Anna and her bad luck with the draws.:(
I bet she she will draw Serena or Venus in the 1st round in Wimbly.:tape:

Anyway, really happy that she is finaly back. Hopefully she is 100% healthy now.
Davai Princess.

^^ She has a good 1st round match but there is easier quarters than hers.
BTW, I have no idea who is L Dominguez Lino. Never seen her before.

Hope she accidentally entered this thinking it was a clay event, then she turns up and gets hay fever and her eyes are so watery she cant see the ball :hearts:

I'm confident for Anna's first round. Indeed it could have been worse.

I actually like the draw until QF! Lino is a clay specialist and Kirilenko is not good on grass! Kimiko could trouble Anna, tho. I really hope she's healthy! C'MON ANNA!!

Ann is back :cheer: Hope she's ready and 100%. Not a bad early draw at all, and a R1 against LDL on grass especially is very kind. Davai :cheer:

Maybe there will be a stream on the official site?: http://www.unicefopen.tv/ I know Bet 365/Unibet will stream it so the possibilities for an alternative stream is quite high. Anyway GL Anna!

Okay so Anna lost 6-4 6-1 but she got through the match. Did anyone get to watch it? If so, how's she looking?

Setsuna.
Jun 12th, 2011, 02:53 PM
^ She looks in good shape but still too much rust. It's normal for sure.

Jun 12th, 2011, 02:55 PM

No, I'm really happy to see her on court again. Doesn't matter if she lost her first match. She will get better i'm sure.

She looked absolutely stunning, but her playing was not up to pair, like this was some kind of practice match. Still happy to see her on court again, hope she stays well and then we'll see.

I watch all the Match and I think Anna don't give 100% today, but she takes this like a on court test to verify the healty.

Obviously she is not totally fit right now, but I think she is ok and can only improve week after week and we all hope that she has passed the critical healty time.

Makes sense that she's taking it slow just to test herself a little bit and get used to playing again. She'll gain confidence from now on. I'm so happy she's back, seems like forever since she last played :crying2:

Anna clearly lacked confidence and rhythm, but there were some good moments, especially in the first set. Her opponent appeared to be just returning the ball so that Anna made a mistake, trusting her rustiness.

The most important is that she felt good through the whole match, so that she can finally focus on the winning part.
Onwards and upwards!!

I didnt see the match, but as long as she is healthy, thats the important thing.
Hopefully gets a good 1st round draw at Wimbledon

If the opponent was a pusher, then that explains how the match went.

Lino just keep getting the ball back. Annoying as hell.
Anna didnt hit the serve and ball as hard. sO THIS WAS A TEST.

5th game was so important...And Ana lost it :sad:

It was a tough test for a rusty player, LDL just kept the ball coming back. Normal rustiness in my opinion. Anna can hopefully begin to show better form in coming tournaments.

I'm so glad to see her back! :bigcry: Best moment of the year as well as Alona's coming back too. :hearts:
I'm not worried by her loss, Alona lost her first 2 matches before eventually winning her 1st match last week. Anna was just being wary today, not overplaying for her 1st match. ;)
