Rnk/Seed Year Event Surface Rnd Winner Score Rnk/Seed
56/-- 2000 STRASBOURG CLAY (O) R16 A. SMASHNOVA 6-4 6-2 57/--
50/5 2000 SHANGHAI HARD (I) Q T. TANASUGARN 6-3 6-2 34/3
69/-- 2002 CANBERRA HARD (O) F A. SMASHNOVA 7-5 7-6(2) 30/1

she should win it...
as for tzipi - she did great against henin that time, and i think she has a thing for bog matches.
i'd like to see the game anyway.
good luck to them both.

Anna won 6-2 6-2 :) didn't expect that.
vs. Venus now :|

Tzipi's match was live in eurosport.. she played well. Some shots were just unlucky wide and the serve was off.. still nice perfomance for tzipi. Myskina was bad in the first but great in the second.

Jan 20th, 2005, 06:55 AM
vs. Venus now :|

Oh dear...do I want to know the numerical odds for that one!
Still its been a great run:D

Anna :kiss:

Tzipi done well, and got to a very good spot. It wasnt the worst ive seen by any means, her game is good overall.

Anna played another earned herself another pink floyd game - she surely is "the wall".
it won't be enough versus venus, of course.
but it's nice to see that she got to the 3rd round.
if she can reach the 3rd round all year, and maybe a surprise 4rd in roland garros, i'm sure she'll be pleased.
not much chance against elder williams.
but i'd like to see her try and cope with it.

Anna lost 3-6 0-6
Anyone saw in Eurosport? How was the match?

Smashnova (ISR) Williams (USA)
1st Serve % 24 of 38 = 63 % 34 of 52 = 65 %
Aces 0 3
Double Faults 3 1
Unforced Errors 17 26
Winning % on 1st Serve 10 of 24 = 42 % 25 of 34 = 74 %
Winning % on 2nd Serve 6 of 14 = 43 % 8 of 18 = 44 %
Winners (Including Service) 3 24
Receiving Points Won 19 of 52 = 37 % 22 of 38 = 58 %
Break Point Conversions 1 of 3 = 33 % 5 of 9 = 56 %
Net Approaches 1 of 3 = 33 % 19 of 25 = 76 %
Total Points Won 35 55
Fastest Serve
159 km/h 191 km/h
Average 1st Serve Speed
144 km/h 167 km/h
Average 2nd Serve Speed
138 km/h 133 km/h

17 UE is too much for her. Anna of 2002 was more consistant.
Besides, 3 net approaches is not enough, she should have gone more to the net. But I think she is improving from last year.

Overall great slam for Anna :bounce: :)

Anna :sad:, I'm actually quite surprised she went to the net at all with her style of play and her opponent today.

Jan 22nd, 2005, 07:02 PM
She played well considering who she was up against.
Where is she off to next?

Jan 22nd, 2005, 07:04 PM
I saw the match..Anna led 2-0..and then she got to 3-3 and then lost every game after that..in the begining Venus was playing the game most players do against Anna and try to go for everything strong and miss it and then she finally go the play down and came to net(not that much) but Venus played a very nice match..Anna as well..
