I knew she could win this match.. its R2 she will most likely suck again for and lose. She played well and Marion's serving was obviously not as GOAT like as it was last week.

She probably should have withdrew from this event not looking fit at all.
But at least you tried played it out to the end :)
And miraculously still in top 20 :D

I give Bartoli big credit for her win against Ivanovic in Stanford (for some reason Marion always there playing high TOP10 level of tennis), despite in that time Ana still not rise her game on Cincinnati/USO level. But when she trashed Ana in Tokyo 6-2 6-1 there is nothing to congrats to her at all, because despite I not watch that match, I know whats happen there when Bartoli with hers nothing special serve won all 19 points when her 1st serve is in, or won 6-1 2nd set despite just 30% of her 1st serve is in, and I think she broke Ana's serve in that match 4 or even 5 time in the row :help: So that victory obviously much more has to do with Ana, than with Bartoli :shrug:

Today no big surprise for whats happen in this match, but like I say about Ana right after Beijing draw is released - It's really great that she has opportunity to revenge Bartoli, but its worst possible scenario to be in same quarter with two players in best shape after US Open - Wozniacki and Dementieva, which both is very motivated (b/c #1 and YEC race), and for both fast hardcourts are for sure favorite surface (unlike Ana case) :sad:

Actually from what I've seen, Marion is capable of some sublime service displays when she's on. Check out her match against Jankovic at the Australian Open 2009. Although she's very rarely on, so I agree for the most part that Marion's serve is average.

I can't call Brisbane, Rome, Cincy, or the USO a fluke if she gets a good result here. She's just inconsistent as hell if she does.

Not saying that she is going to have a Coronation in China or something clever, but still...

This seems to be her favorite score these days: 6-2, 6-3 or 6-3, 6-2. She is either unplayable or dismal, no middle ground. Oh well, lets see how she does in the next match.

She's gone from being completely sucky to completely random, I guess it's an improvement. In her last 5 events, she's played several terrific matches, only to bomb out sooner or later :o Please beat Olga :o

Nice win by Ana! :hearts: :bounce:

Ana is so up and down these past couple of months. Either she wins easily or loses badly. Wildly inconsistent, but that's better than what she was before; consistently bad. Hopefully she will find some consistency closing out the season. She "should" beat Govortsova. Would be nice to see Ana string together a few wins at the end of this season and get back into the top 30 and be seeded for the Australian Open. :)

this is where the problem lies...until she gets this back she'll remain ranked where she is unless she gets hot and wins A LOT more than she loses

Such an x-treme match, with VIPAnci winning tons of points with a couple of shots at most. VIPAnci can't really rally on hardcourts (not with that LOL BH), so she didn't even try. ROS = winner or homerun. And since she had a good serving day, it was smooth sailing.

Bartoli's game plan was to hit the ball very deep into VIPAnci's BH (which = point won nearly all the time), but she overhit way too often. Time and again it becomes evident that she's one of the players against whom it is easier to hit winners from the baseline, and this match was no exception (not that VIPAnci didn't hit a number of huge shots that would have been winners against anyone). And with such a low 1st serve %, she was at the mercy of VIPAnci's baseball batter ROS.

If VIPAnci makes her way to Undisputed #1 GOATniacki as seems likely right now (say 80% chance), she can cause her some problems. Or perhaps more accurately, she could cause her some problems, if she wasn't pretty much all serve these days. Still, VIPAnci has the overwhelming firepower required to avoid letting herself get dragged into rallies with Wozniacki, and even if she's forced to play a not so x-treme high risk game, one must not forget that Wozniacki's ball bounces up right into her hitting zone - winning points by hitting flat into VIPAnci's BH corner isn't an option for Wozniacki. But if it comes down to rallies, I suspect Wozniacki will find a way to just loop the ball into VIPAnci's BH corner all the time and keep her pinned to it.
