nice 1st round for anna, she needs to prove last weeks improved form wasn't a flash in the pan, putting in a convincing win against VRP would be a good start.

Wintermute

Anna needs to take it one match at a time and she really needs to bring some of the grit she showed against Venus.

Have fun Pink Princess and takes lots of nice pics.

There we go. Anna wins over Virginia, 6-4 6-3. :bounce:

Good result but the first set was very shaky. Anna squandered several set points and was broken quite a few times. She needs to give a more robust performance to keep advancing.

i agree but pulling that set out must help the confidence and playing a better 2nd set must be a nice little confidence boost to.

surely she can only take heart from the last 2 weeks, knowing shes starting to play better and winning matches.

good luck next match chak!

Anna looks hot.

About the match. She played Sam twice before, 1-1. and Anna won in clay, but in the tie break of 3rd set.

I think Aga was easier but I'm confident. And maybe upset Sveta in third round, beacuse Sveta has played a lot in two last weeks, with two finals in row, she can be tired.

Pink Princess
May 10th, 2009, 08:38 PM
Anna plays in Arantxa Sanchez Vicario Stadium!!!

Sigh. :shrug: Broken at the beginning of the second set too.

Wintermute

At 2-2 in the second and Anna hadn't won a single point on second serve all match. Then out of the blue she serves a second serve ace!

Seems being down 0-3 0-4 (2breaks) in first set she becomes too nervous...... and she can calm down only between sets

at least she fights

im dissapointed but not too much. chak hadn't won back to back matches and shes done that at her last 2 tournaments, if she can do it at RG then i'll be very pleased as clay is her worst surface.

Spiritof42
May 14th, 2009, 02:21 PM
Anna's biological clock was not quite ready for a 10 AM start apparently. :o

It's all about gaining or losing momentum with her. :shrug:

At least she wasn't blown away in two sets.

charlieluvtennis
May 14th, 2009, 06:36 PM
Unlucky for today Anna :hug: The only thing that bothered me about this lost was that Anna got bagel again :o but otherwise it was a good run for her this week... Lets hope shes capable of making a better impact at RG :hehehe:

Wintermute
May 14th, 2009, 06:47 PM
Anna's getting bagelled way too much recently. She needs to be quicker off the mark in these matches. Continual slow starts are just going to put her at a disadvantage time and again. Having said that she seems to play better when she's behind.

Derek.
May 15th, 2009, 03:30 AM
Anna. :sobbing:
I thought she'd win this one. :(
