well I just saw summer commitments and yet again a prima donna Ana is taking the whole summer season off. Mind you it could be said that she took the first half of the year off too.

This despite the fact she is in a slump with her ranking falling , in horrible shape and form . I have never seen a player who is less ambitious and more stubborn and who is willing to waste their talent. Just a complete ball of frustration right now :fiery: :fiery: :fiery:

Are you saying she has done well and as expected this year? Is she better or worse than last year?

it's definitely tough time for her and she needs to settle down. of couse I'd like to see her getting into RG Semis as Nicole or winning titles... but hey life is not sweet all the time... Im sure she has plenty of great moments to offer to her honest fans :)

And you call your self a fan? She is better without "fans" like you. Either you support a player, or not.

On the other side, you should get some informations about Ana first, and then start a thread like this.

Did she ever say she will take the whole summer season of? I happen to do some things for her officiall web site, and I didn't hear such a thing. Maybe you are her manager, but the rest of us on this board are noa aware of that? Or you are actually Ana, who is taking a season of just because of dedicating to wtaworld and starting threads like this?

Cut Ana some slack, she's doing well for herself and she's only 18.

Yeah she may not have achieved as much as Sharapova and Vaidisova but she's doing well in comparison to the other teenagers.

Then you have seen how great groundstrokes and serve she has? I mean, I know she doesn't move very well, and she can improve in many waya, but she does have great potential. To bad it is still on the "has great potential" stadium, she is 18 years old, but I really think we are yet to see her and her game....

She is good she is very powrful the only thing now is that she is taking time off so what????? maybe she just doesn't want to spend the whole summer in the USA maybe she just don't wanna play or she is tired or something I don't see any problem with that and that doesn't mean that she will play bad after this :confused: .

She's very good, but she needs to be less diva-ish and lose some weight.

azdaja
Jun 11th, 2006, 06:33 PM
ana had an ambitious schedule for the first half of the year. i still haven't seen any information about her schedule for the time after wimbledon, so i think it's too early to complain.

Where did you get the impression she acts like diva? I watch her every matc for a long time, and I really didn't see that anytime.

Nicole Vaidisova is already streets ahead of Ana in terms of promise and current ability.

lol @ the idea of ana being diva-ish. i mean, if you don't like a player, fair enough, but you don't need to invent stuff to hate her, do you?

Dexter

She is not Diva I have never seen that atitude in her . :mad:
Her serve is great and her groudstrokes as well. :)
And yeah perhaps she needs to loose a little of weigth. :)

She is 18 and she only will get better. she has potential and she will prove it.

GO ANA :)

I love Ana's game. When i saw some of her matches, i was like damn, who will def her easily.
then :retard:
I hope she'll do big things, i would love to & she's able. Let's hope for her. But i do understand why ezekiel, as a big fan, can be upset.

Good luck Ana.

The thing that worries me the most is that she actually might NOT be acting like a prima donna. Maybe there's something wrong physically or personally, and that's what would be the worst thing... :hug:

She can take 6 months off if she wants to learn how to be professional and competitive .
There is no point showing out of shape to a random tournament once a month only to be defeated by any decent player. She needs a complete overhaul of her mindset

Maybe then she will learn that the only thing anybody knows her is tennis and she can be just as easily forgotten like many others have if she doesn't keep it up. As a matter of fact only die hard fans even care for her anymore because she hasn't shown anything but pathetic results this year , way below her potential

And you are right , you have to work to make success, it doesn't come if you wait for it. And please don't imply you are honest and someone else is dishonest, challenge my points please, don't attack my credibility just because you may not like to talk about it

Well now I really understand your point I think you are angry at her 'cos you know what she is able to do and it frustates you that you don't see any diference in her you know she can get better but you don't see her trying hard enough . am I correct :confused:

To all the people who commented my diva comment:

I'm speaking because I heard that she's always nice to the fans but to the friends and other players she acts somewhat like a diva. And no, sorry, I won't tell my source.

Or you are actually Ana, who is taking a season of just because of dedicating to wtaworld and starting threads like this?

Yeah I am a fan and I only care about her tennis. Everything else comes afterwards and as a fan I've been disappointed time and again as she has played way below her potential . I support a player and in a sense I support her when I criticise her as well. Hopefully you can understand that .

As far as Ana, you can go see commitments in tournaments pages, her name is nowhere to be found in tournaments after wimbledon. Can you confirm otherwise?
She did that last year where she missed the whole summer season and came to USO out of shape and apparently injured . Considering how this year went so far where she had no results to speak of , it's not looking promising at all. She said she wants to be top ten but she is not close to that right now . She needs to be told that she has to play full schedule and get commited to the game for that.

Her fitness and desire is a big question mark . She will only get in shape when she starts playing and that includes playing lower tier tournaments . Other players like Vaidisova are no more talented than her but even with restrictions they play smart schedule and progress accordingly and are in great shape and have results to show for that. With all of her restricted schedule and I am going to take it my way , what has Ana got to show for it?
I am afraid not much.

Yeah and plus Ana is a seeded player she can get in any tournament :) .

Look Dementieva wasn0't supossed to play any tournament sice Miami until RG and she played in like 4???

I'm sure Ana will play before the USO.

Gosh, yet another stupid thread and comments from ezekiel! Ana is working really hard to prepare herself for every tournament she plays. You actually don't know her schedule and still try to criticize her !? Ana is only 18 years old, so she can't play 25+ tournaments per year now 'cause her body won't hold up. She decides her schedule with people who pretty much know what is good for her. Maybe this season is not the best one, but it surely can not be described as bad. Anci is trying hard to play her best and I know that she will make great results in the future.

Everyone is omitting a little detail: she'll soon have a new coach, who will of course have a say re. her schedule. (As Ste. Joana basically said, everybody just calm down and wait).

i'm so happy Serbia has two players in top30. Many countries will never get that. What's wrong in being ranked #23, she's 18-there's 10 years more atleast for her to get on top. These days it's not good going up too early. What happened to Martina she took 3 years off, Kimi will retire next year, Dokic blew out, Bedanova as well, cause they wasted their talent to eatly. Ana is doing safe steps and i'd rather see her being ranked 15-25 all her carreer then being no.1 for 2 months and then retire when she's 23!

GO Ana!!!!!!! YOU RULEE!

Ana is a good player and her game is more complete than Maria S or Nicole, whose game can be sum up as 'hit as hard as you can and cross the fingers to have the ball in the court' :D !Ana had a good season last year, and it's a bit hard to confirm this year but it's normal(Sania Mirza or Gael Monfils until RG)...She's young, and i don't see any problem if she doesn't play every weeks!I prefer seeing her improving slowly than being on top and then plummeting because of injury or because she's tired of the game.She has everything to have a good career, she needs to improve physicaly, to develop her muscles (but not too much, lol), her runs, and to organize her game. Mats Wilander said few days ago that in WTA, few players have several levels in their game which allow them to adapt to different types of players, he talked about justine as an example. I think Ana takes part of these 'multi-level players' and that she must work on it.BE patient!Of course, I'm a fan of her, a proud fan and for me she's a star : intelligent, cute, talented and nice!GOOD LUCK ANA! :bounce:
