ok, since she's not playing this week, my article's going in here. :)


Ranking Update

With a not-so-surprising loss to Amy Frazier, due to her impeccable sense of court experience in Japan for some odd reason, Anna picked up no points last week, leaving her stuck at number 19. Maleeva, number 17, but only 18.5 points ahead of Smashnova, is sure to fall behind. With 207 points this week to defend and an 18th tournament of 32 points and Serena Williams looming in her quarter, it is nearly impossible that she will hold enough to stay in front of Anna. However, the downside is that there are a few players that have the opportunity to pass her. Though unlikely, 23rd ranked Eleni Daniilidou, 27th ranked Tamarine Tanasugarn, and 28th ranked Daja Bedanova have a limited chance to pass Smashnova this week. Daniilidou, only 130 points behind, has the best chance, especially given her draw.

In other news, Anna still resides at number 14, a qualifying position, in the race to the championships. Like her entry ranking, Eleni Daniilidou is the only player with a possible chance at passing her this week.

Anna will be in action next week in order to gain points, though she is defending none for the rest of the year.

The positive news for Anna is that Maleeva, Daniilidou, and Bedanova all lost today in Leipzig.

Rittner beat Daniilidou
Hrdlickova beat Bedanova
Husarova beat Maleeva (went and checked)

Duh, did Anna play in Moscow? I have not seen anything about any matches in the forum for the tourney but heard she did badly there? :confused:

Does anybody have any info? Thanks. :)

Thanks Aaron. Poor Anna. :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad: :sad:

Maggie is definitely on a roll having beat Anna and Venus in the same tourney.

I thought it was strange that in the Moscow tourney forum there were no scores for Anna and Maggie's match or mention of who won.
