ok so the L.A draw has been made and our chak has drawn razzano, not a great draw but not terrible either. razzano can be very streaky so i give chak a good chance in this.

anyway i was suprised to see chak in LA as i was sure she was missing this tournament. does anyone know if she was a late entry or had her name down all along?

Probably a late entry. Seems like losing first round of Stanford wasn't part of the plan!

In theory Anna should be at her most confident on US hard courts. LA is just another opportunity to get a win which may spark her revival. Razzano can be streaky but I still feel like this is a trickier draw than Kirilenko which isn't good.

actually i prefer razzano to kirilenko. razzano will go for it most of the time so chak will play a lot of 'reaction' tennis. whereas i can imagine kirilenko hitting mid-paced topspin balls to chak and chak being in termoil as to whether to attack or rally with kirilenko. razzano will make the choices for anna, its going to be chak running a lot and she will know any easy ball she MUST attack.

i always feel chak has problems when she neither knows whether to attack or rally. when she plays a bit hitter like venus the choice is made for her she must play counter-puch tennis, hence usually playing well against venus.

All of Chaks matches are winnable. Razzano, Alla, Radwanska (who hasnt been to good this year). I say she can make the quarters. :)

c'mon Anna. She took the first set 7-6. Stay positive.

wooop our anna finally chalks up another win. i knew razzano would be a good draw, forcing chak into a gameplan.

next round is also winnable. this summer hardcourt season could be a turning point for chak, i truely hope she sees it as that.

woop a top 20 win as well.

Very good result against a Top 20 player! :bounce: Bit of a wobble at the end of the first set from what I saw but that's par for the course. Anna seemed to get herself out of some tight spots in this match which is encouraging.

Very nice final set score. I was a bit worried when she went behind in the second.

Michael.
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:24 PM
now who does she play ?

sammy01
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:29 PM
great that she played such a good final set when the pressure was on. 9 df's is too many but her serve is holding up ok.

back to back wins is great and if she could make it 3 that would be amazing.

penkku
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:30 PM
Anna :D two in a row :) make it three ;)

Michael.
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:36 PM
i think she plays either agi or ai sugiyama ? i think .

Daszmarelli
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:40 PM
Yeah, nice score. Two wins in row against decent players. It's fantastic.

Yeah, she'll face Aga or Sugiyama. She has chance.

Keep going Anna (my princess)

Michael.
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:40 PM
i hope she plays ai , two of my favorites against each other , haha

Duramont

A solid victory from Anna with a breadstick to finish - 2 wins in a row now :woohoo:

i hope she plays ai , two of my favorites against each other , haha

I hope that too. :)

Michael.
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:53 PM
they haven't played for a while either , and they're both different players from the last time they played so it would be great .

agi vs chakvetadze would be a really good match too though .

Pink Princess
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:55 PM
Princess Anna Chakvetadze!!!:clap2::clap2::clap2:

3rd Round:

A. Chakvetadze vs. A. Radwanska or A. Sugiyama

sammy01
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:57 PM
i dont think sugi has a chance aghainst radwanska, but chak vs aga isn't a bad match up for anna. shes beaten aga twice from 2 matches and aga will not serve her off the court or power her off.

Michael.
Aug 5th, 2009, 09:58 PM
yeah , i think the agi chakvetadze would be a really great match .

Aug 5th, 2009, 10:01 PM
if anna makes it through radwanska/sugiyama who is the next possibly opponent ?

Carol, Sabine, Makarova or Sori.

:o i think thats a bit too much lol, lets just say 3 1/2 hours, and because her doubles goes so late she misses her ride to the hotel and has to carry her bags and rackets the 2 mile walk back to the hotel lol :devil::p

i dont think sugiyama will last even 2 hours .

or she could do it on court, where everyone sees? double bagel or is that asking too much?

she gives the opponent free points and that's makes me sick sometimes !

yep, this is a match she knows she can win, which may help her. its no coincidence that her 3 best wins this year, jankovic, AMG and razzano she has very good records against.
