she is in bar far the weakest section of the draw, anna in any kind of form should make the semis. these days who knows though, lets hope she beats sara like in portoroz

Sara isn't easy at all.60% Chak is really enough to beat her but i doubt that she will give 60% of her form!
Anyway,one thing Anna should keeps in her mind: Pushing isn't your business.:tape:

later, 1st MD match is not before 1am uk time. chak is the next match so from 2.30am till 3.30am she should get on court.

bet 365 will have an awesome stream though

i'm not an hater of sara, but a fan neither....but this loss is a shame, Sara isn't that good on HC and surely Anna is from another league

Sort of glad I didn't stay up to watch this. Can anyone please summarise for me how Anna is playing and what's not working?

I think we all need to hope now for a kind AO draw. If she can just win one round there it will be some good points in the bag.

Well she started the match on fire - hitting at least 3 consecutive winners to break Errani from the off, and actually backed that up with a hold to love herself. From there, however, the games would get decently close (like 30-30) and Anna would make a foolish error and Errani would end up taking the game usually - Anna led 4-2 in the first, but Errani got it to 4-5 and had some set points. Anna bravely fought them off and the set ended with a close tie-breaker (that TB though ended on a long, basically pushing-point from both players with a weird low ball that landed right at Anna's feet and she didn't even get. She walked back to her chair at like -5 miles an hour :lol: )
The second set was just an increase to the errors of the first, Errani breaking immediately and Anna showing some occasional fighting spirit.
