Ana Ivanovic ruled the Canadian Open in 2006 ... although it is played in a different city, different stadium in 2007, she will feel comfortable and full of confidence when she walks out there on to Centre Court as the defending champ ... she is coming off of a win at Tier II Los Angeles

the Challenger, Zi Yan, has a Tier III title to her credit as well as GS doubles titles at Wimbledon and AO ... yet with her Alternate status in the qualifying draw, her smaller stature, lower ranking, she is a HUGE UNDERDOG against the giant Ivanovic ... just imagine, if Jankovic feels like she is playing against a man against Ana, what it must feel like for cute little Zi to play here :hug:

I am not asking for a win here for Zi but I would like a respectable showing :dance: ... Zi needs return Ana's serves well and move Ana from side to side :armed: ... keep it away from the cannon forehand :help:

Plz God let this match be on Wed so I could see it on The Tennis Channel

Zi can play very well. I remember Eurosport commentator saying that it was a lot of expectation for Zi v Amelie's match in Berlin. Zi Yan has an incredible potential. She had a hard situation because when she went down into the rankings, she hardly could play quakys because of the doubles. So her ranking kept going down.

Zi has an amazing double handed FH . Ana is the favourite of course. But I think Zi is a player to watch definitely.

Zi will try her best for sure. She has to play every time at Ana's BH, and she has to move her.

I want Zi to win, and I believe in her.

I'm a big fan of Zi's, so therefore I don't want to say what I think the scoreline will be. :tape:

Get some good experience from it, Zi!

Anybody know if she will be in Quai Draw for USO?

Who are the 13 people who voted for Zi? you must be dreaming! the only way Ana will lose this match will be if she is injured, and she is not!

Hopefully Ana is just having a slow, jet-lagged start to this match. Her serving seems horrible.

Tragic, especially since Ana was defending champion, but she did win last week so you win some you lose some. Lots of time to rest up and be ready for the USO.

Keep laughing, you can not say this win was expected!:help:
But if you look at Ana's career, from time to time she has some emberesing losess, like in Sony Erricson Open this year...

But still, I am happy for Zi, keep it going now:p

Wow! Pretty surprising. I've never seen Ana play, though.

Off to see the scoreline and how the match went......

Who's next for Zi? Congrats!!

P.S. somebody - new member - sent me a rep and asked if I am Asian. No, I'm not. Why do you ask?
