This match is starting soon on Margaret Court Arena. As somebody has discussed before, both players underachieved last year and this match should be exciting in terms of the difficulty in predicting the outcome.

Can Anna K win her first Grand Slam match since 2001 Aussie Open 4R? Go Anna!:):bounce: :)

Henrieta is really pardon the expression... sucking right
now. She looks out of shape; a bit thicker than usual.

It's your lucky day Anna fans.

Nagyova is in bad form. This is a good draw and Anna will probably (hopefully) keep this going and win a match in a major. That will set up a rematch with Justine!

Yak
Jan 13th, 2003, 12:59 AM
The only thing I'm not happy about is that she seems to be comming back to the ''spin the serve in'' strategy! She has an ok serve so why not use it!

IF Anna can win this match, she'll play against Henin and I expect that to be on TV because It'll probably play on center court...

Considering her weapons taken individually (a Capriati forehand, Venus speed, Hingis touch, awesome volleys) she should have these leads all the time since 1997.

But let's forget about that for a moment. Kick ass Anna!

Anna can win against Henin, everything is possible. But it would be a surprise. Even if Anna plays at her best it's not certain she would win, Henin is a real top player don't forget that. It's not because Henin isn't the most powerfull player she is less dangerous.

I just saw something interesting...Justine won her match with just 10 winners to 31 UE's, while Anna was far better at 16 winners to 12 UE's, so based on today's form, it should be a good match. One thing though was that Justine's average Second serve speed was far ahead of Anna's average First serve speed. That, however, didn't bother Anna when she beat Stevenson last summer...

I watched this match on TV. Anna played very well and played aggressively throughout the match. I was surprised by Henrieta, however. From the 1st point, she really seemed to have no gameplan. She missed balls by lengthy margins and really failed to change anything when her game plan of staying back and rallying didn't yield results. She appears a shadow odf the player who pushed Capriati to 7-5 in the 3rd two years ago at this event. She didn't even seem that bothered by the loss, maybe the fact that the other slovak girls have overshadowed her has led to Henrieta's unfortunate decline.
