In 2002 Eleni was one of my favorite female players. I saw her playing in ´s-Hertogenbosch where she beat Justine Henin-Hardenne in a true thriller. She´s still young, but what about the other Greek female players. What about Anna Gerassimou......quarterfinalist in Athens (25.000). Is she the next Daniilidou or was she just lucky?

In two weeks(5/5-5/11), she is definetly going to play, but I have no idea where. She is on the entry list for 5 tournaments. If she goes to Turkey 25k, she will be in the qualies. She is the nxt one to get into the Italy 25k and Romania 50k qualies. She is already in the qualies in the Lebanon 50k, and an alternate in the Croatia 75k tournament. I think that she should either go to Turkey, Romania, or Lebanon. The fields is too large for a 25k in Italy, and she probably wont get into the Croatia 75k qualies, let along the main draw. What do you think?

hellas719
Apr 22nd, 2008, 02:15 PM
Never mind. She just chose that she will play in the Lebanon 50k+Hospitality tournament. She moved up many spots, and now she is in the main draw. Stamatia Fafaliou is in qualifying there. Maybe they will play doubles together.

hellas719
Apr 22nd, 2008, 02:20 PM
I just found out that she will be playing in the qualies in Fes.

hellas719
Apr 25th, 2008, 05:15 PM
Does anyone know who she is playing tommorow? Where can I finf the Fes qualifying draw?

hellas719
Apr 25th, 2008, 05:31 PM
Never mind. She is the 7th seed, and she has a first round bye. In the 2nd round, she will either face Kelly Liggan(Gerasimou has a good record against her), or Kelly Anderson of South Africa(Is that Kevin Anderson's sister?). In the final round, she will either face the no.1 seed Aleksandra Wozniak(last years runner up), fellow compatriot Stamatia Fafaliou, or a Moroccoan wild card.

hellas719
Apr 26th, 2008, 09:52 PM
Tomorrow, she faces the South African, Kelly Anderson. Pame Anna!

hellas719

She is trapped in Lebanon with other tennis players. Nobody knows when the players are going to get to leave, but they are staying in a hotel, because it is too dangerous to leave. Now, she has to withdraw from Poland 25k:(

hellas719

(Q)Andrea Petkovic GER def. (5)Anna Gerasimou GRE 62 62 :sad::sad::sad::sad::sad:. But great try, Anna. Tomorrow, she will get a new career-high ranking, and she will most likely crack the top 220. If she won, she would've cracked the top 210 and maybe top 205, but it's okay. Andrea was a top100 player in the beginning of the year. Den pirazei, Anna/

merda2004
Nov 2nd, 2008, 02:57 PM
yea its sad she lost but at least she gave it her all!and she made the final!!!
i think its time for anna as well as many of the other girls to move on and try different things and coaches and of course to visit different academies!!!

She is almost to good for 25k's. She has to start playing 50k's and 75k's. But her coach is great, Kalovelonis, a former Greek player himself.

merda2004
Nov 3rd, 2008, 06:24 PM
what i dont understand is why the young girls dont play/go to big tournaments!arent they good enough for lets say
AO etc?
as about annas coach yes her coach may be good but...isnt it time to make the next step?

hellas719
Nov 3rd, 2008, 06:29 PM
Her rank didn't even make the huge jump it was supposed to. She moved up ONE SPOT! Her points from this week's tourney weren't counted in, so maybe she will make a huge jump next year. Merda2004, exactly. She keeps playing 25k's and either winning, reaching the final, or occasionally the SF. She played a 50k+H 2 weeks ago and lost to the #1 seed in the QF. She needs to play more events like that starting in 2009.

merda2004
Nov 3rd, 2008, 07:08 PM
i agree and as i am keep saying all the time they need (all the young girls)to move abroad!its about time to make the big step!other players with the same age have achieved so much more!!!they are talented but they need to see/try new things!sharapova for example went to america.why dont they try to see if it will work?

Yea. I would prefer having her go to france or spain, but i picture her going to florida. in the tarpon springs area, there is a very very very very big greek community, and she will fit in. i just would rather have her go to europe, because the us tries to 'steal' players from other countries sometimes. I am almost positive that if sampras was born a few years earlier, he would've been born in greece, but he would've played for the us anyways cuz they steal a lot of players. Anyways, i think that she already trains in spain or france, b/c she plays a lot of back to back tournaments there.

Same goes for despina.

No. I would only want to see that happen, if she plays very well, and so will Eleni. I would hate for Anna to be ranked even 100 in the world and be the number 1 Greek. If Anna is #100, then Eleni should be #20.:wavey:

merda2004
Nov 11th, 2008, 06:19 PM
why not?if anna plays well then why not?and for eleni to be back in the top 20 will take time and efford.if she is willing to train hard then it will happen.if she listens to jaz or whomever then i dont see it happening!

I just think that Eleni has more potential than Anna, that's all. In my opinion, if Anna is a top 100 player(which would be great and should happen), then Eleni should be a top20 player. If Anna can play her best, then so should Eleni. My dream would be for Eleni to get a very very very good coach, and ditch Jaz in doubles for Anna. Anna is 10 times better than Jaz, even in doubles. Then, all we would need is Anna to convince Eleni to play Fed Cup, and we would have worldgroup2 potential(if Eleni is top20 and Anna is top100). And by then, Stamatia, Despina and Irini would all have better ranks. All we would need is for Baghdatis to re-enter the top10, Economidis and Mazarakis to re-enter top150 and maybe further and we could get a HopmanCupTeam:bounce:. That's all folks:)

i agree that eleni should get a good coach.i have said the same myself.i agree that eleni should get rid of jaz!have said the same as well....and of course anna is better than jaz!so we agree in 3/3 lol.
but i dont get what u said about anna and top 100 and eleni being in top 20.it doesnt work like that!if eleni doesnt try and work hard she will never be top 20 again.in the other hand anna is always trying and with a good coach can easily move up.anna at the moment (my thoughts and opinion) is that she wants to move up.eleni hasnt got the same drive anymore!and as u can see she still trains with jaz and other german coaches.anyway.thats a long discussion

Me too:sad:. She lost her last match in her last tournament(in Delhi) 4-1 ret., but it was in doubles so maybe it was her partner from Estonia that got injured :shrug:

However, she did withdraw on December 8th or 9th which was well before the Delhi tournamet, so maybe she doesn't want go to Australia, since it is a hard trip for some girls, especially since the ones outside of the top100 don't make much money, and/or don't feel like paying a lot of money to go down there and probably not even qualify. Anna isn't on any entry lists for the tourneys that came out already, and I'm kid of worried, but more lists for ITF's come out on thursday, so we'll see.

Well, there are no challengers in the next few weeks in Europe, and it's expensive for some of these girls to go down to Australia to probably lose in QR1.

yea but she doesnt know that.and what kind of mentality/or way of thinking is this?
u go 2 tournaments 2 win.not 2 think u will lose!
She should have made the trip and try her best.
2 me this is still strange.afterall she travelled 2 china 4 olympics and lost in 1st round.

Yes, but the Olympics are different. That was a different story. A- it is a good experience. B-Eleni needed a Greek doubles partner, and Anna was her best option. C- she knew she'd be in MD of doubles anyways. D- a lot of girls from various countries don't make the trip to Australia for AO, b/c it is a lot of money and it is hard for them.

christos, I'm sure if it was RG or Wimbledon she would've gone.

The draw for $25,000 Surprise, AZ, USA came out. Anna is seeded 8, and drew a qualifier (TBD) in the first round. In the second round, Anna will either face a qualifier, or Veronica Spiegel of Argentina, both should be easy matches for Anna:).

Quotes:
I sat court side and watched Kaitlyn Christian's match against Anna earlier today. Anna just plain and simply got out played. Kaitlyn is planning on attending USC after high school from what I heard. Kaitlyn has speed and outstanding defense on her side. She has a real nice slice backhand that she mixes in and it is throwing off a lot of her opponents. I can't even count how many times her opponents hit the ball long or into the net after Kaitlyn hit a short slice over the net. She's playing really well right now. It's going to take an opponent with more experience and an overall bigger game to beat her. Someone not bothered by slice or long points. Oh and you guys are crazy if you think she's on steroids. She is quite athletic but c'mon. Kaitlyn is not from Surprise or near here - I think she is from Southern Cal.

:haha: Oh you guys! Kaitlyn is definitely not on steroids. She is a very strong USTA player, who hasn't had much experience elsewhere. She has game and she is probably on fire right now, perhaps this is just her big break. I highly doubt steroids.

Just did a quick little bit of research and she's not that bad. She's rated as 4th best US highschool girl of her school year. Only ones ahead of her are Ahn, McHale and Gibbs.

i just go to speak with julia glushko by phone now , she said me that katlin christian played very good , so it will be a dificult match for julia , good luck julia !!!

And a quote from a PM of mine about Anna's game:

Hi Andrew,
I didn't get any video or pictures of Anna, sorry. I am the racquet stringer there this week so I just go out and watch matches when I don't have any racquets that need to be strung. From what I remember, Anna plays mostly from the baseline and has a nice 2-handed backhand. Her forehand is good but she does not move her opponent around with it very much like she could. In terms of potential I think she could make the top 75 (maybe top 50) in the world if she worked hard and improved on her strategy a little. She did not attack short balls as often as she could - maybe she is not so comfortable at the net yet, I'm not sure. Overall she has good potential though. I liked watching her play.

Gerards is a good player, but Anna should've won in like 3 sets or something. I don't know what happened to Anna. She's lost three matches in a row now, and 4 of her last 5. Gerards had 16 aces according to a Dutch poster. I hope Anna will play doubles this tournament, but I doubt it.

According to a poster, Anna won:woohoo:
The score was not said though, but she will play against 6th seeded Aiko Nakamura of Japan tomorrow:scared:. Nakamura crushed Lucic today:eek:. Nakamura is coming back from an injury, but let's not forget the 2007 AO, when Eleni was seeded and lost 4 and 0 to Nakamura:o

EDIT-Nakamura was ranked as high as 47. This could be another signature win for Anna. Her biggest was beating Suarez Navarro last year. Pame Anna!!!! Pull off another upset!!!!:bounce:

hellas719
Mar 5th, 2009, 02:04 AM
The score was 7-6(2) 2-6 6-1.
Anna:yeah:

If she can beat Nakamura tomorrow, she can really go far, as both of her possible opponents are ranked lower than her and are fellow qualifiers. El Tabakh(a qualifier) beat the #1 seed 3-1 ret. This really opens up the draw for the Anna-Nakamura winner:D. Anna probably didn't play doubles since she is playing singles every day for the past few days, so it might be too much for her atm:shrug:

Anna's Upcoming Schedule:

4/21-27 Fed Cup Sliema, Malta O-Hard
4/28-5/3 $100,000+H Cagnes-Sur-Mer, France (Q; Anna is MDO) O-Clay or
$50,000 Makarska, Croatia (MD) 0-Clay
5/4-10 $100,000 Bucharest, Romania (Q) 0-Clay or
$25,000 Florence, Italy (Q) 0-Clay or
$75,000 Zagreb, Croatia (A) 0-Clay

Or maybe she'll play some WTA qualies:unsure:

It's good that Anna is playing in Europe now (weaker EL's than the US), but it would be even better if she went to play challengers in Africa/Asia/Oceania, as in some tourneys, players ranked out of the top 900 are in the MD of challengers. In 100K Johannesburg, Nicole Clerico, #458 is in the MD:o. I hope Anna can do good at her next tourneys so it won't be a big mistike:shrug:. I guess Europe was better for Anna geographically speaking and it's cheaper to travel without crossing continets. The following week (week of May 11th), Anna will probably play the 50K in France, as it is the only European challenger that week, and she has no chance at making qualies in WTA Madrid. Then, probably RG qualies.

Baltacha is probably not good on clay considering where she trains. Vedy and Vongsouthi are both ranked lower than Anna, so Anna has an advantage over them. QR3 will be tough though, no matter who Anna faces:scared:

Let's take it match by match though;)

She played singles on Saturday and lost too but it was close like 5-7 4-6 or something; against Greta Arn. I have a couple of pics, but I can't upload them as my aptop is not on the net (this is the laptop of a friend). I will try to upload all my pics when I can get my laptop online...but it may take a couple more weeks.

Dutchie, how did she play against Arn?
Weapons? Weaknesses? How bad was her serve? How good was her backhand? What is her potential? Can she crack the top 100?

DutchieGirl
Jun 3rd, 2009, 07:27 AM
Wow - I think top 100 would be hard. She made too many unforced errors, but it was a farly close match and Arn is a good player. I think Anna just needs to get some confidence back with a few wins and then maybe she would have won that match against Arn (if she had more confidence).

And I'm speechless about Kostas too. What a waste of talent:o

DutchieGirl
Jun 6th, 2009, 11:08 PM
Yeah, Anna played really bad today. :sad: (I was there). I aw the first set of Economidis and I kinda like him, but he shoulkd have really lost the first set. He was down 3-5, then he served for 4-5 and then he was lucky to break for 5-5 and so on, but he was always making the errors in the rallies.

Here is a small article from tennisnews.gr about Anna in Zlin last week;)

Στο 2ο γύρο σταμάτησε η Γερασίμου
http://www.tennisnews.gr/images/news_images/Gerassimou/465-gerasimou7.jpg

Στο τουρνουά $50,000 'Zlin 2009' της ομώνυμης πόλης της Τσεχίας αγωνίστηκε την εβδομάδα που μας πέρασε η Άννα Γερασίμου. Η Νο1 Ελληνίδα στην παγκόσμια κατάταξη της WTA (203) ξεκίνησε καλά στον πρώτο γύρο και νίκησε την Ρωσίδα Vesna MANASIEVA, Νο 166 στον κόσμο με 7-5, 6-4. Στον δεύτερο γύρο αντιμετώπισε μία ακόμη δυνατή αθλήτρια, την Darya KUSTOVA από τη Λευκορωσία από την οποία έχασε με 2-0 σετ (6-1, 6-3) και αποκλείστηκε από το τουρνουά.
