1st set was good for Ana, but in the 2nd she was so nervous & tight, lots of stupid UE :sobbing: Served well but her groundies just deserted her. :rolleyes: Played a bit better in the tie-break but still really indecisive, the slump continues :sad:

She has to pick it up to stand a chance against Rena. :scared: Her Volleys in the 2nd set were :help: She missed an easy Volley on MP at 5-4* in the 2nd.

Good match from Camille, mixed it up well. But her BH is :silly:

Oh and Camille aced Ana :tape::lol:

If she plays like she did today, Ana will get seriously crushed by Serena :tape:

Scrappy 2nd set, Ana is so tense would have been over much sooner if she would just relax a bit :tape: Pin did well to stay with Ana in the 2nd set :) plus the ace :hearts: :worship: Good luck in the QF Ana :hug: all the pressure will be off if she faces Serena

WD Ana :yeah: most important thing is that she won. Wasn't pretty from what I'm hearing, but s'times you gotta win ugly.

Camille :hug: great effort from her not to get broken in the 2nd set, but not everyday that happens :speakles:

OMG so embarrassing! Ana had a nice first set after a few tight first games, but she NEVER BROKE CAMILLE in the second set! :tape: And got second serve aced! :tape: 2nd SERVE ACE FROM CAMILLE PIN!!!!! The serve of doom!

That volley on the first match point was ugly, she couldn't read Camille's serve, missed ugly on the 2nd and 3rd match points...if she didn't know how to serve she would have lost. :help:

Ana will lose 6-1 6-1 to Serena in the next round. The games she will make is because she is actually serving well.. her groundstrokes in that second set were just ugly. The first set was decent.

Stats:

1st set:

15 winners
11 UEs

2nd set

19 winners
25 UEs

Total: 34-36

at one point, I thoght that Ana is thinking that the goal of tennis is to hit balls to the net....

I'm gutted I'm missed this 2nd serve ace by Camille. :lol::(
I think Ana won't be nervous tomorrow because she knows Serena will eat her alive. She has nothing to lose.

That's the problem.. she is just way too nervous.. it's like she is carrying the world on her back.. she just can't seem to relax. You can just see how nervous she is.. imagine her opponent seeing it.. :tape:

Heck.. maybe if she plays Serena she will feel that the pressure is not on her and will even play a bit better.. not that she stands a chance anyway. :help:

She will give Serena a close match....she wont be nervous playing the world no1 and has no pressure

no way Ana being calm tomorrow,no way,she always finds a reason to be nervous as hell..defending points,being number 1,playing in her home crowd,having to return Pin's bullets etc..Freud didn't help a lot i guess

Unless Ana plays she did in the first half of 2008, I see the winner of Serena/Jie playing in the semifinals on Friday.

That second serve ace was beautiful.. well placed in the box by about 10 inches, a bit wide.. just beautiful... Ana couldn't even move.. :worship::lol:

And Camille served so well.. most of Ana's returns were either wide or to the botton of the net.. she was serving bombs! :lol::tape::help:

Unless the winner of Serena/Jie withdraw, Ana won't stand a chance no matter what.
