Well done Tamarine. You played really well - hitting the ball deep and getting some good serves in. She constantly stayed agressive and went for the lines, making a good percentage of those shots except for that little second set blip.

Chakvetadze played mostly just a hideous match, but when she saved match points at 5-2 and pulled back two games she looked to be playing a couple of steps above heinous.

I got up at 4:30 AM to watch this crap. :o

The first set was simply awful - Chakvetadze played horribly, and Tanasugarn didn't have to do a whole lot to win it quite comfortably.

The second set was a marked improvement - that is to say, the quality went from abysmal to mostly mediocre. Chakvetadze was playing much better in patches, but was still much too inconsistent. At least she made her opponent play, and Tanasugarn was pretty solid overall, despite some nerves toward the end.

Tammy played very well. I like her backhand shot:)

Good luck in SF tomorrow :wavey:

Yup. Back to back wins in a WTA main draw is a definately improvement for Anna even if today wasn't great.

As for Tammy, it is wonderful to see her playing close to her best tennis. She is serving unusually well and not only was she hitting very flat as usual but she was hitting with very good pace too. Excellent chance now for Tammy to make the Pattaya final for only the 2nd time and 1st since 1996 in, quite remarkably, her 17th time playing this, her home event. :eek:

Feb 12th, 2010, 11:54 AM

Feb 12th, 2010, 12:04 PM
:woohoo: It's so great to see Tammy doing so well at her home tourney :bounce:

Anna C :hug: She did well to win back to back matches this week. Maybe the slump is nearing its end ;)

You would not expect her to do so well at the end of last year. :eek: She seems to just work out that winning formula again! :D :D :D You go Tammy!

Feb 12th, 2010, 12:31 PM
Keep this up Tammy!

Feb 12th, 2010, 12:53 PM

So true. So many times in Tammy's career she has fallen out of the top 100 and looked totally washed up and finished. And every single time she just grits her teeth and reemerges once again playing great tennis and engineering another impressive move up the rankings. Tammy has probably had as many if not more comebacks than anyone on the tour over the last 15 years. One can never really count her out.

Feb 12th, 2010, 12:56 PM
omg Anna :bigcry: :help: just when you think its getting better this happens :sad:

Feb 12th, 2010, 12:56 PM
Tammy!!! :bounce:
Amazing shape at home tournament. :yeah:

Feb 12th, 2010, 01:03 PM
Wow Tammy :bolt::worship::woohoo: after many thought she was nearing retirement, she has made a great start to the year (beating Sesil and pushing Kim at AO, winning a bunch of matches in Fed Cup against good players, and now this :eek:) hopefully she can at least reach the final of her home event, but a win would be fantastic too :D.

Chak :hug: but as someone said, this week is a step in the right direction :).

Feb 12th, 2010, 01:10 PM

Feb 12th, 2010, 01:51 PM
The dream run has ended! :bigcry:

Feb 12th, 2010, 01:56 PM
Anna. :sad:

Congrats Tammy. :)

Feb 12th, 2010, 02:05 PM
Oh Anna :tape: It would have been nice to know that you had at least lost playing well :sad:
Lets hope the wins you did have give you a revival.

Feb 12th, 2010, 02:06 PM
Well done Tammy :cool:

But Vera would be too strong for her, but a meltdown would be great and tammy wins the title!

Feb 12th, 2010, 03:17 PM
Routine for TamGOAT.

Feb 12th, 2010, 03:22 PM
Go and win the title, Tammy!!!

Chak :(

Feb 12th, 2010, 07:45 PM
Anna's tennis so so so horrible.

Feb 12th, 2010, 07:56 PM
Tammy :banana: She's already done better this year than she did the whole first part of last year, which really helps her and takes off some pressure when the grasscourt season comes around. So good to see her winning.

Still a good week for Chakvetadze and of course this is just a warmup for the doubles, where she could get her own back on Tammy if she gets to the final.

The dream run has ended! :bigcry:


Feb 12th, 2010, 07:57 PM
It looks like Tammy finally finds her rythm back. :)

Feb 12th, 2010, 10:32 PM
Anna C. :bigcry:
Tammy :D:D:D!! Good win, now collect your title trophy, plz!!
