View Full Version : The Official Anna Smashnova Cheering Thread

Dec 19th, 2002, 01:10 AM
well here we are :D - the first grand slam of the year :D

as i dont have the draw as of right now, i cannot give you the usual schpeel and analysis of the draw, so that will have to wait until a later date. but i figured that because of the cheering threads springing up, we should start this :D

so let's all wish anna good luck here :D - of course, this will not be the first one as is DEFENDING her title at auckland :D :D

see you all around :)

you know you guys like the new title ;)

p.s. if anyone tells me her name is wrong, they die ;) :fiery: :p i like smashnova better - it suits her profession ;)

of course i know ;)

(yo) Te Quiero :kiss: (feel free to leave out the "yo" part of it)


(yo) Te Amo

the first is like, "i want you, i love you" and the second is more like "i passionately love you in a romantic kind of way," but they both mean i love you :D

VAMOS ANNA (had to put that in here somewhere) ;)

Jan 12th, 2003, 04:17 AM
as the draw is out, it is time for another of my famous, draw analysises ;) here it is:

(4)Kim Clijsters vs. Samantha Reeves
Petra Mandula vs. Silvija Talaja
Tatiana Poutchek vs. Tina Pisnik
Cristina Torrens Valero vs. (29)Iva Majoli

(19)Amanda Coetzer vs. Barbara Schett
Rossana Neffa-De Los Rios vs. (Q)Jelena Jankovic
Maja Matevzic vs. Casey Dellacqua
Meilen Tu vs. (14)Anna Smashnova

now you'll note two things here - the seeds. the obvious one is kim clijsters who's the best player out there at this time. but before we get there, the suttle one is anna's nemisis, amanda coetzer. though it seems that anna should really win, their simliar styles lead to an ugly match, with the older of the pair usually prevailing each time. but amanda might not make it w/ barbara schett standing in the way. but before that, ull notice that anna is almost given to make the third round. the battle of the 2002 and 2001 auckland champions shouldn't be a very long match - anna shouldn't have too much trouble. next in line is someone we've never heard of, or maja matevzic, who captured her first title on hardcourt in 2002. that match could be more interesting, but a healthy anna (who won two titles on rebound ace in 2002) should be able to take that one home.

after that, we find amanda coetzer or barbara schett. amanda has provided problems for anna in the past. this will be the interesting one here. a not so healthy anna might have trouble with either of these opponents, although she could have some huge sucess given the fact that she seems to like rebound ace.

yalla (come on in hebrew ;) ) anna :D - we're all wishing you well

VAMOS ANNA :bounce: :bounce:

poor maja :sad: - i hope she gets better.

i was watching and it was 4-1* anna-maja, and i flipped to a doubles match, and when i came back, it was gone.

i thought it was anna's injury from auckland and i was really upset :sad: :sad:

but it wasn't - and she's doing very well :D :bounce:

VAMOS ANNA - we all know that you can take it over amanda, so let's prove it to everyone :D YALLA! :D

good luck anna :)

Time for Statistic Man! (whoa - now i feel stupid :o :p)

Anna Smashnova vs. Amanda Coetzer

2R Eastbourne 2000 - (3)A. Cotzer - A. Smashnova 6-2 6-0
2R Los Angeles 2002 - A. Coetzer - (11)A. Smashnova 6-0 6-2
2R US Open 2002 - A. Coetzer - (17)A. Smashnova 6-2 6-4

Amanda Coetzer leads 3:0

ok, so not the best statistics, but clearly she's getting more confident b/c she's getting more games :D (6 in their last meeting as opposed to 2 in each of the ones before it). plus, rebound ace is more like clay, so that should also help her out.


Jan 17th, 2003, 06:53 PM
pffff - we've even got a better cheering thread than the amanda group :fiery:

;) :p

King Aaron
Jan 18th, 2003, 03:26 PM
and Anna lost 6-0, 6-2!! :mad: :fiery:

I was so confident she can get one over Amanda this time. :sad: :sad:

Jan 18th, 2003, 07:14 PM
(19)Amanda Coetzer def. (14)Anna Pistolesi 6-0 6-2 :sad:

well, it was a very good effort and im proud of her for reaching the third round. it was much better than last year's slam record :D we're going in the right direction :D let's hope that she can do well at the french, which is where she should set her hopes as clay is definitely her favorite.

VAMOS ANNA - great job on a great week - good luck in your next tournament :D

congrats amanda :sad:

Jan 18th, 2003, 11:21 PM
