I don't like how this serve is going, she's leaning too far to her left after she hits it.
None the less, 5-3!

A break here would be nice.

Andreas

This is why Ana will never get back to top 10. She has the mental game of a 12 year old, and she can only blame herself for losing this.

She can still do this (I'll be saying that even after Eva says GSM, Maria Sharapova):tape:

JAS_
May 17th, 2012, 08:22 PM
I will believe it when I see it.
Beating this Pova would be her biggest win since RG.
All the top 10 wins were over somehow slumbering opponents. Dementieva, Kuzzy, Vera... Maybe Azza in Cincy.
This is a level of pressure she can't withstand anymore. It's enough for POva to give her a look and she disintegrates. I bet you she wouldn't be able to win a stare fight with ANY of the girls on tour. I suggest to practice that in free time, it might make her more resilient. :sobbing:
It's sad for me to say it, because I believe she has it in her not to beat all of them but to dominate, but unfortunately her stubbornness is in her way. Maybe in a year or two she will try working with psychologist, just like she has wasted too much time with APDP team and trying to figure it all out by herself. But by then, not only the time will have been wasted but the problem will have grown bigger.

Balltossovic
May 17th, 2012, 08:24 PM

JAS_
May 17th, 2012, 08:30 PM
Well, there are positives, for sure.
At least she stayed there and didn't fold completely.
These last two losses are good losses, considering how in such matches Ana used to do a disappearing act.
She actually needs to go through a few of such losses in order to get tougher. Once she is desensitized to losing, and realizes it's not the end of the world, she might actually relax a bit.
But the problem with her is that if she accumulates too many of them, then she develops some kind of complex.
Ideally she would lose to different players so she gets it our of her system, but not to the detriment to one particular h2h.

(obviously I am talking about the relevant players now)

She's so fucking complicated. One psychologist wouldn't be enough to do the job. She needs a whole team. :sobbing:

Linguae^
May 17th, 2012, 08:35 PM
The only thing I don't like about this match is that she lost her.last service game. That should've not happened, she had to make Sharalova serve it out. I'm sad she always hets terrible draws abd I hope she's lucky for the FO, at least. I still don't get how Sharapova.plays this well week by week, where does that energy come from? I really thought she would play a worse match, like in those first ganes, but she got better and better. Ana should've bot also served diagonally to her, but, still, this is way better than Ana's matches before. I just hole she keeps believing she can be a big champion again, not the one who's always good and then loses to tops. Ana, you are a championship material!

Cajka

Here, I'll start first. Ana you are one hell of a crazy lunatic. :cuckoo:

HowardH
May 17th, 2012, 08:59 PM
Tough. Sharapova is very tough, even when she still had some issues with DFs. Her psychological presence when she "knuckles in" for the big points is substantial. Still, Ana is no longer a slumping player on the verge of dropping out of the wta tour. It's just that as earlier posters said, Ana cannot withstand this level of mental pressure coming from the other side of the net. It was more or less as you would expect for a match between the no. 2 and the no. 15. Too much intensity coming from Masha's end of the court. Not enough resilience on Ana's side to withstand it.

Well, there are positives, for sure.
At least she stayed there and didn't fold completely.
These last two losses are good losses, considering how in such matches Ana used to do a disappearing act.
She actually needs to go through a few of such losses in order to get tougher. Once she is desensitized to losing, and realizes it's not the end of the world, she might actually relax a bit.

She's so fucking complicated. One psychologist wouldn't be enough to do the job. She needs a whole team. :sobbing:

I think that it's an interesting idea that she needs to learn how to handle both losing and winning.

A tennis player needs to learn how to handle difficult and stressful situations. You need to learn that losing and winning are both just as hard. There isn't an easy route anywhere when you play pro tennis. Losing is hard to take of course, but you have to suffer a lot to win as well, you have to push your body and mind to the limit. In general a pro player has to accept suffering one way or another in order to play at this level. There are no easy rides when you have a strong opponent, and Ana needs to understand this.

Personally I can see some positives as people have said. She didn't totally run away from the fight this time, apart from a little in the last game. However she did let herself get too stressed out. Like I said, a tennis player has to accept that she's going into a tough, uncomfortable situation every time she plays a match. Ana actually was doing very well against a player who has been doing very well this year and who has many accomplishments. Sometimes it seems that she panics because it feels so hard, but that's just what it feels like to compete with the best. The only exception is when your game is on fire, but you can't expect that to happen all the time, you have to be able to compete when you're a little off. Struggling is not the end of the world. It's just part of tennis. You would like to win more, but in order to do that you'll have to struggle past people.

The thing is that because of her serve and forehand, she didn't experience this kind of serious battle that many times during her formative years. She has a tendency to crush opponents who aren't strong enough.

Not really sure whether she will be able to rise back to the top (it seems somewhat doubtful but nothing's impossible) but she isn't doing too badly, all things considered.

They are all useful.

Superman would save a danzel in distress every time some Adamasco tries to ruin her world.

Dule would remind her of all situations when her (and my :oh:) Partizan seemed to be screwed, but bounced back and win in last seconds.

Richard would yell: "Get a grip!" And teach her how to be a bulldog and not this cute labrador retriever, that she is now. I love labrador retrievers. :o

The ghost of Agatha and House would solve the mistery of her stolen brain.

Četojević would put a spell on her opponents when Ana has break points, set points, match points...

Nigel would work on her game and try to calm her down.

Those psychologists would try to remove the bad influence of reading Sigmund Freud's crazy researches.

They are all useful.

Superman would save a danzel in distress every time some Adamasco tries to ruin her world.

Please, don't even put Nando and that ...Scott...in the same sentence, let alone word. :mad:

Dule would remind her of all situations when her (and my :oh:) Partizan seemed to be screwed, but bounced back and win in last seconds.

OR...or....she could watch Monica Seles classics once a day?

Richard would yell: "Get a grip!" And teach her how to be a bulldog and not this cute labrador retriever, that she is now. I love labrador retrievers. :o

Ana cannot not look cute. And THEREIN lies the problem. Too much sugary sugar. She isn't comfortable with being a competitive bitch because it is in contradiction with the sweet Ana.
It's ok to be mad, to be fierce, to be not liked by everyone, just get used to that idea. Her beauty is a problem now, she is too cute for her own good.

Develop an inner bitch Ana, nurture it every day. Can you imagine Ana saying what Bartoli said about her not playing in Olympics: "I am keeping quite now, but there will be war after the Olympics"? I can't imagine that in a million years.

Like I said, a tennis player has to accept that she's going into a tough, uncomfortable situation every time she plays a match.



Yeah, the key for her is to develop some tolerance for discomfort. She just has an unbelievably low threshold.
And the worst thing is that she feels discomfort both when she is leading and when she is trailing. NOt to mention that every "stupid" mistake puts her in a ruminating mindset.
Not to mention that she needs to find out why she feels discomfort at the first opportunity when she's ahead. I know why, but she needs to find it out and learn to counteract it.
She really could benefit from cognitive therapy. :sigh:
It's all there for her, she just needs to use it, but I guess she still hasn't ruled out all the other possible causes :rolleyes::(
I mean, it's just so stupid the way she is avoiding it and hoping it will just somehow all just click.
It's like that man who was looking for his watch under a light pole at night, and when asked why he was looking there, is it because he lost it there, he said, "no, it's because this is the only place where there's enough light to see." :weirdo:

She's a former champion and a huge headcase. She's giving us nightmares. There's no way that someone who's not a true fan would still follow her career. Same thing about JJ. I say that I'll stop watching their matches every time they lose, but I know I won't.

Hard to say. Maybe he didn't do anything, I change my opinion about his influence on her career too often.

First, in 2010 she was skipping the tournaments due to some injuries and she supported him during that time. That was suspicious.

2nd Rumor has it that he was seeing his ex while he was dating Ana. It was never confirmed, but Ana dumped him after those rumors.

3rd Rumor has it that Ana fired Scott Byrnes because of Adam's jealousy. It also wasn't confirmed, but she fired Byrnes when she started dating Adam again and she also hired Adam's fitness coach. Her name is Tina Mayo and she has no experience in working with tennis players. And we all know how important Byrnes was for Ana's career.

4th thing. She dumped him again. Ana is love, so there must be something wrong with him. :lol:

5th thing. In the end of last year he was talking about his wishes to get married and have kids soon. Wow, selfish, if you ask me. He thought that it would help him to have better golf results. :scared: Men can make babies when they are 50 and tennis career is short, especially for a female. :help:

Those are my reasons for disliking him, but I admit that I might be totally paranoid. Who knows. But Caro's weird slump makes me even more paranoid.

Sure, if it's really what happened, it's Ana's fault. I mean, look at her schedule, they were doing fine and when Ana decided to play a full schedule (not skipping the tournaments like she did in the second part of 2009 and the first part of 2010 when she dated him), they broke up. I'd like to believe that it was all coincidence, but I can't. But, as I say, even if it was a true, I don't blame her. She's a human being and human beings are weak. I want her just to be happy. :shrug: I hope she is. Tennis is her big passion and it was so obvious that she wasn't herself while she was in a slump. She needs a supportive guy.

Yeah, the key for her is to develop some tolerance for discomfort. She just has an unbelievably low threshold.
And the worst thing is that she feels discomfort both when she is leading and when she is trailing.

You found the exact phrase I was looking for, a tolerance for discomfort. A tennis player needs to go into every match expecting and handling discomfort, win or lose. Winning close matches is uncomfortable too, you just push through the pain. You can feel good afterwards, not during the match.

The only time you feel good during a match is when the match is over before it ends. But that doesn't happen against good opponents, only against weak ones or ones in poor form. They are exceptions, not the rule, but Ana wants all her wins to feel like the ones where she is never in danger of losing. She can do that to lower ranked players, but top players will turn the match into a scrap, a dogfight. She needs to be like Serena, who sometimes blows people off court, but if she can't, she still toughs it out (most of the time).

Was that Kim Sears (Murray's g/f & Nigel's daughter) watching Ana?

I didn't see it, but it's possible, they are sort of friends.

I don't think she is playing too well tbh, but that's ok, she will build some form hopefully.

She looks absolutely stunning even in that hideous dress, I mean, she makes it look good. I can't at just how beautiful she is :hysteric:

You don't think she's playing well off the ground?

With that creepy 1st serve %, she did a great job not to get broken, I must say.

But I'm not going to jinx her, so I must start bitching about her serve.

Still not sure how much we can tell from this, it's not this kind of match that has been a problem for Ana recently. It's the big ones where she isn't there mentally!

I agree with whoever said she is getting a lot of short balls. Though the backhand is looking quite deep. IDK, I'm hardly the best judge, I just don't think she's playing amazingly right now, but I wouldn't expect her to at this stage. I want to see her have a good serving day and a good day off the ground together, in this tournament

She's got herself out of trouble a couple of times with some reaction volleys today. :yeah:

3-0, but against a better returner that game would have been trouble.

Still, onwards Ana :cheer:
