A year ago I'd have been reasonably happy with this draw. Right now the first round looks like a major hurdle.

Most of her year has been a hurdle. I'm interested in seeing how she overcomes the first round mentally, since she had the Pilot Pen championship in her hands.

Come on Anna! :bounce:
:) please do well in Beijing!

Anna Chavky plays against Qualifier or LL instead of Caroline, I am sure about this!!!
Sep 21st, 2008, 04:11 PM
The withdrawal of Safina means Wozniacki becomes 9th seed so Anna now plays a qualifier instead. I guess that's better.
Sep 21st, 2008, 09:58 PM
That's a pretty good quarter to be in

Cool, she gets a qualifier. Let's hope she doesn't take her lightly.
Sep 22nd, 2008, 01:01 AM
Anna, do something :unsure:

Anna plays lucky loser Iveta Benesova in Round One. Benesova was 2nd seed in qualies but lost to Shvedova in the last round. Is this a good draw for Anna? I'm not sure any more.
I guess the switch-around in the draw didn't help Caro - she lost to AMG.

Anna wins 64 75:bigclap::bigclap::bigclap:

anna has put a win on the board which was badly needed, she would realy be down if she had lost 4 straight matches in a row.
some great points but 0 confidence, domi is a winnable match next round but anna has to stay with it mentaly.

Thank God !! I was so worried when she screwed a 4-1 lead then 5-3 lead in second set. She really needs to get some buffer points soon because she definately wont play Madrid where she has QF pts.

Come on Anna :)
Keep working hard :yeah:
Sep 23rd, 2008, 08:49 PM
It'll be a minor miracle for Anna to beat Domi right now.
Sep 23rd, 2008, 09:35 PM
Domi is Anna's next opponent in singles but is also her doubles partner this week!
They play AMG and Caro on Wednesday.
Sep 23rd, 2008, 11:23 PM
nice win for Anna :bounce:, it'll be an interesting match against domi :)
Sep 24th, 2008, 10:59 AM
AMG + CW Beat Anna + Domi 6:3 6:2 :confused:
Hope now Anna can just focus on her singles and do well!
Davai Anna :bounce:

I want A. Chakvetadze vs. A. Kudryavtseva in QFs
Sep 24th, 2008, 08:15 PM
Good luck Anna! :)
Sep 25th, 2008, 07:28 AM
Oh Anna. :sad: I feared she would find it tough against Cibulkova the way Anna has been playing recently. Still awaiting the return to form.
Sep 25th, 2008, 08:05 AM
Sent packing by Cibulkova with a 6-3, 6-2 score ! 'till when will this "joke" lasts ? Come on Anna, get real.
Sep 25th, 2008, 01:34 PM
:bigcry: Anna! :bigcry:
Not another disappointing result :sad:
Sep 25th, 2008, 04:45 PM
Anna got killed out there. :sad:
