The draw will be coming out in a few hours, let's hope Anna gets a good draw. :bounce: :drool: Anna has shown a bit more promise in recent weeks on clay, so hopefully she can do something good at Roland Garros.

Getting a lucky loser could be a stroke of luck for Anna.

Slightly off-topic, but the French Open Preview issue of TENNIS Magazine has a quick article about Azarenka, in which she reveals that she and Anna went to see Mamma Mia in the theater and hated it so much that they walked out. :)

lol

on topic, really she couldnt have asked for a better draw. shes got a LL who has barely won any matches this year and doesn't have any really big wins to her name, then either groth who doesn't impress me especialy on clay or a french wildcard.

if she gets past that, which im confident she can, then its jj, who although is a great clay courter hasn't done much all year and anna has a very good record over her.

considering she could have drawn say sharapova 1st round, winner of say dokic vs a.bondarenko 2nd round and safina 3rd round, i'll take her draw anyday.

a 3rd rounmd would increase points from last year.

Hope Anna does well ! A Anna/Jankovic match sounds interesting & Anna would have chances, having beaten Jankovic in 2007.

Also if she gets far enough to play JJ the match will probably be shown on TV which would be great.

Good luck to Chakvetadze!!! I have definitely grown a soft spot for her lately. It would be nice to have her fully back to where she should be. :)

3-2 on serve. They have broken each other once so far, Duque Marino to serve next. I will prob have to go to sleep soon though, hopefully Anna will win.

Anna won the first set 6-3. :bounce:

Anna has entered doubles with Maria Elena Camerin. They play Dulko and Szavay tomorrow.

HowardH

And now she has lost the second set 6-4 :o. Anna please.

1-2 serving in the third.

WTF? I leave at 6-3, 2-0, and now AC has become Hantuchova.

Anna lost to a LL. That means Anna belongs in slam qualies not the main draw.
And in a year, that's where she will probably be. Slam qualies

WTF Anna? She had been looking pretty good coming into this tournament too. Damn.

Wintermute
May 25th, 2009, 07:09 PM
:eek: Was not expecting that, especially after a fairly bright start to the match. Anna just started making more and more errors while Mariana was keeping hers to a minimum.

Simon Reed on ES just said this is a new low for Chakvetadze. :sad:

HowardH
May 25th, 2009, 07:11 PM
Well, there is doubles :shrug:. And I guess Wimbledon will be coming soon too, so she has a chance to redeem herself relatively soon. It is bad, but it's not the end of the world.

Anna had 6/3 2/1 40*/0 and then 6/3 4/4 30/0*
Good Bye Paris!!!

Two things come to mind. She needs a new coach, and she needs to play in more tournaments.

I`m really speechless. I don`t know what to say anymore.
Anna is mentally extremely weak these days.
What`s wrong with Anna? I guess everything.:help:
