I didn't know where else to put this, so here goes.

I just saw the entry list for the 100K tournament in Bronx and Anna is entered :bolt: she has really committed to playing smaller events :yeah: this is the same week as New Haven (not sure if she is entered :scratch:) but if she does indeed play here rather than New Haven, where she is a former champion, it would a big surprise IMO! Let's just hope she can win the title!!!

In 2004 Anna play here and then wins in US Open against Schett and then Myskina in 2nd Round, maybe she can repeat this.

mmmm she didn't play any ITF tournament while she was slumping badly, why is she playing one now that she's getting her game back? well.. i hope she wins! :) i wish she'd play New Haven instead, tho

The entry list for this tournament is epic.

Anna can be only in Q in New Haven I think, so she will play only main draw matches in Bronx, that is also in NY and so probably she stay in the same hotel for Bronx and US Open.

well yes, Smokovec! may be playing quialies in New Haven might not be a good idea because if she has a good run she'll have like 6 or 7 straight matches before the US open and she might be too tired to do well there!

That might have something to do with it. She always says she likes being in NY.

That shows how far down she had fallen, because she was in NH final in 2008.
At least she is onthe way back. Wins this and she is top 50 in 2010 points, probably.
Then needs a good early draw in NY

smokovec
Aug 10th, 2010, 05:55 PM
After US Open Anna has no points to defend so if she can do well in Moscow for example and in Asian Tournaments she can finish the Year in Top 30/40, I think this is a reasonable goal.

King Halep
Aug 10th, 2010, 06:02 PM
I said I it would be unbelievable if she could get into the top 40 this year and it looks likely now. She is getting into form at the right time for the USO and its a place where she could do really well. I wonder if having those injuries gave her the time off she needed to get her focus back.

mmm don't like the idea of playing in ITF.but i don't mind that anyway.
good luck to our lovely princess.

The title of this makes it sound like Anna got lost in NY and needs to be rescued. :sobbing:

sammy01
Aug 12th, 2010, 01:22 PM
it is a smart move, anna can hopefully get some good match practice in new york with this tournament. plus it is like 200 points for winning this, she has 110 points to defend from her new haven qtr final last year, she has a much better chance of making the final at bronx to defend those points than coming through qualies and through to the qtrs in new haven to defend them.

goldenlox
Aug 12th, 2010, 01:22 PM
I would prefer she was in Montreal qualies, but this gives her a few more matches before USO

sammy01
Aug 17th, 2010, 02:22 PM
thats the most important thing, her us open draw. with a good draw a 3rd or 4th round is very doable, with the wrong draw she wont get past round 1

i hope they won't drop her name next these players : Kim - Serena - Venus - Sam - Janko - Masha.
i don't care about the rest of top players.Anna can handle them if she plays well.

Daszmarelli

Anna has a good record against JJ and Sam.

I hope she won't face Pennetta, Serena, Masha, Kim, Vika and Kuzzy

indeed those are the players to avoid....i would add Caro and Pavlyuchenkova (as R1)

Pennetta! you can't be serious?

why not? Flavia is one of the girl who's showing the best tennis this summer and she comes from 2 QF at the USO in a row...plus...look at the H2H

Tezuka.
Aug 17th, 2010, 10:24 PM
Yes, she has a good record but i really don't count on it that much.it's just a record.

The h2h?! who cares anyway.you know, flavia is not natural hardcourter unlike Anna.but she is a good player on hard but not that good.Chak can hurt anyone on hardcourts even Serena Slam.Plus she beat nadia and JJ in her worset days so why she wouldn't beat a good claycourter like falvia on hardcourts!

i just don't see her as a serious threat for Anna.that's all.

Daszmarelli
Aug 17th, 2010, 11:05 PM
Pennetta has changed a lot her game, she hits more flat now, She has a good service and hits hard. Yeah, she's dangerous for me.

I think Anna can beat Caro, but the danish has a LOT points to defend, I think she'll fight hard for those points.

Francy, Sam, Safarova, Nadia are some of seededs who aren't in good shape at moment. Anna must take an advantage.

God bless her draw! :angel:

I also don't wanna she playing against Dinara, Maria, Pervak, Pavlyuchenkova and Vera who are also my favourite players. Plus Maria and Vera are dangers.

I'm impressed with how Chakky has dealt with her dramatic decline and is working her way up in modest tournaments to get back to the top. I hope the decision to play here pays off as she seems to have done well at New Haven before. There seems to be some reasonable competition here not far off being a MM anyway so won't be a breeze. Win it though Anna! :rocker2:

Hi!
It looks like Anna won't play Bronx, but USO.
Jessie has posted 3 photos on her wall in Facebook about 4 hours ago. The album is titled "US Open 2010. 8-21-10."

Bronx is about 10 Km from US Open courts (looking to a map), so I think players can training on these courts the weeks before Tournament starts and adapt to US Open surface, then playing matches of this ITF in Bronx.

sammy01
Aug 22nd, 2010, 01:09 PM
she may well be training at the us open, not at bronx because the us open has better facilities. it is very close to the bronx tournament so why not take advantage of the better courts and facilities and still play bronx.

King Halep

Still no OOP? I've seen smaller ITFs that have more info on their website than this. Pretty poor showing considering the quality of players they've got and the level of interest.

It's so cool that Anna is playing doubles with Stefanie Vögele. I discovered that they were friends when I saw them chatting and leaving together at Birmingham (http://www.tennisforum.com/showthread.php?t=412092). Henceforth, this partnership shall be known as Chakvele. :hearts:

Lucie Šafářová won on Monday, so now I'm just an Anna-win away from a mouth-watering second-round match! :drool:

Vespertine69

Bit worrying that she lost the tiebreaker, but great way to rebound from that disappointment. She has a good shot against Safarova... I think serve will be the deciding factor... Anna's return game is more dangerous than Safarova's, I think, but Lucie can have some pretty fine serving days which could spell trouble if Anna's not bringing it on her own service games.

hmmmmmmmmm is this a +H 100k?

i thought that means they provide hotels to players and thus award more points than a normal 100k :confused:

Saw your girl Anna, today at Bronx Open, vs Safarova. Got some pics of her and an autograph. She looks quite slim and fit, but had her left ankle taped. I asked her about it after the match, and she said it wasn't too serious. Just support for a sore ankle. She's awfully sweet and easy to talk to, but during the match she was fussing and talking to herself, pretty much the whole time. She's not at 100% confidence. needs to believe in her shots. She served for the match at 5/4 and hit 2 aces...then a doublefault, but the small crowd cheered her on. She said she's looking forward to doing well at the Open. I wished her the best of luck.
