the Q draw has been made and chak has drawn some wildcard 16 year old oz girl called Alyssa Hibberd, shes only ever played 1 pro match in qualies of an ITF and lost winning only 3 games. surely even our chak cant screw that 1st match up?!?!

She clearly avoided the better players in the QD, which is good obviously. Good luck Anna. :)

Very good draw. Anna is so much better than all these other players who are in her part.

Never heard about her R1 opponent.

Good luck in Hobart Quali, Anna!:);)

Shame they couldn't give a MD wildcard to a former champ. Anna had better demolish this girl. Maybe playing qualies will be good for getting her into her groove.

Former champions through to next round

Anna Chakvetadze, the 2007 Moorilla Hobart International
champion defeated Tasmanian wildcard Alyssa Hibberd 6-1 6-1.

It was Hibberd’s Sony Ericsson WTA Tour debut and she said she will take a lot from her match against the former world No.5.

“It was really good out there Anna played well and I did the best I could. I hit a few good shots so it was good,” Hibberd said. http://img693.imageshack.us/img693/5161/biggrinu.gif

Nice start, Anna!:bounce:

Now it gets A LOT tougher in R2 vs Chalova.
Anna will have to play on a much higher level to win!

Good luck, Anna!;)

solid win again, tomorrow will be much tougher, she face bally who seems to be doing well in Q and is top 85 now, so it will be another step up in quality.

Seems like a routine win, which it should be.

Nitpicking, I notice Anna got broken twice in this match. She really doesn't want to be doing that against girls outside the Top 100. When she faces better players she'll find those lost games costing her.

2 wins in a row. It's almost a record for the last year
This is what I thought she needed, a 25k type of week.
Now I hope she gets a good early draw in Melbourne

awwwwwwwwwwwww thanks for that video. you can tell even watching that though she has no idea what her level of tennis is anymore. when they were asking her about making the final you could see she sought of felt like she didn't know if she was capable of it anymore.

still she seems happier than i've seen her for a while which is good.

I agree, she really doesn't look like she believes she can do it at the moment. I hope she gets through qualies because I think with a bit of momentum behind her she will get the confidence to win a few of the closer ones.

:awww: Nice vid, it makes me really realize now that Anna is now a "fallen star".:tears:
She`s kind of broken. Sad to see.:sad:

What Anna needs now is to stay positive no matter what. And a good sign is that she tries to be optimistic in this vid!:)
like Anna said "You have to be tough!"

she lost 5-7, 6-7, im sorry but im sick of this from chak, cant win a game when leading, thrown away 2 sp's. how low does she need to fall before she realises she has to play concentrated solid tennis at all times.

with kivitova losing anna would need 2 players to pull out to get a LL spot so thats very unlikely. so hobartis done for anna.

When will she stop making a fool of herself ? I'm fed up with her mentality ! What is she waiting 'till asking for some help ? Is she aware that she's wasting big time her talent ? I'm sorry but I'm not the patient type of fan.

STOP IT, ANNA !!!

I saw the stats... ouch. But we can keep hoping for better things in the AO where it really counts. Anna is still too up and down it seems. So many DFs... :sad:. I know Baltacha is in good form, but Anna should be able to win against her.

It is nice to see that in that interview Anna admits that in the last season she had trouble motivating herself to be on court, to practice etc. We could all see that, I think. It seems like Anna is understanding that she has to want to be on court. But yes, it is sad that you can tell that she realises that she is no longer a top player. Perhaps she can reach a top 10 level again, but you can see she is not sure she can. I know she can, but am not sure she will. I hope she will though.

Nothing else to say. Just embarrassing.
