I hope for a good draw, with a win Anna can return in Top 100 and also build the confidence for the next Months.

An opponent like Errani or Medina Garrigues in 1st Round will be nice.

Only 30 players that Chak could beat out of a draw of 128? :eek: It's pretty obvious that I'm a lot more optimistic than you are about her chances. I'm feeling quite upbeat about the way that she is playing at the moment considering the injury layoff. I think that she has done a great job of pulling it all back together again. My biggest concern still lies with her fitness. If she isn't 100% fit, I'm worried that is where things will unravel.

i understand what Sammy is saying here. based on ability, Anna is equal to or better than at least 80% of the draw, but as of right now, her abilities and her mind are nowhere near their best. I love Anna, but she has had plenty of recent struggles in closing out average to below-average opponents (Kerber, Groth, Riske, etc.) and has gone on to lose matches because of this. Right now i think that the perfect draw at Wimbledon for our Chak would be either A) someone that she has loads of confidence against, such as AMG (or even JJ and Petrova - even when majorly struggling last year she pulled out big wins against them) or B) someone just appalling on grass - like Errani, Petkovic again, or the like. it also would help if she draws someone who is known to throw in the towel when things start going south, as that wouldn't allow for Anna to feel nervous when closing, as her opponent would no longer care to fight.

I fully understand why you all feel the way that you do. It's just that I've got a totally different perspective on her match results since the injury. In my opinion, she's done quite well for herself considering the practice time that she would have missed out on.

call me crazy but may be what Anna needs in a really difficult oponent, if she beats some very good player! her confident, her major problem now, will just go to the roof!! tennis experts always say that tennis players in slumps like Anna always need a match that make things turn around! but i hope for some easy first round so she can win it! :)

Well it's a good and bad draw. Petkovic is a winnable first round and then she's on a show court with Serena.

Chakvenus
Jun 18th, 2010, 08:46 PM
i would have been thrilled with Petkovic had the draw come out a few days ago, but Andrea is now in the s'Hertogenbosch final - she'll obviously be pretty confident.
still though, i think Anna can win if she plays smart and to her ability.

that is such a good win for anna. the grass has been great to her shes now 4-2 on the grass this year, which is far better than her results for the rest of this year.

didn't get broken at all in the 3rd set.

should put her close to the top 100 again if not in it.

Some statistics from the match: Chak :bounce::bounce::drool: Petkobic :(:confused:

1st Serve %... 60 of 87 = 69 %... 60 of 98 = 61 %
Aces... 3... 11
Winning% on 1st Serve...43 of 60 = 72 %... 44 of 60 = 73 %
Winners (Incl Service)... 28... 41
Break Point Conversions...3 of 7 = 43 %... 2 of 6 = 33 %
Net Approaches... 10 of 14 = 71 %... 10 of 14 = 71 %

Its good that Anna is serving so well and so competitive against a big opponent like Andrea, who sent down 11 aces and was coming off such a good week.

Hopefully this win will help to boost the confidence of her fans just as much as it should Anna's. Yes, Anna has taken her fair share of lumps over the last few years, but she's tougher than she looks. She gets knocked down; she gets back up every single time. You've got to give her credit for that. :worship:

On a slightly different note, why do you all continue to follow Anna's matches on live scores? I know that it seems like a good idea when there's no TV coverage or live stream, but it is also guaranteed to take years off of your life... I've found that there's a much happier medium in checking the score every 30 mins or so. A word to the wise. :)

Well, Serena is up next. Hopefully Anna can ignore all of the hype, so that she can focus on doing her own thing out there. But until then... Go Chakyrenka! :lol:

Great to see Anna. She really looks fantastic. Needs a good coach to help her because she is hitting the ball well again.

I agree that she was timing the ball quite nicely today. It was hard to see underneath all that amazing precision power hitting from Serena, but whenever Anna had time she hit some lovely shots, some beautiful up the line winners.

Serena played as if this was a major final. No doubt she is getting herself ready for the match up with Masha S. I'm so pleased Anna did win one game at least. I'm sure she would have burst into tears otherwise. She was able to smile and tell Serena that she was too good today. She was able to achieve something.

Only the truly elite, Venus and Justine, perhaps an on form Sharapova or Kim, would have had any chance at all today. I wish Serena could have played this kind of match against someone instead though. Serena, after doing this to Anna, please don't suddenly lose form.

Anna's rueful smile when she won a game was lovely. And I'll tell you what, Serena played well enough that this won't dent Anna's confidence too much. Anna knows that no one who isn't a multiple slam winner would have had any chance today. So I'm still hoping for good things in the upcoming hardcourt season.

Anna looked so beautiful as well. Really.

Everybody is talking about her serve. Its actually improving. She has been serving better lately. The mechanics are good, but she could do with coaching and positive advice.

Yes, I think her serving wasn't really that bad at all. Just that Serena's return was very on. Some girls with bigger serves might have been able to still find a way to hold, but it was hard for Anna. I think Anna's game showed very promising glimpses. I hope Anna can see those glimpses and that she follows them to find her A game.

The good news is that Anna won a round here and picked up points. Her ranking will be around #102, up 16 places.

Nice to know. That's the good thing about having no points to defend I suppose. She needs to stay in a zone where she can continue to play slam main draws.

i hope someone got that smile after she won her game, so beautiful.

i think anna needs to look on the last few weeks positively. she has won 3 matches on the grass against top 100 players. she needs to keep working and fighting, it is coming it is just theres nothing she can do about a match with serena at wimbledon. she will be in prague the week after wimbledon, right now shes in qualies, but hopefully with a full withdrawals she will get in the MD.

We can see that her game is quite good and her fitness is great, but what can she do to take it back to her best? There are some girls who have been up and down too. I would like her to get back up around at least Kirilenko's level. There are so many players in the top 50 who dont have Anna's talent. Look at a grinder like Schiavone, she sticks around and one day all the cards fall in place.

Seeing how she played, I am still trying to figure out how she lost to Groth at Aegon.

Poor Anna, but today only 2-3 players in my opinion can battle with Serena on grass.

Anna :sad::hug:

Sad performance from Anna.
So happy Anna got that one game at 6-0 5-0.:awww:
Was nice to see her smile.:)

R2 vs Serena was a very tough draw.
Serena played a nearly perfect match today.
Let`s hope Serena wins Wimbledon now!

Serena said in the interview that when she saw the draw she was "omg what a tough draw, facing Anna Chakvetadze so early!". She said because Anna is a former Top 10 player so she knew she had to be focused from the first until the last point. She knows what Anna is capable of.
Nice words from Serena about Anna and a nice handshake.
