Oki, got it already, up for another 1st round loss :help:
Oct 6th, 2008, 06:34 AM
Caroline will be tough... very tough for Anna right now. But Anna is capable of winning, as always. Surely being in Russia will help her mentally?
Oct 6th, 2008, 06:09 PM
This draw and in her condition = :help:

Good luck to Anna Chakvetadze!
I have never been a fan of the girl, but I want her to win tomorrow(even though I am a big fan of Caroline Wozniaki).
As a fan of Nicole, I know what it is like to be a watching your favorite slumping to the max. Both are young girls with a lot going on in their lives, and I really hope that AnnaC can pull this one out. Good luck to her and her fans, I will be cheering for you!
Go Anna! :bounce:

Hey all! Haven't been in Chaky's forum for a while. Well it's Kremlin Cup time. There was a time not so long ago when Chaky shocked just about everyone and won this event. <Sigh> Those days seemed so far and away now.
Now she's first up against Wozniacki. A constantly improving player and very consistent. She has beaten Anna before, in fact she's guilty of snapping Anna's perfect record in finals. ;) I think we all know who will come out the winner but as always there's a slim hope that maybe Chak will pull herself together and win in front of her home crowd. She's in Russia after all but she's not really a Myskina when playing in Russia. She had lost early here before like you know...last year. :tape: :o Anyways enough of this uplifting talk...Go Anna! :lol:
Tight finish but to be honest I never expect Anna to win doubles matches any more.
And singles matches as well?? :p Just kidding. :)
ETA: I've noticed Anna seems to play against a large variety of partners. I think this is her first time to partner with Cibulkova.

6-2 1-6 :help: Don't tell me this will be another 3 set loss. C'mon Anna. Let's just... pretend that second set didn't happen.
Oct 8th, 2008, 08:28 AM
Damn, Anna wake up!!! It's time to win!!!
Oct 8th, 2008, 08:38 AM
Aha! Anna breaks back for 2-2. Maybe this is the beginning of the fightback. :bounce:
Oct 8th, 2008, 09:06 AM
6-2, 1-6, 4-6
Yet another early loss. :tape:
You know she is no longer elite Russian player....when Goldenlox stops writing about her! :rolleyes:
Oct 8th, 2008, 09:22 AM
I guess we all knew Caro would be tough... but she was pretty close this time so she made me get my hopes up... :sad:
Oct 8th, 2008, 09:24 AM
Expected loss when you know Anna has been shite during the whole year except in Paris. I still can't understand how Anna still love making a fool of herself with such horrible results... Anna : Take a Break NOW ! Stop insulting yourself : it has been more than enough this year. Come back focussed in 2009.

08.10.2008 Chakvetadze lost in the 1st round
The Russian Anna Chakvetadze lost to the Dutch Caroline Wozniacki 6/2, 1/6, 4/6 in the 1st round.
“The game simply failed”, - said the Russian, who didn’t suppress the disappointment in her play. – I was training the whole week in Moscow, but it didn’t help”.
The tennis player confessed that she is in bad shape and won’t be able to participate in Zurich tournament , but will definitely play in Luxemburg.
come on Anna :bounce:
Oct 8th, 2008, 12:08 PM
Now she lost a final and in Moscow to Wozniacki. Not a good sign.
Oct 8th, 2008, 03:36 PM
Expected result. :o
Oct 8th, 2008, 04:37 PM
Oh no! :sad: :o A three set loss after such a good start. At least she wasn't defending any points this week. Unfortunately she didn't gain any either.
It's tough to lose first round at your home tournament, especially when it's a tournament you've won before. The signs from Anna are disappointing. Sounds like she really needs to do some hard training.
Oct 8th, 2008, 06:03 PM
This is just plain awful. I pray she wins a match in the weak field of Luxembourg. :sobbing:
Remember when she was 59-20 last season. :hearts: And take away the beginning of this slump at the end of last year (minus the YEC).
Let's hope for a better 2009. :sad:
Oct 8th, 2008, 09:32 PM
:bigcry: Anna! :(
Oct 9th, 2008, 10:35 PM
Anna to play against Caroline was just so mean :sad:

Anna's interview after her match against Wozniacki
You played great in the first set. What happened next?
Then I stopped playing great, as you saw it.
Anna, what bothers you now?
Everything bothers me now. I had a good draw for a tournament of such level – I mean, to play Wozniacki in the first round was lucky. She arrived here from Japan and she wasn’t ready at all. While I have been training for a whole week in Moscow, but it didn’t help.
Do you have a coach working with you now?
No. I am on my own.
Do you want to get g coach?
Yes. I want to get a coach. If you know anybody who is good I will turn over to you.
Do you want to have a break now?
Probably. But on the other hand it’s the end of the season and I’ll have a break anyway. I think I won’t go to Zurich next week. So there is only that tier 3 tournament in Luxemburg left. After that I will relax.
Oct 10th, 2008, 04:37 PM
I do hope Anna gets a long term coach. She needs serious guidance on her game right now.
Oct 10th, 2008, 05:52 PM
She sounds really bumped out & frustrated. Poor girl. Maybe all she needs is to enjoy tennis once again instead of putting so much pressure & feeling frustation.

Couldn't define my feelings any better than that ;)
