game.

C'mon Ana!!!!!! Ajde!:boxing:

The Daviator
Mar 19th, 2008, 03:48 AM
Ana has 77% first serve %.

But she's just lost the first set 6-2 :o

Fran won against JH in Dubai, I was afraid of her second win against top seed in a row, but she couldn`t make it although it was so close. Bepa is dangerous too, I remember AO match Bepa vs Ana when Ana lost easily, but i hope Ana will win like she did in Luxembourg.

Well done Ana :bounce: I watched on tv, she played very well for the most part. The most worrying bits came in the
2nd set when Vera started to come forward, and then Ana got trainer at 4-4, I think she was feeling the heat a little bit, but then it seemed to refocus her efforts, and she quickly clinched the match. Now for the semi

First set looked pretty good and 2nd was solid.
But I'm not sure if Ana was 100%. She seemed a little sick to me and that it has impact on her movement. Hopefully I just imagine it, but for me it doesn't feel right.

It's good to see that Ana plays like a more experienced player.
Her game looks more consisent and she's really good at the important points. I think the day of rest did her good between R4 and QF.

I hope she can play at 100% against Jelena, then I'm sure it will be another final!
Her best result at Indian Wells so far and 2008 is started really great.
Keep it going girl!

On page 30 of the "Ana's 2008 Down Under Campaign" thread,I posted a summary of EVERY single gal who has held the #1 ranking since Chris Evert last had it.I'd like to add to my Sharapova-related comments that Maria DEFINITELY shows an obnoxious,arrogant side judging by her post-match comments to Hantuchova.The purpose of the summary was to suggest that Ana can become the FIRST #1 since Evert who is both loved and respected by most fans while having the skill to maintain that high ranking for long stretches.

Despite her decisive H2H edge over Kuzy,there's certainly no guarantee that Ana will win tomorrow.NEVERTHELESS,I believe that her strong performance as IW's top seed demonstrates another level of progress in Ana's game.Sports insiders often assert that it's much more difficult to REMAIN a champion than it is to merely have a moment at the peak.The task of constantly fending off challengers to your position is simply too much pressure for some athletes.The fact that Ana is defeating tough opponents EVEN THOUGH SHE'S EXPECTED TO DO SO might indicate that she is ready for this responsibility.Ana appears to be a classy woman and I envision her as a huge role model and superb ambassador for tennis if she achieves the #1 spot someday.:)
