I don't think Ana vs Safina would necessarily be more exciting than Lena vs Safina. Both are decent match-ups considering Safina's form.

Anyway, given Ana's play this week and her H2H against Lena, I don't think anything would have been 'easy'.

I dont know for Agnes, but Ana played badly whole tournament. She must to play TB against lucky loser, hardly win Bammer in close match, beat Szavay because Hungarian choke in 2nd set and in first set in todays semifinal dont have any BP and won only 30% points at Dementieva famouos 2nd serve. This season before Berlin Ana not played any green clay tournament and because FED CUP and Illness she dont have special preparation for red clay season and that is huge difference in comparation with last season when she played her peak in Berlin after previous perfect preparation for europian claycourts. Ana is one of WTA tour fittest players so her major problem today is her shape and poor preparation for her 2008 start on clay. Next week in Rome probably, and in Paris for sure, i expect from Ana much better claycourts performances.

Ana's had chances to beat Elena. She was up 62 20 in Indian Wells, had SP in Rosmalen, up a break twice in the third set in Dubai, and had SP to carry this match to a third.

But she didn't. Elena takes the time away from Ana, she doesn't allow Ana to prepare her blinding winners/unreturnables. Not every one match or great win has to be won with constant winners and stunning play, especially against Ivanovic who, despite being #2, is a very raw, incomplete player. :shrug: Elena takes advantage of every single weakness Ana has and she forces errors out of her. She doesn't have to hit winners to beat her, so it looks like Ivanovic is just playing bad when Elena refuses to let Ana breathe.

From what I saw in this match, I think Elena might be getting into Ana's head now. She even yelled out to her coach, "I'm trying!"

She had a glorified warm-up by playing Szavay. She should have had more rhythm by playing a few hours before meeting Elena, but it's a match-up issue with Elena, not a scheduling issue with the Berlin organizers.

I just hate this kind of blind speculating. She's never beaten Elena "easy," let alone ever, so I don't see where you could come up with "easy win Ivanovic" especially when Elena is playing amazing tennis this week.

Alexandra was playing well that tournament. Ai sucked it up and went to work and won 2 very tough three set matches were I'm pretty sure she lost the 1st set and was down in the 2nd and maybe in the 3rd, and she won 2 doubles matches. Ana couldnt beat Elena the last three times they played and she didnt have to play 9 games before those matches but you probably have a excuse for that also.

Ivanovic has no tools to beat Dementieva. She can't exploit Lena's BH because her own BH is not a weapon. She can't overpower Lena with her forehand. She is slower than Lena. She can't volley.
The outcome of their match depends solely on how Lena plays.

Geez.

First of all, it was only one set, not a biggie.

Get your facts straight, in Berlin alone seeing a player playing and winning two matches a day is almost kind of common. Justine did it.

In 2001 New Haven, Venus played a 3setter against Brad Henin and then trashed JenCap on the same day.

In Birmimgham last year, Pova played 4 matches in 48H. She even beat both Hingis and Davy back to back in 06Dubai.

So Justine, Pova and Vee did it.
Oh, and they're multiple slams champs and moreso accomplished player.... that surely the reason why Ana didn't make it so far :)

STFU. First, get your facts straight. Scottsdale 2003 was Ai's career-defining moment. I remember following the whole tournement and was so impressed by Ai that I actaully went on to her official fan site to express my thanks for the great tennis she played.

Stevenson was a good player at that point by the way, just in case you didn't know (you don't seem to know a lot and acting like a spoiled brat...). She beat Lindsay and Eleni Danilidou on route to the semi. In one day, she first beat Alex in three set followed by beating Kim in 3 sets in the final. ALL quality matches.

Oh wait, it didn't stop that, she then played her double matches - yes, both semi then final again, beating no other than Linsday and Lisa Raymond in the final.

Ana is a great player but really she forgot her forehand yesterday. If she got tired after just an easy set in the morning - she should work on her fitness. In case you didn't watch the match, it wasn't even THAT close. Elena played great yesterday. Great serving and very focus and consistent too - can't see it would make any difference if Ana didn't need to play in the morning.

I was on the court for that match as well, and maybe I misunderstood, but when that guy came on the court, Agnes and Ana were already talking to eachother at the net... the guy was approaching the umpire, when Ana and Agnes both exchanged a few words, smiled and startd packing their bags. Sven looked like he wanted to stop as well. I could be wrong, but I thought they wanted the match to be postponed!

Stevenson was a good player at that point by the way, just in case you didn't know (you don't seem to know a lot and acting like a spoiled brat...). She beat Lindsay and Eleni Danilidou on route to the semi. In one day, she first beat Alex in three set followed by beating Kim in 3 sets in the final. ALL quality matches.

it's you who didn't seem to realize that 2003 is a slumpy year of Stevenson. she had one good tournament so what? big deal.

get your Ai ass-licking post out of here. this thread is about someone who played Berlin semifinals, not about how good Ai was back then. if i really wanna know, i would go to the blast from the past section. you know that, Smartie?

I'm surprised no one's mentioned that at last year's Berlin tournament, Ana's side of the draw went as normal (until she only had to play 7 games was it in the semi? to advance to the final the next day), while the other side was completely screwed up with overnight delays. Then Ana, with an injury, beat Sveta who had to win her carry-over match with Justine that very day. Berlin just sucks in this respect.

Not that I necessarily think Ana would've done this or that if she hadn't had to carry over.

but didn't it prove my theory was right? Sveta couldn't manage to win both matches even against an injured Ana. i hope this story can shut a lot of people up this time.
