lets hope for a good draw. again like budapest it has a weak field but there are 2 or 3 very good clay court players chak needs to avoid (alex being one of them again).

come on draw gods give chak a nice draw!

Jul 9th, 2010, 08:13 PM
I want her to draw Alex again but win this time!

Jul 9th, 2010, 09:02 PM
oooooooh phew!!
i checked the qualy draw because i wasn't sure if she had made the main draw and she wasn't in it. i was about to cry in fear of another injury hahaha.
well another good draw would be amazing. koryttseva again, maybe???

Good luck in Prague Anna! :bounce:

players in the MD -

Main Draw:

1 Šafářová, Lucie CZE 25 MD
2 Dulgheru, Alexandra ROM 32 MD
3 Bacsinszky, Timea SUI 40 MD
4 Medina Garrigues, Anabel ESP 43 MD
5 Dulko, Gisela ARG 45 MD
6 Razzano, Virginie FRA 46 MD
7 Szavay, Agnes HUN 47 MD
8 Rybáriková, Magdalena SVK 51 MD
9 Hercog, Polona SLO 52 MD
10 Benešová, Iveta CZE 54 MD
11 Garbin, Tathiana ITA 56 MD
12 Sevastova, Anastasija LAT 57 MD
13 Schnyder, Patty SUI 61 MD
14 Záhlavová Strýcová, Barbora CZE 73 MD
15 Cornet, Alize FRA 74 MD
16 Voegele, Stefanie SUI 76 MD
17 Zakopalova, Klara CZE 79 MD
18 Zahlavova, Sandra CZE 80 MD
19 Malek, Tatjana GER 85 MD
20 Hradecká, Lucie CZE 103 MD
21 Chakvetadze, Anna RUS 118 MD
22 Tatishvili, Anna GEO 146 MD

Dulgheru looks to me to be the most dangerous player in the draw. Bacsinszky, szavay and razzano look like the nicest seeds to face in round 1 or 2, Tatishvili and malek looks great round 1 opponents.

Rybarikova is not good in clay. Medina Garrigues is Anna's bitch. Hope she can draw her.

Jul 10th, 2010, 12:44 AM
Hopefully on a streamed court :drool:

That's a good draw. :D BZS is one of the weaker seeds plus a Q to start with is not bad either. :D

potentially a great draw, but i've seen chak have these sort of draws before.

lets hope it is one of the weaker qualifiers.

Dont know about Anna, but Pink Princess is tearing through her draw :haha:

Jul 10th, 2010, 08:09 PM
yay a qualifier is potentially great!!
just don't get the Prague version of Ondraskova-Budapest this year...

Jul 10th, 2010, 08:34 PM
Good draw.Hopefuly she can hit a new level here.
GL Princess.

Good Luck Anna! :bounce:

Jul 11th, 2010, 08:54 AM
i hope she enters doubles to, the doubles MD should be released today

Jul 11th, 2010, 01:38 PM
when will her qualifier be determined?

King Halep
Jul 11th, 2010, 02:00 PM
Is it my imagination or does Anna seem to keep drawing the really in-form players.

Jul 11th, 2010, 05:39 PM
Not playing doubles.

Jul 11th, 2010, 11:00 PM
when will her qualifier be determined?

Final qualy matches are to be played Monday morning.

Jul 12th, 2010, 12:56 AM
^ thanks Wintermute!

Jul 12th, 2010, 09:49 AM
well i just hope she doesn't get pervak, she is by far the best qualifier and looks to be in some form from her scores. lets pray for one of the other 3.

qualifiers are always bad to face as R1...let's hope for a great run here :hug:

Jul 12th, 2010, 10:06 AM
yeah but apart from pervak who is 104 and in some good form, the other qualifiers are outside the top 190 in the world.

Pervak shouldn't be a problem normally. I saw her match against Maria in RG and I wasn't impressed really. She has absolutely NO serve, she's a lefty, her groundies are okay/good as she hits a decent amount of winners in a match, her UE count is usually high though. Plus didn't Anna play dubs with her in Pattaya? :scratch: She should know her game well, so I'm not too scared if she draws Pervak.

Jul 12th, 2010, 11:08 AM
let's see what will happen :unsure:

Jul 12th, 2010, 11:25 AM
She will face one of them:
Liana Ungur, Ksenia Pervak, Catalina Castano, Mervana Jugic-Salkic.

Jugik-Salkic is the better option to face IMO.

Jul 12th, 2010, 12:03 PM
urghhhh i wanna know who she draws already

Jul 12th, 2010, 04:51 PM
she got Pervak in 1r

its 2nd on CC tomorrow
so livestream

good luck Anna

Jul 12th, 2010, 04:58 PM
happy we will get to see her on livestream, but annoyed she got pervak. i think pervak is dangerous.

Jul 12th, 2010, 05:01 PM

Jul 12th, 2010, 05:06 PM
theres only 3 ranking places between them

Jul 12th, 2010, 05:46 PM
How typical Anna drew the only seeded player to get through qualies. Drawing a qualifier is not always a good thing. Pervak's already won three matches, the last two being particularly straightforward. She's also just won a $25k in Poland on clay. Anna needs to come out of the blocks strong.

She has to be tired and Anna has a lot of stamina these days. :drool:

Jul 12th, 2010, 06:26 PM
hmmm after reading you guy's posts, i'm not sure WHAT to feel toward her R1 match with Pervak. Anna definitely should be the favorite, and i just hope she comes out strong like she did against Koryttseva last week.

Jul 12th, 2010, 06:41 PM
maybe it is because im too negative but i really wouldn't be surprised if chak lost to pervak.

Jul 12th, 2010, 08:29 PM
i've never seen the other girl play but i just hope Anna beats her!

Jul 12th, 2010, 09:53 PM
They know each other well, they played doubles together in Pattaya

Jul 13th, 2010, 03:51 AM
Good luck Anna! I looked Pervak up on youtube and it seems she's a lefty.

Jul 13th, 2010, 10:46 AM
Good luck Anna.

Wow, I had a bad feeling about this draw when I saw it. But that's pretty awful considering things looked a bit better last week. One to forget.

Jul 13th, 2010, 08:12 PM
this is a very bad loss! did she play poorly? or the other girl actually played well?

Jul 14th, 2010, 01:18 AM
disappointing. She was playing nothing like hoer she did against Dulgheru in Budapest. She was trying to hit through Pervak way too much & missing way too much. To Pervak's credit, she was hitting the ball very consistently today.
