Zap energy out of crowds.
I started to notice this ability during FED CUP/US Open Series.
At first I thought it was the American crowd not taken a liking to her but as time has gone on I've noticed it's her.
She has no on-court personality and her gamestyle lulls you into this place you really don't want to be while watching tennis.
There's no showmanship.
It's kinda like the music in Super Mario at stages, when you go happen to be in water.

It's like that.
Is it a plus against this crowd in Israel or even then is it still a negative?
Discuss.

I like Anna a lot, but I can definitely see your point of view and agree. She does get emotional on court, but her game itself is very calm and fluid. It should work to her advantage in Israel because it is her natural working environment.

LOL, after seeing what she just did, there's no way she has no personality on court.

this may be the first time ive rooted for chaky. i loved how she handled the crowd. it definitely takes some mental strength to come from a double break down with a hostile crowd.

That was the funniest thing I've seen on a tennis court in ages.

Chakvetadze, who looks so demure, like butter wouldn't melt in her mouth, just stood there, pumping both fists and ROARING directly AT the crowd, as if to say "COME ON, boo me some more you assholes cos I'm gonna WIN"

It was hysterical.

I would have loved to see that. I almost can't imagine quiet Chakvedatze doing something like that.

Anna, the ferocious little kitten, took on the Israeli crowd single-handed and shut them up!!!

One shot showed Pova enthusiastically and energetically cheering her on!!!

It was great drama: AChak giving multipe two handed exagerated fist pumps while snarling at the crowd!

It was so hilarious :haha: The only time I remember Anna getting this loud was against Safina at the Kremlin Cup last year. Safina had one of her obnoxious "come on allez vamos yeeshta etc etc" phases where she virtually screams her lungs out after most of the points. So Chakve just did the same for a while. She lost though to Safina there though, didnt play well enough :)

I reckon "Little Chak" has her own fun on-court personality, that's just waitin to burst out. :D

First noticed it with her hilarious fist-pump/cursin' routine to the boisterous Sania Mirza supporters in some final last season.

Wait till she gets a bit older and more experienced. :devil: I like her.

She looks fierce in those pictures, maybe she should be bringing more of that attitude to some of her regular tour matches
