and her only victory came against Myskina during her post-slam slump :tape:
sorry but this Anna Chakvetadze girl ain't nothing special ... she has a decent game but nothing spectacular ... she always looks like she is crying on the court and she has made her rise in the rankings due to defeating Jankovic & Petrova a couple of times during the past year and winning REALLY WEAK tournaments like Guangzhou, Hobart, Cincy and Stanford ... once you put another slam winner on the other side of the net, she folds like a cheap tent

it is much easier for players to get wins over top 10 players than GS champs

Anna C has multiple wins over Jankovic, Dementieva and Petrova but lost easily against Pierce, V Williams, Davenport even though they are not Top 10 at the time

ok this is realy pissing me off chakvetadze is young and improving i like how you left out the fact that she won moscow that had a great field!

lets take dani h for example she is;
1-6 against serena
0-8 against venus
0-9 against clijsters
0-6 against davenport
0-5 against sharapova
0-1 against pierce
0-2 against myskina
in there head 2 heads yet shes top 10 and has been as high as number 5 and has only won 2 titles and lets face it IW is no miami it has a week field year after year!

yet people dont call her lucky or unworthy of her position so leave chakvetadze alone! also can you believe these h2hs as serena is the only player on tour with a winning head 2 head against all the top players does that automaticaly make her the best player and mean shes going to win every tournament no! oh and how many times has kuznetsova beaten a top 10 player in a slam? never outside of the us open 04 so does she deserve to have been number 3 this year?

I don't see why people are jumping all over the threadstarter (apart from post history).
1-20 is indeed very very very shitty. She just hasn't had what it takes when she's struck up against someone else who has broken through at some point in her career. For this reason, she'll never win a major. She's have to beat a few girls who actually believe in themself and have game to do so. Not happening.

After this 1-20 of Chaky or 1-37 of Dani, Ana's 8-17 vs. GS champions is not that bad :eak:. But Chaky must much improve in big matches. This stats is very bad for her if she realy want to reach TOP5 or SF at GS in next two years.

Anna was outside the top 30 and had never won any title less than a year ago. Her forward move is very recent. She won titles beating Jankovic and Petrova in finals. She beat Myskina and Dementieva.
She's getting better and better and she'll start beating these players. Zvonareva beats them and Anna can beat them also.

Na Li was robbed of 2 years from the prime of her career when she "retired" :mad:

don't have anything better to say? thought you were better than that, eggy.

i agree with pierce. anna probably won't win a slam in the near future because of her record against top players.

you can't win a slam without beating at least one top player.

goldenlox
Jul 31st, 2007, 06:57 PM
Her reults are recent. She won 6 titles since after last year's USO.
Jankovic has less than 6 in her career. Ivanovic has 3. Sveta has a USO and Miami, but only 8 titles. Anna is going to pass her soon.

Shvedbarilescu
Jul 31st, 2007, 07:05 PM
Thing about Ana is that she is probably the most consistant player in tennis right now. By that I mean she consistantly beats the players she is expected to beat and loses to the players she is expected to lose to. However, as she improves, and her ranking gets better and better, there are fewer and fewer players she is expected to lose to. Eventually if she continues to make the progress she is making now there will come a point when she is actually expected to beat these Grand Slam winning players and that I suspect is the point when she will start beating such players. It won't happen instantly but I think it will happen.

Sharapova was 0-8 against Grand Slam champions before she won Wimbledon.

Why's that surprising at all? 0-8 isn't 1-20.
Maria was also 17 and was playing only her second year on tour. Additionally, she was struck up against Myskina during the height of her Russian player dominance, and Maria even lost one to Seles in the first tournament she had ever played.

Her reults are recent. She won 6 titles since after last year's USO. Ivanovic has 3.
But dont forget that Ivanovic in whole career played only one WTA tier-IV or tier-V event and she use tier-III tournaments only for training to prepare herself before some big tournament - not like AnnaC to win (AnnaC won so far 4 tier-III and tier-IV). Ivanovic never reach SF of some tier-III (at tier-III she is 10-9, and at tier-I and GS togheter Ana have 71-25!!!). Ana is #5 and Anna is #6 right now, but how you compare in last 12 months Ana's slam final and SF, two tier-I wins (and one final) with Anna's two slam QF, one tier-I and tier-II wins??? Also Ana have more TOP10 wins than any player in 2007 (except Henin) and like we see in this thread AnnaC have big problems with big WTA names.

I never said it was surprising. Just because you haven't beaten people doesn't mean you won't in the future. Chakvetadze is a late developer so most of her losses aren't relevant much like Sharapova's loss to Seles.

faboozadoo15

There's really no comparison, IMO, between Ivanovic and Chakvetadze.
Ivanovic shows up to win the big titles, and Chakvetadze shows up to reach the quarterfinals.

I see your point. But there's really been no sign of a turnaround for Anna yet. Sharapova hadn't been repeatedly denied in majors by stronger willed opponents.

Justine was a late developer too and she was 0-8 against Slam Champions at Anna's age before she broke through in the clay season of 2001. She also won low tier tournaments and fell to the top players at big tournaments. Things can turn around very quickly sometimes.

Obviously right now Anna is not beating the top players or winning the big events. If she's still not doing so this time next year, we can probably assume that she never will but, right now, she's 20, she's still got time to break through.

What big titles does Ivanovic win. Berlin was a joke. Sveta had to beat Justine on the day of the final while Ivanovic didn't have to play a semi. Montreal was a joke too. Anna won a Tier I in her hometown. That's a big title. She beat Petrova Dementieva and Safina. Anna is 6-0 in finals. That sounds like a player who will win big matches in the future. 9-2 vs Jankovic and Petrova.

Yes she won berlin but Chak won Moscow which is equally big. Yes she won Toronto but had a depleted field. Im not diminishing her accomplishments because u only beat the players that are there, but give chakvetadze her credit. She's number 6 in the world and has never lost a final.

No, Ana has also been to a slam final. I don't care how you twist it - a slam final is a slam final. That means she had to beat somebody to get there. Those 4 tourney wins by Anna this year were - let's just say "less than stellar". Ana also did very well - losing to Venus in the semis. Chakvetadze has game but I just don't think she's worthy of the discussion yet. If you think so, then let's make a bet on whether she gets to the US Open semis. I'm willing to wage that she DOESN'T.

Before last summer, Anna had trouble beating players worse than she's beating now. Her improvement curve has been slower than a Sharapova or Ivanovic, but faster than a Jankovic or a Li (who has yet to win a major title of any kind and hasn't won one since 2005). I see more wins over former slam champions in the future for her.

And any discussion that has Jankovic should have Anna. Anna has more titles than Jelena and a winning h2h, and neither has made a slam final.

Why's that surprising at all? 0-8 isn't 1-20.

It`s actually only 0-10 (excluding a retirement) over the last two seasons, Maria, Mo Mo, Justine, Lindsey, and one lose to Hingis. The loses from 2005 and earlier were fully expected as she was ranked in the 30s. Chaky is actually only coming of age this year and the possbilities of becoming a top 3 player and slam winner are real. Judging `04, `05, even `06 results against certain players doesn`t tell us a lot...

Well, I like Chaky's game but I don't think it can stand up to the brute force of a Sharapova, Henin, Williams game...

Her serve can be attacked and she's shown that she can't really raise it on the big occasions. But she's only 20 and she's on the path to the top five, and that should tell you that she's a promising prospect, even if she isn't the hardest hitter on the planet.

Then again, is there room for another crafty player to win a slam? The top ten is dominated by players that absolutely blow others away from the court, except Anna and Momo... but then Momo has the athletic and net capabilities that Anna does not.

We'll wait and see, but unless Chaky can turn it around the slam champs then she's basically got 0 chance of winning a slam herself. But she might, who knows?

I don't understand why they are attacking piercey :hug:

Hello, it's a fucking FACT !!!!!!!!!!! So don't attack him.
Chakvetadze has a good game, but her service is bad. If she hits a 2nd serve, the chance is very high that a top 10, GS champ wins that point

I agree with this thread. Although Anna C has been doing well lately, she has not really proven herself against the top elite players. I still dont consider her a threat against players like Williamses, Sharapova, and Henin.

Q. Then, would you say you are suffering from an inferiority complex faced to Maria Sharapova?
ANNA CHAKVETADZE: Sorry?

Q. An inferiority complex, do you understand that?
ANNA CHAKVETADZE: Complex?

Q. Yes.
ANNA CHAKVETADZE: I don't have complexes, sorry.

But she's the kind of player who has the potential to sneak her way to a big title, like she did in Moscow last year. I wouldn't be surprised if she takes another big title this year, she'll probably win the USOS as well just by being consistent.

I don't think consistency can win you slams. Henin, V and S Williams hit heavier, faster balls than Anna, and Venus is not the most consistent player on tour, but her success at Wimbledon shows that if you can raise it on the big points at the big tournies, you're a real threat.

Give Anna some time people.

LOL ok ok have your fun. She hung in there and deserves this win, but let's wait for her to have a big win like this at a slam before we proclaim her the second coming.

I certainly don't think she is the 2nd coming but yes she looks like a Grand Slam contender to me and I would be surprised if she doesn't win at least one or two such trophies in her career.

I would've liked to see how Anna would've done against Maria if they'd played last night. Not saying she'd have won but it would've looked much better than that fiasco that just finished. Anna should be proud of how she's improved.

Maybe she'll get lucky and play Lindsay in her comeback.

she'll get there, her game obviously takes more time and fine tuning than say...sharapova. i honestly don't think she'll get to number 1, but she will soon take out the big names. she's got too good a game not to.
