Good luck Princess. She is hitting the ball well again, her fitness is back and has new coaching. :bounce::bounce:

Jun 29th, 2010, 12:54 PM
i don't think she will get into the main draw, but going through qualies wont be a bad thing.

lets hope she can keep her recent better form going.

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:47 AM
chak is now in the MD, she might make a few MD's of these small european tournaments.

:bounce::bounce: Go Chak, she can beat most of the ones in the draw

Jul 1st, 2010, 01:12 PM
well the top seed is kleybanova, so that shows you how weak the tournament is. theres also kostanic using a special rank and has played for over 6 months, and peng who has been off the tour for a couple of months. it is a really weak tournament. lets hope chak can take advantage.

Jul 1st, 2010, 03:12 PM
Go, Anna!

Jul 1st, 2010, 10:27 PM
so glad to hear she won't play qualies! Good Luck Anna! :)

Jul 1st, 2010, 11:08 PM
:woohoo: im actually very excited for this tournament - so many of my faves are playing!!
go Anna - notch some wins here!

Jul 2nd, 2010, 12:40 AM
Hopefull for a great draw.

Jul 2nd, 2010, 01:34 AM
i feel she will shock us by winning the title !! Yeah! one can dream.
go Princess :)

MD is either tomorrow or sunday, hope the draw gods are smiling on chak, she could do well here with a good draw.

Good draw! Great chance! Good luck!

Jul 3rd, 2010, 04:55 PM
GL Anna - good first round opponent i'd say, but Dulgheru (almost certainly) in round 2 probably means trouble.
the girls obviously competent on clay, but still, i'd like to see how her game matches up with Anna's (if shes playing well)
Good luck Anna!!

i agree. chak's 1st round looks very very good, she is a huge favourite to win that. dulgheru loves the clay so chak should be the underdog if they meet but will be a good chance to test out her game.

Jul 3rd, 2010, 10:18 PM
She had luck in the first round, but Alexandra can be tough one. Well, she can beat her of course.

Jul 3rd, 2010, 10:29 PM
the 2nd round against Dulgheru makes me kinda nervious but Anna can totally beat her! GO ANNA!

Jul 4th, 2010, 01:07 PM
She's playing doubles with Hercog. They faces Pivovarova and Yakimova in debut.

Jul 4th, 2010, 01:07 PM
Good luck Anna!

Jul 4th, 2010, 01:59 PM
i love it when chak plays doubles. it gives her a chance to hit serves and returns in a match but without the pressure.

looks like a winnable 1st round of doubles to.

Jul 4th, 2010, 05:37 PM
chak plays her 1st singles match tomorrow on center court, the 3rd match on and play starts at 11am local time.

Break My Rapture
Jul 5th, 2010, 04:31 PM
Polanna should win their R1 in doubles without too many fuss as well. Hope they're on CC tomorrow. :D

Jul 5th, 2010, 04:35 PM
there on court 3 last tomorrow, but need to be as hercog has a singles match the same day to.

it will be fun to follow on livescores anyway.

Jul 5th, 2010, 04:40 PM
solid win from our Chak.:drool:
the next round will a real test for her.hope she shows her best in the next match.
i'm really happy that i saw her. i didn't see her in wimbly.
good luck Princess.:bounce::hearts:

Jul 5th, 2010, 04:40 PM
Oh too bad. :lol: Good luck Polanna. :hearts:

Jul 5th, 2010, 04:49 PM
Good luck to Chakvelona:)

Jul 5th, 2010, 04:56 PM
yesss what a scoreline!!!
i think i actually had a dream where she won 60 62, and then she goes and wins 62 60!
but didn't see it unfortunately, but from what you guys have said it sounds like she played real well.
hopefully a CC match again against likely Dulgheru on Wednesday!

Jul 5th, 2010, 08:04 PM
Anna. :bowdown:

Jul 5th, 2010, 09:29 PM
Anna Chakvetadze def. Mariya Koryttseva 6-2 6-0

:bounce: Hell yeah! Great start to the tournament. I can't actually think who Koryttseva is, but I don't care at this point. This is hopefully the way Anna means to continue at this event.

Jul 5th, 2010, 09:47 PM
Well Koryttseva didn't played well, but Anna deserves the credit. She played a solid tennis, with a lot winners and went to the line. In the first set her service was a bit awful, but it improved and she won the match easily.

Jul 6th, 2010, 10:57 AM

Jul 6th, 2010, 10:17 PM
Wow! Anna and Polona won their first round doubles too. :banana: Looks like a really close one. I'm liking this tournament right now.

Anna is last on Centre Court tomorrow against Dulgheru.

Jul 6th, 2010, 10:47 PM
:woohoo: good job Anna! Keep it up girl! :)

King Halep
Jul 6th, 2010, 10:48 PM
I hope she wins.

Jul 6th, 2010, 10:50 PM
i am always so much happier when chak plays doubles as well, i think it helps her game and gives chak a less pressured match to enjoy tennis. a win is a bonus.

Jul 6th, 2010, 10:53 PM
im actually super excited for the match against Dulgheru tomorrow, and should be able to watch a good portion on my lunch break!!
GO ANNA - play your game and good things likely will happen!!

Jul 6th, 2010, 11:26 PM
Good luck, Anna! Hope can watch her match 2morrow!

Jul 6th, 2010, 11:30 PM
Good luck Anna! :cheer:

Good luck Anna. :hearts:

Jul 7th, 2010, 07:36 PM
Great comeback from Anna after losing a very tight 1st set. :yeah:

I don't understand why the Budapest organizers insist on scheduling the second match not before 1:45 PM, and the third not before 4:00 PM. The first match on center court was over in less than an hour, and almost two hours were wasted waiting for the next match to begin. Pretty dumb scheduling when you're not equipped to play after dark. :rolleyes:

Jul 7th, 2010, 09:58 PM
Second tomorrow following Ondraskova and Vinci.

She also is scheduled to play doubles. Third on court5 not before 16:00h and after her suitable rest

Jul 7th, 2010, 10:04 PM
lets hope she can come out and win tomorrow, then enjoy the doubles

King Halep
Jul 7th, 2010, 10:16 PM
Lame scheduling. Dulgheru was not playing so well. Hope Anna finishes her off.

Jul 7th, 2010, 10:21 PM
Dulgheru seemed to be very tired. It was unfair. Anna would finish that match in about 20 minutes. The night could wait a bit to fall.

Jul 7th, 2010, 10:28 PM
well if lex was tired yesterday, shes not going to recover much in 15 hours, if anything she might struggle to get her legs and body going at all tomorrow.

King Halep
Jul 7th, 2010, 10:28 PM
I was hoping she would finish off the first set before it got to a tiebreak.

I dont know, hope you are right. I thought it was just her head that was getting tired.

Jul 8th, 2010, 01:44 AM
Come out strong tomorrow Anna! :D

Jul 8th, 2010, 01:50 PM
Unfortunately Anna lost, but hey she plays some beautiful shots and points, so I'm confident for the future, she is playing good tennis now for sure.

Jul 8th, 2010, 02:28 PM
OH MAN. :o
Anna. :hug:

Jul 8th, 2010, 04:07 PM
Let's go Anna! :cheer:

Jul 8th, 2010, 06:34 PM
(2) Alexandra Dulgheru def. Anna Chakvetadze 7-6(7-5) 1-6 6-2

Ugh! :( So disappointing.

Well, I'm gonna blame the scheduling! :lol: If they'd been able to continue their match last night I'm sure Anna would have won. I guess she'll just have to rue the chances missed in the first set tiebreak. It could easily have been a straight sets win.

Jul 8th, 2010, 07:03 PM
Anna :hug: for both doubles and singles.

Jul 8th, 2010, 10:22 PM
the princess tried her best. thanks for the moments anna.:D
her game is getting better and better.she can get her form back soon hopefuly.

King Halep
Jul 8th, 2010, 10:37 PM
I think her game is okay now, she needs to keep a calm head. That match was completely winnable.

Jul 9th, 2010, 05:34 AM
oooh no.
i was so afraid that she would lose the continued third set, as she was in the groove and much less tired than Dulgheru at the end of Wednesday...
but she really played quite well in patches, and that second set was classic solid chaky from the past. i hope she can continue improving in the upcoming tournaments and maybe make that now elusive semifinal???? hahaha im probably dreaming but we'll see.

ps - GREAT new avatar Shuai-Goat; thats one of my favorite new Anna photos!!
