I saw the match between Mirza and Olga Go..stuff. Well, I'm not worried about Ana's match. She will win for sure. Olga has less strength, she's not as fast as Ana, her serve is far poorer and she has no finish shots.. Mirza should have won easily, had she not been injured.

At the same time, it's been a while since Ana last played, we don't know how she'll feel on the court.. :sad:

Olga can hit big off both wings, but she's as consistent as Polish football team (ooops, they actually had nice results last year, but football sucks in general :p). I don't think Ana will have many problems with her, but playing first match after a longer break is never easy. She needs to be focused right from the start. Can't wait to see her again! :drool: Ajde!

Ana is 3-0 up. The wind is playing a havoc out there. It will be about getting the job done today.
Ana has slightly adjusted her service-motions... looks more stable.

Dexter
Feb 20th, 2008, 02:46 PM
Ana is 5-2 up. Saved 3 BPs in the last service game. The wind is simply awful, causing lots of problems for both with serving.

I thought she was going to withdraw .. hopefully she managed to close it.
I love what the french commentator said about Olga's serve for the last points of the match :
"Serving
- a second serve
- hip level
- on the forehand of Ana who..
- .. has nothing to lose now

.. seems not to be the right decision" :lol:

AJDEEE

I hope the injury is not too serious..

Hey i hope it's not a serious ankle injury. Ana only should play torromow if she's 100% certain that playing a match doesn't make the injury worse. There are many more important tournaments to come and Ana is in good shape, even to win her first GS title this year. So please don't risk a hole season on one match...

Who's that girl ??
I remember Mary Pierce falling badly and Vera Zvonreva coming right away..
I remember Justine withdrawing from the Aus.Open and Mauresmo coming to check on her..

Olga Govortsova ?? no.. she wouldn't. :mad: I really do not like this attitude. It's not sporty.

While i`m glad that Ana won her match today, i`m very worried about her spranged ankle. :sad: She obviously was in some pain from the pictures i`ve just seen. Hopefully she`ll get some good treatment for it. Of course i wouldn`t have a problem if she withdrew from the tournament. This type of injury obviously is the type that tends to linger for a bit.

The Daviator

I would hate it if Ana withdraws, but then it's of course the best decision.
At Wimbledon she continued with leads to some withdraws of tournaments.

15:30 local time isn't that bad. I'm glad that won't start as early as in europe.

I don't like it when Ana lose, but this is even worse.
I'm fooling myself if I say that she will play tomorrow.

I dont want to see her tommorow! Even to play Dubai next week is already big risk if you ask me... She must be extreme careful to escape bigger problems with injuries.

She handled her health problems so far way better than other youngsters like Vaidisova, Golovin, Sharapova... and i expect of Ana and her team to continue with that.

:sad:

I should agree with you. I was already thinking that Dubai could be in doubt as well.
But I just don't want her to withdraw :sad:

Feb 21st, 2008, 08:44 AM
I think its best if she withdrew if her ankle got any worse, being healthy for a number of tournaments is better than just playing injured in one event. but whatever happens to ana i'm sure she will be okay.

Hey huys, here's a positive thought :
Even if she's injured right now..
Even if she can't defend her points for the clay court season...
Even if she gets out of the top 5...

IT IS ONLY a matter of time before she finishes n°1 and wins a Grand Slam !! If it's not in 2008, it'll be in 2009.. ^^
I don't care about her ranking anymore, because I know her abilities, her possibilities.. it WILL happen.. :bounce:

She has been taking lessons from Masha with Tati's ankle ;) I can say that being a Maria fan, none of the rest of you can :armed: :p

I didn't see her fall but judging by my own ankles she could be fine to play today... It might not have been as bad as it looks and I have no doubt she was in a lot of pain then but if her ankles are use to this, it may have bounced back pretty damn fast... if she plays with now strapping/braces i will be majorly pissed though! :mad:

My two top girls injuried/sick already :sad:

Dexter
Feb 21st, 2008, 02:20 PM

Yeah unfortunately you would have to think she'll be up against it to play in Dubai.

Ankle injuries are potentially very bad, lets hope it's not too bad and she's not out for too long. It would be such a shame if she has to miss an extended period of time.

rechi
Feb 22nd, 2008, 11:24 AM
I hope Ana takes the rest she needs. An ankle injury is usually bad and takes some time to heal. I don't expect her to play in Dubai and i'm concerned about if she's ready to play in Indian Wells. Hopefully she gets the best treatment and comes back soon....

I don't think that will change. It's different than last year (LA).

Ana just wants to play in Dubai. So she probably will wait till the last moment to decide if she really must withdraw.
I would say now it's 40-60.

