Both of these players need :help:. 2nd time in a row Melanie's serve has completely gone AWOL from a winning position (twice this time).

i agree. However this was almost as painful as Petkovic losing to Kuznetsova :(

It seems that Mel doesn't have the confidence or belief that she can win anymore - such a shame as she certainly has all the shots. I hope she recovers and finds some sort of form again. I'll be surprised if they chick her a wildcard for Wimby now :eek:

The only Brits I have confidence in are Baltacha and Keothavong, everyone else just seems either too inexperienced or they choke it :fiery:

it really takes something to be up 4-1 in the 3rd and lose 5 straight games against someone like the chak ... :o

but it's a nice win for anna, hopefully she can keep it up.

I always use South as a barometer for agility.

If you move even 5% better than her, you're a respectable mover.

This won't change Chakvetadze's position whatsoever. She stumbled across even a greater mental midget and that alone is a major feat. The old Chakvetadze as we know her is gone and not coming back...

Anna has almost zero confidence so a win like this helps just that little bit.

whether that is true or not, the fact that chak is still out there trying and fighting, and shes had 2 pretty big injuries to boot, and not walked away like nicole or delusional like ivanovic (i played great losing 3 and 0 to kleybanova) is for me enough to keep the faith.

her career is already better than 95% of players who play the game.

not the best match by any means, but she got the win.
improvement will be required against Petkovic, but she can do it.
goooo Anna!!

watched most of this. Anna played appalling for a set and a half but she did pick her level up, it wasn't just Mel choking

Caught the end of the second set from 4-4 to see Anna break. Seemed a good match, both hitting winners, short points (they were 1-4 in the third when the Rybarikova match ended halfway through the second set), Anna being her usual laugh-riot on caught with the whining and demonstrative behaviour. Came back after Mel had blown her lead and Anna was just flat out the better player, pretty consistent and Mel started to make quite a few errors.

Pics later.

Is it me or does Chakky look a touch more muscular?

Suprising, considering her injury lay-off, but she seems to be in pretty robust shape judging from that photo:)

well we know she has a fitness coach now, she said she let her fitness slide in 2009, so i guess this explains it.

she is surprising big in real life, big as in strong bodied she looks more slender on tv.

not sure if she has a main coach though.

Anna is probably going to win the title with Sammy there. :ras:

Go away, Sammy.

low in confidence, not hitting the ball cleanly and her movement just isnt what it was :sad:
