compared to Ana's FH its hard to have a weapon, when you're on the backfoot.

Am I the only one finding this match a bore? Neither play seem to have much weapoon. If Vee gets through Ana should be no trouble to her.

Venus can be too erratic at imes. If ana keeps her head together...i can only see the other way around

yeah i was thinking this too. She's really neutral. A lot like the other upandcoming europeangirls,good movement,decent backhand, loopy forehand. Her serve could get better then average though if she gets a little older. Maybe that's how she can make a difference.

She needs to stop hogging the baseline .

I disagree, I think Ana is looking the best she ever has. If Venus doesn't pick up her level, she actually could be in trouble.

0 winners in a set :help:

I hope she's usually less passive.

Yea, I felt like that too. Of course, this is my first time catching a match this week so since it was the first time seeing this surface, I figured it was just playing slow.

0 clean winner in 1st set. 0 even anything like a winner.

A great backhand winner :hearts:

yeah, that one was a beauty. Lets hope she can make more of those in this set.

Yeah, she changed her tactics I think. She understood that Ana's UE won't come. She is playing with more intensity now.

Serenidad.

Good drop volley. I still think her forehand has way too much air on it. The swing is too loopy as well.

Natash.
Jan 21st, 2008, 01:01 AM
Great defense as well. :)

She definately has a brain. Knows what she did wrong and is trying to rectify it. I like.

If Venus loses, she will have to be playing her worst tennis played for quite a while. Ana has no weapon. I don't know if she is tired but I don't think she is that great a player, regardless of her rank.

yeah... if ana gets through this match she needs to get a new game plan... Shes having trouble with this girl who doesnt hit nearly as hard and penetrating as VEnus...

No, its not the surface, there has been some great matches over the week. Its the two players playing, although it has improved a bit.

This was the second time I've seen her.The first one was the exhibition against Hingis.She was so much more aggressive then.

She's now playing better in the 2nd set,yet it's compared to the horrible 1st set. :tape: So far I still find this match boring. :shrug: Hopefully we'll see more from both players.

You have got to be joking. If this is Ana's best, then I am glad I haven't seen any of her earlier matches.

Wozniacki is looking much better. I wonder if she can pull an upset here?

With the way ivanovic is playing right now she might:o Really, ana is sucking so bad right now.

Nice to see a young player shrug off a tough first set and make adjustments :)

Ana has definitely lost her focus though...her serve has just left her suddenly.

Jakeev

Caroline's game definitely isn't as big as Ana's but she moves better and is probably fitter than any player her age.
That being said though, she does need a tad more upper body strength but her great movement allows her to keep the ball penatrative and deep in the court. Reminds me a lot of Jelena Jakovic if you wanna compare her to anybody.

I'm actually torn as to which one to root for now. After Venus , I like Ana :eek: Caroline and Vee played dubs together, so I assume they get along :hearts:

Venus thinks very highly of Caroline's game :hearts:

I like what I saw from her. A little more experience and building up her upper body will take her very far.