Wow! :eek:

That is one comprehensive victory! Totally exceeded my expectations.

Dropping only 4 games to a top player, when in doubt to play? Awesome.

Wow!:eek:

That's pretty impressive. I didn't expect that kind of comeback. Ana's staff did a really great job, to make her fit for Dubai.

Good luck fo the next round!

Very impressive win over tough rival. :bounce:

I didn't expect her to come back so fast.

I believe this is going to be Ana's year. Only Sharapova can stop her. (I am not writing off Henin, but this year so far she isn't as good as she used to be.)

Oh damit Eva Asderaki is umpring... I can't stand her. She almost screwed Ana in the Montreal QF when she played against Kata. :o

Easy hold to get it underway. 2 nice FH winners. :yeah:

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 06:03 PM
1 all. 2 chances wasted for an early break. :( Hold on, Ana. Ajde!!!

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 06:11 PM
Ana holds for 2-1* saving 2 BPs. :yeah: Lena keeps on hitting to Ana's BH as expected and it often would break down. Break her now, ajde!!!

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 06:15 PM
Ana breaks for *3-1. Juicy return winners! :drool: Hold on, Ana. Ajde!!!

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 06:27 PM
Ana broken on a huge DF. :o Entertaining game though, she saved 3rd BP with an amazing FH pass DTL. Break back, ajde!!!

Break now. :cool:

The livestream annoys me so. Much better picture than the one yesterday, but it's always stopping and starting. This usually happens when the point starts too, so I am listening to their grunts while staring at a picture of the server going up for their serve. :o

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 06:49 PM
5 games all. Ana thought she got a SP after a FH DTL that was just long and started celebrating. :tape: Hold here please! Ajde!!!

Dexter

Good serving - Ana holds for 6-5*. :yeah: Break for the set this time, ajde!!!

Another game with a couple of twists and turns... 2 horrible FH errors to go down 0-30, then 3 genius pts... then errors, BP saved and finally she holds for 1-0*. Break her now, ajde!!!

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 07:08 PM

Dexter

Ana holds for 2-1*... usual drama on her service game... most of the games have to go over deuce. :tape: Please break her now, ajde!!!

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 07:14 PM
Ana has been so bad with her challenges. :spit:I know! :haha: I have a theory she wants to use them all up to have a free mind. Surely she knew the last one was wrong... it was so bad. :tape:

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 07:27 PM
4 UEs in a row. :tape: Ana took a picnic break in the middle of the set... why not when the match is over? :o Must hold here! Ajde!!!

Dexter
Feb 28th, 2008, 07:28 PM

Ana somehow breaks back for *3-5. Please hold here, will you? Ajde!!!

Dexter

Sad, because she had chances, but not surprising at all IMO. Dementieva is a bad-matchup for Ana, and always will be. Good chance to pick up even more points in IW & Miami now.

Both results are news to me, so pardon the late reaction for her even playing:banana::banana:, and one more for the bagel against Vaidisova:banana:
Ana doesnt lose in 3 sets very often, especially when winning 1st set. Elena's that kinda player. Bet it was a good fight. Glad Ana's ankle is good to go.:)

What a day yesterday.
I had to work till 6 and after that I had an important chess match.
Between that I had time to record Ana's match.

I came home at 1 AM. I lost my match and haven't played a good game for some time.
I lost and our team lost. Gladly I still have Ana to make the day.
Around 3:40 AM I finished watching her match which ended in a loss.

Lately I'm pretty calm watching Ana's matches, but not in this one.
I'm so dissapointed with the loss. And just angry that she lost.
I can't stand it at all!
Ana looked great at the start and both had a high level. After that you saw more and more errors.

I'm glad with Ana's shape. She moved really well in the match and played aggressive as she can. The bad side is that she made way too many errors. The serve wasn't there as well. First serve % wasn't bad, but she hit nothing with her serve. Only a few serve winners and no aces. With a better serve she really could win the match.
Forehand and backhand looked solid. Some great winners and it feels so goes to the right level.
Really frustrating that Dementieva had so much back. You really saw Ana was annoyed by that.
Lena looked like a machine at some times, but Ana had the match.
I guess it's the first time that Ana wasted a break lead in a 3rd set.
If she made it 4-2 then the match was really hers.

I'm still mad all day and dissapointed.
I'm not dissapointed in Ana, just in the result. She gave everything but it wasn't enough. I just hate this loss.

As last I want to say: Ana is just BRILLIANT at the net. Some volleys were just totally awesome. I hope she can use it more often. She's getting better and better.

I can't wait for Indian Wells.
Berlin is getting near as well!

AJDE ANA!!!
