I think this means a return to the top 100 too.

So happy for Anne! Currently projected to be ranked #91 but that obviously depends on what happens for the rest of the tournament.
Really hope she can beat Petkovic.

Europe rocks
Jan 17th, 2011, 12:09 PM
First win in the MD of the Aussie Open :) Going to be tough to defend that Memphis semifinal run but these points will help to cushion the blow a bit when they come off. Fingers crossed she'll stay top 100 and other results don't go against her. A win against Petkovic would be lovely, but it'll be tough and the last time they played it wasn't the most competitive of matches IIRC

I didn't think about that until now :sad: Still, it was a good tournament for Anne and to test Petkovic is a promising sign for her form.

Congrats to Anne who is through to the quarter finals of the $100k ITF in Johannesburg. Two tough matches so far, perhaps tougher than we would have expected but a win is a win. Keep going Anne! One more win should see you back inside top 100!

She is also through to the SF of the doubles tournament so it's a good week for Anne so far. Plays her QF tomorrow morning local time. :bounce:

Y'know, Anne shouldn't have a separate sub-forum. It makes her threads less visible when you go to the "Strawberries and Cream" section, and she doesn't do enough noteworthy to warrant it.

So we actually post a lot less frequently about her wins and losses compared to Bally and Heather, even when there is something to say.

Anyway, pleased to see that she has just squeezed into the main draw at Garros. First round against Vesna Dolonts, another player who is outside the top 100, so there is a sliver of hope for Anne, I guess.

I agree.

People could still maintain a Season and a Media thread if they absolutely wanted to. There are only a few British players, and nobody is likely to get pushed off the first page of threads unless nothing happens for a very long time.

And Laura Robson by the way has 60% more posts in her single thread than the whole Keothavong forum. Works fine.

I love Anne but Im not sure she is going to be around much longer. She hasnt had great results over the US swing (hard court being her favourite surface) and Im not sure she can get back into the top 80. Her results at Shrewsbury were mediocre. She will make a great tennis commentator.

We seem to have quite a few ladies through to quarters this week. Jolly good show.

Into the final against Meusberger. Wouldn't it be swell if she could end the season with back-to-back tournament wins - even if only at Challenger level.

And she does it with a 63 16 62 win.

Two titles in a row and a top 75 finish. Don't think any of us expected this!

:woohoo:

Anne :sobbing: I can't.

I'm so thrilled for her. This is just the most fantastic end to a great Autumn. Well done :wavey:

Have a nice rest now, Anne.

Very pleased for her. Hope she carries some confidence from this into next year.

I think she was playing well in patches before, but doubting herself and losing close matches, so it's great to see her putting it all together and going on a real winning streak.

London 2012... We can but hope.

I was just thinking about Anne and Elena, and how they've both had serious problems, and been late bloomers.

I was trying to remember their ranking history, and failing miserably - I know both have just scraped into the top 50 at different points, but have we had a time before when both have been inside the top 75 simultaneously?
